Hi! Trying to help:

Assuming you have a Windows O.S. (above WinXP, i.e., Win7 or Win8.x - now, even Win10), the things you have to know:

1- You should have the Shimeji-EE version of the program, so it can work with the Win O.S. (see above);

2- Even if you have a 64 bit O.S., you MUST install a 32 bit JRE (Java) - you can have multiple versions of Java in your system, they coexist just fine - in this case, you can have a 32 bit installed alongside a 64 bit Java, no trouble (the only catch is, if afterwards you install a newer 64 bit JRE version, the installer thoughtfully advises you that it has found prior JRE versions and that you can choose to remove them at the time - you can choose not to, and you MUST tell the installer to let them be);

3- You won't be able to use the program Shimeji-EE.EXE to start your shimejis - you'll have to use the Shimeji-EE.JAR instead, and there's a command line for this - the smart thing to do is to create a Shimeji.BAT file (a pure text file with .BAT extension, instead of .TXT) in the same folder that you extracted the Shimeji-EE.EXE, Shimeji-EE.JAR and what else files were in the archive - you then edit the Shimeji.BAT (Notepad works just fine) and paste this line below:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre6\bin\java" -classpath Shimeji-ee.jar -Xmx1024m com.group_finity.mascot.Main -Djava.util.logging.config.file=./conf/

You keep everything almost exactly as written (even the ""), you only have to alter the location of the 32 bit JRE inside the "", depending where (which folder) you chose to install it and/or its version - note that the JRE above is version 6, supposedly the one garanteed to always work with the Shimeji-EE program, and that it was installed in its defafault location/folder.

After you save the Shimeji.BAT file, you can create a link to it and then copy this link to the Desktop and/or some place of your choosing (eg.: the Startup folder, for automatic shimeji starting) for ease of use.

If you want/need to download the 32 bit JRE 6, you can find it in the following URL (jre-6u45-windows-i586.exe):…

Note that the latest JRE version, at the time I'm writing this, is 8u66 - also, this 6u45 installer is the standalone/offline kind, i.e., it's self-contained and doesn't need an Internet connection to work after you download it.

I hope this could be of use for you (and everybody needing this information) to make your shimejis come to life - they are worth it!

If further info is needed, you can find something useful in the link below:…

Your tutorial is great, but what should I do if I want my future shimeji just to land on the bar, but not to fall on it?

Excuse me, but may I ask a question. I'm using Photoshop, but I can"t seem to make the background transparent. What should I do?
ShirokiKoharu Featured By Owner Jun 14, 2014
just use the magic wand tool  to mark the shape, then use the eraser to erase the backround

FanasY Featured By Owner Mar 8, 2014
hola! gracias por el tutorial! por cierto, ero-pinku, sabes cómo se puede cambiar los codigos para que el muñeco se mueva? Lo pregunto porque estoy haciendo un shimeji y para la  acción de caminar el programa utiliza las imagenes "shime1" y "shime2", cuando la acción de caminar sería "shime2" y "shime3". LA acción shime1 la utiliza para estar quietecito... y para andar! :S  Está mal y no sé porqué, y claro, se ve la mar de raro el movimiento... perdona el rollo, a ver si puedes ayudarme :/ gracias!

i use paint tool sai and i dont think it will let me get a transparent background D:
Also i tried to download photoshop but my computer wont let me download it. HELP PLEASE v.v
GreyFailz Featured By Owner Aug 30, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
this might be late but you can make the background transparent in sai by making a new layer underneath all your completed artwork of courseand filling it with a solid color and making that layer not visible then save it as a png file and checking the box that says "32bpp ARGB (each pixel has opacity)" if you still dont understand illbe making a tutorial soon. hopefully this helped OvO
ToaLittleboehn Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Not sure if you still need help,but gimp allows transparent backgrounds
Ero-Pinku Featured By Owner Aug 11, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
The only thing you need is find a program where you can save your image with transparent BG (you can't do it with SAI), so I can't help you, sorry.
Maybe you can use a friend's computer and install Photoshop? ' ^ '
theawesomejames Featured By Owner Aug 12, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Alrighty, thanks for the advice! ^.^
Desticia Featured By Owner Jul 17, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist

Ah, thank you so much for the tutorial! Now I can go make a shimeji! QwQ

But two question, do you have to pay to get the basic shimeji? Also, if our shimeji doesn't get a transparent background, is there some way we can make the background transparent?

Ero-Pinku Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
No, the page where you download them is the official page ^^ and you download them free (I don't know if they have any button for donations...)
You need to erase the background... If you use photoshop, you can erase it without any problem (one image by one image). Then, save it as .png and it will have the transparent background ' v '
Desticia Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Okay! Thank you very much for answering! ;w;
