    @Hudell thank you for your work Hudell, many users here are concerned about the plugin being stolen work as well, so this should satisfy their demand.


    As for Kaus's plugin, I honestly think that is his own work, but if people aren't sure, go switch it out with Hudell's plugin that he's creating.

    for the plugin it's his original works 


    althouhg for people who wonder why it's have weird way's to do compatibilities stuff it's  a old RM XP and VX behavior where's the concept of alias was not so much used due how much the method was bad written or WAY to much long for being efficient...


    the concept consist of adding method names when's the script or plugin is present for avoid any incompatibilities.


    OR NEITHER Kaus knew how to properly alias methods in JS.


    @Victor Sant and @Yanfly are familiar of those methods since they are working with RM since the XP era.

    This is really bad, to any community. But I think that the best thing we can do is use this as learning. buy some material without thinking twice is something that cannot be done. is best expect the feedback of more people about the material/pack of something, is good to take precautions before buy online.

    Considering the subscription list was enormously long and the user was listed as being around since 2014, we sort of were lulled into a certain sense of security.

    That's why I only buy validated products from Degica via the rmweb store. Buying from a non established source is like buying a Rovex (and not a Rolex) from a random dude selling watches in the subway. There's 99%'chances you'll be scammed.


    I'm happy I work on a project using PV tiles, would I have done an RTP/chibi one, maybe I would have used is so called "expansion".

    I kind of understand where you are coming from but still...


    And I'm not bashing your opinion. as I respect everyone's opinions but, I'm getting a vibe from this topic and what have you that buying/using community made resources is generally safe, even if they aren't in the RPG Maker Store.


    Just because one guy managed to pull of such a scam twice shouldn't sully the reputation of the rest of the community who are doing honest work.


    Your analogy works best for those kinds of shady dealings like the ones in your example.


    But I just can't believe that this is a normal occurrence.  I think we have a pretty honest community here.

    There will always be a few bad apples. There have been a few incidents of dishonesty over the years, but it fails to eclipse the generosity of a myriad of talented creators. Most of the resources on this site are perfectly safe and crafted with care.  And, I wouldn't dare try to imagine our community without our content creators. However, it's completely healthy to express some skepticism; even more so when your money is getting involved. There are a lot of dodgy pages out there that are simply rounding up artwork and dumping them into compilations and zips without any trace of credits or leading back to their direct original source. Or, worse!


    If anyone is ever suspect of a resource or a site, even just a little; ask. Many of the members here are extremely savvy with the library of community-made resources.

    Was not implying that people on this community were not reliable, and indeed there are great people making community resources or even taking commissions.


    I buy from Degica as it's safe and to also support them.


    they don't do weird PayPal tricks like personal or gifts payment. That's a telltale of doing dodgy stuff.

    I just realized that the "sample fog file" he shared on his plugin thread is from XP's RTP.

    And That's Why we are questioning if his other resources have been heavily Edited.


    Btw Orange I forgot to say Thank you for taking time out of your life to make a Overlay Plugin that can use the same Notetags as Kaus

    Well, I believe it's to get around some of the stuff that PayPal does when it comes to charges and wait times. Not an inherently dodgy sign in and of itself - people don't like waiting and losing money to big corporations, and marking as personal or gift is an easy way to get around that, but it does open the payer up to being scammed. Only do it if you trust the person in question, but keep in mind that by itself it isn't a sign of wrongdoings on the askers part.

    Man and I literally just got out of talking to Kaus about this. I thought my spriter was just being frugal when she advised me against subscribing.


    Turns out I hired a mystical prophet.


    But hey, less spending for me. Good to know this is out in the open now.

    I needed a demo project with his plugin working, to test compatibility. I couldn't make his fog system work at all.


    Edit: got it working by downgrading MV. Looks like it's not compatible with 1.2

    Ahhh, I see. I only used a portion of the plugin, and hadn't tried the fog part yet. Do you still need a demo project? I can throw something together.


    Edit: I should note that I only have 1.2.

    Well, first version of the plugin is here.


    If anybody finds a bug or something running different from Kaus plugin, let me know. I'll make a thread for it when I get back from work tomorrow.

    So pretty much it will function like Kaus's? I know that his plug in required a second plugin to work. Called KSU ParallaxSmoothing.


    But pretty just swap out plugins and nothing else?
