Um... idk if my browser's acting up or if Crescent Moon Arepeggio's site is down. I can't seem to access it.

EDIT Oh, it was just down for a second. My bad.

I've updated timelessberry's terms per @hero_buddy 's request. They now allow commercial usage to one-man-team/indie developers.

I think Kuremente has done some major changes on their terms. Could they be translated again? I checked the terms in Google translate and there seems to be something about unsupported scripts, so I'm not sure if it's 'safe'.

There's nothing inherently unsafe about unsupported scripts. It just might be harder to use if you run into trouble.
I've updated the terms as they did make some changes to their commercial usage terms, as well as distributing edits.

I'll get to the other terms soon. Sorry for the long wait, work's been very busy lately.

You need to own VX or VXAce to use these and cannot use them outside the RM engines.

Hi, it seems a few months ago there is a change in the permission for "Presence of Music"
http://www.presence-of-music.com/home.html
Especially in this part
http://www.presence-of-music.com/notice4.html

Google translate is a bit rough, so I am curious about the part where it translates to :

"Persons who downloaded from the site when they were released as free material and have already used for commercial use
Persons who downloaded from the site when they were released as free materials and plan to use them in the future
In this case, there is no need to purchase again (* 1)"

Does that mean if I already downloaded the music prior to the new policy (1st June 2019) I can still use them commercially without a fee?
(also: how can the person check?)

And this last part:
"As a result of this change, for non-commercial use, only paid music will be used as free material as before.
We will make it available for download, so please use it."

Since the author also mentioned that "(Some songs that are currently released as free material are also scheduled to be sold for a fee.)" - does this means that the site music is no longer viable for commercial usage? (or is it still useable for unsold materials yet? (there is an excel file in one of the update regarding which ones are on sale))

This is all google translate so there might be misunderstanding.

Sure, I'll ask. Just an FYI, Bougainvillea doesn't want you to link to the materials directly, so if you could change your post to "mapchip 3", "character05" and all that would be awesome ^^
By the way, I asked if it was okay to chop up tilesets for doodads (since the editing policy seemed ambiguous), and got a 'yes'.

Hello!My name is Shigekichi(webmaster of "BOUGAINVILLEA")
I am sorry for replying late.

You can use my resources for Yanfly doodads plugin.
I will be happy if my resources can be of any help:)

It seems both Cacaosoft and Petitrare are down. Anyone saved their stuff?

@Parallax Panda Yeah, that site had been down for a while, though still accessible through the wayback machine. Thanks @tale for the new link. I've edited my posts with it.
@TakeHomeTheCup It's not working for me either. Might be temporary down, we'll have to wait and see.

It's come to my attention that Moon Wind has added their own English terms. I've adjusted my post to reflect that.

Sorry, for the late reply. I'm not sure how I missed this post :kaoswt2:
So the thing that has changed are the terms when it comes to commercial usage. It's still allowed, but some songs (not all) have become paid if you want to use them commercially. You are exempt from paying a fee if you downloaded them when they were still free.

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:
