There's no official romanization. It's just 2hu fans being retards.
>>21141654
>Orin
Drag the zombie fairies at the top, and then go back down the screen, keep firing at Orin. Heavy micrododging is required for the non-spells. For the spell with the "clouds", they are aimed and regularly spaced: try to figure out the hitbox and find a way to the left or right and keep your ears open for the spawning sound. The last spell is bullshit, bomb it.

Are you actually fucking retarded? Their names are shown romanized in the Japanese versions of the games.

Maribel has never been in any game (Yukari aside) and has never had her name romanized by ZUN anywhere
EoSD doesn't show romanized names of the bosses when fighting them and the same is true of all the other games Flandre appears as a boss in. In addition "Flandre" is only one of the ways ZUN has romanized her names over the years

ReimuA, by the way what's the pattern for her first spell? I've seen replays where the player somehow manages to pass the lasers after they stop moving, but how much time do I got before they "activate"?
>>
>>21144593
The lasers activate roughly two seconds after they stop. Don't move against them (I mean, in the opposite direction of their rotation before they fire) or else they will "shuffle". Just wait until right before they fire (there is an audio cue) and micrododge in the same direction they rotated. This keeps the pattern unmoved and it gives you extra space to manoeuver against the yellow bullets (which are actually the most annoying part). Avoid large movements, this is ALL about taps.

also satorin is not hard for a stage 4 boss, though some shots have it easier (desu yukarin is the easiest, I love doing her last spell)

also Lumia is the correct name for eosd stage 1 boss
>>
>>21160240
there really doesn't seem to be a route for this
the blue figures all take random paths, and mamizou randomly moves left or right. The only aimed thing is the yellow bullets, and no matter what I do, eventually I slip up and take a hit
I've had slightly better luck attempting to manoeuvre in a square shape, but it falls apart nine out of ten attempts.

You are not staying under mamizou the whole time right? Its easier if you get out of the human circle every time they appear by going around the screen

I try to get out of the circle and much as I can, but from the recordings of myself that I made, it seems to just result in me not hitting at all until I eventually go down, even with that doll that widens shots

>>21173916
like the other dude said, try to play slightly forward. If you're hugging the bottom of the screen you can only dodge in 3 directions while if you're up more you can dodge in 4. In cases where the bullets form a wall you can pull back and wait for them to form an opening rather than trying to thread the needle

not a request, but if you're looking for new challenges and enjoy timeout phases (and if you haven't already tried this) then you can freeze boss timers and see which attacks become interesting after their normal timeout period.

sinkable vortex is the only one i remember offhand that produced interesting results, but i'd guess that any attacks that progressively change over time will continue to change after their ordinarily allotted time.

Just started playing EoSD (also my first time playing touhou). Should I just start from hard or begin with normal (right now I'm playing on hard and see a bit of progression but not tons). I like to play games on hard difficulties from the start but not sure if touhou is a good game for that.

you'll literally be able to 1cc hard and maybe even lunatic before you can beat most extra stages

Ran's first spell is literally just streaming, second is "stay in the relatively safe area", and third is a simple misdirect. You being too stupid to figure out gimmick spells and/or too stubborn to study a replay doesn't mean it's difficult.
>>
>>21178691

What does this even mean?
>>
>>21178698
If it's too frustrating it is a good idea maybe to just go on to touhou 7. FLandre has no part of it just Sakuya. You never know you could 1cc PCB perhaps before eosd, and then try ran's extra stage.

I played a bit of all the third classic games first before I ever got to beating flandre (eventually did).
I think it was more fun than to just repeat on one game over and over.

Impossible. I can't git gud enough for both of them. Those are the only two I'm missing for a no-items run.

By Kanako's one do you mean 9-1? There's a trick for that one that makes it very doable.
>>
>>21179025
I just bruteforce it. Start just from outside the ring, start going up until pointblank when onbashiras come and when rice bullets comes just move down through the path that was opened by the up movement earlier.
That's what I'm doing. Is there any trick in the stage?

>>21179035
That up movement is what I meant by the trick, though I guess it could be the intended method.

