ST1X Shimeji by spookydoom ST1X Shimeji by spookydoom
I finally finished this, yessss! >w</

Anyway, here it is! A shimeji of my robot character, ST1X!
What's a shimeji? Well, it's like a little desktop mascot that waddles around your screen being derpy and cute.

The original program was made by Group-Finity, I just made a skin for it.

ST1X will wander around your screen, climb on browser and messenger windows, play with an old empty can, and more! Be careful though, sometimes he gets mischeivous and will throw your windows off-screen. Also he may make more of himself. Don't worry though, you can keep his numbers in check and return any tossed windows to their rightful place using the menu. c:
Also if you ever get bored, you can just pick him up with your mouse and toss him around. XD ;

:bulletblue: A computer running on Windows (Sorry, Mac users. <8I I heard there's a way to get it to work on a mac but I'm not exactly sure, so I suppose google's your friend there.)
:bulletblue: The latest version of Java.
:bulletblue: Winrar or 7zip, to unpack the rar file.

1. Click the download link on this page and wait for it to download.
2. Extract the folder from the rar file using winrar or 7zip. You can do this by right-clicking on the rar file and...
:bulletblue: If you have 7zip, choose 7zip>Extract to "ST1X Shimeji\"
:bulletblue: If you have winrar, choose Extract to ST1X Shimeji\
3. You should now have a folder called ST1X Shimeji! Open it up and click the .exe file. There you go! c:

When you start the program, a blue button will appear on the taskbar. Right-clicking it will bring up a menu that will either look like a bunch of japanese or a bunch of squares. Since this will most likely be unreadable to you, here's what the options do!

1. Creates another ST1X
2. Will call ST1X over to your mouse
3. Removes all ST1Xs except for one
4. Returns all windows that ST1X may have thrown off the screen
5. Exits out of the program.

You can also right-click on a clone to remove them one by one.

Just delete the folder. Simple as that. uHu

If you're having issues where it won't open and a box appears and says something in japanese, double-check to make sure you do have the latest version of Java.

I love it! for years i always puted your shimeji in my computer. I is beause him that i know your DA ^^ and i was wondering if you think make a Chester's one. And one of Kilroy too!! that would be so beautiful. If you will not do it... Can i ask for a comission? :c
spookydoom Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2018
Oh man it's been so long since I've last made one, I actually lost all the files and stuff a while ago when my computer died. xHx It was fun though, so maybe I'll figure out what I can do to make another when I have more time! It would be pretty cute having a little Kilroy on my desktop. XD Or Chester, though his design seems a little more difficult to chibify just due to how lanky he is. I'd have to take some desinging liberties with him, haha.

As for commission stuff, all my info for that is here if you're curious!…

spookydoom Featured By Owner Aug 15, 2018
I think the link's been broken for a while, sadly I don't have the files on hand anymore. ;w; Maybe it's saved on some blank CD somewhere with my older art but I don't really have it with me after losing several computers over the years... Sorry about that!

I: ) so i then went to, converted it, got the file, now im stuck. i extracted the file n all, but i still have img, lib, and conf, copyright, and 2 Shimeji files. i have all this stuff, but no Shimeji-ee file. i need the Shimeji-ee to run it correctly and actually use it. this happens with EVERY SINGLE ONE OF MY SHIMEJI I TRY TO USE. any suggestions?

There should be a download button under the "Browse more like this" panel, to the right of the screen.

spookydoom Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2012

how do i make a shimejis ?
BreeBruno Featured By Owner Aug 25, 2012
How do I get Winrar?
spookydoom Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2012
I think you can download a free trial of it on their official website, but I'd still probably reccommend 7zip just because it's free, and winrar isn't. oHo
BreeBruno Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2012
Ohkay. Thankyou so much.
BreeBruno Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2012
Which website do I use though?? I don't know. Please help me out.
BreeBruno Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2012
I wish there was another way. It said 7 Zip can harm my computer. I guess I have to find another Shimeji. Really cute though.
BreeBruno Featured By Owner Aug 18, 2012
This Shimeji is so cute. :3 I love it when he hugs the can.

shadow0moon Featured By Owner Jul 7, 2012
Thank you very much. I love it. Itīs very nice and cute
SiroOni Featured By Owner Jun 29, 2012
Um, hi ^^' I'm trying to make my own Shimeji, and I've been having a problem. When I test it, there's a little while pixel-y cloud around the character. How do you get rid of that? I've tried everything!
spookydoom Featured By Owner Jul 5, 2012
Hm, that's odd... have you made sure that the area around the shimeji is completely clean? Sometimes a little bit of color from shading might slip out of the lines a little and be nearly invisible until you test it on a darker background. @H@ When it happened to me, I had to go back and clean up the picture to see if it'd go away.
SiroOni Featured By Owner Jul 5, 2012
Yea, I figured it out ^^" I was using the brush tool, and the line would blur, so now I'm using the pencil. :) Thank you so much for the reply!
spookydoom Featured By Owner Jul 7, 2012
Oh good! nwn
sherbert1 Featured By Owner Jun 3, 2012
I wish i could get this, unfortunately, RAR files do not work on my computer /=
Randomness-By-Korki Featured By Owner Jul 6, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
I was having issues with the RAR files as well, so I went to the original site for these little fellows and downloaded one of their packs... You can either download them as a RAR file (which didn't work for me) or they give you the option to download it as a .ZIP file (which works like a charm).

I downloaded the .ZIP file, then downloaded this little guy. I couldn't get him to work through the files I downloaded so, I made a copy of the IMG folder with all his pictures and moved it to the "original's" folder overwriting their IMG folder with the pictures of the first Shimeji... Clicked on the Application logo and TA DA! It worked. :D

You can find the .ZIP file on the bottom of this page: [link] You may have to translate it! :meow: Hope I helped some!
