This is the FAQ, which answers frequently asked questions. If you have a question not answered here, try YandereDev’s FAQ for non Mac-specific problems or Downloads page for controls. If you can’t find it there either,  comment or email me at figgy city at gma il dot co m (no spaces at all and at and dot replaced with @ and . respectively) and PLEASE COPY ANY ERRORS  because I can’t do anything without them.

Q: How do I fix class ppgt errors?

A: Get launcher 2.0.

Q: I have X foreign keyboard layout, how do I open the debug menu / easter eggs / reset the day?

A: For American keyboards, use this layout for reference:

YM Controls US

For ANY international keyboard, use the positions described in this reference, not the labels (which are specific to the UK layout):

YM Controls International

Q: I have a Macbook / Magic Trackpad with no right click button. How do I open the camera?

A: Check this option in System Preferences > Trackpad to enable right clicking with the trackpad, then hold down two fingers and use Ctrl to take a picture. Credit to http://www.extensions.in.th/amitiae/2014/prefs/track.html for Trackpad preferences because I don’t have a Macbook for reference.

Q: Why does the incinerator make annoying noises after I dump something in it?

A: The cause of this issue is unknown, however there is a patch to fix it! To apply it, extract the zip file.For launcher 2, this patch is applied automatically provided you are on the latest version. Otherwise find your .app file. Then right-click on YandereMac.app and click “Show Package Contents” then Contents. If you see a Data folder, simply drag the sharedassets10.assets file into it.

Link to the latest patch: Here

Q: I see a “root” folder when I download the zip file. Where’s YandereMac?

A: Due to a flaw in my automated build packaging system that is run on my personal server (yes I am that lazy) the zip file somewhat replicates the file structure of my server. If you click through all the folders (root and ym_base in most cases) you should find a YandereMac.app, ready to drag into /Applications (or place on the desktop if you are as messy as 99% of the installation videos on YouTube)

Q: Why is the blood on Yandere-chan’s body black?

A: I don’t know why, and as a result there is currently no patch available.

Q: How do I get the launcher to work if it freezes in the middle of a download?

A: Get launcher 2.0. If it still happens, try relaunching the launcher then comment below.

Q: X happened to my launcher’s version of the game. How do I reinstall it?

A: On launcher 2, hold option (alt) down. You will see this dialog:Screen Shot 2016-06-26 at 09.44.37

Click “Reinstall Game”, quit the launcher with command + q and relaunch it. Just clicking Play on this dialog will not reinstall the game.

Another method is to just open Terminal and type in:

defaults write uk.figgy.YandereMac installedVersion notInstalled

After that reopen the launcher and it will redownload.

Q: How do I add mods / skins to the game?

A: For launcher 2, type cmd+shift+g then “~/Library/Application Support/YandereMac” without quotes otherwise find your .app file. Start by right clicking on YandereMac.app then click Show Package Contents then Contents. If you see a Data folder go into it. For skins, drag the files into the StreamingAssets folder. For mods that have .assets file extensions (like the aforementioned furnace patch) or mods that have several folders, somewhat duplicating the existing file structure (like the post-April 4th Osana mod) just drag them into the Data folder. Make sure you download the latest version of your mod for the current build!

Q: How do I get into the game if there is no mouse?

A: You need to use WASD or the arrow keys to move around the menu and E to select.

  1. I was able to download both Yandere Simulator for my Macbook Pro and the patch to fix the incinerator noise, but I can’t install the patch because when I downloaded the game, there was NO ZIP FILE. I just got the pink and white heart icon that says YandereMac. When I click on it, it takes me right to the configuration screen before I launch the program. There is no way to install the incinerator patch from here. What now?


      1. Cool. I can deal with it for now. It’s more annoying that the police can still find a body once it’s been burned by the incinerator (which I assume is just a glitch – fortunately, there’s more than one way to get rid of a corpse).

        I noticed that some of the controls on the debug menu do not match the keyboard on a Macbook Pro. There’s also no way to take a photograph, as you need both the right and left mouse buttons to do it, and once one part of the touchpad is occupied, no other parts of the touchpad work. This prevents the player from completing the core game mechanic of panty shots for Info-chan. You are probably aware of all this, though, but just in case you’re not.
