[PMD Editor] Skirt plugin tutorial

Plugin download [link] The link is in the video description, to find it easier you can use Ctrl+F and find "bowlroll.net". The video also show how to use some advanced features of the plugin but it's too confusing for me.

To install plugin, download the file, extract it, rename the folder "skirt plugin" and put it in the following folder: your PMD editor folder>plugin>user>skirt plugin.

The plugin only works with PMDE version 1.37 or higher, I've tried with 1.00 and the english version but they didn't work.

I've been very hesitant to make character with skirt and long coat because skirt rigging is a pain and this plugin is a life saver. I love it so much and want to share it with everyone ^^

in the joint tab, make sure that all of the joints of the skirt that are at the VERY TOP have the first linked body set to your lower body physic.

Never had this issue before but, the option to adjust the number of bones per row is missing for me. Any suggestions?

It's due DPI scaling. You need to change font size to 100% in control panel display settings.

English translation of the skirt plug-in:

The English skirt plug-in comes pre-installed in this English version of PMX editor:


In Edit, Plug-in, User, it's called Automatic Curved Surface Plug-in (PMX) (a.k.a. skirt plug-in)

For anyone getting error messages, here's the solution. Right-click the skirt plugin folder, click properties, and click unblock.
