Ver. 10 English Locale (
Ver .15 (
HOW TO MAKE VER. 15 WORK ON YOUR COMPUTER:
1) Go to Control Pad, into Regional and Language Options. Go to the Languages Tab and be sure that "Install East Asian files" is checked.
2) Download Applocale (
Then set it up on your computer.
3) Download .flow ver. 15 if you haven't already.
4) In the CharSet folder, duplicate a file and rename it 乗り物.
5) Now download this RPG_RT .exe file: (
and put it in the main folder with all the maps and such.
6) Run Applocale and select the above .exe file. Choose the bottom-most language (Japanese).
7) In the set-up thing, save the RPG_RT as a shortcut, rename it dotflow ver15 or something, so you don't have to do the step-by-step thing again and again.
8) You can now play .flow ver 15!

I was on my way to get all of the GET boxes and I died from the blood cell demons. I sort of thought you were supposed to catch them all (I'mâ€¦ stupid) and I collapsed into a mess.
Do I have to start the GET quest all over again?

Nop, once you got a GET (ehehe) box you "carry" it with you until the end of the game, no worries.

Get a better anti-virus. the .flow ver 10 english locale has absolutely no viruses on it.
Also, I'm stupid, in the installation guide I forgot to post "REMOVE STRANGE SYMBOLS FROM FOLDER NAME".
If you have any troubles I suggest do that if you haven't already.
Where is post editing ability.

I guess you should wait until sleeping is implemented in .flow then.
Wait, I mean that's apparently a pretty system-specific error with RM2k - I remember getting it in one room on Yume2kki on my main Windows XP partition, but not getting it anymore on my test Windows 7 partition. What's worse, reinstalling the RPG Maker RTP doesn't seem to change anything.
In other words: it is a mystery

Here they write about a problem with this keyboard where some keys appear to be stuck sometimes.
So if the game works with a simple keyboard, then check the serial number of your Lycosa.

Now I really have no idea what this could be.
Obviously, something is constantly sending signals to directinput. This could be a fake game controller (none of these are "installed" on your system), or a faulty keyboard (I doubt that your older keyboard is defective as well, so neither is this the case).
But since now I'm very curious about this, I'll keep on looking for some kind of solution.

That keyboard still intrigues me, so start over again: unplug the Lycosa, plug in the old keyboard, then do a cold restart (turn off the machine, wait about a minute, then turn it on), and tell us what happens.

Have you tried the cold restart?
Because the problem is either the keyboard, or a nonexistent controller. If it still doesn't work after restarting the system with the old keyboard, show us a screenshot of your device manager…

That's not an English Locale like V10 or Yume Nikki V10.
English Locale does not need AppLocale or any stuff like that - all you need to do is install the game, then click the .exe to run it.

We've read eveerything there, and… yeah, i actually tried to play Saya's translated version before you linked me there.
I don't care if the game is translated or not, all i need is a Locale Version just because i want to play it, the one you install and it doesn't require AppLocale and such.
I'd help if i could to make a Locale Version of 0.15, but i don't even know what to do.
Is there any way to contact the dude who made the last locale version? Just to know what he did or which software he used, not specifically to ask him to make V15 locale.
Anonymous 12/22/11 (Thu) 17:44:06 No. 502
To make a localed version, you need to change every filename so it doesn't have any japanese (or otherwise foreign) characters, then assign them to everything in RPG Maker.
It's a real pain in the ass. I tried.

No, all Saya did was translate the in-game text.
If you saved it in an English RPG Maker I
it would resolve the need for Applocale, but I haven't tried it so I can't confirm.

For anyone who had the " Not Implemented Error " I have fixed it for myself and this fix might work for you.
You need to go into the .flow music folder and convert .flowbeet,bgm6,bgm8,bgm13,bgm19,fc bgm, fc bgm3,lainbow2,naminooto,olg to Wave. After you do that the game shouldn't crash anymore and the songs will still play properly.

Folks with Arrow Key problems:
- Run game - Disconnect all USB Devices (save mouse and keyboard) - Reconnect each device one by one while the game is running to determine what is the cause of the problem. OR - Disable Bluetooth or disconnect whatever device manages Bluetooth. Had this problem on 2 Win 7 machines. Popping out my Bluetooth adapter solved it for my desktop and disabling Bluetooth for my netbook. Game works fine for both now. I've read some people need to disable their wifi devices if bluetooth is integrated.

Anonymous 04/02/12 (Mon) 22:21:30 No. 1370
Start over again, uninstall all RTPs you have, and reinstall the ones from Famitsu. I'm sure there's a conflicting, unofficial RTP installed on your system.

Anonymous 04/02/12 (Mon) 23:14:19 No. 1373
The text is wrong because you didn't configure your system to use Japanese for non-unicode apps.

