As I mentioned earlier in the thread, if you were to start the game with MV but then not use it, you would have to remove the RPG Maker assets (eg images,music and sounds) because your license to use those assets is with RPG Maker, not an alternative game engine or "maker" program. Simply asking "How much do I need to use" is suggestive of trying to fulfill the licence without using the software and it's assets for it's intended purpose. People* ask how to work around the license because they feel the license doesn't apply to them anyway. This is why that person somewhere else on the forum got denied from using the RPG Maker trial version to publish an Android game on Google Play.The bold part isn't necessarily right. My game, for example, would fall under your "C" item, but it can still be opened, modified and played from RPG Maker.
Anyway, even if my game were to be approved by sending a message asking for permission, I decided to stop working with RPG Maker. It's just not worth it to have to deal with this kind of thing. It's not the first I've had to worry about RM's license and I never really had similar problems with any other engine I worked with, so I decided to move on.
* I used to work somewhere where people asked weasel questions all the time, and am not suggesting this was the intent of posters in this thread. People tend to dance around the rules until they are called on it, and then feign ignorance because they see other people getting away with it, unaware that nobody is getting away with it. It's in their head that they are being singled out.
