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.

[/] 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 :)

Hello everyone,

We just released a small update for the Portfolio Edition. This update aims to fix RPG Maker VX Ace items. We added some files that were missing: 40 outfits and 6 glasses items. We also moved the naked body part to a location that is more natural (inside the Body/(Fe)male folders). We want to thank you for your support and your feedback on this!

Also, a few words about the next major update: It will bring Workshop support. Unfortunately Valve does not allow to import all GCH's workshop files into the upcoming GCH:PE's workshop. GCH's workshop is getting bigger every day, and offers many top quality items thanks to you, and that's something we value ;) We don't want to lose this in GCH:PE so we are actively working on solutions to easily port the base GCH workshop files into GCH:PE's future workshop.

We hope you will enjoy :)

V3.1.0 Patch note

New features:
  • It is now possible to import custom resources via the user interface (File > Import custom resources) in addition to the command line tool.
    Updated the user guide with explanations on how to use this new interface.
  • Two new options are available for gchlib: -pck and -npck for gchlib list item. This can enumerate all the items that are (pck) or not (npck) in a pack.

  • Improved "Export as PNG" window. If the selected output file already exists, the spritesheet to export will be drawn over the existing image in the preview area.
  • Improved user guide with explanations on how to properly export RPG Maker MV Face/Damage spritesheets (In section "2.5 - Export character").
  • Added new frame mapping processes in the RPG Maker MV pack.

Bug fixes:
  • Fixed a rare case where selecting frames would make GCH stop.
  • Fixed the issue where changing the layer composition mode made the layer turn black.
  • Fixed rare issue where the "Edit character's dimensions" window would crash if it was validated with some wrong input.
  • Fixed RPG Maker VX Ace pack: the frame mapping processes were not properly configured.
  • Fixed issue where the recoloring option that features HSL sliders in item explorer would not recolor properly.
  • Fixed the frame mapping processes manager window: some parts of the window were not properly disabled for some settings.

Hello everyone,

We wish you a happy new year :)

We come with some good news: the DLC issues have been fixed. We apologize again for the trouble it may have caused.
It is now possible to buy any DLC for any GCH version, even if you don't own both GCH versions.
The DLCs you may own with the base GCH version are still available for free with the Portfolio version (and vice versa).

Last but not least, a new GCH update is planned for mid January. It contains a bunch of bug fixes (it notably fixes the layer composition mode issue) and provides a new user interface to help you import custom resources into GCH without having to use the command line tool. The next major update will bring Steam Workshop support.

Hello everyone,

We hope you had a nice Christmas :)

As you may have noticed, since a few days, it has no longer been possible to purchase any base GCH or GCH-PE DLCs, unless one owns both versions of GCH. Be assured that this was not intended. It is the first time we released DLCs across several products, the issue comes from some misconfiguration on our end.

We are sorry about that and we understand the frustration it may have caused. We are working closely with Valve to have this fixed as soon as possible. Considering this is the holiday season, it may not be fixed until mid January.

Trying to change some things on our end until we get a reply from Valve is not an option, as it will make the DLCs unplayable for those who have managed to buy them :/ Of course this would be unacceptable so we will keep things as they are until Valve replies. We will post another announcement when the issue is resolved.

Note that this temporary issue only affects the DLCs. Game Character Hub can still be purchased normally, and you can still purchase the DLCs if you own both versions of GCH.

We apologise for the inconvenience, and we wish you a happy new year!
