Sheep.exe by NekoNatsume Sheep.exe by NekoNatsume
DOWNLOAD OVER THERE on the menu options -->

Anyone who can remember the 90´s can probably identify this tiny sheep. This was a highly popular desktop pet on its time along with orange.exe and neko.exe.

Sadly i recently discovered that this tiny sheep is truly dead, not only was forgotten but i found out the original exe cant run on window 7( more likely ).

So i decided to create a shimeji based on this 90´s desktop pet!

NOTE : This is for nostalgia purposes only and isnt the original exe, so it doesnt contains all of the animations.

( Also did you knew this tiny sheep is called poe and got its own cartoon called ¨stray sheep¨? )

To Use:
- Open the ¨shimeji.exe ¨ on your archive , is the one with the little screen guy.

Oh my word used to love this little guy! My mom brought him home on a floppy one day from school and I used to play with him all the time! Oh and Neko too! I actually still have a floppy disc with these two on it somewhere too bad they no longer work. I really wish I could get him again for windows 8.1 It would be so fun to have him run around again!

I guess you aren't updating him anymore judging by the comments but if you ever do could you let me know please I would love to have these guys again!

I managed to run the sheep on Windows 7 64 bit by installing Java 6 JRE 32 bit and running Shimeji.jar

@NekoNatsume:
Thank you for the work. My wife and me are happy now.
I guess you will not update the programm or add the missing animations?
I would like to do this, but I need more information about the development tool.

Sadly i only made the sheep.exe, but i might consider making neko.exe someday, since its only a couple of animations. Still it wont be the original, just a shimeji file that looks like neko.exe.

Yes, the real sheep still exists, sadly most windows 7 computers wont run the program (since is way too old ), thats why i made this one. Is impossible for me to replicate the whole sheep, since it would require a lot of extra coding @x@U

I do have the photos ( the link you sent me is the set i used ), the problem is, the program only allows me to use a set number of frames, each extra frame requires special extra coding.

I would need to code, fix and animate each frame and that could get pretty complex.

I can't get the exe to run. There's a jap warning message. Something about Java 6 that redirects me to the Java download site. And I've already got Java 7 installed because I use it so I don't really know what the problem is. :(

I also remember having a hamster walking, eating and sleeping on my desktop but that was when I was stilling using Windows 1995 haha... good memories

I will try to make others based on old desktop mascots, but you need the graphics of the pet for that, and is a little difficult to find them. I might also vectorize them so they will be a little bigger, with better quality.

You clicked the little shimeji head? Im unsure of whats wrong really, maybe right click it and run it has administrator? or else change it to run on windows xp. Personally im not sure on how to fix that.

I havent updated my java, and im unsure if the program refuses to work with newer versions and only uses Java 6 to work. Ill try to see more into that, hopefully there is a working version for Java 7 ( if that ends up being the cause of the problem ).

All you gotta do is click on the shimeji.exe icon and it will run, is it a problem downloading it? Maybe the computer might not be compatible.

Ill try to see if i can fix the problem for you if you need me to. Ill be glad to help.

The original works 100% on XP , at least i used my Virtual XP and it worked with no trouble at all.

The issue happens only with Windows 7 i believe. Since a lot of people seem more interested on this project i might try and make it ¨closer¨ to the original.

Until someone tells me how to run the original in Windows 7 , i will just suppose you cant. Theres a looong looong list of shit ya cant do with Windows 7 sadly.

Windows 7 ¨cant¨ run 16 bit programs or something like that i think.
