How To: Vector Pages Downloads

Posted in everything, how to at 2:14 pm by the2bears

Update: Please see the updated version of this how to article here.

A lot of the Japanese games featured here are downloaded from Vector Pages. I remember my first few attempts at navigating a Vector link – I kept going around and around in circles. Here then is a pictorial guide to downloading from Vector.

The first image is a detail of the page usually linked to by the developer. There you’ll find a link to the “download” page, which presents you with some different download options (FTP, HTTP, etc.) The HTTP link is the one indicated on the second image, and after clicking on that you’ll be taken to a page similar to the third image. The download should start automatically after a few seconds.

Let me fill in a few more details. You’d need East Asian fonts installed to read this comment (and Vector pages for that matter).

「ダウンロード」: “download”. Definitely one word worth remembering.

「フリーソフト」: “free software” / “freeware”

「サポートページ」: “support page”. Usually the author’s homepage.

「スクリーンショット」: “screenshots”

「現在、FILENAME.EXT をダウンロードしています。」: “Presently downloading FILENAME.EXT.”

「しばらく待ってもダウンロードが始まらない場合は」: “In case the download does not start even after waiting for a while…

「ここをクリックしてください」: “Please click here”

[…] Once you get to the download page, you may find that you need some instructing as to where to get the file. Luckily, the2bears has posted a guide to downloading from the pages. […]
