There is still an incredibly large amount of stuff pending. I still need to catch up on all of these threads I've missed. You should check out >>121165651 and http://pastebin.com/0Fvn3DKj for a bunch of news that's been compiled while I was gone. I will continue to try and get properly caught up. I'm sorry about all this.
Check out the PREVIOUS links below for past news.

Rin is my wife.
She is adorable, beautiful, fun and intelligent.
I love her so much.
Currently have this set up:
Plan on keeping it fairly clean. The pages at the bottom auto-sort based on sheet name criteria.
As long as people keep it within reason, changing colors for font and cell background for your row is fine.
Just make sure to protect your range after you're done so only you can edit it and I can go back in and format things if you do dumb shit. Most should be self explanitory, try to either do Rarity Name or Name Rarity for center and I'll format them later. You don't have to really add anything other than ID + Name, but protect all of your ranges.
Stole a lot from /fgog/'s spreadsheet. Hopefully people like this idea, if it doesn't gain traction we can leave it to flounder or I can kill it, up to the thread.
If there are any questions or suggestions or you want to be faggots just let me know and I'll implement them. This is in semi-rough draft phase but I can't think of anything to change at the moment without info being added.
A wild Jal appeared!
>I'm sorry about all this.
Yeah, you better be
not sorry about anything, because between being behind and dying permanently, well...i-it's not like I care about you or anything, okay? Forget it!
People asked for Group last thread, it's useful if you autism makes you want to find others in group.
Center level because I'm retarded and feel like giving more info.
Notes so you can add if you swap centers frequently or put down how many slots you have open without needing its own column.
Shitposting because why the fuck not.
Like I said only real things you need to put are ID and Name, everything else is extra. You not seeing a need doesn't mean others don't.
>there are P's right here not spending money on SS
If I like something enough, I'll invest money into it. But for now, I'm whoring out on the F2P aspect of it as much as I can.
Besides, without doing the research, I'm have no immediate knowledge on how to set myself up to buy things on SS...and that's a good thing.
Oh the things I would do to those legs.
Mio version when?
Does /@/ brush their teeth regularly? Your favorite idols wouldn't like it if you had bad teeth and bad breath.
After breakfast and dinner. Can't be bothered to bring my toothbrush and some toothpaste to work.
Also, I don't understand why anime people brush their teeth before breakfast.
The last time I brushed my teeth before a meal the minty flavor invaded my dinner and ruined it.
Once every 2-3 days.
I'm also fat and ugly, as well as having a pig like nose.
Can't all be puritans like the rest of you.
Christ, is my phone just shit or what? It's an S5 mini I bought in July. I disabled all unneeded apps from the start and I don't have any other apps running in the background. Four times already have I failed grooves because it randomly starts lagging, getting choppy, freezing, and de-syncing. I'd be hitting all perfects and then all nices. Feels bad, man. At least this event isn't like NB and I still have enough points despite this.
I was looking at the Megahouse WUO Rin figure the other day, and I find it rather sad when a fucking Banpresto figure looks a lot better than a Megahouse figure does. Some companies really need to get their shit together.
Can't wait for those to pop up on the Rulers of Time for like, a handful of moneys so I can get one.
I have to shake the shit out of my controller to brush my teeth.
Turns out that im@s 2's files (at least for 360) are probably only encrypted, not a combo of encrypted + compressed, though there is a difference of 80 bytes between the cipher and the plaintext.
Also, I figured out that the files that hold the textures for the models can be decompressed with xbdecompress.exe.
Also, I'm about 90% done with Chihaya's route.
Why are cool idols so cute, it makes no sense.
Because they're able to cover all the bases. Cool outer aura, cute when flustered, and they can be sexy when they want.
Some Cutes and Passions could pull it off, but Scamco has a strong Cool bias.
It's hardly Scamco's fault that cool is inherently the best.
Next ML batch card update should be soon posted (from 2ch), hopefully.
That won't be a problem because it's really easy to rank.
Just play enough to stay ranked for one card, if you want.
He's lumping you with the others who complain. Can't say I blame him because it's not that big of a deal.
I wouldn't mind this event if the FCs at least counted for the actual song clears.
It would be better if the prizes were some decent idols too rather than Yuko for 10k/15k points and that literally who for top 100k.
I haven't touched this event at all. After getting burned out from the Nation Blue event, I actually haven't played since then, except to get on for daily login rewards and gacha rolls.
While it sucks, the system in the eventis different being that the combos total are tallied at the end of the 3rd song. It's also cheaper too (50 total for 3 Master songs and Master+).
Also Yukari a cute.
>only can buy 200 spaces
Scamcooooooooo update this to at least 250
>It would be better if the prizes were some decent idols too rather than Yuko for 10k/15k points and that literally who for top 100k.
Contrary to what /@/ believes, Yuko and Yukari are reasonably popular.
Just because you don't know or like them, doesn't mean that they aren't popular.
