Troubleshooting

Make sure to extract the game to its own folder instead of running directly from the ZIP file.
If you don't do so, any saves made will be lost the next time you run the game.


If the game freezes your computer on startup, it's likely caused by a problem with auto-installing fonts.
Go into the Data folder, install all of the fonts, then delete the font files and try running the game again.
It's supposed to install them automatically, but this seems to freeze some systems - deleting the fonts will stop it from trying.

If dialogue doesn't show up or uses the wrong font (which may cause cutoff text), manually install the fonts in the Data folder.


The parts where you must enter a sequence of buttons have had input issues, though they should be ironed out now.
If Z, X, or C do nothing, alternative buttons should work: use Space or Enter for "Z," Escape or Backspace for "X," and Shift for "C."

Music

Below is a list of songs and their sources.
There may be minor spoilers with regard to where songs are used.

The oo39.com songs don't really have proper names, but I put their "tags" in the hover text.

Some songs are from commercial CDs called Free Music Cluster Vol. 1 and Vol. 2.
Thus, only previews are freely available for these tracks.

The SENTIVE songs come in a big pack; download from one of the mirrors at the bottom.

Do not reupload these songs elsewhere without permission from their respective creators.
This especially applies to the ending music.
