Hello all! I am very new to this despite having VX Ace and a lot of resources for many years. I have recently come back to trying my hand with it...and stop being a chicken...

An issue I have with the Character Generator for VX Ace is its...kinda naff portraits for your character. From what little I have seen of the MV Character Generator is much better. Problem I have is that I am picky and prefer the look of VX Ace sprites to the chibi MV sprites, so I would prefer to stick with VX Ace.

However...could one use MV Character Generator portraits for VX Ace? I would happily buy the MV Character Generator tool and any add-ons to do this. Is this doable, gang?

Thank you for reading. :ehappy:

I am guessing that if you are wondering about buying the MV generator tool then you don't have MV Also, it is not for sale separately.

There is, however, Game Character Hub available on Steam which does gives you MV style faces. Is that what you mean by portraits? Your problem there is that MV faces are formatted to a different size than Ace's. Ace is 96 x 96 pixels, whereas MV faces are, iirc, 144 x 144. It would be messy to resize them.

I do not have MV, no. XD

I have VX Ace, but I do have the Game Character Hub! Upon opening it I've just gotten two update packages for it with MV stuff included. This is great! Apparently it can also use MV DLC packs? That is good to know. Would you say MV would be worth getting just for that then?

Yeah, the sizing might be an issue, but this still gives me something to toy around with. Any progress is better than the limbo I usually find myself in. Thank you for the heads up there. :)

Great minds seem to think alike! I spotted the news about the sale and didn't even hesitate to buy it as well as a bunch of Character Generator packs. XD

Thanks for the advice, gang! I really appreciate it. Given me a great peace of mind and new avenues to experiment with for my project! :ehappy:
