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.

Recolours by :iconselelas:

:iconcontra-rawr: made an icon out of Link playing the ocarina! You can find it here --> chibi-child-kiki.deviantart.co…

That probably means you have the wrong java!

is there any way to uninstall these?
like i share computer and i don't want my parent's yelling at me for these so i will only turn them on when i'm on the computer. is there any way to like, shut them off?

The only way they will EVER turn on is when you start the program. It's an absolutely TINY program that takes up no space at all on the computer. Your parents don't have to worry. It takes less space than some music tracks.
If you want to shut them off, right-click any of them and just click "Good bye". When you (or your parents) start the computer it will be off by default.

oh okay thank you! i was lame for not reading the .txt file before asking and it DOES go on mac! the only probelm for me is that my dad has the function to not open files from unknown pages (like mediafire) so i'll have to ask him about that. thanks for your time!

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!

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'

These look awesome!... But before I download them, how do you turn it off..? (Apologizes for me being really dumb, it will be my first time using these in a long time.. ^^')

Hachiseiko Featured By Owner May 9, 2014  Student Digital Artist
Every time you want to use it you have to start the program yourself. If you want to turn it off you click either the little icon in the bottom right or any of the shimejis and the option to shut it off will appear. I think it's called "Bye bye!" or something like that... C: No problem, btw!

Hachiseiko Featured By Owner Jan 23, 2014  Student Digital Artist
"and I did everything" isn't a very telling description... What did you do? Have you unzipped the file?
Once you've unzipped it there should be two files called "shimeji" in the folder. One is an exe-file and the other is a jar-file. Try to open it using the exe-file first and then, if that doesn't work, try the jar-file.
