Date Ariane

Play the mega online hit in a stand alone version for PC, Mac, Linux and Android:

Updates: Due to a number of problems a few people have reported, I am in the process of recompiling new versions of all my games using Renpy 7.3.2 and using Mediafire instead of Secureserver.  See this post for details.

Date Ariane was first released as an online game in 2004 and constantly upgraded until 2011.  In 2014 a “10th Anniversary Edition” was released with all new pictures.

In 2015 the code was completely rewritten from HTML/Javascript to Renpy/Python and released as a stand alone game.

Stand Alone Renpy Version:
Most recent build 200, PC and Linux only, dated 9 Sept 2018. Mac updated 30 Sept 2018 to include a proper icns file.  build notes

Date Ariane HD Windows Version
Mediafire Download
Secureserver Download

Download,unzip, then open the folder and launch Date Ariane.exe or Create a shortcut

Note: Some have run into issues with Date Ariane.exe missing, due to their virus scan software detecting a false positive. Check your virus scan’s quarantine folder if this happens, or ignore the warning if prompted.

Second Note: Some have run issues with “Archive is corrupt” errors when unzipping the download.  The fix seems to be to update your unzipper program.

    Is there a way to update the game or do we have to install it again? I hope I don’t have to reinstall because I don’t wish to lose my achievements.
    I’m using the Android version.

    • arianeb July 3, 2017 / 1:56 pm

      You have to reinstall, but it shouldn’t erase the achievements or saved games.

        1. App Store publishing requires a Mac, I don’t have a Mac.
        2. Apps like Date Ariane get rejected from the App Store.
        3. Non-app Store apps can only be loaded on jail broken phones, which voids the warranty.

    yall need to make a version for chromebooks

    • arianeb July 23, 2017 / 7:21 pm

      Linux version should work on chromebooks.

    • yetisyny October 7, 2017 / 11:14 pm

      Most Chromebooks should probably be able to run the Android version, given that support for Android apps is being added to most existing Chromebooks. (That is along with the Linux version of course.)

  19. Arthur July 31, 2017 / 5:41 am

    Hi, I’m on a dial-up connection (yes, they still exist). My internet provider allows me only 3 hours online at one session. Even your “classic” version file (88MB) takes about 6 hours to download. Normally I can pause a download, log off, then go back to continue it during successive sessions. For some reason when I try to download from your storage area, this doesn’t work (I’m using Firefox browser and Win XP). The only difference I see between other downloads I’ve tried and your files is that with yours the download window power bar does NOT show me the total MB of the file I am downloading. Rather than give an estimated time based on file size, I am told “Unknown time remaining”. Also when I hit the “pause” button to pause the download, the power bar continues to scroll as if the download is still in progress. Of course once I log off the internet & get back on, this bar is no longer scrolling, but when I attempt to continue where I left off (with my next logon), the download fails rather than finishes. An attempt to restart my download results in an alleged almost instant completed download, but it’s only 20.0 bytes long. In reality, the file is empty, not even an error message to give me a clue as to what is going wrong. – I know this isn’t really your problem, but any idea how I might be able to succeed other than to use a friend’s PC, copy the download to a thumb drive and then install to my PC from it?

    • Joe August 16, 2017 / 10:53 pm

      Try downloading wget for your platform.

      Then you should be able to copy/paste the URL to the game file to feed wget. In Linux, you’d just do this on a command line.

      The power of wget is that it’s “robust in failover” – you should be able to stop it at any time and restart it with the same command line later and it will resume where it left off. Very handy when grabbing those 4.6GB Linux distribution DVDs. XD

      Of course, this won’t work for files behind captcha protection and the like, but I think Ariane’s stuff is openly available (but I could be misremembering.)

  20. shane August 2, 2017 / 11:46 am

    when i extract the zip file for windows, it will unzip however it shows 2 errors…. 1) unexpected end of data 2) data error: funsteak1.jpg and when i run the exe file it says its not configured correctly and to reinstall the application

      It sounds like it didn’t download properly.

    Where can I download Date Ariane 10th Anniversary Edition on my computer.

    • arianeb September 13, 2017 / 2:12 am

      The “Offline HTML Version” on the download page is the same thing as the 10th Anniversary Edition.

