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 9 = Watanabe Junko
ID 10 = Mitsuya Masako
ID 11 = Monotami Ruri
ID 12 = Nemoto Mayu
ID 13 = Terakado Shoko
ID 14 = Shirazu Izumi
ID 15 = Watanabe Aoi, Lambaria Yuu
ID 16 = Ran Fujioka
ID 17 = Torako Koizumi
ID 18 = Yumemi Tanno
ID 19 = Umehara Joruri
ID 21 = 21 Ways
ID 22 = Kirinashi Kyouki
ID 23 = Reserved for Nekochi
ID 24 = Reserved for Nekochi
ID 25 = Kuwabara Emiko
ID 26 = Reserved for triad2
ID 27 = Katanashi Seira
...
ID 30 = Vacant
ID 31 = Maeda Eriko
ID 32 = ? Genji
ID 33 = Vacant
...
ID 39 = Vacant
ID 40 = Konohana Midori
ID 41 = Natsume Rika
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
ALT + F5 -- Adds 1000 to yen
ALT + F6 -- Active speaker's affection decreases by 100
ALT + F7 -- Active speaker's affection increases by 100
ALT + F8 -- Advances the calendar by 1 day
ALT + F9 -- Advances the calendar by 7 days

If the player fails during her first event, she's gone. The player never sees her. Unless he or she hits "New Game", anyway. Perhaps I did that to incite players? I dunno. I suppose I could, in theory, change it so that her graphic appears during her first event in the Library.

I have to point out that nobody seemed to care, or notice, until now. It might be a moot point.
Okay, you don't care about that. Ehh... well... I've been kinda reading what I wrote and... I sounded like a major a*hole lately. Sorry T-T!

*Edit: Hey, does anybody remember Bacon, the test-character for the profile application? Well, it took another game's image, but that image used the same site that dude797 used and I'll be damned if I search this gamepage for the information! I think you can use this link for taiche mayhem!

I'll probably post this in the comments on the official site as well. Or, perhaps, as a external resource link? I'm mostly sure I have the access for a trick like that. I wish to know what flowerthief's take on it is.

O.o

Sorry. I mean it, sorry, really sorry.
Sounds good, Marrend. I've added it to the links section on the website. There's a couple more links like that that I added the other day.

That Pink Elephant link on the official site had some interesting stuff. I got as far as this page, but I kept getting a 404 when I try to get something.

Wait, now it's working? I know I visited with Google Translate before hand. It it possible that function messed something up? Weird.

You may now ignore this post!

*Edit: Unless, of course, you want more Masako for your money!

It's Masako fanart! =D

I am allowed to pamper my own creation. It occurs to me that, if I wanted something more accurate in character, her jacket would be buttoned up rather than the way it is in that shot. Oh well. Fooling around with an alternate PSD, I suppose!


*Edit: May as well toss in some fan-art of my other favorite character using Pink Elephant's PSD.
Been testing all afternoon. Hates bugs more than ever. Both kinds.
Dozen, are you aware of the cheats in the game? It occurred to me that you might not be, and since you're a serious user testing content you might find it useful to know them. PM myself or Marrend and we'll spill the info. That offer goes out to anyone.

I'm guessing spazhero, dude797, Nekochi, and Animetor might also know them as well. Maybe not so much Animetor? Whatever the case, they don't seem to be online as oft as flowerthief or myself. So yes, I may be contacted for the purposes of getting the cheat codes for this game, should the case be that they are required for character-testing purposes. Or a NEED TO CHEETZ.
I guess it can't hurt by this time.

The first release is slowly drifting closer. At this pace I estimate it's due in a month at tops. I'm suprised I was able to maintain the basic idea without significant changes. I really must be serious about this, huh?

I may find myself regretting this, but I've decided to be open for requests for tachie. Note that I'm only willing to do tachie made with material_m, or the Pink Elephant PSDs. Of course, I reserve the right to deny any requests based on how busy I am, lack of information, or other valid reasoning.

You may leave a request as a post (or as a PM) here, or on Heartache's official page as a comment.
Gah, I still can't find a proper theme for Kyouki! There is just no song on the planet that says 'crazy' without the 'axe' part. Not one!T.T Can you guys help me out? Maybe you can think of a track from an older game?

This is just me talking, but Robotrek's Research and Development is something I've always associated with zany antics. Also, Terranigma's Yomi Theme. Though Cobra Mission's "Central Cobra" (Sorry, couldn't find a YouTube vid! It's the song Momotami Ruri uses, though.), is up there as well.
Yoshio's theme from Tokimeki Memorial comes to mind! Also Miyuki's theme from Tokimeki Memorial 2. The downside would be that some datesim players would recognize those.
How about music like Katamari Damacy music? Who doesn't love this theme?

I couldn't find a video for it either, but maybe the song that plays in Monstania during the Maberia Cafe sequence? Which just shows how much I know of the game's music.

Is somebody withholding information? Well, maybe not, since the file was 1.7MB in size. Anyway, I randomly went to the official site, and saw a new character there. Lambaria Yuu, made by KimotoDragoon. Let's check her out!

*Edit: Yuu was added April 26th!? Man, I was not paying any attention at all!
Cool, I hadn't noticed either!

Welp! The file doesn't extract to the correct directories, and I noticed errors with the tachie. I'm not talking about the hair color, though that certainly looked out-of-place! Anyway, my first play saw me being kicked out of her story by failing a MIND check. Not that I had a clue that I needed MIND for this character, and I had to look at her story file to confirm my suspicions that I was kicked out of her story. First plays are first plays, though.

It's slowly occurring to me that this commentary would be best served if the creator actually read it. I get this odd feeling that the creator doesn't come here. So... copy-paste to the official site it is!
