The locale thingy depends on the distro. Most Debian based distros have it as "ja_JP@utf8", but others have it with a dot instead of an @, or have "utf-8" instead of "utf8".

I usually fix that problem by opening the effects inventory, and pressing the arrow keys (including the one that is stuck) and the "other" arrow keys (numpad and I think the others were around the j) until the arrow works again, when I come back to the game it isn't stuck anymore

Arrow key problems? Anonymous 03/06/12 (Tue) 19:08:22 No. 1050
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.

So I'm one of those unfortunate souls that's running on Windows Vista. The game I'm trying to run is .flow but let's pretend that reads "Yume Nikki english version doesn't exist yet"
The problem is that because I'm on this terribad system I can't install Applocale, is there a way around this other than the cmd thing, because that didn't work. Alternatively, is there a way to run it on Linux? I have Fedora on a flash drive.

Hey, anybody with the directional sticking problem should try this out.
I was doing everything to fix this, unplugging USBs and whatnot, stuff that I'd seen in the archive. Well, this whole problem just fixed itself when I started messing with the numpad. Not only can you use the numpad to navigate, but it seems to fix up the sticking issue when you do. Keyboard navigation is working fine afterwards.

You're playing the English translated version, right? If so, is your computer running under an English environment? The option to change your computer's language should be at Control Panel > Regional and Language Options. You want the option under Regional Options > Standards and formats, and Advanced > Language for non-unicode programs to be some sort of English option, such as "English (United States)".
I'm not positive this is the issue, but this would be my first guess, since I've seen the same thing when running Japanese games in an English setting.
Anonymous 05/29/12 (Tue) 04:32:34 No. 1309
Indeed I am using the English translation. Not the one from this site, I don't think. I asked around and someone said there was a download here, could someone link me to it?

Try running it without applocale then. Yume Nikki's English translation was tweaked to run under an English environment, so that's likely messing it up.

Do you have the Japanese language pack installed on your computer? You can find it at the following link:
I'm not sure if it'd actually be required for the English translated version or not, but it's worth a try.
If that doesn't work, you could try installing the RPG maker 2003 RTP, which you can find here:
I'm not sure that'd make a difference, since I think the version I linked has the required RTP files within the folder, but it's a requirement for a bunch of RPG maker games, so it might work.

I have a rather peculiar problem. The game runs fine and starts without problems, although I initially had to use the full screen fix to get it running. So, at first everything works normally, no issues with controls, graphics or sounds. However, after playing for a while, the picture will disappear. The game won't crash or anything, in fact, it will keep running like nothing had happened, made apparent my the sounds still continuing like normal. There's just no picture and I've found no way to restore it.
There seems to be no pattern in how this works. It doesn't occur upon certain events or after playing for a certain amount of time, it just randomly occurs. I'm kind of at a loss here, and really, with no error message or anything, I doubt there's a fix. I'll post it this anyway though, because I really want to play the game properly. Other tips are also welcome. Like, is there some way of integrating some sort of "Save State" function to the game, giving me a save feature mid-dream as well. That way I could just restart and continue np. This doesn't really bother me apart from lost progress.

Because of that I have to turn my computer off in order to get the black screen to stop.When I first ran the program I got it to work, but not it doesn't at all.

Is there a version of English Yume Nikki 0.10 that can be downloaded, that's not part of an installer? This is mostly because I don't want to fiddle around with an installer: also, the installer contains files from the RTP, which I don't want - just the game, nothing more. I think there was someone on this site who did a pack of such a version of Yume Nikki, but I can't find any working links.

I have this same problem, (though my skewed menu looks slightly different).
Trying to play Yume Nikki 0.10 in Japanese. Downloaded the game via
(linked from Yume Nikki's homepage) and obtained RTP 2003 from the link given in the .txt file.
I am running Windows XP Home (SP3) with system locale set to Japanese (no use of Applocale).
Can anyone shed any light on this?

You're probably using the japanese version, I don't know why it crashes randomly on windows, even with applocale or if you've set your locale to japanese.

Sorry for the typo.
Also, I forgot to ask, were you using applocale or did you set your locale to japanese?
Because normally applocale works for rendering CJK characters in their native encoding, but sometimes (when filenames are in japanese) it also helps for parsing the names correctly. If you were playing the english version, you should try playing it without applocale (in case you were using it), but if not, then yeah, go with the japanese version.