There's only one way to pull a CG out of obscurity, and that's exposure. It's going to happen more, so you might as well get used to it.
Would you prefer card amount then to know which Idols Doufu and Scamco love the best?
Tottori must not be that large a city, because Kyoko seems like
JUST A SMALL TOWN GIRL
It's been since 2011 since her name was last on anything officially new from iM@S. Her artstyle is obviously what's used in CG now, but I don't know who the current CG artist is.
Hopefully it'll be posted before this threads ends.
>Shiki that low
How can nips have this shit taste?
Drinking was a mistake.
It`s nice to see the newspost back.
Mirai is just mentally troubled.
I'd let Syuko penetrate me.
No, Shiki was from an early 2014 release.
It's been about a year and 2 months since CG last added a new idol with Tsukasa Kiryu. When you consider that they added 9 new idols throughout 2014 and none for 2015, it makes me wonder if they're finally done with that.
More Idol Heroes fucking when?
The Mako, she won the event.
http://www.project-imas.com/wiki/THE_IDOLM@STER_GREAT_PARTY_Go_to_the_NEXT_STAGE!!_@_TOKYO%2B Today in history.
>1st Live still no rips
Buy the DVD is only way, i guess.
>More people voting for Mirai/Shizu than Shiho/Kana
Why is Teeange Girl x Middle-Aged Man so cute?
Welcome back and stop dying, faggot
I thought it was just the same anon spouting the good old 'literally who' meme.
I can only hope they stop adding new ones for now. I'm still upset that CEO didn't manage to pull of an Anya during election.
I don't think TakeP is supposed to be middle-aged
Idolmaster 3 should have a prequel expansion.
I`ve always liked story DLC and there is so much that they could do.
In the canon of this artist, Dooky's red brain problems are too severe for her to even consider that she might be P-sexual.
Oh, that one was already TL'd and TS'd.
She can`t wear them all the time.
Is there some sort of peak Nippon hour where the servers are heavily taxed? Same time of day I can't get past title screen but other games would load fine so it doesn't seem to be my connection.
I want to track down all the assholes who sent death threats to Hase and rip out their tongues.
They'll be kept alive. Then maybe I'll apply some special Chinese techniques. For example, making them stay in a stress position while I place several heavy encyclopedias on top of their legs until they are crushed beneath the weight.
Post idols and songs you would like them to cover.
But it doesn't really make sense to me, what is it listing?
The only thing those crossed out girls have in common (other than being Cool) is that they got new cards recently, but then again so did plenty of other girls there. In fact, about half of them.
Shiho and Shizuka, but they`re like that in public too.
My frappuccino better be the right temperature next time~
For Love Laika
I don't get it either. It was a mistake to give her a CD, but she did decently that year so it made sense at the time.
There are idols that never placed in the top 50 that got CDs that people never bitch about at all.
Finally the curse is broken. I'm almost disappointed, i was expecting my 29th rare.
I bet that you can do it again, anon.
Miya still looks pretty good genderbended.
Japan celebrate bonfire night too?
An artist set a vote on twitter, his next art piece would presumably be the one with the most votes.
I just started a few weeks ago as a f2p player and got this
How is this roll?
Also, i have a good time dreamimg of Makoto during earlier nap.
Chapter 1 of SideM manga is out.
I forgive you Chihiro, for all the rage that you have caused me over this gacha.
Schools are pretty strange in the idolmaster world.
Looks like my last Nendo came in just in time for Mio Honda Time.
Shuuko gets her own sign?
>How would the TP Pringles taste like?
You need to pay more
I'd pay scamco for duet CMs
Most of the idols are pretty dependent on one or two aspects of their persona. This goes for CG and 765.
I think Yuko's gimmick being so damn stupid is the key factor in getting people to resent her though.
Pyon loev Disney. Does she go there every week or something?
Her sister looks pretty cool, too.
The VAs go there all the time, it must be nice.
Her sister looks super cute.
Nothing can stop the wub, it`s even spreading to other idols.
Still applies to most of them. What do you do with Airi? You basically start them off timid as fuck and have them grow really slowly or you run into a roadblock with stuff like this.
I like how much Nishigori still enjoys idolmaster, I`d like to see him work on it again.
Well, we got this scene in the end which has even less frames than "CONGRATULATIONS"
>It's always been like this
Clearly, you people need to get your eyes checked.
They practically redrew everything. Hell, they even touched up the choreography. Minami just kind of pops in from the left in the TV version. But in the BDs, Minami comes in from the right with a spinning motion before settling into position.
And these screencaps alone aren't enough to do justice in showing how much smoother the animation flows.
I'm not saying they went bankrupt literally, but it damn well feels like they overspent most everywhere else throughout the anime and left themselves in the negative red for the end.
