Soku, PoFV, and AoE Netplay thread. Maybe someone will even host some HM today.
Adonis1, I can switch over to Adonis2 if anyone requests it.

Threadly reminder, if you'd like to play this game, here's an all-in-one pack made by a kindly anon. Shoutouts to the creator if you still come to these threads.
Inside the pack you'll find a folder and a text file, make sure you read it. Soku is an expansion pack for SWR, you will need to connect the two using the included batfile (connect soku to SWR.bat) after extracting.
To netplay with anyone running Sokuroll you will need to run Sokuroll yourself. Simply start the game and then run Sokurollloader.exe afterward. You'll know it's working because the game's title has switched to japanese.
Then you go to Vs Network, copy a host's IP+port from the thread, and hit Connect to IP from clipboard.
To host, you'll need an open port. Any port will do, but the default is 10800. Then hit set up server, post your IP+port in the thread and wait.
If you don't know how to open a port, take a look at a port forwarding guide, such as the ones found here: http://portforward.com/english/routers/port_forwarding/routerindex.htm
Don't forget to check out the profile menu to fiddle with controls, make a name, and look into building your first deck.
>play HM because it actually looks pretty beautiful
>character select screen
>eh this is fine
>play the game
Holy fuck. I honestly don't know what's happening. Sometimes I shoot stuff, sometimes I don't. Sometimes I just go down, sometimes I just go up.
I'm far too tired to play Soku today, so lets play some Soku.
Fighting anyone and everyone.
Advice is always welcome!

Thank you kind anon.
Guess ill attempt it pretty soon.
>In mid air
>while freely changing trajectory.
The mechanic is even referred to as flight.
I'm playing SA and I think I was doing fairly okay until I ran into a spell card named Four Devas Arcanum "Knock Out by Three Steps". What in the everloving fuck was I supposed to do against that?
What difficulty are you playing?
I always try to stay in the middle of the final bullets and 2nd wave of bullets to reduce the number of bullets spawned below.
Just go down and dodge upwards once the bullets start moving.
>I always try to stay in the middle of the final bullets and 2nd wave of bullets to reduce the number of bullets spawned below.
Don't do that, on Lunatic the bullets are allowed to spawn on top of you.
Every day until you like it.
There's a reason that we have 6+ musician 2hus, and no artist 2hus, anon.
Don't be so harsh man.
Damn, I didn't think it would be THAT incomprehensible...
Who needs beauty when you have a bunch of difficult to dodge bullets spewing out of a giant tank?
Touhoumon Blue for GOTTA CATCH 'EM ALL and free-roaming casual fun
Touhoumon Enhanced for Kanto and Johto
Touhoumon Purple AKA Touhoumon EXTREME GRAPE EDITION for best overall despite being in Hoenn
Touhoumon Insane Edition if you hate both fun and yourself, and love mandatory flash mazes
I'm convinced people only write this stuff as a joke now.
QUICK! STREAMING WHEN?!
Already beaten 5 bosses!
Oh god, the salt is strong in this one
>All those 2Cs
Please no, you're not meant to know that anti air is my weakness.
I really need to sleep now, might host again later if the thread is still alive. Host down.
I think I used it 3 times, two of those were during mountain vapor where I hit it for the hell of it. That one in the last match is because I'm flat out stupid.
Insane is my fav
all 6 of the elite 4felt amazing
In fact beating all their those dark last word stages, the H stages, and the super stages felt fucking amazing especially when you didn't use toxic or stat boosting items
ill do a stream soon.
doing some quick things around the house.
I hope so, I always worry that I'll get someone like them on my ass after working on a game.
>Hey you made that game right
>Why are you so bad at balancing
>I demand you patch the game exactly how I tell you to
>Nevermind I'm absolutely horrible at the game and don't know what I'm talking about
These kinds of people are always flooding forums of popular games too.
That Maiden's Graveyard was a blast
I like how all the wild mons were 100 so repels were useless, and it was a Flash-maze that disallowed the use of flash
I especially liked all the pits that required you to have an escape rope, dig, or teleport to git out of
The writing was top-notch as well
I'm just a sucker for retardedly high unfair difficulties.
I wish more of the touhous were useable.
I mean at a certain point if you're using all last word stages you might as well pack your shit up and go home.
Fucking everything had cross chop, aero blast, earthquake and filler move of their choice.
