Unused Graphics

To do:
Find the location/offset of the placeholder character icons.

POP_OPD.BIN hides several unused graphics, as listed below:

At offset 0x455BAC, there is a sheet of genre slots to be displayed in the records and total results screens. One of the slots is for a song with the genre "Crystal", which does not exist in this game. However, a song with such genre - Escapes from your love - would later appear in the PlayStation release of pop'n music 5.

At offset 0x457BCC is another genre slot sheet, with two visibly placeholder slots:

At offsets 0x55EB24 and 0x57C988 are placeholder graphics for Hyper charts for ENAMORADA and Taiyou ga mitsumeteru, labeled "Hyper Yokohama" 1 and 2.

At offset 0x972278 are unfortunately-colored square slots, labeled from 1 to 64.

~ ただ今、イルカ第二次潜行中!
   はたしてイルカは、深海でも生きられるのでしょうか? ~


~ 気付いたら、イルカのスピードが上がってる!?
                                イルカってば速すぎ・・・ ~


~ 報告!イルカのコンボが、24コンボで途切れた模様。
          しかし、潜行が止まる事はなかったそうです・・・ ~


~ イルカの前方に激流が・・・!
                         イルカの正念場と思われます! ~


~ 調査隊の報告によると、第一次潜行は無事に達せられたようです!
                         現時刻をもって、A作戦を終了とします。 ~


~ Q「イルカ隊員、今の心境は?」
                         A「どっきんばくばく!」 ~


~ 誤情報により前線に混乱が発生!
                         「情報分析員K、何をしている!?」 ~


~ 台風大接近であります!
     イルカのいる深海に影響があるか不明ではありますが、何かメンタル的にねぇ・・・。 ~


~ どうやら別働隊のP班は、無事最終関門を越え、
     第三次潜行に移行すると思われる。・・・健闘を祈る・・・。 ~


~ D班はこれより最終関門に突入する模様。
     何事も無く越えられれば、以後、この日記が綴られる事はないであろう・・・。 ~



~ やはり最終戦線だけあり、苦戦を強いられている。
                       覚悟してはいたが、これ程とは・・・! ~

~ ・・・なんとか間に合った模様。