      • Rob September 13, 2017 / 3:00 am

        I have windows computer

      • arianeb September 13, 2017 / 3:18 am

        You just need a browser, preferably Firefox

      • Rob September 13, 2017 / 3:23 am

        I have Microsoft edge

  28. Rob September 13, 2017 / 2:05 am

    is there a way to erase the achievements or saved games, I enjoy Date Ariane so I want to play it over again.

    • arianeb September 13, 2017 / 2:28 am

      Saved games are located in two places, so you need to erase both to start over:

      1. Not sure where to find it on Mac or Linux, but on a windows computer you can find it by typing “%appdata%” in your computer’s search field, then click, “roaming”, then “renpy”, then “dateariane”.

      2. Another copy can be found in the game directory. Go to where you installed the game, open “games” then “saves”

      In these directories, you will find a file called “persistent”. If you delete both of these files, all the game data will be erased and it will be like you are starting the game brand new. You can also delete old saved games as well.

  29. Rob September 13, 2017 / 3:46 am

    ok thanks for the help hopefully it works I have a lot of persistent I’ll delete them all.

  30. Rob September 14, 2017 / 1:15 am

    I deleted all of persistent but my game still has all of the saved games. I thought you said I will have brand new game?

    • arianeb September 14, 2017 / 1:20 am

      Erasing persistent in both directories erases all the achievements, but the saved games are also stored in those same directories, so you can just delete the directories if you want.

      • Rob September 14, 2017 / 1:41 am

        is directories a name of the file?

      • arianeb September 14, 2017 / 3:40 am

        Directory is another name for folder. Sorry I’m an old school computer geek.

      • Rob September 14, 2017 / 3:49 am

        Ok, that’s what I thought. I’ll delete all the Directory.

      • Rob September 14, 2017 / 5:37 am

        I don’t know why I’m a little trouble deleting all the Directory.

      • Rob September 14, 2017 / 5:52 am

        I highlight Directory file to recycle bin.

      • Rob September 14, 2017 / 3:39 am

        still have all the save games, but I tried to delete directories. The save game are still there.

  31. Rob September 14, 2017 / 1:51 am

    where should I do find directories?

    Which Engine do you use?

  38. Federico December 10, 2017 / 7:54 am

    Ciao 🙂

    First of all thank you: I have been playing your Dating Simulator about a decade ago and I recall a lot of hours of fun.

    I bumped into your new (?) website almost accidentally and curiosly took a look: at a first guance, I was impressed of your persistency in continuing to update and improve the graphics of your game.

    Also, I found out that you have developed a brand new game, that I will be glad to check out and a “love/frienship” short novel that I just greedly read.

    I noticed that your dating game was rebuilt and translated in french, german and spanish. Now it is natural for me to wonder if you could be interested in an italian translation.

    If so, please let me know (just drop a reply line here) and I would be pleased to translate your script in italian (my native speech) as a “thank you gift” for all the excitement that you have been giving to me and, possibly, to all the other italian gamers.

    I really wish you all the best for both of your real and virtual lifes, Ariane. A warm hug from Italy,

    Federico 🙂

    PS: I will download and try your new version of the game as soon as possible, just for the curiosity to see if my “pick up” skills had a little improvement across the years. Thank you again 🙂

        Where is the download link?

      • arianeb December 18, 2017 / 10:22 pm

        Where it says “Date Ariane Android Version”, just remember it will not download directly to an android device, you need to download to another device and transfer the APK file to your phone, see notes above.

  40. lojo December 24, 2017 / 4:44 pm

    windows says file is invalid when i try to open .zip, says its empty when i try to extract. tried to ope with 7zip but there is error with archive.rpa

    can you help me how to update 1.2 to 7.2

    • arianeb January 20, 2018 / 5:59 am

      7.2 is an old version of the classic online game. 1.2 is the latest version of the new stand alone game.

  43. B. G. January 7, 2018 / 5:26 pm

    idk why but ı wanted to say that I’m not actually Taha Faruk Yüksel, just he WAS my friend and he hates stuff like that

  44. pieTOM January 16, 2018 / 7:40 pm

    Hi Ariane, i’m a fan and aspiring game dev. So… I can’t download the renpy version, that I will use for study purposes (of course) can you give me some light? Thanks

    • arianeb January 20, 2018 / 5:17 am

      The rpy files are included in the game. If you have the latest Renpy downloaded it is possible to edit the game. I consider distribution of “custom” versions of the game to be a copyright violations, but I am totally cool with people tinkering with the code. I include the code for that reason.

