===========
tl;dw
===========
to make exported model work on mmd:
1) open model on pmx editor
2) go to "display plane" tab
3) delete all "-1" elements (probably #4 upper body 4,5,6 and #5 arms 2,4,8,10)
4) switch encoding tab to UTF-16
5) save model
after that you able to load model on mmd/mmm without crashing
===========
warning #1: exported model has about 700-900 bones. you can't handle it with usual way, but most of existing motions/poses are suitable.
warning #2: exported model has few ten thousands of vertex/faces and may destroy your computer. you need good cpu/gpu for that.
warning #3: pmx plugin not able to export nipples texture.
warning #4: you need alot of weight/uv drawing on pmxe to avoid clipping.
warning #5: exported model has 500+++ morphs. and all of it are on "eyebrows" tab. you need to change on pmxe it if wanna use.

Is there a way to add a lower BepinEx version maybe to a koikatsu repack? To remove the BepinEx 5 and use Bepinex 4 without affecting the mods?Or is there a way for this plugin to properly work on Bepinex 5?

Ok for those who are wondering, this does no longer works. I have tried a ton of times following the tutorial but it seems to be broken

Don't work within BepinEX 5 and up. Need 4.x.x to work properly.

Is there any update of this export plugin today ?

this plugin doesn't have any updates. moreover, nobody knows who is original maker.

That thing about needing a good GPU for using a MMD/Koikatsu model it's kinda unnecessary to say, as to run that darn game you need one to begin with... to use koikatsu on MMD I went to the pmx editor, got rid of all the bones and physics... kinda useless if you ask me..., rigged the model to a PMX skelly and it worked just fine, although, I sorta replaced the body because the one I got from the game lacked the textures and overlays it had ingame, wish i knew how to get those.

guruguruguro's avatar

yeah, it can be done this way. but most of people who ask about conversion can't re-rig models manually, so

So I followed this tutorial step-by-step and it still crashes...

So is there a way to get the nipple texture?

guruguruguro's avatar
nipples from google + any software like gimp/photoshop/krita/paint.net/etc.

mm, thanks, very usefull, but my converted models are little pale or smth, do you know how to fix it? [ YURI ON ICE ] Happy Birthday Viktor !

not sure what exactly do you mean.

this may be few situations:
1) missing textures ( there is few problems with tongue/hair/mod textures)
A: add texture in pmx editor.

2) texture exist, but UV-mapping is not accurate.
A: adjust UV-map in pmx editor UV plugin (or blender/c4d/other soft which you have) 

3) weird shading
A1: in mikumikudance [Fshadow] not activated. check this box (MMD interface right upper corner) active. check box [low pow] is not active.
A2: in pmx editor go to material tab and check for each material rendering [s-shad] is active.
3.a)missing toons
in pmx editor go to material tab and add toons (as example, toon01.bmp for cloth/acc; toon05.bmp for skin)
3.b)material color issue
in pmx editor go to material tab and adjust diffuse, specular and ambient colors.

p.s. sorry for reply delay, i don't use deviant very often

It never occurred to me that Koikatsu model can be ported into MMD.GJ!
