Hey guys!
I have installed the Character Generator DLC for RPG Maker MZ. However, when I open the Character Generator, the new parts don't appear. Can anyone help me?

Do you use steam or stand-alone?
Which DLC pack is it(link)?
How did you "install" it?

Save and close your project close MZ. Confirm the DLC was download in steam under download updates.. if it hasn't, click download now(it may be pending).
If it has, just reopen MZ, open a project, and click the generator icon.

EDIT:
Confirm you purchased the pack.

Confirm parts by looking for appropriate section(male, female, kid)

Purchasing the DLC in Steam would probably not do anything to add it to your generator. You need to find where the files were installed (usually a DLC folder in the directory where you installed MZ) and copy them into the generator folder manually. This is because you may already have files in the generator with conflicting names, and Steam wouldn't have a way to handle that.

If you're not sure how to do that, there are bunches of threads on installing generator parts.

Steam automatically installs generator parts(only generator parts).. you wont find any image files in the DLC folder.. only a note saying they were automatically installed.

Huh...that's not the case for some stuff I have in MV. But maybe those packs had mixed asset types so were treated differently.

It happened roughly(from what I remember) around the time mz was released. They made changes to how generator parts are installed.

Yes, I think mixed asset packs may not install automatically.

I don't want to brag or anything but I was entertaining a woman the other night. I told her jokes while she bandaged my foot.
Okay so, I'm using this script, right? And it works. If you press :Y a menu should come up allowing you to choose an item to use. Nothing happens. You press :A to open the event options menu and choose "Use an Item"? The item selection menu appears. I have no idea how I set this up or why it works the way it does. Absolutely bizarre.
A woman gave me her number without me even asking for it. Then she left because she had other patients to see.
oh, hey, I forgot about all this!

my old project got abandoned after I started working too much on stuff I'd already worked on - plus, starting to hate the story I wrote for it. Then, well, a lot of serious life **** went down. I ended up moving across the country, cutting off some people, etc. - **** was rough.

So, uh, I guess I'm back for now? Funny how things work.
I'm glad I'm sticking to my guns on having fighting game mechanics in my game, from what I've read, it's not for everyone. but for the most part, I've made it so you don't have to use them motion inputs for attacks if you don't want to.
