1. Please use proper grammar.
2. It's romaji, and romaji = bad.

And isn't there already a game like this?

I have a better game for you to play. It's called "Install Japanese font and learn your kana". If you google the name of the game I'm sure you'll find the rules. ;)
Don't complain to me that people kick you when you're down. It's your own fault for lying there

Well, on a Japanese site, that doesn't help much, does it?

And I know nothing about PCs, so I can't really help ya there.

For those who absolutely cannot beg, borrow or buy a Windows CD to install the IME and Japanese fonts, Takasugi Shinji has a page that will filter web pages and replace kana/kanji with images of them. (I'd thought that Jim Breen did as well, but can't find a link to it on his home page.)

without the Windows CD, installing the IME may be difficult, but fonts are easy. you should be able to find any Japanese TTF font and drop it in the font folder and be on your way. also *cough* the Windows Japanese fonts are available from many places on the web. just search for 'msmincho.ttf' and/or 'Arialuni.ttf' and/or 'mssong.ttf' and/or 'mshei.ttf'. for a while, Microsoft released certain versions of these fonts for public use, you could just go to microsoft.com and download them... then they changed their mind and un-released them, but you can still find copies of the released fonts all over the place.

for the IME, beg, borrow, copy, whatever somebody else's copy. assuming that you *are* using a legitimate copy of Windows (maybe an OEM version that came with the computer), i fee that you are on safe moral ground if you *obtain* a CD so you can install the IME.

Ok, if you can't get that cd (I had the same problem.. Ooh, the suffering...) go to this website http://www.nihonstudy.com (it's in Spanish though..) go to "recursos", "soporte japonés" and there are 4 programs you can download and install easily.. (The IME version in the website didn't work with my PC...)

Good luck!

I believe that there are also other IMEs that you can use too, such as NJStar.

You can find the japanese fonts on microsoft's website... Unfortunately you can't find the IME there though, perhaps it's because microsoft, windows and anything that has anything to do with the forementioned suck really bad.

You can find the IME for Windows 98 there, what you won't find is an IME that will work on Windows XP, because it is included on the install disk (so there should be no reason a legitimate user would have to download it.)
