Here you have in 5 simple steps how to make work ANY SHIMEJI IN ANY WINDOWS COMPUTER NO MATTER WHAT.

Remember that Shimeji get updates once in a while from KilkakonOfficial , stay tuned for them in either his Patreon or our deviantArt Shimeji Group: ShimejiDesktopPets .

:bulletred: Of course this DOES NOT work for Mac.
:bulletgreen: If these steps didn't work for you (which unfortunately can happen if your computer has issues, specially in Windows 8), don't worry. There is a solucion and it's known by us :) so if that's the case, contact KilkakonOfficial. He will do a tutorial about this, when will be available I will put it here!

Hey, I'm sorry, but I followed these steps and I was still unable to get your evolvable Eevee shimeji to run, it opens a Java program of some kind in the background but does nothing else, any help would be appreciated!

Hey uh, it's been a while, I also messaged Killkakon and got no reply? I apologize, I don't quite know what to do.

I'm more reliably on Discord, on DA it's hard to keep up with everyone. I'll reply on your other posts

ok so

.jar files only open winrar and i don't know how to run it on java

pls help

Cachomon's avatar
This means that when you installed WinRar you had "jar" checked and you don't want that.

1) Uninstall Winrar
2) Uninstall Java
3) Reinstall Java
4) Reinstall WinRar BUT DON'T CHECK THE .JAR ONE WHILE YOU INSTALL (the installation will show you a list of extensions)

Now must work :)

It didn't work for me

I tried this way with some of your Shimeji, but they still don't work; I still get the message "failed to load conf. See log for more information"

None of your Shimejis work to me, not even with this method. The only one of your Shimejis that work in my computer was the nsfw animaloid female/male Sylveon; apart for them, not a single one

Cachomon's avatar
This is very strange to be honest xD because from Sylveon on, ALL of them use the same base of code.

Please tell us what Windows do you have, your Java version and if an error appears, tell us which one.
You can show screenshots if that's easier than words :3

I summon the programmer KilkakonOfficial for helping in your problem

Thanks for the reply (and sorry for the delay, I have no Internet, I use wifi).

I already realized what was the problem:


The only difference of that specific version of the Sylveon Shimeji (NSFW- Animaloid Male/Female) is that it have no sound files (the "700 - Sylveon.wav" file of the other versions); and that's it.


My PC have no sound card, so it have no audio output. Java obligatory requires an audio output if the .jar file includes any sound; that's why they doesn't work in my PC

How do i use this with GIMP-drawn shimejis? I tried to run my "The Second Coming" shimeji, but it did not work.

@ROBLOXNoob246 ... Did you figure it out? Did you save your GIMP files as .png files. They have to be named exactly as Shime1.png, Shime2.png, .... Shime46.png

So is this how we can get your old Eevee and Umbreon shimejis to work? Cuz those are from way back in 2012 and 2013 lol. (man. feels like just yesterday peeps were freaking out about the mayan calender)
Cachomon's avatar
Yes, exactly! :D and it's pretty simple really, once you will have made this a couple of times you will do it by memory~

Also, good news for you if you didn't know yet is that this August I will do a new Eevee Shimeji <3 with the new code, able to evolve, etc etc etc!

:hug:
cccviper653's avatar
Woo! Also nice. fast response. I love to see that you're still so active. I'll definitely be coming to you for any requests when I have money :p Keep being awesome Umbreon La icon 
Cachomon's avatar
Thanks dear :la:

Soon the Eevee campaign will start <3 feel free to be one of the donators nwn/ all the donators (and Patrons) will have access to the whole progress of the Shimeji~ being able to download it while it's still a WIP!

Since I see you are new, a campaign is just the start of a Goal of cash which is paid by people rather than for one single person like a normal commission :) so when it will start, feel free to invite your friends if you want! The more people donating, the cheaper will be for people too :3 of course won't be a public download until the Goal is reached, but after that yes, everyone will be able to download!

:hug:

Oki owo

Also, yeah that was super easy. I got the bwee and vee to work >w<

Uh, does a Shimeji ever work on a Mac? Or do they just not run on Macs?
Cachomon's avatar
There was a way long ago, but I think they are not compatible anymore :( some programs were needed to make them work and I guess there was no continuation on those. I don't work with Mac so I can't be more accurate about this, sorry.

You can try to ask in our group but as said, this was a lot of years ago. We have a Mac folder and there is ONE shimeji there... maybe the creator can illuminate you :)

Thanks! Guess I'll just have to get a PC one day. Heh.

For any custom stuff like this, yeah is the best :) Apple is very closeminded towards letting people customize

Aaahhh thank you, I couldn't figure out what was wrong. Turns out they were just missing some of the needed files. :aww:
