Hi. This is a project about ripping songs from beatmania, beatmania IIDX and pop'n music in BMS and PMS format respectively.

I wanted to do this project due to the difficulty of finding BMS and PMS based on official game songs to play in Stepmania, because the pages that I usually visit do not exist because they were removed by a DMCA.

Because of this, I decided to give myself the task of ripping the songs from those games myself, and then upload them to the community for testing and bug-fixing after extraction. All in order for them to be added in a section of similes belonging to the corresponding games.

Here is a link where I will upload the progress of the songs that I have ripped so far, and it will be updated as I add more songs:

I think one2bms is what you want for IIDX AC data.

It seems I am having trouble converting beatmania IIDX CS songs when using BemaniToBMS:

DJSLACKERS - Bemani to BeMusic Script
Using modified NAudio - http://naudio.codeplex.com/
Timing: 100/5994
Measure Quantize: 0

Processing File: D:\Users\Hipolito Caraballo\Downloads\BMS Tools\bemediaripper222\beatmania IIDX 3rd Style CS\22DUNK\22DUNK [Another7] (10) b321.cs2

Excepción no controlada: System.Exception: INTERNAL ERROR DAMMIT.
en Scharfrichter.Codec.Charts.Chart.CalculateMetricOffsets()
en Scharfrichter.Codec.Charts.BeatmaniaIIDXCSOld.Read(Stream source)
en ConvertHelper.BemaniToBMS.Convert(String[] inArgs, Int64 unitNumerator, Int64 unitDenominator)
en BemaniToBMS.Program.Main(String[] args)

After that, I get a window saying "BemaniToBMS.exe stopped working" and then the program closes. Any solution?

Update 29/06/2020:
-Added a folder containing sub-folders containing BMS songs from beatmania IIDX. It even contains the beatmania IIDX songs 1st style, substream, 2nd style and 3rd style respectively.

For more information. See the first post I recently edited

I've found PNM 9k PMS rips (I don't think they have EVERY level i.e beginner through to ex and 5 button/9 button as I've only tested a few through Stepmania OutFox) so if you want, I can send you a link to my OneDrive if you want to add them to your collection?

Only issue is, I've only got PNM 1 to 6.

I'm waiting for PNM 22 to 24 to download but because I'm in Australia (we have legit the worst internet speed), it may be a while as they are about 1GB each and the site I'm getting them from, I think they have a download speed limit of 50kb per sec through their download client.

Friends. I think I will leave this project on hiatus.

I have run out of free space on my hard drive and it seems that I don't have the money to buy a new hard drive. Until I have enough money to buy a new hard drive, I will not be able to continue with the project.

If someone wants to continue the project for me. Do it, anyway the few songs that I have been able to rip can be modified to your liking, but you have to remember to give me credit because I was the one who ripped those songs.

One last thing to say before leaving this project on hiatus. Fulfill my dream of adding a section of simfiles of beatmania IIDX and pop'n music respectively, similar to what you did with the simfiles of DDR. This is to preserve the songs in BMS and PMS and to be able to modify them to fix certain errors in the charts and update them to add animations, videos, overlays and characters. I say this because it is difficult to find these types of songs because there are pages that end up being eliminated or there are pages that eliminated these songs and put original songs out of fear of Konami as was the case with BMSWorld.

Edit:
Friends. I came to resume this project and I had to tell you.

It turns out that my progress of trying to convert the songs has been erased and doing it all over again would be tedious. So from now on I am going to re-upload the songs but already converted to BMS and PMS that I found from different pages.

And I'm doing it to preserve them so they won't be lost as time goes by, most of the BEMANI games add new songs in each release but remove others and that makes it lose some history.

So please try to help me with this project, if you see that there are songs that are badly ripped or some are missing, let me know.

Edit 2:

Update 04/10/2021;
Re-uploaded the BMS songs of beatmania 1stMIX, 2ndMIX and 3rdMIX.

Edit 3:

04/10/2021;
-Added a folder containing sub-folders containing PMS songs from pop'n music. It even contains the pop'n music 1 songs.

"Just your average lurker."
There's something that I'm curious about:

I downloaded the 1stMIX folder to test them out, when I saw that there were Hyper & Another charts for songs that (as far as I know) don't actually have any.

For example, jam jam reggae (Soflan Beats Mix). Where did you find those remixes/charts? Neutral
The 5-Key era was better.

The remix charts are from the BMSWorld website. They are included in each of the BMS packages downloaded from that site.

Edit:

Update 18/10/2021;
-Added the BMS songs of beatmania 4thMIX, 5thMIX, YebisuMIX and completeMIX and added the PMS songs of pop'n music 2 and 3 and some songs of the CS version of pop'n 1.

Hopefully someone can help me find a pack that includes the BMS songs from beatmania GOTTAMIX and that includes the versions of Hunting for You, Genom Screams and Hell Scaper that are longer than their AC counterparts.

Well it seems that BMSWorld removed that pack and now I need to find out who is the lucky one who was able to download that pack in time before it was removed.

And the same with the PMS songs from the pop'n music CS games. Well the pack that I downloaded from the link sent by Knurek in SCRUFFAZ's thread does not include all the PMS songs from each of the CS games.

And one last thing. Someone help me to find the packs of the BMS songs of beatmania IIDX, because one of the links that TheLordOfCringe sent in his thread where I downloaded those songs, has stopped working and I need to find the lucky one who has those packs, that includes also the BMS songs of substream and the CS versions and that has their respective videos and overlays.

Edit 2:

Update 10/11/2021;
-Added the BMS songs of beatmania GOTTAMIX, completeMIX 2, 5thMIX CS and beatmania III.

I'm still waiting for someone to upload the missing songs from the list of games with missing songs to rip.

Edit 3:

It seems that BMSWorld did not delete the BMS song package from beatmania GOTTAMIX. Instead you had to search for it on your own. I'm still waiting for someone to upload the missing songs.
