One thing that is key for me in visual novels is good quality sound and music. I was wondering, since on every music pack is a big "USE IT ONLY FOR RPG/IG MAKER GAMES!", if we are able to use the purchased music packs for visual novel maker?

Of course I can´t answer this 100% correctly, but I would wager that you can. VN maker is from the same company and the rights should be the same. The music pack rights will probably be updated to include the VN maker as well! But we have to aee what they say...

@Canini that is not automatic, it depends on the exact licencing conditions contracted to the various artists.


@mardin it is likely that they will give a similar licence compared to the RPG-Makers, but that is not guaranteed - you'll have to wait for an official answer to that.


And since they pushed the release date back I doubt that anyone is in a hurry to answer that question...

The using of RPG Maker Resources like music and graphics would be cool that's for sure. But probably that‘s also up to the artist and you really couldn't blame them when they refuse to give their permission for that. Well, let's wait and see (and hope). :)

Stay on the safe side: you cannot use RPG Maker's RTP music in VNM.


You can use the store bought music if you have a non-RM license for it. But you should check the license that came with it.

I never wanted to use the RTP music, I was only talking about the music you can purchase here in the shop. :)


I followed your advice and looked into the licences. Gotta admit, it does not look good for the ones like me who want to use the music for VN maker. In one of my purchased music packs I found: "The music included in the Product (the "Resource Pack") may be used with any of ENTERBRAIN's game development software (include all related titles of "RPG MAKER Series" or "our products") that retains the Company's rights."


So, is this an Enterbrain related game development software or not?

Ah, that's more definitive.  No, it's not being developed by Enterbrain.  Don't be afraid to ask about the specific music pack though, I think I remember one of them was supposed to have a more expansive licence than it did and there was some troubles getting it updated in the files and I don't remember if it got resolved.  I also don't remember what one it was.

Working on my first ideas for a tileset... I really don't know if anyone would like or even want my style.

Plus-size sprite continues! Front and back views done, or at least mostly there depending on if there's any more work you all think she needs. Once I get her done I can get working on her masculine counterpart:
