>>649746Went dumpster diving recently and found some nice goodies for all soku enthusiasts:>SWRSokuRollNew version of SokuRoll. Compatible with the old version, but it's still recommended to install it. No it doesn't improve the netcode any further, but it adds a lot of QoL changes. It adds ping display, lets you change the Delay in the Character Select Screen, and it also automatically sets optimal values for delay/rollback frames, so us retards who forget to press + or - during a match don't have to worry about that anymore. It also allows you to manually change the rollback value now but I still don't know how that works.>DesyncProtectorSelf-explanatory, fixes all desyncs caused by weather. Both players need to have the module installed for it to take effect in a match, so it's probably for the best if as many people as possible have this installed as well. It also fixes desyncs for spectators and desyncs in new replays.>DSoundFixFixes DSound related crashes, for example when you plug or unplug headphones or another audio device.>ControlPnPAllows you to connect controllers without having to restart the game.>WindowResizerFixes the game's broken implementation of fullscreen mode, and many other issues related to it. Also lets you freely resize windows and a bunch of other stuff. Replaces the old WindowResizer module, and any other modules that modify the game's fullscreen mode for that matter.>PracticeExImplements a real Training Mode for all your autistic practice needs. It lets you record macros, make the dummy react with certain options, and pretty much everything you would expect from a normal fighting game training mode in 2022.Download link: https://files.catbox.moe/opbyoa.zipAll of these are installed just like any other SWRSToys modules: Drag the folder into Modules and add the .dll address to SWRSToys.ini. Or just drag the new .dll into the old folder if you already had a previous version installed.
Anyone wanna soku(You) me for host
>>650740I can play if you are still around.
aw shit, that OP is ancientcan host some soku soonMM2 and AoE3 when
>>650873Last time I tried hosting MM2 the connection was pretty shit and we ended up playing at a silky smooth ~40fps. Don't know how that would work with other anons from different regions, especially if it's with more than 2 people.I'd still do it again some time soon though
>>649746>Yumemi OP>mfw OP has literally best taste on /vm/I fucking KNEEL
>>649758based, thanks anon
>>650740Up for a few games again
Anyone wanna play?22.214.171.124:10800Sokuroll+autopunch
>>653983GG's Az, I can never remember what suwako does, and the AI loves to chose her for me in random.
>>654107Ggs, ty for the host>I can never remember what suwako doesSpam trees to your heart's content, follow up literally every single hit with 6B > 6C. Congrats, you are now a proficient Suwako player
>>654109No, that I remember, what I forget are the actual buttons, I'm sitting there all like, which one was the tree again?
>>656643I can play if you are still around
>>656689Ggs, something came up so i'll have to cut it short this time
>>649746Do not trust these links. Anti-virus says they're full of trojans that will install Touhou Hisoutensoku on your computer
>>649758Do you know about any fix for the SOKU2 runtime crash?I installed the latest beta and the game just crashes going into the new characters on the char select screen
>>657459You know too much.
>>657485SOKU2 should include its own fix. I tried installing all those modules and it seems to work just fine. It does say it may not be compatible with SokuEngine or ReDelay so maybe you have one of those enabled. Do you get any error message when it crashes? It's probably gonna be easier to tell what's going wrong if you post that or a screencap of your SWRSToys.ini.
>>657459You WILL join the soku botnetAnd you will like it
>>657583ill join the botnet just let remi go
>>657538I'm surprised you have it working just fine; I have both SokuEngine and ReDelay disabled, and the normal soku without the SOKU2 stuff enabled works with no issues (and even SOKU2 with just the non-SOKU2 characters also works with no issues), so I dont know what could be wrong other than the newest beta (SOKU2 BETA 6-20-2022 V2) just flat out not working rightThe error message doesn't say much by the way, it basically just says without any details:>Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library>Runtime Error!>This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way.>Please contact the application's support team for more information.Also as a side-note, I've been getting a "Failed loading modules/InGameHostlist/InGameHostlist.dll: file does not exist" lately out of nowhere, and the lobby hasn't been workingIs this happening to everyone? Does it just mean the lobby server is temporarily down and the dll will magically reappear eventually?
