Hi! I have no idea if I can do some APK with just a small sample text and display on a website, because the license file does not show anything about it then I let here my question...
Am I breaking the license terms of Game Maker Studio making that?

The file is this: <LINK REMOVED>

Yes.

The Studio Beta explicitly forbids you from distributing anything made with it.

Did you see what have in this APK?
I't just a text saying "Super Maker" and nothing anymore.
Is still like that a crime?

"Crime" is a bit harsh... However technically you are in breach of the license agreement if you distribute anything that you make with it...

3.2. Stand-alone versions of Applications created with the Software can not be distributed without the prior written permission of YoYo Games Ltd.

But there's no way consider this as an application, program, much less a game.
I'ts just for this that I'm saying "especial case".

Was your APK file created with Game Maker Studio? If so, then the APK falls under section 3.2 of the licence agreement. An APK file is a stand-alone application/program (sure, it's a container for files, but an app none-the-less.)

Why bother asking a question if you're just gonna argue with answers you don't like.

Fine, you want an answer that you agree with.

Go ahead distribute it. There, feel better now?

Don't do that NakedPaulToast, fingers can be pointed at you for encouraging someone to commit a breach of a licence agreement.

I'm just disagreeing with this case that I think you have some power to resolve something here, but since I do not leave it out of the question

Don't do that NakedPaulToast, fingers can be pointed at you for encouraging someone to commit a breach of a licence agreement.

I'm not like that

So this guy comes on the forums brags wanting to rip people off so he can laugh about it, and I'm the guy with the bad attitude.

Gotcha.

@NakedPaulToast: You are the one who has been here longer, you should know the forum Rules of Behaviour. You are not setting a good example to new GMC-users. I have nothing against either one of you, NakedPaulToast nor Shadow10. I am hoping we can all co-exist, and thrive here together. We all have our good days, and our bad. Let's just leave this be in the past and move on as buddies. I have much to learn from you, and perhaps both of us can learn from Shadow10.

Guys, guys... Calm it... Futhark, NPT may not have the most endearing way of speaking at times, but (bless him) he is usually right in what he says and using sarcasm to get a point across is certainly not against the rules. As for you Shadow10, no exceptions. If YoYo games makes one for you, they have to make it for everybody. So, however laughable you may think it, that means you canīt make and distribute anything without previous consent from them, not even an apk that says "THIS IS A TEST" with the GameMaker:Beta logo all over it. Sorry.

...he is usually right...

Usually?

...but (bless him)...


OK, I'll let that usually thing slide.

All right, order has been restored :thumbsup:

I'm ok with hugs, or do you prefer just a shake of the hand NPT?

In either case ... hugs all around!