Like I said, it's fine until you get in bed to save. I don't think it has to do with the locale, that seems fine.
I should amend my earlier comment; there *is* an error message, but not from RPG maker; rather, there is a general Windows error message saying that RPG-RT has stopped working; do you want to close the program/look for solutions.
Anonymous 04/04/12 (Wed) 15:28:17 No. 1402
And, the problem occurs only and always with the bed/saving, as far as I can tell. I've tried walking around worlds, picking up effects, interacting with things, and that's all fine. But, every time I've run the program, it freezes when I try to save.

Alright then, I'll look into the event. Can you tell me exactly when does it crash? As in, is it when you lie down, when you try to enter the save screen or when you actually select the file where you want to save?

No, actually, it freezes when the circle has not quite completely shrunk, so you don't hear olg.mp3 at all. It's more or less right after the sound effect for getting into bed has finished.

Talk to your bookcase and see if you can access the save screen

I believe the problem is the MP3 file. Maybe you have some sort of program that loads to play MP3 files and conflicts with RPG Maker games. I'll need you to do one last thing to verify this, and then I can make a custom event
Try to play Shinsoku Neko. If you are able to play it (and hear the song), open olg.mp3 and see if it opens up alright. Tell me the results
Anonymous 04/05/12 (Thu) 02:23:05 No. 1415
Shinsoku Neko also crashes it; I hadn't thought to try playing it before since I am terrible at it. But if it's an mp3 problem, why do other BGMs work? I don't know much about this at all…

Most are on a .wav format, you see. If it's universal then it's a bit more complex, I'm afraid. Try downloading a codec pack, I use CCCP and have no trouble. Get it, install it, and try Shinsoku Neko

v0.17 is out already, check the thread made by Kozato
I've looked at several threads made by people having the same problem. It's most likely related to your sound drivers/codecs/anything in between
First, update your sound card drivers. I can't tell you the link to them since I don't know what sound card you have
Next, download and install the following programs
If nothing else works, download Audacity, open the mp3 files and re-save them as mp3, and check if it works (Shinsoku Neko's BGM is called "fc bgm.mp3", if you want an easy way to test this)
Hopefully one of these steps will solve your problem, but do let me know if they still don't
Anonymous 04/06/12 (Fri) 00:48:26 No. 1441
Okay, I'll try that. But also, now that I know the problem is the wav/mp3 thing, if it doesn't work I can just convert the mp3s to wavs! Brute force, and spatially inefficient, but I tested it with one file and it works.
Thanks for all your patience and help!
That Guy !/aPzExRzGw 04/06/12 (Fri) 01:14:56 No. 1442
It does work, yes, but does the game immediately recognize those new .wav files?
I was thinking about modifying all the areas that had mp3 files to wav (because, on their BGM settings, it explicitly says "olg.mp3" , for instance) and uploading them as a last resort, but if the game automatically fetches a .wav file with the same name then it might be simpler do convert them all, yes
And you're very welcome, glad I could help

Open Applocale -> Next
Launch an application -> "Browse…" and select .flow's RPG_RT.exe -> Next
Language of the application: -> Scroll down and select the very last option -> Next
Create a shorcut so you don't have to repeat this process, and press finish. Your menu should look like my pic

Right - I've actually successfully installed .flow version .15 prior and thoroughly enjoyed it.
Attempting an encore with the installation of version .17 has me wracking my brain. I believe there's an English rendition up on DotFlowWiki at this point, if anyone's curious as to playing outside of Weeaspeak. Anyways, I'm failing and failing and failing again to run version .17 I've tried running Applocale, which is curious in the sense that it says it "Cannot Launch" things like RPG2000 and despite having Weeaspeak working a-okay and having set everything possible to "Japan," everything seems to explode into Mojibake one I open a installer. If no one else is having this probably, I can be readily convinced that it's my SEAFARING BANDITed OS.

Japanese RPG Maker 2000 RTP (or just the Japanese RPG Maker 2k). This was said IN THIS VERY THREAD, mind you. All I did to know how to help you was just scroll up a bit. (the screenshot was identical lol)
Also, did you extract the game using an Applocale'd 7zip? This is important.

To anyone experiencing the glitched menu text problem (as pictured), please go down the following list:
1) Install the RTPs for Japanese RPG Maker 2000 and 2003.
2) Check that either your system locale for non-Unicode applications is set to Japanese or that AppLocale is installed and is running the game correctly.
3) Replace the RPG_RT.exe in the game directory with another one.
An appropriate RPG_RT.exe and the installers for AppLocale and the 2000 and 2003 Japanese RPG Maker RTPs are all included in this download:
I *think* the RPG_RT.exe files may have some sort of internal locale, and using an English RPG_RT.exe (such as the one from the English version of Yume Nikki) with a Japanese fangame (such as a non-translated .flow) may cause problems such as this.
If anyone thinks that I should add more files to the above collection of RTPs and whatnot, please let me know and I'll get a new file up ASAP.

