      When did you GET that error… what were you doing? … You drop the three DLL files into the same folder as the MMD.exe… and you should have MME. At no time in that process do you get an error statement… until, maybe, you tried to use an effect… ?

    What version of MME has the AL_EmitterRT, VertexPosRT, and VertexPOS_MaskRT tabs in the Effect Mapping Window. I running 64 bit versions of MMD-931 and MME-037 but all I get is the Main tab. Are these tabs on an older version or is there an issue with my install? Thank you!

    • June 16, 2018    

      By default, MME only has one Main tab. Other tabs appear as a result of loading certain effects. Specifically, AL_EmitterRT is part of AutoLuminous, and two others you mentioned are most probably from Beamman’s SelfBurning.

    I don’t think this got posted correctly last time, but I seem to have a weird issue when setting up MME with MMD 9.31. Instead of enabling MME functionality, d3d9.dll appears to stop MMD from running altogether. I tried this with a fresh download of MME. MMD works fine on its own – it’s just MME that’s strange. I’ve tried both MME versions. Neither work.

    .Please help me :(

      Do you have all the necessary software installed?

        Yes i have,i think is a problem of windows 10 because in other vesrions never happen nothing like this.All effects work in windows 8,7 but in 10 i have this problem.

        • February 1, 2018    

          Indeed, Windows 10 may require much more shamanic dances around it before it agrees to cooperate, but eventually it can be cowed (or so some of LearnMMD visitors report; I do not use it myself). All right, let’s start with screenshots of your C:\Windows\System32 folder, MMD folder, and Programs&Features. It’s not that I don’t trust your competence, but there always may be some small details missed in conversation. Never rely on testimonies about something you can verify for yourself, and all that.

            No problem,but i dont understand so well, you want to see all folder
            or just some specifics pastes? Have many files in this folder.Do you think it could be a problem caused by the direct x version?

            • February 2, 2018    

              What I want to know is basically the same as in the text linked above: is there DirectX properly installed, are there *all* necessary C++ libraries, and what DLLs are placed in the MMD folder. And also what your video card is.

              And yes, whenever the culprit isn’t clear, the DirectX is usually the prime suspect.

                I’m thinking of uninstalling my current version of direct x which is the 12 and download the 9 which is the “default” of mmd. I’ll draw a print from the CC + that I have.

                  Thanks for the help.

                  • February 2, 2018    

                    Well, your chart of C++ libraries looks good. You don’t actually have to uninstall the DirectX 12 you have. The offline installation pack that our Downloads or Troubleshooting pages refer to should install just fine even with the higher version present.

                      well I think I’m just unlucky, repairing well I realized that some effects work and others do not. Most of the effects I apply directly to the model work without much of a problem like the greener shader that I quite like, while others that load in accessory manipulation like the Difusion make a red square on the ground and do not work. Thank you so much for trying to help.

                    • February 2, 2018    

                      Do those other effects have Japanese letters in their file names? If so, try to rename their .x and .fx files, making sure their first names stay matching to each other.

                      Some friends help me too and they said some effects do not work very well with 64 bits which is my system version and mmd, changing the windows version can help in your opinion?

                    • February 3, 2018    

                      I never had problems with 64-bit version not playing some effects. Still, you can try to download the 32-bit version of MMD *and* MME (as long as their versions match each other, they should work well with 64-bit Windows) and see if you get better results.

                      Hello, I just went on to say that after all this time, the problem was simple, I had a folder with all the effects in it, so I put an effect that was out of this folder and the red square did not appear, so I tried with another effect out of this folder and again the effect worked and the red square did not appear. I hope this helps other people. Thank you for your help.

    This version only uses .emm files (No one can’t specify what it even is or what it’s for) But if you download a previous version of MMEffect, it should accept the .fx/.x files as usual~

    • December 27, 2016    

      1) .emm files are generated by MMD as a supplement to .pmm files and have nothing to do with MME.
      2) I have v037 myself and it works exactly like the previous version.

      Describe the process you use to supposedly open .fx files. Apparently you’re doing something that is not “it”.

    the effects “.x” doesn’t work
    what i do??? :c

    • June 16, 2016    

      What you do is, apparently, something wrong. As long as you don’t tell *what* you do, nobody can tell you more.
