The solution to all your Japanese fangames troubles are in this very thread! Links provided.
Implying you read it carefully and do stuff consequtively. Otherwise, it's your problem.
Still post here if something doesn't work.
There we go:
1) Make sure you have Japanese language installed on your system - what the hell are you doing in /fg/ without that anyway?..
In case you're still here w/out it:http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?displaylang=EN&id=8289
But you most probably have it already.
2) Install Applocale - it works both for XP and Win7. http://alcahest.perso.sfr.fr/perso/apploc/applocale.html
There is also a patch and some register keys on the same page, install'em all. Well, when you read that page, it's all pretty obvious.
3) Install Japanese RTP with Applocale - if you've installed all the stuff for AppLoc from the step above, you have to just right-click the RTP installer and click "Locale Japanese". DO NOT LAUNCH IT WITHOUT APPLOCALE. http://www.famitsu.com/freegame/rtp/2000_rtp.html
4) Install 7-Zip http://www.7-zip.org/download.html
This is critical to success! WinRar won't do, it messes up Japanese chars regardless of locale. Most of the time.
5) Run 7-Zip with Applocale - right-click on 7zFM.exe, choose "Locale Japanese". YOU HAVE TO MAKE IT JAPANESE LOCALED EVERY TIME YOU LAUNCH 7-ZIP!
See second post for further instructions.
6) Unpack your fangame with your Applocaled 7-Zip.
You might also need to rename your fangame folder to some English or numeric name if your fangame folder name is in Japanese/scrambled symbols. And for God's sake, make the path to your fangame short, e.g. D:/fg/flow
7) In case there's no executable file in the freshly unpacked fangame folder, download RPG_RT.exe http://www.mediafire.com/?mmk32nn2jtm)
and put it into fangame directory
9) Run RPG_RT.exe with Applocale
9a) If you still got shit and errors, go to CharSet folder inside your fangame folder, copy and paste ANY .png you find there and rename the copy into 乗り物.

(from the locked helpthread)
Thing is is that nobody has ever said that. I've checked all the threads on this board as well as the help threads on the old board. It's either an answer to that certain picture solution or a "fuck you go find it yourself" which doesn't help anything. Whereas you actually provided an answer. I don't read Japanese and the pop-up box doesn't allow me to copy its text for translation. I didn't know those characters had to do with a name error. I'd just figured they had to do with that missing vehicle file because it always seemed that way.
Anyway my error was posted before this was stickied so I'll be re-posting it. I take it something is corrupted? What am I suppose to do?
This is with Sickmind. I already have the vehicle files in there (both English and Japanese) and made sure to unzip with 7-zip.
File: 1320905033871.jpg (92.66 KB, 805x605, fg path.jpg)

what other information would you need?
Google: Can not open file monster

and Atlas says roughly the same thing about some monster 1 file
File: 1321033429896.png (83.5 KB, 778x568, thumbsfile.png)
There is a folder called monster in the sickmind folder. It has a thumbs file in it.
I've re-downloaded it at least 4 times from as many sources as I can possibly find (which seems to be only 2 maybe 3). I got mine from this post >>178
and there are two other links in the sickmind thread on the old board too that I used. After I upzip them they're all the same and none of them work for me. I get the same error from all of them.
Maybe it would be possible for somebody whose game does work to upload their game and see if it's any different from what I've been downloading.
I'll go back and recheck if I did. It's weird every other fangame I have works fine except for this one and I've never ever had a problem playing other Japanese games :/
Also I'm getting problem loading errors when I try to download the Japanese RTP in #3 can't really do anything if it's not letting me download it
I've been downloading the patched version from here: http://loda.jp/henatyoko/

I get this error every time I try to run the fangame "Me", what do?
Gee, get a grip, you're in /fg/, you are required to have that knowledge by default.
Find a "System" folder in your fangame folder or something. There you should see a "system.png". Just copy it, paste in the same folder, rename it to "system2c.png", see if that works.

Here is the error I'm getting.
It appears to be a missing file error. I just don't know what file I'm missing.
Wow, OK, you don't need to get all worked up about it.
Anyways, I found out that Ctrl+A worked, and the error message apparently says "Chip opened the file room."
OK, I guess the program can't read the name of the room chipset, so I have to rename it, is this correct?
Actually, disregard that, I found the problem and I fixed it.

