Akshuls Posted October 19, 2020 Report Share Posted October 19, 2020 (edited) The link contains everything required to get the game running: the base game, the Omnimix and Spicetools. Setting up the base game: 1) Extract the contents from the group of archives named "LDJ-2018091900" to any folder or drive. You will end up with a folder named like the archive: LDJ-2018091900 2) Open the archive containing Spicetools. There will be 2 folders inside. Extract the contents of the folder named "64" (the 64bit version of Spicetools) to the "contents" folder of the game (where the file "bm2dx.dll" is). Run spicecfg.exe to set up the keys. NOTE: in the version of Spicetools I included, the keys for TEST an SERVICE are swapped. Remember this when configuring the game later on. 3) Open the archive named "Prop and Dev files" and exctract its contents (a folder named "prop" and another one named "dev") into the "contents" folder of the game (the same folder from the previous step) NOTE: if you want/need to delete your settings and start over, delete the "dev" folder and extract it again from this archive. 4) Inside the "contents" folder, right click on an empty space while holding shift and select "Open command window here". In the command prompt, type the following command and hit enter: spice64 -ea NOTE: if you use a private server, drop the -ea argument. If you want to run the game in window mode, add the -w argument. 5) When the game starts, you will get a camera error. Press TEST to continue (if you have a webcam and you don't get this error, the game recognized it and will try to use it during gameplay). After this you will get a clock error. Again, press TEST to continue. There will be a monitor check and after a few seconds, you will be brought to the main test menu. 6) Go to "Game Option", select "Definition Type" and choose the option that matches your display (most likely, HD). Select "Save and Exit". Just like changing resolution in Windows, the screen will go black and after a few seconds, a message will ask if you want to keep this setting. Select "Yes". 7) On the main menu again, this time go to "Network Options" and then "Shop Name Setting". Input any character you want, go to "Exit" and then "Save and Exit" 8) Now, in the main menu again, go to "Clock" and simply select "Save and Exit". Finally choose "Game Mode" to start the game. The base game will start normally from now on. You will still get the camera error, but you can skip it like the first time or patch the .dll to stop it from showing up (read until the end for steps on how to do it) Setting up the Omnimix: Extract the contents from the group of archives named "BeatmaniaIIDX 25 Omnimix" inside the "contents" folder (where Spicetools is). You will merge the existing "data" folder with the one from the Omnimix. You will also replace the existing "bm2dx.dll" with the one from the Omnimix. After this, start the game the same way as before. Patching the bm2dx.dll file: You can patch the bm2dx.dll file to modify the regular operation of the game by skipping the camera error, increasing the song selection time and other features. To do it, access the following link, go into Beatmania IIDX 25 and drag and drop the bm2dx.dll file: http://mon.im/bemanipatcher/ If you use the regular .dll (you are not using Omnimix), just select the features you want and then select "Save DLL". If you use the Omnimix .dll, the patcher will show a message asking to select a version since none of the supported ones match. Select "Force Load" on the one that says "30 of 31 patches matched (96.8%)". After this, just select the features you want and then select "Save DLL". This new file will be downloaded into the download folder set up in your browser. Search your file there and replace with the one from the "contents" folder.
