This topic is for creators to announce if their creations are open source or what
part's of it (sprites, codes, etc) can be freely used be other users and/or creators.

for example :

by Mr. X (url *):
xxxx (only sprites)

by Mr. Y
yyyy (only coding)

* : where to get the character or who you should ask to have it if the char is unavailable

Creators can add themselves to this list by replying to this thread stating what they want to be open source of their creations.

YOU CAN ONLY USE THIS OPEN SOURCE STUFF IF YOU CREDIT THE ORIGINAL CREATORS.

You are encouraged to try and contact creators anyway, as many would surely like to know what is being made in part thanks to some of their work.

You are also encouraged to allow others to use at least a part of what you've created thanks to the things you use from this list, so others may benefit in the same way that you have.

OOhkaayy... I have some gripes about this.

1. Will Noobs even bother looking here before starting their own creations?

2. Will they even give us credit for the work?

3. I don't think many mugen creators will use this, IMO, considering they put a lot of work into their creations and they want to be given the credit for their mugen work.

BTW, KFM is already open source, since it was made by Elecbyte, and is a base for all mugen characters.

Join the list and help stop the paranoia! ;P


Edit: can someone confirm or deny if TESTP's old creations were allowed to be freely used? Even if they no longer have a site, somebody out there is bound to have all or some of their stuff, so it could still be requested...

mary (kof99 i think) by testp is free to use but unavailable to download.
I have this mary btw.

new Mouser characters are free to use as we can see in the readme :
"Reproduction and alteration can be performed freely."
this include Keith and Rasputin available here (http://mouser.mgbr.net/)

Athena 2k2 sff (sff only) can by use with credit obviously because there is no edited sprites (http://queens.ekzay.org/cutemugen/)

Officially unofficially my sff's and snd's are "open source".  The rest however, will not be.  Considering I haven't physically released anything since 2 years ago, this doesn't matter at this point.

SFZ Guy (only sprites) author Messatsu
SFZ Ken (only sprites) author Messatsu
SvC Sagat (only sprites and sounds) author Messatsu (after the Dev sanction)

It is likely you would have to contact this fellow via PM.

Edit: Conformed to the standard since I just read the first post. :P

Regardless of rather they say "open source" for their coding or not I think it's still a good idea to email the original creator.

Personally if I was a creator offering this (I'm not btw)I'd like to know who was doing what with my work.

Also some creators may wish to dl your work to see if it does in fact advance or detract from their own.

I don't think people should be putting other people's names on this list without the original author knowing about it.  -_-

Fare thee well

The only thing I ask other people to mention is that the AI activation code that is used was first developed by Kamek (or at least keep the mention in the cns, as I do). Otherwise, one can take those, change the creator name in DEF file, make another readme.txt and release them as their own.

Have fun.

Absolutely (well, almost) everything from me, past, present, and future, is free to use however the heck you want to.  Credit is certainly appreciated, but not at all required.
Exceptions:
-I make no claims about having the right to allow the use of the intellectual property of the game companies I've ripped sprites, music, or designs from.  But, I'm not about to disallow it either; I'll leave that up to them to decide about and enforce.
-My AI activation code is largely based on various other people's code (albeit with rather heavy modification).  My version of the code is free to use, but credit to those people should be given unless they've specified otherwise.
-Use of Sffextract is governed by the terms and conditions as specified in the GNU General Public License, a copy of which is distributed along with Sffextract.  (If I release any other software in the future, it'll be either the same, or perhaps just public domain.)



As for T.E.S.T.P, this is an excerpt from the text file that came with their U.N.I.T.E.D. release 8:

Quote
Wanna put these charas in your game? Wanna use the
sprites or sounds? Sure, go ahead! We don't really
mind if you wanna rip our characters apart and
figure out how some things are done, as long as it
means you can use it to improve your own characters.
Enjoy!

-TESTP

So I guess that covers pretty much all their stuff, except possibly their Yuri.  I don't think I have her, but I'd be surprised if the same policy didn't apply.
Still quite busy.

(Yes, I intend to deal with that stuff eventually, but kinda can't just yet, sorry. :/ )

Nothing is mentioned in Ryuri's documentation about this, but I think it's safe to assume that the "our characters" bit in the UNITED pack also covers her.

So the characters are:

Blue Mary (everything), author TESTP
Guile (everything), author TESTP
Shinobu (everything), author TESTP
Xia Hou Dun (everything), author TESTP
Yuri C-Type/Ryuri (everything), author TESTP

Should we assume the same applies to their stages?...

Sinasta asked him for permission to use his effect sprites along with me as well.  So I guess he grants everone permission to use his effect sprites (as in hit sparks and super backgrounds) as long as you give him credit as stated above by Nunor.

Quote:

Since the effect picture of my character is a free material, use freely.

Since most is reconstruction from the existing fighting game,
there is no right which takes out permission to me.

Then, please do your best in character creation.

MaJiTa made available several sprite sheets of DBZ characters at the ZGTeam site:

http://www.zgteam.com/ - look for the "Sprite Sheets" link in the manu to the left, under the "Multimedia" category - you will then find a list of characters organized by game of origin, each link corresponding to a different sprite sheet (single image with most/all sprites the character uses, so you still have to align them in the SFF).

That's what Chottokomaru says (on the forum in the link given by DJ-VAN), so I guess it includes everyone, not only 1 guy as BJ says.
