Touhou Puppet Dance Performance / Re: TPDP Randomizer
« on: December 23, 2017, 10:23:26 AM »
To be honest I sort of like the sign skill cards getting locked out after using one and wish there were some way to similarly limit the remaining skill cards, like only being allowed to use one skill card from an assortment of 15 or so cards. But I somehow doubt that causing skill cards to randomly lock out other skill cards is an easily managed feat.


It does add to that challenge factor in the game, like forcing you to choose what skill to teach that puppet carefully, but like I said before, there are some people that don't like that challenge at all. So it's probably better to make it a toggleable option rather than an outright change to the randomizer. It could also be a luck thing as well. Just pray that the sign skills have bad skills and you're good.

There's something I noticed while playing the game. I used the randomized skill cards in the randomizer and played the game. Managed to get all skill cards and then the problem hit in. I believe the Sign skills are also randomized as well, but the only one sign skill restriction is still there, even if the skill is randomized. Just a guess but for some reason, when I taught a puppet a skill from the skill cards, some of the other skill cards disappeared from the selection, even if they were there before I taught them that skill. Once I overwrited that learned skill, they all came back at the selection, then disappeared again when I picked a skill from the previously deleted ones.

sign skills are hard-coded by item ID in the game code, there's no way around that besides just not randomizing the sign skill cards.
skill cards are considered items by the game, they have a field which determines what skill it teaches.
since sign skills are determined by the item that teaches it, when you change the skill a sign skill card teaches, that skill becomes a sign skill.
the internals of this game are really wonky.

i'll add that to the known issues list in the OP for now, next version will probably just leave sign skills unrandomized



It's not that big of a deal, it just means that I still have to be picky about what to teach them. It basically becomes a luck thing as well, since those sign skill may have the good moves in one randomized gameplay, then they end up being bad skills in the next, nothing really game breaking though. Just wanted to point out some things I found while doing this. And maybe add an option to leave the sign skills untouched rather than adding it directly. There may be some people who like to have this luck thing going on.

A little late, but thanks for the heads up. Probably will try that then. Saw that you have a beta, will try it out later.

Oh and another thing I wanted to mention. Is it possible to edit the max PP a puppet can use to increase stats?

super late, but:
BTW, a suggestion. Maybe add an option to the randomized stats that actually gives out a proper distribution to the stats based on their original stats or maybe increase the stats off all puppets by percentage.

i've added an adjustable "proportional stats" option which allows stats to be randomized to within +/- the specified percentage of the original stat. that should allow puppets to retain some semblance of their original stat distribution.

also, more stuff that should have been implemented ages ago:
  • option to make trainer puppets conform to skill level requirements (does not affect skillcard moves)
  • option to adjust chance for trainer puppets to have skillcard moves (per move slot; leave blank for shuffle)
  • option to adjust chance for trainer puppets to have a held item


Thanks man for the update. At least I can randomize properly now. At this point, I just need to wait for the story translation (if it will actually continue) of YnK to continue so I can play smoothly for that one. Now the problem is that another 2hu game came out with new characters, so I don't know how the original creators will implement that. :wub:

Yeah, it's a mystery to me as well. I noticed in the first post that you only tried it until prologue, so I thought it was just a tutorial glitch. The actual characters themselves that are normal trainers have full parties with all their puppets properly sprited, only the boss battles so far have that glitch. But all-in-all, not that game breaking. The glitched puppets still behave normally (ie. Strengths and Weaknesses are the same, attacks are plausible [unless using the attack/SC randomizer]), so no biggie.

BTW, a suggestion. Maybe add an option to the randomized stats that actually gives out a proper distribution to the stats based on their original stats or maybe increase the stats off all puppets by percentage. In one of my randomized games (backed up original game), almost all of the Focus Attack puppets have a higher Spread attack that their Focus attack stat and vice-versa. And some of the puppets are "LITERAL" glass cannons, especially the farther you go (a LV 50 puppet has around 20-30-ish defense whether Focus or Spread). I even got a Sukuna with an abnormally high Focus Attack and Defense when I style changed her. Add her signature skill to that and I just broke the game. In another, almost all puppets I caught were slower than a turtle.

If that's impossible, then it's fine. Once I'm done with the base game, I'll try Ynk next (though I can't read Japanese).

Took a long time since I'm grinding and school.

Haven't gotten far into the game yet, but I noticed the trainer puppets that are invisible (when I add puppets to the trainers) are mainly from the scripted boss trainer battles. It also seems that the only ones not invisible are the same amount of puppets they were normally supposed to have (Ex: Marisa is supposed to only have one puppet, so the rest are either invisible or takes a different sprite image. Same with the PLF group in the village who are only supposed to use 2 puppets except the boss). Will go along further in game to confirm.

BTW, I'm using the translated game, just in case that is the cause of the error. The first one, not YnK.


Update 1: Already delivered the package. It seems that the invisible puppets are 75% likely to happen to scripted boss battles. Battled regular trainers and the regular Touhou character trainers not part of the story. All had full teams that are not invisible. Will go to SDM to confirm if it's true.
