TPW2 patch problem[edit]

Hi mister, have you checked the talk page? We currently have a problem with patch compatibility and construction: the old partial English patch doesn't work with the 1.05 patch from 2013, which adds more characters (Prismriver sisters).

I'd like to ask: do you have any idea of who or what group originally worked on the partial English patch? If not, do you know anybody that might be willing to help me with the programming, minor (and I mean minor) translations, or even just useful information?


Currently, I'm trying to fuse both patches into one. It shouldn't be that hard programming-wise even though I have never had contact with this game's files before, but even if I have success, a minor part - other than the part already left untranslated by the partial English patch - would be in Japanese. I can attempt to identify exactly what strings need translating, and even translate them myself with Google (lol please), but it would be much more helpful both for me and for those who are still interested in the game to have someone who could return simple translations.

Either way, thank you for your time, and sorry to bother.


Naï (talk) 14:03, 11 May 2014 (UTC)

Hello there :), I'd love to help, but unfortunately I know next to nothing about the partial English patches – not even who created these patches. I can't recall who'd want to help, but there're always other users on the wiki who're likely to be a lot more helpful than I am. I hope the project goes well though, and don't worry, you're not bothering anyone. :) Tony64 (Talk/Con.) 16:10, 11 May 2014 (UTC)
I see... thanks for the encouragement. I think nobody was working on the problem mostly because it was unknown though, so it should be okay now that we've at least identified the problem. -- Naï (talk) 16:38, 11 May 2014 (UTC)

PNGs to GIFs[edit]

There is no reason to convert PNGs to GIFs. Please refrain from doing so. Mamizou (talk) 00:00, 21 July 2014 (UTC)

You need to undo all of your edits requesting deletion of PNGs, and request deleting of the GIFs. I'm not going to clean up your mess for you. Mamizou (talk) 00:06, 21 July 2014 (UTC)
Hi there, my reason I did this is because all I thought was to minimise the size of the images by using GIFs wherever possible for less time of download, but if you don't want me to do that, then that's fine. I didn't ask on a talk page or anything whether this was okay to do because I'd expect nobody to reply to such matter due to seeing various talk posts not being responded to, including ones by me, which does frustrate me a bit when something might need fixing. However, I've no trouble in reverting the edits since you've noted me about this early, so I'll get right on it. Tony64 (Talk/Con.) 00:41, 21 July 2014 (UTC)
It's fine, it's just an unnecessary change without any real benefit. PNG can actually reduce some images smaller than GIF anyway. I'd rather stay away from very old formats. Thanks for cleaning it up. Mamizou (talk) 01:05, 21 July 2014 (UTC)
Sorted, and thanks for the heads up by the way. Like many would say, you make mistakes, you learn from them and you move on. But honestly though, if there's anything that I can help with, I'll try my best to contribute as I do like to be helpful at times when it's possible :) Tony64 (Talk/Con.) 01:55, 21 July 2014 (UTC)

erhu girl not being Satsuki Rin[edit]

Sorry for the late, just came back home after a hard week in college. Well, actually the source is form the MoTK forums in the topic 'ZUN and Touhou status update'. Here the user "cuc" which is very reliable and truthful provided the info about a topic in a japanse twitter about an user of this media trying to ask ZUN about the identity of the erhu girl. Basically, the question where if the erhu girl was a character planned to appear in EoSD and ZUN's answer to this question was negative. Well, I'm just assuming but it's pretty obvious that the character "planned to appear in EoSD" was Rin. I think with such info it should be clear what to do, but it's just my opinion. Thanks ;).

Marisa Kirisame page edits[edit]

Thanks for pointing out those guidelines. I'll try to keep within the English variant present in an article as I edit.

I do have a question though. In this excerpt:

  • In PC-98 canon, Marisa is depicted as having red eyes and red hair in Story of Eastern Wonderland, wearing a purple witch's outfit with a white bow on her hat. However, her appearance quickly changes with Phantasmagoria of Dim. Dream, where she has yellow eyes and blonde hair similar to the Windows canon, which stays with her for the rest of the series. There was one instance where she grew black devil-like wings. In Mystic Square, her outfit changes from purple to black, which also stays with her for the rest of the series, and her hat gains faint pink frills.

