With the launch of the GameMaker: Marketplace people can now create and distribute, either for free or paid, assets and projects to other GameMaker users. However, as with all things there will inevitably be bugs, issues and questions with relation to the whole process.
To help resolve these things and to answer the questions you may have, you can post here and use this topic as an extra resource to help get information or to report issues that you have found while buying or uploading assets to the Marketplace.
Before posting however, please make sure that you have read the FAQ's avaialble from the Yoyo Games Knowledge Base here:
We also recommend that you read over the publishers agreement that you will be required to agree to before creating your publishers account: https://marketplace....ublishers/terms
Please do not post questions anywhere else in this forum, as it is primarily for showcasing uploaded asset packages. You can find the rules and guidelines for this forum here: http://gmc.yoyogames...howtopic=629070
Can I upload free assets? - Yes. Absolutely!
I am 16, can I upload things for sale? - To answer this I'll refer you to the TOS:
1.2. Access for adults only or with adult approval. To accept this Terms of Service and use the Marketplace, you must also be at least 18 years of age (or whatever is the age of legal majority in your country, if it’s not 18). If you are not an adult, then you can accept this Terms of Service and use the Marketplace only with a parent’s or guardian’s approval. We reserve the right to refuse to permit minors to use the Marketplaces at our discretion.
Can I create adult themed assets? - Yes, but they MUST be rated as such. However there are limits and racist, homophobic, pornographic etc.. assets are not permitted. See the rules and guidelines here: http://help.yoyogame...sion-Guidelines
Does YYG take a commision on sales? - Yes, as with most on-line stores, YYG takes a 30% cut of all sales.
Is there a payment threshold? - Yes, you will not be paid until your balance is approximately $100.
Can I use the assets in other products or situations? - YYG licences you the assets and you can use them where you wish after that, but each individual asset package may have it's own licence agreement from the publisher which they would enforce.
