Touhou Contests!

Competitive Play Begins the 19th and Ends when it Ends!

Score Contest begins the 4th! It's Month-long! Please wait for the Interest Thread!


Norondor and I will debug the arcane science of making Phantasmagoria of Flower View netplay work.

Otherwise we will vote for a Touhou game and difficulty to aim for highest scores on.

They're free and good!

How to netplay PoFV:

1) Patch up to 1.50a.  The patch is right here if you need it.
2) Get the English patch.  It's right here and comes with a readme, which is pretty useful.  Make sure you install adonis when it asks you.
3) Open PoFV and set player 2's key config to "Full."  This is very important.
4) If you want, you can open adonis_config.ini and set a name for yourself.
5) Run adonise.exe.  If you want to host, choose s.  If you're connecting to the other dude, choose c.  The host gets to pick a port to play through; make sure that port is open on both sides.  If you're the client, enter the host's IP and port and it should connect you.
6) The host'll have to pick a lag adjustment setting.  adonis_readme.txt has a list of recommended lag setting for each level of ping, but I'm pretty sure it'll auto-recommend the best one for you when a connection is made.  After the host selects that, the game should start up and you should be able to pick a difficulty level, character, and background track. 

Protip: Run adonise.exe in the command prompt if you're having issues.  If you fail to connect for whatever reason, it'll spit out an error message.  If you run the program on its own it'll close before you can read it, but if you've run it from the command prompt the prompt will stay open afterward.

Coupla questions:

1) How's the PoFV tournament going to work?  Round-robin or bracket-style?  Should we do signups?  If so, should we be selecting our characters now or leaving it to the whims of the moment?
2) How's the score competition being judged?  I assume the score has to be gotten after the competition had started, but what about LPs?  I might try my hand at it; can I use a replay I've recorded months ago if I make the LP now?  I'll probably be doing a new run anyways, but I figured I'd ask. 
3) Is anyone entering this other than me D:

Bump for Let's PoFV each other.

Thank you for detailed instructions VGameT, let us do a Round Robin style I suppose, it seems to be easy to have people seek out and battle each other ala Pokemon Trainers that wear Shorts.

Well I'll throw my hat in I guess.  I'm on IRC as VgameT and on AIM as The VgameT so let me know if you want to have a match.

Sure why not. The entire theme of the Worstlympics is "if anyone feels like it"

man I hate SA
fortunately nobody appears to have entered either part of this competition so I guess I can just post a bad score on the 31st and claim double victory
