Thank you @Archeia for Linking me to this Topic from Twitter.



Is there any way we can get all the crediting information? I was hoping to test run them on small games to help my skill in solo development.


If none is available though I will delete the tile-set ASAP, RIP to Kaus or Hanzo or whatever he goes by to be honest.


His Overlay Plug-in looked Really decent... Wonder if that was jacked from someone too?

A way would be himself cooperating here, he will know best, which artists have to be credited (or asked for permission).

I rather doubt he will cooperate, considering he was caught being a fricking thief- and more, defrauding people since he charged money. He's never going to poke his miserable face here again.


Well, considering my little nest egg for purchasing tilesets is fricking gone- can anyone recommend an affordable set of a good size, somewhere?


Somehwere in every game I make from now on, there's going to be a slime with Kaus' name on it.

That's upsetting, thanks for letting us know. That's really unfortunate, considering I was glad to pay for something I thought was really made by this person. And of course, no refund possible considering the way this person asked us to pay. 


And now I have to redo a few maps, great.

I admit, I feel a bit robbed. I doubt I'll be able to get a refund as I payed in early May.

Given how it's been said he was requesting people pay, you likely won't see a refund at all. I probably shouldn't ask... But how much was he asking for this hack job of tiles?

@DragonVine


People Like Kaus, They won't give refunds sadly.


It's people like him that sometimes makes trusting pay first artists Really Hard!


Was any of his other work besides the Tilesets also Stolen? if so How do we ascertain the true works from the stolen.


MOST Important topic is... Who exactly do we credit for the actual art. He really Should've just told the admins when @Celianna Figured out some art from the Tile-set was Stolen.


I would've really loved to use these for small non-commercial games but damn man... this is just nuts.

We don't credit anyone because we don't use it.


Exactly. You don't get to take art from someone (or use something that someone else made with said stolen art) and say "no, it's okay, we credited everybody." It's like robbing a bank and saying "no, it's cool, we called up the bank's customers and told them we have their money." In either case, you're still getting a legal beatdown.

Especially since these aren't stolen from just freelance RPGM artists, these are from actual gaming companies. Many of his stuff was probably from professional commercial games.

Yeah... those are shark/eel-infested waters. Don't jump in, guys.

Well, isn't this a nice thing to wake up to? Really sucks for the people who have to start all over just because of his dishonesty - I'm just glad I only made a map or two before finding out...

You should report it to Paypal and ask him for a refund immediately </3

I didn't lose money from this (the one time that having no online money was a good thing). Remaking all the maps will take up a lot of time, though.

@terrorchanIt's just one of those things I guess, sometimes these things happen. It sucks, but much better to find out now than when I'm at late stage development or worse yet, before I launch the game. So I'm grateful Celianna found out about this now and has let us all know. I'll try to get a refund but it's more the time that I won't get back which is more disappointing :/


But yeah, heart goes out to others that are in the same position :/

Who would think putting a power button on a side of a laptop is a good thing? You want to move the laptop and you suddenly press the button.
The second draft of my script is almost done, and I don't think I'm going to write a third draft. I'll make changes to dialogue here and there, but I'm happy with the series of events the way they are.
How you feel about font and dialogue box changing for every main character while the minor cast and regular npc get their own styles? Too much?
Just found an obviously custom effect (i.e. edited by me) in my resources>sounds folder called "rip jaw off". Dear Lord what is wrong with me as a person that at some point I needed a sound *specifically* for THAT??
(...rhetorical question.)
