:new: REMOVED THE < small >. SO YOUR PRETTY EYES WON'T MISS SOMETHING. AND BOLDED~! 8D

(**ADDED SIMPLE AND ADVANCED Q&A** THANK YOU, JAPAN. THANK YOU. :iconlolyesjapan: )

( GUYS, I KNOW IT'S TL'DR. BUT IS IT HARD TO USE CLTR + F? D: )

SIMPLE

Q: What is Shimeji?

A: Shimeji is a program for windows 2000 and vista, that is basically like your average desktop sitter, or that old purple monkey from the older version's if windows, minus the whole "Rogue adware" thing. They come in all sorts of skin's, its most commonly japanese skins, but recently boards like 4chan have found it, and began crafting skins for it. It's same as BONZIBuddy or sheep.exe, except it's customisable; yes, you can download packs that allow for your favourite characters to walk/climb/be generally cute on your screen.

Q: Why is it called Shimeji?

A: It references to a japanese mushroom, saying like they duplicate like japanese mushrooms.

Q:What do they do?

A: Once you run the program, a icon will appear on your toolbar, diffrent icon's for diffrent skins, usually. As they fall from the top of your screen, they will usually stand up and walk around a bit. For a minute or two they may stand still for a second to call apon coding, then they will wander around your desktop, sometimes sitting down to relax, or climbing along your monitor sides.

Q: Anything amazing?

A: Well, the thing is programmed to be able to climb on windows, and on occasion. Pull them to the point where they can throw it offscreen. (There is a function to make it return to desktop though.) They can also duplicate themselves freely, but you can just use another function to remove all but one. And no, as far as I know there isnt a way to stop them from duplicating, unless you edit the code.


Q: You said something about skins?

A: Sure did! There are alot of skins that have been released in the past. Some off of comic book heroes, some off of japanese vocaloid stuff. Some off of just meme stuff, like coolface, babby, 4chan stuff.


ADVANCED
Q: Does it Work on Mac?

A: Sorry but, no. It does not work on Mac at the moment. It only support Window. The buddy is only scripted for Windows not MAC.

(Also MAC does not have the latest update on Java ) - Anon

EDIT: SHIMEJIS CAN NOW BE USED/INSTALLED ON MACS. LOOK AT THIS BLOG FOR MORE INFO. :iconyayrussiaplz:

Q: Will they ever make one for Mac?

A: I hope they do, but Mac is not supported with this script and so I can’t do anything about it.


Q: Will it work on Window (XP,7,Vista, etc.)

A: Yes, the desktop buddy is only scripted for ALL Windows.

Q: My buddy threw my Window away and I can’t retrieve them! Help?!

A: To retrieve your window back. Go to your task bar and Right Click the icon. Once you have down that, click the 4th option. You’re window will be back to normal.

Q: My buddy just sits around & doesn’t do anything.. Is it normal?

A: Yes it is normal. It’s randomly scripted that way.. You CAN throw them around the desktop. They randomly do whatever they want. Please don’t complain about it Or say something is wrong.. Like I said.. It’s randomly scripted.

Q: How come my buddy doesn’t throw any windows?

A: Like I said, It’s randomly scripted... You must have your window into a little window and do not make them full screen. The buddy do whatever they want.. PLEASE DON’T COMPLAIN THAT IT DOESN’T WORK. Because it does. It takes a long time to do that.

Q: Can I have 2 or more buddies at the same time?

A: Yes you can. Any buddy of your choice can be at the same time.

Q: It doesn’t work, help?  

A: If it doesn’t work, you might click the wrong app? Because there is 2 different types.  It either has  Shimeji  or  ClickMe.   If it does have a ‘ClickMe’ please do so to click that. If not, click Shimeji.exe.    

Also if you didn’t extract it, then it won’t work properly. Please extract the file on to you’re destination folder. If you already extracted it, please reconsider to reinstall it.

Other solution; You don’t have the latest Java.. Make sure you download the latest Java go here:

www.mediafire.com/?8bc5ujb1t2t…

Q: “So I extracted the folder to the desktop. Clicked on Shimeji there’s a Japanese error? Then I click on ClickMe there are two folders that appear com and META-INF. What should I do? “

A: Well basically , all you have to do is uninstall Winrar.. try using other version of Winrar.. I heard the free trial winrar is messing around with the ClickMe file.

