Link shimeji - UPDATED by Hachiseiko Link shimeji - UPDATED by Hachiseiko
A shimeji is a small desktop buddy that runs around and climbs all over your screen! I made one with Link from the Legend of Zelda for my friend's birthday! Now I updated it with the English files and recolours made by :iconselelas:

It's really easy to use! Click on one of the links below, download, unzip(extract the files), open the folder and run "Shimeji-ee.exe"! Done! No install needed!

If it doesn't work try to open the "Shimeji-ee.jar"-file instead OR you may need to install the latest version of Java.

~ Credits and more ~

:iconcontra-rawr: made an icon out of Link playing the ocarina! You can find it here -->…

The file still won't open. I have Windows 8 and I've downloaded Java, but it still tries open in Adobe Reader or not open whatsoever. It either says 'File not supported' in Adobe, or 'Unable to access jar file' when trying to open it directly. It also says 'Could not create a Java Virtual Machine'. Do you have even a remote idea how to fix this? I really want little Link to be running around my screen!

It might be that it doesn't like the new java... I've experienced problems with that too. But I don't know much about Windows 8 so I'm afraid I can't be of much help!

Well, alright. I'll try again, but if it doesn't work, oh well.

This might be late but I had the same problem, but I fixed it.
All I did was go into properties on the application, went into
compatibility, and clicked on :
'Run this program in compatibility mode for: Windows XP service pack 3'
