The head ghost seems too small. Is there any solution to fix it?

Hi, that is unusual. By 'small' do you mean the sprite is too small? I haven't run into that before but I can try and recreate it.

Thanks, I really appreciate your work. I mean on the first meeting head ghost in the register room, she appears but the sprite looks too small. I tried at different window sizes but the result is the same.

I have the same issue. Must be the upscaling when using a large resolution like 1920 x 1080. I guess it makes the sprites small on some ghosts.

Unfortunately I can confirm it seems to happen at all resolutions. It also seems to happen only after you reload a save file. I'll be doing some more tests.

I've spoken with a Korean modder about this problem. It only occurs after you load a save file, and it seems that the only way to fix it is to reload the area (i.e. load into another area then back again)... Or start a new game.

It seems that this has always been an issue, but I didn't notice it before somehow.

I'll keep an eye on it. I may install an unmodified copy of the game on a Korean Windows 2000 or something just to make sure it's always been there.

I have done this test now - still there. So yeah it seems it's always been there.

Is there any way to run this in windowed mode? I'm trying the dxwnd launcher from the wdlaunch but when the window opens my cursor disappears

Hi, I looked into Windowed mode using dxwnd as well but couldn't get it working comfortably. I ran into similar issues with the cursor.

Hey, I downloaded the game but everytime the cutscene in the beginning ends it crashes? Any ideas?

Hey there, try going into settings and switching your device to something else, like so:

Then try watching the cutscene again to see if it crashes.

If that doesn't work, try just skipping the cutscene right from the start. It's not ideal but may work. The 'Esc' key skips cutscenes.

As a last resort I can provide save files which put you immediately after the opening cutscene. Let me know if you need them.

Hello,
I'm not OP but I have a similar issue and switching the device makes the game not run.
Pressing ESC during the cutscene also makes the game crash so I'm interested in a save file.

Thanks in advance!

Hey, absolutely. Here are the saves (one for each difficulty setting): Mega.nz

To use them you just put them in the saves folder and rename them to "wsavX.sav" where 'X' is equal to the save slot - 1.

e.g. "wsav0.sav" is save slot 1. "wsav1.sav" is save slot 2, etc.

To get to the saves folder there's a "\saves" button in the launcher, which I've outlined here: I.imgur.com

Let me know if you have any other issues.

Thank you for the help! I was able to boot in the game. I also have the HUD.

However, it seems that I have one more issue, when the first choice appeared in the game (this one (I can't link links as a guest so I'm just putting the end of the youtube link, you can add that after the com of the youtube website to see the video): /watch?v=BFB8GqrA_nA&t=38s), the first option is the only one that appears and clicking on it makes the option diseappear and then nothing happens.

Thanks in advance for the help!

That's... interesting. I've never seen that before.

I checked over the save files and can confirm they're fine. The current patch 17.0_041 doesn't have any issues with that dialogue option either. The only thing I can think of is that there might be some inconsistency with your NOP files. (NOP files contain all the game's content, including text.)

Are you using any other mods or previously installed versions of White Day? I would check that the only NOP files in your main folder are as follows: I.imgur.com

Either way I recommend uninstalling the game completely and then doing a fresh install, and see if that fixes the problem. There's an uninstaller in the game's folder (uninstall.exe).

If that doesn't work let me know and I can see if there's anything else that can be done, but this is quite a strange problem, I'm not sure what could be causing it. Sorry about that.

I can always provide another save file but since there are dialogue options you'll have to let me know which options you wanted, and what difficulty setting you're playing on.

I'll let you know if I think of anything else.

Thanks again for the help, I think I kinda messed with files since I had other issues before (I probably had nops from other versions of the game) and I tried to fix some of them so when I put back all of the nops from this version + TUFP into the game folder, I don't have the issue anymore and everything works great it seems!

Sorry about that and thanks again!
Have a good day!

Hello,

I've played the game for a bit and I didn't encounter any game-breaking issues (except the fact that it crashes every 15-20 minutes but it's not that much of an issue so far as I save pretty often) except when I went from Main Building 2 to the New Building, the game crashes. I must have tried 10 times to enter in different ways but it always happens the same, when I click on the choice to go to the new building, the sound of the game cuts off and the game crashes. No loading screen or anything, it doesn't show anything past the choice screen. Do you know to fix this? I have the full install version without modifications except for the fact that I deleted ddraw.dll as it removed the only device option that worked for me, Direct3D HAL.

Hey, sorry to hear you're still having trouble. Sadly it's hard to know what specifically could be causing these issues.

You mentioned you're playing with TUFP, which may be a factor. In its current state, TUFP is known to make the game really unstable due to the additional content added to the game. If you have been playing with it, try playing without it and see if you get the same problems.
Be aware that unfortunately your current save files *may* be tied to TUFP, since they contain information about items that don't exist in the vanilla game.

In general I'm not sure how viable it is to play through the whole game with TUFP right now; it's very experimental.