Whoops it's me again kinda forgot about this, and went to start from step 1 and by step 2 I'm already done in. Apparently Applocale wants nothing to do with me and my computer.
I downloaded the file from the source I was suppose to. What the hell went wrong??
File: 1328373042796.jpg (164.27 KB, 1280x800, whatdo.jpg)
This happened. WHAT DO I DO?
If that what you trying to japlocale-launch is the installer of the 7-Zip,
WHY WOULD YOU DO THAT. I do not recall writing that in my guide.
if else, then
Hmm, are you running the RTP either with Applocale set to Japanese, or the computer's language switched to Japanese? Cause you should be doing it one of those ways.
Also, did you restart your PC after installing the language pack? Not sure this is necessary, but it might be, and sure doesn't hurt.
Well I tried restarting; AppLocale is set to Japanese, but my computer won't let me change ANY language setting without a startup disk. And in case you're wondering, yes I'm on a pirated copy of XP.
I've already got .flow and Answered Prayers, are there any more fangames I can play that don't require Japanese?
Well, you may be able to find an .iso of the windows XP startup disc for download somewhere, then use that, though if it's not working even with applocale set to japanese, then I'm not sure that'd help any.
As for Non-Japanese fangames, pretty much anything created by people on these boards ends up using the English version of RPG maker. There's too many to list, so I'd suggest taking a look at the following thread:>>3077
It's usually not too hard to tell whether a FG's something made here or a Japanese one someone's posting if you read the first few posts.

Help me out here guys, maybe I'm just lame, but all I get is this error message. I'm pretty sure I ran everything like this thread says…
1. Download the RPG maker 2000 RTP (Link in step 3 of >>229
2. Install the RPG Maker 2000 RTP THROUGH APPLOCALE, SET TO JAPANESE.
And that should be it! Pretty simple, huh?
In the first place, if you get the ?????? stuff, you've fucked up with either the installation of RTP or the path to your game. Not to mention you should actually get japanese character instead of those question mark, so you basically must've fucked up with the AppLocale.
No need to lead people astray.

Well, because it looks like it's written so strangely (i.e. ｼｽﾃﾑ instead of システム), I'm not sure just copying and pasting from another game would work.
Here's the same file in my version of dayDream (v.0.01) which is named exactly as the missing file your error message shows. Download it, and if its name is messed up name it ｼｽﾃﾑ instead. Then just copy and paste it into the "System" folder in dayDream's main folder (and overwrite/delete the old one)and it should work.

Then I clicked start and I'm getting this error QAQ
Then press Ctrl+C
and then paste the text to Google Translate (or wherever).
It may not highlight, but trust me, when you press Ctrl+C it will copy the text.
It's just sad how people won't read threads even though I specified the way of copying Japanese errors (anonymously, though; a most unwise thing on UC, I guess). I think I also indirectly implied to provide as many specifications of the problem encountered as possible. Oh well.
You fucked up the installation, it seems. Files that are ACTUALLY missing is a rare, delicate problem. You've most probably fucked up the installation. Check the path to ye fangame folder, etc. Try>>4739
it is a move most random and without any connection to anything whatever, but hey, what works, works.
Anyway, finding out how to counter the Japanese-related problems on a PC yourself is one of the greatest and most glorious challenges an average-skill PC-using uboachanner can take on. Asking for help? Fine, that's your choice. Asking twice? Pathetic. Thrice? You do not deserve to be helped, for you cannot even accept that help graciously.

I tried, I REALLY TRIED HARD BUT.
Pic related. When I try to open 2000/2003rtp with Locale Japanese nothing is happening. When without it i've got this 'instalation' window, it has an error at 44th%.
Anyway it can be installed like that but it doesn't work. I translated the message and I've saw this. Wat do? I tried even renaming file.
And yes, I run 7-zip with Locale Japanese and I've got Applocate instaled… good I think.
Dunno wat do. It happens with ultraviolet and nostAlgic.
Try and set your whole PC to Japanese non-unicode language. Forgot to include that in the guide, darn.
I think that trying Applocale on a German system is pants on koala weird, anyway. Y'know, umlauts and stuff, the non-standard characters.

1. Place the AppLocale installer (apploc.msi) in your C: drive.
2. Go to your start menu, type cmd in the search box.
3. Hold down crtl+shift and click on cmd.exe.
4. Select Yes when a dialog asks if you want the program to make chances to your computer.
5. The command prompt should show C:\Windows\System32.
6. Type cd\ and press enter to navigate to the C: drive.
7. Type apploc.msi and press enter, the installer will appear.

Guys >:U I just got 2kki to work after weeks of suffRAGE thanks to this thread. But, I've been getting a few errors.

