I some how found that the older VX/VXA era of BGM and SE's file sounds better then MV's vanillia, could we pull some of the file out or redirect MV to use these files without breaking the copyright laws?

Sinces that they are all Enterbrain/Kadokawa create and free to download stuff?

Someone can correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe you would need to have a licensed version of every RPG Maker you plan to utilize to be able to legally bring assets and sounds over from VX/ VX Ace to MV.

I'm not too sure on being able to make a commercial game using said assets though.

As always, you can use the RTP from any maker you legally own in any other maker you legally own.


However, in the case of MV there are two additional points you need to keep in mind:


1) MV can't encrypt the game, that means at the moment you're not allowed to use shop resources for Ace (which require encryption from their licence) in MV.


Degica tries to solve that licence problem, but until they provide a solution you can't use those older paid resources for pre-MV makers in MV.


2) In the case of RTP/free resources, you still need to convert them to the formats of MV. This requires work and often represents a quality loss because of the resize factor 1.5.

It does sometimes get a little embarrassing that I often come here to ask for help with something and seldom have anything to actually show for it. If there is one thing though I can commend myself for, it's for sticking with an idea I've been tinkering with for this long now and gradually making headways. Even though I've been reserved about my progress, I can say I'm farther now than where I initially started.
I'm gonna put my project on pause for a tiny bit so I can explore the engine outside of it... Winging it can only get you so far LMFAO
Have seen some of my favorite people here posting and helping others with questions today -- love to see it!
Haven't been on here actively in awhile, project is going strong my biggest issue is the STORY, i'm refining the plot and learning so much i decided to take a writers class to improve even more but the programming and functionality of the game is stepping up nicely!
