Troubleshooting ⸮ʘʖ̯ ʘ?

Error When Downloading:

For some reasons in some circumstances Chrome claims that the file  "is not commonly downloaded and may be harmful" and blocks download of this file. To keep the installer simply click on the little '^' arrow and select "keep". 

Common Errors:

  • No parts appear and everything is just '()'
    • Click the edit button and delete the faces folder
    • Restart the app
    • This error generally occurs because you have deleted one of the .txt documents in the faces folder, deleting and restarting the app will create a new folder and the app should function as normal
  • Certain parts appear as undefined
    • Open the .txt relevant to the part which contains the undefined part
    • Remove any blank lines
    • Save and restart
  • Certain parts such as ears and eyes are both on one side of the face
    • Open the .txt relevant to the part which is broken
    • Look for the problematic part
    • Separate the left and right parts with a space
    • Save and restart

Thanks! (˵ᴗ˛ᴗ˵)ノ⌒♡*:。


Nice, but why an app and not a website?


because I wanted to learn more about using electron, and because publishing an app is more satisfying than publishing a website