Fucking Lily B i think was almost unkillable as well as H Rumia
It just felt so good beating them
I heard it isn't fun
It is fun, but just for casual play. It doesn't really have the replayability value of other fighting games and gets old pretty fast, especially without people very close to you to play with.
There's unfair and then there's just dumb. Like, in that screenshot you posted, Strength was misspelled as "strength" even though that ability existed in the base game - how did he even do that? Insane is just a lazy port of the Japanese Lunatic version that made all the mazes flash mazes, rewrote the text with the mental maturity of a mentally-retarded twelve-year-old, and called it a day. At least agastya's version has a fully functional Battle Frontier for some end-game challenge that's fair or, at least, fairly unfair.
Fine! I didn't wanna play with you guys anyway.
If you're really hard pressed for an opponent I can stave off sleep for a little while longer.
I WILL FUCKING FIGHT YOU
Quick question: Do the official mangas have lore in them/actually follow the games or are they just slice of life bullshit?
Messed it up. Once again.
Streamin Rock Maiden.
IotM&IotE is a 4koma.
Silent Sinner in Blue is part lore, part mystery and part rocket science.
Strange and Bright Nature Deity is the wacky but comfy to read antics of three ditzy fairies
>Do the official mangas have lore in them
>actually follow the games
>are they just slice of life bullshit?
Sometimes no, but mostly yes.
I'm pretty sure the official manga references previous incidents as well as enlighten us with new info.
They look like slice of life, but they're loaded with implications. Except SSiB and FS where shit happens
actually kind of mediocre all around, and introduces some of the least liked characters in the series, and suffers from a few plot holes, mostly involving moonbitches not following danmaku rules.
Be prepared to meet the Most Popular Touhou Characters.
I'm sure the intention here is to show that Erin is a dangerous crazy bitch, but I can't help but think it's really girly to be putting pretty ribbons on what's supposed to be a weapon.
>It's actually kind of mediocre all around
Say it to my face nerd
expecting hosts in a shitposting thread
I've been trying to do everything but fish for hits., it's your hit, run and zone playstyle which my suwako can do little against because of her different flight, poor neutral game and trouble getting close.
Hey, in gensokyo the main competition is a challenge to see who's more fabulous
It's less about that, and more about how they break not only the rules of danmaku during a danmaku match
which no one bothers to point out, by the wayBut they even ignore the weakness that they're stated to have several times. That was like Superman holding some kryptonite and not feeling a thing. Also they're kind of assholes.
It's kind of mediocre all around. Weakest official manga, aside from maybe IotMIotE
She studied hard in school, listened to her parents and ate her vegetables
Worst Vampire at that
We all know Kurumi is superior in every possible way
the part where reimu n co fight yorihime drops the ball hard, but the rest of the manga packs it quite nicely, especially when yukari finally pulls the strings together.
But you cant really blame it, the manga is way more focused on the "political" war and underhanded methods of each faction than it is a battle manga. In fact I wouldnt even call it a battle manga as the only actual battle is the two chapters of the rocket trip. Its like the author lost the focus on that confrontation
>tfw your waifu is the cutest 2hu
7 years,still going strong
Feels good having best 2hu as mai waifu
Yorihime was just kind of an asshole, but she also treated Reimu generously afterwards in the Lunar Capital when she really didn't have to. Toyohime, on the other hand, wanted to atomically purify all of Gensokyo for the crime of being born, which puts her on another level of asshole entirely.
Please refrain from aggressively hostile behavior.
I see it more like she let the huge lunarian ego speak for her but then got no balls to do anything and tried to pull a 2deep oneliner. Hell, yukari was even laughing at her face
Fun games Axel!
I'll be throwing up my own host here in a bit.
I guess, but the point is that she still presumed to speak of judgement when that is the Enma's sole purview, while Yorihime just wanted to kick these weird aggressive jerks back to wherever they came from. I think that even though many fans hate Yorihime unfairly for beating up Reimu, a closer reading paints her as, by far, the more reasonable of the two sisters. The whole arc was poorly done, though, because of a lack of communication between ZUN and Aki Eda.
Lunarian arrogance in general is annoying, because they are just humans who fucked off to the moon when the earth was changing, and they must have been too lazy to try and prevent the change.
>mfw no PoFV host for god knows how many threads
I-its not like I'm good at fighting games anyway.
Best title theme? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wUHyG9XqOMI
I see Crimson almost everytime.
Where have you been?
Anything I should know about PoFV? Like when to use those charged shots. I've been meaning to play it against people but I only played PoFV back then without any real translation.
