That's interesting... I wonder when someone will take all those PKMN games down for ripped graphics...
The difference is Euphony has actually come here to defend himself.
I gotta admit, I do agree with you on rips, and iiif they weren't so prolific something should be done. Indeed any game that uses rips and doesn't credit should go at the very least.
I agree it's hypocritical. Maybe it's something the staff need to discuss.
I think, at the very least, the rule should be that a disclaimer should be added saying:
This game uses graphics created by [x company / y person]. I am using them because [insert silly reason here]. If they want me to stop using them they need only ask and I will do so. Apologies for any inconvenience.
I think we're going off topic here though - and I will bring this up in the staff forum instead where we can discuss it properly.
In the mean time shiwt we won't pursue any rules on you, but it's something to keep in mind. Sorry.
Just saying though... and for what it's worth, I'm impressed how your map generator's coming along :) Would be cool to see the 'source maps', which I assume is the individual houses?
It's probably easy to see a sort of breakup into four scenes, what with the autotiles etc, these are the mapletts. Other things (trees, other details) are added through randomly placing events, and then the actual exits are fixed events.
