    Its supose to launche the setup or game file!

    • I have already downloaded the daemon tools file but does it really store game files? If so, what is the correct of doing it? I am trying to download the files of the Sonohana series whist at the same time upload most of their links into a new folder titled “Downloads”. However, so far I am having some difficulties as my computer would not allow me to download those files and I will like to know how to upload the links properly so that I can put then into my “Downloads” folder without hassle?

    Hey,New guy here.I’m also having trouble trying to use this daemon tools thing.some games i downloaded arent working for some reason (one for example was wankto to kurasao,once i selected mount on the mds file the setup showed me some weird words,i figured out what “next” button was which appeared as “???????”) is there a way to fix that so its in english words?

      When you’re in daemon tools, when it says in the program opened “No Image Added” right click that, and hit open. Hope this helps 🙂

    I’ve used daemon tools countless times in the past & never had a problem but recently whenever i mount h-games they don’t work. Mostly english ones like Come See Me Tonight 1-2, Kango Shicyauzo etc. The program always opens but when i hit play the game goes to full screen and just turns black and nothing happens. Also my resolution changes to the lowest level. Can someone please help me on this matter.

  10. Frank says:

    Try’d downloading Swan Song. When i get to the setup, it shows me %#6 things like that, as if it’s trying to copy the words into the english alphabet. i have tried installing the english patch yet the installation barely takes any time at all and the text remains garbled.

  11. Jamshad says:

    Hello guys i download a game it has 2 CD’s when i click on CD1 and mount it after 50% it ask me to insert game disk and click ok CAN ANY ONE TELL ME HOW CAN I SOLVE THIS PROBLEM ??

  12. playeresse says:

    I have a problem as well. Tried installing Animamundi using Daemon tools lite. I was able to mount the ISO file and it told me the installation was successful, but there are no short cuts to enter the game, no buttens and the system does not find it, when I try searching for it.
    Then again, if I mount and run the set up again, it keeps asking me if I want to change anything. So it HAS been installed, but for whatever reason it is invisible. What can I do to fix this?

  13. Andsen says:

    how do i install the english patches?

  14. Chris says:

    It keeps giving me a message please insert disk
    Im not even sure if I installed it right or the crack doesnt work

  15. Remmy says:

    When I download the game files theyre unopenable and not compatible with daemon, how do I change the files so that they run?

  16. Lisa says:

    I have everything set up in the Daemon program but once I start getting into the installation it freezes on the installation loading bar. It fills a little more than half way then says not responding. I tried restarting but that doesn’t work and also tried waiting for it to respond but no luck with that either.

  17. Confused says:

    I have already installed DAEMON Tools Lite, opened that Device 0 (DT-0), and mounted the image file, but I still can’t play. What’s missing ?

  18. stuck says:

    just installed the game, extracted with winrar, mounted with daemon tools copied and pasted the crack over, launch the game, select new game and it gets stuck on the first screen, sitting there looking at an empty room, a text bubble up with nothing in it but a single \
    anyone having similar issues?

  19. Ecn says:

    I get a blue screen error when I try to activate the program! Can someone explain to me in a very easy to understand way what to do, since I got confused?

  29. .DiabolikMinds says:

    Do I extract the files first or do I mount them?

    • ayee says:

      very late reply but i believe you should unrar them together and then mount as that sounds like the more logical option

  30. Ayase says:

    Umm so i already extracted the “do you like horny bunnies 2” file and had 3 files and a crack folder. So i mounted it and when i open the program there was the Do you like horny bunnies 2 set up menu, normal yes and installed it. However whenever i press play from the menu, it never opens. Regardless if i installed it or not, it never opens. I pressed play but thats the last thing it pops up until you press it again. Plz help

  31. metaldraven says:

    Hi, kind of a noob with computers so can i ask for help? I see all these comments saying they mounted the .mds file but the game i downloaded (yandere) when extracted only has a .bin and .cue file. Which one should i mount? and do i paste the english patch before or after mounting?
