  • Wine CD with thcrap and vpatch version last published 1 year, 3 months ago
    Original game installer with vsync and localization patches
    Tested with moriyashrine's iso.
    Requires original Touhou installer! Patched one won't work!
    Tip: You can mount iso files with fuseiso or CDEmu(not tested).
    Enable 'ja_JP.UTF-8' and 'en_US.UTF-8' locales on your system (
    If you think the installer shows too much 'Ok' popups, don't worry, it works as intended.
    (Unless it shows you the message box with 'warning' icon)
    During installation, the 'thcrap' game patcher will be launched for localization support.
    See for instructions (video is slightly outdated, however the process hadn't changed so much)
    I recommend choosing 'lang_%your language%', 'EoSD_Retexture_Hitbox' and 'alphes' (in same order) patches for beginners.
    (swap 'Retexture' and 'lang' if you want translated menus in cost of some graphic glitches)
    If it asks to choose game location, just press 'Keep this list and continue'.
    If it prompts to create shortcuts, press 'Yes'.
    Then the EoSD configurator will show up. It's highly recommended to check 'Enforce 60 FPS' and '32bit colors' option."

Touhou 6: Embodiment of Scarlet Devil (or shortly EoSD) is the 6th installment of the Touhou franchise, being the first launch on the Windows platform, launched in 2002. Touhou 6 maintains the Vertical Scrolling Danmaku genre like it's predecessor games.

The game takes place in the mystic oriental land of Gensokyo, as usual. The story revolves around the appearance of a thick red mist, that has covered the land and blocked out the sun. Playing as either Reimu Hakurei (a shrine maiden) or Marisa Kirisame (a playful magician), you must battle your way through 6 difficult stages toward the source of the red mist, and face the "Scarlet Devil" behind it all.

In Touhou 6, to reach Point of Collection (POC), you must have Maximum Power. Touhou 6 is also known as the only Windows game in the franchise in which you can't see your hitbox while holding Shift.
