Instructions:

Spoiler

Step 1: Downloading and extracting NP2 (Neko Project II)

To download Neko Project II (henceforth referred to as NP2), use the download button, or go to the website of the emulator and download the version of np2fmgen.7z that has the newest "last modified" date, which should be at the top of the list. When NP2 downloads, extract the compressed folder using your favorite de-archiving software. 7Zip and WinRAR are recommended for this, but other software that can read and extract 7zip compressed folders will work just as well.
The program that you need to open is named np21nt.exe. If need be, open the program in Compatibility Mode for Windows XP (Service Pack 2).

Step 2: Emulation Configuration

Once np21nt.exe opens, go to the Emulate tab, then select Configure. Change the following settings:

  • CPU Clock Speed: 2.4576MHz "x 48" or higher. Weak computers may be able to get away with "x 32".
  • Sound Buffer: 100ms or less
  • LPF: Enabled
  • QFM: Enabled
  • Sampling Rate: 44k or higher

When you are finished, the "Configure" screen should look like this:

1.png.c1fa42652aef4bad4a1a86b52c013867.png

Click OK. Then, go to the Device tab, then select Memory. Set the memory to at least 13.6MB. Click OK again.
Next, go to the Screen tab, then select Screen Option. Enable the Use Skipline Revisions option, and set the ratio to the maximum value (255). Hit OK once you are finished.
Now, reset the emulator by going to the Emulate tab, then selecting Reset.

The next two images will show the correct settings for each of the previous two screens, respectively. If I did not mention a setting that you see in the images, it can safely be left at the default.

Step 3: Final Configuration

IMMEDIATELY after you reset the emulator, hold the "END" key on your keyboard until you get to a screen that looks like this:

Go to the second option and press ENTER.

5.png.2bc4e7cf9de97b1d154b4a7ab3b887fd.png

Scroll down using the up and down arrows until you reach the GDCクロック option. Once you reach this point, press the right arrow.
If this is done correctly, the highlighted option should read "2.5MHz". Finally, highlight 終了 and hit enter. Repeat this process one more time.
Finally, go to Harddisk, then IDE #0. This is where you select your .hdi or .t98 files. When you select your game, go to Emulation, then "Reset", and enjoy!

@Definitely not a weeb We are aware of the issue. There isn't much we can do about it, not our website. A little while ago, the website changed from what it used to look like to something different. If they've changed domains, I can't find them. The download here still works.

@Rosel Are you still having the issue? I'm not sure why it's throwing "A:>op" - usually that's a result of not having enough memory, or from an option being set incorrectly, although by the screenshots you sent, that isn't the case...

Literally in tears. I had been using Anex86 wrongly configurated to play Touhou 1-5 since 2013, and the sound was really messed up since it didn't use all the sound channels. Now that I'm finally able to fully listen to the soundtrack... I can't stop. ;-;

I noticed the downloads for the PC-98 games come with .ico files. Is there any way to make a shortcut that will run Neko Project II with the proper file in the IDE slot? Right now, I can run NP2 using the shortcut I created to the file location, but I still have to manually change the IDE slot and reset, and I was wondering if there was a way to do that automatically upon running. Hardly a big deal but it would be really nice.

.ico files are icon files. You could create a .reg (registry configuration) file and apply it with a command line argument to automatically fill a filepath in but I wouldn't recommend doing that as if you mess up something in the registry, you could ruin your whole system. Otherwise, I don't know of a way to do that.

Regarding the stuck at command prompt issue: I get the same result with np2nt.exe, but not with np21nt.exe (the one in the instructions). I'd check the version of NP2 that is being run.

I actually have the same issue, numpad end key doesn't seem to work here either. I'm assuming we're supposed to be booting to the PC-98 equivalent of BIOS here, is there any way we can change the key through the booted UI or am I gonna have to steal my roommate's keyboard to get this going?

I hit the end key (I have a laptop so it's also only the one on the numpad) and I get this screen:image.png.1bd419691f329e52fbfe5f79969fa79b.png

I know for a fact that there's a way to get the text to display properly. HOWEVER, I don't know what that way would be.

educate me
