Touhou Updates:

I'm just dropping by to drop these in my own yard.

Anyway, you can find the M-1 script in my website as always. Ahhhh... I wanted to do this yesterday 09/09/09 but something came up that prevented me from doing so.

Blender 3D: Touhou Flanned Band

Okay, this and random kinds of work is what's taking my time. Don't have much to say except I still need to improve my rigging.

This was the outcome.

And like always, done using every basic method. Anyway, I wanted to add some flashy stuffs but SLOW PC is SLOW. Not to mention, this single scene (frame) actually took around 20 minutes to render in my Sempron 2400+, GEForce4 MX440 128bit/mb, 512mb memory (yeah, I added another 256mb). I tried it on my brother's Core2DUO and it rendered 5x faster... that's where I finally realized I really should be replacing this one in order to move forward. Next, I'll try to make a longer video, probably a music video (using every basic methods to death again). Geh... I don't know what to do anymore! Anyway, Gonna use this as Desktop Wallpaper for a while :3

Before I forget again!

DISCLAIMER: Aside from the rigging, I didn't make the model. It's from Teatime's Love Death 2's Touhou MOD.

You can find their website here, beware though, it's Japanese and NOT SAFE FOR WORK

Break on my Break

Some random stuff

I'll be gone for a while but I'll try to finish Hourai Teruyo before that. (I hope)


My brother made this in SIM and I went WTF?! because it looked 80% like me, even the physique resembles mine.

Touhou M-1 Grandprix: Witch Doll Tournament Finals

I'll just leave this here.

And as always, the script is in my crappy website

I wanted to add something else, like Blender stuffs but I haven't really improved that much yet. I should probably try modeling my messy room and see how far I can get to.

Anyway, have fun!

Blender Foundation: Minor News

The kids are out tonight and they're looking for someone to play with. I don't mind but, I don't want to play with a huge ball of energy and I definitely don't want to play with Starbow Break with matching full moon.

Anyway, I figure out how to rig but I still can't figure out how to do complex rigging. Sigh... I still have a lot to learn, not to mention animation (woot! it rhymes!) They look like figurines for some reason. I'll probably be stuck with modeling for some time.

Now, for something much cooler... Sound Horizon again!

Blender Foundation: Remilia Skirtless Model

This is actually my first try on using a different software for 3D Rendering/Modeling and all I can say is... Wow! There's so much difference between an actual 3D Renderer vs CAD Software with 3D rendering features. Anyway, if you're wondering, she's Remilia Skirtless... sorry for the horrible pun...? The two low profile characters from behind are Shizuha Aki and Minoriko Aki and as a fan of the later series (TH6 and so on), I should at least know that they are from Touhou 10: Moutain of Faith.

Love Hina: Hinata Inn Half-Life CS Map

Other screenshots can be found here

And so, another random update. Anyway, as always, I've found another unfinished work as I was organizing some things in the house. I did this map years ago, maybe around 2003~2004? Took me about (3 hours a day * 2 to 4 months) to make it. I've forgotten the last time I worked on it but the compile time took half a day using my old PC. The only thing I remember is that I didn't bother finishing Hinata Inn's facade because I couldn't figure out how to do an arc on QuArK without messing a lot of things in the map. Even now, a little bit of tweaking (adding arguments) in the compile program is needed to build the map.

I just finished the facade a while ago and updated the map. It took me 2 days to get used to QuArK again because I haven't used it since 2004. Things I basically wanted to add was HINT brushes to reduce the poly count being rendered but I still couldn't figure out how to properly add it... not to mention, HLVIS crashes everytime I include the HINT brushes in the things to compile even though I remember that I didn't had the problem before. I was forced to abandon that idea in the end. Some other things I wanted to add in the map were furnitures but I decided to abandon that as well. I played this map before with someone using an old PC and all I can say is it was somewhat slow... probably because there are a lot of visible stuffs that needs to be rendered on screen, specially the front of the house. But anyway, that was before and also using a phased out PC with a slow video card. I just tried this newly compiled map with an Intel Atom and built-in Intel GME945 Graphics PC... yup, it's a slow PC but I can rest assure you that the map is playable with such a low spec. So... why am I posting this? The only reason I have is that some mapper might get interested, take over and optimize the map and add stuffs other the ones I had in mind, and off course, to inform that there's a fan-made Hinata Inn map in existence (even though not much would care.) Anyway, questions and comments about the map are welcome.

Before I forget, these are the only arguments I added in the compile program.

HLVIS -full -estimate
HLRAD -chop 80 -estimate

HLVIS took 2+ hours to finish while HLRAD probably took around an hour using the specification I mentioned but I'm not sure how it will turn out to a much faster PC.

