View Full Version : Shimeji (Desktop Buddies)

October 2nd, 2010, 01:58 PM
Shimeji is a fun little desktop add on much like BONZIBuddy or sheep.exe, except it's customisable; yes, you can download packs that allow for your favourite characters to walk/climb/be generally cute on your screen.

Some screenshots:

Noel seeming pleased.

Hello Sollux (also a showcase of available Homestuck Shimeji) [Thanks to Hypes for this one]

Dave just does not care. [Hypes did this one too]


I leave for ten minutes and this happens.

Karkat you randy *******

Karkats, Karkats everywhere.

i love everything about this image

This website has several packs you can download. (http://shimeji.webs.com/) They all come with seperate Shimeji executables (Just click on the icon that looks like a little computer) but if you want other packs you'll want to make a seperate "blank" Shimeji folder instead.

Here are some packs for you to enjoy as well.

Various MSPA characters (Mostly Homestuck) (http://www.mediafire.com/?sjr4aw4xyq5w4cs)
Nite Owl from Watchemen (http://www.mediafire.com/?2u9bfi41r73b5r1)
Rorschach from Watchmen (http://www.mediafire.com/?0oothsebnnbmsyq)
Big Boss from Metal Gear Solid (http://www.mediafire.com/?5nyu9nfmm79u2ww)
A Variety (http://www.mediafire.com/?hzxoxff9xqqrocd)
A buggy Equius from Homestuck (The images are the wrong size so it doesn't work very well) (http://www.mediafire.com/?9ps32ok64otil16)
More MSPA characters (http://www.mediafire.com/?m3w51am83b832t3)
And other MSPAs. (http://www.mediafire.com/?4bhrz9zip9l99wc)

To "install" them, copy the img folder into the blank Shimeji folder and run. Make sure it has the executable jar file named FixPngImage. Not sure what it does but it makes it work. If it doesn't, copy it from another folder.

Making your own Shimeji:
Download an existing Shimeji.
Go to the 'img' folder and alter all the images as you wish
The images are all called shime[number].png
1. stand
2-3. walk cycle
4. falling
5-10. picked up swinging
11. sit
12. holding wall
13-14. climbing wall

20-21. lying and crawling
22. flying

Man I have too much fun with these.
Also, for those people who follow SitF, I'm making one with Laevus, which is in the process of being created {It'll probably be done tomorrow, not that anyone would want them, though.}

This pleases me greatly. (http://shimeji.webs.com/apps/blog/show/4868598)

Might try it out later on, alongside the Miku one.

I have lots of lovable Johns scuttling around my desktop. They don't do much, but they sure are adorable.

I am extremely disheartened, as java is currently failing on this computer and therefore none of this works.

I was commenting on his lack of Cirno.

On a side note, while watching sum anime, a Cirno randomly falls down. This is the best~

and oddly enough, my Cirnos are the only ones that are multiplying.

A story for you people. Starring Nyyl.

Nyyl's Quest for Love: Part 1

It's a brand new day, and Nyyl wakes up to find out that he's got ALL the girls.

Looking kinda desperate there...Besides, it's the other way round.

Well this seems like a valid relationship...although Cirno looks a little unhappy.

Clearly Nyyl does not know how to cater to a woman's needs.

Maybe he's more interested in...someone else?

A confrontation. They part on relatively good terms. Karkat never really cared anyway.

Perhaps this will go better...?

EX: KaitoxKaito
Now neither of us will be virgins!

This is great, I'll probably make a few sometime soon.

One question...how do you get rid of them? I've got a bunch of Rorschaches climbing all over my desktop. I hope they don't rebel and give my computer a virus.

EDIT: Nevermind.
