well that WAS Lunatic mode of Touhou 10 Mountain of Faith, unless you have godly skills and Memorization you don't even bother with Lunatic mode >_>
Yeah, I was wondering about the memorization part. You really have to know where to be, each and every time, in some of those patterns, don't you? Hey, does it matter what screen resolution you play on? Seems like lower resolution might make the movements a little more controllable, considering you sometimes only have a few pixels of maneuvering room.

yeah with Hard mode and Lunatic you don't just dodge things on a whim, if you don't know exactly where you have to be during any giving moment you're dead easily. I could say this about stage 4 5 and 6 for Normal mode as well, alot of the game has to do with memorizing patterns so you can make good strategies as to where you need to go and how fast or slow you need to move, or remember how a bullet spam moves. Does it target you directly or does it flying in random directions, just stuff like that.

I'm not totally sure what you're referring too for resolution, the games only work on one resolution i think since it forces it on you. (not totally sure about this though) I have noticed that i can play MUCH better in full screen mode then in a window cause you can see MUCH more as if you've got a magnifying glass over it. Makes maneuvering through tight bullet patterns eazier.

I meant the screen resolution of your monitor. If you went from something like 1280x960 down to 1024x768, the game window would be the same fixed resolution (640x480), but it would appear larger because it would fill more of the screen.

I've got a 19" widescreen at 1440x900, so Touhou looks kinda' small. My graphics card/monitor combo only allows the native 1440x900 for widescreen. I can use 1024x768, but it's stretched horizontally. If I try to play Touhou 6 full screen with my usual settings, the game freaks out and starts running fast.

On another note... I installed IaMP and tried it. I had no idea what I was doing... I just started mashing buttons... and I beat the first 3 stages. :lol: Easy mode, of course. Easy is easy, I guess. I'm not much of a gamer, so these things are kinda' new to me. I'm just trying to broaden my horizons and explore the world of Touhou a little more.

How does that compute? >_>
I don't know ^^'
But for some reason, EoSD seemed a little easier than the others I tried (can't remember which ones though). At least i can pass some levels before dying. On normal mode of course, I tried Lunatic just for fun, didn't even made it until the boss :p

My achievements on Touhou include Normal 1CC's on EoSD, PCB, IN, MoF and SA; also PCB Extra, PCB Phantasm and IN Extra. Haven't been playing much recently as this computer keeps getting assorted problems.

As for fandom, I'm just into a few arrange groups (even if my favorite is the game soundtrack), have around 2GB of Touhou doujinshi and official manga but I don't really like MADs of them. Those just like to ruin characters' images.
Seishi wrote:Touhou is incredibly hard, but that's put on by the genre itself. It took me at least a week of two hours per day on PCB easy mode to stop sucking on a regular basis. Imperishable Night is STILL the only game I've 1cc'd on normal, though I have not really tried a whole lot in the past half year or so. The game literally desensitized me after a good while, so the frustration of constantly dying didn't get to me as much as other games. I still have flashes of that dying SFX in my head every now and then...

Oh the fanon, the fanon...it's retardedly huge. It's so massive it has its own significant gravitational pull which I cannot escape.
Oh I even had a time period when I put that SFX as the closing windows sound. Seriously.

As for difficulty, fans of the genre say Touhou is actually easy compared to the rest. One time I played Seihou and god it hurt.

Although it's more like Reimu+Yukari.

Wrong math operation.

I only completed SA with Reimu B. Had a shot earlier with the translation patch, but failed at Utsuho's last spell card, which is my usual benchmark. Well, at least could read what killed me this time. What sucks is that even the bad ends are hard to get. Maybe even harder that good ends.

Also, looking forward to Touhou UFO. Sanae ftw. Sakuya ftl. Great decision by ZUN.

Well, at least SA is now kicking my butt in a language I understand......
Hard 1cc, I swear I'll get you someday!

Also, guess who just received MILLIONS of new fanart since the announcement of UFO yesterday? Sanae is the fastest in rising popularity it seems, from the 6th poll and now this. Future contender?

Did I ever tell you I loved you? Actually, I'm not CRAZY about Sanae, but Sakuya never turned me on. Neither did the rest of Koumakan

lol its Just ZUN following his usual position of all 5th stage bosses becomming playable in a newer game.
Sakuya in PCB, Youmu in IN, Reisen is a slight exception, but then shes playable in IaMP, PoFV, and SWR, and now Sanae the Miko Copycat will join them. (i think Zun is running out of ideas :s )


Although i dunno how ZUN is ever gonna get Orin in as a playable character lol

I do agree that Sakuya is better than Sanae, but just because something come later doesn't mean it's inferior.
For example, I like Orin better than Chen.
