The page might not work as intended if scripting is disabled (for example: dark mode), please enable it (do it for us please ♥). This browser is too old for dark mode to work, use a newer one please (we are sorry) :(

Here you've got your dark mode, enjoy it!

May be we'll add a real one if you ask us nicely ^^

Touhou Launcher

The improved version of the old and outdated Touhou Launcher made by Widdiful.

Features

F.A.Q

The answer is yes. The Launcher supports non-static patches (thcrap); in fact, we would recommend you not to use static patches.

You can do so by going to your installation folder and putting the image file (only png files) under the folder named "images" with the file being named "thXX" (for EoSD would be "th06" and so on...) for the games and "random" for the random button. You will have to enable the feature in the "Settings" section in the Launcher.

This is a problem with the engine of the built-in browser and thus we cannot fix it.

We do not know the cause yet, but as soon as we know how to fix this, we will do so.

Changelog

  • Added Japanese language; some translations may be wrong, so let us know if you have any correction!
  • Added some tools to the games tab, this is subject to change in the future.
  • Added replay.royalflare.net as replay source. F for gensokyo.org
  • Changed the name of Touhou 12.3 to Hisotensoku because some people found the other one awkward.
  • Things that are not changes:

  • We're not renaming Touhou 17.5 to Touhou Explorer, may be we could rename it to "..."?
  • We don't nor does the Launcher prefer static patches, in fact, we do not recommend the use of static patches.

  • Fixed Discord link in About section not working.
  • Added a cooldown of 1 second to the rating system.
  • Fixed fan-games being opened right away after clicking once.

  • Added characters "-" and "_" to rename fan-games, as well as numbers 0-9.
  • Fixed crashing when rating a game when actually there's no game selected.
  • Fixed crashing when trying to open an inexistent AppData folder of any game. We forgot to add the text for the error message :(
  • Fixed AoCF saying that it had an AppData folder and that its replay folder didn't exist.
  • Fixed exploit that made it posible so that you could rate the same game multiple times. If you discover bugs, report them, don't exploit them! Or we'll have Eiki lecture you for a long time~
  • Added support for Touhou 17.5. (Don't ask why, we already know it is just a beta)
  • We have added a dark mode so you don't get blind at night! (Not yet available in the page)
  • Fixed bug that would crash the Launcher when viewing average rates. It's the float type fault, not ours!
  • We have added a feature so you can rate the games and also view their average rate!
  • Added some secret (not so secret) stuff~
  • Fixed the Launcher crashing in Windows 7. We couldn't test it in W7 so we didn't know it was crashing :(
  • Added support for Touhou 17, thus unsupporting its trial. That was quick, wasn't it?
  • When adding an image for a button its text will disappear. Thank the person who suggested this, we never thought of this! <3
  • Administrator rights are no longer required to play PC-98 games.
  • Fixed a bug where replays files would download in the incorrect place.
  • From now on, when you copy a replay's url you will be asked if you want to download that replay. See? This time it isn't only a simple bug fix, we told you to trust us!
  • Fixed a bug where the window would not auto-close in certain cases. Next update will contain something that is not a bug fix, trust us!
  • Fixed a bug where it wasn't able to run PC-98 games (it required true administrator rights). Sorry for not fixing every bug at once :(
  • Fixed a bug where it wasn't able to link fan-games with Unicode characters (non-ASCII characters, such as Japanese ones). Thank the 4th release of Fantasy Maiden Wars, we wouldn't have found the bug if it wasn't for it :(
  • Initial release. More to come, we promise :)
