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

Downloads are available on my development blog,
download links are in the bottom of my post,and also win32 & win64 versions are available.
Any advices are welcome, and you can report bugs HERE.
Your ideas could help us to make SAO Utils better XD
Have Fun!

I have some questions. Can someone tell me how to connect it to my Gmail account? And what exactly will Yui do when she's available? Is there a way to make the Bangumi plug-in English?

I cant connect my hotmail account to sao utils. Can someone help me?
LJA86 Featured By Owner Edited 3 days ago  New member
Hi, I've install this program earlier and I can't move the HP-Bar. Anyone know how to do?


PS: Sorry for my english but I don't speak very well (I'm french and there is no report about SAO utils in french)

Edit: Finally, I find the way to do this, you can't move the "HP-Bar" if you had chek the "Transparent" box

Really cool program, and you've been doing a great job replying and answering people's questions.

I just installed it, and I'm having trouble connecting the inbox to my Gmail account. 
I'm able to connect to my gmail account through Thunderbird (a different client) but the same information doesn't seem to work for SAO Utils, it simply says "Cannot connect to server:"

The information is as follows:

Email Address:
POP3 Server:    Port:995    [V] SSL
SMTP Server:   Port:465    [V] SSL
Username: example    Password: mypassword

As I said, it works for Thunderbird so it should be working. Any idea what's wrong? Maybe a setting somewhere I forgot to change?
Thanks :)

GPBeta Featured By Owner Jul 15, 2014
just unzip, override original files and restart SAO Utils.(don't use a full package for update, that will lose all your settings!)
