We want everyone to be informed of known issues with the game ahead of purchasing. Due to the age of the game, these are the issues that may impact modern systems.
• There is a 2-3 second delay on modern systems when loading MIDI tracks.
Game not loading? Try setting the compatibility mode for the .exe file to Windows 98 or Windows XP. You can do this by right clicking on T_LOVE95.EXE, select the Compatibility tab, click the “Run this program in compatibility mode for”, and select the Windows version.
If the above doesn’t solve the issues, the issue might be resolved by using a program like Locale Emulator. You can download Locale Emulator here.
FAKKU is working to fix these issues, but given the age of the game and the loss of the original source code (both the original Japanese and English releases), we are not confident these issues will be resolved.
It’s the summer of your senior year in college. Get fit, study, be artistic; level up your character and make the most out of your daily life. Experience a truly classic relationship simulation with the re-release of this PC-98 cult classic. We wish you all the luck…and may you find True Love.
True Love was released by Japanese developer Software House Parsley for the NEC PC-98 in 1995. Four years later, the game was localized for Windows 95 and released in the U.S. and Europe by Otaku Publishing. Despite its popularity, the game has been in licensing limbo and only available to play through unofficial sources… UNTIL NOW!
The majority of work put into the re-release of True Love ’95 involved uncovering the existing license holders so that fans can support this classic for its 25th anniversary. The game was then ported to the Ren’Py engine to enable it to run smoothly on modern systems with some fabulous quality of life upgrades, such as the ability to resize the window while keeping the retro pixel art looking as good as ever!
