Note: The following information is awaiting an overhaul, as YandereDev has stated that this code is inefficient. This data is to be trusted up until the May 2018 builds. Edit
Additionally, as of January 3rd, changing Student 33's name will trigger several scenarios which all ultimately lead to crashing the game. It is advised not to work past this with a new DLL.
The JSON and XML files are files located within the StreamingAssets folder that have influence on data for each character.
The JSON file is what data on students is taken from. It contains data on almost everything on the Student Profile screen, the exceptions being Additional Info (stored in the DLL files) and the portrait used (stored in its respective folder). The JSON file may be edited successfully using Notepad or any online editor to produce 'custom' characters, however incorrect data has the potential to completely break every student, regardless of how much data is edited.
The JSON file must be named 'Students' to work and must have the JSON extension, otherwise all characters will break.

The identification variable of the character.
Characters with certain IDs will have special events and voiced lines. For example, the NPC with ID 1 is originally Taro Yamada, the designated Senpai of Yandere Simulator; because of this they will have a pink aura, react to the player's behaviour uniquely and speak with a male voice.
If a character's ID is changed, they will simply gain variables associated with the ID, such as destination definitions. As long as no two characters share the same ID, and the ID is valid, the game will run smoothly.
Affects the character's model and accesses to certain animations.
|0||The character will use a female model and animation set.|
|1||The character will use a male model and animation set.|
Note: Female models are capable of more animations (e.g. eating bento and reacting to cameras). Entering a female animation for a character with a male model will cause the student to break.
|Invalid||Causes the character to not load at the start of the day.|
