The SAO Utils is a Sword Art Online Look'n'Feel application launcher with variety of powerful utilities.
Its pluggable architecture allows you, the developer, to add any kind of plug-ins to the core program.

1.The 3D Launcher and Startup Animation.
2.Quick Image Preview.
3.Drag&Drop Menu Editing.
4.GGO Theme.

Your ideas could help us to make SAO Utils better XD
Have Fun!

How do I change menu curvature?
EretaHEART Featured By Owner Nov 13, 2015  Student Digital Artist
Ah, I'll never get over how great this project is!

Anyways, Joshua, I got a question.

The NERvSDK Wiki lists the versions with which it is compatible, but I find it rather strange that Windows 7 is not listed even though basically all versions of Windows from 2000 onwards are listed, except for 7 ... Is it really not compatible because of some quirk? Or is it just a typo?

Thanks as always!

First of all, best application ever.
Second, I have a question. I want to know if the mailbox works with hotmail and if it does how you set it up.

This is brilliant but how do I get the boxes for the music player to scroll when the text won't fit?
GPBeta Featured By Owner Oct 10, 2015
please update the 'Music Player Support' plug-in, it supports text scrolling now:…
Guilmon1337 Featured By Owner Edited Sep 12, 2015
This is so useful. Just gotta...Find out how to set up extra stuff to the tabs... And, would it be possible to make the pull-down menu be able to show up on BOTH monitors instead of only one? I use a dual monitor setup. (Not both at once, but like, not restricted to just the main one)
CapoFantasma97 Featured By Owner Edited Sep 4, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I forgot to send the it_IT translation files. Sent via email right now.
Valquiria-L Featured By Owner Sep 1, 2015
Does it work with Win10?
CapoFantasma97 Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Of course
Mikosuka Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2015
So, how do i open an image in the launcher without having to leave it?
GPBeta Featured By Owner Sep 1, 2015
Firstly, enable the 'Image Widget' plug-in.
Secondly, DO NOT check the 'Disable Action Filters' option.
Mikosuka Featured By Owner Sep 1, 2015
Understood. But won't that close the launcher when i try to drag something?
GPBeta Featured By Owner Sep 4, 2015
It will not, you can find the toggling topmost option if when you click the top left icon, then you can drag and drop with other application.
Mikosuka Featured By Owner Sep 4, 2015
I think i've got it this time, thank you very much!

I am ready to create a brand new, revised and improved Italian translation :D At the moment the download of the lang pack gives a "Service is running in cache mode, request content could not be displayed" error
GPBeta Featured By Owner Aug 27, 2015
OK, the link was fixed now :)
Rakkonji Featured By Owner Aug 20, 2015
ITS FINALLY OUT!!! *via. this website!!! xD*…

Then choose the file that's correct for your computer... Mine is 64 bit so... I'm gonna click on "". Have fun~!!! ^_^

Rakkonji Featured By Owner Edited Aug 13, 2015
No, It's still going, and BTW: if you visit… You should see it almost in completion... AKA: 95% I'm waiting to get this program as well... :/

PS: it MIGHT be released tomorrow my time... but I'm not so sure yet... :\... Anyways, I'm in Las Vegas, *lol I'm so lucky! XD* Peace! :3

Red0Joker Featured By Owner Jul 30, 2015
Is this an abandoned project ? I don't see any progression anymore.Your site is always showing 80% .
Shadyninjacat Featured By Owner Jul 12, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Is there any support for Macs at all in the future? I'd love this on my personal computer.
Stefanusarya Featured By Owner Jun 26, 2015
Have you guys noticed about this?
bentenz5 Featured By Owner Jun 22, 2015
You lads hear? Alpha 3 is 80% complete (according to website)!! Link:…

I can not wait for Alpha 3! I already use Alpha 2 (hotfix 4) constantly! Theres an SDK now, which could allow us to make our own plugins!

Something to note: The native language appears to be either Chinese or Japanese, so please don't get mad over bad translations, this guy puts in tons of work into this and has even decided to make it in english for us.

Help him out, if your language isnt there, start translating! :)

Can't wait for Alpha 3/Beta 1 release! Keep up the good work lad!

Wait So How do you add A Music Plugin To The "Menu" Tab and other things like in the screenshot?
GPBeta Featured By Owner May 28, 2015
That's not a music plugins but a menu item associating with your favor music player or music files.

GPBeta Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2015
I think you should down the full package rather than a hotfix update.
jayzap96 Featured By Owner Mar 7, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist

LetsTalkChocolate Featured By Owner Edited Mar 6, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I can't get this to work with my gmail account, and I've checked out the video regarding the pop/smtp servers and everything. I'm at a loss.

well9087 Featured By Owner Mar 3, 2015
how to add the "boot animation"?
CowPlus Featured By Owner Edited Feb 25, 2015
The website isn't working on Google Chrome. All it says is "The Webpage is Unavailable". Anyone else having this problem?
GPBeta Featured By Owner Mar 1, 2015
it's strange...:o (Eek) which country are your from and what's the ISP?
EretaHEART Featured By Owner Mar 2, 2015  Student Digital Artist
Having this exact problem, from United States, have Optimum as ISP. No browser lets me view the site incognito/inprivate or not, and IE says that my ISP's DNS server may be down. Kinda hard to believe when everything else works. TT_TT

Btw, really pumped to download the new version of this, so would mind doing the community a favor by making a MediaFire account and just posting the packages there? I would really appreciate it. >w<
GPBeta Featured By Owner Mar 3, 2015
um... I think I know what the problem is.
Could you please have a ping or nslookup on
There might be something wrong with the DNS server or CDN...

BTW, the hotfix4 version is also shared over a Chinese net drive:
I think you could have a try too.