Kind of old news but i recently got to personally verify that PoFV/adonis2 does in fact work with proxypunch for people that can't portforward like me, so that's neat. Just remembered that someone asked a long while back and i don't think there was ever an actual answerSpeaking of which, i can host soku/IaMP/PoFV or whatever else in about 30 mins so if anyone's up just reply with a game to host
>>658864Try disabling the discord thing first. If that doesn't work either then you might wanna disable everything else and then enable it gradually until you find the culprit.>Also as a side-note, I've been getting a "Failed loading modules/InGameHostlist/InGameHostlist.dll: file does not exist" lately out of nowhere, and the lobby hasn't been workingSome antivirus flag it as malware, probably because it connects you to a third party server where all the information is hosted. You should add the game's directory as an exclusion zone in your antivirus/Wangblows Defender and then reinstall the module (https://github.com/SokuDev/InGameHostlist/releases/tag/v1.3) to make sure nothing else messes with it. So yes, >>657459 was right on the money all along.
>>663616the moment komachi got mastersparked with 5 cards on hand I knew exactly where this was going.
>>659202Up for games again
>>664137I can play
>>664141I'll assume that means any gameHosting soku anyways 126.96.36.199:10800
>>659586I'm sorry for the late reply to this, your advice worked on both counts! Thank you very muchI don't know if this is the latest version of InGamHostlist since this one isn't letting me see the "Playing" list while hosting unlike whichever version I had, but I'm sticking with this one as long as it worksAlso, if anyone wants to know an incredibly silly and impractical but cool looking 3751 damage sekibanki corner combo I just labbed out in practice mode, here you are:>corner, sekibanki on okuu (and probably any other tall enough character), level 0 d214, head floating close enough to your body and not too forward, probably needs either practice mode infinite orbs or magic potion>j5a 5aaa 5b 5c hjc7 D6 j5a 5aaa 5b d214 d214 (2nd hit of 5b) 5aaa 5b d214 d214 (2nd hit of 5b) 5aaaaThere's also a non-d214 version that does *3920* damage, but much more precise and I've only been able to get it to work once:>simply 5aaa 5b 5c 44 66 5aaa 5b 5c 44 66 5aaa 5b 5c 44 66 5aaaaI would upload webms if I remembered how to record my screen and edit webms, but it's been too long since I've done anything like that
>>659202Got some time for more games now, (You) me for host>>665049>if I remembered how to record my screen and edit webmsJust use OBS + webmconverter, basic recording on OBS usually doesn't require THAT much setup
soku? I can't host
>>668433Late but can't sleep so guess i can play for a bit if you are still here
>>668538188.8.131.52:10800Host up for a few games then
>>668545GGs, when did you get so good with all characters? damn now winning feels even more impossible. but now that I'm no longer unrangeabnned I guess ill play with fellow beginners here (if any)
>>668556Ggs, long time no seePlaying often helps, that said you didn't feel too rusty so you are probably gonna do fine after a few more games
>>668559>didn't feel too rustybecause I played like 30 games against some rando before this, I lost all of them
>>668561Well that just means one thing, gotta play even more to learn from it
Soku? same as >>668433
>>668942I can host now if you still wanna playSame as >>668545 too
>>668971GGs these matches were better but I still hate pic relatedAlso something I don't understand is why I can get hit while jumping and blocking with non anti-air moves?
