FOR PEOPLE HAVING TROUBLES WITH THE DESKTOPBUDDIES!!!! NOTE: This'll only work if you have a 64bit Windows system !!!!
I FINALLY figured how to get them working on Windows7/Windows Vista (:
BUT FIRST CHECK IF YOU HAVE THE BOX SELECTED TO USE THEM T____T
I got a new pc with Windows 7 and ofcourse, just like I feared, the Shimeji didn't work. I already started panicking, but my dad figured out it didn't work because Shimeji hates 64bit PCs. So this is what you have got to do.
It looks quite difficult, but it's very easy! Just work step for step.
Try getting Quiet from http://www.joeware.net/freetools/tools/quiet/index.htm ; put the Quiet.exe into the Gerard/Mikey/Frank/whatever folder and edit the shimeji-ee.bat (right click the windows-batch file, and select edit) copy and paste these commands:
start Quiet.exe "C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre7\bin\java" -classpath Shimeji-ee.jar -Xmx1000m com.group_finity.mascot.Main -Djava.util.logging.config.file=./conf/logging.properties
next just run the .bat file
I hope this hel
