This page is for discussion of the technical side of content creation. If you have a technical issue or question with regards to a character or story you are creating, talk about it here.
(The old Custom Content thread can be found here)


Helpful things:

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

--> Kudos to SparkleFox for finding us a male tachie generator, authored by "彩 雅介" (Aya Mayabaikai?)! This one is put together as a program, but has PSD files with layer-names in Japanese. No "fan-translation" available at this time.

--> You can use any of these images for making new custom characters.

--> Notepad++ with syntax highlighting for Heartache 101 can be a big help with story creation. To set it up, go to the View menu and set User Defined Language to HeartAche. Then close View, go to the Language menu and select HeartAche. (If you already have Notepad++, here's userDefineLang.xml by itself)

--> Mr. Help File has, regrettably, forgotten to mention certain locations! They are as follows:
Beach (sunset), Grounds (sunset), Roof (sunset), Bedroom (Morning), Downtown, Studio Room.
Note that these locations must be specified via a PLACE command. To the best of my (ie: Marrend's) knowledge, they cannot be obtained via the generic "School" or "City" code.

(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

A small thing, along with me getting waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay ahead of myself here:

- Can you change #124's name (Ishida Tomoe) to "Shimada Tomoe" on the ID list? She suddenly became Tsukasa's older sister a little while in development.

- Can I make multiple possible endings for one given character, or am I limited to one? I'm thinking of having a base ending via the plot along with one or possibly more depending on the supporting characters' affection values and/or whether or not other events are completed.

You can write as many possible erndings per character as you like. There's no inforced limit.
(For example there's a total of four different possible endings for Mayumi if you enable both "WingGirl" content packs.)

One thing to keep in mind is that the game would not allow the player to choose if there's more then one active ENDING story by the end of the game; he can choose the character but not the story. As far as I know the game would pick one at random in this case.

So, if you DO write multiple ENDINGs for one character you should take extra care to allow not more then one of them at a time.

why i mind THAT one game? Fire R...i think you know...
As a shameless form of self-advertising I'm planing on a short piece of content, ominously named "crossover".

I'd like to reserve IDs for the following characters for this:

Kojima Daishi
Hashimoto Chiyo

and of course Hina would be part of this, too (she already has an ID).

NOTE: of these only Chiyo will be pursuable ...

You got 'em, Garage. From the sound of it, I figure it would look something like...

ID 113 = Kojima Daishi {Garage, "Crossover", unpublished}
ID 114 = Hashimoto Chiyo {Garage, "Crossover", unpublished}
