■ Changing/Uploading Virtual Characters on the App
● Tap “Character” to check which one is in use (default). You can upload your own virtual character, too!
To upload your own character compress your Live2D file to a .zip file format and save it to your phone. Then tap ① “Add” to upload the file of your virtual character.
● Uploading Virtual Characters on the Webpage
● Go to the 17LIVE webpage → Click ① “My Virtual Character” on the top right → ② Upload your virtual character here.
17LIVE Webpage: https://17.live/
File size: 35MB
※ The format must be a Live2D file folder compressed to .zip. Please check that the folder contains model3.json and the file it describes.
※ You can only upload 3 characters each on the app and the webpage. For built-in characters, you can have 7 virtual characters in total associated with your account. If you don't have a virtual character, you can design one with help from a 2D animation studio, or you can simply purchase a Live2D model.
※ Please export Live2D files to a suitable format to avoid possible issues with virtual characters' facial expressions. Currently, we support Cubism 3 and above.
※ Please name Live2D files and folders in alphanumeric characters to avoid garbled character names and incomplete files during file compression.
※ On Windows OS, We recommend using 7zip as the compression tool to compress the folders.
