    Okay - so here's the deal. I downloaded and installed Steins;Gate. I updated to version 1.20 I tried running the 1.20 crack, and the english patch. It constantly gives me this error (which is convienently in Japanese)

    (Sorry for the large image - use.com likes it that size, I guess)
    Anyways - here's my information.
    I have my system locale set to Japanese.
    I'm running Windows XP SP3 Professional.
    My specs:
    Intel Pentium III
    Mobile CPU: 1133MHZ
    1.13GHZ, 1.0GB of RAM

    Just to let you guys know, I've played many visual novels - all without any problems. What my real question is - is has anyone else on here gotten the error message above, and if someone would be so kind - what does the error message say? Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance!

    I can take a guess. SSE2 is an instruction set, I only know this because of PCSX2 (the PS2) emulator, but anyhow... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SSE2 I'm guessing that the game requires it and your processor doesn't support it (or something along those lines).

    the pentium III does not have SSE2 only SSE1

    I think it means SSE2 instuction set not enable. (I think, I'm not good at japanese) Pretty much you can't run it unless you got sse2.

    HOW DO YOU HAVE A PENTIUM III?!?! My little sister used to be on a Pentium IV and THAT felt a chore sometimes.

    Well, it's a P3 Mobile, so it's a laptop. Maybe he got it as a gift or something.

    I still have a functional Pentium 2 in storage. The older ones stopped working.

    It's an old hand-me-down laptop I got from a friend.
    Suprisingly, it runs extremely fast - webbrowsing is awesome, and the thing is pretty damn small.
    And the only real stuff I run on it are the older FPS's (fps genre = major meh) and the far more interesting visual novels. Up until this point, I saw no reason to upgrade since VN's are the only real apps besides Firefox that I run on this thing.
    Well - I'm probably going to end up receiving my friend's newer laptop with INTEL PENTIUM IV soon. So I should *hopefully* be able to run Steins;Gate then...

    I'm confused as to why you want to play Steins;Gate when you are not fluent in Japanese. The error translates to "Your computer system does not have the ability to run SSE2 instructions".

    :P I see what you mean, but Steins;Gate is rated 15+ so without knowing japanese its pretty much like trying to read a book without knowing any of the words.

    It's got an english patch out right now. So I could read it - if I had a Pentium 4 or higher.

    It's a SciFi theme Visual novel game.
    It has been adapted in few manga, and later in anime.
