PMXE 0254f a Newer PMXE in English – More Complete Translation – Tools Reconfigured

A feature article by KillerBeer ... an Author on LearnMMD.com!What’s the deal with the new PMXE 0254f? I can no longer do this and that in it! What is new in PMXE 0254f… the new PMXE in English?

(or not completely)

Up until recently, we’ve been recommending the 0222 version of PMX Editor to our readers for editing their MMD models. Even though more advanced versions had been released since then, this one had much more comprehensible English translation (made by EosCustom3D), and therefore was more preferable, especially for beginners. Well, no longer. From now on, our Downloads page PMXE link leads to the newer English translation, courtesy of Inochi-PM. This is a 0254f version, currently matching the latest Japanese release on the PMXE homepage. Remember to UNBLOCK the ZIP before you extract all.

This is the latest version of PMXE in English… but still, upgrading to the newer PMXE has its difficulties. Along with newer features (that one can simply put aside, until he really needs them), there are features that model-makers got used to, and that work differently now, causing confusion.

Morph Editing now on one panel…

First, there’s morph editing. Previously, it was performed in a two-panel Morph Edit window, with left half being the field of operation, and the right one displaying changes dynamically. Now, the newly summoned SubView window only has one panel that receives no edits no matter what you do to it. Don’t worry, it’s still simple. All changes are performed in the *main* PMXView window (that is updated with the 100% state of the morph you chose to edit while the Editing mode is on), and the SubView demonstrates changes like the former right pane. You can simply place it on the right side of PMXView, giving it semblance to the familiar two-pane look.

Batch Renaming has a new look…

Second feature that was changed is Batch Renaming. Compared to the old Name Repair panel, the newer one is much more powerful and easy to use once you get accustomed to it.

Choose the group of names you want to edit in the dropdown list to the left. “JP Name” and “EN Name” columns display the current state of all names, while you enter changes into the “EN Replacement” column (or “JP Replacement”, if there’s such need). Once you’re ready, hit “GO” button. You can also use the “Edit->Japanese Name – English Name” menu command to rename most of standard-named Japanese bones into English with a single click (you may still need other means for translating bones with non-conventional names, though).

“File->PMX info” now reports in English…

Bonus feature is “File->PMX Info” command, inspecting the model for possible errors. While present in the previously promoted version, it had its output in Japanese, thus making its usefulness not quite obvious. Now that it’s fully translated, we urgently recommend it to every MMDer who wants to make their own models.

(you can use “filter” buttons to only view important messages)

    I got MMD to work perfectly fine but whenever I click on PMX, it will had a load bar and then nothing will happen. No error message or anything. Last I checked I thought I downloaded the right material. I just know I tried different versions and it all ends the same.

      Not making sense: “I just know I tried different versions and it all ends the same.” What different versions? … and tell us about your computer; maybe it doesn’t have the guts required to run PMXE.

        What all do you want to know? Mine is a 64 bit Windows 10 and I run it on a Macbook. I meant to say I downloaded different 64 bit English PMXEs, even the latest ones. Am I not extracting the files correctly or my computer is just weak?

      I don’t know how that can be… I just re-downloaded it… intentionally did NOT check Properties and unblock the zip… then did extract… got new folder… opened the folder and ran the 64-bit version… English. Then I did a right-click/properties on the zip and, this time, checked the Unblock box… did an Extract… opened the new folder and ran the 64-bit version… English.
      Sorry… I got no idea.
      Any of these links should work to download PMXE in English.

      What do you mean “not translated”? It’s in English.

    Hello! For the last week, I have downloaded so many different versions of PMD/PMX Editor and I can not seem to get it to open. I do have a Windows 10 64-bit and was wondering is there an Editor for this particular computer and if so, how can I be able to get it to open? Thank you!

    You can also hide certain bones, physics, and joints just like the material tab
