This is where the game asks if you want to have Voices for the character on(pink) or off(blue). The entire game story is fully voiced with many great Japanese voice actors- so it's pretty download heavy. You can change this anytime.
If you choose to have them off (please reconsider), you will still be able to hear the music in the game.
The game will ask for your character name, since we play as Tsumugi Takanashi in the game the default name is Tsumugi (紡).
By default, your Character Name and Player Name are the same, but you can change it anytime.
Once you pick your name, press the Pink button!
After all the data have been downloaded, the game will proceed to the Chapter 1 of the Main Story. You won't be able to do anything on your own until you finish the chapter.
If you don't want to read the story (please reconsider), you can press the three(3) line button in the corner and press End. It will end the segment immediately.
As you won't be able to do anything on your own until you finish the chapter, it will move you onto the next segment of the story. Tap the segment title twice to start it.
After Segment 4's completion, the game will now take you to the tutorial section of the rhythm game.
You will first have to set your Tapping Calibration. The default is 0.00. The Blue Button will enter testing mode, and the Pink Button will take you off this screen. It will ask if you want to confirm your choice, blue button will cancel the process and the pink button will continue to take you off the screen.
This segment was taken from the Live portion of the Master Guide. You're not going to see what's above during the Tutorial.
You will be able to test out your rhythm playing skills in i7 with a brief play session of MONSTER GENERATiON. Below is a guide on how to play the rhythm game.
There are four places where the notes come from and in those four places is a note hit box. Tap the note hit box when the note reaches the center. "What happens if you don't hit it in the center" We're getting to that.
There are four type of notes in IDOLiSH7's rhythm game. Silver, Red, Green, and Blue. If notes are connected by a line, then you have to do that action of that note at the same time on them.
Silver Notes are your regular Tapping Notes- you just tap them when they reach the center.
Red Notes are Flick Notes. Flick them in any direction you prefer when they reach the center. These are the bane of i7 players existence.
Green Notes are Hold Notes. Press them when the first ball reaches the center and let go when the second ball reaches the center.
Blue Notes are Sliding Notes. Press when the first ball reaches the center and slide in the direction of the light, when the second ball reaches the center let go.
Tapping grade. Your given a grade on how great you are at tapping notes in the center of the hit box.
The grade in IDOLiSH7's rhythm game are as follow from Well to Not Well. PERFECT, GOOD, BAD, and MISS.
If you're able to make consecutive PERFECT and GOOD grade on your notes, you'll earn a COMBO.
The higher your combo count is, the better. There's a chance you'll enter FEVER MODE. Which will change how the screen looks- from not colorful, to colorful rainbow mode, to MV Mode. These modes will increase the Score of the notes you hit.
You will still get the nice score up even if you have MVs off.
If you combo every note with a GOOD or better, you'll get a Full Combo.
If you combo every note with only PERFECTS, you'll get a Perfect Combo.
The thing at the bottom, the C-B-A-S-SS thing, is your score grade.
After that's all done, you will be given the results on how you did!
After the rhythm game tutorial is over, you will be sent back to progressing through Chapter 1 of the Main Story until you finish it. This time, the game will give you a guide on how to access chapters.
After that you will Rank up to Rank 2 and more things will unlock!
And after that!! You will now be given the choice of a starter card among the seven members of IDOLiSH7.
Once you tap a member, you will be given two buttons. One where you can view the card's information and the other is the confirm button. All of these cards are pretty weak at their highest rarity (SSR) if we want to talk about them in terms of stats.
