    Question about 'start'

    (this is the best place I could think of to put this question.)

    Okay, I have two eroge games with 'no dvd' type patchs with them labeled as start in both of them. I honestly downloaded them awhile ago, but can't remember how to use said 'start' and continue with the game.

    Re: Question about 'start'

    I'll try to help the best I can.

    Perhaps, after installing the game, you would place the NoDVD patch within the same folder of the game. From there, you would only double-click on the patch. After it finishes patching, just play the game.

    It could also be a patch to replace the original application of the game. If in your game folder, there is an application called 'start' just replace it with the patch. Remove the original and place in the patch instead.

    I believe the naming, whether it's 'start' or something else, depending on the game, isn't really too important.

    Re: Question about 'start'

    I've tried putting it in the folder and activating it, it does nothing.
    I've tried Renaming after the start application and activating it, as well as putting it as _(gametitle) like a couple my games require. Still nothing.
    Whats weird is the 'start' application is a much smaller size then the boot application.


    edit- also tried using it when the game was booting, again like some of my games require.

    Re: Question about 'start'

    What game are you installing? Perhaps I'll try the patch myself to see if it'll work or find some solution.

    Right now, I'm trying to download that one and see what happens.

    I'm checking to see if other sites have any problems.


    Another question, did the patches come with the eroge or did you download the patch and eroge separately? Perhaps there's an updated patch... I'll look it up too.

    Maybe you should change your region settings. If you already did that, then I guess that's not the problem. -_-

    Re: Question about 'start'

    No, pretty sure my regional settings are fine. 97% of all my games work 100% fine. Theres just a total of ...5 games I have that won't. These two (just to answer the question, it was included with them, both the dvd patchs or whatever they're called, called start.) and the other three pop up some message in japanese that I assume is saying I need a activation of sorts with them.

    So far, there haven't been reports on this problem with some of the sites I visited that had the eroge to download.

    If you ever feel like it or have the time, perhaps try downloading from this site.

    (Maybe it's not compatible like some programs only run on 32-bit instead of 64-bit. By now, I'm just racking my brain for a solution.)

    Re: Question about 'start'

    Okay i'll look at downloading the version from this site. I don't think its a issue with the programming in what i'm using, its more like there a step I had to do with it that I missed or something.

    Re: Question about 'start'

    This problem might indeed be related to your OS. If you're using Windows 7, try running them on XP compatibility mode, since both games are fairly old (and even from the same company)...
    Also, like renano said, it's strongly advised that you change your regional settings before trying to play them, if you hadn't done so. You could try to bypass this issue with a program called Microsoft AppLocale (it's not officially supported on Windows 7 and you have to install it via command line in admin mode).

    I had similar problems when I tried to run Mashiro Botan on my Windows 7 x64 -- it wouldn't run, no matter what. Then, I created a Windows XP x32 virtual machine, installed the game and it worked fine (had to enable Direct3D emulation to get it working, actually).
    Another, and more recent, example is the game Navel Plus. I couldn't even run the setup without changing my regional settings to Japanese (AppLocale didn't work as well).
