This article holds info about existing tools to extract or modify the data of the Touhou games.

All of the tools are built for Windows only, however some have source code included and therefore it might be possible to get them to work on other platforms.

If your computer has trouble recognizing Japanese words related to Touhou, see the Input Method Dictionary.

For more information on the inner workings of the games, see the Technical Information pages.

Features

Players[edit]

  • thplay - 東方蓄音機 (Touhou Gramophone) (Japanese)
  • bgmforall - BGM For All Version 1.1 By 野风信子 (Chinese)

Title files[edit]

There is a common format for files that store information about BGM names and their positions in thbgm.dat files. The usual naming convention is titles_thXX.txt. Note that older versions of software may not fully support TH13 title files due to the reduced sample rate for spirit world versions.

Here are some sources of these files:

  • 東方シリーズ用ツール has th06, th07, th07.5, th08, th09, th09.5, th10, th11, th12, th125, th128, th13, th11 trial, th12 trial and th13 trial. (Some of those may have incorrect looping offsets)
  • 東方シリーズ曲入れ替えツール has an alternative list for individual wav bgm files, extracted from data file using a ripping tool (th06 to th10).
