(In English) Hello. This is PinkPinkPink32 from the internet archive. Sorry for the terrible translation. This was translated using Google Translate. Special thanks to antonizoon for game files. Here is the files for the game (https://ia800407.us.archive.org/view_archive.php?archive=/3/items/pc-98_compilation/PC-98.zip). I used ねこプロジェクトII (https://www.yui.ne.jp/np2/ or https://sites.google.com/site/np21win/) for the emulation and I already configured the emulator so you can play right away :D! So please let me know how the game goes for you!!!
How to use ねこプロジェクトII:
For this version of プリンセスメーカー２, it is on the PC-98 and is PC-98 version of the game and unlike the DOS version where you just put in the files and go. You physically have to move the floppy disks or in this case "the files" to its drive. Now first, you click on floppy disk drive 1 or "FDD1" and insert "プリンセスメーカー2_a.FDI" into the the drive. Then there'll be a message saying to insert floppy disk B in floppy disk drive 2 or "FDD2". I do not know what the message say exactly because I do not speak japanese. The game will periodically ask you to swap disks in floppy disk drive 2 in order to continue the game and will tell you what disk to swap out and swap in. This can be a very annoying after while, especially when you're trying to get invested in the game. Well, think about like this. You had to do this on the real PC-98, so your getting the real experience of playing on a real PC-98 when you're playing the game. Think about that ;). Anyway, enjoy the game!
How to save in ねこプロジェクトII:
Warning!: This part was added in after I already upload the files up to the Internet Archive. If for some reason you are re-downloading this zip file on to your computer and finding that you can save now, that is because I forgot to add in STATSAVE"STATSAVE=true" when I was configuring the emulator. I am so sorry!!
For each save, there is a load and you can tell which one goes with which by looking at the number that is by it. You can name each save and change it. If you want to save, then you go to "stat" and you'll find the saves and loads there. Do not save or load while there is disk activity, it may possibly permanently corrupt the data in the save/load.
How can you tell if there disk activity?:
You can tell if there is disk activity by hearing the disk work in the backgroud. If you're having trouble hearing the disk work, then go to your taskbar and left click on "Neko Project 21" or the Neko Project icon. Then, you'll see a drop down menu come up. Click "tool window". Then you'll see the drives for the disk and you can see which disk is working by the red light. If you don't want the drives there anymore, then left click on "(NP2 tool)" and click "close".
Special thanks to the Tokugawa Corporate Forums for the help with the saves(http://fullmotionvideo.free.fr/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=954)