If the ClickMe file does have a 3 folder books icon.. Then you just need to uninstall it. :] not that hard.

Q: How do you reinstall (remove file)?

A: Make sure you exit out the app. To exit, go to your task bar and find the icon(random icons). Right click the icon and click the 5th option (last option). Once you finished, you can delete the files (folder) and try reinstall it again in the tutorial.

Q: How do you remove/close the buddy completely?

A: To exit, go to your taskbar and find the icon(random icons). Right click the icon and click the 5th option (last option). (its on the tutorial for screen shots)

Q: How do you delete multi characters/clones?

A: If the characters multiply rapidly, it’s best to Right Click on the task bar and Click the 3rd option.    

Q: I can’t open .RAR file?!

You need to install Winrar  or www.7-zip.org/ in order to open a .rar file.

Q: Does it lag your computer?

A: It depends. We had 1 report that said it lags. It doesn’t usually lag.. Many had multiple on screen and doesn’t lag.  It depends how many memory space you have in your computer. That might of cause it.

Q: Where to download WinRar?

A: To download WinRar go here ( download.cnet.com/WinRAR-64-bi… ). I prefer downloading 32 bit just in case your computer is not compatible to 64bit.



IF YOU DON’T WANT TO USE WINRAR, please download this one. www.7-zip.org/

(Others)

Q: 'I want it too...but it doesn't work on my computer...when I double click the "shimeji.exe" theres a dialog box saying its potentially unsafe file type of .exe.'

A: If you are trying to open the shimeji.exe file and you recieve an error message in Japanese, this should override that error. kpopdesktopbuddies.co.cc/post/…

Q: "I have a quick question about making my own Shimeji.
When making these, my friend and I have been having a problem with transparency. When we make the images to replace the template and then transparent it, when it's mirrored to be facing the right (unlike the image in the img folder, which faces left), the transparency stops working and the image loses its color
If we leave the background color white or another color, it stays solid and then both the image and the mirrored work fine, except for the backgrounds of both not being transparent
Do you know how to fix this?"

A: If your program has a magic wand tool, go to whatever layer has the hair colour and use it with 0 tolerance outside the hair. invert selection and exterminate any pixels outside the outline. It seems shimeji doesn't have support for opacity/transparency so if there's even just 1% left of a pixel it'll show up in full force, so use pencil mode on your eraser.

A tip when colouring is also to use the magic wand tool inside the area to be coloured on the layer of the outline (and then change layer) and then use the extend option with 2 or 3 pixels, this should let you avoid ever getting pixel problems.

Q: .ZIP doesn't work, dumbass. How'dya make 'em work? My computer/laptop hates .RAR.

A: WELL, EXCUSE ME, PRINCESS. >.> Ahem. There are two methods.

Okay, if you downloaded the ZIP file and it doesn't work it's most likely because ZIP doesn't conserve the japanese file names for the XML files it needs to work with. So to get it to work you need to rename two files inside the CONF folder.
The one that's 43kb in size should be 動作 and the 10kb one should be 行動.

or.

Get a working Shimeji. Copy all the files except "IMG". Meanwhile, on the non-working shimeji (.ZIP), Delete all files except "IMG" and paste the copied files. If it still doesn't work after you've done that, then I don't know what's wrong. D; Sorry.

Am Taisia from USA. After being in relationship for seven years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that never believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I mailed the Dr CAFAi, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by reffering him or her to the only real and powerful Dr CAFAi who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there. Anybody could need the help of the spell caster, his email cafaispiritualtemple@yahoo.com) you can email him if you need his assistance in your relationship or anything.

My girlfriend of 2 years, just left, no note, no text, no explanation, I was in pieces, I contacted Dr.Obodo and within a few minutes of talking to he I felt much better, he is so calming, I listened to he advise and he began work for me, it took a few weeks to bring J back, about 2 I think, but it worked and I can’t thank he enough.
you can contact Dr at +(234)8155-425481 or (templeofanswer@hotmail.co.uk)
