I have a question though, how do you upload shimejis?
Sorry for the noob-ish question ;w;

Have you tried putting it in a zip file? Then you can upload it to DA in a deviation, or you can put it on MediaFire or some other media sharing site and link people there :3

Create tutorial!  I'm currently trying to make a Shimeji myself, but I completely forgot one of the most basic guidelines of drawing and have been creating it all at the correct size! *facepalm* once I have all of the poses and proportions blocked out I may try and do what you did and make them larger to include more subtle details once they are complete.

A quick question as well: do you know the measurements for the guidelines of the shimeji crawling on the wall or carrying an IE?  I've been struggling with that because I've only been eyeballing the measurements but you have them blocked out very nicely in pink in your program.

Do I have to download both Japanese version and English or can I just download the English version?
CrypticMadCrow's avatar
Just downloading the English version is fine. After that, you can just take the image folder from Japanese shimeji and put them in the img folder in the English shimeji. So, say you download a Japanese shimeji for Kirby. You can open the English shimeji folder, go to the "img" folder, create a folder named "Kirby" and then just move the "shimeji#.png's" to the Kirby folder in the English version.
You can run all of your shimeji at once with one program that way.

Hi! Trying to help:

Assuming you have a Windows O.S. (above WinXP, i.e., Win7 or Win8.x - now, even Win10), the things you have to know:

1- You should have the Shimeji-EE version of the program, so it can work with the Win O.S. (see above);

2- Even if you have a 64 bit O.S., you MUST install a 32 bit JRE (Java) - you can have multiple versions of Java in your system, they coexist just fine - in this case, you can have a 32 bit installed alongside a 64 bit Java, no trouble (the only catch is, if afterwards you install a newer 64 bit JRE version, the installer thoughtfully advises you that it has found prior JRE versions and that you can choose to remove them at the time - you can choose not to, and you MUST tell the installer to let them be);

3- You won't be able to use the program Shimeji-EE.EXE to start your shimejis - you'll have to use the Shimeji-EE.JAR instead, and there's a command line for this - the smart thing to do is to create a Shimeji.BAT file (a pure text file with .BAT extension, instead of .TXT) in the same folder that you extracted the Shimeji-EE.EXE, Shimeji-EE.JAR and what else files were in the archive - you then edit the Shimeji.BAT (Notepad works just fine) and paste this line below:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre6\bin\java" -classpath Shimeji-ee.jar -Xmx1024m com.group_finity.mascot.Main -Djava.util.logging.config.file=./conf/

You keep everything almost exactly as written (even the ""), you only have to alter the location of the 32 bit JRE inside the "", depending where (which folder) you chose to install it and/or its version - note that the JRE above is version 6, supposedly the one garanteed to always work with the Shimeji-EE program, and that it was installed in its defafault location/folder.

After you save the Shimeji.BAT file, you can create a link to it and then copy this link to the Desktop and/or some place of your choosing (eg.: the Startup folder, for automatic shimeji starting) for ease of use.

If you want/need to download the 32 bit JRE 6, you can find it in the following URL (jre-6u45-windows-i586.exe):…

Note that the latest JRE version, at the time I'm writing this, is 8u66 - also, this 6u45 installer is the standalone/offline kind, i.e., it's self-contained and doesn't need an Internet connection to work after you download it.

I hope this could be of use for you (and everybody needing this information) to make your shimejis come to life - they are worth it!

If further info is needed, you can find something useful in the link below:…

Your tutorial is great, but what should I do if I want my future shimeji just to land on the bar, but not to fall on it?
