Hello, LR! I just want to ask, how can I TAS Touhou? I've asked around, and the only real answer I've gotten is 'use Vsync and change the game FPS', which doesn't work. I can get it to run faster, but I want to slow it down.
In your Touhou directory, there is a 'custom.exe' there. Open it and you should have this (I'm using the English here).
This one is from Touhou 10. Anyways, in 'Rendering Rate', you can change how much slower you want to play the game in. It is pretty much self-explanatory of how much slower you want to play. After that, click on 'Save and Quit' and you are done~
Uhh, that just cuts the amount of frames getting rendered. It won't really slow the game down.
Normally if I want to slow down the game I just use FRAPS and record at whatever framerate I desire but there is also more advanced methods but I have never gotten interested enough in TAS'in to actually learn them.
yeah, when I try and Fraps it, it goes at, like, 10 FPS, crashes often, the numbers at the side flicker between one value and another, the whole game window flickers, and it just renders the whole game just about unplayable.
Download FRAPS and record ^_^. It makes the game go about half its normal speed. I wanted to try doing a NON TAS but I gave up when I realized FRAPS makes it go slow and no one is going to believe I actually did a non TAS run if they see the framerate at the bottom right, even if it is a recording.
As for save states... well, I don't really know about that, but I don't see how you can die when everything is going slow.

You could just use Slow Mode that's in the game Config section, but the thing doesn't save replays and it blows the whole point of a "speedrun". And if you still have problems with FRAPS, then I have to say that you're pretty much out of luck on making the speedrun, or you need to upgrade your RAM on either the Graphics card or just the plain memory... or you need a better computer. Most computers made in the past few years should have no problem running FRAPs and doing a game like Touhou at the same time.

Idea: I don't know if it's what you want to do, but do it without recording on Fraps first to give yourself a good slow rate (most people are accepting of anything up to about 2%). Save a replay once you're done and record that. That way you can rip a video and have the FPS counter in the game window read a fairly consistent 60fps. The one in the very bottom-right will probably fluctuate, but that's the current fps, not the fps of the actual gameplay run. So, as a result, you have a non-TAS replay - and the appropriate evidence that it was such - and a video recording of it. Just make sure to point out the replay fps so your viewers know.
As for actually using TAS, I don't care. I've done everything the hard way, and I'm gonna stay that way and be all smug about my superiority over those who use TAS.