> They forgot her cat-smile in her 4koma debut
> She looks completely different
No, all four distinct lines of my vision are fine. Maybe the original TV animation wasn't as smooth compared to the BD version, for obvious reasons, but redrawing what was originally fine on it's own standing doesn't discount what it was before. The majority of the live scenes even in the original TV animation were impressive, and the efforts are completely juxtaposed against the final episode's entire episode live where it was seemingly half-assed, having legitimately dynamic animation for one scene and then fucking stills mixed right in the middle for no reason. It's about how much effort they put into the animation, and when.
Makes me curious what they can do to "fix" the final episode in the BD release.
Time to remove mio from the team
This is the part where I shake my fists to the heavens and yell A-ONEEEEEEEE right?
I know that SS is already quite impressive with what it can do using Toaster hardware, but one of my biggest laments with SS is that all of the choreography is grounded to the spot.
>redrawing what was originally fine on it's own
Look at the 5th, 6th, 10th, 13th images on the left column. Can you seriously say that those are "fine on it's own"?
Not to mention the proportions and sizes of the costume are inconsistent in the TV version. The necklace magically changes appearance per frame. Hell, the golden strings on the LL costume outright disappear towards the end.
Each idol has a particular circle of movement yes, so they aren't 100% glued to the spot. But they never go outside their circle or mix up position. So dynamic group choreography can't be a thing in SS.
It probably could be a thing but it would take some reworking.
Probably Bamco taking into account hardware limitations. SS can still run on a decent phone a few years old.
Are you really asking that? One of the games main draws is the 3d animation. Upping the hardware requirement to use 3d would cut out a significant portion of their user base. SS is designed to draw in casuals, they won't just go out and buy a new device specifically to play the game.
Anon who made that picture here.
Yes, there are more than 17 frames. But I don't think I'm autistic enough to screencap every milisecond frame of the BD and TV of this scene. But I can assure you, for at least this scene in particular, all the off-model frames are fixed.
Don't believe me? Run the BD episode in whatever player you use and use it's frame by frame function. Compare the frames there to the TV version and see the massive difference.
I'm not usually picky about continuity errors. Let's say that Character A is wearing Red gloves in one scene, but then 5 minutes later, in a different scene, he is now wearing Blue gloves. I can forgive shit like that. Those are different scenes after all.
But for LL's case, where clothing and accessory magically morphs and disappears IN THE EXACT SAME SCENE only seconds away from each other, then we have a problem here.
There are literally 60+ unique 3D models in SS. And they're all programmed to do the choreography of the 20+ songs in whatever position they are in the formation.
That probably already takes quite a bit of hardware power and app memory. Adding dynamic movement will probably make devices and app programming go commit explosive sudoku.
The SSRs at least.
And yes, they probably use some sort of slider function to adjust the body proportions of the rest of idols. But they're still different models. And they have different heads with varying hair physics. So each individual idol is still "unique".
Why is Reika allowed a boyfriend?
No, haven't you played the game?
Have you never played 3D mode before?
Their hair sways and bounces around in accordance with the choreography. Of course, the idols with really long hair or funky hairstyles sometimes get the weird clipping for the crazier choreography. But it's nothing too jarring.
I'm not even focused on one particular <2min scene throughout a 25-episode run, nor am I so autistic to take one anecdotal example and apply it everywhere else. I'm primarily talking about how the majority (not all, but a majority) of live scenes throughout the original TV animation run are fine (not perfect examples of animation, but fine and enjoyably tolerable) while still acknowledging the fact that the BD make very obvious fixes for obvious reasons. Even if I were to say "That TV version Love Laika scene is utter garbage", there are plenty of other scenes that aren't. Even the dubiously choppy animation scenes make a better effort than half-dynamic animation/half-stills scenes.
>unmoving hunks of plastic on their heads
Anon, what. Do you even play this game?
Woah. That was weird.
Yeah, they do vary in height.
Basically, there are several main types of bodies, and a head for each girl. And different textures.
So many possible combinations.
Shiki is perfect and she deserved an anime appearance or cameo.
The players who have her SSR haven't recorded anything yet.
If you provide me with a SSR Minami, I'll post a webm with her.
Who are good auxiliary members of an extended Pink Check School Quintet? Haven't really touched MV mode yet and I'm thinking of spending some time watching them now.
Naturally, Dooky is Center and Miho and Kyoko are right beside her. But who are good choices for the other two?
No. Rin and Mio aren't viable options.
Unfortunately on an Apple device and I don't have a capture card.
Please. I'll throw all the shekels to get her.
The only right answers for putting NG into alternate units:
TP + LL (alt. Ranko)
PCS + Chieri + Yukari (alt. Miho)
PP + Airi + Yuko (alt. Mika?)
But Miho is already in Pink Check School.
Cute only please. But I think I'll take >>121266237's advice and put in Kanako and Chieri. So that there are overlaps with Pinky Cute.
On another question, I'm also building a Mellow Yellow team. But who is the de facto leader of this Trio again? Who gets to be center? Yuka, Yukari or Noriko?
Also, who would be good auxiliary members for them? I'd put in the other two Yellow Lily girls, but they're kind of non-existent in SS.
