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.
Okay. So, I do not have a problem with most fangames I have downloaded, but this happens with Yume Nisshi. I originally had the "vehicle" error, but I fixed it with the picture on imgur that someone posted. Now I have this:
ファイル 忔傝暔 は開けません
Which says I cannot open the file "忔傝 暔". I am at a loss for what to do about this.
I had the same problem as most of you here getting the japanese message popping out and that of course i couldnt understand
Forget about trying to understand what it says, instead try this and you'll never have to see it again !!
Hope it works out for you just like it did for me :D
Have fun playing ^w^
Since it says "english" in the title, I'm assuming whoever uploaded it was autistic enough as to not even check they extracted the files properly.
You're lacking the sprite called "vehicle".
Download attached file and put it in the charset folder.
Does anyone know how to fix the garbled Japanese text problem like in >>7314
? (I only have the garbled text problem, not the menu problem.)
Yes. Perhaps I should try running the games again with my locale manually switched to Japanese…
Can someone please help? I seem to be having a problem. When I start up any RPGmaker 2000/2003-based fangame, the game looks small even in fullscreen mode, yet looks fine in windowed mode. Does anyone know what could be causing this?
Could be a video hardware scaling issue.
Have you tried pressing F5 to work around this? It toggles scaling modes in both fullscreen and windowed.
So whenever I start up a game of Yume Nikki. My controls "lock up." I really can't do anything. Nikki (as I call her) forcibly walks north until she hits a wall. In this case her closet. Trying to move south was a problem.
I tried it with a controller and now she only moves WEST (left). It's even HARDER to move her in any other direction
So I reinstalled the game and still have the same result. Move left, hit a wall, stop.
I really can't play this game.
>>10992>no OS>no game>not even a pic
My best guess is that the feminists took your computer and their worms won't let you play anything involving little girls because that's only for pedoshit. Not only that, the police is going to your house at this very moment: you've been reported as a child molester.
My best advice? Pick up any magnet and shit the HDD, and burn your computer case.
No evidence, no crime.
Advice: Try unplugging any controllers you have, maybe even temporarily disabling any associated drivers while you're at it. That's a common problem with RPG Maker games.
Also, her name's Madotsuki. (nikki = diary)
This isn't /yn/, and that question was already made in its corresponding thread.
Lurk more, ffs.
Okay, so.. I already searched this post, and I couldn't find anything relevant to what i'm about sooo.. hopefully this won't bring about a shit storm of angry people who are really good at computers bashing me
so, I just recently finished Yume Nikki, loved it, and i want to play .flow
i downloaded the latest version in English and installed it. after starting it, the graphics on the very first start screen are distorted, and when i choose start, it takes me to a black screen with only the protagonist, the graphics are still distorted, and when i press the button to move along the dialogue, the whole thing crashes
i've already tried googling it, but so far i've found nothing
Note: just got a new computer and haven't had the time to downgrade yet, so i'm running windows 10
i hope someone can help me, and if they do, then i'd like to thank you beforehand
Funny thing is, that's the way it looks with Locale Emulator. I just tried re-installing AppLocale and using that to run it, and I get super moonrunes in an error message.
This is one of those things I'll need to switch locales for, huh?
It's called mojibake.
You don't just have to run the game with applocale, but also the file extractor and everything else.
And yes, if possible, change your locale, it doesn't really affect much things actually in your system actually.
Oh, I didn't even know it HAD a name. Thanks, mang.
Well, alright I guess I'll do that. Do I have to keep it in the Japanese locale every time I want to run it if this works?
Depends. Do you understand japanese? If you don't then there's no real any difference between reading mojibake and japanese. However, if you actually want to see moonrunes instead of garbage, then yes; if applocale fails, you will have to set the system language to japanese and test if it works.
