**THIS IS A RAW DUMP! IT REQUIRES PATCHING OR A LOADER TO OPERATE ON A HOME PC! IT MAY NOT WORK WITH AMD GPU! THIS IS NOT THE GAME STILL COMMERCIALLY AVAILABLE IN ARCADES! PLEASE SEE THE README FILE!**

I'm seeding this arcade PC dump because it's just been released into the wild and Google hasn't indexed it yet. This does not work out of the box; it's a "raw" dump of a Windows-based coin-op game. This is "Hatsune Miku: Project Diva Arcade" ("PDA"), the older arcade game that runs on SEGA Ringedge and has four main buttons, *not* "Hatsune Miku: Project Diva Arcade Future Tone" ("AFT"), the SEGA Nu game. As of early 2019, there is no public dump of AFT.
Two Discord servers have solutions to (possibly) get the game running. Neither of them can provide you with this dump, neither are associated with me or the person who made the dump, and neither want to get hosed by SEGA. The first is a [Project Diva modding community](https://discord.gg/cvBVGDZ) that works on mods for the whole range of Project Diva games. Try looking at all the pinned messages in their channels for the system requirements and tools to start and control the game. The tools are still WIP. The biggest challenge is that the game requires a *dedicated NVIDIA GPU.*
The other possibility is the arcade PC loader, [Teknoparrot](https://discord.gg/vHgwnYj). As of this writing, you have to make a Patreon donation of at least USD 5 and maintain it every month to play PDA. There are free and open solutions elsewhere, but hey, it's your money. Again, these guys are all doing good work, but they wash their hands of the actual dump.
As I said, work continues on patches and loaders. At the time I write this, the game is playable but not all functions work. Most of the GUI and song titles are in Japanese, though translators are already making a lot of headway. DIVA.NET doesn't function, IC cards/emulators are not supported, and you can't log in or save high scores. If you want it, go code it. Please feel free to take this raw dump and patch in functionality, songs, translations, boobies, whatever, and share the love.
**Thanks and enjoy!**