What I found:
"This is a common problem in RPG Maker games, from 2000 to VX. The reason as to why this happens is still a mystery, but you could try one or all of the following:
Try using the arrow keys on the numpad. These can usually regain control of the character.
Reboot your computer.
Turn your computer off for some minutes. Let it cool down, take a breath.
Stay away from RPG Maker games for a while, even after rebooting.
Reinstall RPG Maker (if you're using it).
Reinstall the RPG Maker RTP of the game you're trying to play.
Try run the game with your computer in save mode (click run, write administrative tool, click on system configuration, boot, boot options, save boot, and click on active directory repair, reboot your computer). If the problem continue, try to disconnect your computer to internet or try with boot minimal option. Nota: to restore your computer to normal boot, repeat the steps and unmark safe boot.
Unplug peripherals such as webcams and joysticks.
Again, if those don't work, running to the hills sound like a good idea."

Oh yeah, for some reason YN won't work when your locale has been changed to japanese because a serie of filenames is somehow missing.
It seems to happen to the japanese version, AND if you downloaded the english version and you executed the installer with english locale, then you attempt to use it with the japanese locale.
If you aren't planning on changing your system locale back to english, I suggest deleting that copy (except the save files), download the english version again and install it in japanese.
That worked for me.
I currently don't know what happens with the japanese version. It is really illogical that you can't play it with your system set to japanese.
Anonymous 07/05/15 (Sun) 19:01:46 No. 4886
It's probably because there is a different run time package for the english than the japanese.

That could be, though I'm not so sure. Mostly, the missing files where "system files", and I don't think kiki was using any default, but it's a possibility.
I had guessed that the problem was the mojibake filenames and japanese filenames, but this one seems to be the case here.
I should try downloading the JRTP and seeing if it works with the vector mirror.

Yume Nikki mojibake solution Kristian Acevedo 09/10/15 (Thu) 02:17:06 No. 5009
I suffered from the same mojibake characters bug/thing in the japanese version of Yume Nikki.
What I did in order to solve it was to replace the RPG_RT.exe file into the game's folder with another RPG_RT.exe file from a RPG Maker 2000 game (in japanese, it may be from a yume nikki fan game); after that, install the RPG Maker 2000 RTP (the japanese one) and you're good to go.
I'm not sure why, but it seems that some people have problems with the RPG Maker 2003 RPG_RT.exe showing mojibake and others don't, maybe is because of OS, I'm not sure.

The counter on the menu shows the number of effects collected + 1 (the instructions) so it should say 25 and not 24 when you collect all the effects.
I was dissapointed when dropped the "24 effects" (I had dropped 23 instead) because of this, it may be your case.
suffering gentoo user 09/10/15 (Thu) 15:07:29 No. 5012
I’ve digged into the link posted in the thread below about easyRPG working through HTML5, and I’ve found that easyrpg may be easier to use than original RPG_RT binary.
Unfortunately, I couldn’t find neither easyrpg itself, not liblcf required to build it in gentoo, so I thought maybe if there are users of Arch or other people in which distro those packages are present, you could try and run Yume Nikki with easyrpg, it should see the fonts installed from the runtime (also which runtime does YN-0.10 from the frame to the left require? 2000 or 2003?)
How to for those who’s interested here:
If this would really work I may consider to spend some time on gentoo forums to make somebody help me with making ebuilds for those packages.

