@00:43this has happened to me today too D: it's a problem of the java system, not yours. If you open the shimeji using the .jar file instead of the .exe file, it will work. Anyway I could solve my problem installing again java of 64 bits, maybe this is useful for you ^^ (my windows is 64 bits xD if yours isn't, don't install it XD)

Hope it helps!!!

In Windows7 there have been issues with Shimeji, and a lot of people ask me what to do to make them work. So, here is a little present for you, a video tutorial about how to make them run in your system ^^

Just for your information I'm using Windows7 64bits.


:bulletblue: Do you have Shimejis that work and others that don't work? Do you want to run ALL them?
~Simply follow this Video Tutorial~

:bulletblue: View Youtube Version (has music :3)

:bulletblue: Download Original Shimeji

:bulletblue: download WinRAR

:bulletred: Do you use Mac and want to run Shimejis? Use this tutorial made by ~CynicalCucco: [link]

Cool! How do you make the characters? Do you need photoshop, or can you make one in Paint tool Sai?

you can use any program that allows you to draw and to save in transparent background :) so both Photoshop and SAI work~ (not all SAI versions can, so look for a tutorial or something just in case ;) )

How can you make this work for windows 8?

Cachomon Featured By Owner 12 hours ago
Windows8 should burn in hell :( like Vista did. I am sorry, but I don't have it and I will never have it, so I can't do a video of it...

BUT I have a possible solution for you. I have friends that use my shimejis in Windows8 perfectly like it was 7. I suggest you to try one of mine (you can download one of the latest to be sure is updated), my program is in English and should work on your computer, is not the English one that is around the Internet, my friend tweaked it completely and he updates it when someone asks for something or I have a suggestion.

If this shimeji works:
Mochi Sweetheart Shimeji +FREE+ by Cachomon More here: cachomon.deviantart.com/galler…

You can download its code here (to add the pictures you want as I did in the video you are commenting :) ):
:iconshimejidesktoppets: you have it in the top left of the group :)

I hope this helps :):)

I have a few questions...and hope you do not mind me asking...

First: Do you need Winzip? I had a problem downloading Hatoful Boyfriend before because of Winzip...and other things to boot. 
Second: Does it...pay? I most likely am missing something here, and you could have mentioned it like, 100 times...
Third: Can you make your own? (Like draw the Characters and not download them from somewhere) And if so, do you need Flash?

I do apologize if I am being dumb...*bows* Thank-you for your time.

Then let's reply you asap! x3

First: You need WinZip, WinRar or any program that lets you decompress a compressed file. Then you will need Java to run the shimeji.

Second: Both WinZip and WinRar can be got for free. They have, of course, a paying version that lets do much more things than just decompress. But if you say WinZip gave you problems, try with WinRar.
The clue is don't get it from a bad website I guess. If you are unsure about it or something, just tell me which windows do you use and if 32 or 64 bits. I would find a link for you.

Third: Yes, Shimeji can perfectly be as you want. If you can't code, you can just replace the pictures they have in the pictures folder. You just have to maintain the resolution and the canvas size. If you can't code, is better to don't change that.

You can visit my shimeji group, we submit there a firmware that works in all the computers for now (since the original doesn't). You can try it and replace the pictures of that one :) we are totally active, so don't doubt to ask there whatever you want to know about shimeji: ShimejiDesktopPets

And nope~ this program is made with Java, not with Flash. Are different codings~ so need different programs to run. Just make sure you have it updated, but that's all you need to run a shimeji.



And don't worry<3 I hope I helped, and don't doubt to contact us there if you need it! :D

Reply
:iconcachomon:
Cachomon Featured By Owner Nov 25, 2014
well, the shimeji program is done with java xDU I don't think it's possible to run it without it... maybe exists a pluggin or something but I doubt. Why can't you install Java? Is quite basic in a computer D: the computer itself doesn't let you due a computer error or something like that?!

First off, thank you SO MUCH for this! I finally got mine to work again! Whoo!

Second, I was wondering if you could help me... After following your steps, I can get individual Shimejis to run, but I can't seem to get more than one to run at the same time. For example, I have a John Shimeji and a Sherlock Shimeji - I can run John, and while he's running I can get several Johns on the screen at the same time, but nothing happens if I try to run the Sherlock Shimeji at the same time. I have to close the John one, and only then will the Sherlock Shimeji run. Any idea how I can get both of them on the screen at the same time?

You are welcome<3 but to solve this problem, maybe you should test our own firmware oAo it allows more than one shimeji program at once, I usually use it~

Here you have it: :iconshimejidesktoppets: there, where says "LATEST SHIMEJI VERSION" :3 if that doesn't work, contact me again ^w^ there are other things to try, but this firmware is much better than the original in japanese xD we have added more things and it works for almost everyone.

After downloading it, have you discompressed it? If you can't open a .rar (because of having a Mac or whatever reason), transform it into a .zip using this website www.convertfiles.com/convert/a…. Then just discompress the file normaly, extracting EVERYTHING, not only a single file. Once that is done just double click the .jar file.

@01:50I haven't tested the original shimeji in a W8, but the one we have in my group works there :)

:iconshimejidesktoppets: Enter here and you will see a thumbnail with the last update my partner did ^w^ that totodile guy. Just enter, download, and test.

One thing you must have in mind is that a shimeji with more than 46 frames will have edited code, so the official one won't work :) if you still have problems downloading that version, feel free to send a Note to the totodile guy ^^

If this happens means that you didnt substitute the pictures with the ones you wanna see. There is a folder called "img" and there, the 46 shime pictures, just paste there the ones you wanna see.

Test our version, has a very good compatibility and you will find more information about shimejis there:

How do you get a Shimeji off of your screen?? DX
Reply
:iconcachomon:
Cachomon Featured By Owner Jan 29, 2014
there are some ways:

1. open the Task Manager and close it in the Processes or in the Aplications window.

2. press with right button the icon you have of the shimeji in the right-down part of the screen, with the volume icon and those. Once you have pressed right mouse button on it, just press "exit shimeji" or something like that, I think is the last option of the menu.

3. or just restart the computer/session...
