Conserve bandwidth!
Download: MP4 MPG - 1 2 3 4 5

A complete playthrough of G-Darius in one credit; just barely made it through this one. Running the HD version here.

This is also a test of a function I implemented just now, where the MPEG-1 video is split into separate segments - something that could very well be a necessity for larger videos down the line. The video player that comes with Internet Explorer 3 (Windows 95B) seems to play them all fine, but XingMPEG seems to hate how FFmpeg encodes MPEG-1 video, and encoding something like this in Cinepak or Microsoft Video 1 would yield too large of a file size, so it looks like Windows 3.1 users (wherever they are) are going to be singled out.

The segments are neatly numbered and can be obtained separately, while the H.264 encode remains one large clip. This sort of distribution should give you an idea of what's to come. Something real good is gonna pop up on here later this month.

Atleast PlayStation 3's and XBOX 360's like MPEG-1 Files Encoded With FFmpeg for the .MPG File

Xnmcv: Thank for the reply.

Here are two trivias for randoms out there:
- The author of Touhou Project used to work at Taito Corporation, the very same company that made G-Darius. (https://en.touhouwiki.net/wiki/ZUN)
- Early games of the series made for PC-98 platform have binaries "stolen" and hex-edited from other company's. (https://spaztron64.github.io/th98tuc_site/)

To flatrute, since Kugee preferred to not answer the question: One of G-Darius' strengths was that it was a very refined iteration of the shoot 'em up genre with professional quality touches to existing elements of gameplay that made it memorable to several who played (and especially beat) it. Touhou deviated from the traditional format of the genre in a way that didn't have the same level of polish as G-Darius did, thus Kugee was not pleased with Touhou Project.

If you cannot afford enough money for purchasing a personal domain, perhaps you can try Neocities, the website where I do my xnmcv.neocities.org site. It comes in a free version and a paid-for-money version; in the free version you get 1GB of storage space for your website, whereas in the paid-for-money version you get more than 1GB.

Really nice run there!

So I only have 2 things to say:
- My plan failed and I cannot afford money to even buy a personal domain so I am just wandering on the "surprise me..." zone of Wiby and occasionally revisit this site for now.
- I remember you expressing a dislike to Touhou Project on Discord or somewhere. Was that actually happended and what is your opinion about it anyway?
