Generating the Japanese Locale[edit]

The location of the locale configuration file and method for generating the locale can vary from distro to distro, so instructions are split in to sections by distro.


This should work for all apt-based distros. Run as root :

locale-gen ja_JP.UTF-8


Uncomment ja_JP.UTF-8 UTF-8 in /etc/locale.gen, then run as root :


Void Linux[edit]

Uncomment ja_JP.UTF-8 UTF-8 in /etc/default/libc-locales, then run as root :

xbps-reconfigure -f glibc-locales

Using EasyRPG Player[edit]

EasyRPG Player works flawlessly.

Download the RTP files from here then extract the RTP files with

1=LANG=ja_JP.UTF-8 unrar x -ad RTP2000JP.rar

Then extract VH with :

1=LANG=ja_JP.UTF-8 unrar x -ad VH_*.rar 

and merge the RTP files into VH with :

rsync --verbose --archive --ignore-existing RTP2000JP/RTP\($'\346'$'\227'$'\245'$'\346'$'\226'$'\207'\)/ VH_1601025_translated_V1/

(make sure to keep the slashes on the ends of the paths.) Then add :


to your RPG_RT.ini above GameTitle then cd into the directory and run :



  • EasyRPG Player won't run if something else has exclusive control of the (ALSA) audio device (e.g. pulseaudio)
