No Commercial Use?

Sep 4, 2010 at 3:14 PM

I just came across this tile editor from a link in the XNA forums. It looks great, but it looks like the licences means I can't use it in my Windows Pone 7 game :o(

(A) Reciprocal Grants- For any file you distribute that contains code from the software (in source code or binary format), you must provide recipients the source code to that file along with a copy of this license, which license will govern that file. You may license other files that are entirely your own work and do not contain code from the software under any terms you choose.

This is quite a shame, because it looks like a very nice editor!

Thanks for highlighting this. My intention is that tIDE should be free for use in both commercial and non-commercial projects. I have changed the license from MS-RL to MS-PL which should be more appropriate.

Hi Colin,

That's excellent news! I'm glad I took time to post here now :-)

I appreciate this change - I've been using Tiled until now, but I've had to implement parallax scrolling myself (and was going to do the same for animated tiles), so it's good that I can test tIDE out now!
