Challenges go here.

Challenge I: Beat SA as Reimu C, unfocused and pacifist, on easy.

Challenge II:  1cc SA using Reimu A, without using the right key.

Post a replay or video to show you did it. More will come once someone does the most recent challenge.

I can't even clear stage six easy in practice mode under these conditions. Granted, I only tried once, but you might want to start with challenges that are slightly more possible.

As an additional note, pacifist and SA don't really mix. You can never bomb (although true pacifist doesn't bomb anyway) and you will get zero extra lives, since star pieces aren't dropped when attacks are timed out.

Hmm...

-no focus = feasible to some extent, but SA makes it that clipping is far too common, especially with the handicap of no precise movements.

-pacifist = feasible... to some extent (but as Kefit said... 2 lives isn't a lot to work with). And pacifist implies no bombing; if you want to incorporate bombing, it is better to say "timeout challenge".

-no focus, pacifist; 1+1 =/=2, but a greater value. This can be demonstrated better through probability.

-no focus, pacifist, and ReimuC? Show us what you've got first.

I'm giving it a try, but it is damn hard. Especially stage 5. And Stage 3 Shackles is NOT NICE.

geh fuck it. Stage 5 is too difficult, I can't pass it with 3 lives, nevermind finishing the game with that stage in the way.

Maybe it would be better if, instead of having to 1cc it, the winner is the one who can simply get the farthest under those conditions.  I actually tried ReimuC unfocused/pacifist in practice a while ago, and it was obvious that 1ccing like that is pretty much impossible mostly due to stage 6.  Even taking into account ReimuC's ridiculous movement, Utsuho's sun bullets make unfocused movement kind of hard due to... certain limitations (spoiler:  YOU CAN'T SEE YOUR SPRITE).

My attempt

Got to stage 4 before game overing in a totally dumb way.
Also died twice on stage 3: once stupidly and once acceptably.

Jesus. I could probably make it to Stage 4 if my fingers weren't so twitchy.
And tapping the keyboard didn't send you thirty pixels. Parsee's opener is hell.

Because my skills at micrododging (i.e. microtapping) sucks so much (see: VoWG Lunatic attempts), I died twice on stage 1, to Yamame's last spell card. Then I clip Parsee's opening.

Attempted it just because I can. Probably won't try it again.

EDIT: Done Stage 4 practice without dying. Very plausible that stage.
EDIT 2: Rin's going to slaughter you. Unless you can microtap through a dense pattern.

Bah, made it to Yuugi's last nonspell.  :P  It was actually quite easy at the beginning for the most part, but then I got to Shackles.  Oh God Shackles.  Then I died to her bubble card and the nonspell right after due to clipdeath on the former and panic on the latter.

Made the requirements slightly more forgiving, and added a new challenge.

@I: that means 3 lives per stage. Stage 6 is still unfeasible. Rin may still be unfeasible. Got no time to check atm.

@II: I can say shackles will basically be VERY, VERY boring. And Hell's Artificial Sun will be basically insta-bomb, since gapping is impossible. Good luck with Blazing Wheel, without bombing... heh. Basically all of Utsuho's Spell Cards will require bombing, so conservation is the key.

At this point I think we should just use this thread for most odd challenges and stuff and combine them all in the first post preferably.

Otherwise, I might start a new thread for that.

P.S. Here's a challenge I've been working on, see how far you guys can get:

MoF Lunatic [True] Pacifist

Here's my stats:
Stage 1: perfect
Stage 2: 4 deaths (definitely possible)
Stage 3: 6 deaths (the fairies you see right before Nitori flees are the obly real obstacle)
Stage 4: oh god awkjalkekfneeli (uhhhhhhh)
Stage 5: 4 deaths (not that bad at all actually, just gotta get a bit lucky)
Stage 6: oh god aeleakjlkealkealk (uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh)

...

Funny, I can do the stage with only 2 clippings, and 1 of those was a "stupid" clip. Whereabouts it is... it's when the "mid-fairy" comes in.

If you want the replay containing my demise on the stage... I'll put it up when I wake up.

Got to level 5 on the first challenge (pacifist unfocused Reimu/Aya), died once on Yuugi's Spinning Wheel of Hell or whatever it's called (harder than I thought it would be) and then twice on the stage portion of level 5. What a fucking kick in the balls these challenges are.

I like it.

I usually get 2, maybe 1 on the stage if I'm lucky. I've only survived that second one once, and I was just incredibly lucky that time. Doesn't look like it'll happen very often though.

That no right button thing sounds pretty dumb to be honest. I don't see how that's possible and it seems like it'll be really annoying with tons of memorizing.

I practiced stage 4, 5, and 6 using the second challenge, and it actually seems pretty feasible on easy.  Blazing wheel can be passed via safespot, and Nuclear Fusion is doable with proper timing of gaps.  I was even able to capture Hell's Artificial Sun; it's so pathetic on easy that I just tapped to the left when a bullet came near me and it ended before I even got out of range.  However, Petit Flare and Hell/Heaven Meltdown are ultra bullshit, as well as Orin's second boss card.  Bombspamb tiem!

Keep in mind that ReimuA can border hax.

Agh, the mental block needed for Challenge II is insanely hard. I made it to Yamame's last card on Easy and poked right on reflex. >_>

And no-focus Reimu C pacifist? Sorry, but I'm only human.

I had a reasonable amount of success by just going to the bottom of the screen and never pressing any direction other than left... but that wouldn't work for the entire game (and soon after I started using the up and down keys, I instinctively pressed right)

I died once on Hanasaka by accident, so I purposefully game over'd at Stage 3, and I continued from there with the starting three lives.

I made it all the way to Nuclear Fusion, and almost succeeded in beating it.

I have complete confidence in my ability to actually be able to do this one.

This one is only Easy Mode and not as eye-opening as, say, GIL's no-horizontal PCB run.  Outside of Normal and up I imagine most people can walk in and finish this difficulty on the first try if they're already familiar with the workings of the stages.  There's wasn't much trouble not hitting the right arrow key but it was disabled just in case.  Replay here.  Rekindling of Dead Ashes was nice and I should have let it time out.

If anyone has a method for the stage portion of six on challenge one please share!  I cannot achieve any lower than two misses.
