Game Character Hub is an art program that is focused on game asset creation, especially RPG Maker's. It provides a built-in generator for character and tileset creation.
Game Character Hub will come as a great help for 2D game design, by greatly easing characters for your video games! There is a built-in support for the RPG Maker series (XP, VX, and VX (Ace)), but you may create characters for your own custom engine as well.
Game Character Hub provides a large item library, containing pre-made character parts like hairs, clothes. Pick the items you want to build your own character in no time! You may also import your own items! Enjoy a powerful character generator, a smart layer system along with a complete pixel editor!
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.
