Oh, important to note that I do have Locale Emulator installed and I have run the game using the admin option.
a) Doesn't seem like that locale emulator is working at all, just change your locale manually to japanese if you really want to play
b) Yes we're active, and
c) Less than five minutes are necessary to notice this thread >>229
There's a thread specifically for help on getting fangames to run. You might want to see it in case somebody had the same issue.
Personally, the text from that window tells nothing. There's no japanese message though and that might mean your locale is messed up. I would recommend not using LocaleEmu and just changing your System Locale under the Language options. Nothing really prejudicial happens and your system won't turn ching chong but it will be able to display Japanese text correctly.
Source: Did a Windows 10 clean install recently, changed locale was enough to get .flow running. 2kki needs the RTP though, but .flow works simply with changing your System Locale.
And yes, this place is still fairly active, even though we're mostly the same 10-15 people posting.
Sorry about that, I should have taken a look around. I really appreciate all the help, and it's cool to see at least a small regularly active community still. Thanks!