Is it correct in any variant of English to write "stays" here instead of "stay"? It is referring to something plural: Her yellow eyes and blonde hair. So shouldn't they "stay" with her? - Karob (talk) 00:57, 24 September 2014 (UTC)

No probs :). I try to ensure that spelling and grammar aren't changed in an edit from one variety to another, so it is fair with all English-speaking users that are from different countries who have the right to use their form of English. (I also made the same mistake changing some Americanisms to British before, so I went to do some research and created the guideline months ago so even I can't change spellings and the like.)
Anyway, about 'stays'. From what I know, there's no variety to both 'stay' and 'stays', so they can be used internationally. In this case, it's not a plural that refers to many things (which plurals are normally used in nouns) and I saw it as a verb that means, to this case, "Marisa had kept her appearance the same throughout the series", or simply 'keeps', 'remains' or 'continue with'. I thought it was more natural to use 'stays' because, for example, if you want to keep something, it 'stays' with you. "To this day, Marisa has had blonde hair and yellow eyes since PoDD because it 'stayed' with her," which it another way of stating Marisa's standard appearance. I can't think of a way to use 'stay' in relation to Marisa's appearance, but I can say this example: "Marisa needs to stay with Reimu."
Overall, it makes sense to me to use 'stays' in general English, but if it still doesn't make sense, it can always be re-worded. :) Tony64 (Talk/Con.) 14:27, 24 September 2014 (UTC)
Thanks. :) So, the original sentence is:
  • "However, her appearance quickly changes with Phantasmagoria of Dim. Dream, where she has yellow eyes and blonde hair similar to the Windows canon, which stays with her for the rest of the series."
If "stays" is referring to her appearance, then we can remove the middle clause to get the sentence:
This results in a sentence that is not grammatically correct. If, however, "stays" is referring to her yellow eyes and blonde hair, then we can remove some material to focus on the clause:
  • "She has yellow eyes and blonde hair which stays with her for the rest of the series."
This is also not grammatically correct because "stays" is now referring to a plural (blonde hair and yellow eyes), similar to if we had written:
  • "Marisa has a bronze mushroom and a broken broomstick which stays with her for the rest of the fanfiction.
Do you see how in this case the word "stay" should be used instead of "stays"?
If it still appears to you that "stays" should be used, then the wording probably is easy to perceive multiple ways, and perhaps a rewording is due, such as:
  • "However, her appearance quickly changes with Phantasmagoria of Dim. Dream, where she has yellow eyes and blonde hair similar to the Windows canon. This appearance stays with her for the rest of the series."
That may be a better wording anyway since it avoids any ambiguity. Maybe instead of babbling about the usage of "stay" vs "stays" I should have just suggested that. Grin.
- Karob (talk) 08:55, 25 September 2014 (UTC)
I see. Well, I suppose the latter sentence looks like the most grammatically correct based on what you've stated here. I've changed the sentence in Marisa's page. :) Tony64 (Talk/Con.) 13:35, 26 September 2014 (UTC)
Great, thanks! - Karob (talk) 21:26, 26 September 2014 (UTC)

Project Characters reminder[edit]

You signed up for Touhou Wiki:Project Characters, it would be nice if you please do your work. If you don't want to, edit the page and sign yourself off the list. Thank you! --Choja (talk) 01:29, 20 January 2015 (UTC)

