Site Logo


Welcome to AFCDTech, Andrew Fan/Sparen's Github Pages Site!

Welcome! This site was made in order to showcase and advertise projects that I, Andrew Fan (known as Sparen elsewhere on the internet) have made, as well as promote knowledge and usage of the scripting engine and associated language of Touhou Danmakufu ph3. Here you will find my projects, my services for the Danmakufu community, and my tutorials + documentation backups for Touhou Danmakufu ph3.

My primary services for the Touhou Danmakufu community are my script video series DNHArt/DNHLP, the Contest Database and related data visualization tools, and the Danmakufu Video Database. These can be accessed via the sidebar.

If you're looking for my Danmakufu projects, my official Project Release Thread on Maidens of the Kaleidoscope can be accessed at: Sparen's Code Dump. The Projects link in the main navigation area links to an overview of a number of my projects, including my Open Source projects hosted on Github.

  • It's that time of year again! Maintenance time!
  • Finally got around to removing type="text/javascript" from all files using JS so that the HTML validators will stop complaining.
  • Added Very Flavorful Alt Text (TM) to Ph3 Tutorials - Unit 3 Lesson 30
  • Lots of removal of <center>, fixing weird bugs, replacing deprecated <img> attributes, etc.
  • Significant refactoring of Contest Database internals. Code readability probably improved by an order of magnitude.

Here are today's updates:

  • Overhauled the main navigation system and cleaned up a lot of legacy HTML. Mobile should be fixed for most of the website, though the ph3 tutorials and documentation still maintain their sidebar and will continue to do so for now.

Aug 01, 2019

Here are today's updates:

  • Added BHE to Contest Database, which now has a new Table of Contents system that requires less scrolling. I may also improve the JavaScript powering the thing, but that comes later.

Jul 11, 2019

Here are today's updates:

  • Update to Ph3 Tutorials - Lesson 8. Added details about the collision property of shotsheet definitions. (thanks to Drake).
  • Replaced the site logo. It was intended to be animated, but having such a battery-draining operation running on every page would have been counter-productive, so for now we have a PNG of one of the frames of the animation.
  • Minor restructuring of Danmakufu section of Projects page. Also began the long process of backing up important content from MotK to this website due to the constant deterioration of MotK.

Here are today's updates:

  • Fixed documentation for ObjSprite3D_SetSourceDestRect (thanks to Naudiz).
