There is now a website you can use to share your custom content with other users! But you're still welcome to use this page to share and discuss content.

Below is a list of finished custom (user-made) content. To add these characters, in most cases you can extract the downloaded file to the game's main directory and you're set. Depending on how the author has organized them, it may be necessary to move files to the appropriate directories. (Custom content has not been tested by me)
Note: After new content has been added, old saves won't be compatible.

If you have posted custom content in this thread, I will (eventually) add your link to the list above, along with a small screenshot if you have included one. Be sure to test your content in-game before posting.


Helpful things:

--> Medium build girl, the .psd that was used to create the built-in characters, is available with layer names in English.

--> Not feeling artistic? You can use any of these images for making custom characters.

--> Notepad++ with syntax highlighting for Heartache 101 can be a big help with story creation.

--> If you are writing story content that includes the appearance of existing characters (built-in or custom), the following list may be of reference:
ID 0 = The Player
ID 1 = Nakajima Miki
ID 2 = Ikeda Keika
ID 3 = Onishi Tsubasa
ID 4 = Kaneshiro Shihoko
ID 5 = Kaneshiro Riho
ID 6 = Sato Akari
ID 7 = Hiraoka Hinami
ID 8 = (Secret character)

ID 42 = Vacant
ID 43 = Vacant
ID 44 = Hasegawa Kanon
ID 45 = Vacant
...

(Note: You don't need to care about this list if your story events will not include existing characters, as ID numbers for characters in separate files don't have to be unique)

--> Finally, I've listed the game cheats here. You can use these during story events to test your content:
SHIFT + F5 -- Adds 10 to Looks
SHIFT + F6 -- Adds 10 to Athletics
SHIFT + F7 -- Adds 10 to Personality
SHIFT + F8 -- Adds 10 to Mind
SHIFT + F9 -- Adds 10 to Soul

Right. About what I was planning to do with the cameos. That's one thing. Remaking Uchioniko on a whim is another.

And you can just waltz away with music from those games? I'm not saying I'm above that sorta thing, from the legal point of view, but it's kinda mean. Especially so since I haven't seen any music mentioned in the credits.

Okay, you got me on having no proper credits listed for the music used for my characters. However, the main game does have a credit in the help file:

author = Help.html
Music by MusMus (Takeaki Watanabe)
Additional tracks by Giraffe Material


Now that you mention it, LordNight had a text file in Midori's music directory that was something akin to a "credits" file. I might end up doing something like that, though that would mean re-uploading everybody twice (Once for here, and again for the official site). Emiko is somewhere around 13 or 14 MB if memory serves me right, so I don't even know if it's possible to re-upload her to the official site anymore. Might look into FTP options for that. Or let flowerthief handle it.
Thanks, I think I can use this. (Now if only I could learn all Japanese kanjis overnight... I might have to use the Google Translator...<- Did I really write that?O.o)
I keep getting Failed captcha after trying about 5 times...
A geeky girl? Not a bad idea, considering the audience. I'll look into it immidiately:D
Okay, this is a serious case. You really need to put some effort into it, if you expect anyone to actually go for her. You said yourself you pulled this off in 8 hours, and it shows. Not a single story in the file is clear of grammar errors. Using 'your' instead of 'you're', the punctuation marks left out and the utter ignorance of the rules for apostrophes make it feel like you're reading a chatlog. This isn't a big problem, though; every video game has gone trough a proofing stage.

But THIS.

This is a big problem. The characters just say random stuff out of context. 'Sure. I forgot to save before I started talking to you.' What the hell does this have to do with anything? The fact that the rest of the dialog is based on it makes it even worse.
Moving on, the player's comments are a mess, and half the time it seems like Emi is the one commenting on herself in third person because you never set the active speaker for them. The game center event is just horrible. It's nice of you to tell the player which stats should he raise, but at least try and come up with a reasonable excuse for it. The fortune teller event in Masako's route is a perfect example.
But the worst of all is not what you wrote, but what you didn't. It's fine if the girl barely says a damn thing, your decision. Considering who she is, this might be intentional on your part. But the player character already has a personality you can't ignore. And even if that wasn't set, doesn't he think of anything? His internal monologues seems to be restricted to brief comments on what's happening at the moment like, 'she laughs'. There are so many times when the situation just cries out for a narrative, but the player remains silent.
The game center event "shines" in this particular regard too. Nothing indicates the time passed. No fading out, no conversation, no inner comments. It feels like they finished both games in milliseconds.

