Frequently Asked Questions

What is Animelee?

Animelee is a purely aesthetic mod of Melee. It uses both custom models and textures to make the characters look like they are cell shaded and stylized like anime characters.

Does it work online?

Yes! Animelee is Slippi compatible and will continue to be supported and updated in the event that desyncs are discovered by the community.

Can I share this?

Please do! I made Animelee for the Smash community. Feel free to share, stream, mod and tweak the skins however you like. Just be sure to let people know it's Animelee!

Custom skins?

I am working with some very talented modders to fill out the rest of the cast. Consider joining the Patreon to support ongoing development of Animelee!

How do I install?

Just download the pack, and unzip the files. Drag and drop your legally obtained Melee ISO onto the .bat file and wait - it will build the Animelee ISO for you.

Having trouble?

Make sure your legally obtained ISO has the correct MD5 checksum. You can test how to do that here. You must also use a clean ISO that doesn't have any other mods on it.