Again, it doesn't really affect much on windogs since the main language of the system will still be the one it came with from installation. Some special characters (Accented vowels: á, à,é, è, ô, ü, ö, etc) will be rendered as kanji or kana or other oriental symbols, but if your mother language doesn't use those then you will find almost 0 problems. Setting it permanently to japanese may be a wise choice if you run many programs with that encoding.
Well, you guys definitely solved the problem!
Call me weird for this but I'd much rather see the Japanese than just a garbled mess.
But yeah, makes installing things a whole lot easier. Thanks for the help, guys!
Hey, was having trouble getting the RTV zip to extract on Windows 8 but no matter what I did it kept coming out as mojibake- even with jp system locale and running 7zip/winrar in Applocale. Anyway, this guy helped me out and explained that it was somehow being caused by it being a .zip, so he re-packed the RTV as a .7z and gave it to me. Fixed the mojibake, so I'd recommend it to anyone having trouble extracting the official .zip RTV (not sure what the best place to upload this would be, but I can mirror it somewhere else if anybody wants):https://www.dropbox.com/s/3tbqw4ua2z1p84t/RTPSetup.7z?dl=0
I ran .flow on a virtual desktop with Windows XP, the machine was set up locale Japanese, it worked well.
Hi. Getting an error with Yume Nisshi where the game opens, but it just stays on a black screen. Happens with both Eng and Jap versions. No error. Cause?
same poster here. fixed problem by replacing the rt_rtp.exe with yume 2kki's.
What is it with /fg/ makers leaving out required assets (system2a, vehicle, etc.)?
Its not done on purpose, is it?
They're on the RTP they have installed, so when they test it they see no problems.
That's why having testers is important.
Did you install japanese fonts for wine? I had a similar problem before.
Failed to start the game.
Please, execute directly ゆめ２っき\RPG_RT.exe
How do I run WolfRPG games in Full Screen?
I press F4 but it only makes the screen a little bigger without being Full Screen
when did you guys start learning moonrunes, did Yume Nikki or it's fangames made you do that?
i'm currently learning the kana (i figured out the hiragana in 2 days, im currently learning katakana) and it just awes me how people do something so great for something so minor, great source of inspiration
sorry if its a bit too much /ot/ for /fg/
F11 and Alt+Enter are also common keypresses to fullscreen a window. Not sure if they'll apply here.
I am a maniac for PC-98 games, it's either learn or don't enjoy anything. I've been learning since 8 years or so, but I started to study ACTIVELY over the past 2 years, I still have problems with kanji but rikaichan usually fix that.
YN games have baby tier japanese, all you need to know is kana plus the most common game words in japanese (get, start, continue, quit), and some basic vocabulary. Really, it's not really that much.
Polite sage for off-topic.
I downloaded the applocale from a different link, wouldn't run on Windows 7. Got an error half way through installing it. The link for the Japanese language didn't work, not available anymore. What do?
the guide is worthless
all you ACTUALLY need to do is just set your system locale to Japanese (read: system locale, not download app locale for windows xp) and download the japanese RPG 2000 RTP if your playing 2kki.
that's literally all
you don't need to set language to Japanese lol
Cam back to play some YN but now I cant
Getting dderr errors no matter what compatibility settings I get
Is there no hope of playing this again
Im on Win10 by the way
I don't think there's a way to fix that. Just play on windowed mode. Windowed is better anyway.
After looking a bit more into it, it seems that the problem is that fullscreen mode resizes stuff using bicubic as opposed to nearest neighbor. Not that I know how I'd go about changing that, but I just figured it would be good to know.
I want to run .flow on Android using an app called EasyRPG, it runs RPG Maker 2000 games, and works very well with Yume Nikki. However, I cannot figure out how to get .flow to work on my phone, as it has the same locale problems as always, and there don't seem to be any extractors on Android that could remedy this. Please help!
Never mind, I fixed it. For anyone who wants to play fangames using EasyRPG, see this guide:https://community.easyrpg.org/t/yume-nikki-fangames/173