  45. NephNes February 2, 2018 / 5:20 pm

    Are there any new versions or updates planned? Maybe new achievements, new endings, etc.?

  46. CharlesHink April 4, 2018 / 8:56 pm

    • arianeb August 21, 2018 / 9:15 pm

      server may occasionally be busy. I downloaded it fine.

  52. Charles Hinkle August 21, 2018 / 11:23 pm

    I hope this game will be updated to let you play as female.

    Hi, can you please fix the MAC download? I tried different times but it say to me that the zip file is damaged.
    Thanks a lot in advance!

    (The file that is impossible to extract is “Date”)

    • Ian September 2, 2018 / 12:21 pm

      Same problem here but happens in Windows 10, every time I try to download says the file ia damaged :/

  54. Seras September 3, 2018 / 1:02 pm

    Hi. The Win version also says that file is corrupt on extraction. If you can chek it out would be great!

    Thanks a lot for your hard work!

    • arianeb September 3, 2018 / 6:06 pm

      I’ve checked on it. I’ve downloaded it and extracted it and played the new extraction version and it plays fine.

      • Ian September 7, 2018 / 6:25 pm

        Hey, sorry to bother but are you sure everything is fine? Because I tried downloading and extracting it but it gives me the same error, any ideas of why this is happening? I really would like to play since I haven’t played this in years and miss playing it :/

      • Munchycat September 13, 2018 / 12:46 pm

        I have the exact same issue. Can you please refrain from using for public downloads. They are extremely slow and often have issues, it take me 1 hour to download the game and my internet is just fine and may be due to my living location as I live in scandinavia. Please use something like megasync, this would also stop the link from ever expireing (if that is an issue) and it has a way superior download speed and security, ontop of that is also has a client like dropbox does. Also you can use mega for free you don’t need to pay, hell I am even willing to upload it for you.

  55. Morteus September 17, 2018 / 7:08 am

    Great to play this again! Though I’m still kinda nostalgic about the original 🙂

  56. yetisyny September 18, 2018 / 12:50 pm

    You should really make an icon for the Mac version of Date Ariane. It currently just uses the default RenPy icon. The icon is the file /Contents/MacOS/Resources/icon.icns inside the package.

    You already successfully did this for Something’s In The Air and gave it its own icon.

    I managed to make an icon.icns file for Date Ariane but I cannot do it as well as you since I do not have the original artwork. For some of the required sizes I had to upscale and downscale things and it is the most obvious that something is wrong with the upscaled ones since there is not enough detail. Also the file size of my icon.icns file for Date Ariane is much bigger than the file size for the one you made for Something’s In The Air. So I think you could do a better job at making an icon file for it on Macs than I could.

    I know for a fact you can do this better than me since you already did it for another game quite brilliantly, just please make the icon file for Macs for Date Ariane, the same way you did it for Something’s In The Air. Having it be the default RenPy icon of that anime girl, I don’t think is good because it doesn’t reflect your creative vision for this game, instead it is just the RenPy icon. And I play multiple RenPy games and it doesn’t do for more than one of them to have the same icon.

    Anyway good job on the HD graphical update for the game itself! An already great game is now even better! Thanks for all your hard work!

    • arianeb September 18, 2018 / 1:08 pm

      Thanks. I don’t own a mac and did not know I needed a different icon file for it.

      • yetisyny September 19, 2018 / 5:40 am

        Oops I made a minor mistake in the last post, the icon file location is /Contents/Resources/icon.icns, not /Contents/MacOS/Resources/icon.icns. Anyway Mac .apps use an icon file of the “icns” format in the /Contents/Resources subdirectory.

        RenPy actually has directions on how to bundle your icns icon here, as well as directions on how to convert to this format: Anyway you did a great job with this in Something’s In The Air and it has its own icon. If you follow those RenPy directions it ought to work fine even if you don’t have a Mac to test it out on. Your games work fine on Macs, I have tested them.

