O.o; i'm getting confused. :o


let's start over:
double click galacticus.exe again, and you will be able to click
"Ok" or "?????". click "ok." then "yes." a "galacticus" folder will appear somewhere on your computer.

the very first time you clicked "galacticus.exe" it will have asked you where to put the folder; so that's where it should be. to get there, either go to the "Start menu > search > for files or folders..." or look around for it in "Windows Explorer."

:( is that any clearer?

Theres neither a 'Ok' nor a '?????'. Theres just some japanese signs! And with Galacticus.exe, you mean the weird orange square with a green circle in the middle that says 'Galacticus'?

and for others just in case...

from the very beginning:

1) follow the link of galacticus to http://www.freewebs.com/yeaka/galacticus.htm ...click the link to download the game.
2) Select the save onto your computer option when a window pops up asking you what to do with it.
3) you should get a "???????(E)" message, or something like that. then it'll ask where you want to save the file to. select a place of your choice, eg. My Documents, or just go with the defualt it already has there. you'll be able to click either "ok" or "?????". click "ok".
4) that window will close. go to whatever file you selected in step 3. there should be an orange and green icon called "Galacticus.exe" double click it to open it.
5) you have the option of clicking either "ok" or "?????". click "ok". stuff will load and the window will close.
6) go to the file you selected in step 3, and there should be a "Galacticus" folder. go into it and select the orange icon called "Game"


...if you get japanese signs instead of "ok"s and "?"s just assume the first option is "ok".



that's the basics of it. if there are further errors, try downloading the file specified on http://www.freewebs.com/yeaka/galacticus.htm to either the Windows > System or Windows > System32. Somewhere in Windows (or WINNT, etc, depending on your computer) there should be a system file. that's where the rgs100j.dll fill goes.

getting the game to work

Post by Sanctarylrose »

at first the game wouldn't work on my computer. so i downloaded the rgss100j.dll file. it still didn't work. but when i moved the rgss100j.dll file into the same folder as the galacticus game, it WORKED! the game itself needs direct acess to that file i guess.

I think something is cancelling the process. Since I see a empty bar after clicking ok, then another page opens up with a noise and a yellow '!' sign and japanese signs.

Ok, what I did, was I downloaded the file. On my desktop I got the green and orange symbol called 'Galacticus'. I clicked it, and it opened a window that, after clicking 'ok, created a folder called 'Galacticus'. However, the game still would not work, even after downloading that 'rgss100j.dll'.

(then I got angry and hit my computer, and spent a few hours pondering what to do, and attempting to do it)

Finally I figured if I downloaded RPGmaker XP it would work. I searched and found a free trial which I downloaded.

http://www.download.com/RPG-Maker-XP/30 ... 39795.html

However, though it opened, RPGmaker refused to work. I got a (not responding) message after hitting 'Ctrl' 'Alt' 'Delete'. (>:O) Then it said something about being unable to get a trial serial number. (T_T)

(I got angry some more)

Finally, my last effort was to open the 'Galacticus' folder (to stare longingly at it... I wanted Flakecest! T_T) and I randomly clicked on one of the icons... (surprisingly, the first one I clicked, worked...) The file Game.rxproj opened up the game in RPGmaker, from there I just had to click on the little green 'play' arrow and I got to find Trey! <3

(Pst, I love Flakecest!)

I hope that works, for someone at least.
>:D Fear my awesome yaoi authoress powers!!! >:D ... aww crap... XO Damn you writer's block! T_T
