MME Programs

MMEffect

This is a plugin created by 舞力介入P/ BuryokuKainyuu-P that allows you to load effects into MMD. Without this plugin, you will not be able to load any effects. We recommend downloading the latest version of MME for the best results. On this page you will also find all the information you need to run MMD, such as C++ packages and DirectX.

MikuMikuShading

This program by 針金P/ Wire-P allows you to edit MME shaders without editing the code.

https://harigane.at.webry.info/201003/article_3.html.

Visual Studio Code

This free software by Microsoft is useful for anyone who needs to edit MMD effects through the code. You can edit MME code in any code reader (even notepad!) however I recommend this software because it color-codes useful areas you can edit.

https://code.visualstudio.com/.

PMD/PMXe

While these programs are modelling software, some effect controllers are built in PMDe/PMXe, created by 極北P / Kyokuhoku- P. Some controllers may only load and save in PMDe, so I recommend downloading both of them. The button takes you to the English versions of the programs, with PMDe translated by ibozo and PMXe translated by inochi-PM.
