    "The Hobbit" Fangame - Legal?

    I have no idea where this thread would go so I'll stick it here. I am thinking about making a game based on The Hobbit by J. R. R. Tolkien in RPG Maker. However, I am concerned as to legality thereof. Can someone with some legal knowledge tell me if it is legal to make a non-commercial game...

    Legal issue for development with people who don't own RPG Maker

    So I'm having a little doubt concerning the legality of having some people who don't own RPG Maker MV (the Engine in which I work and legally own). So basically, we're 5: - I do all the coding, battle design, eventing, and reformatting sprites to work in RPG Maker MV. - the others just create...

    Some legal problem about supporting data format in RPG Maker MV

    I used to enjoy RMMV(I bought it on steam,full prize), but I found out that I my wish to make a game engine is bigger than making a game... (also, I HATE JAVESCRIPT!) So I'm making my own game engine no. And RPG Maker series are so good that I can't help to have a thought to support some data...

    Can I name a fictional country after a bussiness?

    There's a company in my state and their name sounds like a fantasy city. It's not an actual word, though. Would I get in any legal trouble if I named the country in my game the same name as their business? I know I can come up with millions of other names but it just feels right.

    Video formats, codecs, rights of use in commercial games (webm, h.264 mp4)

    I was wondering, does Degica or Enterbrain grants us the right to use codecs like h.264 mp4 as developers? I mean this can be an issue when it comes to commercial products, especially on a cross platform game, right? So what is the case here? Can we freely use h.264 mp4 or shall we stick with...
  10. How do I Register my Game?

    Hello! I'm an ultimate noob. I've read that after you purchase an RPG Maker engine, you have to register the engine and the game you make with the company before legally selling it. However, I haven't seen anything on the official site that allows you to do so. I've purchased several engines...

    Legal Questions Regarding Commercial Deployment

    So, these are questions regarding commercial deployment and/or distribution of a game once it is completed.  RPG Maker MV is the version that I am using just as an FYI. I didn't see anything in the ToS or EULA expressly forbidding these two things in particular, and they both seem to fall...

    Can you only use a DLC in One Specific Maker Legally?

    So, I bought the RPG Maker VX Ace Time Fantasy DLC pack today in the sale.  I read the EULA, but found myself a little confused when I came across this:   "The resources in Time Fantasy are created for use in game development only, using RPG Maker MV. Alternatively, you may also use these...

    Using VXACE assets?

    Alright so, getting RMMV cost me a ton of money. I don't mind spending even more money to help me make my game. (( Although I wish I spent my money on VXACE just cause the icons are so much nicer LOL )) So yanfly has a freebie for VXACE stuff, and I was wondering, would I get in trouble with...

    I have question about some legal stuff.

    I don't know where to ask this, so I'll ask it here, sorry if it's the wrong place. If a project is made with the ILLEGAL version of RPG Maker and then compiled into a game with the LEGAL verson of that same engine, is the that game legal or not?

    Legality of buying from the Japanese store.

    I was just wondering if it was legal to buy a resource pack from the Japanese and use those resources in an American version of RPG Maker? I know the resources usually come to our side within a few months of each other, but I'm feeling particularly impatient with certain pack and want get it now.
  16. Vx tilesets in XP

    Hi! I am going to buy RPG Maker, either Vx or XP, because of their cheaper price. I like the color scheme and the characters of VX better, but I like the mapping feature of XP best. Is it possible, and legal, for me to use the tilesets and characters from VX in XP without buying both? Or does...

    Terms Of Use On AGK Assets?

    I debated about where this topic would go, and I didn't feel comfortable with it being in resources or resources request, as it's a question more about terms of use. I noticed that App Game Kit has some fairly large graphic packs. And well, I'm not sure of their terms of use. I've looked on...

    I read on this website http://blog.rpgmakerweb.com/tips-and-tricks/what-can-i-do-with-my-dlc/ that with RTP DLC, you can only use it if you own the corresponding RPG Maker version it's made for. Does this mean, for example, that I cannot legally use the Samurai DLC with RMVXA if I do not own...