For me, the only truly difficult Ran spell is Charming Siege, since it can wall you hard. All the others are just direction and git gud.
>>
>>21176323
it's worth a laugh to let that one go a while longer (with invincibility and not erasing bullets). it gets to a point where the only way to read anything is to move your eyes with the bullets, which is wild. and when you've had enough, you can kill the spell for a bit more silliness.

if you really wanted a webm, you could record a few seconds of pure-skill dodging once things have gone to plaid. but i only brought it up for the challenge and because it's something that folks might not know about.

haven't had any luck finding others. checked mof s4/s6 and ufo s4-s6. i think i checked eosd s3-s6 a few months ago and the only thing that was affected was meiling's midboss spell, which completely broke (although circling a few times would indeed be a challenge, to say the least).

I forgot the ocassional fat fairy inverse Matarah Dukkha-like spam. Besides that, everything is streamable.
As for where to start, look up any perfect lunatic run. Most of them start right and work their way from there. This of course assumes you already have the stage progression layout in your mind. Though you should see if it's doable for you.

The music is incredibly helpful for timing and memorization. I'll often lower the volume and listen to podcasts or some such, but i never turn the music off.

I've always listened to the original music while playing and it's not gonna change anytime soon. Been playing for years now. The only time you MIGHT want to turn it off is when you attempt the same Last Word over and over again without stopping.

>>21179417
It's definitely the hump of that game. Just remember to bomb. If your first death of the run is to Aya then you're fine, and Aya and the rest of the game aren't even really that hard compared to most 2hu late stages.
>>
>>21179645
Just play Raiden, Crimzon Clover WORLD IGNITION Boost, Dangun Feveron or even Seihou, better stages and scoring systems, the only thing Len'en has going for it is some of the bosses. I still don't understand how after so many updates the games are still unpolished as shit.
>>
>>21179417
Lots of streaming and redirection. Try to find the gaps where you can safely redirect. Just bomb the section right after the mid-boss if you feel unsafe, but Momiji herself is actually easier than she looks. Don't panic.
You might want to bomb when the big fairies spam a lot of stuff on your screen after that.

Does anyone have any tips for Lunatic Impact? After some practice I can do reasonably well up to that point but that spell is a run ender. It's pretty much the only thing between me and the clear.
>>
>>21179478
Stop shilling
>>
>>21181118
First of all, practice until you can perfect the stage portion. It's not that hard, either. You'll need those lives and bombs.
As for Lunatic Impact, just try to time the moons' impact so they move at the same time. You won't want the three of them walling you at different times.
Other than that, Hecatia portions are only a bit harder than Suwako.
>>
>>21181387
I don't think that's true since I can clear every other Extra easily and Suwako only gave me trouble with her first survival since I couldn't be arsed to learn a route for it, but Hecatia's nonspells become really hard when she moves too low. The blue kunai one feels like something I'd see on a Hard/Lunatic boss. Oh well, after watching a video I saw that I'm not supposed to try to damage her until the three moons are out so I'll try to focus on syncing them before that happens.

>>21183082
There are levels you need to do before you can challenge bigger ones, and I don't mean stages of the game, but rather your own skills. Take a little break to practice other things, FW, DS, StB are good ways to practice your overall skills like micrododging, streaming, stream change, macrododging, mob control, etc., otherwise you'll never make it for the lack of skills.

Think of it as if you are trying to kill a boss in a game where you damage is not enough to pass over the boss healing skill, you won't make it unless you train before and level up some more.

I have repeated seen people (well, /jp/sies) say that playing the photo games made them worse at the main series. How can that be? The photo games train you dodge with no bombs to resort to.
>>
>>21185572
>The photo games train you dodge
no
>>
>>21185572
>The photo games train you dodge with no bombs to resort to.
Yes and no, a big mechanic of the photo games is using the camera to nullify bullets, so you are incentivized to do dash in>take picture as they fire>dash out which destroys most of the bullets meaning you have to dodge less.
>>
New to the games, how do I get better? Ive been trying to beat TD for a while now, and have stopped making progress past stage 4.
>>
>>21185572
The photo games are puzzle games, ZUN uses them to create special patterns which wouldn't work in a regular game.
>>
>>21185572
>playing the photo games made them worse at the main series
That sounds dumb, I can understand people claiming that photo games won't give you a skill boost for the main games but you just can't get worse like that, either.

they're probably just shitters, but the photogames do play somewhat differently than the main games. Since you're not shooting you have much more freedom to move around rather than just staying below the boss to shoot them and the games encourage riskier play for bigger photos which give more points and charge back.