>>669011Ggs, thanks for playing. I see you got some more complex combos and blockstrings going, at least every so often. Just a bit of extra damage can go a long wayAlso just out of curiosity, can you not host even with autopunch? I know of at least one other anon that is also learning the game but can't host at all. If you can host then you'll probably get a few more people to play as well>why I can get hit while jumping and blocking with non anti-air moves?Every character is completely defenseless during the first few (i think 5?) frames of their jump, regardless of whether a move hits air unblockable or not. If you are just holding up back during random hits you WILL get swatted out of the air before you can even block>but I still hate pic relatedYou can actually rob entire rounds by getting the most bullshit crossups with that thing. She unironically needs it though
>>669020>Also just out of curiosity, can you not host even with autopunch? I know of at least one other anon that is also learning the game but can't host at all. If you can host then you'll probably get a few more people to play as wellWell because my ISP gave me an IP with NAT hosting normally is impossible and autopunch works sometimes, but if there's another anon with the same issue as me I'll try hosting and see what happens>Every character is completely defenseless during the first few (i think 5?) frames of their jump, regardless of whether a move hits air unblockable or not. If you are just holding up back during random hits you WILL get swatted out of the air before you can even blockgotcha
time for games
Got time to host games again for about a couple hours, soku/IaMP/etcJust reply for host
>>670464Sorry for the delay, soku host is now up184.108.40.206:10800
>>670475>220.127.116.11:10800give me a min, some mail came in
>>670491Alright no problem, host will still be up so just join when ready
>>670475>>670491GGs Suwako is a demon, but I can't hate her>that typhoon at the end
>>670574Ggs, very nice that the connection got much better after some time. And yeah, playing around tree spam is obnoxious for me too, but it's fun when you are not on the receiving end>tfw just sitting there blocking happily while looking at the timer
>>663616fug that's mee :DDD
I want game
>>673946me me me
>>674049I'm assuming that means soku, so host up18.104.22.168:10800
>>674056let me try to fix my network
>>674061Yeah i'm not really sure that's working out
>>674056>>674061GGs sorry for the network, I don't really know why is like this, there are no other devices in the house rn using internet
>>674068>>674075I just did a ping test and there are some lag spikes but not as often as in game, weird
>>674075>>674082GgsYeah maybe there's just some network congestion going on or something, last time it was more manageable but now we are getting 400+ms ping spikes all the time so that's probably not gonna work. We can try again later, i don't have much else to do for the rest of the day so just (You) me in a few hours or somethingOn the meanwhile >>670450 is still up to play whatever
>>674084>>674085wanna try again?
>>674242Sure but give me ~20 minutes, i'll post the address once i'm done
>>674266And it's up now22.214.171.124:10800
>>674273yeah it's still badwhy dont you try playing with someone else? Ill do the same and see if it is my network
>>674287Well that didn't get much betterGuess it's just not happening today, ggs>why dont you try playing with someone else?Was playing other stuff earlier, the connection was pretty stable. Unless it's a soku-specific issue but that'd be even more strange. I can give it a try at least
Any beginners want to play?
>>674524network has been shit lately
Anyone wanna play for a short while
>>675898meI think my network got better, played some matches today with no issue
>>675992Sorry, i started playing something else and it's already getting lateI'll probably host tomorrow around the same time or earlier
>>676017not the same anon but i'm on right now i'll just have to get sokuroll working
>>676053sure, can you host?
>>676078sorry for the late reply but sure, I'm also new so don't be surprised if you steamroll
>>676144192. 168. 000. 001. 10800
>>676146I think I messed something up hold on
>>676147ah, nevermind it should work I didn't check the title lmao
>>676146>>676155Anon-sama, that's an internal IP. No one outside your home can connect to it. Try googling "what is my IP" and copying what you find there. Also, you should format your IP like >>674273 to make it easier to paste into the game.
>>676164fug :DDD thanks for the tip anon
>>676164does this one work?126.96.36.199:10800
>>676166Not at all, no. Did you forward your ports properly? Are you using autopunch? If you go to http://netplay.lunarcast.net/check.phpand press Check Server, can it see you hosting?
>>676170I don't really know how to format the IP for the game i'm kind of a retard when it comes to this
>>676171Not >>676170 but if you haven't portforwarded then you need to use autopunch to host, and lunarcast still won't be able to tell if you are hosting or not. If you don't wanna mess with router settings then just use autopunch, you can find it in the OP. There's also a version of the game that comes with it preinstalled and preloaded, but the link in the OP is already dead for some reason
>>676173I don't know how portforwarding is but I'm gonna look it up right now to try and figure it out
>>676174Actually i think i got it, try downloading the game from here instead: https://mega.nz/file/0hgCma6I#zLYPYi4BtpZ_N_Hpp42VKugY5R9fMLuhao5rDcayVxMWith that you shouldn't have to worry about portforwarding, although it's always better to just port forward if you can. That download also has a bunch of quality of life mods too so it's probably worth it
>>676176nice, thanks anon
>>676176yeah I've been having a lot of fun on the single player story but I'd like to try the multiplayer like for ballisticng
>>676176I don't exactly know how to get autopunch working so i'm trying to open my ports, should I choose a specific port or all ports?
