here we post "WHY IS THIS NOT WORKING" and then someone else posts "THIS IS WHY AND HOW TO FIX" yay

helping the YN/fangame community, ONE HELP THREAD AT A TIME.

Previously solved problems

add LC_ALL=ja_JP@utf8 before the line to execute wine on your terminal.

I downloaded an old version of YN that still has everything written in japanese, save the game text, and it's never given me any errors. If anyone wants me to post this on /media/ i can but, i trust saya-chan's repack more than this half-translated thing lol. especially since i played it on an XP.

How do I access the game files? Downloading the game and trying to look into the folder like for 2kki only gives me the "generic" rpg maker files. I need it for wikia purposes.


They're literally in the folders, each neatly named after what they have inside. Music has music, pictures has pictures, chipset has chipsets…


Cheerio I would say if I did not try that as well in the beginning. If I access the folder, there are only the generic rpg maker files to be found. Maybe I need to seach out an older version.
I do know what you mean though, it works that way just fine with 2kki.


Maybe someone can patch up a download with the folder that includes the right files. Would be helpful.

same problem here. will reply if i find a fix or manage fix it on my own


Oh, I remember having this problem. Do you have any messaging programs (steam does it for me) that would cause popups/flashing toolbar icons? Or something on your desktop that's constantly updating like Rainmeter? Those cause some RPGmaker games to flicker like that. Alternatively, playing in windowed mode didn't seem to have that issue.


Does anyone know a way to play Wolf RPG and/or RPG Maker games on OSX? Wine is a bit finicky.


This is a particularly stupid question, but I can't leave the desk once I'm sitting at it. ESC does nothing. Does it change anything that I'm using a French AZERTY keyboard?


I can't remember which one was it, but push and keep ESC/x pressed until you leave the desk.


might i ask how one opens an xyz file?

time to find a legal download of rpgm2k3



Anybody know where I can get a clean download for applocale? The official microsoft link has been dead for a gorillion years now and I'm not sure if I should trust the top few links I get on google.


If you're using Win 7 or later just use locale emulator. http://pooi.moe/Locale-Emulator/

For older systems… not sure. Microsoft's completely dropped support of AppLocale. There were alternatives posted on Hongfire but I'm not sure what's still alive. Maybe someone else can chime in.



Thank you anon, this worked.


When I try to go through doors on the bottom half of the room, the game crashes. I'm playing it on wine in Ubuntu.


File: 1496563026378.png (23.29 KB, 750x655, missing_toiletinwonderland.png)

im triying to play toilet in wonderland and appears that i need some files, but i got installed the RTP, this is normal? someone have these files because when i was searching if these file were really missing, i found that they are actually missing on my RTP 2000, something similar is happening with LCDem ( im using easyrpg-player )


File: 1496588788413.jpg (100.08 KB, 788x528, 1470194323581.jpg)

It's wine being retarded, not much you can do unless you play on a VM or install windows.

I will reply to your problem, however notice this isn't the right board for it, TiW does have a thread in >>>/og/3222

You have to install the japanese RTP, not just any RTP. Check file.



oh shit, i posted here because it says "general" help but well, dont worry
and yes i have that RTP already installed but is still happening


It means "general YN/FG help thread", there's one in /og/ for general games too. It's the same though since they're made in the same shitty engine.

Have you tried pasting the files installed by the RTP into the game folders? Maybe it can find them wherever the installer is putting them but if you throw them in their respective folders in the game directory it should work.


File: 1496622502680.png (15.47 KB, 654x477, RTP200failwine.png)


im triying to totally install it again but it shows this error, doesnt matter if i open with the

LC_ALL=ja_JP@utf8 or LANG=ja_JP.utf8 line argument, it keeps happening


Check if you have japanese fonts installed in your wine directory, and if my memory doesn't fail you should also check how you set up the locale with wine in your distro too; LC_ALL=ja_JP@utf8 is for ubuntu, or at least I remember running something different in arch.


