  4. 4. EF-12 On what "modification of one part" entails Motion 500 Character models 5 Background model 2 Skillset documents 6 BGM 32D 100 Effect 15 AI 6 The elements of EF-12 that can be modified are as displayed above. Motion 500 Character models 5+1 Background model 2 Skillset documents 6 BGM 32D 100 Effect 15 AI 6 In this example a single original character model has been added. This set now counts as 'original'. Motion 499+1 remodeled Background model 2 Skillset documents 2 BGM 32D 100 Effect 15 AI 6 Editing distributed materials instead of creating original content from scratch is also fine. However in this case the amount of changes becomes an issue. Please see the next slide. Character models 5
  5. 5. Definition of Modifications Motion → changed high kick to middle kick →Sample motion Modified motion Recognized as your original creation Fully original motion→ created using officially distributed model →Model for motion Considered as entirely original Fully original motion→ created from scratch → Entirely original Sample motion → only changed the filename → Modified motion Is not your original creation → extended the number of frames →Sample motion Modified motion Recognized as your original creation → increased movements of punch etc. →Sample motion Modified motion Recognized as your original creation In the case of Our definition of what is acceptable for motion modifications is relatively broad. We consider taking distributed data and changing it to be an entirely acceptable practice. This is also true for effects.
  6. 6. Definition of Modifications Characters / Background modelsFor → Redrawn textures → OR → Changes to model shape → Official model Modified model Case-by-case, but unless the changed element is 90% different, not acceptable. Fully original model→ model created using officially distributed skeleton →Official skeleton Recognized as your original creation Fully original model→ Created entirely by yourself from scratch→ Entirely original Official model → only changed the filename → Modified model Is not your original creation Official model Hard to measure, but acceptable as long as the content is over 50% changed. Modified Model → Redrawn textures → AND → Changes to model shape → It is difficult for us to assess model originality as they are attached other content. For this reason we believe unless both textures and model shape have changes it is not acceptable. This is also true for 2D.
  7. 7. Recommendation for distributing modified versions Definition of Modifications SE/BGMFor Original sound→ Entirely original content → Official SE/BGM → Effects added → Changed SE/BGM Is not your original creation In the case of music and sound effects, please create your content entirely from scratch. EF-12 Original data We ask that you use the latest version of EF-12 wherever possible when distributing the game with edited contents. Newest version We ask you update your distributions whenever EF-12 has a major version update. Entirely original