>>676189I got autopunch downloaded, i guess i didn't have the .exe
>>676189If you downloaded from the link i posted then autopunch is automatically loaded, you don't have to do anything>should I choose a specific port or all ports?Soku uses port UDP 10800 by default, but really you can change it to whatever as long as you remember it. Only open ports you need though
>>676198alright, thanks anon, I couldn't find the .exe and assumed it wasn't all downloaded so I went and re downloaded it from op's link, I haven't tried opening all the ports because of security worry but I think I was opening the TDP instead of the UDP.
>>676198by the way is it an inbound or outbound rule? or both?
>>676198I'm having some trouble figuring it out, I think i'll go to bed and try again tomorrow, hope you all have a good night
>>676202Well that should be set for both, but are you messing with windows firewall settings or are those your router settings? Regardless, as i said you don't have to portforward if you are using autopunch so do that whenever you got time, if you wanna play it's not completely necessary nowBut sure just ask whenever you wanna give it another try
>>676208so I used autopunch but I can't host, it says either to make sure my ports are open or to use autopunch >= 0.04
>>676209You are not running the autopunch .exe, are you? As i said the version i posted loads autopunch automatically so you shouldn't have to load it again, if you are doing that then it may be messing with the preloaded version
>>676210I used the preloaded version at first and it didn't work so that's why I downloaded it again.
>>676211Did you get the same error when just using the preloaded autopunch? If so then there might be some other issue, we can check if you can join an autopunch host to see if at least that's but otherwise you might have to portforward
>>676213alright let's check if I can join one
>>676217so I can join but I can't host for whatever reason.
>>676218that means I have to portforward right?
>>676219Sorry my controls are extremely fucked up but at least it's good to know that it works. Seems like autopunch is getting loaded correctly though so if you can't host you'll probably have to portforward, yes
>>676220alright thanks for all the help man, I'll probably try and figure out portforwarding tomorrow, for now good night anon ggs.
>>676221Ggs anon, hopefully that works
I want to play
>>676512GGs, the demon alice is back
>>676525ggs man, I'm too sleepy for turn based soku
Anyone up for games now
>>676659GgsEach time we've played the matches have been getting progressively harder, that's some pretty good improvement in just a few days
>>676666only at the beginning Satan, then it's curb stomping left and right
>>676671True the first games were even closer, but at least that should tell you are definitely able to keep up now. As long as you can avoid getting tired or getting tilted when something goes wrong or when you get hit by the dumb gimmicky bullshit you'll probably be able to keep doing that well for longer
>>676223It worked! my test host showed up!
>>676783Good to hear that anon, with that you are able to host soku for anyone and now you can even host pretty much any other multiplayer 2hu game you wanna play without depending on other tools
>>676783semi beginner here, wanna give it a go?
>>676896sure anon, just let me get it together
>>676896I don't know where the ip folder is on this one but if you have autopunch the server says for anon in the message
>>676902I'm pretty sure your IP:Port should get copied to clipboard automatically when you start hosting so try that and then just paste it. And if it somehow doesn't work then you can just get the IP:Port from lunarcastIf it does work then I suggest disabling Post to bot in pic related, otherwise your host is public for everyone to join and sometimes you can't prevent some random retard from joining in even if you say you are waiting for someone else
>>676906huh I can't find it on lunarcast and the version I got from the other anon didn't have an address clipboard, but another guy joined my last one so I don't know exactly what's happening.
>>676906the address would probably be 188.8.131.52:10800
>>676916Yeah that's the address you want, if so then just post that and disable the option I posted above so randoms don't just join in while you are waiting for anon
>>676920alright just glad it works
>>676896184.108.40.206:10800here it is, I don't know if you're doing something else or not but i'm just waiting for you
>>649746game crashed mid match fug
>>676977wanna go again?
>>676979sure it's a little wonky to get it working but i'll get it up, should be the same adr
>>676979i'm gonna get up for a sec so if you join and i'm not doing anything that's why
>>676979it's up, should be 220.127.116.11:10800
>>676996hmm let me try it again
>>676996is yours vm?