I'm guessing you have windows Vista or 7 seeing the window frame.
Go to Control Panel > Change keyboard and other input methods (the name might be different because my version of windows is in Spanish so I'm guessing)
Anyway, clicking that will bring up a window with 4 tabs. Click on the last one, should say "Administrative". You'll have an option that says "Language for non-unicode programs". Change it to Japanese. It'll ask you to restart your computer. Do it. Ta-da.
(You might have to re-extract 2kki though)

I don't wanna incur the OP's wrath here. I've followed the top guide to the letter, and read the whole thread. Even so, I can't solve the problem I'm having. ._.;
I'm trying to play sickmind. It loads the title screen just fine but I keep getting the represented error whenever I hit the 'new game' button. The error reads,
"sick mind ver.0.00
Can not open file room"
I've tried to follow everything perfectly. Japanese is installed on my computer, Applocale is installed and was used with 7zip to unzip the game in the first place as well as to run the game, I have the Japanese RTP installed via Applocale as well, the Charset folder already has a 乗り物.png… So, everything's correct. Yet…error. One that I don't really understand either.
I saw elsewhere here that somebody had trouble with a 'room' file error and figured out that they forgot to use an Applocale'd 7zip to unzip their game, which solved their problem. I'm doing this, yet I still get the error…
What I've been doing is right-clicking on 7zFM.exe, choosing Locale Japanese, then opening the game's zip via a double-click from the resulting 7zip window that pops up, before extracting all the game files out.
Or maybe (likely?) I've made some mistake along this. Thanks for any help, and sorry for noobishness.
File: 1351233564833.png (37.14 KB, 659x522, wow.png)
Ignore my previous post, >>6655
. I eventually came to the astounding conclusion that I should perhaps examine the sickmind thread for possible tips. :V
Solved the trouble with the 'room' file, which seemed to be asking for a 部屋.png file in the ChipSet folder; I figured out what png that was exactly supposed to be and added it.
Unfortunately, while this fixed my first problem, I could only move one screen in. Upon pressing any keys when the little (help?) menu appears after starting the game, the game will crash again, this time giving the error "ファイル システム2 は開けません", or "2 file system can not be opened".
Seeing the word system in there, and the fact it happened when I pressed a key, I'd assume there's some problem involving the files in the System folder…something UI-based. Saw earlier that >>4883
was having a similar issue, so I went ahead and logic'd that out, simply put, and I got the game to agree to the fix I did (adding newly-named system2.png files in).
Then I get yet another error next time I turn the game on. Which is what you see on the screenshot. "Door will not open files and chairs" it says.
I'm pretty sure I must've done something completely wrong to get this many file errors in a row, but I don't know what. Any clue?
Again, apologies for my being apparently kind of dumb. :s

You probably want to rename your folder name to something non-Japanese, i.e. NOT "RTP%japanese jumble%".
Judging by how that jumble also makes little sense, you might want to re-install/re-unpack that installer properly.

Hey, I've been trying to open up some Yume Nikki fangames in RPGmaker 2k and 2k3 to see how they work, but I've come across a problem where Japanese text appears as a bunch of symbols.
I've set my system locale to Japanese (I'd done this a long while back to play some Japanese games), installed Applocale, installed Japanese RTPs for both 2k and 2k3, and right clicked + ran the makers as Japanese Locale, but to no avail.
I've taken a few screen shots if it helps.
1 shows how the event editor looks when I open up a Japanese fg in rm2k, I've tried opening it with and without setting Japanese Locale but no difference.
2 shows that the maps of the game when opened in rm2k do show as Japanese characters.
3 shows that games I open in rm2k3 show gibberish.
Does anyone know what to do to fix this?

Downloaded Jap RPG Maker 2000 for game Touhou Mother. Have Japanese language installed. Tried to download AppLocale and for some reason it comes up with this error? Did use 7-Zip. And when run alone, RPG Maker stops at 44%.
Help would be appreciated. <3 Thank you so much for making this thread.
I had a similar problem.
What you have to do is run applocale.msi as administrator.
Sadly you do not have a right click option for that.
so what you do is you open start, type cmd, then right click the
command prompt and open it as administrator.
after that type in the complete directory of where applocale is.
I hope this works, as it did for me
Found the file and renamed it. Still got the same error.
What should i try next?
Thanks for the help by the way.
Never mind, ended up fucking around
a bit with rpgmaker and renaming the
file to an already existing file.
needless to say it distorted some other maps
but at least I was able to watch the endings.
Thanks for the help.
