- Preview the melody on the melody select screen.
- Improved flash cart support.
It requires a Nintendo DS/Lite and a flash cart.
This game allows you to save your progress via DLDI. On first play, the game will create the save file gmo2_sav.sav on your flash cart.
If you find that saving does not work, please try manually patching the game with the appropriate DLDI patch for your flash cart.
Note: If all else fails you can still play the game using the option Continue Without Saving on the initial menu.
Only tested on R4 Revolution. Runs in DeSmuME emulator but does not support saving (see below).
Saving does not work in DeSmuME (as of 2008/03). May work in other emus (No$GBA, IDeaS), but haven't tried.
DS Nicknames that use non-Roman characters (such as Japanese kana) will be displayed incorrectly in Recital mode and Report Card.
No sleep mode.
