I hope this is the right place to ask.

Let's say, I'm converting assets from MV to MZ, then release it online. Is it allowed? As what I'm doing here will be releasing something that is locked behind paywalls and furthermore I can't control what the downloader will do to the asset. Whether they have legal MV/MZ.

The enlightenment about this matter will be much appreciated.
Thanks!

What do you mean conversion? I thought MV and MZ both are 48x48...

What are you releasing online? Your game that uses those assets, or the assets themselves?

If you are releasing a game, it should be encrypted, which means people can't just open the files and use them. And people don't need MV or MZ in order to play deployed games, so you don't need to check.

If you are talking about releasing the assets, I don't believe you can sell assets based on the RTP. I might be wrong about that, so if that is what you plan to do, definitely make sure it's okay first.

It depends on the ToS/EULA of whatever resources you are converting.

If that alows editing and reposting, then you can post the conversions. If it does not allow that, then not.

For example the RTP allows that, and a lot of the tilesets or sprites posted on this forum are RTP-edits.
On the other hand a lot of the original resources posted here on the forum do not allow reposts even if they are allowed to be used in your commercial games - their artists gave you the licence to use them but everyone who wants to use them has to download them from those artist's topics as reposts were not allowed.
And purchased shop-resources have still other requirements, they not only are forbidden to repost but you are required to encrypt your game when using them.

So you need to specifically ask for what resources, there is no blanket rule for everything.

@Shaz Only the RTP assets, should be on 'MZ Resource' thread. But I will still need to link it on hosting site like itch.io to download the sample project, that's where 'releasing online' come from.

I'm not going to sell it. Although releasing it for free also needs some clarification on whether I will violate the term or not by doing that.

@Andar Got it! It should be okay then because I'm just using & edit the RTP asset.

So the number one complaint I get so far is the levels are simply too large. What's funny is in testing I deemed levels taking too long and actually shortened them. Figuring I could beat them in 5-6 minutes so players would be able to do so in probably double that. I was apparently very mistaken, only one player has mentioned even reaching the second area. Let alone the first boss. :kaoswt:
I don't believe it. I actually did some proofreading in my game - and fixed some grammar errors! I feel so accomplished, knowing I can actually proofread my own writing!
...I've had a bad day, okay? Bad enough for me to want to proofread stuff. :yswt2:
Ughhh, July is not my month. Thankfully, it's nearly done.

How do I get the new version of the character creator? Thank you in advance!

I fixed the lips and noses for MZ! The files have been updated.

Ugh, I opened MV after a few weeks and I'm completely lost on what I was working on.
Does it happen to someone else or am I the only disorganized one around? :kaoswt:
