umm, just wondering if what i'm doing is allowed...

so i'm making a shoot em up, and have made an editor for the enemies, and levels, which is a separate application that i wont include with the game, im just using it to 'code' the enemies movements in a more simple and controlled way. the editor then saves this into .txt files, which i then import into the game by just pasting it into string objects.
the game then turns it into an .ini file, and reads/interpret it to tell the enemies how to move etc.
the basic engine is pretty much done, but it would be pretty stupid to put a lot of work into it without being sure if it is allowed or not... xP

so basically:
- using a stand-alone editor
- storing the data internally in the game
- creating an .ini file from that when the game is run

allowed?

So if someone says you're not allowed to write a book longer then 20 pages, who says you're not allowed to write a huge ass FAQ that fills in all the gaps. I like it.

that's the thing that makes me unsure xP

you see, the editor saves an external text file full of nonsenes and numbers and crap,, then i just paste that into a couple of string objects into the game .mfa. when i then want the game to read it, the game creates an external .ini file out of it after starting the game... which the game then uses to do shit~

so does that count as external data or not? agh, headaches

if theres no extra file in the .zip you submit then its fine. if it creates a file after the first time you run it than its fine.

Waffle, I think that's fine. I'm doing the same thing, minus the ini saving/loading step. External files are not allowed but if they're created by the game then it's ok, as far as I'm aware.
