Do you? I remember some of the old version windows doesn't support Japanese language and you have to install it separately. Windows can't start.. did you get a blue screen? Some posters said they got a blue screen. Bert sweating 



You can find and search for Ren'Py coded VNs at here~ (I hope it's okay to post a link) [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
You can find lots of VN genres, and there's all sorts of art style, game lengths (some of the game even have more than 10 hours playtime!), plots, and so on. Go on and explore it! I'd bet you can easily get a new favorite game~  Ehehe~(and most of the game is free too! Sometimes there's a commercial for VNs, you have to buy to play it, but the game doesn't disappoint!)
By the way, Idol Crush is a Ren'Py coded VN too! XD

You're welcome, I hope you get even more hooked on VN, hehe
Have a nice day too  :D

Yeah i got a blue screen. and i dont know if i have the language thingy installed.. o.O
and thank you so much for spending your time for trying to solve my problem. You are really nice, Arigatou. -Bows-

and sorry to disappoint you but i was hooked for first two days (played 4 games) but now i am totally done with them.. i had this out-of-world impression that the anime are cut off becoz games are more like them (moving pics. i hope you get the picture) but to my disappointment, it wasn't.. i really hated the whole reading dialogues/still-image thing -sighs- so now i am back to animes and manga.. :p

But maybe in future i might play the other games i downloaded, so fingers crossed. smile
Thank you once again.
Good day smile

I hope after reading the guide I will understand all this better.

Another GREAT psp emulator is PPSSPP! 
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
I learned about PPSSPP from this website:http://sakimichi.wordpress.com/2013/09/11/ppsspp-tutorial-a-better-psp-emulator/
The person guides you on how to set it up.

Thank you for posting it! It's really helpful!

Actually I have installed the PSP emulator but somehow I couldn't open the game with it Bert sweating I might try again later though, since it really took me some times LOL

It's okay if I ask anything here, right?

Thanks for this helpful post! like  I want to ask. Does emulated games can work with these translation tools?

Most of the games I have are for psp, not in pc (Like starry sky, second reproduction), so I use ppsspp for them. Can I play them in ppsspp with the translation?

What emulator are you using? As for me, I have always been using ppsspp. I would just open the program and then drag the iso file in it. Then I got to play the game. 

You only can't play the game if it's not compatible with the emulator, welp, you know they're still upgrading their stuffs.

If you're using ppsspp, try to look at this thread http://forums.ppsspp.org/showthread.php?tid=1473, it's the list of all the compatible games with ppsspp. I hope that helps.

NOW YOU CAN!

The talented Jiichi, the one behind the cool program Visual Novel Reader,  has updated VNR to support PSP games runing on PPSSPP!!! Sakimichi made a post on it which I suppose she'll also post here soon, the reason why I'm not making a separate thread about this.

I also tried to make it work with HnKnA Wonderful Twin World and succeeded~

BTW I have translation aggragator running also since I mostly rely on JParser/Mecab and not machine translation which is sort of awkward, but you can use the machine translation if you don't understand any Japanese at all and have no use for Mecab.

Thank you for this incredible guide! I'm fairly new to the otome scene, but I've been unfortunately stuck to English otome only, because I don't really know much about using english patches and such. Your guide is very helpful!

I'd also like to say that Alistair was one of the first free otome games I played, and it was wonderful! I'll have to check out some of the others on your list. :3

default Windows game on Mac - Wine&WineBottler

Post by meguumi on 16/04/15, 10:38 pm

ALSO!  Bert sweating (kinda noobie to the site...)

I've realised that a lot of the games are only available for Windows.  Very Mad

You just have to use "Wine" and "Wine Bottler". wink  Wine lets you run the program directly, whereas WineBottler, well, 'bottles' the .exe (or windows program) into OS based - but it usually doesn't work...  Frustrated

How to use Wine on games:

1. Download Wine (just search winebottler, it should come up. It's free and, apparently, legal?)

2. Once you've moved it to the desired location (or leave it in downloads, up to you), just open Wine.

3. Go to your Windows program, right-click and open with Wine.

4. Program should run smoothly without lags~ :D  (Well, for me so far.)

5. Enjoy~!  Peace!

Woah! Thanks~
I'm not sure if I should consider myself a beginner, since I've been playing otome games since 2010~2009, but so far I've only played the ones avaliable in english.
