Description

This is the expansion to the popular fangame, Touhou Puppet Dance Performance. It plays very similarly to the base game with the main differences being the story plays out in a slightly different order, and puppets featuring Touhou characters from 14.5 and 15 are now included, which the previous game did not have. Additionally, new areas can be found in the expansion, as well as a new puppet type, the Warped type.

In this game's story, the player character finds themself transported to Gensokyo, to learn that a strange incident is occurring; many puppets shaped like familiar Touhou characters are running around Gensokyo, and no one knows where they're coming from. At the same time, people have learned to tame these puppets, and many are using them to battle one another in a form of new sport. Regardless, the player cannot return home until the incident is resolved; they decide to use these puppets to help solve the incident, so that they can return to the outside world (why would you ever do that though).

For those who don't know anything about Touhou Puppet Dance Performance, it's basically Touhou in Pokemon form with a few key differences, those being that the equivalent to what IVs are in Pokemon are visible in TPDP. Instead of being a numerical value between 1 and 31, it's a letter grade between S and E-, S being the best a stat can be and E- being the worst a stat can be. The way moves are learned and EVs are gained is also significantly different; when you hit the requirements for learning a new move, you can learn it through the Edit screen of your puppet where you can learn a skill from the entire list of what's available to the puppet at that level, though they cost PP to learn which is gained through winning battles. You can also use PP to reinforce stats, which is basically EVs except you have objective control over them.

Evolutions are handled in the form of style changes that every puppet has available from level 30 onward. Every puppet gets the option to evolve into any of three forms, two of which range across Power, Speed, Assist, or Defense, depending on the puppet. In Shard of Dreams, a new Extra style is available as the third option for any puppet to evolve into. For example, Chen at level 30 can choose to evolve into either Extra Chen, Speed Chen, or Assist Chen. You can only style change once though; the only way to reverse it is through reincarnation which is only available postgame.

This one actually comes with the correct translation files. One of them was missing, the other was outdated.

nah, you should be fine. but I have a hard time reading your words so assuming what problem you have here.(I am a linux user btw but I find my ways)

the main reason you can't patch/run/install the game correctly is because
1. you need JP fonts installed on your Linux distro(and no, not the WINE ones)
2. it needs to be put in the right environment
3. the 'notkey' file is to contain the base game(aka TPDP)

Make sure to get these requirements(on Linux) before you do anything to update/patch this game(not to mention this uses WINE so...eh. also please backup your files)
I will give a couple of commands(well just one but...it's useful)

env LC_ALL=ja_JP.UTF-8 wine '<INSERT_FILE_NAME_HERE>'

there are maybe better alternatives to this but I use this,
So, to install patches/update the game first we

cd Path/to/file
//note : it would be best to keep them in .wine/drive_c/Program\ files

then use the command mentioned above to install the update, which will be done like this(as this is how I've done it and for efficiency's sake and also please put the patch files in the exact same folder as the game)
//note : for the SoD version
env LC_ALL=ja_JP.UTF-8 wine 'enbu_ap1000_1102.exe'
env LC_ALL=ja_JP.UTF-8 wine 'enbu_ap1102_1103.exe'

then afterwards you can install the translation patch(do I have to mention how to install it? nah, you already know..I hope)and to start the game you just
cd Path/to/file
env LC_ALL=ja_JP.UTF-8 wine '幻想人形演舞-ユメノカケラ-.exe'
//or what ever name it maybe
that should get you set up to play it on linux(ubuntu distro...haven't tested it yet with other distros yet)
after some cleaning, it should look like this(more or less)

Would this also work for Mac OS?

Never mind, I somehow got it to work with wine. I don't have any experience with coding, but I'll try to explain what I did in the event it might help someone with the same issue. After installing and updating the games, along with the translations I had a problem with opening YnK. The log said "0:notkey\dat\gn_dat1\common\EFile.binが開けません".

I fixed this somehow, by creating a new file in the same file I downloaded the YnK patch, named it "notkey" and put the original base game in there.

