APH - Italy Shimeji by MasterFranny APH - Italy Shimeji by MasterFranny
This is a shimeji, or a small figure/character walking around your desktop, being generally cute and being utterly useless.

I saw a few from Hetalia, and decided to make my own, basing my version on the beautiful England done by crazy-chibi [[link] (here: [link])

EDIT: now there's a South Italy, too! check here:

[link]

---

you can download the rar file from here:

[link] (mediafire)

[link] (megaupload)

You can download the zip from here: (please check the instructions first)

[link] (megaupload)

[link] (mediafire)

How to use/install it:

Download the file from above link. Open the rar and place the folder somewhere easy to get to.

Open the folder and double click on the 'shimeji.exe' file, and after a couple of seconds, Italy shall fall from the sky right onto your desktop.
Enjoy Italy ^^

For the zip you will need to rename two files in the folder conf: (YOU HAVE TO EXTRACT THE FILES INTO A FOLDER BEFORE YOU RENAME THEM! Do not rename them while still in the zip!)

change 'rename1' to 動作
and 'rename2' to 行動
It should work after that

The shimeji has 5 options that you can access from the small flag on your taskbar.

1 - Add more (adds one Italy)
2 - Come here! (Italy will follow your arrow running, sometimes he falls, too)
3 - Leave just one (when Italy starts to duplicate too much, this option erases all of them except one)
4 - Get back the IE (sometimes your Italy will shove away your msn/firefox/internet explorer window away offscreen. select this option to get it back, lol.
--
5 - byebye (closes off the shimeji program. can also be accessed right-clicking on the walking Italy and selecting the option that pops up)


---

I do not own Hetalia Axis Powers, NOR the shimeji program.

I downloaded and extracted the zip file from mediafire then i tried to start it. It came up with the java squares message so I downloaded the latest version of java. It still didn't work.
I tried to rename those two files but it changed the titles to two squares. The shimeji still wouldn't open.
My computer type is a compaq nx6330 or a hp or a windows xp professional. 
If anyone could suggest a way for this to work I would be really grateful.

sorry for the late reply, but holiday period is a busy period @_@

well, if it still changes into squares it means you don't have oriental languages working on your pc. you have to set the properties of your language set to install japanese :3 the language comes free so it shouldn't give you any problem to install it.

then you can change the names and have it work just fine. ^^

Ahhh can you please help me? ;A; Every single shimeji that I download pops up with Japanese text saying that I need Java 6, but I have the latest version of Java 6, and my computer is a Windows 7. Can someone please help me and tell me what to do?

sorry for the very late reply, but for some reason this didn't pop up at all. either you resolved your problems or you gave up and either way im very sorry ;_;

if you still have trouble tell me so i can help. but for windows 7 the solution is to either click on the jar instead of on the exe, or use compatibility settings to make it work like it does on windows xp with service pack 3.

But hey here is a question for you- does a shimeji still work on a computer that is a windows 8?

(you just select all the files and drag them into an empty folder, or select the option 'extract' on whatever program you're using to open the zip/rar

do you have java installed on your computer? you can access to it from its english version.

if you are getting that warning even if you have it, try opening the .jar file instead of the .exe and see if it works.

what OS are you using?