  59. mo__ September 21, 2018 / 12:40 pm

    Hey Ariane,

    Thanks for keeping this game alive and reguarly updating it more than a decade in …
    Unfortunately, I’m also having trouble with the Mac version. The download finishes without problem, but upon unpacking the Zip file I get the message that the file could not be “decrunched” (whatever that means). I can ignore the message, but then it just keeps bringing up errors for other files. :-/

    • mo__ October 3, 2018 / 10:10 am

      Whatever it was, it’s working now. Once again, thank you for this great game, and for supporting it for so long. 🙂

  60. Russo September 30, 2018 / 1:56 am

    Hello. I’m sorry for I am commenting here to complain. The server used to host the files is rather slow, takes ages to download on a really good connection, downloads about 20mb and “finishes”. As soon as you open the error message from WinRAR greets you and, of course, it’s not possible to extract or play. I really with you’d reconsider the file hosting service, since I couldn’t find any other possible download option to this version. I really want to play the HD 2.0 😀

Not only does the download go at an extremely low speed – which I’m fine with ignoring, this being a fun FREE game – but all the times it was interrupted before fully downloading, leaving the corrupted file inaccessible. Please see to this issue.

    First of all, really nice and well done job of yours.
    While experimenting the game, I’ve found the following bug:
    On the current version (1.1) [Android/Windows/MacOS does not matter]
    When on MakeOut5, with dress=1, the script get an exception for the MOPet / MOThigh / MOBack as for position 1 there is no image defined.

      I’ll check it out. A few have reported similar bugs, but no one could replicate it.

  65. Jambrong December 6, 2018 / 3:03 am

    I can not download the Renpy Windows version. the download always completed at different file sizes, 6mb, 22mb, 124 mb, etc… havent reach 340mb but my browser (I tried using Firefox & Edge) always says that it was completed.
    So whenever I trid to unzip the file, always says that it is not complete.
    could you help to upload it in another free server like mediafire or something else??

    Do i need to download both windows and android version to play on android?

      • Red December 21, 2018 / 7:56 am

        So,when i installed the apk,i can play the game already?

      • arianeb December 21, 2018 / 8:51 am

        If the apk was installed correctly, the app should show up on your home screen.

  67. Macuser January 5, 2019 / 7:18 pm

    help.. I downloaded the zip file on mac and tried to extract then it says “operation not permitted”. and i somehow extracted the file by using “the unarchiver” app, but i still couldn’t open it

  70. Mr. J March 11, 2019 / 12:31 pm

    Are you 100% sure that the latest version for Windows (at least) works?
    Windows cannot open the ZIP file, saying it is corrupt.
    I have used the Unzip tool that comes with Windows OS, 7Zip and WinWar.
    I have also tried to repair using WinWar, but WinWar says there is nothing to repair, and just unzips, but the exe still won’t work, saying that the exe is missing, despite me opening the exe, with it’s own exe.
    I have tried other Windows OS machines, ranging from Windows 7, 8, and 10, to no avail.

    • Mr. J March 11, 2019 / 12:36 pm

      Me again.
      The HTML for both the current, and classic versions work fine. HTML duh.
      Just confirming that it is the HD version that has an exe file, not a html file, that I seem to have issues.

      Also the steps i have listed previously are from the reddit page that you have linked above.

    • Mr. J March 12, 2019 / 12:51 pm

      Me again (x2)

      Here is the error:
      “Could not execute
      C:\Users\___\___\DateArianeHD-win\lib\windows-i686\DateArianeHD.exe. Is it missing?”

      I cannot find this lib folder, even when opening the corrupt zip through 7zip and WinWar’s archive explorer.

      • arianeb March 12, 2019 / 4:23 pm

        Either it didn’t download properly, or the extractor is doing something weird. The executable should be located in {extracted location}\DateArianeHD-win\DateArianeHD.exe

    • Mr. J March 15, 2019 / 8:56 am

      Me again x3

      The exe is in the “DateArianeHD-win” folder. But the exe is looking for a main exe file in the “lib” folder which does not exist.

      Other titles made have both the “game” folder, and the “lib” folder.

      It seems as though the exe found only in “DateArianeHD-win” acts as a shortcut finding the master file which should be located in the “lib (ect.)” folder.
      At least, this is how it seems to be behaving.

      • arianeb March 15, 2019 / 9:11 am

        Erase it, redownload it from and re extract it to a folder of your choice, and run exe from that folder. If that fails then either the extractor is out of date, or there is a missing Direct x driver or something.

      • Mr. J March 15, 2019 / 5:36 pm

        Me again x4

        Well… this time it works, even without the use of a dedicated extractor. Windows 10 could read it perfectly fine natively.

