EDIT: I forgot to mention this, but for some reason, you have to extract and import HUUHI.DAT and HUUMA.CFG individually or EditDisk tosses up an error. Not sure why it does that.
I know that Edit Disk throws up an error for the japanese titled file to replace. I have to rename it every time I replace it by looking at right click, properties, since it has a different name there.
And I got T98. After a while of trying to figure out what was going on, I got it to work. Wow, the music is way different. Drums and everything! :o
I have to ask, the music sounds the same for FM and MIDI but the descriptions say they are different. Is there a way to hear both versions?
Also, it looks like T98 lags the music room because the shapes are moving way slower than in Anex. Not sure if that's right or not. I also can't figure out how to un-fullscreen T98 so I can close the emulation window. I have to run task manager to close it. :V

Run Editdisk with Applocal, or in a Japanese regional setting by some other means. Then you'll be able to import/export the Japanese file without issue.

The music is indeed different; maybe you'll have to listen to them a few times to see how.

F12 brings up the emulation window menu, and from there F10 toggles fullscreen. Be sure to repatch with the regular files if you haven't already, since T98 doesn't let you change the font. Are you using the English T98 emulator linked in the readme?

Still don't hear any difference... Maybe I'm just not good at that.

Yes, I'm using the linked one. Thanks for the help btw!

Is T98-Next compatible with Windows 7? I plan on buying a new laptop with the 64-bit version of Windows 7 Ultimate next year.
And as what was said about before with T98 working with Vista and Windows 7, I'm currently running Windows 7 32bit and it works fine, so you shouldn't have a problem. If it's 64bit, I have no idea. ???

And it looks like I was right about it lagging. If I do the "double tap" even on stage 1, it really does slow down the game. I'm not sure how to fix that since I have the frame skip set to 1.
At least the font still looks good.
I still don't know what the last option on the options menu is, normal and truncate. ???

Well, it's like I said: an older computer isn't quite going to be able to handle full framerate on English T98-next. As for the option in the menu, I'm not entirely sure what it is either, but leave it as "normal". Truncated makes your shots flicker, and makes the vectors in Mima's background display worse.

Ok, I tried what you said about replacing the score stuff to fix the endings but I still can't see them, just the red words.
Also, about that V and W glitch. Now I'm using T98 and in the music room it has a capital W in one of the songs but you used w during conversations, so you got both. Might want to make a note of that.
One more thing, do you see the random lines in the music room's descriptions? A few of the songs have them and it's weird looking. I think that they're in spaces of the text and put at the top of that space.

I fixed it so yeah. I just deleted the one I was using (since the score was reset) and used a copy of the new one and patched it and it works great! I can see the legible endings now!

It's still a beta. Work is currently being done on the next release candidate.

...besides, I'm sure this topic will wind up stickied when it finally does have its more-or-less final release.

The character graphics used by the sidebar can be found in MIKOFT.BFT, which can be edited using YY-CHR in 16x16 1bpp mode. The way the PC-98 Touhou games modify the character graphics also seems to cause an issue with Anex86's video emulation resulting in the blanking/modification of V and W. Editing MIKOFT.BFT can work around this bug, however.

Here is a translated and fixed MIKOFT.BFT (translated graphics taken from MS):

MikoFT.BFT, huh? I figured it might be there, that was the only BFT file I wasn't able to view with AXE.

Well, you've certainly earned a spot in the patch credits. Would you also happen to know where the on-field score numerals are stored?

Took a while to find them, but the on-field numerals are in MAIN.EXE near the end of the file.  You can use YY-CHR in 1BPP mode to edit them.

Hm, I'll give it a shot. Any bugs/unintended changes associated with editing MAIN.EXE with this utility?

And for that matter, can I have a copy of the graphics used by the MS team for this? I'd like for there to be some consistency between games if possible.

EDIT: Well, I did a runthrough with Anex and it didn't violently explode, so I guess it works.

