I read the plot for CtC and I'm actually pissed off by such a stupid take on Gensokyo. The story is all sentimental and "shippey" as fuck, and the characters act as if they are only mere shadows of their former shelves. and what the fuck, nearly everyone dies no matter the ending.

Might be a weird thing to bring up, but do you guys remember moments on bosses where the music somewhat regularly coincide with an important moment in the fight?

Oh riiight, I remember that one. Filled me with dread too since I just couldn't deal with Dubs Black Death Butterfly nor Flying Insects' Nest. Chances are I probably still can't.

Yeah, the stages are definitely paced with the music, but I was specifically thinking of bosses. I guess it's not a total hazard either, but given one's shottype choice and the (admittedly often small) variance in damage rate from run to run, these moments feels more like nice coincidences.

I'm remembering too that on Kaguya I tend to get the second spell as the percussions stop.

Apparently, it refers to one of her spellcard in SWR. I liked to imagine it was referencing her Infinite Superspeed Flying Object spellcard from IaMP's story mode instead, because it's a good match in the bullshit department. Unblockable, ungrazeable scree-wide lasers spam forcing me to pull some olympics-tier acrobatics to dodge and try to even get a hit in.

>> No.21074619

yes, "Vsync = 0" in the ini means vpatch's vsync is off. but it's still disabling the game's vsync (the source of input delay in pre-mof games [maybe just eosd and pcb, i'm not sure]), so it's still doing stuff when you launch vpatch.

you might not need vsync at all (depends on your setup) so that's probably why it's off by default. i think it's supposed to be lagless, but it might be a 0-1 frame deal.

>> No.21076457

The basic point of vpatch is to disable vsync. Vsync=0 disables vsync; Vsync=1 uses vpatch's vsync implementation and locks the game fps to the monitor refresh rate.

>> No.21077383

Yeah exactly. A lot of them are so bonkers to dodge there's no real safe window to get a hit -- especially with how IaMP handle story mode spellcards (boss has hyperarmor most of the card and can only be comboed at certain more or less tight moment in the spellcard). Remilia's Bad Lady Scramble and Yuyuko's Weeping Higan Cherry of Hakugyokurou for instance. Also hahahahahaha Pandemonium.
Even Youmu's Double Pain, that doesn't have any danmaku, is straight up unfair with her intangible clones spamming fuckhueg shoryukens and long low sweeps.

In the end my best strategy was to abuse player's spellcards, espcially those who gives invulnerability. Woooops, turns out ALL your bars get depleted once the boss' spellcard ends, so you'd better plan their usage.

Use stage practice retard. Do it over and over and improve on your mistakes each time till you have a sold route and then do runs.

To be honest, no. It's kind of a shithole. They genuinely think including a super outdated copy of thcrap in their downloads is a good idea (instead of making a readme telling people how to install it, saving everyone millions of headaches) and every attempt at contacting the staff to fix this just gets ignored, they'd rather fart around doing nothing in their discord server.

The all in one pack on Nyaa comes with vpatch configured for the games it matters for, the original un-renamed Japanese executables and assets, and the static English patches if you're really curious or nostalgic or whatever.

I've mostly played EoSD, and so know that the best, but would another game be better to try to beat/1cc instead?

>the penultimate one is ass though
how can you be ok with constant reading and macrododging for a sustained period but not with basic streaming

vowg/mof on normal is pretty slow but it's still definitely harder than source of rains

This would kind of be a real argument if it weren't for the fact that basic play will pretty much always get you maximum lives for all the games with score-based extends

>> No.21132153

source of rains lasts long enough to trap you in the corner and force you to bomb a couple of times

Took me about eight months to 1cc Normal EoSD with extra lives (so not really)
Then I cleared Extra which took about four months after that
So about a year if you count Extra as my first 1cc

Then 1cc'd PCB on Normal with standard lives in about a week.

Currently trying to 1cc PCB Extra. Slowly but surely getting a little farther in every time, currently dying mostly on Unilateral Contact.

Thanks friend, it got the games up to 60fps now but now everystage i clear comes with a drop in fps. i.e. in PCB stage 1 is at 60, stage 2 goes to like 45, stage 3 is at like 25-30

Came back after taking it easy for a few years, and I'm really dissapointed by Violet Detector. Why did ZUN even bother adding the second half the game? Instead of phoning it in he should have made less stages with actually new attacks. At least LoLK and HSiFS were great, although LoLK's stage 5 would be a lot more fun with more raw dodging and less memoshit.

You know, I had literally never seen any of the characters from UFO to DDC on /jp/ before I played the games. And I still haven't seen any other than byakuren.

>> No.21137500

most of the characters that get posted alot have funny memes or gimmicks associated with them
From those games:
kogasa: umbrella girl
nazarin: mouse girl
zombie girl: zombie girl, can't even remember her name lmao
And that's all I can really remember off the top of my head from those games. ZUN had a really bad case of sameface so 3/4 of the characters are identical faces in dark clothing with less than memorable characters in game. People just forget about them, not to mention many consider some of those games to be the worst touhou games.

>> No.21137516

Compare to LOLK which has Clownpiece and Junko. Clownpiece is a fairy, insane, and has AMERICA memes going for her. Junko is mad as fuck and has a unique design and boss battle. Both of those characters have extremely difficult fights and memorable boss themes so it further serves to imprint those characters via PTSD into the minds of the players.

I sometimes see Doremy posted but almost never see the heron girl or either of the rabbits.

>> No.21138150

If you care about story progression either 1 (HRTP) or 6 (EoSD). If you want something on the easier-side 8 (IN) is a common recommendation. Ultimately it doesn't really matter that much, you can play whatever one you're most interested in.

>> No.21138353

I dont really know anything about any of them only that it looks like a fun bullet hell

>> No.21138378

then play 6 because HRTP is god awful, not a bullet hell, and what little story it has is noncanon.

The bulk of the story to touhou is in official print works (books and manga). Not sure where to get them or what order to read them in, or even really what they are, though. I just know there are several books.