It is. The only meaningful criteria for comparing game difficulty is perfect survival play and EoSD is significantly harder because of the luck involved on Patchouli and Remilia.
>>
>>21192739
>The only meaningful criteria for comparing game difficulty is perfect survival play
Nah mate, there's 3 ways to judge difficulty scoring, basic clear and NMNB. A basic clear of IN is easier than EoSD for sure, in a NMNB run shit like books and Remilia will fuck up a lot of runs while IN biggest obstacle is Keine and Erin/Kaguya, IN scoring is probably harder though.
>>
>>21192799
>while IN biggest obstacle is Keine and [...]
How much does it change from person to person? Myself I'd say the real killers before stage 6 are Mystia's Moth Dance and the following non, Marisa's random ass third non and Tewi first pattern. Keine's only tough pattern is Ephemerality 137, but now I can capture it very reliably.
I don't know much about survival EoSD though.

>IN scoring is probably harder
This involve doing Kags' last spells unfocused right? Because then I have no trouble believing this.
>>
>>21193517
>How much does it change from person to person?
A lot, some people are better at reading others at following routes there's a japanese wiki that lists the games difficulty but there's a ton left out due to community disagreements.
And now for my retarded opinions on IN, Keine's nons are piss easy but I have trouble being consistent on some of her spells, Ephemerality 137 is just memo the laser's and make a route, Mystia's Moth Dance but I consider Marisa to not be that hard since the hitboxes are just so small unless you get shit RNG which forces you to actually dodge something and not just follow a route but Tewi first non is scary stuff.

I wouldn't have figured out at least half of Kanako's spells without Youtube.
>>
>>21214453
What? Kanako spells were very obvious in my first time. Still, I died to them because my reflexes were shit.
Maybe it's because I played the games in order, not starting with any until I got at least a Hard 1cc on all the previous ones.
>>
>>21214474
I shouldn't say half. I first played MoF months ago before getting any 1cc's in any games, and back then I couldn't figure out any of them. But then I went back and 1cc'd 2-8 and most of her spells seemed obvious. This time around it was just Miyasama Hunting Shrine Ritual and Miracle of Otensui.

>Miyasama Hunting Shrine Ritual
But that one is pretty obvious. Even the first time I attempted normal, through dumb instinctive luck, I cleared it.

UFO or GFW are the hardest normals. SA isn't much worse than MoF if you play ReimuC and abuse her bomb on all of the difficult patterns.

Princess Tenko is a pretty easy spellcard, senpai. When she shoots out her bullets, you just move in a circle to any area between the butterfly bullets. Repeat until she's dead. You DO know that you can sit on her and move through her when she spawns, right? She's got no hittbox for this spellcard iirc.

>>21215115
See >>21215151. If you want a dummies explanation, first you have to grasp the moment to move just before she shotguns you. When you get it, start the card.
>1: sit on the center
>2: before the shot, move N,S,W,E or a mix (in a position so that the ring doesn't hit you)
>3: wait until she comes
>4: go to 2
And that's about it.

I've normal 1cc'd nearly every other game and I can still only get past parsee without bombing roughly 10% of the time. Fuck this godawful garbage heap of a game, fuck having to deal with UFO level patterns with the literal worst bombs and shot types in the entire series, and fuck this stupid ass stage 2 boss that is harder than most stage 3s. I honestly forget that I'm only on the 5th stage whenever I actually get to it because my brain thinks I've just dealt with a whole game's worth of bullshit. I've literally never even gotten to Utsuho without continues, and I must have made nearly 100 attempts by now. FUCK SA.

Parsee is piss easy, she's a gimmick boss and probably the easiest Stage 2 boss. You aren't shooting the clone like a retard, right?

What exactly are you struggling with?
The only Parsee spell I've ever really struggled with is her first one, and that can be beaten through really careful streaming to stop it hitting you before you can sneak through the gaps
Yuugi is the real casual filter for SA
>>
>>21216155
Post a replay. Easier to help you if we see how you're approaching the patterns.

>>21216582
Is this game worth playing for anything other than getting disappointed that there isn't ample fanart of the girls?

Personally its by far my favorite fangame and I like it more than some of the mainline games too, so recommend it. Make sure to get Polished Shooting Star if you do.
>>
It seems there are a lot of new players lately. This warms my soul.
>>
>>21218056
Possibly from the new game and/or older games releasing on steam.
>>
>>21218061
In that case there would be a lot of posts about Clownpiece or dancers.
>>
>>21218211
It could simply be that new game/steam releases pique people's interest in the series and they don't actually start with those games.

so rikako destroys the ai almost as badly as reimu and yumemi do.
pity, since managing her charge is an interesting challenge.
