>> No.26126586

This is when ZUN let the scoring system go berserk, fucking up the UI, because he's shit at shmups. It still has an interesting gimmick and pretty danmaku at least.

This is when ZUN got really lazy and made a bland game with a shitty, boring gimmick. He also failed to test every shottype or the new replay system properly.

This is the same as above, but amplified to fuck. ZUN probably only playtested the game with ReimuA, which is also glitchy as fuck, and instead of balancing the shottypes or danmaku properly, he said "fuck it, just give the player 20 extends so they can bomb all the dumb shit."

Bad damage output, fatbox, Benben, and replay desync? ZUN really went out for MarisaA in DDC. Honestly I'd go as far as saying she's the worst shottype in all of Touhou, even worse than Sakuya solo, Alice solo, MoF MarisaA, or DDC SakuyaB.

Should I play Puppet Dance Performance before playing Shard of Dreams? Seems like SoD is just a straight upgraded rerelease. Any reason not to skip the original?

>> No.26165047

It highly depends on the shot you're using. Benben is awful if you don't end her attacks a few seconds in, and ReimuA and SakuyaA can make quick work of her. With MarisaA, she won't kill anything quickly even with shotgunning, so all the nons end up being heavy RNG micro crap, the first spell can almost wall you sometimes because it gives more opportunities for stray bullets to block your path, the second spell makes you do risky speedkill strats to avoid getting walled, and Double Score sucks for everything. Also, Yatsuhashi is a worse midboss than Benben.

From my experience, Benben's midboss is way easier, and even if you opted to use SakuyaB, Yatsuhashi's boss nons are mostly manageable, the first spell can be trivialized with anything, and Echo Chamber is semi-routable depending on her movement. Requiem will always be shitty with everything, but whether it's worse than Benben's third non with MarisaA is debatable imo.

You get a free boss summon when you hit 100k, 300k and 500k spell score. This also removes the enemy boss from your screen.
Spell score is reset when nothing is destroyed on your side of the screen for a few seconds (See the bar under your spell score). It's very important to be able to reset your spell score, since it lets you send over the boss to your opponent. Early game, I'd recommend resetting at 100k points, and just keep going from 0 to 100k over and over. As the game gets more intense, it'll get quicker to build up spell score, and you can go all the way to 500k. As an advanced strategy, try to hit the spell score thresholds just after your opponent, so that the boss stays on their side all the time.
For scoring, it can be better to not reset, since you get bonuses for being at max spell score, (999k), but this means that you can't get rid of bosses easily. Good luck!

Can anyone explain to me how how the cherry system works in PCB? The wikia says you get a shield after reaching a certain amount of points, then I noticed you can clear the whole screen by getting hit during this supernatural border period, is there a downside to doing that? Do you get more points by not getting hit?

>> No.26259369

Yeah, you get more points for finishing them, but IIRC you get them more often by cancelling them right before they end

>> No.26260109

You get a shield after getting 50,000 cherry points
You get cherry points by collecting cherry items (closer to the top of the screen the better), hitting and grazing (unfocused gain more than focused). Breaking borders turn all bullets into cherry items and autocollect them. Capturing spell cards also increase the gain from shooting/grazing.
Letting them run out normally gives you bonus points

>> No.26260116

You can cancel them anytime by hitting the bomb key. If you finish them, you do get more points, but if you're playing for survival, it's better to cancel them when they're about to end. This way, you get some cherry points back. The amount you get depends on how many bullets there are at the screen at the moment. The more you clear, the more points you'll get.

There could be fundamental problems with your movement or what you should be looking at. Maybe watch a Normal 1cc and look at what they're doing differently?

>> No.26261502

That's probably not true. Try taking a reaction time test - there are plenty available online. Unless you have some sort of disorder, that's not the problem. You just need to practice looking ahead, reading bullets, and knowing what to do in various situations, so that you can respond appropriately instead of panicking.

It means that you didn't let the cherry border run out (either by taking a hit or by pressing 'x').
Seconding what the others said. At your stage, it's probably much more important to consider where you are looking at the screen, and what you are looking for. Raw reaction time is secondary to filtering out the relevant information to react to.
Pic related. I don't think that thinking in terms of these different "reading windows" will improve your dodging, but it's good to get into a mindset of being somewhat aware of where you are looking while you dodge. Don't be ashamed to look up guides online where people describe their approach to dodging certain attacks (looking at raw replays will only tell you what kind of movement people do to dodge, but not how they read the bullets).

