Oni wouldnt start.. Plz help :'(

Hi! I've downloaded oni.exe, Daodan, and AE anniversary.
I pasted the daodan into the oni.exe file, But when I launch oni, nothing happens. I am a newbie and I dont know the next step, I ran oni the first couple of moments and it only showed me the intro scene and an error message says Oni.exe has stopped working... I do not know what has happened.. cry cry sad
.. Please tell me what to do next I've played oni my whole childhood and I would love to revisit it once again. Thank you for your support!!

Hi Cleverless.  If you installed the AE, then you actually shouldn't install any Oni.exe or Daodan DLL on top of that.  The best way for us to diagnose the problem is, if you run Oni from the AE folder and it doesn't work, open the AE Installer and choose Help>Request help.  That will send us all your Oni logs.


byproducts are fine, but where's the beef?

Oh thank you!!

Another problem I got was that I opened up oni (I tried both Full and normal screen) and everything worked great!! But when I started out at the training theres an invisible wall blocking and the cutscenes are not showing up!! My guess is to uninstall and delete all oni files, re-download AE oni and hope for it to work?.. I'm not sure but i'll try everything to play this game. I was wondering to buy oni from amazon retailed, but I would like to play for free..

             Once again, I thank you a million, you don't know how happy this makes me revisiting this.. big_smile

                   Till' then~!

Hmm, the invisible wall and lack of cutscenes mean that the level scripts are missing... I think you should make sure that you have a proper, preferably legal copy of the game before proceeding.

Note what the IGMD page says -- IGMD\ is a subfolder of GameDataFolder\.

Um... let's start over.  On the wiki's IGMD page, you'll see a link to download the unmodified files for Windows or Mac.  You need to download that ZIP, extract the IGMD\ folder, and place it in GameDataFolder\ (replacing any IGMD\ you already have).

Do I Delete or replace the IGMD file? I have winrar and do I extract it into that file or the game file?