Hi there, I'm not understanding what you're trying to suggest because I happen to try my very best at editing the character pages whenever possible, which links to the contribution of this project. For a starter, forget about the to-do list, don't you know how difficult it can be to keep all character pages up-to-date, organised and correct to the guidelines (especially if alot of it is done by one person)? For e.g. the Seihou character articles are hard to write up about due to the lack of official content; trying to clearly describe a character's ability, personality, relationships, story/gameplay in-game, etc. can also a struggle; and where it says "See if 13.5 sprites for background characters are lying around", it took some good time for me to upload those to the wiki and add them to each article; I could go on.
I mean (just throwing it out there), I don't see you on the list, nor have I ever seen you edit a character page; if you want to fix something, then by all means go for it. You needn't poke the people on the list that appears to not do any work. Yes, I know that the others on the list haven't appeared to have made a contribution to the character pages for a while, but should it be a bother? It sounds like you're poking us because we're slacking on the job; that's never true. Don't forget that everyone who volunteered is because we have an interest. Only because there's a to-do list doesn't mean we must to do the jobs listed; we do them when we want to have a go at tackling them. I don't mean to brag on about this if I am, but I hope that clears it. Cheers :) Tony64 (Talk/Con.) 15:50, 20 January 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for your big help[edit]

Hi there! SakuraMiya/Ximsol182 here! I see that you have started creating character pages for the Len'en characters. I created an account in the Touhou wiki, but for some reason I couldn't create any article, so I decided to create a wiki about Len'en to attract the attention of the fans so they would create the articles here. Now that I logged in again after so long, I see that I can suddenly create articles, so I'll start my job right now and delete the wiki, since its purpose is completed. Thank you for noticing my articles for Len'en.--SakuraMiya (talk) 03:34, 12 February 2015 (UTC)

Can you help me once again?[edit]

From translating the bits I know from the Extra Stage, I realized that Tenkai's actual surname is Zuifon, not Zuifeng. In Kuroji's scenario, Saragimaru says it (like the romanization of Yuyuko's surname, from Saigyouzi to Saigyouji). Can you help me changing the name in all the pages Tenkai is mentioned?

What does "Unlockable Character" mean?[edit]

"Unlockable Character" means a locked character that soon will be unlocked, and later it will be playable. (I'm sure everyone already know this.) It may not say "Playable", but later it will become playable. Or you can say "Unlockable Character (Playable)" if that's okay for you, Tony64. Nintenchris5963 (talk)

Interwiki to :lenen[edit]

Thank you Hibiki :) I've been wanting an interwiki link to the Len'en Wiki for quite a while, so now sorting out Len'en on this wiki ought to be easier. Tony64 (Talk/Con.) 19:42, 29 June 2015 (UTC)

About the alternate outfits from PoFV[edit]

Sorry for bothering but I posted the alternate colors in each character profile like the ones in Phantasmagoria of Dim.Dream, but it's ok in the gallery I guess. I was wondering if the in game art of Reimu, Marisa and Sakuya from EOSD, PCB and MOF can be added to their profiles or their galleries, like this one without link to any page http://en.touhouwiki.net/wiki/File:ReimuPCB.png Sorry for all the work with imagesVirus bass (talk) 14:26, 10 August 2015 (UTC)

Hi :) Yes, I've moved the alternative colours of Th09 images to the galleries because one image is enough to be placed within the official profiles. About those other images from EoSD, PCB and MoF, those too would be best placed under the gallery's section. Oh, and thankyou for uploading so many images that were needed on this wiki, and you're not being a bother :) I like to make sure that all images are categorised, so if you've got any more images to upload, I'll make sure to categorise them. Tony64 (Talk/Con.) 14:41, 10 August 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for all the work, I'm waiting for an answer here http://en.touhouwiki.net/wiki/Talk:Cage_in_Lunatic_Runagate to add images, and here http://en.touhouwiki.net/wiki/Talk:Touhou_Wiki to add sprites and maybe spell card backgrounds, later maybe screenshots from spell cards of FW and hopefully not IAMP, SWR, H and HM, later continue with characters and locations images from mangasVirus bass (talk) 15:18, 10 August 2015 (UTC) If you can take the sprites from the game, could you please add the Reisen sprite from PoFV (with white jacket) as and example for me to add all the other sprites from games and because is one of the few sprites I couldn't found. It's ok to add ending images? I think os one of the few non-alowwed material to take from gamesVirus bass (talk) 17:37, 10 August 2015 (UTC)

