With maidnaut's help I managed to get it running. Good times are ahead, I'm sure

So, I've tried to download Ver 18, but it gives me a question mark error. I tried to install Applocale form the Microsoft website, but it gives me an error that says "There is a problem with this Windows Installer package. A program required for this install to complete could not be run. Contact your support personnel or package vendor."

Nevermind, go it working.
.Flow error Visk 10/05/14 (Sun) 18:19:43 No. 2685
Hey guys, I`m trying to re-install the .flow 0.18 on my computer and I`m getting the following error…
ファイル 倣倷 は開けません "File copy couldn`t be opened" or something like that. I sincerely don't know what file it is…I even tried using AppLocale, and I'm getting this result….And yes, I changed my system language already
Anonymous 10/05/14 (Sun) 19:52:39 No. 2686
You're missing a file named "copy" (倣倷).
Probably an image.
Why does people always blame AppLocale? It only fucking renders the characters correctly so they look like japanese and tell the computer how to interpretate them. It doesn't affect anything more than that.
>>2686 Visk 10/06/14 (Mon) 02:21:15 No. 2687
Yes I know it's an image, but do you know where exactly it is? And yes, I know that AppLocale only renders the characters, but I tried rendering it in two different languages and I got two different problems: The one I posted, and then I got one problem which showed the directory of the image and it said that a certain name was missing…But I still have no clue what image it is.
Visk 10/06/14 (Mon) 13:58:58 No. 2689
Problem is, when the error which contains the file name pop up, it only shows ??.png
Anonymous 10/06/14 (Mon) 14:07:38 No. 2690
How about this time, try redownloading a clean copy. Maybe your copy got corrupted during download or something.
Visk 10/06/14 (Mon) 14:29:30 No. 2692
True…I downloaded mine from wikia apparently.
Anonymous 10/06/14 (Mon) 17:13:09 No. 2693
Filename is "倣倷", you showed it in your first picture.
Anonymous 01/06/15 (Tue) 02:41:56 No. 2816
ctrl-c it, paste in google translate and post results?
Anonymous 01/06/15 (Tue) 02:56:57 No. 2817 >>2815
You're missing the chipset file for Sabitsuki's room.
Here, I've uploaded it. Save it into your chipset file with the filename intact.

and this is happening in rainbow maze btw in the collection of doors you go through.
Anonymous 01/11/15 (Sun) 09:01:49 No. 2824
Are you playing v0.19? You should download v0.192 and transfer your save file there. v0.192 fixes this bug.
Anonymous 01/11/15 (Sun) 09:03:31 No. 2825
oh i didnt even know that was a thing
Anonymous 01/11/15 (Sun) 09:45:02 No. 2826
Here's the download link for the Japanese version.
I'm afraid I'm not aware of any English translations, so if you want one of those you'll either have to search for one or translate it yourself.
Anonymous 01/11/15 (Sun) 16:45:20 No. 2828
there are translations around somewhere in the board

You're not even saying what the crash error is telling you, how are we supposed to guess what is going wrong with the game?
Anonymous 03/21/15 (Sat) 13:55:36 No. 2906
have you really read the thread? It's literally mentioned 65 times here.
Anonymous 06/20/15 (Sat) 13:32:35 No. 2937
I'm having this problem too.
If it helps to say, it's version 0.192 English, at least in my case. Same conditions, same error message, windows 8.1. If anyone could help it'd be appreciated.
Anonymous 06/20/15 (Sat) 21:50:26 No. 2938
Read the thread, specially the first post.
Anonymous 06/21/15 (Sun) 07:18:00 No. 2939
I got it to work, thank you! (So far at least)
I had read the thread previously but I figured the fixes were for those specific version of the game, such as how the first post was for ver. 15.
All I had to do was run RPG_RT in Applocale after "forcing" Applocale to run on my computer.
Zephry 08/02/15 (Sun) 01:39:17 No. 2973
I'm going to try to download Applocale, but the last time I did-it didn't quite agree with my computer. Is there any other way to fix the error?
Mannosuke 08/02/15 (Sun) 03:34:24 No. 2974
Normally I'd help.
But that is the least descriptive error message >_<
Anonymous 08/02/15 (Sun) 03:57:06 No. 2975
Seems you may have to change your computer's locale to Japanese and redownloading the game.
Zephry 08/02/15 (Sun) 04:18:02 No. 2977
I switched the language to Japanese but now the game freezes for no apparent reason.
I've re downloaded the game twice and the same error has occured.
Anonymous 08/02/15 (Sun) 10:58:35 No. 2978
It would be more helpful if you could post a picture of the error you are getting.
Are you using Windows 7 0 8? If that's the case, you will have to install Applocale through cmd and they use it with administrator privileges every time.
Zephry 08/02/15 (Sun) 12:52:51 No. 2979
The error I was getting before should be in the the <<2972 post. I switched the language to Japanese under control panel. Now though, the game just freezes. I've installed the game under an administrator account? Is that what you mean?
Zephry 08/02/15 (Sun) 14:29:08 No. 2980
Oh! I have Windows 7.
Zephry 08/03/15 (Mon) 16:30:58 No. 2981
Hello! I fixed it now! There were a few files that were miss translated. Thank you for all your help!
Tara 08/24/15 (Mon) 16:18:49 No. 3012
never mind! I fixed it by using the dell menu thing that's mostly used to fix brightness

Win10. Wouldn't work, at least according to 2kki's wiki.
Anonymous 11/25/15 (Wed) 02:57:13 No. 3108
Wait, nevermind. It works NOW, since I'm using Locale Emulator to run it.
.flow and Yume Nikki now both work on my computer, but Yume 2kki won't, because RPG2000RTP won't. Strange.
Anonymous 12/03/15 (Thu) 14:28:11 No. 3113
Yeah, you're missing the vehicle file.
Copy anything inside the folder "charset" and rename it to 乗り物.png
Anonymous 12/03/15 (Thu) 14:34:10 No. 3114
thank you so much, I don't get the error anymore.
On the other hand I just get a blank screen. I'll try in something other than XP maybe.
