/v/ here
This game is selling faster and better than most other niche Japanese games on Steam, and its not even translated into English.
Someone explain this to me. I'm not knowledgeable about danmaku games or Touhou in particular, but don't danmaku games typically sell pretty poorly compared to most other kinds of titles? Like if you look up something like Caladrius Blaze or even Dodonpachi Resurrection on Steam the amount of attention they get is nowhere near this. What makes Touhou so special?

>> No.17911451 [DELETED] 

It's always like that around comiket, but they haven't fucked off yet. Probably because /a/ and /v/ are so shit, they don't want to use them anymore, but don't realize they themselves are the reason those boards are such shit.

If I had to guess, I'd say Touhou is more popular than people make it to be. For one, both the McDonalds shitpost and Bad Apple have around 10 million views. Several other videos have millions of views, too. Basically, it had a good chunk of exposure.
People KNOW about it, that's what matters.

The games are still fun, but Touhou owes more success to its character designs and music. These also inspire lots of fanworks, which in turn get more people into the series, who create more fanworks, etc.

>> No.17911522

It also owes to its setting, Gensokyo, and the world that's built around it.
It's all based in folklore, history and mythology, so it can connect with a lot of people, it also gives it lots of potential for stories.

That makes sense.
I guess as long as its a recognizable name its going to do a lot better than it otherwise would. I'm pretty sure everyone's at least seen Bad Apple at this point. Plus as the others pointed out, the history and fanworks also helps I'm sure. I'm happy for Zun, although one of my friends is going to be sad that Cave shooters aren't getting as much exposure.

I would have been more worried about fangames being released on playstation, xbox and such than an official game being released-- it is Touhou just as Touhou is, no secondary interpretations.
The kinds of shitters that some people are worried about in these threads will be attracted by the more easily accessible games, such as the fighters and secondary doujin games, or just other secondary doujinshi in general.

The majority of people don't care about the autismal differences between buying digitally and buying physically. All they care about is the video game itself, which is why digital buying options have been so massively successful in the past decade or so, even on consoles. So I doubt that has to do with it.
$15 is the price of a nice meal, and this game gives me a lot more value than that single hypothetical meal.
I also don't know what "higher quality standards" you have in your head, but I doubt they line up with the appeal of the series for so many people.

>nothing will change

- Touhou comes to steam, is massively successful thanks to the ironic weeb needing it in his videogame facebook library to validate himself
- Other doujin developers take note of this, open up to the west via steam, further strengthening valve's position and further justifying their scummy business practices
- Other doujin games are not as successful
- Doujin creators ask themselves why
- Doujin creators increasingly pander to the west
- Japanese distribution platforms wane in popularity outside of porn games (eventually this niche is targeted as well)
- Platforms like steam take note of events such as comiket and directly compete with it by having choice developers release their games earlier on steam
- Such events stop being the main line of release of videogames
- The niche moves further and further into digital; the same arguments that were used years ago to convince westerners are now used in asia (namely, "digital means less production costs, means cheaper games")
- Physical events lose more and more notoriety and influence in the scene
- Doujin games lose their identity. Rigged western indie contests become the place to be
- Open road for western indie devs to take over the japanese market and further influence it
- The deep interconnection between doujin and mainstream content production means another avenue for western influence in japanese content creation is wide open

By 2030, anime, manga, doujin (now "インディー"), and most other otaku media niches are fully globalized. Politization of the medium soon follows, with western censorship standards close by.

Will never happen because the people going to these events enjoy physical releases of games. As for digital, a significant portion of people getting these games digitally were likely pirating to begin with, so at worst instead of pirating digital they'll be buying digital.

