Nyanko-sensei Shimeji by chibbyart Nyanko-sensei Shimeji by chibbyart
Ever wanted to have your own Nyanko-sensei? Now you can, with shimeji!

Zip available here: [link]
As a warning, however, [.zip] files apparently aren't able to read the Japanese font, so you WILL need to do a little additional set-up before this will work. After you've downloaded and extracted the "Nyanko-sensei" folder, go into the "conf" folder and change the AA file (which should be 57KB) name to 動作. Then change the BB file (should be 12KB) to 行動.

I found out about shimeji a short time ago, and was motivated to make one of Nyanko-sensei, from Natsume Yuujinchou. Edited from Sherlockian's Toothless shimeji (found here: [link]), from which I have also shamelessly taken the following information, with minor edits according to necessity and my own observations. If you like this shimeji, please comment and let me know!

Important information:
Shimeji are little mascots that run around the desktop, and there are many others on dA.
Shimeji can only be run on windows, and you will need the latest java.
...
Instructions for use
1. Click download link on the side and wait for it to download.

2. Double click the downloaded .rar file and a new window should pop up with a 'Nyanko-sensei' folder. If that doesn't happen, you need an extractor like winrar.

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 that location.

4. Go to the extracted folder and double click the .exe to get started.

5. To remove, delete the folder.

6. To edit the images, go to the 'img' file and you will find all the .pngs. Edit these to your liking.
...

Right-clicking the icon at the bottom of the screen brings up a menu in Japanese.
The options are:

1. Spawn a new shimeji

2. Have the shimeji (of that type, if you've got more than one running) come over to your mouse

3. Delete all but one shimeji

4. Return any IE screens the shimeji may have thrown off

5. Exit

Making your own Shimeji:

Download an existing Shimeji, maybe the original, maybe this one.
Go to the 'img' folder and alter all the images as you wish
The images are all called shime[number].png

1. stand
2-3. walk cycle [cycles 1-2-1-3]
4. falling
5-10. picked up swinging
11. sit
12. holding wall
13-14. climbing wall [cycles 12-13-12-14]
15-17. idle
18-19. impact and bounce
20-21. lying and crawling
22. jumping
23. holding ceiling
24-25. moving on ceiling [cycles 23-24-23-25]
26. Look up while following mouse [seems to be, at least -- it activates when your mouse is above the halfway point of the screen]
27-30. idle after being called to mouse [28 and 29 cycle with each other, 30 leads into 31]
31-33. lying down and turning head [opens with 30, cycles 31-32-31-33 for a while, then closes with 30 again]
34-36. pushing window walk cycle [cycles 34-35-34-36]
37. thrown the window
38-41. pull clone from floor
42-46. clone self

Sorry you're having trouble, and that it took me this long to get back to you. To check your version of Java and update it if necessary, you can go here: [link]

That'll probably fix the problem, but if not, then from what I know there's usually two other problems that come up with running shimejis: First, make sure you're running the [.exe] file, not the [JAR] one. Otherwise, check that the files have the correct names (if you downloaded the zip, make sure you changed the file names to the Japanese).

Those are the only things that I know to check, but if it's still not working, let me know. I'm not much good at programming, but I'll see what I can do to help.

I changed (again) the names of files to Japanese and downloaded new Java
I'm really sorry to bother you but it's still not working :((

Hmmm.... Well, we might be able to jerry-rig something if you've got another shimeji that is working. Basically, you'd copy the working shimeji's folder and then replace the pictures in the [img] folder with the Nyanko-sensei pictures from this one. If shimeji in general aren't working on your computer, then... you've got a PC, right? Not a Mac? If your Java's up-to-date, then I'm not sure what else might be making this not work....

I've made a couple attempts at a Natsume shimeji, but I've been... less than satisfied with the results. If I do ever get one done that I like, I'll put it up. Just... don't wait for one from me.

(I'd really like one, though. >_<)
