beatmania IIDX RED Rival Exchange

The recently released *[beatmania IIDX RED](* features a new set of functionality allowing you to load up to five saves from other players into your game as rivals, and giving you in-game comparison between your scores and theirs.

While it’s a great feature, there’s one small shortcoming: there’s no way to go online to exchange saves.

As of late last night, [VJ Army]( has begun supporting upload of PS2 save files for your profile. Any user can upload one save in any of the common save formats (XPO, XPS, MAX, SPS), and the file will be hosted on this server. If you’re a VJ Army member, sign in and then look on the left hand menu for “Upload Rival Data” to find the form. (And remember to set your user ranking in the control panel.)

If you’re not a member of VJ Army – or even if you are – and want to browse the files that have been uploaded, you can do so on the [Find Rival Data]( page.

And if this all confuses you, documentation should be available within the next couple of days.
