Let’s change Haku’s eyes
using Eye Packs!

Her parts and files are located in your Model folder. They are all mixed up with the files used by the other models included with your MMD download, and it’s not easy to tell which files belong to which models.Easily change eye colors using MMD Eye packs!

To identify Haku’s files, you need to download the English PMDEditor if you don’t already have it from our Downloads page.

Open up PMDEditor. Now, choose the MMD model you want. I’m choosing Haku Yowane. To find out the name of the file she uses for her eyes, click the MA tab. Highlight the top item in the list. Now use your down arrow key to move through that list. Watch for the name of the eye file to appear in the texture window. For this model, Haku Yowane, it is #8 on the list … the file name is eye4.bmpRemember to be a good MMDer ... copy, modify, share responsibly! Keep the Faith-MMD

Locate her eye file in the MMD Model folder. Rename eye4.bmp to be AAeye4.bmp or Haku_eye4.bmp … something to change the name but keeps the old name so you can find it again, later.

Choose a new eye from an eye pack. I’m choosing the teal-green color from Krystal-Sakura of DeviantArt. It’s part of her “Sparkly Eyes” pack.

Visit Krystal-Sakura on Deviant Art to get "Sparkly Eyes" for MMD 7.39

Make a copy of your new eye file and paste the copy into the same folder as your model, then rename the new eye file eye4.bmp (or whatever your model’s eye name used to be).

Open MMD to see your model with the new eyes!

(To get the original eyes back, delete that new eye file and restore the original name to the original eye file … in this case, eye4.bmp)
