Vpatch

Removes input delay, allows you to increase in-game FPS (default is 60), optionally fixes several bugs (PCB cherry display, MoF MarisaB 3-power unfocus, UFO 2.147b score display). The input delay is mostly prevalent in the older games (EoSD to IN) and running them on Vpatch will significantly improve the gameplay experience.

Vpatch is applicable to all official shooting games bar DDC and HSiFS.

SpoilerAL

Japanese program that can load .ssg files that modify the game while it is running, allowing for practice options as well as cheats. SpoilerAL SSGs require the original Japanese versions of the games to work. The 4.6 SSGs have practice options such as skipping to a specific frame of the game or a specific spell, while the niL SSGs have cheat options such as invincibility. There is also a separate MoF SSG made by Akaldar for efficient practice in that game specifically, a separate GFW SSG, as well as a TD SSG specifically designed for efficient scoring practice, made by Leo, a DDC SSG and a LoLK Chapter Practice SSG by 32th System and separate HSiFS SSGs with cheat options. Be wary of an occasional menu bug that causes an SSG to duplicate itself and make other SSGs invisible.

PC-98 Emulators

Neko Project 21

The only emulator that is currently still maintained together with DOSBox-X. It offers unlimited savestates and has high accuracy, but requires the right configurations; can be confusing for new users. The emulator is located in the bin folder with two versions, 32-bit and 64-bit (x64).

Download

T98-Next

Easy-to-use emulator that will emulate the Touhou games properly without needing configuration of any kind, but less feature-rich, and allows 8 active savestates at a time, 4 of which through hotkeys.

Download

Anex86

This emulator has low system requirements and can run even on very old computers. However, the graphics are mediocre and the sound emulation requires proper configuration to be accurate. Allows for 8 savestates and requires a separate font file, linked below.

DOSBox-X

A fork of the DOSBox project that has support for PC-98. It is the only emulator to run natively under not only Windows, but also Mac and Linux. A list of downloads for each system can be found via the link below.
