Highly Questionable Things
I was taking a stroll around the internet when I stumbled upon this: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/pikointeractive/super-4-in-1-multicart-for-the-snes/description
If you take a look at the page in the link, you might notice something familiar. That’s right, it’s one of the assets I borrowed from K.Hmix’s “Character Something or Other Machine” (キャラクターなんとか機). The assets are, according to the author, free for commercial use and such. Hence why I can redistribute them and why Piko Interactive can as well. Now, about the image, what I noticed that was particular to this image, is its colors. It’s the default palette color for the original Anime Character Creator that I released on 2009. It’s different from K.Hmix’s default. That’s why I recognized it. Whatever the case, I was disappointed that they failed to mention what software was used to generate the image. I’m not saying I’m holding a grudge or anything like that, just that when I use or take things, I like to give credit where credit is due. It’s the both the fair thing and the right thing.
So if you ever decide to use something in a commercial fashion like shown above, give credit to anything you used. We programmers, artists, etc, like credit. We may act like we don’t, but we most definitely do. Things like that actually would have driven me to further development if I had known sooner. I suppose though, things as they are, it’s a little too late.