Anyway, you can download the map here

And this is for those interested in tinkering or updating or optimizing the map or exporting it to different games (not really sure if that would work though)

And for those who don't know how to open the source map or wanna try the life of a mapper

How to Sub Videos

Another update but I don't think it's that important. Anyway, I've been asked a lot of times how do I translate these stuffs, what software am I using to subtitle the videos. Actually, there are a lot of software you can use to subtitle your videos, commercials and freewares. Although, the most famous one is of course, the fansubber's choice, Aegisub + VirtualDub + VSFilter. These are all the neccessary things you need for the subtitling. The procedure is easy! Just follow the manual then you’re all set! Just Kidding! Anyway, if you’re not yet familiar with these software, you can visit their website here.

VSFilter.vdf (put this on your VirtualDub's plugin folder)

I’ll try to make this as simple as possible. First, download this two freeware software then of course install them. Then after that, google or yahoo or browse for Aegisub tutorial >_<
I’m not good at explaining, so I’ll just guide you to the easiest way to learn how to do this subtitling thing.

But anyway, if you think subtitling seems to be interesting, it's free to try. You might learn something new.

Touhou: Youmu Desu... Love Death 2

Some minor update... anyway, I found this nice video of a nice song about jealousy. I'm pretty sure there are Touhou versions of this as well. I'm actually a fan of this group. They make good story songs.

Artist: Sound Horizon
Album: Elysion
Song name: Stardust

But anyway, that's not really my main purpose for posting... after a long time, I... as if anybody care... anyway it's not some Touhou M-1 Stuffs but it's still some Touhou stuffs.

You can find the nicovideo in this link *here*

Anyway, that's all...

About DGreater1

First things first…

I’m Rizaldo M. Ibarra, born November 7, 1982. A simple minded realistic/idealist Filipino. My hobbies are ever changing but right now, my world concentrates on WORK and a little bit of time for Touhou and CLANNAD. My aim is to become a successful NEET! Okay, don’t get me wrong… I’m not talking about the NEET that has a negative connotation but a NEET that is really successful. Just because you’re a NEET doesn’t mean you’re in the lowest pits. Anyway, if you don’t know what I mean, figure it out yourself. I have a simple Youtube channel about Touhou. You can see that I’m a Japanese to English translator but actually, I’m not that confident about my skill (very slow and needs dictionary all the time to do translations).

DGreater1 is actually a nickname I found around 1998. Its history is very simple as you can see. Around that time, I usually play arcade games, PC games (Half-Life: Counter-Strike, Warcraft II, Starcraft, Red Alert II, etc.) I've been playing against strong opponents in PC games and I have random game names I use. One day, I saw a Counter-Strike game player that has a nick "DGreat1". He seems to be a good player so I decided to watch him. After some few minutes, another player joined by the name of "DGreatest1". and pounded that "DGreat1" player, making himself TOP on the ranking. As I was about to leave after seeing some of the game, someone invited me to play. I used some random nick that time and pounded "DGreat1" and "DGreatest1" who are on the same team. Thrash talks begun after a while but they couldn't deny the fact that I'm really pounding the two. And so we continued playing in a riot. As the game got more intense, one of my team mate suddenly said "Are they really GREAT? You seem to be GREATER than them". I suddenly got an idea from that comment so I changed my nick to "DGreater1" and then made a comment "DGreat1 has bowed down to the DGreatest1 but, DGreater1 has appeared." Everyone laughed out their ass at my comment. Later on, I thought that the DGreater1 nick seems to be a unique name so I used it every time up until now.

Anyway, enough with my Unique Nick and move to some weirder topic.

I'm sure Filipino people are familiar with my name and will think "Wow, Rizal and Ibarra together, that sure is a connection."

Hahahaha! If you think that's the only connection, you'd be freaking surprise if I tell you that I'm the second son in my family and my birthday is 7th of 11. You don't get it? Trivia Time!

Dr Jose Rizal - National Hero of the Philippines

Dr Jose Protacio Rizal was born in the town of Calamba, Laguna on 19th June 1861. The second son and the seventh among the eleven children of Francisco Mercado and Teodora Alonso.

Let me also add... Crisostomo Ibarra is actually my UNCLE! Hahaha! I'm not kidding! I'm freaking serious here!
I'm just about the same size as him 5'2~3"
Some say I kinda look like him. (when my hair is in standard style)
I like making stories. (unfinished stories hahahaha!)
I understand at least three languages due to the nature of wanting to understand that language.
I'm a Makabayan=Patriot (probably?)
A Realistic Idealist
If I die at the age of 35 then that would be a FU#!@NG FUNNY COINCIDENCE! Okay, let's hope that doesn't happen.

Anyway, I hope that gives you a little idea who I am.


I’m not really sure why I did this (made a blog) but I think it’s probably because I want to do or experience something new. I’m not really sure if I’ll maintain this “something new” but if I do, I’ll probably post things I do IRL or here in the Net (even though I don’t really have much time to do this). Anyway, I’m completely new to this thing but for now, I think I’ll try to figure how to do this thing and see if I’ll be able to persevere. Also, sorry about my cranky English.
