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

Thanks for trying to help, but none of your ideas gonna cut it. On the bright side:
1. @flowerthief: Miki is a tsundere as well! That makes two! <party!>
2. While I have no clue about synthetisators, I remembered that I was tought how to write and read music(Kind of redundant considering how much I do both dayly) so I looked around if there are any programs using 'plain' old music notes instead of DJ-board mimicry.
Turns out there are some.
I recomposed the main Taros theme's Deep brass solo from TA: Kingdoms(Try to get your hands on that one if you're into RTS, Cavedog knew how to make games) in a-minor, converted it into MP3... guys, it was beautiful. For a freeware istrumental copycat software, anyway. The system can't handle slurs but it's still more than I'd ever hoped for. I'm actually getting confident about this.

You know, that's true. The built-in game has both a hard tsundere and a soft tsundere doubling as the childhood friend. In fact, I had thought about adding more tsundere to the game, but I guess there's enough? :P Some of the user-made characters could also be considered tsundere.

This talk of what a "tsundere" is would point to 21 Ways. Possibly Mayu as well. I dunno. I don't think I have that good a handle on the meaning of "tsundere" yet.
Isn't tsundere like you know... that red-haired girl in the game (the younger one)? A person who acts rude to you first but deep inside he/she's soft or something?

I think you're talking about Riho? I don't have much experience with that character, so I can't really say.

*nerd mode on*
The girl you are referring to is Rio, and yes, she is a strong example of the classic tsundere. A tsundere(the 'tsun' part meaning 'harsh' and the 'dere' meaning 'sweet') is either
1. a 'classical' tsundere, who's behavior goes trough an extreme emotional swap(either from positive to negative or vice versa) regarding someone/something, in which case the change is gradual but striking, or
2. a 'modern' tsundere, who hides his or her actual feelings(again, either positive or negative) behind giving off the expression of the exact opposite, in which case the character switches between the two moods whenever, even multiple times per minute. And there is also
3. the coodere(or kuudere), a variant of both, who's default mood is... well... basically 'not giving a single f*k', acts cold or simply neutral towards everything, and then switches to one of the extremes, which is very spectacular since most people usually have a hard believing they have feelings at all.

Quite right! Mayu is a classical tsundere with stun as her default mood, and 21 is a modern one with dere as the core setting.

*Nerd mode off*
Gah, my head hurts... SO! Let's count! :D

1. Riho
2. Miki
3. Akari
4. Mayu
5. 21

Five tsunderes! We rule! XD

Dozen's, Kyouki would be on that list. That's what my intuition is telling me, but my intuition is not on Mitsuya levels.
Ummm... Nope. You'll see it's otherwise when I release the first batch.
AND about that! I made you guys a chart featuring my progress so far and will update it weekly for your convenience!



The events are named for testing's sake, tho I tried to nick them thematically.(Try to guess what they mean! I dare you!) And yes, these are just the starters. No kidding. Yes, I'm a lunatic.

Legend:
? = Not yet implemented events.
Amber boxes = Implemented events.
Bad move = If you get one of these these events, you've done something wrong; not simply in the social sense, but the moral one. Choose carefully in these, faliure may forbid you from Kyouki events althogether!
Neutral move = Does not affect the story much. Will either lead to the usual dating sequence or the friend route(Don't ask! I won't tell you yet!).
Good move = This implies you have done something awesome! If you play your cards right in these events, the player gets lots of dates' worth of affection so you will have more time for things of importance!(What are those? Can't say...) You can only enter these by passing checks, so keep your stats in...uh... check!>.>
Friend route: This is something new, and go away I'm not telling you!X(
Love route: In the love route, Kyouki is your official gf; This implies a lot of changes in dialogue. You WILL eventually enter this if you pursue her, and afterwards dating others becomes complicated. Not that it's impossible, but do NOT try it on first runs! It won't end well for you.


What the route includes currently:
Kyouki(duh) and her general craziness
The first addon featuring built-in character Takuya
Unusual and frequent events
An attempt at establishing a new Guiness record entry
The usual antics and monologues of The Player
Author's comments in the files, for players and especially you guys!

Planned:
A way to enter Akari's route without 'being a sucker/asshole' among the requirements
The friend route(Not telling you)
Punching Hiro in the face(What? What?! Come on, we all hate that guy! And it will happen in an appropriately dramatic moment!)
A nice, lighthearted story... On the friend route. The love route on the other hand...


Yup. Cerebus syndrome applied. Want your happy ending? Earn it. Good luck.

...

Like the panic pic?:D I worked a big lot on those eyes!
^
agree, making those eyes are quite a trouble

Dozen, that flowchart, on top of your own comments about how the character works, makes the character seem like a huge pain to get. However, we shall see how difficult things are when the first release comes! Whenever that will be!


*Edit: This somehow reminds me that I want to do another run of Lambaria Yuu. I dunno. My life got very hectic all the sudden. I can probably manage to squeeze a tachie set, though!
Now let's see a flowchart with *all* the characters that have been made so far :P
Getting her in the usual sense is actually easier than with any character published so far. It's not hard to tell the difference between a Bad Move and the other two kinds; At least for you, since you know there are such things. You will also get her in every ending of the love route. The hard part is to get an ending without some bitter aftertaste to it. It's just too frickin' easy to get a good ending with everyone else, and there isn't a single bad one to scare you away from just clicking around. I want to give players a challenge. I grew up on games like Fate/Stay Night and goshdarn School Days! School Days. Yes, the game where bad choices end up with the protagonist's head cut off, intestines outside or soul broken. While you're looking. I'm not putting you through anything remotely close, so don't complain, our target audience have seen worse. This game, after all, is on a much nicer boat, don't you think? BECAUSE YES I THINK IT'S A NICE BOAT. I'm not sinking it for you, I promise.

And if you want flowcharts!... Okay if you really want them I'm up to it>.>
Just say the word:)

The flowchart for Ruri would be pretty dumb:

Meet the quad-tech! Get Ruri to LOVESICK by Day 101, or Day 151 in 151 Mode! YEEEESSS!
by the way guys, anyone know what's the last name of Takumi?

Takumi? Not sure who you're talking about LordNight. Unless you're talking about Takuya, an NPC in this game? In that case, don't think he was given a family name!
^-
yes, that

*edit

eh? sh*t, its really Takuya, Epic Fail, Good thing notepad+ have this replace all system

Regular ol' NotePad doesn't have a search function? I'm seeing a "Find" and "Replace" on mine.

Wait, why am I trying to direct someone away from using hima's and Turtle's Notepad++ goodness? Way to fail, Sataro!
hmm, weird, the help says I can use the CONTINUE code at the end of a PHONE story, but the game says not... error guys?
Another chart for you! This time it features the named characters' (presumed) class affiliation(not pursuable chars are in italics). I made this one for no apparrent reason, other than being bored.

@LordNight: We have a helpdesk?O.o I mean, aside from this forum?

@dozen

yes, he comes along with the whole hearthache file, his full name is help.html and he's pretty cool