As long as you only edit the in-field numerals or other such things there shouldn't be any issues, unless there's some checksumming code in there or something.  As for MS numerals, they uhh...don't exist...yet.

Is this file to be imported in the next patch for this game? I used editdisk to find this file but it's not there. (my guess is that it's in the main or maine files) I'm just curious, that's all. :3
P.S. I fixed the epic slowness with T98-Next. It was easy. :D

It's in 東方封魔.録, actually. It's basically SoEW's Th##.dat. MAIN and MAINE are the executables used during gameplay and the endings/credits, respectively.

Here's what I did, but it may differ depending on your computer's hardware ( ie, the graphics card, but with your vids, it should be fine)
Under MotherBoard Setting, under CPU, set the Type to i486DX (someone else suggested this but, to me, both options are the same result)
Set Clock to Auto (this is what fixed the slowdown for me so Mima isn't very laggy.
Frame Rate is 1.00 and memory size is the 64 MB.
In the Device Manager, click *GDC.nhw and click Setting. Set the Frame Skip to AUTO, which works for me at the moment.
Everything else should be fine.
Let me know how it works for you and if it doesn't, I'll try to help!
P.S. If it's any help for anyone reading this post, I'm running Windows 7 32 bit with a not that great graphics card. (but it works :D)

EDIT: Never mind about what I said about it working. It WAS working. Now it's worse for whatever reason to where the flower tank is very lagged. Once I figure this out I should make a topic on this and for other emulators since I can figure them out, usually.

Well, it's working again. My solution? I didn't do anything except close it and reopen it several times when I was checking what the buttions did on the net. Weird, guess my computer had a hiccup.
Btw, any chance that the ending credits will be translated too?

Really? That's weird. Although I have noticed with it that it likes to run slow for no reason, and rebooting it works, sometimes. It was running slow for me just now so I don't know. I'm still going to mess around with that post till I get it just right.
Good luck with it though!

I must have bad luck with this game. Seriously.
I changed the files to go back to anex and it was fine. Then went back to next because anex is all choppy today. Now I have a problem again. The game loads up fine, but my rank at the bottom of the menu is blank and the options screen is numbers where they aren't supposed to be. Hitting reset fixed that but my rank is still blank only on the main menu.
Also, when I choose the shot type to start the game, the music fades out, like normal, and that's it. Black screen of nothingness.
What am I doing wrong? I do the same thing every time to change the files and it usually always works.
P.S. I do have AppLocale now.
Update: My rank is back but it's still broken.
Update 2: I got a fresh copy of the game and englished it, it was fine. I imported the HUUHI and HUUMA files and it broke again. Does this mean I have to beat the game AGAIN?!

Update 3 (because I really love updates!): I fixed it. It looks like just the HUUHI is the score since my scores are back and it works fine, I'll just test the endings again.

Yep, the ending is fine! I beat it in the process too with the power type! :)
Well, now we all know how to fix the game when it has a concussion now!

I'm not sure if you already knew about this but one of the conversations is cut off during stage 4. Reimu says "Oh, sorry, Gramps, I guess this is the first time you've met he"

It ends right there, without the r in her. I understand it's a space issue. Unless you could extend that word into the next line because she's still speaking, and there is room there.
I've noticed this for a while now but I keep forgetting to post...

Yeah, it's already been fixed. I still need to do a bit more before I release RC2, it'll probably happen sometime in August.

I guess while I'm at it I'll list some of the known issues in RC1 I can think of off the top of my head here.

* Text is cut off in stage 4 dialogue
* Extremely rare music room crash
* Extra stage score tally is untranslated
* Pointer logic option is untranslated due to space restrictions
* Staff Roll header transcription is incomplete due to space restrictions
* Bad ending 3 is messed up due to a missing linebreak
* HUD and on-field numerals are untranslated
* File corruption can cause Anex to crash when loading endings
* Conflicting uses of Yin-Yang/Ying-Yang, should just be using Yin-Yang
* Music room header formatting is inconsistent with original
