    Something big happened.

    So, about this new programmer I mentioned in a reply before, he was kicked out of our project.
    One of our artists checked his personal "sprite database," and found out that he was using fanmade Pokemon stolen from other fanmade Pokemon games.
    His first approach to the project was about whether we had a lot of fakemon, and offered to help out with the Exelis Pokedex wiki.:thinking:
    Considering that, it was likely that he was planning to steal our Pokemon ideas as well.
    We have no room for art thieves in our project, so our leader banned him instantly.:coffee2:

    After he was kicked out, he threatened to "report to Nintendo" when our game comes out.:rage2:
    Now we have our #1 hater.:lole2:

    I'm surprised to have met someone like that.

    I'm impressed how my team is responding to this incident because they're all like
    "At least I got myself to learn how to make sprites"
    "We should do a better background check in the future"
    like it's nothing. asd

    That does sound alright to me, I'll go and try to contact him on facebook, though I'm rarely active on FB, lately I'm more online because of my little sister, I want to keep an eye on her (because of certain reasons) but otherwise, not really that active xD.

    And also as I mentioned before, I'm terrible when it comes to full body Pokémon sprites (hence why I do fusion sprites for Luminon... it's because the sprites already exist xD) and I really mean with terrible... horrendously terrible, never dare to do that, so bad.
    But as you probably have seen in my own game (Luminon), I can do custom trainer sprites, trainer overworld sprites and (yes) I can also do Pokémon overworld sprites of the pkmn already created (I only cannot do custom (for the Pokémon part) full bodied back/front+shiny sprites). And if you prefer to have it more RSE style, I can try my hand at it to figuring out the sprite style (It's not much of an issue I think, just a couple of days toying with it)

    I actually don't mind to not put my own input in the game ^-^ I would actually prefer to keep it to you guys and I'm just the trainer sprite(and ow artist) for you guys ^-^

    Honestly I wouldn't worry about Nintendo... I don't understand why people are so afraid for copywright infringement, as everybody probably has noticed.. barely anywhere I have put my actual personal data when it comes to contacting me, even if they do.. they cannot get to me anyway so who's going to pay if they don't know the actual person.. and yes they can go to court, but because this is the internet, you can always say it isn't you they have claimed against they have not a shred of proof that it is actually you!! (that is if you're like me and never give out your full data xD)

    That's great! Thanks so much XD
    I know I've kept telling you to contact our project leader like he's a completely separate person, but if you message the Pokemon Exelis Page, the odds of myself replying to you is pretty high too. (I'm an admin of the page too). In fact, I'm on facebook as often as I am on Pokemon-Trainer, so you won't have to worry too much. Even if I'm not there, DrewDrops is really friendly.

    You don't have to worry about your pokemon spriting capabilities either asd
    We need a trainer sprite artist as much as we need a pokemon sprite artist, so having your help will make an enormous difference anyhow.
    Besides, we could find a way to recreate our fanmade Pokemon by fusing different parts of pre-existing Pokemon.

    Well, just in case using facebook doesn't work out that well for you(since you don't use it that much in the first place), do you have a platform that would be more comfortable for us to exchange idea and sprites?

    Ooh haha xD That's ok >-< I've contacted the groups page (and you were right it was quite easy to find haha) hope it all goes alright and they don't disapprove of my sprites (if they want to see that xD)

    Aww thanks xD I'm really sorry I cannot help much with Pokémon sprites :(.. though I am starting to think to maybe give it a go again (because I feel so useless haha) and probably my first sprites will look absolutely terrible... but maybe I can learn the sprites dynamics by using pieces of the original sprites as a base to work on and from there make the sprite to the Pokémon I want it to, not sure that will turn out well but that might give me a chance to learn the sprites basics... which will probably take forever to learn but I am thinking of it.. even though I think I'm so terrible at that xD

    I'm ok with using facebook, though I never post art from me there haha xD, but I do am very active on DeviantArt, I always check it several times a day to see if I get new messages plus I can use it's sta.sh function to post art without submitting it to the public and share the link where I post them so all of you have access to the sta.sh folder I post them in.
    That is if you're ok with that?

    That works for a free hosting that don't care who you are... you can be a dog and they will give you the free hosting. This change if you buy a domain name and the hosting... here you must write your real name, surname and so on...

    From Wikipedia:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Notice_and_take_down

    But even if you have a free host with a fake name/surname they can remove your content... an example is the Wiki "Pokémon Essentials"... Nintendo contacted "Fandom" (they give the host to all the Wikis they hosts) with a DMCA notice notifying of content that was in violation of its copyright holdings. Fandom, as a host, must takedown the Pokémon Essentials wiki (I don't know if they have to contact the webmaster or not since they are a free host)
    Now I don't know really well what happens with a paid host... maybe they contact the webmaster with a DMCA (like happened with Pokémon Uranium)...
    Most of the times Nintendo order to remove the downloads of the game (because it wouldn't have been in Nintendo’s financial interests to sue them because the court case would likely have cost way more than the developers of the game could afford to pay after the judge ruled Nintendo’s way).
    Here is how a takedown notice looks (this is for a Zelda game):
    C-rS12iXsAIugNd[1].jpg

    Now... I'm not telling anyone to stop doing their fan game (I love them) or that as soon as someone add a download of their fan game online they will be hit with a DMCA (Uranium was hit becuase a LOT of people downloaded the game) but be aware of what can happen :yeahyeah:

    Awesome! I saw that message too by the way. asd Eon/DrewDrops already replied to you right?
    It won't be long until you're in the group!:hi:

    You really don't have to worry about Pokemon sprites now. :yesyes:
    We're all artists that are trying to get better, so with your current skills, you'll be considered very very good.
    Even if you don't make any Pokemon sprites, you can keep working on our trainers.
    In the meantime, we could look for other sprite artists that are better at making Pokemon.

    I'll talk to them about Deviantart. Battlepyramid is a admin of our project, and he's very active on that platform too.
    He's uploaded lots of "official art" for our game on the site, so you could use his gallery as a reference to make trainer sprites.
    Here's his page. https://www.deviantart.com/battlepyramid

    Ah yes they have replied back ^-^ And I have seen just now that I have been put in the groups chat so now I can talk to all the other guys out there aswell xD

    Ah xD I'll try not to worry to much haha.. though I think I still will try to give it a go when I have released my Alpha demo from Luminon released >-<

    Oh Battlepyramid!! I have seen a message from him the other day on my Luminon post there xD I didn't know it was him haha xD thanks for letting me know, I'll watch him right away xD and about the trainers, I'll go ahead and have a try at the trainer sprites >-<

    That do is good to know, though if it has been downloaded atleast once by someone else well try and get the download gone everywhere xD People still have it and probably will share it until they get a note to delete the download (which probably can take a while haha)

    I think that once someone has the files it will be impossibile to delete everything.... that's why some fans of Uranium created a fan site and are still working on the updates (and you can find in those fan sites the download of the game)

    Yeah that is so true xD Oh well, you can't stop essentials either, someone has made a nice replica for the website ^-^ I have found it, it was really cleverly hidden xD. But now I can finally look up some things I'm a little stuck with again haha xD

    Sad news.
    Recently, our project director Eon/Drewdrops announced that he will be on hiatus until the end of the year for personal reasons.
    I hope his situation gets better in the near future that he can take lead of the project again.
    For the time being, myself and BattlePyramid will be in charge.
    We will do our best to make as much progress as possible even without Eon.

    Wish us luck!