>>5012 >>4387 >>1604
Suffering gentoo user, thank you for posting about the EasyRPG project, it looks interesting; and you were right, it may be used to play the game too!
- Download the EasyRPG from
(I downloaded the EasyRPG Editor-Qt continuous builds, Windows 32 bit).
- Unzip it and execute EasyRPG-Editor.exe.
- Create a new project in some folder, go to that folder and find the Player.exe file, copy and paste it in the Yume Nikki's folder with the RPG_RT.exe.
- Execute the Player.exe and you're done!
It's great! But I assume you still need the 2003 japanese RTP thought.
Suffering gentoo user, when trying to run the japanese game found in vector (redirected from kikiyamaHP, known to be Kikiyama's website), a pop up that tells something about 2003 RTP appears, I assume that version is the one the game requires (the japanese version, when installing the english one the pop up still appears).
- You may also get the Player.exe file from the EasyRPG's templates folder without creating a new project.
- I couldn't find/generate a Player.exe with the EasyRPG Editor-GTK continuous builds (use the Qt one).
- You can skip the process of telling where your RTP is when EasyRPG ask you.
- EasyRPG may crash after generating a new project, but the Player.exe will still appear in the folder.
Kristian Acevedo 09/10/15 (Thu) 23:54:41 No. 5014
Maybe to make a build for linux to play the japanese Yume Nikki may be somewhat an overkill, you may get the Player.exe file from the EasyRPG's templates folder without creating a new project or running it (in the EasyRPG Editor-Qt continuous builds, windows version).
The Player.exe may run using wine, although I'm not sure.
Mojibake solutions I provided don't seem to work correctly! Kristian Acevedo 09/14/15 (Mon) 23:30:38 No. 5020
I'm terribly sorry, the solutions that I provided indeed seemed to have solved the mojibake. I was so excited about it when I saw it in the main menu, that I didn't tried to actually play the game.
When changing the RPG_RT.exe to the 2000 version one, I was unable to move when the game started.
While using the EasyRPG's Player.exe I was able to play normally (without mojibake)until I tried to sleep, then the game froze.
I have read in the EasyRPG forum about people being able to play it with the EasyRPG Player (with some minor issues). Maybe I messed up in some way.
If I find a good solution, I'll probably come back to post about it.
It might be possible to run Yume Nikki in other OS! Kristian Acevedo 09/14/15 (Mon) 23:55:03 No. 5021
There are ready to download EasyRPG Players, to different platforms (OSX, Linux, Win, ¡even Android!, and more) here:
If you read my previous post you may note that I had problems running YN with EasyRPG. But I didn't have tried/looked how to solve it too much.
And there are posts in EasyRPG Forums of people that seem to run YN in android, or other platforms with minor issues.
It may be worth checking out, I think I'll try to experiment with that player and I'll probably post back if something went good. :D

fixed in-game mojibake for real atarimae 03/20/16 (Sun) 06:28:10 No. 5429 >>5020 >>5009 >>5344 >>4387
I solved this mojibake shit, at least for yume nikki. I'm on Windows 7 64-bit.
No, it doesn't involve third-party programs or 2000rtp. I don't think 2000rtp games require this bullshit process, because I got yume 2kki working before, didn't actually play it though. Still, I've seen pictures of fucked up yume 2kki, so this fix might still apply.
Don't use the link from Madotsuki's Closet, shit is missing RPG_RT.exe for some goddamn reason.
Okay, so starting from the beginning.
Preliminary: set your system locale to Japanese. I also installed the Japanese language pack, I don't think you need to though. You can do it anyways.
1. Get applocale. The right hand context menu version won't work sometimes because you can't run it in administrator (at least for me), but it's convenient when it does.
2. Run every fucking thing through app locale. Extracting shit (USE 7-ZIP), running 2003rtp, installing 2003rtp…everything should show up with no garbled filenames in your Windows explorer. If it doesn't open for some reason, go to the applocale.exe (should be in windows/apppatch) and right click -> run administrator, then try to run the application through applocale.
3. If you're able to get to the point where you can open the game using applocale (if ゲームスタート.exe doesn't work, use RPG_RT.exe in the ゆめにっき folder), this is where your despair begins. (pretty much everybody can get to this point just using online resources).
4. DON'T WORRY. Go to Control Panel>Region and Language>Formats and change your Format to "Japanese (Japan)".
5. Open the game. It should work.
The amount of people/weebs actually trying to play the game in Japanese is probably really small. But this fucking works. At least for now.
Image attached proves.

I have a similar problem, for the Pink Sea as well. The message says, "Not implemented", popping up in a solitaire fashion, then "RPG_RT.exe has stopped working".
I changed the following in Windows 10:
Settings > Time & Language > Region & Language > Add a Language (Japanese) > Download Language Pack
I thought I did this before but when I went back to check it, it prompted me to do it again. So I guess I did it through Control Panel later. It originally corrected some English fonts in-game and just added the language without installing the full Language Pack.
Control Panel > Clock, Language, and Region >Change date, time, or number formats > Administrative > Change system locale… to Japanese
This changed the Japanese file/folder/app names to be correct.
Control Panel > Clock, Language, and Region >Add a Language > Japanese > Installed Japanese Language Pack
This had no effect.
This had no effect.
In between tries I did the following:
-Reinstalled Yume Nikki (The last time with all changes made nuking the folder beforehand)
I actually noticed some of the sound files weren't being copied over after making all these changes so I decided to pull the files over from OS X and disable the Japanese localization. Still no luck.
Incidentally, wine runs this game pretty well.

