Game Character Hub is the next version of a program I designed. It is still under development. The latest release is called Fusion Maker.
Game Character Hub is a helper program for 2D game design. There is a series of 2D game design software: RPG Maker, which is made to design a particular kind of games: RPGs. Game Character Hub is mainly for two issues of that series: RPG Maker XP and RPG Maker VX, but not only.
Game Character Hub provides additional tools for RPG Maker or game design in general. In RPG Maker, you need to have graphics resources in order to design the game. Game Character Hub helps you to create those resources, missing in RPG Maker. Those resources can be designed for RPG Maker or any other program like.
Game Character Hub offers advanced functions for game desgin. Here are some of those.
With Game Character Hub, you can create characters for both RPG Maker XP and RPG Maker VX, and even for any other program like.
You must create them from single graphics items picked up from an item library, provided with Game Character Hub. You may also run some functions on them (such as changing the color of an item).
For instance if you intend to create a knight, all you have to do is pick up a nude body, an armor, a pair of eyes, a hair... you may change the hair color if you like. Then the character is made and ready to be implemented in a video game.
In RPG Maker XP, tilesets are used in order to create a map in the game. A tileset is an image made of 32*32-pixel-sized tiles. Each tile represents an item or a part of it, like a barrel, a door, or the roots of a tree.
RPG Maker XP allows you to use only one tileset a map. So if you want to have a map with tiles from two different tilesets (or more) you must create a bigger tileset which contains all of them.
With Game Character Hub you may save your character in different copies, by shifting the color of some items, such as hair. This is useful when in a game, you may need to have hundreds of different characters.
There are several versions of RPG Maker, and every version has its own way to store characters. Game Character Hub allows you to convert a character from a version to another. This includes RPG Maker 2003, XP and VX.
Game Character Hub is still under development. However the former release (ie. Fusion Maker) is available in download for free. Fusion Maker is only available in French, although Game Character Hub will be available both in English and French.
It only runs on Windows (XP, Vista, 7).
Game Character Hub is the brand new name of Fusion Maker. It used to be RPG Maker Tools, but it has been renamed to a more explicit name: Game Character Hub.
