How can I keep the Japanese file names when I download and extract new MMD models? Do I have to use Applocale to keep the file names from getting scrambled?
Bandisoft’s free Bandizip® software
lets you keep the original Japanese file names!
Over the years that I have been enjoying MikuMikuDance, the on-going bugaboo has been the scrambled file names that occur when you unzip a Japanese model… I have been using the 7-Zip/Applocale routine as my favorite method… but just today I was pointed to Bandizip.
Download the Bandizip set-up file and follow the defaults as you run that program. I opted to not add the icon to my toolbar… but I DID go for the desktop icon.
Using Bandizip is easy. Double-click the desktop shortcut icon… navigate to your zipped folder… Click the Code page button to select Japanese… and then click Extract. I just clicked OK for the defaults… and there was the new folder with the Japanese file names… too awesome!
Too late for your existing models…
… unless you still have the model’s original zipped folder.
… and even so…
You will find that the model, when loaded, may still have the NULL bone names. That’s always a problem… but our xxBodger has a solution using PMDE and Google Translate.

I might be proud that worked… thanks…
Thank you, this saved me
Hi, even if i switch to japanese in bandizip, the readme text files always still come out scrambled, is there any way to fix that?
Yes… translate those Japanese ReadMe files… how to turn that “scrambled” text into Japanese and then use Google Translate to see it in English.
Yep there’s an easy fix: localize your PC to read Japanese characters.
you can change the coding in winrar by pressing Ctrl +E…. just saying
I did not know that… Thank you!
Thank you very much.This is only solution that work for me
I´m have a Problem and I´m hope that anyone can help me. I have installed the Bandizip App, and have followed the introductions but it doesnt work…
What exactly doesn’t?
Wouldn’t it be easier to change your computer’s locale to Japanese? None of my file names come out scrambled usually.
That’s a good solution too, but it’s not realistic for everybody– some people need to maintain their own locale, maybe to keep another language from scrambling.
Thank you !
