Duster Shimeji by zarla Duster Shimeji by zarla
I can't figure out how to get a file onto Devart at the moment , so for the meantime...

RAR: here
ZIP: here (Remember, if you download the zip, you have to go into the Shimeji_Duster1.0/conf/ folder and rename the 52kb one to 動作.xml and the 12kb one to 行動.xml)
And if you have shimeji-ee, you can unzip this file into your image folder, then pick him from your image sets. More on how to do that on the shimeji-ee site.
If you have a Mac, you can try the Mac shimeji fork. I think how it'd work is download the template Mac shimeji, then replace its conf and img files with Duster's. I'm not sure though. This walkthrough can tell you more though remember, you'll need his conf files too.

Moro suggested this and in the end I couldn't resist, haha. Duster isn't as ludicrously overcomplicated as my HunterxSmoker one, but he is more complicated than Hunter or Smoker individually, I think, mostly due to his climbing animations.

Anyway, Duster will mostly climb around your desktop or sit and watch you and have little Duster thoughts. He has specialized walk/run/trip/climb animations, especially his ceiling climbing one, and around ten new sitting idle animations that may pop up while he's loafing around your computer. He may also kick your windows around if you don't keep them fullscreen though.

Duster's conf files are customized pretty specifically to him in lots of different places, so be wary if you're going to use him as a base (unless you're familiar with conf editing anyway). Duster also has certain frames that are bigger than 128x128 and different register points for overlapping parts of your screen in places - I wasn't sure if I could get these to work, but in the end I pulled it off! Successful experiment, haha.


Shimeji is a little program that makes a mascot run around your desktop and cause mischief. You can find the original here, and by replacing the image files with your own images, you can make your own.

SOME IMPORTANT INFO

Shimeji are mostly meant to run on Windows and you'll need the latest version of Java (which you can update here I think).



HOW TO INSTALL

1. Click the download link at the top of the description and download the rar.
2. Double click the downloaded .rar file and a new window should pop up with a 'Shimeji_Duster1.0' folder. If that doesn't happen, you need an extractor like winrar or 7zip. Download and install those, then try again.
3. There should be a button saying something like 'extract to'. Click it, and specify an easy to remember location. This should extract the whole folder to this location (MAKE SURE YOU EXTRACT THE WHOLE FOLDER, NOT JUST THE EXE FILE)
3. Go to the folder and doubleclick shimeji.exe (or shimeji.jar, i heard that works too). They should should fall on your desktop after a few seconds.
4. To remove the program, delete the folder.

This might also be helpful.

If you rightclick the little Duster icon in your taskbar, it'll bring up a menu in Japanese. The options go

1. Spawn a Duster
2. Come here!
3. Remove all of them but one
4. Bring back IE screens (He'll sometimes kick your browser windows around if they aren't fullscreen, and also MSN messenger I think)
5. Exit


You can also right-click an individual Duster and click baibai to get rid of them, haha.


Duster (c) Mother 3 wooooooo

you need to download java 6 and run the .jar file(tip for window 7 users)
(you should make a Flint Shimeji!)
(I also love your version of duster, he's so cute!)(I will show you something secret)

Duster is one of my favorite Nintendo characters, that sadly don't get enough recondition. Along with Linkbeck from Phantom hour glass. Both are awesome! And have the same facial hair....

What version of Windows are you using? I heard sometimes switching down to Java 6 can make it work better, but I'd recommend checking some of the shimeji devgroups tutorials or help journals about it.

You may be clicking on the wrong start up file? I believe .jar is the correct one =3 I'm not on my computer so I can't double check, but it's worth a try? ^^
