Sorry if this has already been asked (browsed thru a decent amount of the thread, but this is a loooong one), but I'm trying to get Windows RPGMaker MV games working on Mac. Most RPGMaker games are fine to run with Wine, but not so for MV. I found a partial workaround - download a RPGMaker MV game made for Mac, get into the Contents/Resources/app.nw/ folder, and overwrite everything with the game files (just copy everything - including folders - in the main directory). This makes the game playable, but it crashes anytime you save (or for games with autosave, each time it does) without actually saving - and with the following error message displayed on the screen itself:

Unknown Error
Error: EROFS: read-only file system, open ‘/private/var/folders/fj/<bunch of other crap>/common.rpgsave’

Problem is, that file is already set for all users to have read, write, and execute, but for some reason RPGMaker insists it's read only. Anybody have any ideas?

As far as I can tell, the RPGMaker MV runtime is "just" a copy of nwjs and an up-to-date installation for it works for me ... but I'm using linux, not Mac.

At the moment, it's turned off to reduce lag server. No info about when it'll be up again.
There a thread in the "news and announcement" sub forum about how to "cheat" to still use it.
But it's easier to just use google search engine putting "game RJ / game name and add ulmf" -> like "RJXXXXXX ulmf"

Hello,
I'm sorry if someone already posted about this. I have a problem - in a couple of games no text is displayed for me. I changed my locale to Japanese. I have all RTPs, I even reinstalled all of them 2 times. I was searching for solution online, but I couldn't find anything that would work. I also read that the problem might be caused by the font used in the game (specifically the lack of this font on player's computer), but I don't know how to check what font the game is using to download it.
The games I'm talking about are: Sarah of the Rotation Cut (1 and 2), Netorare Kanade from acerola and Knights of the Phantasm from Adult's hobby. Right now I am using laptop, as I temporarily moved to another city, but before I moved I was using my PC and some of these games worked fine there.

Thanks for help in advance.

EDIT: I wanted to post screenshots, but I can't post links and they are not really needed, as all they show is games without text.

If you've changed the local to japanese and there no text I'm not certain. No text is a common error when using such game without playing with japanese local setting.
If you can, try playing the game using local emulator. If the text appear, it mean you haven't completely switched all the setting to japanese.
If it don't work, you might be missing a font, but from memory for all these game if there a special font it come with the game itself.
You might have a problem IF you switch to japanese after uncompressing the game archive. If so, try doing it again.
Another wild shot would be to try putting the game in a folder with a very short pathway (like directly on the desktop for test), and without any punctuation (like "." or "-") or japanese symbol.

Also, try NTLEAS if you are not succeeding with Locale Emulator, if you were to be not running the games with your system locale switched to Japanese. Some -if not most!- WolfRPG games only display text correctly when run with NTLEAS.
But switching system locale to Japanese when extracting and playing h-games is usually the simplest and most foolproof way to manage.

Are you still able to hook those old games with Chiitrans? The recent Fall Creators update for Windows 10 has stopped Chiitrans and ITH from being able to hook games for me. Only AGTH still works.

I know that the newer versions of WOLFRPG have adopted font caching so hooking the standard text rendering subroutines is no longer reliable. You need to find a H Code that works with the game you are trying to hook.

For example: RJ195774 needs the following HCODE:
/[email protected]

H-code for this game, worked fine with version 1.06
Not sure if it's the same problem you are having because it sounds like you cannot hook the games at all in which case, Try using a different program to hook the text, set it to copy text to the clipboard and have ChiitransLite read from there.

My experience with WolfRPG games is that only agth is trustworthily working with them.
A good couple of times I couldn't get a decent text thread in ITH and VNR (or ITHVNR for that matter) even with the supposed H-codes, what's more, VNR made things lag like hell when I turned on the repetition elimination that would have been needed at times.

Hey,
not sure how active this still is, but it's worth a try:
2 days ago I had a bluescreen of death (first one ever, Win7SP1) and now Translation Aggregator (last hongfire version) starts extremely slow (meaning 30s-2minutes) and randomly shuts down while working.
I have redownloaded it, but to no avail.
Has anyone ever had this issue - or any idea what might be going on?
If nothing works, I'll have to reinstall windows. It's been a while since my last formating.
Best regards and thanks in advance!

Need some help with RJ198405.
Trying to figure out why my game has no text.
JP Locale on Win8, no long extension. This issue has only happened for 2 or 3 other games in the past but they were different dev systems, everything else usually works fine.
I can't seem to find anything on it from searching. Does anyone know what the problem could be?
