A quick Neko x64 update!

Oh no!

Oh no!

For anyone who’s been using neko x64 on Windows Vista or Windows 7 and seeing something like the above, it turns out the fix was really easy and really simple. As mentioned by mikesword221, all you have to do is make it ‘always on top’.

Just right click on the cat in the task bar (he may be hiding, check under the up arrow…)

And make your settings something like this:

Configure Neko

Configure Neko

Then hit ok and Neko will now look normal, with no more ghosting.

Later on I’ll have to make an installer, and fix it so that neko is always on top.

Glorious Neko returned!

About neozeed

What is there to tell? I've loved UNIX like things since I was first exposed to QNX in highschool (we had the Unisys ICONS!), and spent the better time of my teenage years trying to get my own UNIX... I should have bought Coherent in retrospect.. Anyways latched onto Linux in 1992, and then got some old BSD admin books and have been hooked on the VAX BSD & other big/ancient things since...!

  1. I can’t seem to get the neko application to run at all in Windows 7. I opened up the .exe and sorted out my settings, but when i clicked ok, I didn’t get a cat, or an icon in the taskbar 🙁

  2. Hey neozeed, I just tried running this 64-bit version of Neko on my 64-bit version of Windows 7 Home, but I noticed that if I add a new cat and choose to change its appearance, it always states that the .icl file doesn’t have 32 animations, even though the same filed worked on Neko98. :-\

    • It could be an incompatibility with file type sizes and whatnot. I don’t think I ever tested with skin sizes, I’ll have to investigate..
