In a first for the Touhou series, Scarlet Weather Rhapsody supports netplay without needing to use any third-party programs or modifications. Simply hit the "vs Network" option in the menu.

The Vs Network screen[edit]

Scarlet Weather Rhapsody vs Network screen
  • Host a match

Will ask you to choose a port number, then asks you whether you want spectators to be allowed in the match or not, then will wait for someone to join.

  • Connect to a host

Use the up, down, left and right buttons to input an IP address and port number to connect to.

  • Show saved IP

This gets a list of IPs from the "address.txt" file in the Scarlet Weather Rhapsody game directory. To add IPs to this file, make sure each one is a valid IP:Port combination, and on a separate line. Use the Up and Down buttons to choose between IP addresses to join.

  • Show IP history

Brings up a list of previously connected to servers, use Up and Down to choose between them.

  • Connect to a copied IP from clipboard

This option checks if you have an IP:Port address on the clipboard (i.e: that you have copied in text), and if so, will connect to that address.

  • Select profile

Choose which profile you wish to use in netplay.

Issues[edit]

Scarlet Weather Rhapsody defaults to using UDP port 10800, so people wanting to host games may find it useful to forward that port on their modems.

Hamachi[edit]

Hamachi is a handy tool lets you connect two computers via the internet by creating your own virtual private network (VPN).

After you downloaded Hamachi you have to make your own network and find people to join in. At the netplay screen choose a port an insert the IP on Hamachi from your opponent.