Figured it out.
If you replace all the MP3 files in that folder with these:
It magically works! Basically I generated them with the following command with ffmpeg on OS X:
for i in $(ls | grep mp3); do ffmpeg -i $i -acodec pcm_s16le $(echo $i | sed 's/mp3/wav/'); done
Also, I'd like to add that I'm using Windows 10 N, not Windows 10, so I don't have WMP installed. I don't know if that *matters*, but it might install mp3 codecs I was thinking.
If you are on Windows 10 N, I recommend doing that and this:
Settings > Time & Language > Region & Language > Add a Language (Japanese) > Download Language Pack
I would also love to know if Windows 10 has the same problem, given that it has some extra stuff thrown in.

I do know what you mean though, it works that way just fine with 2kki.
Anonymous 07/13/16 (Wed) 16:27:16 No. 5770
Maybe someone can patch up a download with the folder that includes the right files. Would be helpful.

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.

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.
Anonymous 02/17/17 (Fri) 18:38:30 No. 6323
If you're using Win 7 or later just use 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.

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
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
Anonymous 06/04/17 (Sun) 18:31:45 No. 6580
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.

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

Anonymous 06/05/17 (Mon) 00:56:57 No. 6582
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.

>>6582 >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
Anonymous 06/05/17 (Mon) 02:16:02 No. 6584
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

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?
Anonymous 09/05/17 (Tue) 14:43:36 No. 6831
Try opening both files with a hex editor and see if their headers/general information are the same.

I just used the notepad, but it was enough to let me see that my old save was just full of empty lines.

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.

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.

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

When trying to install the RPG2k RTP, I get the following error:
————————— RPGﾂｸｰﾙ2000 ﾗﾝﾀｲﾑﾊﾟｯｹｰｼﾞ ————————— Setup failed to run installation: One or more arguments are not correct. ————————— OK ————————— I have tried installing this using Japanese locale (which I downloaded and extracted the setup files in) and my home locale, but neither works, and the error message is extremely vague. Help?

Game launches, but immediately crashes because of this error:
"ファイル マイシステムa は開けません"
I'm running the Japanese game through WINE. I've installed the Japanese 2003 RTP, and used this program called "convmv" to change all of the filenames from shift_jis to UTF8 to eliminate mojibake. I'm scared that this might've broken it, since the game can probably only deal with SJIS paths, but I'm still posting about it here in the hopes that it's not the case (changing my operating system's character encoding scheme would be pretty inconvenient, after all). The reason is, even when I go through the files, I can't find any called "マイシステムa.xyz". There's "system/マツプベテムa.xyz", but as you should be able to judge, it's totally different. Is there something more to this, or am I just going to have to put up with the mojibake? Are there any weird hacks I can do on the executable file to deal with utf-8 filenames, if that's the case?
If you have an actual graphics driver and not something Intel put out, xrandr should have an option to set the "Scaling" property to "center", I think. This probably should apply to games run through WINE.
There's also settings to scale by regular sizes and stuff I think, but personally I don't like to have my images upscaled at all. Alternatively, you could get a CRT monitor and not worry about blurring.

Currently playing through the steam version of Yume Nikki and made it onto the ship and tried to get the crash cutscene happen. Only to find the lights would not dim and no matter how long I waited in the bed (Someone recommended I wait a few seconds in the bed) got in and out of the bed still nothing. Tried leaving the room and coming back. Still nothing. Anyone have any ideas on whats wrong? I remember not having this problem with the non-steam version.

Damn, they still haven't fixed the steam version? It's been a known bug for a long while…
I'm currently looking for a way to play the .10 japanese version with the fullscreen and (2x resolution) WITHOUT getting every pixel in the game looking blurry (wich the steam version at least has that going for it) but after setting pretty much everything in my win7 to japanese so it would run the game (language, region, system locale), the in-game menus have garbled text (interestingly enough, it doesn't look blurry in the screenshot, when it does in my 1360x768 screen)
(I've also been looking for a .10 english version without the blurry screen, but I've only found the steam version - wich has these annoying bugs - or a few others wich won't allow me to exit the NASU game with the Esc key)
