Touhou Hisoutensoku Rollcaster Official Release

I’m a bit late on the news this time because of RL issues (this is why we need more volunteers to update this blog; contact guuchan if you are interested). Better late than never, though.

Thanks to Fireseal, Touhou Hisoutensoku can now be played with rollback enabled; long story short, intercontinental play with low delay is now possible. All you have to do is download Sokuroll and run it after opening Touhou Hisoutensoku, and you’re done!

As always, the best place to find matches is at #hisouten@irc.rizon.net. Pop in for some intense PvP matches!

SWRSToys Usage Guide

Since nothing interesting is happening in #hisouten, I thought I might as well write up a proper guide for using the modules that come with the SWRSToys download provided on the wiki. (In any case, it should be noted that the SWRSToys bundle linked to includes Google Translated readmes courtesy of sazn, if this article does not suffice.)

The following modules are included with the .rar, although more are available.

To install: Extract the archive to your Touhou Hisoutensoku folder. Make sure your game is patched to 1.10. (If you have Soku+, then you will need to back up your SWRSToys.ini which came with Soku+, since the mod also uses SWRSToys.) Uninstalling simply involves the removal of those files.

SWRSToys.txt:

● INSTALLATION

1.Paste everything in the rar (d3d9.dll, swrsToys.ini, and the Module folder) into your Hisoutensoku folder.
2.Finished.

● UNINSTALL

1.All that shit you pasted in? Delete it.
2.That’s it.

● How to use SWRSToys (people that don’t know, look here)

1. From the Module folder that you placed in your Hisoutensoku folder, select one and remember the name.
2. Open SWRSToys.ini in Notepad
3. Find the name of the mod you want to use, and the corresponding line in the .ini, and delete the [;] from the beginning of the line
4. Read the instructions for that mod in its particular folder very carefully

● When you would like to stop using a particular mod, please replace the [;] at the beginning of the line in SWRSToys.ini

That’s all? Not quite. The help files for the modules themselves are unfortunately either poorly translated or not translated at all, which can prove to be an issue. Thus, the usage instructions for some of the important modules will be covered below:

NotMeidou 2.45

If anyone here paid attention to the Meidou 2 post and the tournament schedule, you will notice that there is no Meidou planned for July. This was originally intended as a free time slot for a midyear tournament, but since certain other players insisted on hosting several tournaments despite there already being the Meidou series, I’ve canceled the plans for the midyear tournament. There will still be a NotMeidou mini-tournament as usual.

NotMeidou 2.45 will be a round robin tournament. Instead of it being a free-for-all RR, however, it’ll be conducted in “rounds” (the bot will tell you who you are going to play next, so don’t worry about it). Games will be best-of-1 sets.

The special twist here (as is always present for the casual NotMeidou meets) is that you cannot use a certain character again if you lose a game with her. (So if you picked Youmu then lost to Bobman’s m4d 360-n0-sc0pe subsun sk1llz, you have to switch to somebody else for the next set).

Lost with your main in an upset? Better brush up on the BnBs for your alts, because you can’t use her again for the rest of the tournament. Of course, no one says that you have to use your main from the outset, although just for the hell of it there’ll be a character lock (which means whoever you send up first, you keep playing with her until she loses, at which point you must switch to somebody else).

Registration will be taken both automatically and manually; PM Nonoriri on IRC or type !register in #hisoutensoku to register yourself.

As a reminder, NotMeidou 2.45 is on July 21, 19:00 UTC for EU, 19:00 EDT for NA.

To register: PM me (Nonoriri/Aristocrat) on Rizon with your region. You can make changes at any time before the tournament starts. The registration will be finalized on tournament day. Registrations are open from now until the tournament starts.

Meidou 2.4 Format Update

My apologies for the late update. Meidou 2.4 will be in the Pairs format with all entries being teams of 2 players. Team members will play best-of-three sets with each team member playing a specified opponent from the other team. For example:

Team 1 has members Alice (A) and Bob (B). Team 2 has members Claire (C) and David (D).

A plays vs. C, and B plays vs. D.

  • Let’s say A wins vs. C and B lost to D.
  • At this point both teams have one win each, so the winners of each match play each other to break the tie (A plays vs. D).

However, if one team wins both of the initial matches (A and B both won), then the team moves on without needing to play the third set.

Registration will be manual instead of automatic; PM Nonoriri on IRC to register your team.

As a reminder, Meidou 2.4 is on June 23, 19:00 EDT for NA. EU was delayed due to Euro 2012.

To register: PM me (Nonoriri/Aristocrat) on Rizon with your region and team preference. You can make changes at any time before the tournament starts. The registration will be finalized on tournament day. Registrations are open from now until the tournament starts.

Meidou 2.3 Postponed

Because of Meidou 2.3 falling on the Diablo 3 launch weekend, I’ve decided to postpone Meidou 2.3 one week. It will now be held on May 26, 2012, at the same hours as originally scheduled.

Enjoy destroying your mice/index fingers, whichever comes first!

P.S. As for why the North American servers kept getting taken down, it may or may not be because of this.

Meidou 2.3 Format Update

After asking players for alternative tournament formats, the overall preference seems to be overwhelmingly in favor of a 50/50 teams tournament. Thus, Meidou 2.2 will be in the Teams format with all entrants split into two big teams. Team members will play best-of-one sets, first team to wipe out all other members wins. Every team member has two “lives”, or two chances to be sent up to play, except the team captains, who have one life each.

Registration will be manual instead of automatic; the NA team captains will likely be the two streamers, Muii and Duckator. EU will need two volunteers as team leaders.

As a reminder, Meidou 2.3 is on May 19, 19:00 UTC for EU, 19:00 EDT for NA.

To register: PM me (Nonoriri/Aristocrat) on Rizon with your region and team preference. You can make changes at any time before the tournament starts. The registration will be finalized on tournament day. Registrations are open from now until the tournament starts.
