[Request] Recettear in Japanese

Seeing that the game is so obviously originally Japanese, I wonder why I can't change the language of the game to Japanese. I believe this would give me a way to fully experience the game as their creators intended.

(Doesn't seem to be a big game, so a language pack owuld hence not be too much of a hassle in terms of harddisk space)

But you already can. Right click in games list -> properties -> language -> 日本語.

I have a request here, in case the devs happen to see this thread: can you change it so that the Japanese version uses Unicode? custom.exe assumes Shift-JIS, and a few things in the main game program do too (such as the "Are you sure you want to quit?" message). You can work around it by using AppLocale, but that's annoying...

Thank you for the tip!

Do you happen to know how to get the Configuration Tool to show proper words when you use the Japanese setup? All I see are bunch of characters and symbols (question marks and triangles) on the buttons and menus instead of Japanese characters.

I could navigate through by remembering what it said when it was running in English, but it'd be nice if it showed proper fonts.

P.S. I'm using Windows 7 Home Premium.

It's probably a little late for that, unfortunately, but we'll pass along the unicode advice for future games. The actual ingame text, hilariously enough, is Unicode and displays regardless of PC settings.

You'll need to switch your computer's language to Japanese for this to display correctly. Information here:

http://www.yesjapan.com/install_japanese/

This still allows you to type in English, mind you.
