>>>/flow/2821>Repeated "Not Implemented" Error into the Bottom Right Corner
The same will actually happen in a lot of RPG Maker games like certain versions of Yume Nikki and Ib, and I've even heard of it happening for a GTA title.
This is a common problem for Europeans and Koreans because Microsoft distributes a stripped down version of Windows to those regions to comply with antitrust regulations. These are differentiated from the Windows images released to the rest of the world by being called N or KN version of Windows (e.g. Windows 10 N).
The N/KN versions of Windows don't ship with Windows Media Player or any of its libraries, which means they can only handle WAV files (and probably not all variations of them, at that). Some applications, like games, rely on Windows Media Player's libraries to play specific filetypes. Filetypes include MPEG (.mp3), AAC (.aac), and FLAC (.flac).
If you're winning Solitaire with "Not Implemented", you probably can't play MP3 files. Do you have Windows Media Player installed? If not, when the game tries to play the following songs in the Music folder, it's going to crash:
Crashing every time you enter a certain map? You can check with online resources like the wiki to see if you're opening one of these music files when you enter the map.
There are two workarounds:
> 1) Install Microsoft's Media Feature Pack
To install the Media Feature Pack for your version of Windows, right click Start, select System. Note the version number (4 digits). Copy that number and look for the matching Media Feature Pack on Google. Obviously, only download/install it from microsoft.com.
This is not necessarily the link you will use but it is a sample, and this particular link worked for me. You have to match the patch with your build number, and make sure you have the latest patch for that build number. Usually it will say on the top of the page if a later patch is available.https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4016817/media-feature-pack-for-n-edition-of-windows-10-version-1703-april-2017
>2) Replace the MP3 files with WAV files
Alternatively you may have some luck converting those files to WAV files and and replacing them. Here is a link to a zip file containing all the MP3 music files converted to WAVs:https://u.teknik.io/35zIN.zip
You're going to have to delete the MP3 files from the data/Music folder and drop the WAV files in before testing it out. I haven't personally tried with this game but it used to work with Yume Nikki.===========================>>>/flow/2972>???? , □™, ?????? error at start of game or similar
Installing AppLocale isn't well supported on newer versions of Windows anymore. Locale Emulator seems to work without any issues for me (Windows 10 N).
Here are the steps I just followed:
1) Installed RPGMaker runtime from here:http://www.rpgmakerweb.com/download/additional/run-time-packages
Note, you don't have to sign up for the mailing list. Right below the blue "Download Now" button is blue text that says, "If you have already joined the mailing list, please click here to download the RTP." Just click on that.
I've installed all of them over the course of time, but I think the one you need is RPG Maker 2003. Not sure though.
2. Installed the latest version of Locale Emulator from here:https://github.com/xupefei/Locale-Emulator/releases
3) Unzipped the English version of .flow 0.192 from here:http://dotflow.wikidot.com/downloads
4) Right clicked flow.exe, hovered over the "Locale Emulator" option (orange L), and selected the first option: "Run in Japanese" (purple L).
That's it! I was able to get past the initial hurdle of the game crashing almost immediately but I'll most likely be playing through the game in the next few days, so I'll let you guys know if I run into any snags.
