    The savedata also overwrites your global save (where your completion is stored), so while normally you have to finish the game for the NG+ stuff to appear, just downloading that and throwing it in your save folder will do the  trick. 

    There is no savefolder for the game. I have tried looking for it in the folder that the game is in, but sadly I have no "Program FIles" which means that I can only find that in Windows. If there is a way to use a savedata for linux that can probably be the solution.

    If cheatengine and spoilerAL are out, there are none that I know of... You can use a hacked save and start a new game, though. If all you want is currency, you can just pick "Santoeril" in the screen that'll ask you what to inherit in your new game. You should have nigh-unlimited money.

    Would I have to finish the game to do that thing? Where I pick santoeril?

    http://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop

    Pick one or the other. Either one should be able to run the game after you have things set up.

    And you might consider going to their "alternative downloads" and use the Network Installer ISO if it sounds appealing. (On second thought, maybe not that).

    Im getting this problem now. http://prntscr.com/alsryp

    There are tons of tutorials on how to install an OS inside a virtual machine, and it's essentially the same process whether it's Linux or Windows being loaded up.

    You configure the VM to take an ISO, install the distro, and just start using the system from the VM. In the end, I have mine running like this.

    Wait you have XP too? I have a problem with mine, when I try install "east asian languages" its asking me for a cd, so in my XP i cant really play Kamidori either, games like sengoku rance and stuff I can still play, do you know how to install east asian languages without a CD?

    Look for VirtualBox in your package manager. Or maybe this command should do it:

     

    
    sudo apt-get install virtualbox
    
    
     

    I think 2GB of ram should be enough for the VM, but the vboxvideo guest driver doesn't seem to work as intended for me. The game was very laggy as a result. You might run into the same thing, so be aware of that.

    I already have it downloaded, how did you exactly install your xubuntu since I might need to change mine, or do you know how I can change to Ubuntu instead since there are more tutorials for Ubuntu.

    Lulz. Okay this appears to be because you've chosen Xubuntu which is a stripped down Ubuntu so we probably have to do this the hard way.

    
    sudo su
    echo ja_JP.UTF8 UTF-8 >> /var/lib/locales/supported.d/local
    dpkg-reconfigure locales
    locale-gen ja_JP.UTF8
    update-locale
    exit

     

    This is what I got before I did command exit "http://prnt.sc/ajlaq2" I can already see somethings are not going well.

    Games that work under wine fall into four categories, in decreasing order of frequency:

    1. Games that work with the existing game installer from scratch using wine either from CD or a cd image, or just copying the files across and then work fine. They may need you to use the installer to put all the files in the right place, or they may just have all the files in one place and where the files are kept doesn't matter so long as you access it directly.

    2. Games that need to be installed on a real windows installation first, and then if you copy across the installed directory with all its files onto a linux partition you can just start the game up from that directory on linux.

    3. Games that don't work at all under linux no matter how much you massage them but will work under a virtual machine running a real windows installation (such as kvm) on linux.

    4. Games that won't work under linux no matter what you do, whether because they need the CD in place or due to some underlying hardware access on windows that can't be emulated on linux.

     

    I have no idea what category your game falls under, but if it needs to use the full installer then just copying the files across will never get it working, or if it's one of the more difficult games to get working such as category 2+ then you need to put a lot of effort in to get it working in the first place. You've stated that others have gotten it working so I suspect what's missing in your case is you just copied the files and didn't use the actual installer.

     

    In addition, as we've already pointed out, you need to have japanese language support installed along with suitable fonts (usually installing the language support brings the fonts in) and the japanese locale installed - how to do this depends on which flavour of linux you're using.

     

    Finally, there are a number of things that won't work under plain wine by itself without adding a few windows support files, such as mpeg1 video. I suggest using winetricks to install them. Usually winetricks is installed along with wine but it may not be depending on the distribution in which case you can install it like this:

    
    sudo apt-get install winetricks

    Then you can install the windows support features necessary with winetricks like this:

    
    winetricks corefonts d3dx9_36 devenum ffdshow quartz wmp9

    When ffdshow is being installed, a configuration box comes up. When it does, don't just click okay but when it asks you what file types to play back, enable mpeg1 and mpeg2 which are disabled by default.

     

    None of these are likely to fix your underlying problem though, which appears to be how you installed it in the first place, but at least your wine installation will be better equipped to handle anything from now on.

     

    Finally as already described, virtually all Japanese VNs use the Japanese locale so you must start them with wine being told to use that locale

    LC_ALL=ja_JP.UTF-8 wine programname.exe

    is enough for that, replacing programname.exe with whatever the name of the program is you're trying to run. You have to cd into the directory where the program is.

    I have done that but the game keeps crashing, maybe what I need to do is install a japanese locale, but it does say generation complete, but when I do the command locale -a there is no ja_JP.UTF-8, so I was wondering how to install it with my linux(Xubuntu)

    Let's try something. Can you close all the programs that you're running with wine? I see TtT and a few other things in your screenshot.

    Next, run the command "wineboot" in your terminal. Then try running the game again.

     

    I ran wineboot in root and nothing happened so I continued with the command to open the game and this is what I got "http://prnt.sc/aj80ua"


  9. I have ran the game through terminal, it loaded up, but once I clicked on "New Game" it crashed. And showed me this message "http://prnt.sc/aj7h7w"

    When I downloaded the font I placed it in my "Home" folder in my desktop and ran the command 

    cp ~/msgothic.ttc ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/Fonts 

    This happened. "http://prnt.sc/aj7l29" Nothing really happened. I did everything you told me, but didn't seem to work, the only thing I succeeded at doing was opening the game through terminal, and btw thanks for that, but now I wonder if there is a way I can open the game without it crashing so I can play it.

    Getting a Japanese font:
    Obtaining a copy of msgothic shouldn't be too difficult. If you have a Windows machine (Vista through Win8, or WinXP with Asian language support will have it), get it out from the "C:\Windows\Fonts" folder. If you can't find one, go here and click View Raw.

    Once you have the file, move it to your home folder (because I'm assuming your terminal is opened there by default). The command here will copy it to wine's font folder. It is case-sensitive.

     

    
    cp ~/msgothic.ttc ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/Fonts
    
    
     

    Start the game by command line:
    If you got the game dir from another system, that is okay. You placed the game folder on your desktop, so I'll guess from your screenshot. Doing a "cd" to that folder should look like this. You will need the quote marks in the command.

    
    cd "Desktop/Kamidori Alchemy Meister"

    From there, use the appropriate command line to run wine. I'll use the same one I showed in my screenshot.

    
    LC_ALL=ja_JP.utf-8 wine age
    
    
     

    See if that works.

    It does run on wine at least.

    As the others have mentioned, your command prompt was not in the correct folder to start the game. Your screenshot shows that you're in your home folder. Think about where you installed the game at... you need to "cd" into that folder first. (In my screenshot, I installed it in wine's Program Files and renamed the game dir to "kamidori" afterwards.)

    Next, using LC_ALL=ja_JP.utf-8 should be sufficient for the locale settings. That worked alright for me.

    However, you need to have at least 1 Japanese font that wine can use -- or else the game will crash when it's about to show text. My preferred method is to copy "msgothic.ttc" from a Windows installation and put it in wine's font folder (that would be in ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/Fonts).

    Can I didn't install the game through this computer, I was at my friend's house and got the folder and placed it into my usb and placed it in my desktop. Can you help me on how to place it in the right spot and have the right locale, and also have the right fonts. ?