I'll get to work with the Reisen sprite. Also, I just think that we ought to bring more ending images. I believe that there is a rule on this wiki that we cover any ending material on this wiki and class is as a spoiler, but once 6 months has passed after the initial full release of the game, the spoiler can be removed. Also, they're images, not the dialogues of the endings. Tony64 (Talk/Con.) 17:46, 10 August 2015 (UTC)

On the Remains of Blazing Hell[edit]

It was more that I was wondering where you read she had sealed the Blazing Fires from the Palace, then you made the small change in wording to be more inline with the actual quote. That changed its meaning to be about how the Palace is the thing sealing the Fires from the rest of the underground instead of the aforementioned, or at least that's how I've been interpreting that whole thing. Either way, I was interested in if you had read something in canon I hadn't and was hoping you did. Thanks for the clarification though. DaegorDude (talk) 11:01, 22 August 2015 (UTC)

Ohoh, I see. In fact, I've always had the same idea about this, but I wasn't too sure if I worded it correctly, so I made an exact quote of it to be on the safe side. Tony64 (Talk/Con.) 17:14, 25 August 2015 (UTC)

A lot of work[edit]

Thanks for your work with the scenaries, I like to suggest some items in the Item Navbox Needles (Reimu's), USA Flag Silver Blade (Sakuya's Blade from DDC), Yuuka's Umbrella, Bunkachou (Aya's notebook from StB), Hoshiguma Dish, Ibuki Gourd, Parasol of Yakumo, Yorihime's Katana, Toyohime's Fan, Seiga's Hairpin, Zener Cards, Aya's Camera, Hatate's Camera, Bloodthirsty Yin-Yang Orbç, Tengu's Toy Camera, Gap Folding Umbrella, Miracle Mallet Replica, Substitute Jizo, Cursed Decoy Doll, Four-Foot Magic Bomb, Ghastly Send-Off Lantern, Nimble Fabric

And I want to ask if you can confirm that the characters sprites from ISC are the same than in older games or some link to the game image rips because I can't find them to confirm that by myself

Yes, all those objects will fit nicely in Template:Navbox Objects, although I would merge all umbrellas in the list to just 'Unbrella' since they're frequent in Touhou. Also, I'll have a look through each sprite of ISC to confirm that they do appear same from previous games. Don't worry, I'll sort these out and categorise them :) Tony64 (Talk/Con.) 17:54, 2 September 2015 (UTC)
So, I think that I've managed to get all sprite images categorised to ISC :) I'll do the rest for t'other games over time. Tony64 (Talk/Con.) 22:47, 2 September 2015 (UTC)
Many thanksVirus bass (talk) 23:51, 2 September 2015 (UTC)
I think most ISC items could fit just as well in other articles with redirects. For example, there's already a blurb about the Send-Off Lantern under Soul Torch. The Bloodthirsty Yin-Yang Orb (Yin-Yang Orb), Tengu's Toy Camera (Aya's Camera), Miracle Mallet Replica (Miracle Mallet), Decoy Doll (Doll), could all just be redirects. Jizou or Jizou Statue should be an article here already with how often they reoccur in Touhou which Substitute Jizou would redirect to. As should just Magic Bomb with a focus on stuff like Marisa and possibly Sanae's bomb from the fighters, which Four-Foot Magic Bomb could redirect to. I think the only one that wouldn't is Nimble Fabric. Sakuya's Silver Blade could go in a general Knife article, as well. UTW 01:37, 3 September 2015 (UTC)
You could be right there. I've had the idea to have each ISC item to have an individual article, but merging with other articles could be a possibility (as well as Sakuya's blade). I'm not too sure about the Bloodthirsty Yin-Yang Orb though; isn't that an entirely separate thing to Reimu's orbs? The current article of Yin-Yang Orb is specifically in reference to Reimu's orbs only, but it could include other seperate Yin-Yangs like I did with seperating PC-98 and Window's Makai and the different forms of Hell, I don't know. I shan't be doing this as I'm currently prioritising images, stage enemies and locations, so I'll let you or someone else do this. Tony64 (Talk/Con.) 15:11, 3 September 2015 (UTC)
Fair point about the Yin-Yang Orb/Bloodthirsty Yin-Yang. I hadn't actually looked at the article or remembered it was dedicated to Reimu's orb. One could say the same about Aya's Camera/Tengu's Toy Camera, though. But like that example, since the Bloodthirsty Yin-Yang is based on Reimu's I would be inclined to include it anyway, however. Just as a blurb. Also, since Yin-Yang isn't taken, I think I might just use that as a general Yin-Yang page under which all the others could be listed with links to the existing articles. UTW 02:43, 4 September 2015 (UTC)
So a general Yin-Yang page and a quick reference on the original page? That'll do for us :) Tony64 (Talk/Con.) 07:13, 4 September 2015 (UTC)

