The server has been up and down for the past half hour due to technical problems with the ISP. Hopefully it'll be resolved very soon. Sorry for the inconvenience.

EDIT: The service might go down for an extended period in a few hours while the problem is resolved.

EDIT 2: Problem's fixed! Service should be much smoother now. On that note, the wiki is down! I don't know why but I'm looking into it now.

EDIT 3: Wiki is back up.

Shoddy service is a little shaky today because of a change to the lines that the server operates on. Also, the new modem will be here next week, which means it should be more stable after that.

In 1.8, Alice is probably the best because she can have the best of both Reisen and Sanae if you raise her right. In game, walling tends to be a very poor tactic unless your team is really weak to a certain type that a powerful trainer uses a lot of, so Sanae isn't all that great. Reisen is fast and powerful, but Alice will typically be strong enough to get important kills but won't die nearly as easily as Reisen.

1.5? No question. Nothing else gets two of the best specially offensive types in the game on top of speed boost and a ridiculous Sp.Atk growth.

Shoddy  has been up and down for the past few days/weeks and I can understand any frustration from all -1 people who have been inconvenienced by this. This is all traced back to the modem for the internet that the server uses, and will be replaced soon. I will update when I know this replacement will take place. [inspoiler]Maybe someday I'll actually have a dedicated machine for this server, when enough people actually care.[/inspoiler]

[inspoiler]Clearly I should use all the dumb ideas in this thread to create an 'extended' metagame for Shoddy 1.8[/inspoiler]

If you were on while the power breaker blew, taking the server down with it, I apologize. Server has been restored though.

Creative Conundrum / EXS' Newest THPP Hack (that's awful)
« on: August 11, 2012, 03:20:53 AM »
Yep, EXS is making another touhoumon hack. Except this time it's going to be (gasp) original. Kinda like Gensokyo Scenario, the plan is a completely new region along with new opponents, a (somewhat) new plot and otherwise lots of originality. Hah, originality, I crack myself up sometimes you know?

Plot (what plot?):
Sometime in the future, engineering has taken leaps and bounds after the first successful creation of an artificial biological lifeform that had it's own feelings, mind and soul. No homunculi, these new living creatures perfectly simulate a mammalian biosystem without any of the adverse side effects to playing god; the ability to create life had finally been reverse engineered.

Years later, a benevolent company that helped engineer the new human shaped organisms decides to set forth a plan to help wary humans bond and become comfortable with their new guests on earth, by opening a large regional park where many of the lifeforms had been released into the wild. People would move into the park and see for themselves what life will be like in the near future, when the new species, dubbed 'puppets' for their small size, eventually populate a large majority of the world and become a part of the ecosystem.

This being Japan, they had to make it enticing and more attractive to the general public. Being among the most popular franchises at the time, the company breeds the puppets into Touhou look alikes. Eventually, after the doors were opened, people realized that the puppets could be kept as pets, and the bonding was more or less ensured. However, after a while, the company realized that the puppets took on the characteristics of the fictional characters they were bred to look like and began battling each other, both in the wild and in captivity. Instead of trying to prevent this, the company capitalized on it after finding out that combat between two puppets was never necessarily fatal and seemed to be more for sport amongst the new lifeforms.

Thus began the "Puppet Play," a sport where people would capture puppets, befriend them, and battle other people who had captured and befriended their own in a sport that took the park by storm, and even developed it's own league.

You are the park's newest resident, invited by a good friend of your mother's, Professor Redwood and placed into Hakurei Town. Here, you will start your journey into becoming the next "Puppet Play" champion...

I can't believe I just tried to justify the creation of these things

Other things of various importance:
Not much of the hack is done at all. It uses Fire Red as a base (Agastya's version of it to be more specific) and will include the Ten Desires cast and Kasen as new, catchable puppets compared to the official version. There's is a partial world map right now, viewable here. (Warning: Very large image!)

That's about it so far. I'll post more updates as I feel like posting them here.

The client has always been iffy about stat displays, as it never used to support displaying advanced stat changes like that in the team builder. It should display correctly in battle though. (I think...)

Also, use the bug report thread for this kind of thing next time.

The forums and website in general was down for an extended period of time to facilitate a server move. Sorry for the inconvenience.

There was some downtime from 7:00 PM PST to 8:00 PM PST due to networking issues. This issue has been resolved. Sorry for the inconvenience.

ROM Hacks + General Discussion / List of hacks

Taken straight from Poolswimmer:

There are various versions of the game currently in the wild. You can download the latest japanese version off the official uploader for the Touhou Puppet Play Wiki:

The official port of 1.812 to the english version of Fire Red was maintained by EX Sariel, though he has stopped updating.
The official port of 1.5 to the english version of Fire Red was maintained by Lobsterhime, though he has stopped updating.

An unofficial port to bring Touhoumon to Pokemon Diamond is in the works and help is appreciated to anyone who feels like pitching in.
Achiya Sanae is working on an english Fire Red port of 1.81x implementing content from the unofficial patches, such as new puppets and the Johto region. More information about this can be found here:
Agastya is working on a hack of Emerald based on 1.81x. It can be found here:

Note that the rest of these versions are based off 1.5:
Touhoumon Another World is a straight english port based on the famous japanese Gensokyo Scenario and Touhoumon World Link is a custom Emerald hack, both compatible with each other and found on Achiya's blog here: +
Aqua+Yui is an english version designed to fill up as many slots as possible and focus on collecting. You can get it here:
Drakuaza's Insane version is an extreme difficulty hack designed to push the limits of the player itself. Not for the feint of heart, you've been warned. You can get it here:
Anjirusensei's Scarlet Emerald hack is still floating about, but he has taken down his own links himself and asks for his projects to rest in piece. The Mediafire link that used to be here has thus been 404 for quite a while.
There is a different Emerald hack by EXSariel and Agastya, primarily the former. It is currently up to 1.1, but no longer getting updates. You can get it here:

Feel free to post suggestions on any others that should get added.

Some basic information and rules:

  • No spamming, flaming, general disrupting the community and what have you. The admins have the right to determine what is disrupting the community and if you don't like it, tough.
  • Touhoumon goes in Touhoumon boards. Other stuff goes here.
  • There's no warning levels or strikes or whatever. Admins reserve the right to hand out any befitting punishment they feel is necessary.
  • The forums are mainly made to compliment the wiki and Shoddy 2 but in general, it's just a community for people who like Touhou Puppet Play, that's all there is to it.
  • If you want a chat room, grab Shoddy 2. It's in the Shoddy subforum.