Don't let these people lull you into a false sense of security. The later games are pretty different from EoSD, in the sense that the spell cards become more complicated. If you want PCB to feel easier than EoSD, I'd suggest looking up how other people do the stage 4, 5 and 6 bosses, because without a good strategy, PCB won't feel easier than EoSD.

Most people will tell you to start from Touhou 6 Embodiment of Scarlet Devil (EoSD) and work up from there. Probably skipping the decimal games: the decimal shooting games ("photogames") are pretty difficulty and can be saved for later, while the fighting games are fighting games.
Why 6 and not 1? Touhou 1-5 run on PC98 and need an emulator, and the series also did a soft reboot when transitioning to Windows, so much of the earlier games aren't canon. Not that story matters much. The first three games are also a bit "special".
Why start with 6 if story doesn't matter?
It's just a good game with no difficult mechanics and straightforward dodging, so it's suitable for beginners.

Some people swear by controllers, but most people use keyboards. It probably doesn't matter much. You'll have to use some external software to rebind the buttons on your controller to keyboard presses.

>> No.26295490

nah. gameplay-wise they're independent, and story-wise they're mostly independent with some recurring characters (it's usually just banter in the games themselves; omakes and print works have the lore). if you're looking for entry points, 6-8 are good, 6 being the first windows game and sort of a soft reboot for characters and such. but really you'll have to drop a few credits to know which games appeal to you: with unique mechanics and patterns, they end up playing very differently from each other, and everyone has their own favorites. only other thing is that you'll probably need vpatch, since the older games tend to have input delay on modern oses.

i haven't used the xbone controller, but generally the best input device is the one you're the most familiar with, as long as it's decent quality. there are pros and cons to each, but keyboard, dpad, and arcade stick are all viable, and all are used by different high-level shmup players.

>> No.26296572

I think starting with LLS is not a bad idea either
The game is arguably the easiest in the series so it works well for easing new people into the games.
It's not THE first touhou game but it's the first one to have basically all the hallmarks of windows touhou (reimu/marisa shots, shift focus, complex scoring system, 6 stages + bosses)
Plus you really get to see ZUN's style evolve well, which is something I regret missing out on since I just started all over the place.
But yeah if you don't like the dated look EoSD is a great place to start as well

It's only very slightly to your right, as in close enough to hit you if you don't move. Otherwise you could just stay under her the whole time.
Listen to the sound of her firing her wheels, make a mental note of where you are at that time, and remember to not be there when the wheels arrive (dodging left is easier, because it's aimed to your right). It's a consistent rhythm, so if you can get into a pattern of staying under her->dodge wheel->go back under her->dodge wheel and repeat, you can end it pretty quickly.

ReimuB is an improvement because homing shots are way better suited for stages than forward shots are and she has a small hitbox. Her bomb isn’t that much worse and it doesn’t hinder your movement. ReimuB is also better suited for Yatsuhashi than MarisaA is for Benben, so you’ll probably bomb less often in stage 4.

Damage-wise, MarisaA will be slightly better thanks to her shotgun, but her flamethrower can’t reach the top of the screen if you’re at the very bottom.

I played it a while ago but the only thing I can remember is that the weird combined player sprite made it hard to "predict" where the hitbox was without looking at it, and the game ended up feeling more difficult than it actually was because of that.

>> No.26450687

It's just one boss fight; you should just download and play it.
It was OK for a game jam game: it's one of the better shmups made during those 2 weeks, probably because it was made in danmakufu so the creators could focus on the actual boss attacks rather than developing an engine.
I played it on normal, and I'd guess the difficulty was about on par for a harder stage 4 boss? You'll have no problems clearing it, but some spells may be difficult to cap.

There's your problem. Most secondaries don't actually play Touhou. Seriously though, EoSD plays more like the PC98 games but the biggest thing is it doesn't look like a PC98 game. China's patterns, for instance, don't really look like PC98 patterns, esp with the increased color limitations. Remilla's patterns also feel much more different aside from like maybe Mountain of a Thousand Needles. Sakuya has space moving gimmicks and Pachouli's patterns are really all over the place.

