    What "stuff" do you mean? Games? Wouldn't that be in the EULA?

    VNM is not yet released, so no one can answer your question.
    After it's release, that info will be found in its EULA.

    Hi, after I read the EULA, I need clarifications pertaining the clause of distribution.

    It says "Only Licensee who properly completed the user registration may distribute its own Game, which includes appropriate crediting and copyright information."

    There's no problem about the user registration part, but I went and checked the EULA of VXAce, and found out the latter part isn't in it.
    So I went on and checked the Japanese EULA of ツクールシリーズ and found the exact same clause. (The EULA of RMMV disappeared from this site for some time now)

    My question is, I'm pretty sure this means if we want to distribute games made with VNM, we have to put something like Made with Visual Novel Maker(TM) in the game's read me or copyright declaration document. Correct?

    Thank you.

    Since I haven't got a reply yet, I might as well add another question here.

    Can assets from "恋愛シミュレーションツクール" and "恋愛シミュレーションツクール2" be used in VNM?
    Since I own both and I know assets from these two can be used in RPG Maker series, can we also use them in VNM now that VNM collaborated with KADOKAWA?

    Thank you.

    If you look in frequently asked questions it states you can use all rpgmaker resources in vn maker and vice versa.

    I asked about tiles recently as well for my own project and was told it was fine. ( I’m not sure what your actually looking for confirmation of but I assume it’s a resource!)

    I would also assume you’d credit the engine and whoever made the engine. It would make sense.
