Hello! I purchased this before I made an account, so how can I get an update (although i think that this website mentioned something about being able to tell if I did, so this might not be a huge issue)?

Developer

I believe if you don't want to use the Itch app, you can just re-download the zip file.

If you're using the Itch app, then it should be available in your library. Install it, and the Itch app will check out and update Mannequin automatically whenever a new release is up.

Developer

Release 0.1.2 (July 14, 2016)

Quite a big delay due to Eid Al-Fitr holiday. Sorry for the long wait!

Components/Library Updates:

  • (New) Mouth - Thick Lips (in all shapes already available in Thin Lips variant)
  • (Updated) ALL four poses due to some adjustment in proportion. Thinner arms, longer legs.

Known Issues:

  • The updated proportion did make the collars on sailor uniforms a bit out of place. This will be fixed in 0.1.3
Developer

Release 0.1.3 (July 25, 2016)

I should really stop overestimating my crappy drawing skills. And by crappy, I mean slow. Really slow.

Developer

Release 0.1.4 (August 7, 2016)

New Features:

  • Certain accessory now can detect if they are meant to be combined with your current clothing configuration or not. You can still force-add the corresponding accessory though (resulting in strange things of course). The first example of this is Uniform Ribbon accessory.

Developer

Release 0.1.5 (August 15, 2016)

Fixes:

  • Fixed a bug where reflections on the eyeball changed color alongside iris.

New Features:

  • Demo builds are now available! Every features except exporting are available in the demo. If you're interested or are running the demo build right now, please consider using the itch.io app because demo builds will be updated in the same rate as the main build.
  • Fixed-width outline is now available. This is designed for high resolution exports where you might be disturbed by the thickness of variable-width outline.
  • Skin, hair and iris now has a new color-changing method/algorithm. Basically it adjust the contrast so hopefully whatever hair color/skin color you chose, your character still looks good.
  • Changelog for the current version will be displayed for every first time launch after updating. You can also access this information via "What's New?" button from the "About This App" menu.

Components/Library Updates:

  • (New) Several eyeglasses has been added.
  • (Updated) Iris, hair parts and several body parts have been redrawn in order to use the new color-changing method.

Other:

  • 32-bit Windows builds are now removed. It's originally released for a test run using Wine, but now that we have a native build for each platform, it's finally considered as not necessary.

Our next update (0.1.6) will still focuses on polishing and fixes. After the next update, we'll shift back to prioritizing library updates.

Developer

Release 0.1.5b (August 16, 2016)

This is a hotfix release to address several bugs considered as critical.

Fixes:

  • Fixed a bug that causes misalignments when using folded arms pose.
  • Fixed a bug where sometimes an existing accessory is overwritten when adding another accessory.
  • Adjusted some hair color changing parameters to remove some faint color tint that showed when using hair color with zero saturation (grayscale/from black to white)

Release 0.1.6 (October 25, 2016)

After multiple delays, release 0.1.6 is finally here. Sorry for the long wait!

New Features:

  • New coloring method for clothing now ensures every piece of clothing is colored consistently. Nearly every clothing has been redrawn in order to implement this feature!
  • New clothing composition method now allows us to treat every piece of clothing as separate object. Tops and outerwear are now separated because of this.
  • You can now open a specific file from editing screen by accessing File -> Open.
  • Tweaked proportions for the female character template.
  • Faster zoom operations.
  • Canvas size increased from 512 x 1024 to 640 x 1280 to accommodate bigger character templates in the future.

Component/Library Updates:

There are so many changes in this section because we've redrawn nearly all clothing items in order to be able to use the new coloring method. So instead of listing them one by one, we'll provide a short summary.

  • 14 poses in 0.1.6 vs 8 in 0.1.5 (6 new);
  • 31 tops + 6 outerwear (37 total) in 0.1.6 vs 20 in 0.1.5 (17 new);
  • 5 skirts/pants in 0.1.6 vs 2 in 0.1.5 (3 new);
  • 1 new footwear (Slip-On Shoes);
  • Sailor Uniform ribbon/tie is now separated as accessory; and
  • New blank face color.

Now you can also make more specific color adjustments; for example, in a shirt you can change the color of its collar and buttons.

Fixes:

  • Fixed a bug for very short hairstyle with three-parted bangs which makes it load hairstyle with side-parted bangs instead of the correct one.