>>676997question, do you see the lobby in game with my name?
>>676999I saw it yeah was it the one with vm as the message?
>>676999nice digits anon, ggs
>>677000yesGGs man, is this the first fighting game you've played?A couple of advices1- you need to block on wakeup (this is when you get down after a big blow and get up) if you dont do this someone may keep damaging you, just hold the opposite key to where the enemy is to block2- watch thishttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9xlKyKLVFZI3- if you liked a character go to this page and find their moves https://hisouten.koumakan.jp/w/index.php/Touhou_Hisoutensoku_Wiki, 4- for the thing above they say something like 6AA or something, this are the inputs (the numbers mean your movement keys, 5 is neutral, 6 is foward, 4 is back, 2 is down, 8 is up etc) and A means punch, b means small bullet, and C means big bullet, go to the practice mode and test it out5- if you want to improve you can play arcade mode agaist the machine and win (they play slow and predictable, it's good to get the hang on the game) but to truly improve you need to practice and play against real peoplewhat did you think about the game so far?
>>677013i've played fighting games before, this is just the first one i've played on the pc, so I don't exactly know the controls, plus mine isn't the numpad it's the arrow keys and zx.
>>677013I still enjoy the game a lot it's fun and I never really minded losing in games either
>>677018>plus mine isn't the numpad it's the arrow keys and zx.yeah that's what I mean by your movement keys, the site (and everyone else including here) use numbers instead of arrows to explain combos and things.I believe your Z is melee attack, X your small bullet and C your big bullet
>>677021yeah I figured out which ones they were i'm just getting the basic attacks down before I go into all the combos.
>>677027greatfun fact, I do not know any combos, but you should not follow my example
>>677028I'll try not to lol
>>677669Anon that was like 7 hours agoBut fuck it who needs sleep 18.104.22.168:10800
>>677688GGs these were good matches, Im not as mad as before, I could do something this timealso network problems lol
>>677741Ggs, yeah changing to a drastically different matchup is kinda hard but even then it was pretty good. Too bad i can't say the same about the connection though
>>681483Actually nvm got something to do in a whileMight host later instead
>>681497Back if you still wanna play
>>682980A bit busy now but i can host in about 30 min if you're still here
>>682980>>682989Would like to spectate if you don't mind allowing it.
>>682992Spectators are always welcome, but that depends on whether anon is still here to playHost is up 22.214.171.124:10800
>>683017Also guess i should quote >>682980 too
>>684369Host is up then126.96.36.199:10800
>>684371wont let me
>>684375I'm a bit retarded, please be patientShould be ready now
>>684376let me see if I can fix my network
>>684376>>684383GGs, I don't understand why the networtk is so shitty now but sometimes works as a charm, I even upgraded my home plan
>>684391GgsAt least we can get some decently low ping at times now but the spikes are still huge. Are you on wifi or is your connection from your router to you pc cabled?
>>684394yeah I play on wifi, my ethernet socket is faulty so I can't use it
>>684399If that's the case then you may wanna look into getting a USB-ethernet adapter at least. They are not too expensive and are (almost) as fast as a direct ethernet connection. Definitely more reliable and consistent than wifi too, so if you are able to cable up the connection then that may help a lot. It will also probably be helpful for any other game you wanna play online anyways. And you can always unplug it after you are done, if you wanna go back to wifi for whatever reason
>>684418not the same anon but I'm gonna order one of those now lol
Anyone up for games?Can host mostly anything
>>687074Can't now, i'll probably host tomorrow anyways
>>686884>>687093Back and up for games again

>>687725GG's Az. I have to find a way out of them killer dolls, those and the timestops are the bane of my existance,
>>687814Ggs, somehow i felt like i remembered a lot of things in this one set. For a second there i was about to forget how to play this character Also KD and PS setups (and escaping them) have way too many layers of mixups. There's not really a escape option that can avoid all of that so the next best thing you can do is constantly mix up as many things as you can. Trying to cover all of it on reaction is really hard so i'm bound to fuck it up if i can't consistently guess correctly
