    I bought the DLC---> ""Exclusive DLC Pack (BTA tier)""" for RPG Maker Ace a few years back at the website "Humble Bundle".

    There is a MP3 song in it I must use in my project....BUT there is no read file stating anything about Who to give credit to....So do I give credit to anyone???

    The only thing in the folder other then the resources is-->

    1)
    .DS_Store
    which says "DS_Store File" but I can't find a way to open it.

    2)
    RPG Maker VX Ace Install Instructions
    Which is a Text document but still says nothing of giving credit to.

    I have something called "Exclusive DLC Pack" as well, but mine has several different folders, all with read-me files.
    What's the name of the song you want to use? That might tell us more.

    1) that is a mac-based file used to determine file properties on MacOS, you can ignore it on windows
    2) there were several humble bundles where such bonus resources were given, so we'll need more data to determine which TOS apply.

    1) It was an RPG MAKER ACE DLC
    2) Pack or rare file is named ""newDLCpack_bta""
    3) The extract folder is ""Exclusive DLC Pack (BTA tier)""
    4) The folder that holds the song is ""Rebel Rapture Music Pack""
    5) The name of the song is ""Armies Advance""
    (don't get me wrong it's not that I didn't want to mention the song...It's just I'd rather not mention too much of what's is in the project)

    That pack is composed by Murray Atkinson

    I would credit the pack by name, rather than list out every individual track that you might use from it.

    ok so even though it doesn't have a read file that tells who the credit goes to...since the song does have a name to the side of it that would be the person to give credit to. :thumbsup-right:

    In this case the credit would go to Murray Atkinson

    There should be a Read Me file in there. When I go to the folder of Rebel Rapture Music Pack, I get two folders (MP3 & OGGs) and a read me file.

    Anyway, this is what my read-me file says on how to credit:

    As I said above there were several different pack in humble bundle, and they sometimes had different TOS.
    That is because there was a single case where the usual RM-only restriction was waived for reasons, and they rewrote the EULA for that set of packs.
    And you didn't give enough info to identify from which of those packages (they had partially the same content) your files come.

    I just checked my humble bundle account and they only called it
    Humble Bundle New DLC Pack
    But it is no longer listed in the site only in my account

    In this link it shows a picture of a bundle pack with the DLC I have....it's at the button row in the middle