That rant said, there is also a lot to be praised. This event, for instance, is pure gold:

It's hilarious, flows well, and displays bits of both the player's and Emi's personality. If you can come up with something like this, this route of yours has the potential to be better than the built-in ones, if you take your time. You clearly have the storyteller in you, and Emi is is an interesting character. It'd be a waste of your talents not to go on, so don't let my rants scare or piss you off. Just don't share your works with others until they're decent; a lot of people have the tendency to look at only the bad aspects of a game and ignore the good things. I had to learn this in the hard way the first time I wrote an addon. Just saying 'I doubt she is any good but I'll keep trying!' cries out for a*holes to grab into and shun your efforts. If flowerthief was anything like that(he isn't btw) then all your work was for not. In any case, I doubt he'd bother to test/recommend your route if everyone else said it's crap(Even more so since he tested so much already he got fed up by it). Careful out there, not all of the internet is Fluffy Sunshine Land. Trolls everywhere!

So man up, don't let us down! ;) Especially since I wrote so much when it's not even my job...
Let's not beat up on each other too much :)
I'm happy to see any character being made and won't stop anyone from posting it. True, we might eventually need some way to give the more polished content better visibility than the rest, but presently I think "need more content!" is still a greater priority than "need well-written content!"

SilentPhoenix, if the captcha is giving you problems, Marrend can upload it to the site for you (it's definitely beneath the size limit!), but we'll give you time to proofread and stuff.



Hey, don't be so nice and easy going with the new guy who barely knows what's going o... oh yeah, alright, sorry, you have a point. My bad.
Lol.
Speaking of this, I guess I should go ahead and add LordNight's content to the page since he hasn't been around, although there were lots of punctuation issues with his content.

Don't worry about scaring me off with your wall of text.
I submitted her in her current state because I know myself that I suck at bringing any of my creations to life.
Your type of feedback was exactly what I wanted after posting this, so thanks.
In truth I started this project as a means to help improve my writing.
I hope to end up completely finishing Emi in such a way that I feel that she is exactly what I wanted her to be when starting this.
If its all right I don't think it should be up as a download link on the website or up in the collection for now.
Thanks again, Silent Phoenix
BTW I suck at english but I try my best.
wait flowerthief!


... too late
and when i thought i can write with my easy-going pace...
oh well
@SilentPhoenix, if you can speak English half as good as you write, then you're already more than decent. My classmates would not be able to cry out a coherent phrase if they lived in London and their houses were on fire.

And... thanks for appreciating my wall of text. Gotta love if people like your walls of text:D I will be following Emi's development, just as your progress in linguistics.

LordNight: Also gotta love if people prove me right:) Don't post content early, both of you, things happen! But like you said, it's not that bad in either case. Just don't do it too much, schadenfreude degrades my morals.
@dozen

yes i know, its my fault
its just i dont like how my little sister always disturb me
hmm, i also dont like how i blame my little sister for something like this

in any case, i would like to ask for patience since i dont like rushing my work~

i still have to write stories for the other three characters
LordNight, I can remove it for now then. By all means feel free to continue writing at your own pace.

MOR CHARACTERZ!? Actually, I think Dozen gave some pretty decent feedback. Not sure if I could even follow that first example of story, which might have been the point of posting it. Also, Emi has a two identities? One popular, one not-so-much? If so, that sounds like another character I know...
@flowerthief

thank you

that version was an embarrassment thats why
@Marrend
She does?
I quite literally started Emi about three minutes after I found out about Heartache 101.



I'm going try to do something unique but I won't be revealing what it is until after my little feature is added to her completely.
Probably going to be finished with Emi sometime late next week.
Just another announcement, Emi will be coming along with a new girl that I'm co-writing with a friend (who is about 200 times a better writer than I am)
MORE CONTENT COMING SOON :D

Well, I'd probably have to actually look at Emi, but if she's anything like what I think she is, she could be similar to a certain character from either that magical girl game or that character package.

I wont be able to release Emi this week due to life getting in the way.
At this rate I wont be able to release her for another week, sorry.

Is it possible to have custom backgrounds?

Is it possible to have custom backgrounds?

It is possible, but maybe not in the way you might think. You could look at the profile for Kuwabara Emiko and STORY 21 in her story file too see how I worked it.


*Edit: Or you could just use "OTHER" slots in a character's profile for the custom background. Which is essentially what Emiko did.
