Locale Emulator – another tool for japanese locale emulation

menu New tool called Locale Emulator (windows). Does the same thing as setting your system locale to Japanese except now it’s much easier. Not sure about compatibility, but it seems to be doing quite well. [Hongfire.com]
NTLEA and Applocale is no longer supported so you shouldn’t use those.

Core written by Amano from sumisora.
Developed for Windows 7/8 (XP is not supported), works well with UAC enabled/disabled, better stability/compatibility compared to AppLocale and NTLEA..
Source: https://github.com/xupefei/Locale-Emulator
Core: https://github.com/AsunaYuuki/Asuna/…ocaleEmulator2
Issues: https://github.com/xupefei/Locale-Emulator/issues
Compiled binary

Current version is v1.0.5.1
Installation
1. unzip
2. run LEInstaller.exe and click Install
3. right-click context menu for running executable in a different locale
You can also run it from the command-line with LEProc.exe
Works fine with the few games I tried (kirikiri, LC-Script, Alicesoft System), feedback is also pretty positive from the chinese community.

Thx to mchubby for mentioning this to me.

  • This might be perfect for my needs, because the thing that annoys me about using Japanese locale is that some software I install will use Japanese characters, making it difficult for me to go through the installation process. I also use an English purchased Intuous 4 Pen Tablet and it uses Japanese.

    If this software lets me keep my locale to English while circumventing the Japanese locale restriction for games, this is perfect for me.

  • Wow… this works perfectly! I had to set the system locale to Japanese to play Witch’s garden, because it crashes with AppLocale at some point, where the Live2D stuff starts, but now it works just like it should. Thanks for posting this! I think I’ll uninstall AppLocale.

  • By the way, how can you make this thing work with the apps, like always starting up with the shortcut you placed on the desktop? Because it’s a bit bad that I have to right-click and then select the stuff…

    • It picks a so-called virus because this tool intercepts specific calls in a program’s memoryspace. Such techniques, known as dll injection are often flagged as suspicious because it’s akin to what some keygens or trojan would do.
      If you look at the details of what’s detected, it should show up with a behavioral signature. The author puts it so:

      Bitdefender picks it up as “Gen:Trojan.Heur.Hype.ci4@amh42@f” so the identification is based on heuristics and not a known signature.

      This said, after installing, right click on exe or shortcut and select the appropriate menu entry.

  • There is no Installer.exe There is only Installer.csproj, which is completely worthless. I do not have a program that can run that file extension, and I have never found one that can. Rather amusingly, if you type in .csproj on google, one of the main help sites that shows up says they don’t know any that can run it either.

    • You do not need the source code to run a program.
      Use the compiled binaries link, that will lead you to an archive such as “Locale Emulator.1.0.7.1.zip”

  • Czechoslovakia, the USSR, and Yugoslavia imploded upon

    do with ideology and spiritual meaning of life.
