TH08 – Imperishable Night


(English pre-patched: For proper font display, you should go to the “Regional & Languages” menu, and install East Asian Language files from the the “Languages” tab. I don’t recommend you set your unicode to Japanese though, as the text may get cut off in the text boxes.) 

(Note: The BGM is switched to “off” by default. Turn the BGM on in the options menu.)

    what program do i use to open

    • FiQiZ 25 February 2012 at 6:15 pm #

      Use hjsplit program to combine all parts of the file and then extract the game by using winRAR or 7zip.

      When you’ve downloaded all 5 parts, Put them in new folder on your desktop. The original file was broken into smaller pieces, so you need to combine them. Use the program hjsplit.
      When you open this program, hit “join”, hit input and find the folder. It should only see the first file, that’s OK. On output, make sure to just extract desktop, not the input folder. It will take a while.
      Once completed, use the program WinRAR to extract to another folder. It should be labeled IN. Once completed, open the folder and there will be different file types, scroll down to the file called “TOUHOU8.IN.ENGLISH.TRANSLATION.PATCH.v1.0-NDT” then execute it. You will have to install the patch in the same folder as your game. Hit “install”, cmd will pop up askin about a restore/backup or something. Just hit “y” then wait a while, then it will be done. Then open the game folder and execute “th08”. Enjoy!!!:D

      When you have all 5 parts, use the program “hjsplit” to combine the pieces. When you open hjsplit, hit “join”, then hit “input”, find the folder with all the parts. Only the first zip file should be showing, but that’s OK.
      Then on “output”, just select the desktop, and all the parts will be combined into one folder there.
      When that’s completed, use WinRAR,then extract it to “IN” ( that should be the file name),then open the folder and go down the list of files and find “TOUHOU8.IN.ENGLISH.TRANSLATION.PATCH.v1.0-NDT”. Double click it and you will be in the english patch installation menu. “Note” in order for the English patch to work, you need to install it in the same folder as the game itself, otherwise it will not work. Hit “install”, then cmd will pop up asking about a restore/ backup or something. hit “y” for yes, then wait a couple of minutes then it will say “finished, press any key to continue. Do so and cmd should disappear then go into the game folder and find “th08” application to run the game in English. Enjoy!!!:D

      Here’s the way I do it: I create a file folder, then download all the files. I then extract them in order (lowest to highest numbers) into the previously mentioned file folder. When it asks if I want to overwrite, I press yes.

      This method seems to work for me.

    • Akua 14 September 2013 at 2:35 pm #

      To shoot press Z. You can’t change the controlls, The controlls are only for the gamepad.

    This Touhou game has really sticky controls compared to the others…

    • KESL 16 October 2015 at 2:58 pm #

      “Sticky”? What do you mean?

  9. JS 25 February 2013 at 3:42 am #

    anyone know where we can get this game without the patch? I want to play it in Japanese but everywhere I go the game is patched.

    • Lance Lnc 25 May 2017 at 9:04 pm #

      In the game folder, put the files to display in alphabetical order, you will get some files with the same name, but with the extension “.bak”, That’s the original files without patch.
      Just rename the patched files to something like “.bakPatched” after the extension,
      And rename the “.bak” files, deleting their “.bak” extension from the name.

    T~T I’ve downloaded my IN game on media fire and there were 5 files. But when I extracted it with no problem and patched it, there was no bgm.. Please reply on how to fix this, or give me a link of a working IN game.

    • holy 15 April 2013 at 9:31 am #

      Download it again, it links to mega now.

    If your controls are acting strange, open the application ‘custom’, go to the bottom of the window and increase the number for ‘pad left/right/up/down play’. I recommend making the value 500, but it’s your game.
