It went to the extreme that as soon as I decided to use something else and not BYOND, interest in the game sky rocketed, and I was getting offers from a wide variety of people all offering to help with the project however they could.
Why does this not sound like a believable story.
The point is BYOND has a bad word of mouth with both skilled artists and serious programmers. If your fine with that: fine. I'm not.
the quality of pixel art in these games are horrible and the gameplay isn't really top notch either.
Jeff: I have no idea what Elk does or doesn't do. I do know that BYOND could do without people that spam the scoreboards of game's with I-think-I'm-funny scores.
Here's what I still don't get: why would they be so upset if their artwork is stolen?
- it's a possibility which every pixel artist will always have to face no matter where you go or what you do
- it's very easy to prove that you're the original creator
- when others take your work and try to put it into their own game, it's not feasible to steal ALL of your artwork (for several reasons), so it looks poor and mismatched-- they gain nothing from stealing your artwork
- if anything, it's flattery that they like your artwork so much that they'd like to use it themselves (regardless of their immature methods)
I don't see how they get negatively impacted by such "theft" other than a sore butt.
Because we dont like other people claiming our stuff. its as simple as that. We dont spend hours drawing something for some kid to come and steal it, spread it and say he did it.
You dont have to get it, but dont act like its no big deal to have your work stolen.
And yeah, people certainly DO steal peoples entire portfolios if they can. What do you think they use the rsc extractors for?
What i dont get is, why is it you think we should just say nothing,or not care, or not be upset when this kind of thing happens, just because its a possibility?
Theres plenty of other reasons for why artists dont like their art being stolen. If you cant understand any of that, just be happy that you dont have to worry about people stealing and claiming your code as easily as they can steal our art.
I've always wondered, in every other community, stealing other people's work is pretty much bannable. Why isn't that the case here? Is it really all about money?
that's why we stick to communities such as Pixel Joint and a few well known others among us.
