How to fix non-moving mmd parts/rigging tut by EchoBlossom123 How to fix non-moving mmd parts/rigging tut by EchoBlossom123
So here you have a model you've put time and effort into editing.
you open it up in MMD to test it out....and then this happens.

Part of the hair decides it doesn't want to move.

Okay so I've come across this problem quite a few times when making a model. This problem ususally occurs when you delete off a bone that something was attached to- in my case here, the hair had pigtails with bones in 'em. And becasue I deleted the bones off, this happened.

Feel free to ask questions! but before you do, please read this tutorial first: [link]
this also helps explaing the little * thingy I put in near the end. that slider circled can change how attached the vertices are to the bone.
it's like percentages- 100/bright red is stuck completely, while 50/purple is only half stuck on.

Blue is not stuck on at all.

Omg please excuse my handwriting XDD

EDIT: I'm all for helping people, but this is a TUTORIAL. Not somewhere to post 'pls fix my model for me.' I can't handle all of these requests :iconlazycryplz:

I don't mind taking a look at people's models, but if you're asking me to do what is shown in the tutorial, then what's the point of even having this up here? try a few times more before asking me, please.

Mine's all black. And I dunno how to save it or whatever because I'm not seeing where you hit the button that makes it work? *just a tad confused*
could you please tell; me how to fix my model? i'm in distress about it. when i load motion data for her, my head floats up and tilts to the side, then doesn't move. the rest of her body moves just fine. please help?

sounds like the head bone isn't connected to the rest of the body ;a;

check the parent/child connection between the head and neck bones

I rigged my models hair but for some reason when I load a motion onto her her hair doesn't stay on the base! Help! ;-;

it might be that the hair bones and the head bone aren't connected ;x; I'm not sure, but… and… (bottom part)would help?

Hmm...I tried it again but this time with the clothing and made sure all was connected but for some reason it got all screwed up ;-;
