Shimeji Snow Leopard by faror1 Shimeji Snow Leopard by faror1
My first shimeji ever! And it's a snow leopard. Worked on it for weeks, but now it's finished. ;)

How to use:

:pointr: Click download on the right side. It's a ZIP-file, don't forget that. xD
:pointr: After saving the file, click on it and choose the button saying "extract files". Sometimes you find that button when clicking on 7-Zip, WinZip or whatever you use for extracting files.
:pointr: After extracting all files, go into the folder 'Shimeji Snow Leopard' and click shimeji.exe
:pointr: And then, just enjoy it!

Very important to know:

:pointr: Someone told me that there are programs on Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard) - and later - to run such shimejis. So please ask Mac users for some advice because I'm not so skilled due to the Sony I have.
:pointr: That's my first shimeji. In case of some problems, I would appreciate you to give me CC (constructive comments) or a hint for a problem it has.

Program menu (appears when you right-click on the flag icon in the bottom corner of your screen):

- Add more
- Come here!
- Leave just one
- Return my IE (for when your internet windows are kicked offscreen)
- Bye-bye!

Troubleshooting:

If you download the zip version - zip folders ruin the Japanese text in some file names, so you need to:
:pointr: Go to the 'conf' folder
:pointr: Replace the 43kb file name with 動作 and the 10kb one with 行動.

[Edit] Alternative icon now available!!! [/Edit]
:pointr: Right click on the shortcut on your desktop
:pointr: Choose 'Properties'
:pointr: Click the shortcut tab and click 'change icon'
:pointr: Click 'browse' and browse for the alternative icon. you will find the file 'alternative_icon.ico'
:pointr: Double click on it, click 'ok' and exit the properties window by clicking 'ok'
:pointr: Then should appear the alternative icon. ^^ Biggest size is 256x256 (for Win7) but also possible to have in other windows for example Windows XP

Anyway, there might be some pixels that look white when the shimeji runs over a darky background. I tried to fix that problem as well as possible.

Special thanks to those awesome people who upload this shimeji on their website and help spreading it around the Internet. =)

I got the shimeji to work, but all of the commands show up as boxes. I guess that's cause the Japanese got messed up with the zip file. The cat itself was cute, but I couldn't figure out how to work it.

Oh, you mean the menu that pos up while clicking on the little icon? Well, it does not show anything else than squares on my computer too. I couldn't find a way to translate it. But a translation would be like this:
- Add more
- Come here!
- Leave just one
- Return my IE (for when your internet windows are kicked offscreen)
- Bye-bye!

Hope it helped. :)

i'm trying to make a shimeji right now but its kind of hard

faror1 Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Sorry for the late answer.
Sure, it's hard. .__. It took about one or two months for me to make it. :D But the most exhausting part was copying parts of the shimeji's body into new pictures and erasing white pixels.

How do you make a shimeji? It looks easy
Reply
:iconfaror1:
faror1 Featured By Owner Dec 3, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I made one frame (the standing one I guess) and then modified it the way I needed it. For example changing the body into a sitting one and so. But one thing to do so is to save the head as an extra image and then copying it into the frames. An extra head (and tail) makes everything easier. :D

And yes, making a shimeji is easy. I was really impressed by how easy it was but it really takes time. I needed about 2 or 3 months for it. Maybe I'm simply slow or it is indeed a loooooong job. :)

And after having all frames done, I had to work on the white pixels that appeared when the shimeji was running over a dark wallpaper. Had to delete these pixels and it was sort of a hard job. Always searching for white pixels, taking the concerned frame and then deleting it.

After all that, I'm not sure whether I would do another shimeji. :) Maybe, if I did one, I'd use another style of outlining. The one I used for the snow leopard (outlining without vector lines) did cause many problems.
