So, I published my game to google play using only the included RTP, plug ins etc from the Trial RPG MAKER MV software
then they rejected my game they said I am using copyrighted material, then I show to them the rpg maker webpage in the part
that says that I have permission from rpg maker enterprise to make and share any game I make, they just told me this in another email:

"We were not able to validate your account's relationship to the original content or brand owner (http://www.rpgmakerweb.com/). In order for us to process your appeal, please reply with verifiable documentation that your application is authorized. Please be advised we will not be able to respond or reinstate your application without the above documentation."

I think this must be solved soon, because I wont be the first to upload RPG MAKER MV into google play, and all their works will be
rejected.

Ps, I put the game for free so just imagine what will happends if someone will put his game for sale.


¿Can someone help me?

By "uploading to Google Play" are you indicating that you are asking money for your game?  If that's the case, you don't have the right to do that with the trial version.

Once you purchase it you could copy the EULA which says you are able to make, distribute and sell games using the default resources.

Seems to me regardless if you charge for it or not, you created it with the trial version and as such you do not own the rights to publish it at all...

Indeed. From a copyright perspective, The trial EULA likely had stipulations about what can be done with it. Unfortunately accessing that EULA isn't possible outside of Windows, and it's likely Google Play people are using locked down hardware they can't install software onto just to see it.

Likewise.... and I mean this not-so-snarkily, there are NO LICENSE files nor are there COPYRIGHT NOTICES in the files provided by RPG MAKER MV, which makes it dubious that the rights are available and what version of MV it was made with.

Note the EULA says VX ACE, regardless of which product you are looking at.

D. User registrationLicensee shall promptly sign up and register required information as a user of the Software. Licensor will provide support, via on-line basis and only the scope designated by Licensor, to the Licensee who completed the registration process in accordance with Licensor’s direction. Such support shall be provided on “as-is” basis without any warranty in any manner.

E. Distribution rights

Only Licensee who properly completed the user registration may distribute its own Game;The Game that may be distributed by Licensee shall be legally created and shall not infringe third party’s rights, including, but not limited to, privacy, copyright, trademark, and/or any other intellectual property rights.

Licensee shall be fully responsible for the Game, its contents, including, but not limited to, character, story, scenario, plot, map, music, sound, design, name, the Game’s distribution method, and/or any other items created or added by Licensee.
That is the software part. The RTP has it's own license. Now remember that the RTP is integrated in MV. So you're looking at a combination of things until the website people actually update the information. The EULA in the help file is pretty much the same as above.

I will see if someone can look for your email. I believe some emails don't get through, especially from the likes of hotmail and similar. Remember the last 2 days have also been weekend.

I got response at last from RPG Maker staff:

"Thank you for contacting RPG Maker Customer Support!
 

You are not able to use the trial to distribute games Free or Commercial.

If you have any further questions or comments, please do not hesitate to contact us again."


Now I will buy the License and then republish the game, I hope I wont have more problems in google play after.

Hey, sorry. Random question. I want to upload a demo of my game. Its very unfinished, but I need feedback aswell as help from other RPG makers. First off, I want help with free movement and to finish my current ABS, its awkward and doens't feel very finished. So I need someone to test out my game. How / where can I upload the demo? I'm sort of new to this. I worked a lot with RPG maker 2000 and 2003 back when I was younger, but I just recently picked it up again. 

I'm using RPG maker MV

Wabron, please do not hijack someone else's unrelated thread with your own questions. Make your own thread.
