Dude how insecure are you that you need to ask such a BLATANTLY basic question.

Or have I read the drama wrong and you just want some attention because you like the way it makes your prostate fizzes.

Yeah that was a bit of a stretch.



To answer the question; Modding is illegal from a copyright standpoint. This is a very difficult and gray area however.

How it works is this; If you take content from a game and release it in a manner that allows you to generate revenue, that's illegal.

If you take assets from one game and move them into another game, that's kind of illegal too.




But on a real world level; If you take assets and try to release it for money, you're gonna get shut down. If you're building a game based on a copyrighted work that interferes with the IP holder's business, you're gonna get shut down.

Examples would be the Halo RTS fan game that was shut down when Halo Wars was being developed. Because they were creating a game based on Microsoft's franchise that could compete in any way with their ability to utilize that franchise, they were shut down.



Also, if you do anything at all using Nintendo assets, expect to get a very swift Cease and Desist. Nintendo is the worst.


Microsoft is actually fairly cool about all this stuff;

These are their rules

I laugh at people who put STUDIOS in their name.

I'm usually the kind of person who doesn't give a care in the whole world what other people think unless I get a C&D from someone who actually matters in my case ^_^

Ergo: A random fanforum admin has no say in my modding practices, screw them. But if the devs themselves have beef, that's when I behave

to me its like sampling. is it illegal? sometimes. does anyone care? not unless you're getting rich off it. and a lot of folks like seeing what people do with their work, and im sure that goes for vidya devs too.
