    i got a problem, everytime i start the game it crashes and an error message tells me that the rscript stopped working or something like that, any idea how to fix it?

  2. Shunrei says:

    works perfectly, the installer took a long time to install so please be patient, but its worth the result

  3. HAC says:

    You need to make a note about video codecs for the guide. If you don’t have the proper codecs installed the game will hang and eventually crash upon startup. The only solution thus far is to rename the mov folder to something else and bypass the videos (removing or renaming the videos themselves doesn’t work.)

    IF anyone knows specifically what codec these vids need that would be helpful as well.

    First thing, I’m spanish so excuse my english. It seems I can play almost perfectly the game, less one little issue: text. I forgot how it was called (remember that I’m spanish, I think it is something like “text wrap” or so) but the letters are “desorganized” and it’s really a pain in the back to read like that. Do I need to install a specific font or something like that?

    Thanks in advance,

      Nevermind it. I tried using “Applocale” and the problem is solved. Self-note: next time, try everything before posting. 😛 I feel like such a noob……

  8. LordNetorare says:

    i mounted drive 2 after 1 and hit retry but the error just reappears. whenever i mount drive 2 it just gives me options to playback the voices i cant seem to get the installer to read it though

  9. LordNetorare says:

    or rather now that i look your screen shows an okay button. at 51% mine says retry or cancel, i hit retry but that doesnt do anything either

  10. LordNetorare says:

    hmm ya i tried many things including re DL but nothing works, if you happen to see and know anything pls reply anyone out there

  11. LordNetorare says:

    it says something about data2.can in error if thats significant

  12. LordNetorare says:

    i see what the problem was, i was extracting contents of ccd 1 and using setup from there, it works if you use setup straight from ccd 1 without extracting it

  13. otabuo says:

    the game is running but i never figured out how to unmount the first disk did i do it without realizing and successfully install the game? would it even run without the second disk? if it does would it crash on me in the middle or something? im just kinda confused since i dont remember ever mounting the second disk

  16. nihondaisukidesu says:

    I’m having a problem with the language, the game is installed fine I can play it in Japanese but I can’t figure out how to play it in English. step 9 doesn’t make any sense.

    Start English patch? how? I’ve never been given an option like that and nothing I click on gives me a screen like that. I don’t know what to do.

    Please help, thanks xx