Expect, I mean.
I'm a sucker for this one.
I still want a Neil Armstrong x Toyohime x Yorihime doujinshi.
I like UFO's.
Never use level 3/4's, use level 2's for pressure/offense/defense against humans, if you are playing ai, offense does jack shit, just use meter for defense.
>tfw recently went through the
lunar invasion partin FMW3
Toyohime's spellcards create danmaku fields that literally nullify your evasion, break any fucking barrier and still deal enough damage to kill the one behind it or even buff hit chance up to fucking 267%
Anyone who plays it can tell me if it was even beatable without timing out? i was just fucking scared because even my best characters had 21% chance to hit, and i think i only survived the battle after because i got sakuya to bait and miraculously evade everything with Private Square
Hearing DDCs title theme always makes me feel warm inside and somehow sad.
I mean damn, we're at touhou 14 here. Its come a long way.
It is, timing it out might actually waste more of your resources because Yorihime gets to chew through your army's spirit for free.
Heck, its possible to do the 170 power dialog choice if you are crazy enough.
I think it was not taken as a declaration of war but a sucker punch to their ego, as "those lowly humans reached their beautiful moon". They even got so angry that they hurled the flag back to the earth.
But the fun part is how it landed in gensokyo, as if it was a metaphor of how the moon landing became nothing than another earthly myth
I love how Zun keeps pulling those
AFAIK theres a obamaXmoonbitches
It was much shorter than the last one.
Also, what dialog choice did you choose? The first one debuffs Yorihime and buffs your army, the second gives you three more choices, each buffing Yorihime by an increasing amount, the last setting her to 170 power.
Good games 12shi.
You were playing really passively at first. Maybe practicing getting out of pressure or trying to figure out how I play? I don't think you would normally play like that, and you were playing a lot more actively in the later rounds, but it left me very confused.
First choice, i remember reading about it some time after the game came out so i did and got that free 120 spirit for everyone but god damn that was a chore, in the escape battle there were like 12 rabbits with her and i got to kill them with just Sakuya and Meiling in a team,
Still its funny that after all that shit
everyone gets hyped and they still manage to kick Toyohime's ass, its the opposite of those RPGs where you kick ass but get destroyed on the next sequence!
Nothing gets me more pumped to play Touhou than EoSD's title.
It's funny how you think he's the one doing it, when for the most part he never even reads the threads, which has been mentioned a lot.
we all know Ret is the true wau fanatic\
Funny thing is, if you ask him, he will indeed say he is not and that ssr is slayer, which technically is true
Want someone tough to fight tier
>fucking Kogasa is harder than Nue
fuck those spellcards
fuck the UFO mechanic
Rock maiden 2's pretty decent but I can't help but feel it doesn't live up to the first.
Anyone else play Rockmaiden 2 yet?
>implying pc 98 is canon
It's canon except for whenever it contradicts Windows lore
ZUN said so, don't argue with it
your favorite pc 98 touhou is doing their own thing in the background instead of resolving incidents with Reimu because ZUN would rather work on the Windows cast than explain why Mima has been silent for over a decade
I haven't run with Reimu yet, but I didn't really have much trouble with stages with Youmu. She can cut through shields and if you really need a projectile you can charge. The only real obstacle I noticed was the wind up on her air attack, but that's trivial once you get used to it.
It's decent, but far from good.
If you press up and any direction button while in the air, you get frozen and don't actually do any of the mentioned.
That's BULLSHIT at Parsee's because of one stupid ladder next to a pit. I had to farm lifes from Yamame more than 5 fucking times just to get killed by a cannon Tewi later. That's where I hit my limit, until now since I'm re-trying that stage.
Sorry for not watch the stream, I had to go into a discussion of where my life has gone with my family
Who wants to give a newb a good trouncing?
i just wanna play with someone besides CPU
So which do you think did it better?
Rock maiden 1 or 2?
My vote goes to 1
1 in gameplay, 2 has better music IMHO
You mean you can do a jump and move with no problems hitting up?
Because that's what's happening to me!
I can make you quit this game. Are you up to that?
Throw a host and let us see you get rekt.
But the color is off...
not that guy but
I want to get destroyed by you Juayde
I need a break from the Sims and FMW anyways
I'm worst than crap teir so lets do it
Already tested and worked far better than my mouse.
I still sucked at that AoE+ trying to send hordes of lunatic fairies against Cero and Irish!
