Game Character Hub: PE 3.4

Hello everyone,

We are pleased to announce the release of GCH: PE 3.4! This release contains a bunch of important features, as well as some improvements and bug fixes.

The main new feature is a new tool delivered along with GCH, called gch-import-mv-dlc. As it is stated by its name, this program is able to scan your RPG Maker MV installation and create GCH generator parts out of it! To use this new tool simply launch GCH and go to "File > Import resources..." and click on "Import RPG Maker MV DLC(s)" button on the window that popped up. Beware though: Only RPG Maker MV Kids generator parts are currently supported by this tool. New generator parts will arrive in a future minor update.

Here is the complete changelog:
New features:
[+] GCH provides a new tool to easily import RPG Maker MV DLCs (the list of supported DLCs will grow over time).
[+] GCH provides a new user-friendly way to import custom resources. Go to "File > Import resources..." to check it out!
[+] GCH character generator now allows you to tune the frequency of each item color variation. As a result, characters with unusual skin and hair color are generated much more rarely.
[+] GCH can now open files whose format does not appear clearly in their filename (i.e. does not end with ".png" or ".gpf", etc...). The program makes a first read of the file to deduce the format and then reads the file normally.

Improvements:
[/] Improved character generator UI.
[/] Improved item library indexing speed.
[/] "View > Show Grid" now affects every document, not just the active spritesheet.
[/] gchlib dump command now accepts an "-o" option to redirect the command output to a file.
[/] gchlib exec command now accepts a "-continue-on-failure" option.
[/] gchlib now forbids to have two references pointing to the same file.

Bug fixes:
[-] Fixed the fact that the active sheet would change when adding an item from the library.
[-] Selected animation in animation player will no longer be reset when changing current spritesheet.
[-] GCH will no longer crash if the library indexer is still running when quitting.
[-] Fixed potential dangling references in gchlib.

Enjoy :)

About This Software

Game Character Hub: Portfolio Edition is the ultimate program for creating and editing 2D game assets. It provides a built-in generator for character and tileset creation. While the program was made to be compatible with RPG Maker XP, VX, VX Ace, and MV the elements found in the program should work with other 2D game engines as well. RPG Maker assets are for RPG Maker use only.

New and Improved

Game Character Hub: Portfolio edition picks up where it's predecessor left off and features multiple improvements, enhancements, and brand new features! Here's a quick overview:

Character Creation

Easily create characters by choosing generator parts provided in the program. Simply select a template, add items and you're done! You can also create your own custom templates and parts. Note that almost the same logic applies to tilesets, so it doesn't necessarily need to be characters!

Flexible Layers

You can easily customize parts according to your needs; such as changing the opacity, renaming, merging and deleting parts.

Animated Previews

The Preview window lets you see whats going on without having to stop what you're doing! You can pause the animation and change different settings such as the animation speed, background color and even zoom! You can also set custom animation previews with the Animation Management feature. Useful if you want to see if your Autotiles or Behaviour poses seamlessly transition to one another!

Powerful Palette Editor

With our palette editor, it's easier for you to create your own palettes and change values. What's more is that you can generate palette colors from all visible layers or specific ones. Great for finding the colors you need!

Complete Item Collection

Our huge collection of items makes creating your dream character easy! Mix and match pieces and build your own heroes!

Powerful Random Character Generator

Need to generate a bunch of NPCs quickly? No problem, use Game Character Hub: Portfolio Editions to create a huge variety of different characters combining our huge library of items.

Other Features Include:
