Okay, I got Embodiment of Scarlet Devil from /rs/. I'm just trying to patch it.

But the patch isn't working. God, I feel and sound like a moron..

>> No.987490

if you're a completistfag, start with PC98 versions, heck even i didn't touch those yet, that is if your PC can still run it. if you just wanna know what all the fuss is all about, PCB is pretty much casual friendly.


>> No.987492


looks like it

>> No.987503

IN is a bad game to start with - you pick up too much bad stuff from it.

PCB is better.

DO NOT start with IN, you will beat it then play the others and keep on dying thinking you can you use your bombs to escape death. EoSD is a good start because you will get to know where your hitbox is without seeing it. PCB is in between.

Personally i had a lot of trouble with EoSD, i found it the hardest out of them all.

For music, it's up for you to decide what you want. A good starter would be dBu, they have made a remix of almost every song. If your lazy just go to this faggish site doujinstyle.com it has a lot of the music groups there available.

Porn is easy to find, just go to wakachan, gensokyo.zomgwtf.net, or danbooru.

Cirno is the strongest, do even bother debating that.

(Why does no one recommend MoF to play first? It's fun)

>> No.987673

Even worse.

Enjoy your shitty mislabeled tracks and lack of Japanese character encoding.

Just get the albums individually like I did over the years; they're are only a handful of dojin groups (including ZUN) that are decent.

>> No.987698

Just start of Mystic Square, then move on to Embodiment of the Scarlet Devil. Then if you want something easy, play Perfect Cherry Blossom, if not, play Imperishable Night.

>> No.987751

yes do this, easy mode is bad

>> No.987753

Perfect Cherry Blossom is the best to start with.

It has some refinements that make it easier than EoSD, and a lot easier to pick up than IN's micromanagement of the spirit/human meter that can make the difference between running out of time or getting the good end.

If you're like me and you could care less about the games. Try these doujin groups for a general view of the gensyoko fandom.


>> No.987765

Those groups are bad and PCB's too easy to start with.

Just follow what >>987698 said.

>> No.987766


>could care less


>> No.987790

Mystic Square is a good start. There is a bad habit of item collection boundary quickly going to the bottom of the screen (if you take the first 10 or so above collection you'll have Dream bonus full shortly after the midboss of level 1), but you shouldn't concern yourself with points so much anyway.

Otherwise things like orthodox spellcards and tough level enemies starting from level 4 make it great practice.

There's also not one boss that is insanely difficult, except Yumeko in level 5. She is harder than Shinki in my opinion.

>> No.987797

Saku Saku and Hinawa's Store are some good ones, too.

>> No.987820

Sorry to seek technical support here, but why do I get 10-15% slowdown on EoSD, and <1% on PCB/IN?

>> No.987838

What stats are your computer?

When I try PCB on a Pentium III 800Mhz with a bogged down XP I get <1FPS.

>> No.987840

EoSD is buggy, i remember getting 7000 fps when i first opened it, which i had to fix.

though i don't know why you are getting slowdown...

>> No.987857


Refined code since EoSD.

>> No.987872

vistaids, 3gb ram, intel dual core at 1.73ghz, onboard graphics.

Obviously there's a couple of settings I can tweak, but it doesn't do much. Any obscure options that I can change in the custom.exe?

>> No.987875

ZUN stopped drinking for 5 minutes after he released EoSD and sorted the code out.

I got the game from >>987509

>> No.987904

If you hold control to skip conversations, that's where most of your slowdown percentage will come from.

>> No.987909

Eh, the lag is quite noticeable even before the first chat in EoSD. The 10-15% is from only playing the first stage.

>> No.987920

>PCB's too easy to start with.
Wouldn't starting with an easier game make more sense? I'd rather follow a decent learning curve than bang my head against a brick wall then be bored shitless once I play IN.

Yeah, I realised I fucked up.

I downloaded Embodiment of Scarlet Devil as well as Perfect Cherry Blossom and I was trying to use the Perfect Cherry Blossom patch with Embodiment of Scarlet Devil.
