About This File

Type: Bullet Hell
Developer: Team Shanghai Alice
Publisher: Team Shanghai Alice
Release: September 22, 2002
Language: English-Patched (Touhou Patch Center/THCRAP)
Silhouette On Cover: Flandre Scarlet (Extra Boss)

Character Information
Playable Characters: 2 (Reimu, Marisa)

Description

A thick scarlet mist is covering Gensokyo; it blocks out the sun, which causes affected areas to become cold. Our heroines believe the culprit lives in the newly-materialized Scarlet Devil Mansion, and so they depart with the goal of “questioning” those who live there.

Mods
* Retexture Patch This replaces all the imagery in the game with crisper, higher-resolution textures. Sprites are also updated with those from newer games. You pick between versions where the hitbox is never visible (as in vanilla) or always visible.
Focus-Only Hitbox Patch A patch that causes your hitbox to become visible when you’re Focusing (the behavior of all games after this one). (I don’t know if this is compatible with the Retex Patch.)

Unique Gameplay Mechanics
* This is the only Windows game where you cannot see your hitbox while focusing.

Rank
*A hidden value between 0 and 32, higher rank values increase bullet speed and the amount of bullets, having the most prominent effects in boss attacks.
*Rank goes up as time surviving goes on and goes up dramatically with spell card caps.
*Rank goes down by 16 when you are hit, not killed but hit, meaning a deathbomb WILL decrease rank. Some spellcards decrease rank when bombed IE Water Elf.

Scorefile
* This scorefile was provided by an unknown source.
* It has true 100% completion status; Extra is unlocked for all characters and shot types.

does anyone know how to rebind the controls? the letter x doesn't work on my keyboard, so i can't use bombs ?

I can only really recommend using autohotkey or similar software, I can send a script with whatever bindings you want or a compiled version if you want

Hi, are both downloads required? I'm currently only doing the one called Touhou_6__-_The_Embodiment_of_Scarlet_Devil.zip, but if the other one is required, I would like to know.

No, you are fine with just the pre=patched version which you downloaded. The other one is original (official) version in Japanese language without any patches.

Also when it crashes a window opens that says a ton of gibberish with direct sound and stuff.

First of all, ignoring garbled text isn't going to help you at all.

Follow this then run the vpatch.exe or the japanese exe: 

  1. Click the language symbol in the bottom right of the task bar next to the time and select "language preferences".

  2. In the opening window, select "Additional date, time and regional settings" at the bottom.

  3. Select "Region".

  4. In the "Region" window select "Administrative" and then "change system locale" for non-unicode programs to Japanese.

why  does it not come pre patched like the last version that was here a few months ago?

There should be a shortcut called "Touhou06" that'll start the game with the english patch and vpatch
Edit: My fault. The shortcuts link to a specific location so it won't work until you link it to the location of your thcrap_loader.exe. Sorry about that

so far, this version is an absolute nightmare to get running on linux (i guess it would be like that for macos too.) im curious as to why this updated version is here instead of the last one that didnt have to go through this.

Besides adding an directx installer, as people not having directx installed is one of the most common reasons why people can't run the game, some people reported problems with the thcrap version that we used in some files and I kinda rushed with applying the patches again. I'll just apply the standalone patches again and update them on my end before reuploading them to the site.

Attempted to download this one, I am pretty sure it's different? Theres an english-named Touhou06.exe and Touhou06-Config.exe . Attempting to run these gives me an error in japanese that translates roughly to "game executable was not found." pretty weird stuff so far.

I believe that's a result of the garbled text issue that green909 was providing solutions for, I'm having the same problem. Speaking of, does anybody know if there's another solution besides changing your encoding region? That seems pretty severe just to make a game work, and worse, it makes me have to restart my computer, which is annoying ?

The Japanese file names should look normal now. You might have to clear your cookies/cache to not get the old download again.
My settings were set to japanese locale so I either might have just missed it or even caused the problem by archiving the folder and that somehow causing the japanese text to be in Shift-JIS instead of UTF-8 again ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Anyways, switched to english locale again and reuploaded it with normal looking text. Looks like it should be fine now ?

So image 1 is what a quick ls gives me for files, as you can see, one of em is in japanese but alot of the others are garbled text. Image 2 is what happens when i attempt to run Touhou06.exe . I'm curious to see if this issue is operating system-independant, or if this is just a linux issue.Screenshot_20210203_104716.png.cd2d7ce79f609ae3aae9ae89c7fe95b5.png

Oh, and attempting to run it with the LANG=JP variable gets me this text, (box is still the same empty squares) This seems to translate roughly to "game executable was not found." pretty weird stuff so far.
