Hey all, I hope someone manages to come across this, but I'm having issues running the desktop pets for Katawa Shoujo on my Windows 7 desktop.
If you don't know what I'm talking about, it's this little cutie here: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=8291
It is extremely strange, because my Windows 10 64-bit DELL Laptop w/ 4 Gigs of RAM can run the little desktop pets, but my Windows 7 64-bit monster with 12 Gigs of RAM runs the program, but none of the characters fall from the top of the screen and reside on the sides of my monitor. Only the little Katawa Shoujo heart pops up in the lower right corner, signifying that the program is working, but that's about it.
I've modified the .bat file so that it matches where java is installed,
I've modified the .bat file by switching the 3000 in the -Xmx3000m to 2000 when 3000 didn't work, along with other values,
I've run the .bat file, the exe file, and the .jar file at separate times,
I've uninstalled/reinstalled both java and the Shimeji-ee files,
I've run FixPngImage.jar,
I've tried running the thing from the command line, and it ends up in this: https://puu.sh/zrECl/5d66c45f08.png
I've tried all I could think of, and nothing works.
What's also strange is that another person on the Katawa Shoujo discord server has the exact same pathways and settings as me for their PC.
Same path to java, same settings to run Shimeji-ee, same everything. However, the only difference is our monitors and operating system, but that shouldn't be an issue, since the people say that you just need XP or higher.
We even compared screens side by side and confirmed everything was identical when it came to folder location, settings, and actions activating the .bat, .exe. and or .jar files. Nothing works on my end, and he's got these little cuties ( https://i.imgur.com/n9WPgdv.gifv
) running around on his second monitor. Even our logs were the same, they were "<?xml version="1.0" encoding="windows-1252" standalone="no"?>
<!DOCTYPE log SYSTEM "logger.dtd">
If anyone could suggest anything at all, please do reply with possible solutions! It's extremely strange how two essentially identical machines don't appear to match up in behavior.
Thanks in advance, here's praying