I also renamed a few things because they were in gibberish, but I think only the base game file "幻想人形演舞" has to be called its original name otherwise it doesn't work (for me at least). After doing all this, I was able to run the executable and play the game. This probably isn't the best way to fix it, but it works for me.

So long story short, doing what Ascepius says to do on Linux will also work for Mac. But I didn't download Japanese fonts or run anything with the environment LC_ALL=ja_JP.UTF-8 which is most likely why everything was in gibberish for me. On second thought, can a mod delete my previous 2 posts? They seem useless now that I think about it.

Seems like Virustotal is detecting an adware in SoD's setup.exe?

I'm not sure if this is a false positive or if this the right place to report these. I just wanted to make sure, so apologies if there are any mistakes.

Did some research and decided to just run the file.Turns out, it really was just a false positive as there are no problems that I know of so far.

SoD is the expansion pack for TPDP that was released some time after the original game. It modifies a ton of things, including the story of the original game by a certain degree, and adds new playable 2hus.

Well, I've managed to get SoD up and running, but I'm still having some issues.  I'll open the game with Locale Emulator and it will run fine for a few minutes, then the screen will freeze.  The base game is running just fine, so I can't seem to figure out why SoD is giving me an issue.  I've tried multiple times uninstalling and reinstalling.  :/

I am having the exact same problem. The base game appears to work fine for me, but I can only play SoD for about 10 minutes, tops, before it does the screen freeze. And sometimes, it just freezes as soon as I load in. If anyone has a fix, PLEASE, let me know.

Downloaded it once and got SOD running for a while, but it froze after only a few minutes of gameplay. Attempted to uninstall and redownload and we still have a freezing problem... Has no one come up with a solution for this yet?

I finally got SOD to work but am still having some bugs. 1. on the opening screen and style change screen there is no text. 2. the battle backgrounds don't work. 3. the sound effects don't work. 4. the effects for a puppet coming out after a style change don't work. 5. there is leftover Japanese text. The last one bothers me the least, but if anyone can help me with the others, that would be great. Thanks!

Hi, so I download the base game but it boots up for a few seconds and then turns off automatically. Before I download it it said that the file doesn't exist, would I want to create one and I chose yes. Am I doing anything wrong here?

Ok so this is the manual info for anyone who got freeze screen(like me), i try to set this program, and then it work for around 45 min to 2 hours, sometimes the screen still freeze because of user verification: fix didn't work and i don't know why, may needs help from anyone who know it

-First one: right-click on the exe file (nitori display or reimu display are the same), selecting properties, there are 5 bars at total, selecting compatibility bar, there are multiple methods to selecting

-Second one: you need to select run this program in compatibility mode for 

+ Select Window XP ( Service pack 3)  

+ On setting part, you need to select reduce color mode, 16-bit (65536) color

+Select only run as admintration on the checking box

+Change high DPI setting:

*Selecting all checking box

*Select when i open this program   and   application

+Change for all users if you have multiple users

-The third step (this step is only for testing purpose, you can ignore it if it is fine to play) : close this properties and right-click, select troubleshoot compatibility, and then select the first one, select test this program, after you testing it, click on next and find the trouble 

-My only trouble is user verification: fix didn't work and i do not know how to fix it, if anyone who know it ,help me :V

-Final step: anytime you play, remember to run as admintration

Extra: if you use laptop or pc content power mode setting, it better to keep in better performance or best performance as well

That is my opinion to solve it, even the duration aren't long as normal player , if anyone have the better methods, pls give me, thank you :)))

Guys, I've found the solution for this Error Message.
It happens if you rename or move the installation folder of the original game. To fix that, go to "C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\FocasLens\幻想人形演舞"; there open "gn_enbu.ini" and change the path to a current one (it could be in english). That's all.

Did you ever resolve your issue, @Fui-nee? I have the same black square problem with number values, but I haven´t found any solution about it.

Hello.Don't know if this is still an issue here, but I can't even run the first setup. When I tried to run it, I got an error saying "The filename, directory name or label syntax is incorrect". I also changed my region to Japan, so how do I solve this problem?
