it's probably xored using a specific key, without which it's not possible to decode.

the decryption key could be in the exe, but again, the exe's so full of random symbols it's like looking for a needle in a haystack.

i don't even know what to look for, since the key could be something simple like a word, but it could also be a random string of letters and numbers.

and then i dunno what to expect in the archives afterwards. if they're not compressed, just stored i'm guessing i should be able to see filenames of the archived stuff and their headers, and from there it probably shouldn't be too hard if they're common filetypes like png or ogg i guess.

A quick summary of what I did was look in the hex editor for patterns, see picture. There is some variation on the key but for the most part it is intact, you just have to have a larger sample size to weed out the noise. After that its just a matter of simplifying the key because if you take the highlighted section there is a pattern in that. Its 12 bytes like I said earlier. After that you just have to worry about the offset. You know you got the right key when some of the part of the files are readable. Extracting the files takes some more work, but if you know some programming its not that hard to get at.

by the way, for the guy who can open the dats, are there more character portraits in? like, i saw 4 for sakuya and 1 for china in game, so i wonder if there's anymore that just weren't used but were left i the dats.

>>In Winter 2009, [erka:es] had announced that they would not be participating at Winter Comiket 77 due to unfortunate circumstances. With that said, Rosenkreuzstilette ~Freudenstachel~ would not be released until Summer Comiket 78, which would be held around August 14th, 2010. However, on August 8th, 2010, Isemiya announced that due to lack of development on the project, ~Freudenstachel~ would be delayed even further to December 2010, when Winter Comiket 79 would be held.
From two weeks ago or so.

I think most of them are used in the actual demo, but the only ones that were in the .dat file were for Meiling, Sakuya, and Chen. There are at least 4-5 per character with different expressions. Also, there are some more files but they are just the text spoken in the game.

I'm not sure what >>6186848 is smoking, but I personally loved the first one. It was a bit hard, but then again, so was Rondo of Blood. Well, until you unlock Maria at any rate.

Art was excellent, music was okay, controlled better than Rondo of Blood, you could fly, etc etc etc. In fact, my only gripes with the game are identical to gripes I would wage against Rondo of Blood, so I can hardly complain since the game was quite obviously modeled after that (Reimu even has the backflip for gods sake)

In general, don't listen to what Zun!bar has to say. Pretty much never has anything good to say about anything.

Downloading the demo with great enthusiasm.

>> No.6199221


Alright, just tried the demo. Sakuya is a lot more fun to play as than Reimu. Her backwards jump is really useful for getting out of the way of danger, unlike the backflip, which was basically worthless other than looking awesome.

I think my only gripe is that the stopwatch doesn't seem to work very well. Other than that, awesome. The Chen fight was fun.

>> No.6199242

First things I noticed:
1. It's a Castlevania game where the main character doesn't move at a snail's pace. HOLY SHIT.
2. I was disappointed at first when I saw Sakuya flying, but then... it was slow. And it drained MP. Hell yes, this game was never supposed to be flyforevervania!
3. Stage Clear at the end... which means it's going to be a classic Castlevania game. Oh well. We'll still get our Touhou metroidvania in the future, I'm sure.

I have better hopes for this game than I had for the first one, so maybe it will sit on my HD for more than ten minutes. Who knows.

>> No.6199257

Just went for a 1cc of sorts. Hard mode, 0 extra lives. Actually made it to Chen with full health, but the density of her danmaku was just too much for me. Barely dented her.

Surprisingly, though, it was a very fun way to play.

>>Pretty much never has anything good to say about anything.

So silly when I praise another doujin game a few posts down. I gotta agree with this Anon right here >>6190888

Not sure why you're loving the Reimu flying either, as even Frontier Aja realized that it was wrong. Heck even other Anons ITT are saying it was wrong >>6199242

Anyways tell me what you think of the Casltevania stages in RKS or something. I feel they're better than the whole first Touhouvania combined.

>> No.6199369


I never really flew much as Reimu in the first one. I found it to be pretty much worthless except on bosses, and just made you more likely to get hit. It was neat, but not really a huge feature. Not really sure why I listed it.

Also, (only mentioning it because you linked to someone talking about it) Maria mode was WAY easier than using Reimu, considering she has a ridiculously good dash, a really fast double jump, a lightning fast dove attack, etc etc etc.

Can you honestly tell me with a straight face that it is easier to beat Remilia with Reimu than it is to beat Dracula with Maria? I mean come on, I killed Dracula in like 20 seconds without getting hit because she's just so rape. He literally won't even come close to hurting you if you are even halfway competent. Touhouvania on the other hand? Not so much.

I only started trying RKS recently ( a few weeks ago), and I'm to the Wily's castle part. Haven't gotten any further because I have been busy. Not sure if you were referring to any stages in the first half of the game, but while fun, I never saw any stages that really gave me a good rondo of blood feel. Maybe its past where I'm at?

And sorry about singling you out earlier. Just seems every single time I see you post, its pretty much just you saying something I happened to enjoy is shit. Feels bad man.

Eugh, I beat the last one before they patched saving in or patched the Extra boss in. No FUCKING way am I going to be an early adopter of the sequel. Learned my lesson.

Shame they didn't patch non-boring levels, enemies, or bosses in. That youtube of the demo did nothing to inspire me either.

I am using a $300 laptop, and it runs the game at full speed with 60+ chrome tabs (half of which are youtube videos), two monitors, etc etc etc.

If you cannot run this, then perhaps it is time you upgrade?

>> No.6204598

What you listed has more to do with memory and RAM.
The thing with this game is that it is using parallel threads.
That is, it is designed to work on more than one process at the same time, distributing the work load over more than one CPU in order to seemingly do it simultaneously.

It's very common actually, almost all western made games have dual core in their requirements.
There are some drawbacks, like how it raises the required specs, but also how you have to make sure that each threaded process doesn't mess with another running one.
Otherwise there almost only advantages though, both perfomance wise and developer wise.

>> No.6204611

I didn't like the first game either, played it for 20 minutes, and unistalled it 30 minutes after that, deleting it.

I found this demo to be decent however, it was actually kind of fun.

Maybe so. I mean, I can run stuff like Oblivion just fine. Its just when I bought this thing in 05 I opted for the 4000+ over whatever dual cores they had out at the time. Oh well.

>> No.6204666


Yeah. As it turns out its much more important to have more cores than it is to have a higher clock speed. And its gotten to the point where some software is written specifically to work with multiple cores.

It sucks that you can't run it right, but sadly that is just the direction technology has gone. Kudos on keeping with the '05 machine for so long. True dedication.

verification: "Theaving Current". Sounds like a spellcard.

>> No.6204667

>memory and RAM
They're the same bro.

Also, if you have a HypeThreading capable CPU (any P4 with 800 MHz FSB) it should work just fine since you have two virtual cores.

That this shit needs a Core 2 Duo to run at decent speed just proves that programmers nowadays can't code worth shit.

>> No.6204670


Or it means that programmers are getting with the times. But yes, they probably should have considered that some people would be using draconian machines from the dawn of man.

>> No.6204927

>They're the same bro.
Technically no.
RAM is Random Acess Memory, but there are more kinds of memory a computer uses.
But yeah, it might have been redundant for this point.

But yes a HyperThread capable CPU should suffice, it is a "dual" core, after all.
But I don't know the exact requirements for this game.

>> No.6204943

>> No.6206460

Even modern, multithreaded games don't actually require a multi core CPU. They will happily run on a single core CPU albeit slower.

Going with the times doesn't mean increasing the system requirements just for kicks. Relying on your threads actually running in parallel for a game to run is just bad design and completely pointless for a game of this caliber.
