OFFICIAL POST-MORTEM ON TOUHOU DOOM: https://pastebin.com/i33dSYr5
If you like Touhou Doom, and are curious about the modding process behind it, give this pastebin (or check out postmortem.txt in the pk3) a look.
It's over 19,000 words, but I think it does highlight most of my creative challenges.

Is this the one that term13 streamed with demonsteele or is this another version?

Not the same at all - this new version of Touhou Doom is a 'Take 2' for that version; because I thought that a Touhou Doom could actually be possibly not bad.

It ended up rehauling literally everything, so yeah, this is a thing now.

EDIT: In fact, I only gave the mod its own thread because at this point the mod is basically almost entirely re-hauled.

Was happy for this mod to be released on Cirno Day of all things. What I didn't expect was Koishi Hell: Doom Edition with Shotgun DLC. °^°

This is a lot of fun. I cleared E1 on Lunatic, Flan and E2 on Normal so far. It feels kinda weird to see no health bar or timer. Sometimes I'm not sure if I'm hitting bosses (vibration sound upon hitting enemies is not there, or the position indicator for bosses). However, Doomguy's fat hitbox being offset with health points works surprisingly well. I also like how certain spell cards go full 3D, like Kagome Kagome and Diamond Blizzard.

Some bosses are easily cheesed. In particular, you can avoid Mei Ling's Rainbow Wind Chime by standing on a hill, almost completely avoid Patchi's Royal Flare by running up to her and any of Remi's RNG "bullets move into random directions" walls by alternating between standing on her throne and on level with her.

Was waiting for meow in Satori's stage. Meow was never delivered. :(

It would be neat if Mei Ling's rainbow attacks actually had the rainbow colour pattern to them instead of a rainbow gradient on each bullet like in EoSD.

The second extra stage is a masterpiece.

I'll definitely play E3 and try to clear E2 on Lunatic as well. :p

AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA yeah Koishi's entire battle is kind of, well,

In order:
1. Lack of health bar is pure laziness on my part, though part of it is that Touhou Lifebars are weird; especially with any time there's more than one spellcard in a single lifebar, and that's kind of a pain to work out.
2. Timer is again laziness, though now that you mention it, I don't think it'd be that hard to implement it...
3. I actually really want to do the vibration sound; the only issue is that the only thing I have access to as far as monster-reaction sounds go is the pain-state (which would interrupt attacks, which I do not want), and I really don't want to have to modify every single projectile the player can fire.
4. The position indicator isn't really a thing as you can aim directly at a boss, circumventing the need for good placement to hurt them.

About 30% of the reason for this mod's existence is visual spectacle, so yeah, pretty much.

In order:
1. Meiling's Rainbow Wind Chime suffers from the fact that it's not actually aimed at you - which means it, by definition, cannot readjust its aim depending the player position. There is a reason that every single boss arena with a couple of exceptions is a 100% flat, featureless box - about 50% of the patterns in Touhou Doom completely fizzle if a vertical element is thrown in.
2. God damn it how did I miss that
3. See point 1 of this list.

It felt dishonest to throw the meow sound in there without Midboss Orin, and I'm not putting Midboss Orin in there because ahahahahahahaha

Again, that's mostly laziness on my part.

If you're a Touhou fan, I think you'll probably get a good kick out of E3.

EDIT: Re-Download the file, it turns out I never tested Easy Mode: MAP18 couldn't actually be finished on easy mode, embarrassingly enough, and it was also missing a megasphere, making it far harder than intended on easier difficulties (I'd say it was on normal than lunatic).

Both of these are fixed.

from finishing it, the last boss is a complete pushover to the point where i killed him without even moving. his painstate is abusable to no end.

First off, there's no 'He's' in the game (I'm pedantic), and sorry but /which/ final boss? Episode I? Episode II? Episode III? Does this include Extra Bosses?

EDIT: It's also worth noting that Episode IV (MAP21 to MAP30) isn't actually finished yet, so don't warp to those maps - there's nothing there!

(and also sorry but if you claim to beat Reimu without moving I'll calling total bull because her entire fight conspires to make that 5000% not possible, especially on Hard or Lunatic)

Seriously enjoying this, which Touhou game(s) are the bosses from?

I'm really enjoy this mod so far, but I stuck on map16 in the room with candelabras. I don't have any clue how to avoid all this.

EPISODE I: All bosses are taken from Touhou 6: Embodiment of Scarlet Devil.
EPISODE II: Youmu/Yuyuko are from Touhou 7, though the patterns are inspired more by Touhou 10.5, Komachi's from Touhou 9 (with inspiration from 10.5), Suika's from 7.5 (inspiration for patterns from 9.5/12.5), the rest from Touhou 11, Koishi's patterns inspired by a lot of things
Episode III: Sanae's more or less directly from Touhou 10 (with some inspiration from 12.3), Alice inspired by 10.5, Marisa's patterns are from all over the place, Reimu's are kind of their own thing, Yukari is from Touhou 7 (with one pattern from 9.5)

Everyone's sprites except Rumia, Flandre, and the Touhou 11 bosses are all taken from Touhou 12.3: Hisoutensoku; I don't know where the rest are from.

I played what would count was the original, and wasn't terribly impressed with it.

This, I am enjoying. I mean, it's nice to play DOOM with Touhou because I'm actually decent at DOOM. :V

I'm talking about that spider mastermind variant at the last episode. the one colored black with green eyes.
