Haha, we understand that it's one of the most requested feature :)

Unfortunately, implementing that on a 2D-based generator like this is quite problematic. The solution that we'll be using in the future is providing a set of pre-defined sizes, such as small, medium, large and so on.

A bit clunkier than a slider, perhaps, but it'll be a start until we can implement something better.

Thanks for your support!

No, you own it permanently. All future content and feature updates are free. Thank you very much for your support!

Thanks for your support! We have sent the funds gathered during the sale period around two weeks ago. We'll post some details alongside the app development progress in the next devlog which should be posted in a couple days or so.

Done!

Hey, nice thread here. Seeing what other people has made with the app will really help us evaluate and improve the output quality. Thanks!

Thanks for your suggestion! Additional male poses is already planned from the start, but we are still a little bit unsure about props. But if it's implemented in the future, then it will most likely done via specific poses, which means not all poses available will be compatible with props.

Thank you very much, glad you like it! Hopefully we'll be able to put more time to this project, and develop it as fast as possible.

Hello, can you elaborate further about: a) What OS are you running? b) What method did you use to run the demo (ZIP download or install via itch.io app?)

Yes, you can use it for commercial purposes. You also don't have any obligation to put any credits to the app (we'll be very thankful if you do, though :)

The bug regarding 'new character' should be fixed by now, but the various 'errors' that you see regarding the image is due to our ongoing redraws. Some clothing items also has new code names which resulted in the alert box shown in your screenshots.

Once the redraws are finished we will be adding a compatibility layer to automatically adjust older files to the new version without losing any clothing items, but that's still for the next time.

Thank you very much for your detailed info, and sorry for your inconvenience!

The bug should be fixed by now, thanks for your info! The latest version of itch app needs to be installed manually if I'm not mistaken. It has nothing to do with this bug, however it also has a quite nice new feature which lets you install both Mannequin's stable and nightly build on one machine (and auto-update them both).

Again, thank you very much!

Sorry for your inconvenience!

We'll take a look into it right away.

Based on your previous post, I'm assuming you are running in Windows 10? Are you using the latest version of itch app?

Yes, the feature is not finished yet, and the button that are available in the nightly builds is just a placeholder for now.

Hello there! Is this feature you mentioned (automatic key revoking) still a thing? If yes, is there any rough estimation for its implementation?

No rush though, just curious :)

Well, that is the limitation of the demo version :)

That's certainly a mix-up from our part. Thanks for the info! Will make sure that it's fixed on the next update.

Did you experience this since the beginning, or just lately? Did reinstallation helps?

Hello. Looks like you're using the nightly builds? If so, this output looks like something that is caused by an outdated version. There are significant redraw that are still ongoing in the nightly builds even until now, but if you're using the latest update it should look far better than the one pictured above.

Initial fixes for this behavior would be blocking the drag and drop entirely, I think. Then adding background image feature by file browser, and proper drag and drop support after that.

Not yet; we are still in discussion with itch.io dev about the Patreon connectivity mechanism. The actual Patreon page is already live though, but we marked it as NSFW so it's not showing up on search results :)

We'll make sure to let people know when it's ready!

We'll keep testing on this and will patch the app accordingly. Thanks for your information!

Hello, thanks for the suggestions! We have been thinking of making the newly created face preset (will be called 'expression' in newer versions) identical to the one which is active when the 'Add New...' menu is selected. For your second suggestion, I think we'll try adding options for cropping the result canvas by X percent or pixels from top, bottom, left, and right.

Sorry for your inconvenience! The fact that it keeps freezing even after moving to another sidebar is something new to us. If it's not a hassle, would you mind telling us: 

  • What build are you using (stable or nightly)? 
  • What is your operating system?
  • Does this problem happened randomly or it is always happened? We tested this on the stable build by creating a new character and immediately made a new clothing preset, then renamed the new preset with characters mentioned in your previous post. Using this method, we can confirm that our previously mentioned workaround works; is there any different step that we're missing?

Again, sorry for your inconvenience, and thank you very much for your information.

Hello, thanks for the info! We'll patch this up in the next release, but as a workaround for now you can move into another menu and then back (i.e. move to face and then back to clothing again) and the sidebar will be working again as usual.

Confirmed. We'll check it out and see for the solution to that problem.

Well, that's quite hard to answer :) 

We used to have a public Trello board, but as time goes on, it has proven to be difficult for us to keep it updated. As this is not a full-time work (yet), juggling between day job and running this project leaves us little time to do everything. We decided to focus our efforts in actual development and support whenever time is a challenge, relegating other communication (such as devlogs and public roadmaps) into a lower priority.

That being said, I do understand that this is quite necessary, so we might try to find some simpler alternatives, maybe just a publicly visible checklist? We'll make sure to let everybody know when the solution to this is available.

Thanks!

Ah yeah, that's definitely a bug. We have plans for adding support for custom backgrounds, but it's not implemented yet. How would you like it to work? Should the image file be embedded in the character file (raising the file size) or just kept as a link (chances are the image link will be broken when you move the file into a different computer)?

Thank you for your information regarding this bug!

This:

Nice play with the colors! Although seeing your output here made us realize there's some serious artifact problem that needs to be fixed (those white lines on the knees). We'll definitely work on that.

Roger that! Thanks for your support :)

Nevermind that, it's working properly now :)

This morning I've pushed some updates to my app, but it's not showing up until now (night, more than 12 hours and counting). When I tried to push the update again via butler, this is what I got:


Any info regarding this? Is it just me or is everybody affected?

Yes, we also planned for more body types.

They will be a thing, eventually :)

There are others who have requested that, and honestly we're interested too. But adding things ultimately takes time, and we currently can't give you an accurate approximation about when it will be available. If you're interested, just install the demo version using the itch.io desktop app so it can be updated automatically, or follow our itch.io account as we're always make a new devlog when an update to the stable and demo builds are released.

Thanks for your interest!

Noted. I think we can add it as a clothing piece, maybe in the accessory section.

Thanks for your suggestion!

Hooded jackets with the hood down will be quite easy, but we'll have to do some trial and error first with the hood up/worn. 

Thank you very much for your interest!

Hello! I'm sorry for asking this, but have you tried the 'Advanced' coloring mode for the skin? If so, is using that option still produces unsatisfactory results? Or maybe you're looking for better results while only using 'Automatic' coloring mode?

Thanks for your suggestions and continued interest!

Well, as stated in the description, it's a 2D character generator, so there's no way to 'turn' it like what you might find in 3D apps; but we have plans for adding poses in the 30-45 degree angle (assuming zero degree is straight from the front) since those kind of poses are often used in many existing visual novels.

Both are possible, but we're still considering the best way to implement those without being too complicated. This also applies to scars, moles, etc.

Thanks for your feedback! We'll keep this in mind.

Okay... That was clearly unintentional. Pretty embarrassing, that was. We'll look into it right away. Thank you very much for your information!
