I'm looking some way to contact the authors of these sites:

http://ameblo.jp/makapri/entry-11164326313.html

http://popodot.web.fc2.com/index.html

http://cocodoco.chu.jp/main/game.html

http://agustofwind.web.fc2.com

http://eurs.blog65.fc2.com/blog-category-1.html

With some luck from google translator I was able to translate the japanese. All the sites have terms of use wich indicates that using them in commercial games is approved but must be credited properly.

CORRECT ME IF I'M WRONG but for now, I'm trusting google.

I think you will need to hire a Japanese translator, my friend.

Kingdom Rise and fall:

Ahh, you said you wanted to contact them....

I cannot find Popodot's statement that commercial is okay, myself.

Maybe I am missing it?

I am looking here:

OK

 

加工なんでもOK!

RPGツクール以外のゲームでもOK!

R-18のゲームでもOK!

Translates to: 

OK

 

OK anything processing!

It is OK in games other than RPG Maker!

OK in the game of R-18!

 

It a bit off yeah, but from now I assume it's ok. Hopefully OK translates OK in every language, lol. Althou I have tried to reach the author also and have "secondary" material available if the commercial use is not prohibited.

 

And contact, yes, just to be 100% sure.

Wow crazy stuff, I think the translator can suffice... I don't know if you can afford it, but even still it would probably be best to hire or find someone who can actually read it cleanly. Don't wanna run into trouble overseas!

Popodot doesn't say it's allowed (or not) for commercial use. It's no where really mentioned. Same with A Gust of Wind.

Cocodoco, Closet and makpri allow commercial use. Credit is required for all, but makpri asks you either comment or send them a mail when you use their materials (this rule seems to also be when you use their resources in non-commercial games).

Legally, you are also only allowed to use Closet's materials, if you own VX.

Thanks for verifying this! Of course giving Credits should be self-explanatory. Been trying to message Gust of Wind and Popodot authors with no luck :/

You could comment on A Gust of Wind's blog and hope they'll reply through there. And grandma Deb posted Popodot's e-mail.

This is the real terms of use page.

Unless a work is tagged as Original, since he's editing/using First Seed Material, you must also abide with their Terms of Use (FSM's).

You are allowed to modify the work, but give credit and link to the site.

If you redistribute it without modification, you're not allowed to claim it as your own and might as well just link to the site.

You can't use it for Shareware (so I'm guessing no commercial work).

You can't use it for R-18.

You can't use it outside of RPG Maker.

Seems like he's asking that you post in the bulletin board+screenshot when using their work.

Okay lemme try.
 
Since some materials are a modification of RPG Maker VX materials, they're for RPG Maker VX only.
If you want to use it on another maker, you need to own RPG Maker VX to use them.
There are original facesets, so you can use them on any RM or outside of RM.

(I honestly don't understand the last bit about as described. I'm guessing it's about shared copyrights with RM and FSM, feel free to correct me)

I probably means not to share an edited image without his/her consent.

You'd also want to confirm if you are asking about Inquisitor's tiles made for XP, or Tioluko's own reformat revsion for VX. If Inquisitor doesn't allow commercial use, that would apply to both XP and VX, but if he does allow commercial use, you'd then need to check with Tioluko for VX since some tiles in the VX revision aren't Inquisitor's.

http://www.rpg-palace.com/categories/game-maker-s-guild/resource-discussion/inquisitor-tilesets-vx

Nice work but there seems to be a lot of tiles in there that aren't mine?
I see you've made some edits of the graphics, for the opening or doors and dim lanterns for example. I've noted that for some reason you'd added in a lot of extra colours, so obviously you didn't pixel them but they ework at any rate. The chests and cupboard door opening characterset alone has a whopping 1192 colours on it. 


Anyway, nice job!

Just imagine, MZ got released while still on summer sale and they decided to discount their game. lol.
Now that I found an accessible composing software, all the melodies that only lived inside my head so far can come to life. I LOVE this.

I'm sorry about my mistake of not messaging you about posting in Games in Development Rules and Guidelines. I'm still new on this forum but using RPG Maker for 3 years. Well it is in English language. Well, I just want to explained about the game and show them the demo. I promised, there is no inappropriate contain because I don't like that. What should I do?
Magic numbers are the devil.
So I was explaining to someone today that Magic (the Gathering) has advertised itself as a Trading Card Game (TCG) and a Collectable Card Game (CCG), but never a playing card game. Playing cards are what they use for stuff like Poker or Black Jack. So by playing Magic with the cards, they were in fact doing it wrong, and me trading the cards is a correct usage. :popcorn:
