The EULA of the FSM Castle and Town pack states:

"Your game must include additional documentation that clearly indicates the use of the Resource Pack"

Where do I find this documentation? Do I seriously have to create this myself?

I think it means you just gotta credit it somewhere that you're using the pack.

No, here's the full line:

Your game must include additional documentation that clearly indicates the use of the Resource Pack and the following copy: [Copyright](C) REFMAP

In other words, this is a separate requirement from the "crediting". I have no idea what "documentation" they're referring to that they want me to include.

And the guy who replied above and who instantly assumes everyone is pirating, seems to have no clue that this line IS in the EULA. The EULA even starts with "Thank you for purchasing...". That doesn't seem like a document you'd want to include to your game.

Really confusing. I guess translation was lost somehow from Japanese to English, or whoever wrote this has no idea what he's doing. I could add a text file to my game that says "Hey, the resource pack "X" will be used as assets for this game... DUH", but that seems rather silly (and obvious). I guess it's better than getting sued because of this EULA written by a child though...

Oh dear. Maybe a restaff member would know more about it?

Well yeah, "Additional Documentation" seems pretty vague. Having never purchased it before, I would think that they ask to make a separate document from the game itself, not an entire license txt solely belonging to this one pack. If somehow yours didn't come with it tho... then it'd make sense to just credit it in your readme and put in their big copyright sign. :p

I do think they mean crediting. It is very common to include a ReadMe.txt document with your game that serves as documents the resources you've used.

As many packs/resource creators ask that you include something like that, and/or their web site address, it makes sense to have a simple notepad document in your game folder where these are all listed. It's only a few minutes' work, and keeps everything clear.

It's too bad you can't rename parameters by default. Was thinking it would be neat to do something like change Magic Attack to just "Magic" and Magic Defense to "Spirit."
Ugh why don't I have pixel talent???
Having fun in Orlando! We had a lot of fun at the arcade, even though I didn't win any jackpots this time, and then we went to Outback and got a Blooming Onion. Tomorrow we're driving to Fort Myers to see my stepmom.
Now that I have the XP RTP back, I was looking through the files and found Fighter 7, the inspiration for my first sona! She's evolved since then, but it gave me such nostalgia!
