Let's try some challenges to liven up the thread

-

New challenges for this thread:

Scoring challenge: DDC scoring on Normal/Hard
1. With MarisaB
2. The run must be done within the thread, no old scores.
3. Either screenshots or replays will be required.

Survival challenge: DDC no vertical on Normal/Hard/Lunatic
1. Survive as long as you can without using vertical movement.
2. Every shot-type is welcome
3. The run must be done within the thread, no old scores.
4. Either screenshots or replays will be required.
5. Whoever gets the farthest wins, tiebreaker will be the amount of lives left.

So, practice mode in EoSD is basically useless due to rank? Everything seems much more difficult in runs, and when watching replays, I notice some very different early game differences. If I score well enough on Stage 1 and 2, Cirno will shoot out a constant volley of yellow bullets during icicle fall, something that never happens in practice. Not a big deal, but it's one of the many things I've noticed.

I'm not sure how the rank system works, but I really wanted to use EoSD to ease myself into Touhou again. However, it feels like a big waste of time if my practice runs aren't going to match up with my full runs.

>> No.11342998

>>11342974
What? I thought rank resets after every stage, so it shouldn't matter if it's stage practice or not.

>> No.11343045

>>11342998
Does it? I thought I read something about it resetting back down to 16 after finishing the stage, but also starting at 0 at the start of the game. It could be that I just play better in full runs, which increases the rank more than when I do practice runs.

I'm not even sure how to increase it aside from just time staying alive. It seems like the more point items and graze I obtain, the harder it gets. The quick volley during icicle fall seems to occur most often if I've milked Cirno to her fullest, but I've done that in practice too without her getting pissed off. Maybe I'm just doing something wrong.

DDP still hasn't made me taught me much of anything, maybe because I never get to see the bosses beyond Stage 1-3 since I always restart after dropping my chain.

I think I learned more playing DOJ, mostly because I was oblivious to the chains and just fucking played.

>>11346140
Autofire in PoFV would just mess up your chain constantly. If both players have exceptional dodging skills, and are the types to last 5+ minutes each round, needing good chaining skills is almost essential to winning. This is, at the peak competitive level of course.

C is the regular shot button for GFW.
>>11346112
Some spellcards are designed to force you to hold your fire. Same goes for some systems like DDC, where you want to delay some kills to get 2.0 bonuses. Not shooting is also important for scoring. You probably can find a way to toggle the shot button some other way if you don't care about those things.
>>11346292
Just have to change how you look at the pattern (or watch the pattern at high-speeds). On Lunatic, they're simply diagonal streams of bullets that eventually cross each other. If you can make out the V-shaped part of the pattern, all you have to do is switch to that lane as it appears. Switch lanes whenever you see the same pattern open up to the left or right (probably best to stick around in the center though).
>>11346311
I'd say you're right. Holding your fire to chain a bunch of fairies also clears up a lot of bullets. Autofire in PoFV would only make the game more difficult.

I played the photo games right after clearing Normal, and they helped a lot. Not sure what good that would do if you clear Lunatic already though. However, you are on the right track if you're looking into scoring. From my experience the only thing that improved my play (after getting all Lunatic 1ccs) was exactly that, and not even on the same difficulty level. Scoring forces you to play out of your comfort zone, and get used to it too. At the end of the day, aren't those annoying conditions (unfocused movement, dodging patterns from a different perspective, better collection, etc.) the things you have to improve upon?

Not abusing bombs is the only thing keeping you from your 1cc in SA though, honestly.

Ketsui, Garegga, Hotdog Storm, DoDonPachi, Gradius III, Raiden Fighters(all), EoSD(L)

This is how I learned my shmup fundies, how I became a better player. I obviously focused on one at a time, but each of these games taught me a little more about the genre. I learned more about myself as I played these games, it was like I was evolving into a different person, a path of enlightenment through shmupping. At first, they were petty games that I would waste time with, but eventually, I came to love the shmup genre.

I began to wake up earlier just so I could play shmups before everybody else was awake. It was a feeling like none other, waking up at 4AM just to practice them, nothing except myself and the crickets outside. Getting a full cup of coffee at 5AM and beginning my daily routine of grinding stages and pumping out runs, it kind of became a routine after a couple of months.

I think it only depends on how much of your shot is hitting the enemy, and not the distance between your shot and the enemy.
Most of the time though, the shots in EoSD are spread, so point blanking will mean that more of your shot hits the enemy (shotgunning).

>> No.11349506

Shooting at point blank will always do more damage.

It's not wrong. Name one game where it doesn't apply (except the photo games of course).
It's simply logical that the shorter the distance bullets need to travel to hit the enemy, the faster their hp will go down.

You're shooting the same amount of bullets faster than you would shoot them if you were sitting at the bottom of the screen. You aren't doing more damage per bullet, but you're doing the total amount of damage you need to do over a faster period of time so you're doing more damage per second.

DDC stage 2 spellcard 3 ran with a mod to completely remove all enemy projectiles (I picked this boss/spellcard because she never moves the whole time) so I don't have to dodge at any point with ReimuB.

14.08s standing at the bottom of the screen.
14.08s standing at the middle of the screen.
14.08s pointblank

I repeated every test 3 times each and they always came up with 14.08.

MarisaA however is
14.43 bottom
13.26 midscreen
10.20 pointblank

(also tested 3x each, though I had to average them out this time as they were never exact, but the difference was always in milliseconds)
I have no real explanation for this.

