Forum Help
 
where would be the best place to post about SRB2 maps being used in another game? because i would like to ask if its ok to use the maps with different textures

I think you should post them here, Since it's related to SRB2 Regardless of the game.

MichaelTheKitten 06-21-2017 01:16 PM

ah, its just that i am asking if i can use the srb2 Maps without there orignal textures, so like use the same map but with different textures

MichaelTheKitten 06-25-2017 07:37 AM

if anyone wonders what i mean then: http://i.imgur.com/kcqhbEn.png i am asking if this would be allowed

Modified vanilla maps are allowed just as long there's effort put into them. And did you took the textures from SRB2 Heroes? While I like the look of it, I think you should ask and/or give credit before/after you do.

no, they are ripped from the orignal sonic heroes

Level layout needs to be changed. Im pretty sure you cannot get away with just different textures

For Sonic Robo Blast 2, or, as MichaelTheKitten is asking about, for porting the level to a completely different engine?

MichaelTheKitten 06-25-2017 01:40 PM

well the only thing i can say is that its the old GFZ

I think the idea is, Michael, that if you're making this a mod for SRB2, you'll have to change the actual map structure yourself in order to give it substantial enough value for it to be placed in releases. If you're making this a mod for a different game, you should ask the person who originally made the Green Flower Zone map for permission to use their work.

its not a mod, its my own sonic engine, i'm just asking if i can use it. the engine is gonna be non-commercial

Any use of SRB2's original assets outside of SRB2 requires permission from the original author of those assets, or from the dev team itself. This doesn't apply to the code as it is licensed under GPL v2, nor to any assets ripped from other games as we don't own that.

We generally don't give permission for our maps to be used in other projects. If it's just an example map it might be okay, but I'm not the one who can say for certain. (And you could do a lot better for engine example maps than GFZ1 anyway.)

MichaelTheKitten 06-25-2017 03:40 PM

well it was one of the first maps i could think of to include since, i was planning on adding "ALL" sonic 3D games
