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.

Firefox pointed me to a little inspiration: https://www.atlasobscura.com/articles/writers-maps

So, I shared. :D

Now that I made this "What the MZ RTP is missing" spreadsheet it's itching me to fill some the gaps D:
Aaaaand I completely forgot about the RMMV Chicken Rave my brother decided to implement in a parody of my VERY FIRST UNFINISHED project. We could not escape the chicken rave... The chickens would block the ladder...
I love how I can look up a problem I'm having with my game, find a post from like six years ago that addresses the issue, and the solution provided still works in RPG Maker.
It's times like those that my life feels really easy XD
