  • Q: On day 20 (the day of the ending), the game does not respond. This happens exactly when the ending song should play. I just get a black screen and the game simply stops, leaving me nothing to do. What can I do?
    A: This is due to a problem with your installed video codecs. Installing the CCCP codec pack (or ffdshow) should fix it.
  • Q: I get an error about 'd3dx9_27.dll' that could not be found. What can I do?
    A: You have to update DirectX to be able to play the game.
  • Q: I get a 'createshadererror' when running the game! I have an integrated Intel graphics card and I already installed the latest drivers. What can I do?
    A: Your graphics card doesn't properly support pixel shader, which is required by the game. You can bypass the requirement by manually editing the game settings file config.ini as shown in this video.
  • Q: I get a 'FileCheckError' GameData\Texture2.vac is not present or something like that. What can i do?
    A: Game is not properly installed. Reinstall it.
  • Q: Stuttering/Low FPS when moving the mouse during H-Scenes. What can i do?
    A: This is caused because you have an high DPI mouse wich have a polling rate that the game doesn't support. Go to the control panel of your mouse and lower the "Polling Rate" setting to the lowest one available. For example, with a Razer Naga Epic I lowered it from 1000MHz to 125MHz in the "Razer Control Panel" and solved the problem. NOTE: If you don't have a control panel where make the changes it's because you didn't installed the proper drivers for your mouse. You can download them in the official website of your mouse manufacturer. More info for Razer users here.
  • Q: After I installed the translations/HF Patch my maid lost all her H skills! What can i do?
    A: The translations will break the skills because they also has to be translated in your save game(s). To fix your save game(s) you can use this tool.


  • Q: How do I install plugins/mods/Gold Disk?
    A: Look in the archive (in all the folders). If you can find a *.vac file it's easily installed by just copying them to the "<CM3D install folder>\Plugin" folder (just create the Plugin folder if it doesn't exist).
  • Q: Where do I download the Mods?
    A: The Mods are all at "" *Japanese*. Sometimes the page it's not accessable.
