  1. Hi, good morning/afternoon/evening.
    I have a problem with the game. I already try install and re-install a lot of times but nothing was solved, so I came here to plea help.
    My game has several visual glitches and errors, for example, when I try open the config in the title screen, and then I go back to menu, the screen turns entirely black.
    When do I start EP 1, the warning “this is a fictional work, etc” not appear.
    Countless sprites are erased from the screen and only the mouth movings remains, and also countless backgrounds don’t appear in some screen changes.
    How can I fix this?

    Some screenshots about that issues:

    Thank you very much in advance

      1. “you might need to add an extra configuration option to the ons.cfg file. Firstly try a no-glclear option. If it fails to help, replace it with a no-texture-reuse line.”

        Can you explain this one better? What I supposed to do? (i’m layman, sorry buddy e_e’)

          1. Hi, i already try all the resolutions but i still can’t get rid of these glitches. \=
            I guess it’s happens only in win7 operation systems, bcause i try it in my friend’s pc (win7 too) and same errors/glatches remained (lol)… and his configs are diferrent from mine, so I think this isn’t a trouble that only occurs in my sys.
            Damn it, i really wantto enjoy this game rearrange. \\\\=

          2. Hi again,

            Let me assure you, that the game definitely works on Windows 7. The compatibility issue you ran into is known, and at least one of the resolutions should work. Most likely there is some level of misunderstanding or perhaps a minor mistake in our guidelines.

            I am fine to help you, but you should have some level of patience for that. Website comments are a little difficult to browse, may I ask you to create a topic on our forums: https://forum.umineko-project.org/viewforum.php?f=6
            Please include the GPU name you have. For that simultaneously press [Windows] + [R] on the keyboard and type dxdiag in the window that appears. Make a screenshot of Display tab (something like that: http://imgur.com/ebC8Cxm).

  2. I don’t know if this is just a computer problem, but when I try to extract some of the files I get an “archive is unknown/corrupt” error, even though I have it set so that .001 and .002 files open using 7zip. None of the background archives will open, and the .002 of the rest also won’t open. I’d like to know if anyone else is experiencing this or I need to find a way to figure out what’s wrong with my computer, aha. ;;

    1. Hello, you are not supposed to try opening 002 files on your own. They are used automatically when you extract 001 ones.
      Perhaps we should add this note to the description.

    1. Hello, the message you received says ‘might’, so there is nothing to worry about.

      If the update is not available on our website it means that you should simply wait a little longer. Such warnings will be removed once we are done with chiru.

      We have a few stability changes to push in our minds, so I would suggest you to visit us a little after the holidays to get them.

    1. Эти файлы не нужно открывать. Они — вторые части для архивов с раширением 001 и подхватываются автоматически при распаковке первых.

  3. can someone explain this further? very confused. do i download all of the links + the game engine that matches my system and then stick them all into one folder and click on the game engine? do i need to do something with the umineko game itself or replace files or something?

      1. Hi,
        This is not the same as the work on github. If you look carefully on their readme they explain that unlike us they only modify the original game in some aspects (e.g. voices, backgrounds) and do not try to recreate a complete version of the PS3 game with all the animations, effects, and convenience features (e.g. jump to line, picture box, trophies).

        Unlike the github version our game is fully standalone and you do not need to change anything in any of the pre-existing games.

        To get the game running you need to obtain: backgrounds_03.08.16.7z.001, backgrounds_03.08.16.7z.002, graphics_03.08.16.7z.001, graphics_03.08.16.7z.002, sound_09.08.16.7z.001, sound_09.08.16.7z.002, sprites_03.08.16.7z.001, video_03.08.16.7z.001, extra_09.08.16.7z.001, scripts_02.10.16.7z
        and unpack the first parts of the archives (the second ones will be extracted automatically) to a single game folder.
        Then you need to choose the engine for your system (e.g. Windows XP SP3+ 32-bit) and extract it to that folder as well.

        Let us know if you have any further issues.

        1. thanks for the fast response. i click the engine system after downloading everything (and extracting the content from the zip files) but, uh, what are the archives?
          i click on the .exe/engine and it says invalid launch directory as well?

          1. Each file with the .7z.00X postfix in its name is an archive (e.g. backgrounds_03.08.16.7z.001). You need to open 001 ones (part ones) with your archiving program and extract them :)
            If your program is not working try the recent version of 7-zip from 7-zip.org.
            As a result you should see the following folders in your game location: backgrounds, fonts, graphics, sound, sprites, video and some files including en.file, ru.file, onscripter-ru_win_rXXXX.exe, default.cfg.

  4. потратил свои 5 минут, чтобы зарегистрироваться и написать что у вас ошибка в описании, а конкретно в слове “… изменение настреок)”

  5. Невозможно зайти в гайд по покупке игры. Спрашивает имя и пароль, ввожу те что были получены при регистрации – нулевой результат…
