Strange Tracklist

A somewhat odd tracklist index can be found in skin.txt. It mentions the skins STRANGERS, You are not here., So that someone may visit you. and tiny piano, in this order.

VS CPU Mode Tracklist

A tracklist index for VS CPU mode can be found in vscpu.lst. Based on this file, it is likely that VS CPU Mode would use the same tracklist as Lumines II and Lumines LIVE! if it were to appear.

Tracklist Index Oddities

The tracklist index for Digdown mode, found in digdown.lst, has an oddity: three unused skins, IDs 914, 915 and 975, are referenced right after ID 820, the last skin normally playable in the mode. They all use a .csv file linked to SQUARE DANCE, and do not have any proper assets in the game's files.

;==== autogenerated 955 ====

;data/skin914/skin914_blk.2db not found

The Sequencer tracklist index, in file sequencer.lst also lists IDs 602 to 604, suggesting the Sequencer would be more like its Lumines II rendition.

Lumines Plus Leftover Text

The entirety of Lumines Plus' text can be found in data\menu, labeled mes_en.bin, mes_fr.bin, mes_ge.bin, mes_it.bin, mes_jp.bin and mes_sp.bin. As Lumines Plus was never released in Japan, mes_jp.bin and mes_en.bin are identical.

Developer Instructions

In certain folders, there are readme.txt files containing developer instructions. "Kode" and "Senba" likely refer to Osamu Kodera and Kenji Senba, who were credited as programmers for Lumines II.
