Answer

Macca is a recurring currency across mainline Megami Tensei games. In EraMegaten, it's used in Macca Exchange to upgrade your COMP, buy items or buy software for your COMP. Macca can be gained from workers in your Restaurant/Hotel, selling slaves, Deleting Characters in the Dark way, or through a Yen to Macca exchanger in the Red Light District at night.

Simple. Convince them. Some demons can't talk but can be gotten through scanning them to 10% and summoning them at the Jakyou Manor. Higher % means less money spent to summon them.

Old Megaten pastebin. May or may not be outdated. Still a bit messy.


Basics[edit]

It is recommended to play as Devil Summoner if you haven't played any SMT/Persona game beforehand. It has a tutorial (available only during the 1st day, accessible with "Search") which explains the basis of battles and COMP.
Before proceeding to the second floor, make sure to TALK to any demon you encounter and recruit it, then summon it to your party with COMP > Summon. Repeat until you have a full party (put your character in the back row, instant gameover if he/she dies).

Progression[edit]

You can progress in eraMegaten by:

Search
Explore dungeons, recruit demons, and defeat bosses.
Enter Colosseum
Compete in the arena to win money, macca, and new characters.
Request Contract
Do quests, may also unlock events and dungeons.
Events
Unlock more stuff.

Do any of these when you're stuck. Time does not elapse during contracts/events (unless prompted).

Training[edit]

Training demons is very important, since it has two benefits:

  • You can transfer MAG to them, which is spent to make them stronger
  • Their abilities will increase, which in turn allows you to do more lewd stuff to them (most abilities also influence work performance and sell value)


Do NOT raise their rejection seal level: it makes training harder. If you really have to, make sure you have enough SURREN orbs to bring it back to zero. You can also toggle MAG transfer/absorption ON/OFF, allowing you to give/take MAG to/from demons during training. MAG is more suited for demons, since they have more power-up options. A demon can also work and earn Macca when his/her Sale Conditions are met.

Don't forget to store your unused demons at Party Setup > Store demon. They can be used as fusion fodder, anyway.


The two currencies are:

Yen

  • Used to buy equipment, training tools/drugs, create demons at Jakyou Manor, build facilities, pay the organization
  • Acquired by defeating dungeon bosses, fighting at colosseum, completing contracts, exchange for Macca

Macca

  • Used at Macca Exchange to buy COMP software and expand your COMP slots, craft random rare items with Item Synthesis
  • Acquired by selling demons, put your demons to work, fighting at colosseum


If you need a good grinding spot, unlock the Tartarus by completing Echo Building or Hatsudai Shelter, or level up your protag to 10. It has low and high level enemies as well, and you can take the elevator every 5 floors. It's accessible only at nighttime though. Alternatively, the colosseum dungeon has a high encounter rate and enemies always appear in groups of 10.


The main objective is to get any ending before day 50. You can still keep playing, but some route/endings are locked out after. You can start a NG+ anytime from day 51, although it is recommended to get at least one ending first, since you gain more NG+ bonuses based on how many non-bad endings you got (Restaurant/Brothel endings are recommended, since you can get those anytime and have no additional requirements, just keep working).


Other commands[edit]

Enchance demon:

  • Increase their stats
  • Learn new skills from acquired skill cards
  • Power up their skills, giving them better range or more damage
  • Increase range of normal attack (up to 1 line/all enemies) and its attribute (SLASH/GUN/STRIKE/SKILL)
  • Buff an elemental weakness (only one at a time)
  • Increase stamina/energy for longer training sessions


Payment

  • Pay money to the organization. Unlocks more stuff in the Junk Shop, sometimes even dungeons.
  • To get any good end, you need to donate at least 1.000.000 yen. It's way easier than it looks.


Junk Shop

  • Buy weapons, armors, accessories and combat/healing items.


Jakyou Manor

  • Fuse demons: get a new type of demon, with some skills (or even abilities) inherited
  • In-depth fusion guide: https://pastebin.com/6Vu8nfhA
  • Skill card creation: Extract a skill from a demon. You get a skill card in return, that can be used on any demon to make him learn that skill (if element compatibilty to said skill is low, more MAG is needed for acquisition/upgrade)
  • Demon Compendium: Summon any kind of analyzed demon by spending yen, cost is reduced to ~10% if fully analyzed


Labor/Sale/Manage

  • Sell demons for macca
  • Let your demons sing at concerts (available during night only)
  • Let your demons work at restaurant/brothel
  • Build your own foodcart/hotel to increase work payoff (can be upgraded later to restaurant/brothel)


Parameters[edit]

ST - Physical damage
IN - Magic damage
MA - Affects MP and magic
EN - Affects HP and defense
AG - Speed, evasion/accuracy and gun damage
LU - Drop rate and critical hit rate

  • Note: firearms damage (GUN attack, BULLETS, DOUBLE・TAP) is based on IN/AG, while GUN skills (Sharpnel, 99 Needles, and so on) are based on ST.
MAG
Earned by defeating demons. Used to Enhance Demons in various ways.Also needed to keep your demons alive, since they consume it during exploration and they'll start losing HP/MP for every step taken when their MAG is 0. By default, this won't happen since the protag spends his own MAG to upkeep the demons.
Loyalty
Earned by winning battles/recruiting demons, or more slowly by training. Can be spent to inherit sexual abilities after fusion, or to make skill cards from demons without sacrificing them.