The only other thing I wonder is if you're playing in console mode. Console mode is very buggy and will crash all the time, especially when trying to load into different areas.
To access console mode you press the 'C' button instead of 'Launch Game', like so: I.imgur.com
If you're clicking Launch Game then it won't be that.

Out of curiosity what are your system specs? e.g. CPU, graphics card and Windows version.
May be useful to know in case someone else comes along with the same issues and same specs.

Thank you for the response! I actually fully reinstalled white day 17.0_041 without the mods, just without the ddraw.dll file and I still had the issue.

I just tried to do the game from the beginning without TUFP with the save file you provided for the beginning of the game and I still have the issue (The game didn't crash in the 30-40 minutes playthough, I think I could go through the janitor before but now I can't, ghosts appeared in the dark and before they didn't and the janitor is now still there during the baby section so I guess it solves some other issues I had), the game sadly still crashes when I'm entering the new building (and as before, going from main building 1 to 2 still works).

I'm not using the console mode as I initially thought it was to close the window.

As for my specs, I have a Pentium Dual-core T4200 (and I guess an integrated graphics card) and 21H1(19043) as the Windows version.

You could try playing on console mode just specifically for the Main Building 2 → New Building load. If successful you can press the '5' key to do a quick save (it overwrites save slot 1 / wsav0.sav, so be careful).

Also you could always just give me your save file and I'll load into the new building for you. Let me know if you want to try that.

There are a few other things you could randomly try and see if it does anything. Like setting the compatibility mode of whiteday.exe to Windows 2000 or XP - although be careful as this will move your saves folder to a different location due to admin rights (long story short White Day has a different save location depending on if it has admin rights or not - either "%localappdata%\VirtualStore\" or in the main White Day directory itself).

If you haven't tried already, you could try unticking D3D8 Wrapper in my launcher and ticking DxWnd instead. Then choosing a DX8 device in the official launcher.

Info about the D3D8 wrapper and DxWnd:
White Day is a Direct3D 7 & 8 game, and the D3D8 wrapper (made by crosire: Github.com ) essentially just diverts D3D8 calls to D3D9 instead. It's been included since Windows 8 dropped compatibility for D3D8, causing weird issues like the game running in 2x speed.
DxWnd is a piece of software which has a feature called timestretch which can make the game run slower to account for the speed issues, so it's a good alternative to using the D3D8 wrapper (although it can make the game drop frames sometimes). Timestretch is enabled by default when you enable DxWnd on my launcher.
ddraw.dll is supposed to help the game run on modern systems as well but for D3D7, although sounds like it's not been helpful in your case. (It's from the WineD3D project: Github.com )

Another thing you could try is using different WhiteDay_p4.dll + WhiteDay.dll files from older versions of the game...
- 1.16: Mega.nz
- Combo Package: Mega.nz
- Original 1.18: Mega.nz

Useful info about these DLLs, how they're used, etc.:
The 'Launch Game' and 'C' buttons simply swap between different DLLs when launching the game. e.g. 'Launch Game' always uses WhiteDay_p4.dll and 'C' always uses WhiteDay.dll.
Those buttons didn't originally say Launch Game and C though. They were actually 'Yes' and 'No' to the question of whether your CPU supported SSE2, which virtually all modern CPUs do nowadays.
For White Day Repackaged I used 1.18 files, replaced WhiteDay.dll with the console mode DLL, and left the SSE2 enabled DLL (WhiteDay_p4.dll) as it is. I hacked the menu to say 'Launch Game' and 'C' to signify the change.

So yeah maybe if you tried using a non SSE2 DLL from 1.18, or tried an older DLL from 1.16 or the combo package, that could make a difference.

Another thing is you could try disabling 'Detailed Shadows' when you go to launch the game. One time I saw someone on a Korean forum mention that option gave them issues. Worth a try.

The last thing that comes to mind is just trying a different version of Windows, or a whole different computer, if you have one spare.

That's all I got for now, fingers crossed one of these work.

I tried in compatibility mode with 98/ME and the launcher didn't launch, same for dxwnd, with XP whiteday.exe didn't launch, with detailled shadows off and all versions/options of the older versions of the game, it had no differences it seems.

I tried to find the command on google but all of the commands I saw on the white day wiki was how to hack items or use no clip. I can give you my save file to load me into the building (mega.nz/file/AlknhSoR#jtLkjcIysHtfah5UPF8YT9sfAskuiSXe_IvYD8GVpFw) but only if that doesn't bother you as you already helped me quite a lot.

No problem. Here's the save file for the New Building (quick saved after loading in): Mega.nz

Thank you for the save file! I was able to go through the rest of the game and see both endings of my route (it crashed right before the credits scene but it's okay, there was nothing after so there are no issues).

Thanks again for your help and have a good day!

Hi emuyia, i was thinking about making a multiplayer mod for white day, the thing is that i don't know anything about that, so maybe you could guide a bit.
