This page contains legal information about the examples you'll find here.

Giving credit

All the examples and tutorials you can find on this website can be used free of charge. Because of the fact that some of the examples are very basic and small, credit is not always required. I leave it up to you to decide whether the example helped you enough to give credit.

As a basic rule you could say that if you learn something from an example, you don't have to give credit every time you use this. On the other hand, if you use a large part of the example in your own game, you should usually give credit.

For example, if in one of the examples you find out that there's a way to draw the current subimage of the current sprite AND use the draw-event of an object at the same time, I don't think you should give credit every time you use this. On the other hand, if you use one of the fighting game examples as base of your own fighting game, it's quite obvious that you should give credit.

If credit is required, this will be mentioned in the help-text of the example. Always check this text before using the example for your own games.

You can give credit by showing the name of the creator of the example. You could also refer to this website, but that's not obligatory.

Providing your own examples

There's a possibility to have me add your examples. This implies that your example also applies to the credit-rule mentioned above. If you want credit, mention this in the help-text of the sourcefile.

If you send me your example, this does not always mean it will be added to the website. I will personally see to it that the quality of the examples on this website will not decrease.

Examples you send may be adapted to improve their usefulness. I will try to upload them as they are, but the code should contain plenty of comments and a decent structure.

If you want to have your example removed from this website, you can send a request to my e-mailaddress. You'll find it in the page about Trollsplatterer.
