UltraKiss

 

In 2002 I developed a computer program that implements the Kisekae Set system, KiSS, a Japanese graphics system originally developed to facilitate costume changes on virtual dolls.


June 22, 2024. Kisekae UltraKiss has been updated to Version 3.7.4.

UltraKiss 3.7.4 is now released to provide online access to over 4500 KiSS sets freely available on OtakuWorld.com. Use the UltraKiss Portal (File-Open Portal) to access the KiSS Online Library. Within the Portal, click on any URL link to a zip or lzh file to download the file and open it in UltraKiss.

UltraKiss 3.7.3 distributes a new launcher for a visual application to launch all the Scarecrow game sets. Installing UltraKiss will create a new application UltraKiss-TheOwl to automatically start and enable download and execution of all Scarecrow sets. This application is a full replacement for PlayFKiss when running all Scarecrow sets.

UltraKiss 3.7 improved memory management and support the Scarecrow game sets. UltraKiss is a full replacement for PlayFKiss when running all Scarecrow sets.

UltraKiss 3.7.3

Kisekae sets are drawings of anime characters with many different costumes, packaged in a file for viewing the work. KiSS is a presentation method that allows the artist to program certain actions as you interact with the anime doll.

UltraKiss was developed to help artists build their KiSS sets. UltraKiss reads and interprets KiSS data files.  These files contain computer graphics images, color palettes and data control files.  Objects, such as the doll figure, costumes, and other items are constructed from layered image components that usually show only parts of the complete image.  Objects could be manipulated through user actions or through  a simple event processing model that enables timed animations or other actions if objects are touched or dragged across the screen.  Color variations, enabled through palette changes in UltraKiss, could also be used to produce different results.  UltraKiss supported multimedia sound, graphic animation and worldwide web access to KiSS sets through an integrated Internet browser.

In 2008 I ceased this work. Computers were faster and the KiSS model was replaced with better animation tools.

In 2018 I removed this application from my websites. Later, I had a request to restore the application.
