Need help running game. NSFW in Visual Novel Talk Posted November 8, 2023 · Edited November 8, 2023 by Seraphim Before trying an emulator, you could try running the game in compatiblity mode and/or launching it as administrator if you haven't already. You can find these settings by right-clicking the EXE and then going to Properties -> Compatiblity. Booting games in compatibility mode for XP or Windows 7 has saved me a few times with troublesome VNs. You could also try out Locale Emulator. There have been a few cases where I was unable to launch certain VNs with my system set to Japanese locale, but Locale Emulator was somehow able to boot them properly.