I should mention that all of those are focused, obviously.

So the conclusion is that travel time is irrelevant. You can't make a sweeping generalization and say being closer is always more damage, however some shots do deal significantly more damage up close.

Good point, I suppose playing in small bites instead of marathons is more suited to me then.

Another question: I've recently started to do no bomb-no death runs (I've never tried scoring before and wouldn't know a good place to start). My practice style has always been to grind grind grind the same level until I beat it after 100-200 tries (while watching a youtube vid or my own replays every dozen attempts or so).

Is this really the proper way to practice and get better at the series in general? Progress feels painfully slow when I'm banging my head against the same level for 8 hours, then I get to the next level no-bomb run, another 7 or so hours for something that doesn't look much more difficult than the last level I did.

Hope you don't mind random UFOs summoned during the stage. The first few were for extra power, then couldn't be assed to die on the stage. You did say NMNB, not NMNBNUFO. ReimuA is probably the best candidate, so she is used in the replay.

- King Kraken Strike is a difficult spellcard. Got lucky and managed to stay under her to end the spellcard quickly, that's all. Not much you can do to get better at it except grind it with SpoilerAL. Hard to get used to making big horizontal movements to dodge it if you get bad RNG.
- Second spellcard is her easiest, if you know where the fists are coming from. Only one or two bullets get in the way of making vertical movement to escape the fist at the bottom of the screen.
- Lasers are mean, so third spellcard should be rated as more difficult than the 2nd. Read lasers and misdirect the fists. Can get pretty bad with low power, like in your replay. Loads better than having to face KKS at low power though.

Hi, thanks for the reply. I appreciate the spellcard tips. Unfortunately I'm unable to download the replay, their server might be down right now.

I often die from the two blue waves on the level (unless I'm sanae A) as well as the 5 waves of 2 star shooters immediately after the midboss.

I actually meant NBND+nUFO but it slipped my mind.

Kraken Strike is just stumping me. Even if I ignore the boss entirely and just try to dodge, I still die by the 3rd wave of punches or so. Never heard of SpoilerAL

The second spellcard kills me just as much. I almost always ram into a bullet on the way up when I go unfocused.

Third spellcard is easiest for me.

I suppose I'll just keep grinding with laser reimu, but It was looking pretty hopeless last night.

>> No.11361482

>>11361463
Are you working on a LNBNUFO or something? At any rate, the post-midboss section just comes down to killing one of the fairies before it gets to shoot. If it does, look at the whole screen to find the gaps before they close. Stronger shottype is better for this of course. For the blue kedama waves, I'd try to kill as much as possible then hug the left or right corner. For the second blue wave however, it's recommended that you stay on the left side to not get caught by the fairy spawns afterwards.

I'll try to upload a replay again without UFO summons, but I'll probably not care if I die to KKS on it.

Thanks for the replay. I think I'm nowhere near the skill level required to do this. I've NEVER had a single run with Reimu A where I haven't died to the stage before getting to the boss. I've just now died over 10 times to the blue waves & few times to the star fairies again. I think if I want to beat this in 2013 I need to use a different shottype or come back later.

Killing more of the blue enemies means less bullets being shot. The big orbs shot when the enemies die are aimed at you as you may already know, so it's not an issue as long as you leave some room near the wall to retreat to.

Post-midboss fairies can be almost static since they spawn at the same location dependent on your own location. Speedkill them and you won't have to dodge all that much stuff. You're probably having trouble with this because you expect Sanae's snake shots to eventually take care of them. Homing in UFO doesn't make the stages much easier if you ask me. Knowing enemy spawns and gunning them down fast with a straightforward power shot makes things quite simple!

By "beating the game," what do you mean? For a 1cc all you need is a decent UFO route then bomb the difficult parts. Even without bombs, a proper route yields 20 lives so NMNB'ing Stage 3 isn't necessary.

SpoilerAL is a tool that lets you modify the game to grind games without spell practice, for the record.

>I refuse to believe that some people are just innately ``better''
They are, though. Look at athletics; people who compete on a national or international level are just born with certain gifts. That doesn't mean they don't work hard to get where they are, but it does mean that some people really are just "better."

Video games are the same way. You have to accept that some people just have naturally more agile fingers, or a faster visual cortex, better color vision, or any other combination of factors that make them better at shmups.

That doesn't mean you stop playing them, of course. Unlike most sports, video game communities won't look down on you if you use a performance enhancer like caffeine or meth.

>> No.11361645

>>11361625
It was just a NBND challenge just for that one stage. I enjoy doing those more than 1cc attempts, since 1ccs take so long per attempt whilst a single stage nbnd is more impressive to me.

I'll remember your tips in the future and I'll be checking out Spoiler AL.

I use Reimu focused shot for all of my runs except now because I became lost and desperate. After an agonizing number of attempts I'm throwing in the towel for this one, I'll go try to NBNDNUFO stage 2 instead. My raw dodging is NOT up to par at all for this challenge, I'm dying like 5+ times a run after what, 140 attempts? I can only handle so much defeat with so little progress.

15 hours of DOJ is no joke. He fucks up Ketsui pretty hard too, he maybe plays about ten credits every six months and each time I've seen him play, he's balls deep in the omote loop.

I've mostly ignored DOJ and Ketsui because I'm petrified that it'll take months to 1cc them opposed to the average of a couple of days. On the one credit of Ketsui I've played a year ago, I died on 1-2 twice and never played again.