>Check if you have japanese fonts installed in your wine directory

yes i have them installed but, its the same, it keeps happening

and im on arch at the moment, i even checked the wiki, the command is "working" but for some reason it doesnt on RTP2000 installer


I'm pretty sure it was something like LC_ALL=ja_JP.utf-8 or LC_ALL=ja_JP.utf8; you have to use the code from when you generated the locale.
Either way, the problem is that it's extracting everything with mojibake instead of japanese, and that's why it can't find the files.



LC_ALL=ja_JP.utf8 worked perfectly, thank you,fucking finally, i feel dumb now but happy too

If it is really what it means it is, then it's this https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IRC_bot

Anyway, here's the original download, if you don't want to download that one:
And and a patch to fix v0.10's bugs http://www3.nns.ne.jp/pri/tk-mto/yumesyuusei.lzh


Probably a false positive, since only two antiviruses no one's ever heard of detected it.


When I attempt to play the Japanese Yume Nikki, I can't select anything. Both spacebar and Z do nothing, so I can't even start the game. The arrow keys work though.


Have you tried the return key?


I've been playing Yume Nikki for a while, gathered a bunch of effects, explored quite a bit. Today, i ran the game again, and found out the Load option didn't work. But in the game folder, i can still see my Save01.lsd file. It's just that the game doesn't.. see it? I tried copying it and replacing it with itself, and replacing the RPG_RT.exe file with a clean one, but it's still gone from the game screen. Does anyone know how to fix this?
My save file is 107KB, so that means it isn't empty, right?


File: 1504598748440.png (31.08 KB, 601x291, ynss.png)

A correction and adittion to my previous post:
My original save file is 30KB, and not 107KB as stated previously. I mistook it for the Uninstall.exe file.
Save04.lsd is an empty save i made just after starting a new game, to prove that my save is more advanced in the game, and therefore not empty.
Save04.lsd is visible in the game, but my original Save01.lsd is still not.


Try opening both files with a hex editor and see if their headers/general information are the same.


File: 1504632320750.png (19.42 KB, 1173x641, s1s2ss.png)

I just used the notepad, but it was enough to let me see that my old save was just full of empty lines.
I guess i'll have to replay it, thank you for the help though!


I downloaded Broken Bottles but 7zip won't extract the RPG_RT.exe. I tried copying the .exe aand placeing it in the Broken Bottles folder, but I always get a message that I don't have permission or something. Why and how can I fix that?


Erase that directory and extract again. If that doesn't work, extract the exe first to a different directory and then everything else into the same directory.


Thanks, your second solution worked

Trying to play Sick Mind, but I got this error message… and I already tried replacing the executable with ones from a bunch of other fangames, but it didn't do shit…


>and I already tried replacing the executable with ones from a bunch of other fangames, but it didn't do shit…
Well, of course it didn't; it is only asking you to put the vehicle file in the charset directory.


Win10, just can't fucking start older RPGmaker shit at all. Already have locale emulator, already tried downloading jap runtime package, it gets stuck at a certain % and closes, already downloaded the other rtp that's supposed to help with that issue, and it did nothing. And I'm an absolutely fucking moronic brainlet retard so VMs are hard.


hi !! i had a problem with the current english version font of yume nikki and found this rly helpful site / thread that explained a nice fix (at least for me, i didn't have the font "ms-mincho" installed and that was basically it !! i run windows 10) i hope this works for u all



You have to run the RTP installation in the Locale Emulator, have you done that?



Is there a way to play in fullscreen on a higher resolution monitor without the blurry upscaling?
I'm using Wine.


The steam version fixes that issue, sadly it's only for windows


Thanks, I'll just run the Windows version of Steam through Wine then.


Is there still no fix for the bolded fonts on Linux?

After spending some time trying to make this work, I was able to get normal text with the following setup:

>Wine 3.16

>ipamona (installed via 'winetricks ipamona')
>fakejapanese_ipamona (installed via 'winetricks fakejapanese_ipamona')

If you happen to use Lutris, I created a new YAML build file that automates the above process. It's currently pending review, but it can be found here in the meanwhile:

You should be able to install it via the following command:

>curl -o yume-nikki.yaml https://spit.mixtape.moe/view/raw/53d00daa && lutris -i yume-nikki.yaml

Hope that helps!
