Project Description

CharacterManaJ is an application to create a single image by superimposing multiple selected images. It is able to design the avatar by different dresses and different parts by layering them, but not limited to it. In order to run charactermanaj you need to have some images first.

Important! This program does not include image data.

Please prepare the data yourself. Refer to the Wiki document for the procedure.

The app breaks because of the language settings. Any chance of getting an English version? I would love to use this app but am currently not able to.
Generous program to make various sprites.
Cannot run due to file and path names breaking on non-Japanese systems (a guess)

I'm able to run the program, but everything is blank when I do. I can't figure out whether I'm doing something wrong.