Re: This comma[edit]

You didn't want me to discuss on any talk pages as well as the other users, so I don't have anymore choices but forcing myself to change it. Also, I didn't remove the comma near the "black high-collared cloak" part. Nintenchris5963 (talk)

You seem to be misunderstanding. As far as I know, nobody told you to not use talk pages. You're always free to use them as long as you've got summat decent to say and that you will take other peoples' comments into consideration each and every time. People were specifically telling you to move on from this discussion since an agreement was made, not telling you to stop using talk pages altogether. You have done some good edits, but if people comment about them or change/remove them, then co-operate! I might've misunderstood your situation when I commented on your talk page earlier, but to try and keep things calm, please do try and make good discussion. If people don't agree with your comments, then you must face the facts. It's not much to ask for. Also, you've removed the comma twice here and here. Tony64 (Talk/Con.)
The reason why I removed the comma on the Personality part is because the last sentence is altogether. For example:
Without comma: "Sumireko gains a sense of respect for the people of Gensokyo and decides to pursure friendship with them."
With comma: "Sumireko gains a sense of respect for the people of Gensokyo, and she decides to pursure friendship with them."
If it's with comma, then you need to add a subject like the word "she" for the last sentence (second sentence on this talk page). That's why I removed the comma for the last sentence (first sentence on this talk page). Nintenchris5963 (talk)
Oh, with my last edit, I meant the comma in 'black, high-collared cloak', not the quote you've just reference. (Must've not being specific as I was commenting on your comment of this talk page.) Regardless, I agree with what you stated regarding the 'respect for the people of Gensokyo' sentence. Tony64 (Talk/Con.) 23:50, 10 September 2015 (UTC)
Here's the proof that needs a comma between "teleportaion" and "and". Read "Rule 1" in this site. Nintenchris5963 (talk)
Ah, but here's the problem; that's just one of the many, many guides. This isn't being against your comments or anything like, for e.g. have a look at Wikipedia's entry on the subject about the oxford comma. It contains many popular English guides that either support or oppose the oxford comma. These, along with your link, aren't proofs as to how English works, but more of a way for people to follow and how to structure their sentences. I've already explained this on this talk page. You see, basically, there is the option to not have an oxford comma, even in some American usage. Dis-using the comma is widely in BrE, unless an actual, more complex ambiguity comes up. Me being a BrE user, I understand why there would be ambiguity in 'We had coffee, cheese and crackers and grapes,' but I wouldn't see the ambiguity straight-away. To me, the last 'and' indicates the sepatator for the last item, whilst the first 'and' isn't a separator and that it's part of the second item itself. Or, the phase could also be re-written as 'We had coffee, cheese & crackers and grapes.' (Using the ampersand here is legal according to Wikipedia.) The matter on Sumireko's page does not contain any form of ambiguity and the list is simply using 1 or 2 words rather than 'little sentences', so even without the comma, 'teleportation' and 'astral projection' are still seen as separate items.
It is things such as this that led to having this guideline implemented, and that is why I keep referencing that page. If the comma was placed there by the original editor, then I wouldn't've bothered with it (per guidelines). Tony64 (Talk/Con.) 01:29, 11 September 2015 (UTC)
