==Essential improvements==
 +
===Patches===
 +
Patches for the full game can be found under the section "バージョンアップ差分DL" (Version Upgrade Download) from the game's official website. Download the patches marked as "ver1.02f" and "ver1.02h", then install them in that order. You may need to rename the game's executable from {{file|th06.exe}} to "{{code|東方紅魔郷.exe}}" and run the patches under [[Microsoft Windows#Non-unicode applications|Japanese Unicode settings]] to properly install them.<ref name="updating th06">{{Refcheck|user=AmethystViper|date=July 10, 2018|comment=}}</ref>

 +
===Retexture Patch===
 +
{{ii}} Requires the latest official patches and English fan-translation patch.
 +
{{++}} Enhances the overall look of the game to be comparable to the series' later installments with cleaner, higher resolution assets.
 +
 +
{{Fixbox|description=Installing the Retexture Patch|ref=<ref name="retexture patch">{{Refcheck|user=AmethystViper|date=July 10, 2018|comment=}}</ref>|fix=
 +
# Download the patch from [https://en.touhouwiki.net/wiki/Game_Tools_and_Modifications#Retexture_Patch here], then extract its contents to its own folder.
 +
# Copy the {{file|th06e_ST.DAT}} from the Retexture Patch folder into <code>{{p|game}}</code>.
 +
# Next, chose which preferred hitbox type you prefer from the Retexture Patch (Visible Hitbox or Invisible Hitbox) and copy its {{file|th06e_TL.DAT}} and {{file|th06e_CM.DAT}} into <code>{{p|game}}</code>.
 +
# Finally, chose your preferred soundpack you wish you use from the Sound folder (Original, Perfect Cherry Blossom, Imperishable Night, or Subterranean Animism), then copy its {{file|th06e_IN.DAT}} into <code>{{p|game}}</code>.
 +
# Now launch the game. You should noticed a drastic change with the game's visuals.

===DirectDraw problems from DirectX 8===

===Game will not install on Windows 10===
Fixes multiple issues, like the Windows 10 full-screen error and DLL "Entry Point Not Found" error.
+
The game's installer executable may not work under Windows 10, even with compatibility fixes and running under Japanese Unicode Settings. It can however still be manually installed by simply copying the game folder ({{file|th06}}) from the CD-ROM to your computer.<ref name="install error">{{Refcheck|user=AmethystViper|date=July 10, 2018|comment=}}</ref>

===Fullscreen issues on Windows 10===
# Download the DLL [https://www.vogons.org/download/file.php?id=40791].
+
Players have reported the game runs at an uncapped and unstable frame-rate on Windows 10 when played on fullscreen mode, even when using game's internal frame-rate cap enabled.<ref name="unstable framerate">{{Refurl|url=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5A4t-ko3y8o|title=What Windows 10 Did to Touhou 6 - YouTube|date=July 10, 2018}}</ref> Other potential issues include the game not displayed properly on fullscreen (i.e. game window and title  bar being visible on fullscreen) and DLL "Entry Point Not Found" errors.
# Extract files to the installation folder or to C:\Windows\SysWOW64 .
 
# Game should run as usual.

A demo is available from the game's official website, marked under as "ver0.13".

Essential improvements[edit]

Patches[edit]

Patches for the full game can be found under the section "バージョンアップ差分DL" (Version Upgrade Download) from the game's official website. Download the patches marked as "ver1.02f" and "ver1.02h", then install them in that order. You may need to rename the game's executable from th06.exe to "東方紅魔郷.exe" and run the patches under Japanese Unicode settings to properly install them.[1]

Retexture Patch[edit]

Requires the latest official patches and English fan-translation patch.
Enhances the overall look of the game to be comparable to the series' later installments with cleaner, higher resolution assets.
Installing the Retexture Patch[2]
  1. Download the patch from here, then extract its contents to its own folder.
  2. Copy the th06e_ST.DAT from the Retexture Patch folder into <path-to-game>.
  3. Next, chose which preferred hitbox type you prefer from the Retexture Patch (Visible Hitbox or Invisible Hitbox) and copy its th06e_TL.DAT and th06e_CM.DAT into <path-to-game>.
  4. Finally, chose your preferred soundpack you wish you use from the Sound folder (Original, Perfect Cherry Blossom, Imperishable Night, or Subterranean Animism), then copy its th06e_IN.DAT into <path-to-game>.
  5. Now launch the game. You should noticed a drastic change with the game's visuals.

Controller support[edit]

A fix is required for the game to recognize XInput D-pad and analog triggers when assigning controls.
Use XInput Plus[4]
  1. Download and run XInput Plus.
  2. Set the Target Program to th06.exe (or translated variations thereof).
  3. Go to the Key Assign tab, then go to Left Stick and assign it to Multiple Key, then check Left Stick and DPAD.
  4. Go to the DirectInput tab, and check Enable DirectInput Output, and set Guide Button to Button 13.
  5. Click Customize, then assign the following for these drop-down menu respectively:
    • Left/Right Trigger as Button 7/8
    • Back/View and Start/Menu as Button 9 and Button 10
    • Left/Right Stick Button as Button 11/12
  6. Click Apply then OK to save settings and install DLLs. The game should be able to register XInput D-pad and analog triggers as DirectInput buttons.

Issues fixed[edit]

Game will not install on Windows 10[edit]

The game's installer executable may not work under Windows 10, even with compatibility fixes and running under Japanese Unicode Settings. It can however still be manually installed by simply copying the game folder (th06) from the CD-ROM to your computer.[5]

Fullscreen issues on Windows 10[edit]

Players have reported the game runs at an uncapped and unstable frame-rate on Windows 10 when played on fullscreen mode, even when using game's internal frame-rate cap enabled.[6] Other potential issues include the game not displayed properly on fullscreen (i.e. game window and title bar being visible on fullscreen) and DLL "Entry Point Not Found" errors.

Download ENBSeries DX8 to DX9 Converter and extract its contents to <path-to-game> (recommended)[6]
Download DirectX 8 Fullscreen Fix and extract its contents to <path-to-game>[citation needed]
Another option is dgVoodoo, which converts DX8 to directx11, and allows tweaking such as increasing resolution, anti-aliasing, and texture filtering. There is an issue where resolutions higher that 640x480 causes tiling on the background border when combined with any sort of texture filtering.[citation needed]
Alternatively, download the Touhou Patch Center's Unicode vpatch DLL and extract its contents to <path-to-game>. This patch does not modify d3d8.dll, freeing it up to be modified by other patches.
