Hello there, as the title states I want to to ask if it is allowed for me to use and modify assets from an older rpg-maker version (rm2k3 to be precisely) in my RMMV-Project while still keeping everything legal?
I am in an early develeopment stage with my project but somewhere I have the little hope that I can some day go commercial with it, so I want to be very careful about rights and licences right from the start.

I own rm2k3 on Steam by the way.

any maker-resource that you legally own can be used in any maker that you also legally own, but converting them is your own task, that is not always possible without a lot of work depending on what exactly you want.

using or using edits of them are allowed as long you legally own the RM from that version.
if you dont have VXAce, but want it resources or edits of them, its not allowed,
if you have a license of VXAce, than you are allowed.

(VXAce is only an example)

Please do not buy games from g2a.com. The sellers have total power over you. The website has many scam sellers. It looks cheap, but the key code didn't work.
A while back I was having fun making my own custom tiles, then I hit carpet... why is it so difficult!? Lol.

I know someday I'll start working on this...

I'm so happy that I got Steam achievements to work in my game, thanks in large part to the posts by other RPG Maker devs on this issue!
