Permissions for use of SBuilderX for payware scenery?

#1
Hello all,

I had requested permission from PTSim for use of SBuilderX through private email per their information on the software and never heard back.

Does anyone know the procedure on using SBuilderX with payware? Is there a different email I should use? Should I private-message Luis Sa at PTSim about use of his software for payware use?



Many thanks,


Bill

Luis is not really active anymore, so I would not expect an answer from him. I never checked the SBuilderX use conditions, but does it mention making payware is not allowed?

Hi Bill.

Luis has released the code on GitHub. Here's the License info from there:

As it is public domain, there are no restrictions as to it's use, and user of SBuilderX assumes all responsibility for content derived from it's use. So do whatever you like with it.

Many thanks, Dick. Very much appreciated.

Yes, on one of his old ReadMe's I found that one needed to contact him concerning payware. It was originally intended for freeware only, from what I read.

Luis would have liked to make a bit of money with the old version. The new version 315 is public domain without restriction.
