Hi everyone, I started off passing by from the internets to leech some picture files and I actually got hooked on the premise of this game here. So much so that I barely made it one step into the game because I was so obsessed with the idea of making girl packs.

I'm having trouble with some basic concepts, I tried reading through the manuals and some FAQs and guides on the forum but came up empty, and I'm hoping the pros on here can help me out.

How exactly does the program handle the generation of "random girls" and associate them with the proper image files? Specifically, how does it read and partition numerous rgirlx files? I've been tinkering around with existing girl packs I downloaded to test the mechanics and for some reason, and this is odd, when I have three rgirlx files (with the properly named resource folders) the slave market only generates girls that pull images from the first resource folder. The other slaves in the market have no associated image files at all. When I remove that one, it does the same thing, only with the second resource folder. I'm trying to get the slave market to populate random girls that pull resources from a mix of all three folders at once.

EDIT: After some more research I tried to compile three of the rgirlx files into one using the editor. That seemed to clear up the lack of images for some of the random girls, probably because the game doesn't like numerous rgirlx files? However, that still leaves me with a strange problem...depending on how I arrange the order of the xml segments in the rgirlx file, sometimes the girls generated in the slave market will pull from 2 out of 3 of the resource folders. Sometimes only 1. But never all three. It's bizarre, interesting, curious, and a bit frustrating.

Would really appreciate some help, this game here is a new surprise obsession of mine and I'd like to help you guys build on it. And of course, if you guys don't have any specific answer or if my questions are just way too noobish, I would gladly accept any redirection to more manuals and documentation. Cheers and thanks in advance!

Welcome to this world!!  Get MANY for the girl packs.  This helps with the mechanics of this game  You are asking right for help.  I suggest looking in all the masters on this page to look and gt packs available.  Plus the Forced discussions above this has MUCH advice.

I'm not much of a tech wiz but I have been making packs for some time now. From my understanding and experience the game will pull the pictures from the character folder depending on the name it has inside the rgirlsx file (Please note the name of the file itself doesn't matter, it's the name inside the file that the game reads, if you open the file in notepad++ the name is located in the 3rd line.), make sure that the name matches exactly the name of the resource folder you like to use. This might be why you're seeing no pictures on some of the random girls and I've made this mistake a few times starting out. Hope this helps somewhat.

Hi Plonker! As it happens, I realize that I'm actually using the girlpack you made. Thanks for the remarkable work by the way, it's the most excellent collection I could have imagined. Maybe you can help me out, I tried to put in a few of the folders along with the corresponding rgirlx files, but for some reason at the slave market, all the random girls generated only pull data from one or two of the rgirlx files. I tried putting in 3, or 4, and all the random generated girls only read the first two rgirlx files. Strange. Do you think you have an idea why this happens? Thanks again for your work, I appreciate it a lot.

Thank you for the kind words, I honestly have no idea without looking at the file. other then making sure that the names match and maybe check that both "is human?" and "catacombs?" are NOT both checked as the game won't generate the rgirlsx girl since humans won't spawn in the catacombs, that's a mistake I made when I first started making packs.