I strongly disagree. The music is great, the girls are very cute and there's lots of fun in them.
For example, I'm not really a fan of PoFV, but I really enjoy playing PoDD. The simplicity and smaller area make it more enjoyable to me and one of my favourite extras is the LLS one; difficult and fun.

They're also interesting, as a part of Touhou's history. You get to experience ZUN's experiments with the series in the first 3 games and how they paved the way for the modern games (SoEW for example is very different from not only the Windows ones, obviously, but even from LLS and MS).

Try to play in a way that minimizes the ratio of frustration to triumph.
Use the practice patch. When you fail something you think you should have managed, grind it a bit in practice. This will turn failure into success, as you improve your weak points.
When you encounter something you don't think you should be able to manage, bomb it. This way, you get much further, and you also don't die with bombs in stock - both of these minimize frustration.
Ideally, you should view improving in danmaku as a worthy goal in itself, and not just something to be done with so you can get back to drawing. It's also good to remember that everyone at all skill levels mess up a ton; making mistakes is part of the process.

LoLK is my second favorite in the series. It sort of continues IN/Bougetsushou's story, which I liked since I'm a big fan of IN. The pointdevice gimmick works quite well and lends itself to some fun patterns while mostly being forgiving, sans some lategame examples, a bit of scarcity with checkpoints, and rather long respawn times. Legacy mode is largely devoid of gimmicks and is a neat challenge that makes bombs actually useful. The soundtrack is also amazing.

HSiFS and WBaWC are just okay, to me. HSiFS goes back to the standard points resource system from older games, but also gives you a sub-bomb called a season release. WBaWC's resource system is essentially a fusion of TD spirits and UFO's, well, UFOs. I like, but don't love, the soundtracks, and most of the patterns are fine but I'm not a fan of the gimmicks, especially WBaWC's.

Given you like TD, I think you'd enjoy WBaWC, especially if you also like UFO. I'd say HSiFS is most similar to PCB and maybe MoF in the later stages, although harder and less lenient with resources than both. That said, certain character/option combos (particularly Aya Fall) can make farming lives VERY easy.

I'm not sure it matters that much. I got Cherry Reds (pic related) because I read somewhere that those would be "the best" for shmups, but I'm not a big fan even after half a year.
The Cherry Reds are so sensitive that I have to lightly tap the key to do fine adjustments, but it's very common that I hold the key for just a little too long, or that I tap too lightly so that it doesn't register at all. I can't seem to get consistent.
I can imagine Cherry Reds being good for the bomb button, where you just want to press as soon as possible after making the decision to bomb - and that this is why they are considered the "gaming" switch - but for precision movement, they are not really working for me.
My feelings are that a short activation distance is not that relevant for Touhou, since you are not moving your fingers to press new keys and thus you can always hold your finger slightly above the point of activation. I'd guess this makes the type of switch you use largely irrelevant, as long as you are used to it.
It may also be that I'm just a shitter who hasn't been able to learned to use a good mechanical keyboard after using normal keyboards for years.

>I'd guess this makes the type of switch you use largely irrelevant, as long as you are used to it
That's what others have said before, and I believe it. Unless you're at such a high level that you feel your keyboard specifically is holding you back, it's probably not an issue.

Man, I haven't played Touhou in a while. Got scared of being unable to get past normal difficulty.
Something I never bothered to check, though. Do the projectiles from spells that fan out into patterns track you? I often panicked like an idiot because I thought they seemed more erratic than they look on other people's gameplays.

IIRC, ZUN has a bit of a hangup about doing things himself, and has said that if there were ever to be an official translation, he'd want to do it. Obviously that will never happen, so here we are.
>why would you pay money for a game without language support?
Just stop being an EOP. Language support is the least of the issues anyway; the older games don't even run properly on newer version of Windows without third-party fixes. The best way to play them will always be to pirate, but buying them supports ZUN, which is only fair to do if you play and enjoy his games.

The games and their translations (and not limited to just English) are so trivially obtainable that the only reason to buy the games at all is to show your support.

eosd lunatic strat. spoilers for diy purists.

this is for when meiling is low on the screen, since the standard way becomes a tight squeeze. pick any gap roughly beneath meiling and hold shift and left. it's consistent at any rank, but it only works with reimu and only at about this vertical distance. picked a replay where i started moving too early to show that you'll make it even if you cut it closely. using this strat also means that, with reimu, there's no need to consider stalling at the end of the previous spell to end it when meiling is higher on the screen.

