ShiinaRio v2.47~2.49 Games do not work on Windows 8/8.1/10

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

So it seems a few VNs that were released in 2010 to 2012, and happen to use version 2.47, 2.48 or 2.49 of the ShiinaRio game engine, don't work with Windows 8 onwards.

These are the lists:



According to this site (scroll down to the 椎名里緒 part) :


Versions 2.47 to 2.49 have some idiosyncrasies with scripting and therefore don't run in Windows 8 and above.

Is there any way to make these run on Windows 8 and up? I kinda ended up buying one of them (Mimi wo sumaseba / みみをすませば) that runs ShiinaRio v2.47 (even though the trial version runs v2.46!) and it doesn't work...

Would someone be kind enough to investigate if there's any way to run these titles?

I did try copy-pasting a v2.46 exe of the same game, but it didn't let me through, throwing a "Program Version Error", so if we could get around that somehow, maybe it'll work?

Thanks in advance!


EDIT: I should also add that my language for non-unicode programs is set to Japanese.

Holy cow, this works! It works!!

You just saved me over 20 GB on my limited space SSD for a Windows 7 VM install that wouldn't even maximize to fullscreen and a suboptimal VN experience. Thank you so much! :')

@Tay or a mod, can we put this problem, the list of affected games and the possible workaround that @binaryfail posted here to somewhere so that it doesn't get lost in the forum for future reference? Thanks!

I tried making a workaround for this issue. Can you test this module and see if that fixes it?

Wow!! Thanks for that.... I've been looking for something like this for quite some time. 
I can't believe I just found out that this existed now. 

Works great o/.... thanks!
