Narcissu 2 Download Page


All links that follow are for historical reference only and are out of date. Steam has the latest, moreu p to date version.

Here are links to the downloads for the release of Narcissu Side 2nd, English

NOTE This download includes both Narcissu and Narcissu 2 in a single package.

Usage instructions, keyboard-only commands


The server lent to me for hosting these files can sometimes hiccup, but every time someone reports that the links are broken, they work when I test them. So if it doesn’t work, try again in a minute.

I can’t stop you people from mirroring these files, that’s just how the Internet is. But a few requests if you do mirror:

  1. Distribution is free to all, like it is here and for the original game.
  2. I’d like to know where mirrors are so I can link to them
  3. I’d like to know the download counts if possible, at least for the first week or so.
  4. A link back would be appreciated.

    Your download link was horribly slow at 300 kb/s, so I mirrored it at a server that should be a lot faster:[Denpa]_Narcissu_2_Eng_[win32].exe
    I should also be getting daily download stats mailed to me, so I’ll probably be able to give you a download count as well.

    Props to everyone on the localization team. I finished this story in one go. I came into it with high expectations with memories from the original Narcissu… I wasn’t disappointed. All the new characters are simply beautiful and we get to see more sides of Setsumi. It’s hard to believe it (side 2nd’s main story arc) all happened within such a short span of time.

    Thank you so much for the localization. It’s great to finally have the conclusion to this touching story.

    Also, not sure if these are just bugs on my end, but I’ve played through the Agilis translation of both parts voiced, and in both parts it seems like some dialogue is missing voice clips, I’ve never played the original so maybe that’s just how it is. Also Setsumi’s voice track in the epilogue about smiling gets cut short in mid-sentence.

    Responding to a few things:

    > VDZ

    the download numbers you’re providing are very much appreciated. If it’s becoming too much of a hassle for you, feel free to roll them up into weekly numbers (just provide the dates covered) for this week and maybe the next if that’s okay with you. That’d be more than the enough I think.

    > Tsukasa

    CRC errors? What file? it’s possible the download was corrupted. Please check against the MD5 hashes provided to verify you had the correct download.

    > jingplusone

    You’re correct. There’s I think 2 or 3 instances where sound clips don’t exist, not even in the original. Most likely oversights during the original recording sessions.

    I really should come up with a way for people to post their reviews, comments, bug reports… Would this thread do? Or would you guys prefer I spun off a dedicated post?

    Anyone hit problems with Kaspersky?

    narci2.exe is being registered as ‘HEUR:Trojan.Win32.Generic’ on my system…. :(

  75. 06/26/2010 04:27 PM | #

    Huh, that’s really odd… make sure the MD5 hashes match… I know that there’s no trojan in that file, but if they don’t match I can’t say much.

    I suppose it’s Kapersky’s heuristic engine being strict, but if anyone has ideas on how to resolve such things, let me know.

  76. mitorty
    06/27/2010 10:40 AM | #

    I guess it’s Kaspersky. The file hashes do match.
    Btw fyi I used the file ‘[Denpa]_Narcissu_2_Eng_[win32].exe’.
    KIS is also complaining for that file.

    In any case thanks! :)

    i’ve downloaded the game from mainsite. but, when i’m trying to install the game, i got the NSIS error.
    so i try using cmd to install the game, but it stopped in the middle, saying the installer is error.
    the game itself is installed, with size just 270mb from supposed 330mb.
    i try running the game, it can, but not yet playing until the finish.

    note : i happen to downloaded the game 2 times, but still get the same error.

  78. 07/05/2010 05:26 PM | #

    Sort of… Nothing works…
    [Denpa]_Narcissu_2_Eng_[win32].exe (270.69MB) just gives me error about memory or whatever.
    I downloaded it few times, but it can not help…
    Dont know if it is mine private problem or something really wrong with file. Or maybe it doesnt like Windows 7?

  79. 07/05/2010 05:36 PM | #

    GAH I leave for a weekend and this comes up. >_< Check the MD5 hash of the file and compare it against the posted MD5, see if it’s corrupted.

    I JUST download the win32 file, installed, and ran the game. So the file itself isn't corrupted. Perhaps there's a bug in the installer? Are all the people getting errors running Windows 7? I was told it had been tested on that platform, but I'm not sure.

    I installed it on Vista64 Ultimate myself, and I've done it for WinXP, so I know those two definitely work.

  80. 07/06/2010 10:54 AM | #

    MD5 is the same… T_T
    Compability or AppLocale doesnt help…
    By the way AppLoc says “Applocale was unable to launch specified application. Please make sure the application specified is valid.”
    I’ll try on another computer with XP and report %)

  81. 07/07/2010 08:29 AM | #

    It works just fine on XP.
    Maybe i’ll come up with something…
    Or maybe you.
    But it seems now its not compatible with Windows 7…

  82. 07/07/2010 08:56 AM | #

    Copy of installed folder doesnt work on Windows 7.
    With copied register entries either. It even uninstalled properly, but narci2.exe file crashes with error about memory.
    So I am out of ideas T_T
    Well, good luck for you if you will try some optimization. If you will not… Well… I’ll have to play it on some computer with XP.

    My system is XP.
    I tried three different w32-files of the installation pack. Same problem. Any help?

  89. 11/22/2010 12:45 AM | #

    That’s odd, there might be a bug in the installer, but it’s worked for some 4-5k people on windows w/o problems… Could also be corrupted, so check the MD5 hash.

    As a last resort, you can actually take the win32 installer and unpack it using an archive program like 7zip.

    Just dump all the data files into a folder and narci2.exe inside should run w/o problems.

    You can also use a tool, “nsaout”, to extract all the files from the archives in the game. The music would be there too in mp3 format.

    Loved it, the translation, and the music, especially Pineapple Tree or パイナップルの木 and Roadster.

    Long ago, I somehow managed to get 706 MB of FLAC files for 2nd Side’s soundtrack, but I’m completely unable to find it for some reason. I have the sound track in mp3, but FLAC is always nice. Does anyone know where to look? Google nets no results.

    Also, I can’t find any information about Narcissu 3’s soundtrack or music. Surely it must have music somewhere, right?

    Hi there… To Mr/Ms GEM… You mentioned that you have the full soundtrack in mp3. I was wondering if you could share the link also… I (and most probably all who’s looking for it as well) would really, REALLY appreciate it… Much thanks in advance :)

    Would anyone be kind enough to help out a Linux newbie that isn’t literate enough to know how to get through the installation process? ^^’ Step-by-step instructions would be helpful..
