I'm trying to use this on cave story + , but when I open the program it doesn't show anything besides a background, and there's no readme file to help, what should I do?

Hi! Sorry, I just saw this. Can you send a screenshot so I can see what you mean by "a background"? The application itself should contain instructions. My guess is that it's not displaying for you? I think you might need to be able to run at least OpenGL 2.1 in order for it to work, that could be the issue.

I have OpenGL 3.3

It gets like this:


Yeah... it's supposed to have some text. I wonder why you're not seeing it... Hm... Is there anything uncommon about your system that you can think of?

Regardless, I imagine the randomizer will still work, on-screen instructions or not. Here's how you can use it:

  1. Drag and drop your Cave Story folder onto the Cave Story Randomizer window. 
  2. If the randomization was successful, you'll wind up with a folder called "data" inside Cave Story Randomizer's folder.
  3. Overwrite the files in your copy of Cave Story with the versions inside that "data" folder. Don't forget to save a backup of the originals!

Still doesn't work, when I do that it just opens the same window as before.

The only thing that occurs to me is that I'm using windows 7...