I *think* it would require renaming all of the Japanese files and replacing their references, since the localized executable probably uses one of those pre-Unicode encodings like Windows-1252, and renaming the RTP references to those of the localized version. Not sure though. Can't find the translated version 0.10 to see what they did to get it to work with the English localized executable.

Simple string comparison for the internal variables and such probably wouldn't break with the wrong encoding, but when it tries passing something like that to fopen bad things happen. That would explain why just dropping the English executable into a Japanese game directory gives you the error about not being able to find a file with a garbage name.

I tried downloading this version, and needless to say, it didn't work. Everything works perfectly up until the opening scene. All it does is shift the sprite around a bit while making static noises. Is this part of the game and I'm just dense, or am I missing a file somewhere?

I'd say try every button that makes Sabi go left
From my own experience, I have a semi-faulty volume control slider on my laptop, and sometimes it sends wacky keyboard commands instead. During .flow and Y2kki this meant that the Menu button was always pressed, and I couldn't actually press it again until I released it
None of this would have mattered to the discussion if the button I had to press was X, but in fact I had to press like V or B or whatever (which also opens the menu). Took me one hell of a long time to find out
So try pressing the 4 on your numpad too, and if possible find out if there are any other default Left Movement keys on RPG Maker 2000 games and try those. You might get lucky
Anonymous 02/04/13 (Mon) 00:22:33 No. 2193
You will have to install Eastern Languages support or Japanese language pack on your computer. You will also need AppLocale, so try to find out how to get past whatever error you're having. You should also extract .flow using an AppLocale'd 7zip
These are the steps I follow all the time and it always works what I do and it always works

1. Install Applocale
2. Install Japanese RPG Maker 2003 something thru the japanese Applocale.
3. Notice you don't have Japanese language installed, and yer' CD is long time lost.
4. Search on Microsoft site
5. Notice that these fuckers deleted it.
6. Jump off your balcony, cus you can't play most of Fangames.
At least, that's what i did…

Search better then. It can be found on places other than Microsoft's site, though it's a bit trickier to find. I don't have any links handy unfortunately, but I think I remember the thing I needed to search for and download was called an "East Asian Language Pack", or something along those lines.

If you download HF pAppLoc, and use that to run the game after downloading the RPT linked by Scarlett, all never versions should work perfectly.
If you want to run AppLocale, you have to run it as an administrator through cmd.

FOR THOSE OF YOU GETTING THE ????A E ????? ERROR WHEN RUNNING VERSION 0.17 (ENGLISH).
Basically it's .FLOW VERSION 0.17 (ENGLISH) + plus a few modifications.
I got it to work after looking at a bunch of the shit on this thread and I've compiled a zip with most of the steps done so that you guys have less of a chance to fuck something up.
Basically I followed all the instructions for version 0.15 and just added the rpg_rt.exe from some rpg maker 2000 game that I ripped off the internet and never played.
All you need to do:
1. Have your japanese language packs installed. You should be able to google this pretty easily, and as far as I know, all the language packs for Windows 8 (which is my OS) should be online.
2. Install applocale. If it tells you that a program that's needed to run the installation isn't working properly or something, right click the installer, view properties, and hit the compatibility tab. Click the box under "Compatibility mode" and press OK and install.
3. Run applocale. When you're prompted for a language, click the drop-down menu and scroll all the way to the bottom. See that? That's japanese. Click it. It'll ask you if you wanna make a shortcut. You'll probably wanna do that.
4. There. That should work. It better fucking work.

What I'm meaning to say is that it's difficult to help you when we don't know what the error message is saying. Try to reinstall/apply a japanese locale as by your system settings or through app locale. And it's always best to make sure that you have east asian languages installed… It will help a lot in the future. If it still isn't working after that, you can give us the error message again and we'll be able to tell you what to do exactly. Finally, Could you specify what link you got .flow from? It could be a faulty download.

Well, you can't just open .flow without telling AppLocale what you want to do.
1. Open AppLocale.
2. Choose to Launch an application, pick .flow 0.18.
3. Choose the language of the application. Japanese is the last option.
4. You can hit finish to launch .flow, or you can create a shortcut to always run this application with AppLocale. I always create a shortcut and save it as .flow version 0.[whatever] English. Save it wherever you'll remember it.

You're missing a file named "copy" (倣倷).

Win10. Wouldn't work, at least according to 2kki's wiki.

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.

Yeah, you're missing the vehicle file.
Copy anything inside the folder "charset" and rename it to 乗り物.png

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.