Sure they don't, that's why Buzzfeed japan makes it to the global trends every time they start a hashtag. That's why huffington post's japanese readerbase is growing. That's why has-beens like otaking are begging for the end of animation committees and welcoming overseas investment. That's why anime like Chiyo-chan no Tsuugakuro are targeted almost exclusively at westerners. That's why neo yokio's getting 5 star reviews on netflix japan on account of having a cast of stars. That's why they perfected DLC extortion schemes created by the west. That's why both nintendo and sony added fees to their online features. That's why western-sponsored indie conventions like bitsummit aren't getting stronger with each year. That's why more and more doujin games are mentioning in their trailers that they've got some kind of western acclaim, no matter how vestigial it may be. And that's definitely why ZUN and others before him published their games on steam.

Sounds like a culturally airtight bunch of dudes, these people of the japan.

Most of the stuff you mention has to do with the mainstream audience, which is not really the public of Comiket.

I don't know man. You seem to be knowledgeable, but have an outlook too negative. At this point in time the only thing that has happened is that Touhou is in Steam, and it's in there in the rawest form possible. It's like buying the game in dlsite.

Of course there's good reason but his obvious interest in overseas investment is so that he can pull off an Inafune.

It's the repercussions of ZUNs move that matter, not whether or not he decided to add some irrelevant crap to his steam release. It's like saying your shit soup is great because at least there's no flies in it.

>I'm not sure what Buzzfeed and Huffington post have to do with anything either. Most of the stuff you mention has to do with the mainstream audience, which is not really the public of Comiket.

Fair point, if you leave out the fact most fan artists have moved to twitter in detriment of japanese platforms and are increasingly delving in those subjects/media platforms. I really don't want to take the subject further in that direction because I already got my post deleted. I'd argue that comiket is becoming more and more open to mainstream audiences (not necessarily a bad thing) and that the big sight issue might leave some repercussions of its own. It's true that there will always be an audience for certain things and where there's an audience there's creators ready to supply it with content. My prediction might be a bit on the negative side but you can't deny yet another layer of bullshit is beginning to materialize, and actions like ZUN's only reinforce it.

I have nothing against him in particular for taking these decisions and I wish him well. It's not ZUN's fault he's become a leading piece within the scene. Others would have caved in a lot sooner. Just take a look at type moon.

Not true, which is the issue. Most machines running Windows 10 require the vsync patch to run them properly.
I for instance have the issue of EoSD running at about 2000 frames per second without the vsync patch installed.
The vsync patch is a fanmade tool. ZUN can't really rerelease the old games with the knowledge that they don't work on the operating system that most people are using, and just tell customers to go find some fanmade tool that fixes his broken game.

>> No.17914383

Oh so you weren't talking about the source code at all?

Okay cute anon time for coding 101.

When someone writes code say in C or Java or C++ etc... this code needs to be compiled.

So the human readable programing language needs to be converted into something a machine can read so assembly language, object code, or machine code.

You do this via a compiler that coverts a programing language into machine code. This creates a so called executable also called EXE also known as binary. As the term binary implies it a set of instructions the CPU or the whole machine can read.

Now ZUN is not a genius hes an ordinary guy he probably Borland C/C++ to write the early games seeing as he uses Visual Studio today, the games didn't even have an engine.

Zun was not this guy https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RollerCoaster_Tycoon#History He didn't write the whole game in assembly. He was an amateur programmer with an idea and hell of a lot of motivation. He was 19 years old and his programing experience was probably Highschool Programing classes at best.

Todays Touhou is made by using modern software, ZUN uses Visual Studio, C++, Photoshop and Cubase.

But ages ago the old games used totally different software.

See the old touhou games where made for


So to basically without the source code, the higher level language, the PC-98 games currently look something like picture related.

>> No.17914388

If the fan tool were released as an open source thing, it would be possible to bundle it with a steam release. Gog does something similar, though they make their compatibility tools in-house AFAIK.

Still, it's a lot of work, something ZUN personally is probably not going to do.

>> No.17914410

but how do we all play the games regardless?
ZUN never released the source code in the first place, right?
aren't the files we download just uploaded by people who had the disks?

