Have you ever wanted a .hack friend on your desktop? Well look no further!
You can now have a cute Azure Kite and Skeith running around causing mischief (and swarming) your desktop by downloading these basic files.
I have not tested these on MAC so this tutorial is for Windows only
To get started you may need to download and install Java which can be found here: https://www.java.com/en/download/manual.jsp
And you'll need 7zip which can be found here: https://www.7-zip.org/
Now that those are out of the way here are the basic steps:
Download the Azure Kite & Skeith 7z file
Use 7zip to extract the regular folder wherever you wish
Open the Azure Kite & Skeith regular folder and double click the Shimeji-ee .JAR file
If you installed Java previously then you should have the choice of spawning either Azure Kite, Skeith or both, then they should drop from the top of your screen and you can play with them!
To remove the pesky little dudes from your screen you can right click them and choose "Bye Bye!" or to get rid of all of them and close the program you choose "Bye Everyone!" from their menu or the system tray icon.
They have extra play options within their right click menu if you want them to move and sit somewhere or crawl on the wall for example.
I hope you enjoy playing with your new desktop buddies, and don't worry, they can't data drain your programs! :3
If you want to make your own Shimeji buddies there are two different base programs you can find here: https://code.google.com/archive/p/shimeji-ee/downloads
