I just recently got back into IIDX due to Infinitas and getting a brand new DJ DAO FP7 controller (with Sanwa and 50g Omrons, SO NICE!) and I was wondering if there are any other PNW Infinitas players?

I'm mainly looking to find an active mutual rival!

I used to play a lot of IIDX back during the 9th Style era back when I was in high school and had more free time on my hands. So I've been trying to get back up to my old skill level. Right now I'm a 二段 (2-Dan) but I used to be able to pass Level 8s before I stopped playing.

Also, I live in Portland but next weekend I am taking a trip up to Seattle to spend a day at Round1 Southcenter! I am so freaking excited! Woo!

Oh hey, it's nice to see another BEMANI player in the Portland area. I'm 8-Dan now, though, so I doubt you want to compare scores with me right now (unless you want to). I haven't tried any DJ DAO controllers myself yet, but I do use Konami's official "premium model" controllers, which feel pretty nice the longer I play with them.

I play Infinitas from time to time. I'm at the 5-dan level (6-dan in AC, but I ain't touching the Infinitas course with freakin COLORS in there!), though my timing sucks Tongue. I took a break myself awhile back (some time after EMPRESS came out on the PS2), and haven't managed to recover my skill from back then (I'd passed a few 10s, but the one I've tried that I used to pass, Beyond the Earth, handed me my ass on a silver platter).

Yeah, the DJ DAO FP7 is a very nice controller. I'm very pleased with it. For awhile I had been using my Konamistyle PS2 ASC with a USB adapter. That scratched the itch for awhile, but the adapter introduced too much lag. I looked to buy the Premium Style controller but no one was selling it at the time. So I went with the FP7 and it's been a night and day difference from the PS2 ASc controller.

I wouldn't mind adding either of you at all! 8-Dan is much further up than me, but it will give me something to work towards! Haha.

My Infinitas Code is: C4139-9036-4616 and my DJ name is kind of lame, it's just DJ James. Haha.

And yeah, in High School I was more obsessed with DDR and after school I would always be at Beaverton Wunderland, which was actually quite the Bemani paradise at the time and I'm sad that it's gone. I started there when they had a 4th Mix Plus machine that was eventually upgraded to Extreme. They also had GuitarFreaks and DanceManiax (which was AWESOME). I wish I had known where that Dance Maniax cab had gone, that game was awesome.
