Camera Controls

These controls adjust camera angle and position in all modes other than movement mode; ie, inventory, touch and h, pose/chat, etc.

  • LMB - Hold to rotate left/right, up/down around center target
  • RMB - left/right to dolly in/out, up/down to raise/lower elevation


You can open your own inventory at any time (MMB, F), and that of other characters by right-clicking their face and selecting Status from the radial menu. Items in in the world and in inventory slots can picked up by left-clicking, switched with other items in inventory slots, placed into any available slot by dropping on the Inventory label, or deleted by dropping into the left-most inventory box.

Beneath the inventory slots, other tabs can be displayed:

  • Stats: Displays character portrait, gender, and current Love and Eros bars. Stats below list the number of times engaged in H, total nakadashi in asoko, hip or mouth, and number of times ejaculated outside. Inventory items dropped on the character portrait will immediately be equipped or consumed.
  • Clothing: The main character has only a hand slot to equip items or weapons in. NPC's have slots for 3 headwear, bra, panties, 5 outerwear garments, hand, feet, and oral, asoko and hip slots for adult items. Checkmarks beneath outwear select which garments and which components of outfits are worn.
  • Info: [NPC's only] Displays personality details and AI parameters [ed: probably best described in Character Creation]

Character Menu

Other options in the Character radial menu:

  • Crouch/Jump Icons: These make the character crouch or jump. If they're next to sittable furniture or a vehicle, they will sit on or in it; if they're seated when jump is selected, they will stand. Note: jumping near another character or room objects has a good chance of making them trip and fall.
  • Call/Bye: Calls the character to follow yours, or leaves them behind. Following characters will travel with you to any map, and will sit on the nearest available furniture/vehicle when you sit. Characters left behind may be saddened or angry, depending on traits.
  • Touch/UnZip: Begin Touch or H modes described below.

Pose/Chat Menu

This opens a number pad from which any of 9 poses can be selected. Left and right buttons cycle through them, the up and down buttons switch between Pose and Chat mode. Any text can be entered, but only kanji and kana will be sent. The last valid message will be macroed to that Pose and used with it.

Other characters watching the character will respond to the combination of Pose and Chat, which can increase or decrease happiness, and provoke anger, fear or tears.

Touch/H Modes

Touch Actions

IK Controls







There are currently only two scenarios in LoveGear (as of DLC3, v1.05) and a default heroine for each. These heroines can be configured to personal preference in the Character Maker, but will always be voiced as Ana (Kawashima Rino) and Makina (Kusayanagi Junko.)

The heroines' scenarios are driven by Touch interaction, and end on an H-mode interaction. The girls dialog will guide through explanation or hints what to touch next to progress the story. In general:

  • Scenarios can be escaped at any time by exiting touch mode without touching the girl. After the scenario has begun it can be resumed by entering the red circle nearest to it, and will always resume at the point which it left off
  • Touching will only be effective on body parts that have been unlocked. For example, until kissing is completed, touching the bust, asoko, or 'hip' (euphemisms courtesy of Teatime) will not progress the scenario, and will not increase ecstacy even if free mode touching.
  • Finishing a stage will make free mode touching accessible by touching it again. For example, after the only kissing stage is complete, further kissing will excape the scenario and enable free play.
  • When the Unzip icon appears, you've escaped the scenario. If you wish to return, exiting touch mode after touching the girl will re-enter the scenario.
  • At times the girl's ecstacy will reset to 0 -- you didn't do anything wrong, this is part of the progression. It will return approximately to the level it dropped from as you resume.
  • Regardless of what the dialog says, Hand Type, Face Type, and rate of stroking make no difference to progression.

Ana (Heroine 0)

Ana's story begins at the start of story mode. Her circle is near the story mode's beginning point, in the character's bedroom at Home, beside the study desk. The stages of her scenario unlock in order:

  • Kissing: only 1 stage, unlocks1st stage bust, asoko, and hip
  • Bust: after 2nd stage undress, 3rd stage unlocks after fully nude
  • Asoko: after 1st stage undress, 3rd stage unlocks after fully nude and unlocks ending H-scene
  • Hip: 2nd stage unlocks after stripped to underwear, 3rd stage unlocks after fully nude (not required to complete scenario)

Makina (Heroine 1)

Makina's story only begins if Ana's proposal is turned down during her scenario. Her circle is in her bedroom at Home, beside her.

  • Kissing: 1 stage, unlocks 1st stage bust, asoko and hip.
  • 1st stage asoko only completes after completing bust and hip, removes outer clothes
  • 2nd stage unlocks when stripped to underwear. 2nd stage hip only completes after 2nd stage bust and asoko, removes underwear
  • 3rd stage unlocks when fully nude, 3rd stage hip only completes after 3rd stage bust and asoko, and ends in an H-scene