Right now I'm casually jumping from games to games, so far I've beaten 5, 7, 8, 9 and 10 on Normal. I can't get past Orin in SA and Doremy in LoLK. I've also tried random shmups like eXceed, deathsmiles, mushihimesama, crimzon clover and other random CAVE games but the touhou series is more up my alley.

disregard. i'd delete and repost later with revised info but it's too late. i thought i'd tested every possibility, but after messing around a bit more i found an instance where it won't work with reimu - when you pick the first gap in a line and move really late, the third kunai can hit. i think it'll still always work if you pick the second gap (like in the webm), since there'll only be two instead of three kunai on the right side, but i'll need to test more to be sure. it's still promising, but it's not as stated where any gap gives 100% consistency.

sorry about the misinformation.

same hitbox size in eosd, but the speed difference is an issue. you can also hold down at the bottom of the screen, but now marisa is too slow instead of too fast. in that case, if you're a bit late in moving, the second kunai can sometimes hit and the third kunai regularly hits.

i shouldn't have said that it doesn't work with marisa, since you could get consistent with the timing, but there's less leeway on the timing. probably better to just use the standard method, going wide if a larger opening is desired.

the biggest thing that "clicked" for me was probably figuring out how to properly stream.
made many sections that seemed absolutely ridiculous before manageable, like the mass amount of arrow-shooting Haniwa on stage 5.

For me, it's UFO because I love the music, patterns, and characters. I also think the overall plot is max comfy since it's just treasure ship chasing adventures instead of an incident that might be dangerous if left alone. No surprise I also enjoyed WBaWC as well since it has a refined UFO system and great music. I agree LoLK isn't very fun because of how poorly balanced the game is to justify point device mode. I've only cleared LoLK on normal point device mode because I'm a coward and don't think I can 1CC LoLK on normal legacy mode. I can't even get Clownpiece's spellcards down consistently enough to NOT die like 80 times a card.

Probably DDC desu, the first two stages are really easy and I usually don’t have to reset much, Sakuya A is broken but the bombdoesn’t cancel bullets so you still get to play the game, albeit with a large margin for error. The danmaku gets pretty challenging but also simple and intuitive as well. I like the mechanic, pushing myself to grab more resources every run is enjoyable.

You won't get a straight answer for anyone, but here's my take
Excluding touhou 3, which is like PoFV in terms of gameplay and not really comparable
LoLK is extremely difficult patterns wise but yes the game gives you an absurd amount of resources to mitigate the hard stuff and then some. Especially with Reisen and Sanae, where you hardly need to even play the game at all.
UFO is kind of similar territory, however you do have to work harder for those resources so must people consider it generally harder than LoLK although the patterns don't quite get to the same level of craziness.
DDC is also worth mentioning, it is another game that has absurd resource generation but difficult patterns to compensate. With the weaker shottypes, the game becomes easily as hard as LoLK or UFO.
SA is absolutely brutal on the lower difficulties, such as easy mode, normal mode, and hard mode, but somehow it's lunatic mode doesn't really scale up all that high. Still, it's a tough 1cc on lunatic, there are a lot of tricks you can do with the game however if you choose to seek that out.
As sort of a wild card in this argument there's also EoSD, which has some really, really hard stuff, and a rank system to boot. However, it's first three stages are pushovers, and bosses have rather squishy healthbars that get obliterated with bombs.
Here's my scrub opinions on difficulty considering all the following.
For a lunatic 1cc, any shot type goes:
UFO > EoSD > MS > SA > DDC > IN > HSiFS > PCB > LoLK > MoF > WBaWC > TD > LLS
To play perfectly (LNN):
LoLK > EoSD = UFO > other stuff im not good enough to rank

>> No.27366753

Decided to forgo beating LoLK on legacy for now because I've got nothing to prove, and wow, HSiFS is an excellent game. Benign gimmicks, clear ramp-up in difficulty, fun but fair spellcards, superb soundtrack, just really polished overall. Some people probably say it's too easy, but I'm not a stickler for difficulty.
