Re: My art journey~

I'm not a bonsai, I'm a beautiful oak tree! I didn't spot the "varying" ceiling height, sneaky mistake since the lines are right but the angle isn't! Btw you might want to give the new Krita tool a try ;) https://i.imgur.com/Bc2M7HM.png I didn't really think on how to light an unlit place. Theoreti...

Re: My art journey~

Hey King-sama, The background textures are starting to feel nice ^^ I felt something was odd with the perspective. I did some quick lines and you can see I find some minor inconsistencies in the vanishing points, but the main one is the leftmost door (line in red) which is not aligned with the other...

Re: itch.io changed its ToS

We again agree that the terms could be better limited (in particular better than refering to a vague undefined "Service"), and it's all good. I note you changed from: - contact them, they're responsive, it's no use conjecturing here to: - by sending 1 mail & tweet, plus a ping since they're not so r...

Re: itch.io changed its ToS

Yes, these terms are common. However, this doesn't make it good per se (e.g. harassment is pretty common too..). You can check sites such as https://tosdr.org or https://tosback.org/ for what people with legal background wrote about those. Note that GitHub's ToS is more restricted, in particular fol...

Re: itch.io changed its ToS

Well it's depressing to see creators pay so little attention to their rights. "they need some of the rights" but it's overreaching - "other people do it too" but said other people are rated F on e.g. tosdr.org - "related to the GDPR" while this has nothing to do with privacy - all of this already di...

Re: itch.io changed its ToS

OK, as I said I messaged privately with @mikolajspy (who agrees itch.io may well abuse this unbalanced contract but thinks we are powerless against this) and @Imperf3kt (who read the wrong ToS). If you agree with them, considering they agreed with me :P (btw I'd appreciate it if you guys confirmed h...

Re: itch.io changed its ToS

Sent a couple PMs directly re:pure-legalese to offload the thread a bit.

EDIT: some people read the wrong ToS which caused confusion.
Looks like we all agree on the issue, just not on what to do with it.

Re: itch.io changed its ToS

Hmm, let's recap: - itch.io does need a license grant from us for hosting our games. I think we agree on that. - Its terms are now broad/overreaching, and might be used for evil purposes in the future. In think we agree on that too. - So it would be best if itch.io made their terms of service more b...

Re: itch.io changed its ToS

@mikolajspy I think there's a misunderstanding. (gosh, was I so unclear somehow, that you believed I confused basic copyright concepts?) Indeed RenPy's license per-se is so permissive that you don't really care about itch's new terms. However this doesn't apply to e.g. Unity, whose license is far le...

Re: itch.io changed its ToS

@Imperf3kt I believe that's the intent, however it's like a friend asking for a blank check when all they need is to borrow a couple bucks. @mikolajspy I say one cannot grants rights on something one don't have the copyright for - what are you talking about? :) Aside from that, no answer from itch.i...

Re: itch.io changed its ToS

I sent a mail to support@itch.io - I never could have explained anything in 140 chars anyway ;) Also pointed that we can't give such rights to e.g. RenPy or CC-* songs we use in our games. All this reminds me of a similar issue with GitHub changing their ToS about 1 year ago. I think they backpedale...

Re: itch.io changed its ToS

Those services are decidedly not liking me: I registered a twitter account to try and contact itch - and while I was waiting for the the confirmation mail to arrive, Twitter locked my account. I literally didn't do anything and they locked it for "suspicious activity" - so apparently waiting for the...