>> No.17914416

If you play the game on windows 10 with the retail EXE, you will run into problems. That is what the last 20 posts has been discussing.

>> No.17914421

Yes, the cd only has the executable
It's like the exe being the building and the source code being the blueprints, you could technically reverse engineer it but it would take too much effort for it to be worth it

>> No.17914441

The source code is ONLY necessary for altering the code inside of the game, and has nothing to do with running the game, especially on the customer end.
The point here is that because the older games have problems with Windows 10, to rerelease it officially ZUN would have to go back in and make major tweaks to the code of each game, which he would need the source code to do. He does not have the source code anymore, so he cannot realistically do that.
This means the older games are almost guaranteed to not see official rereleases ever.

>> No.17914463

What we can do is simulate the environment it was designed to run in. So the PC 98 environment. Thats how we can play it.

Or someone with a great deal of knowledge in machine code can go in and adjust things.

See the games EXE could be calling say a windows95 function that hasn't existed for 20 years.

A skilled person can go in find that problem and adjust it. Takes an incredible amount of time since you're working of a binary this is mostly trial and error and previous experience.

And yes Zun never released the source code, most old games never did and most modern games never will. You won't see the source code for WoW or Ragnarok Online or Diablo 2 or Doom 4 or whatever...

You get the point, source codes are technically trade secrets especially the famous game ones. Not only would releasing a source code lead to tons of copyright infringements and stealing of ideas. It also totally exposes you to cheating and hacking.

See Linux and other open source development projects work because everyone can see the code and everyone can look for vulnerabilities.

Microsoft Office on the other hand is closed source as in Microsoft can only see it. And this is why you get infected by viruses when you open a word file in outlook. Someone exploited an vulnerability that could have been patched had others been given the time to look the code over.

This is why 99% of the Servers use linux and not Microsoft shit or anything else. Servers need 99.999% uptime.

>too much effort for it to be worth it

>> No.17914477

No it's pretty fucking difficult to reverse engineer the source code from the exe alone, it would take weeks of full time work, probably longer

Because for years and years since 2005 people have made mockups of touhou or VNs on steam, in super markets and everywhere. And we all dreamed of the day it would come.

When I was a shitty 16 year old teenager back then I dreamed of a day when I'll be able to watch japanese tv over the internet, buy japanes games and instantly get them, have every anime translated every season and so on...

All my dreams came true. I can watch Japanese TV via FUJITV, I can download all the horrible subs I want, I can buy touhou on steam, I can order so many many figures on so many japanese websites.

And a flight to Japan costs only 500€. 1 Month In Japan with friends is only 2000€.

This is the future I imagined, I dreamed about. And it's delightful.

So? He's still turned down countless opportunities to get involved with a publisher or make Touhou aimed at larger mainstream audiences, he's said he never wants to make a Touhou anime, he lets countless people make for-profit fan works based on his stuff without swinging the banhammer of copyright infringement around, etc etc.
Literally the only reason he released it on Steam is so that it could reach a western audience that he's recently begun realising exists. IIRC it was the announcement video for LoLK or some other relatively recent game that he uploaded to his youtube channel, and about half of the comments section was in english. Before that he had awareness of any sizeable fanbase in the west. As of now, the only way for westerners to get his games is either illegally, or through second-hand reselling sites. Steam gives an easier, more direct way to deliver the game to westerners.

Why the hell would I buy a new shmup when my favorite one has virtually infinite replay value since I score it? This is just a shitty collector's mentality, where your validity as a 'true' shmup fan hinges on how many games you own rather than your achievements obtained by actually playing the games. Funnily enough the the western touhou fandom (the portion that actually plays the games) tends to be better about recognizing this since piracy is so rampant and so nothing is gained by saying you own such and such game.

ZUN has been hanging out getting wasted with his Western fans since forever. The problem is the restrictions imposed by delivery platforms, not the non-existence of Western fans. Steam is much more lax in its rules (Dream Daddy come to mind) and that's why he allow it to carry them.
