Using Pre-existing Sprites?

Post  scrag_10 on Tue Jun 02, 2009 3:20 am

What about using sprites from other games like Mega-Man, or Zelda, or any RPG.
Or ones that have Creative Commons license or something?

Either Character Sprites or Backgrounds or Items

I'm sorry, but we cannot use material that belong to other people or companies without their authorization.
As of Creative Commons or GNU licensed, it would be possible.

But the game is in it's very beginning right now. We don't have much stuff designed or coded, so it's not the time to start thinking about that.

Anyway, thanks for the concern
Admin.

I guess it's alright to make a similar game. Many games nowadays are clones of other ones. Although it would be better to have something original, getting inspiration from them is perfectly fine. What we can't do, as said by the admin, is making an exact copy, such as using sprites from games like zelda or pokemon.

Dammit... lol!

Just kidding. The "Admin" account was auto-created by forumotion as the account with full moderation powers. Since I don't want these powers, I don't use the account. But I can't delete it, or otherwise I won't be able to change stuff on the forum later.

So when it comes to topics regarding the FORUM, I reply with the admin because my real account's not supposed to have such powers.

NEVAH!!!! We have to make our OWN game, based on our OWN story with our OWN characters. Maybe we could include NPCs based on a particular character, like having a blond emo-kid called Cloud, or something like that, but I'd lose interest if I saw a game which has stolen characters.




And doing it is illegal xDDD









EDIT: take Final Fantasy I as an example.



I know it's in spanish xD, but a possible translation could be "Link is buried here", that's something completely legal, because they didn't mention which Link it was xD.

Not stolen characters.
Stolen sprites.

They could be recolored too. Also pretty sure it would be under "fair use" law since it is not a commercial product.

I think we could make npcs that look alike, just for fun.
Such as meeting a "mario-ish" npc in some bizarre city.

But that's a decision of the group, will depend on the maps, and should be decided later.

*someone use a Phoenix Down on me*

O_O!

I'm back! >>>XD BOAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA *bad ass' laught*

Well. I don't like the "stolen" idea. Since Kaoro's idea seems fun, the "doppelganger" (copy, clone in german) thing seems fun (Rick's Imagination: a char with a long katana, long grey hair, with a bad ass face like Sephiroth speaking with the player and kicking his/her ass just for fun).

Welcome back, man XD

Putting Sephiroth on the game? XD XD XD
Maybe he's a lv180 final boss or lv180 npc final boss (this one would be really nice).
