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

There was a bit of public back-and-forth with what the poll was going to be.

author=offical site comments
author=Marrend
This is just me thinking (Which is always a dangerous thing), but shall the next poll involve who is the the favorite custom character? Of, course, the option of "I'm making him/her!" would be a viable option.

Or, maybe, this could just be a generally a bad idea. That's been known to happen.


author=flowerthief
Hmm, I wouldn't want authors to feel bad if their custom characters didn't get many votes. I would actually be more likely to do a poll for "Which Marrend character is your favorite?" :D But then, henceforth, every author who makes half a dozen chars will want their own poll. Still, I just might do it.


author=Marrend
I get the feeling that a poll for Marrend-only characters would not generate any actual votes. I could be surprised, though!

Anyway, don't we want authors to generate content? HYPER exists so that authors don't need to make those epic stories if they don't have the time/inclination to make them! Besides, writing for seven characters is quite an accomplishment, regardless of how you look at it!



The poll, as I am now looking at it, has 29 respondents thus far. Which is still lower than the number of respondents to "If you have tried to create custom content, what has been your biggest obstacle to completing it?" It does seem to be slowly going up, though.

Anyway, I'm not sure I like the idea of doing a poll for favorite NPCs. Though, I'm not going to lie: Chocolate Lady is among my favorite NPCs because she outright breaks the fourth wall. The Drug Dealer is somebody I generally don't mess with. I've never gotten the robo-janitor, so I'm not sure if there's an NPC that gives that to you for a reasonably exorbitant price, of course.
Three threads have been added to the top.

Finished content -- For discussion of content that is complete, or as complete as it's ever gonna be. If you want to post a review of existing content you can do so there.

Content creation (artistic) -- For discussion of the artistic aspects of making content. If you want to get everyone's take on what murder weapon your yandere should prefer, you can ask there.

Content creation (technical) -- For discussion of the technical aspects of making content. If you want to know how to prevent a character from being datable until specific conditions are met, or how to get more than three characters to appear on screen, you can ask there.

Please use the above three threads from now on.

Of the new threads, I'm finding that "Finished content" is the only one I can put a comment on. Also, what about this thread? There's no link on the front page to this thread anymore (Somebody unchecked the "primary" tab, obviously.), so I'm not sure how one would be able to access it. Unless one knew of it's existence before-hand, or was/is getting notices from it? I know the point was to consolidate comments into sections, but essentially getting rid of all the conversation that's been had so far? At least allow this thread to exist as the "Custom Content Archive", or something!

Or, I could be worrying to much. That's always a possibility.
Whoops, forgot to allow comments :D Okay, fixed so now you can comment on all of them.

And I already did what you suggest. The link to this thread is at the top of the Finished Content thread.

Didn't see the link, if it was there to begin with. My fault!

A little help?
I'm trying to make a custom character (Ajika) and I've followed the entire help guide- but nothing works! It keeps on saying that the ID can't be found.

Hypercam/video link of error- http://screencast.com/t/5TPNTp6bS

What's strange is that only making stories gets errors. I can (generically) encounter Ajika fine. Should I try to make a scene that isn't dependent on two characters and have only Ajika appear?

What am I doing wrong?

Oh, btw your site is down.

Why hello, demanding barbarian who has never heard of greeting! Lucky you caught me in a terrible, terrible mood with your incredible sense of entitlement, normally I would never let myself talk people down like this!
1. This is an archived thread. What are you doing here? Use the technical content creation thread for technical problems! Shoo!>:(
2. The error occurs because you didn't include a binary path to the profile in the story file, so while the game can load the generic events from the profile, when you want to include her(or anyone else, for that matter) in a story it has no idea where to look. Just paste the used profiles' name onto the first line. I also recommend avoidance of spaces in file names.
3. We are not sending you private messages or e-mails to report on your bugs. We provide community support, not our personal information or consensual slave labor. Any error you may encounter can be discussed here both for convenience and the sake of the quality of our service.

Laziness, in general. Like how you waltzed in without checking where to post, and expected us to do everything when we don't even know you. You realize that just by asking, you announced you couldn't be bothered to open a functional story file to check? So you could, you know, see the first flippin' line? That takes one and a half seconds, bud. Good first impression, this is not. And don't even get me started on that video. Next time, just post the text, okay? -.-

We know. I filed a report on that a week ago. Flowerthief is in no position to take care of it these days however, and the rest of us have no or limited access and control over the site.

Being the only other person, outside of flowerthief himself, who has any kind of administrative access to the main site, this is a rather sad story to admit to. Suffice it to say, it's rather aggravating, but I literally have no clue when things will be up and running again.

Mental note: It might behoove me to to change the the "dead" threads that the main site currently uses to "active" ones. However...!
Please, let's be nice, Dozen ^^; He probably just followed an old link from somewhere. And his mistake is a pretty common one.

The website is up when I checked now. Perhaps holiday traffic drove it down at the end of the month?
I'm currently working on a character named Nanami (my first character!) She looks like this:

Nanami is kind of a hipster.

If anyone has story writing tips, I would really appreciate it as I am new here.

The way the hair transitions seems a bit unnatural to me? I dunno. Could be on purpose. The pink is definitely a bit bright! The hell is a "hipster?

As for story-advise, the first order of business is to decide what kind of story you want to tell! Though, sometimes, the characters writes the story by themselves. For example, Momotami Ruri (of Uchioniko fame) doesn't really have a a "story to tell". She's more like, "Here's this character that is super-energetic, and being super-friendly is how she reacts to practically everybody ever." That's not to say that you need a character that is super-energetic and super-friendly. However, relaying key personality traits, and letting the story come naturally from that, would probably come off as a more genuine character.

Note: You posted in an archived thread. We would appreciate that, in the furture, you posted questions pertaining to storytelling in a more current thread. Questions pertaining to writing code would go to a different thread.
