About nizima LIVE settings files

When selling items that include configured nizima LIVE settings, you must first register the items in nizima LIVE and then export the settings file and include it with the work you are selling.
Including a settings file makes it possible to display the item name, specific method of use, restrictions, and other settings in the nizima LIVE item list window.


Works can be loaded in nizima LIVE and sold on nizima even without including the nizima LIVE settings file.

The settings file is saved in the original nizima LIVE “.live.json” format.

The information that can be saved for each item is listed below. For details about item information, please see Registered item settings.

(Steps 1 and 2 are the same as above.)
3. After configuring the settings, click […] > [Save] to save the settings.
4. From [Option] > [Open item folder] in the nizima LIVE main window, open the folder for the desired item and include the .live.json file from that folder in the folder for the item to be sold on nizima.


If there is a file with the name “ico_xxx.png” in an item folder, that image is displayed.
(Supported formats: .png, .jpeg, Recommended size: 184 × 184 px)

When “ico_xxx.png” is not present, an automatically generated thumbnail is displayed in nizima LIVE by default for Live2D items (only items registered in nizima LIVE), animation items (all items), and still image items (all items).

Standard for item display position

When producing an item, it is recommended that you avoid having excessive transparent areas around the item whenever possible. With nizima LIVE 1.1.0, the item is displayed in a position and size based on the canvas. As such, if there are excessive transparent areas around the item, or if the item is positioned toward the canvas edge, the item may be displayed outside the window when placed in nizima LIVE.