This is bait right?
Ah fuck it, have a IP and join NOW!
Sokuroll 1.3 - The only chilean in the sokumap
GGS Muii. I am outclassed. It is frustrating. Give me advice please.
Host down for now.
I don't know why but I find that
I'm good enough to help out new players.
I just can't host for them,
but I thought it was cute for some reason that he asked to be bullied.
She's sleeping, so she's not watching anything.
Oh, you are a pretty bad player.
Sorry if I was mistaking your post for bait. Did you enjoyed the beatdown enough to return to Sims with more energy?
AoE+ started already? Or I can rehost?
I'd probably be better if I didn't panic the moment I miss or something.
I have no idea how to play this correctly against actual players and not just cpu and some friends I dragged along
HEY JUAYDE YOU READY TO GET SHITSTOMPED AT THE TOURNAMENT?
If I do make a fangame, what I am going to do is set up a power level chart in advance, and make sure I stick to it.
That, and make it so my Waifu isn't a boss fight, because I would feel the need to make them difficult as fuck.
Instructions are in the download.
I googled it myself and it was at one of the expected places but thank you anyway.
>finally I have a new motivation to beat touhou 1
I always out the 98 games off because of the hope of an english patch, still loved them for the music.
You need to work on that maid, players beyond my skill are no pushovers and will rape you with no fear, and I'm not that good to begin with.
Can you take the challenge and raise to the top of this ruthless game?!
Host down until someone wants to stomp my arrogant ass >>260245335
I'm sure I will be, Tenshi anon!
But I won't be killed without trying to fight...for once!
Hell, Nils is in this tournament too! I have to beat him because I have to!
What about that OJ game?
That wasnt me, the other tenshi anon.
I played oj some hours every day but you never noticed me senpai ;_,
Only got an invite from the steamgroup named anime 101.
Also tenshi is a cat!
I'm still waiting for a match with you sometime!
I will win with Aru because winning by giving is the best way to win!
How many hours before soku threads are you "free" to play?
Yeah I'm in the tournament, but I'm hardly practicing for it so who knows how it'll turn out.
Cats are good, you're alright anon.
Canine power is better!
I'm gonna give my all to this! No regrets! You heard me Nils?!
And don't push it! Everyone trains at their own pace!
>The guy doesn't even want to earn things himself.
Well he can just play DotA2 if he doesn't want to work for things.
You're getting my best pictures anyway!
Cat's always seem comfy, I like them for that.
Thing is, I haven't done hardly anything.
Anon, stop self inserting your thoughts into innocent diaperhats.
Every time I kill a Kogasa in Rockmaiden I feel like dying inside. What is happening?
I just want Okuu
Kogasa is love. Kogasa is life.
All she wants is to live a meaningful life by surprising people after being abandoned for god knows how long.
I swear to god, moot put this bug on purpose in 4chan for le epic lulz0r!
Thanks for the games. I wasn't trying to taunt or do anything of the sort, I know it probably looked that way. I was just testing some things. I never knew you had a blocking issue.
I was just denying you your easy calm heal with your system card, that was a bit drastic.
Taunting? When did that happen? I was very aware that you were testing things out, especially during that halfway mark where you were jumping around.
As for a blocking issue, do you mean my inability to defend myself? I'm also pretty aware of that, usually I can cover it up against most people with my aggression but you know exactly how to counter me. I should go back to spellcarding after my 4th dial a hit. That'll put some fear back into you when grazing my ground pressure.
I was jumping around cause you said you had some neat air combos, I was hoping you'd use em. By blocking problem I mean that after I got you into a corner you didn't block on wakeup at all and I got loads of damage in from that, repeatedly. Unless that was intentional.
Oh, that not blocking on wakeup was kind of intentional. It's my new plan to learn to Miasma Sweep under pressure or die trying. As you saw, results were not entirely great. The 6c ones were a bit more successful but still bad.
Also I wouldn't say my air combos are neat, they're merely existent. Which is a good step ahead of most of my ground combos. I know a few cool combos but like hell I can pull them off in an actual fight.
Hit the ball into the flip tiles. You can shoot, slide, and swing your gohei which each give it different trajectories. You can also break enemy bullets that way.
If that's not the english version then >>260251026 those are there.
I'm not exactly at the skill level most would associate with Asian and my connection is plain shit most of the time
Some guy named Tempest hosted here a while ago, he moved to the Soku lobby due to a lack of fellow asians to fight
