The Legality of making/selling a fighter maker game in the US


#1

I have drawn 8(maybe 12) characters sprites for a fighting game I am making. Is it legal to buy a Japanese game engine(fighter maker 2nd round) make a game with it and sell it in america/europe.

The engine is untranslated and not pirated. I am not familiar with thier ToS or end user agreement.

From what I learned, the japanese version of FM2nd you can use for commercial use, but not the english. I’ll see if I can post the link about it.


#3

Oh ok. So if I use the japanese version its ok to sell?


#4

Yeah. The English verison is an unofficial fan translated version, so you can’t profit off it.

Can you sell Game Created with Fighter Maker ?

here’s a link to the whole discussion.

Buy the japanese version.

compile the translated version on the japanese version.

Then you can sell it.