        Thank you!

    Hi. I previously downloaded both SITA and the previous version of Date Ariane, without any trouble. But now, like so many others, I just simply cannot open the folder. I’ve tried repairing it with Winrar and unzipping it, but nothing helps. And I can see that I’m far from the only one having these issues. I am a huge fan of your games and the work you put in them, but clearly, something is wroing here.

    • arianeb March 19, 2019 / 7:43 am

      Not sure what is happening. I usually download then extract to a folder, then delete the download and run from the extracted folder.

      • Faza Faza March 19, 2019 / 1:59 pm

        I’ve tried this, but it still doesn’t work. It says:
        “Could not execute C:\DateArianeHD-win\lib\windows-i686\DateArianeHD.exe. Is it missing?”
        when I try to enter it.

  72. Oz March 31, 2019 / 6:52 pm

    The Windows download stops after about 100 mb. Tried dozens of time now. Any fixes?

    • arianeb March 31, 2019 / 7:52 pm

      I did a test download, I got an odd cache error at the beginning, but it downloaded anyways. Maybe try downloading from a different browser if you have one?

  73. Faza Faza April 3, 2019 / 2:05 pm

    Hi again.
    Not to keep complaining, because as I said, I am a huge fan of your work. But it seems downright impossible to open the file, as I keep getting the message “Could not execute C:\DateArianeHD-win\lib\windows-i686\DateArianeHD.exe. Is it missing?”, despite doing exactly as you’ve told. This is particularly frustrating, seing as I previously downloaded and played the previous version of this game, along with SITA, without any problems. Whether it is me who aren’t capaple of doing this or if it’s a flaw in the program (which is highly likely, given the numerous other people who are unable to do this), it doesn’t seem logical that you should go through all of this trouble to be able to play it.
    Will you please look into these issues?

    • arianeb April 3, 2019 / 6:37 pm

      My research says that this is always caused by overly aggressive anti-virus software like Norton Security.
      I found this solution from another forum:

      “Okay so it took my like an hour but I finally figured it out. I have Norton Security and every time I tried to open the game it would delete the file, saying it was dangerous. In order to open it and run the application, make sure that whatever virus protection you have restores the file to your computer, or just download it again. For Norton (not sure about any other anti-virus program) before you try to open it, right click and choose the the option under your virus protection to see the file details on the application. In the bottom right corner there should be a button that says something along the lines of “trust this user”. Click on that and then it will say “user is trusted” once you have Norton trust the user you should be able to run the application.”

      Another came from from a Sandboxie forum (another security software):
      “I work around the issue by copying the contents of the windows-i686 folder to a folder in PATH such as C:\tools\whatever. This allows the DLL files to be found, and all of my Renpy games to start even though the contents of that folder differ slightly between games.

      I am on Windows 10 and tried the stable as well as the 5.25.6 (64-bit) beta. I hope this issue helps other users, and maybe the Sandboxie developers can look into why DLL files won’t load from a relative path.”

      • raphael123 June 22, 2019 / 11:29 pm

        Unfortunately your game is broke, and you didn’t fix the issues, when are you going to release a new update, please?

  74. EV April 6, 2019 / 6:11 pm

    The download is not working

  75. foobar May 7, 2019 / 11:26 am

    Cannot extract the zip file on mac. Tried different zip apps, nothing helps. Could you please remake zip file and reupload it?

  76. calion June 27, 2019 / 4:22 pm

    Ditto on the Mac problem. Four different zip applications failed to extract it properly.

  80. Iconiczzz July 19, 2019 / 8:09 am

    Can you make you’re games download able on iOS?

    • arianeb July 19, 2019 / 8:17 am

      Unfortunately no. Apple prevents it unless you jailbreak your phone.

  81. Nathan July 21, 2019 / 11:05 pm

    I have tried several times, this is a complicated woman

  82. Michael August 14, 2019 / 4:17 pm

    just downloaded for the mac, it tells me “can’t be opened because it is from an unidentified developer. Your security preferences allow installation of only apps from the Mac App Store and identified developers.”

    • arianeb August 15, 2019 / 8:37 am

      You probably need to change your security preferences then. Android users have to do this to get the games to work, too, and Windows now puts a big warning sign when you launch any non-windows store program for the first time, and the “Run Anyways” button requires a couple of clicks to get to.
