Their license allowed use in and out of RPG Maker, regardless of which maker you legally own; so yes, they can all be used for Ace. However, only the ones in VX were formatted for VX (which by definition means they will work in Ace as well). So if you use the ones that were made with 2K/3 in mind, you'll have to reformat them to work, including reconfiguring the size to be 32x32 and redoing the auto tiles so they work with Ace's auto tile format.


Very much worth it, though, to put in the effort to convert the 2k/3 Mack tiles, since VX only received about a quarter of the total Mack resources that 2K/3 received.
 

That 2003 project file has some very useful things, thank you for the reminder.  Now we can legally use them correct?
That is what I keep hearing, since Mack's stuff was original.

This is what the license said prior to the site going down. I copied it into a word doc for my own use at the time, and it's probably a good thing I did. Whether or not the closing of the site (and what becomes of the site in the long term) changes these terms, I don't know.

Also note this only applies to the REFMAP materials on the site. Anything that was edited by others or provided within their community, those probably have other terms and may or may not be allowed commercial use.

I have a question.. were there ever any base sprites made in mack's style?.. sorry for my ignorance but I only started using rpg maker last year and I also don't know if it'd be ok to try making a base sprite out of one of mack's sprites.. I hope it's alright for me to ask this. thank you for reading and for helping people have access to the resources.

grief... if MV didn't have certain plugins already, I think I'd upgrade to MZ. seeing like 10 MV plugins in 1 MZ one is hilariously convenient lol.
Have you already checkes out my mapping tutorial on the blog? I would love to hear your feedback and things you'd like to see in the future!

one of character for my upcoming game idk how to design o_O

Designing patches that can 'augmented' to clothing based armor. Such good fun. A bit time consuming due to the need to create image displays, but the patches are limited so it's not too tiring.
Note: lol, posting this made me find a couple mistakes.
Why VX/VX Ace is a little Neglected?
