Download and Install MME MikiMikuEffects

To install MME, you first have to download MME.  DOWNLOAD MMEffects (MME Effects) with English Instructions from the LearnMMD Downloads page!

After the download is complete, unzip the file. You will need the latest DirectX version of MMD for this, version 7.39 or higher. Make sure you have the MMD folder unzipped before you start the process. Go into your new MME folder and drag d3d9.dll, MMEffect.dll, and MMHack.dll into the main MMD folder. They just need to be in the same folder as the MikuMikuDance.exe. That MMD folder also contains DATA and USER folders.

Move the 3 .dll files from the MME Download folder into the main MMD Folder.

Now open MMD. Look in the top right corner If you've done it right, MMEffect will show in the upper right corner of the main window.of the toolbar. Do you see MMEffect there? If you do, you have successfully installed MME! Congratulations!

Now you are ready to add some Effects to MikuMikuDance!

    I have the same problem as justin. I used MMD for over a month now and I haven’t used effects since everytime I install it, The MMD program wouldnt open. But If I remove the 3 files from MMEffects from the MikuMikuDance Folder and launch MMD, It works perfectly fine. I installed everything correctly and made sure that I downloaded the x64 version of MMD and MMEffects. They are all the latest version

      And just like with Justin, I’d rather have confirmations rather than affirmations. So, two questions: which versions of MS Visual C++ redistributables do you have installed? How many d3dx9_##.dll files do you have in C:\Windows\System32 and which is the last one?

      Nothing personal, but words like “I installed everything correctly” provoke in me an instinctive reaction.

      Try some other effect! … Raycast is not “just an effect”. Raycast… Ray MMD… looks awesome but you have to proceed through the proper steps in a proper order. LearnMMD.com has pages and pages devoted to Raycast. An effect like SSAO or Autoluminous you can simply load the .x file… Raycast is a process.

    I put in everything in the folder, restarted my computer to see if MME would load yet, but it hasn’t put the option in the corner. I have been looking and looking and looking for the button buts it isn’t there. Can someone please help me out with this?

    I can’t seem to get MME working with the new version… every time I install it, MMD won’t open. But as soon as I remove the three .dll, MMD works fine. Does anybody know how to fix this?

    • January 4, 2018    

      By the “new version”, do you mean that you had successfully worked with some earlier version before?

      Are you sure you have all the necessary software?

        on my older version (on my other computer) it worked fine with MME.

        Currently without MME, MMD works fine. But when I install MME, MMD won’t open

        It doesn’t give me any errors or anything. It just doesn’t open.

        • January 4, 2018    

          First, there are 32 and 64-bit versions of MMD and MME both. You must have those versions to match, otherwise MME won’t work. Second, do you have that additional software installed on your new computer? Do not rely on your memory; go and check.

            I’ve tried both versions, with their proper counterpart, but no luck. As for the second thing, what software are you talking about? Like the DirectX and C++ stuff? Because I tried those as well.

      Same, I’ve tried everything and I still can’t get it to work.
