PPD : Project 「Project DXXX」

Hi. It’s only 2 months away from my university test but heck I’ll still on search for my personal reality.


I just want to let you people without PSP know that you can also play Project Diva on your PC! (or Mac on bootcamp). KHCmaster, has spent time on building a game with similar concept of Project Diva you lucky people already play on PSP. It’s called PPD (short for Project “Project DXXX”)For you who haven’t played it, it’s a good relief. He remade the game entirely loosely based on .Net Framework and make use of directshow. Putting the technical issues I don’t comprehend entirely aside, it’s a good game. I don’t know how similar it is to the original PSP version (I’m not the lucky ones) but I’m enjoying it.

Before you flame me for saying how not similar it is, I’m not talking about changing Miku’s costume or making your own room and such. It’s rather mimicking the gameplay itself. It’s a good experience really. The game doesn’t use CG videos as the background, but that can be arranged. How? The game basically plays over the video of a certain song. A certain song that has been configured for PPD. I'll explain..

How to install game (English):

The original author’s so awesome that he provides the FULL GUIDE TO INSTALL AND PLAY the game. It’ll be rude if I copy paste the whole page since the guide would look like a copy-paste if I were to write it myself. If you’re too lazy to click and see the guide then:



System Requirements:
・Windows PC (XP, Vista, Server 2003, Server 2008)
 ・Speaker, Headphones, any sound device
 ・Keyboard or joystick (mouse or other pointing device is neccesary in PPDeditor in addition)
・ Processor: 400 MHz Pentium processor or equivalent (Minimum); 1GHz Pentium processor or equivalent (Recommended)
・ RAM: 96 MB (Minimum); 256 MB (Recommended)
・ Hard Disk: Up to 500 MB of available space may be required
・ Display: 800 x 600, 256 colors (Minimum); 1024 x 768 high color, 32-bit (Recommended)

Code Library Requirements:
 ・Microsoft .NET Framework
 ・DirectX Runtime
 ・SlimDX Runtime
 ・DirectShow.NET

○ Microsoft .NET Framework HERE
There might be problem downloading .NET Framework if you don’t have genuine Windows. There’s a little trick to bypass that genuine check but it’s not honorable to mention it here.

○ DirectX runtime HERE

○ SlimDX runtime HERE
Download and install “SlimDX Runtime (March 2009 SP1).msi” (NOT August 2009)

○ DirectShow.NET HERE
Download DirectShowLibV2-0.zip



You have to install codecs to play videos (mp4, flv,etc) if you don't have them. If you have the public ffdshow you get from K-Lite Codec pack or similar, please install these in addition for your codec.

○FLVSplitter

○MP4Splitter
Splitter for MP4

Though, installing the game may not be as smooth as you might think. The game needs lots of extended coding libraries and for certain reason, the game can also just hate you and not work at all despite that you have already have everything necessary. If that happens, you can ask the game maker personally through e-mail which can be seen in his site or his twitter.
