The site that I think you shut down (dota city), was NOT shut down. Their account is suspended, which means that they more than likely didn't pay their bills. Also TC was NOT made up from scratch by quacks and ched, it was mccode, and I have seen many ideas on here that I saw on other text based websites before-hand. So it looks like you could have a copyright issue there yourself.

What did the five fingers say to the face? SLAP!!

LOL Dota City was a joke.. everyone who was there knows that...

"recover your costs"???

... hahahaha

50 Yen?

Frankly you should be happy that someone thought it worthwhile to copy

.. and you don't OWN the copyright to MCCode... far better implementations have been made. Shame on you to even mention that.

TC is def not based on the mccode glued together scripts allthough both are following the same concept and never heard of OOP and still in the dark ages about CSS.

Yet it's easy to spot modules in both that are basicly free available scripts on the net that are rewritten/alterd to use the existing db structure .

Do you really think they invent the wheel again ?

Last free modification I've seen for mccode based scripts is a rewrite of the popular mIRC script/minigame Timebomb. where players have to defuse a bomb.

The guy didn't write it from scratch, he used the existing script and alterd it.

Ched seems to be trying to damage his competition by going after the source - MC Codes. MC Codes does not copy any of TC's stuff. It is the shady individual webmasters who do that. I have played many and currently run a game that uses MC Codes as it's base and there is no similarity to this game at all.

mdshare??? I actually wrote code for a timebomb system, where users cut a wire to defuse it and receive a prize...

its not pretty but I wrote that, and I have written newspaper coding, and organised crimes where you need to do the tasks......


I am sick of seeing mods used.......... i hate that.. but the ideas can not be protected......... only the code. images yes if you own the image copyright....

So I doubt MC-CODEs is the issue, a copycat site would need to be using ripped off code or graphics...

I think you need to protect your investments and work, but legal action is risky...........

If the game Ched had shut down was Dota City... make NO mistake it WAS a BLATENT rip off... down to stealing pages from TCs newspaper - i.e. it had an article about Body's dollar sale!

We used to refer to it as CopyCity .. although half the stuff never worked.

But, as for getting compensation from them? I doubt it... you couldn't donate on that game.

I'd like to see Ched win a lawsuit against a site running âmccodesâ or any other similar scripting, based solely on the fact that it is similar to TC, or has the same features / functionality.

Good Luck with that one mate.

I do however agree with chasing down sites that have blatantly used the HTML, CSS and Images of TC.

This is just ched's yearly rant he has done it for th epast couple of years.

How can you say TC copcats when you yourself copied torncity.

How can you say your ideas have been used/stolen. I see someone create a couple of mods and amazingly a couple of weeks later TC has them who is really stealing idea's here?

You canonly shut down games using your images if they are not using your images but are making there site look liek yours or using your ideas they cannot be shut down.

Ched has this yearly rant because sales/doantions are down throughout the summer and he needs to find someone of getting members and donations!

I would love to see a responce from you on that ched.

Too members of TC there are many more games out there they may not have the members but alot of them have more and better mods so look somewhere else.

It's quite interesting reading this.
This is partially to do with the fact that some people think they can do what they want, and anything they want. You can't go and shut down games that look like Torn City. That's outrageous. Do the images even have a copyright??

Also, people think of the same mod ideas...so you can't go accusing them of stealing "your" mod idea, because, for all you know, they could have thought of it first.

Another thing I have to say/ask: I know you won't "shut down" the lower games, but why try to shut down games that threaten yours? What's the point? You're probably not going to "win".

You do realise that NO ONE can sue any other game for having the same ideas as Torn City. For all you know, they may have thought of it first, but couldn't implement first. Maybe because they're not as advanced in PHP coding and couldn't afford to have somebody code it for them.

My point being, everyone has ideas, some the same as you, Ched. You can't sue a game just because they may have a mod or two based around the same idea.

Maybe if they use an image from TC they can be sued. But a lot of the images can be Googled and therefore are not copyrighted to TC....

Copyright infrigment ... how many sigs on TC use copyrighted images.... I really doubt sig creators are gonna pay a license to use a stock image especially knowing that a 10% change voids copyright.

Anyway TC is a good game and he should be proud that people try to copycat TC , but ched made a blatant mistake with this post with false/wrong claims and fear but at least he doesn't close/delete this thread.

Not many game owners would leave a thread as this one open.

Oh and you even support a certain mccode game big as you use their ad site to promote TC.... funny actually your funds are used to promote their game....
