Sorry ched but if you think you can shut down any game that "stole your concept" you might as well give up now. You are not the only person that can think up leveling, racing, doing crimes, training stats to get stronger, playing poker, etc etc. They are some pretty basic concepts and if you think you hold copyright over having those things all joined into one, you are sadly mistaken.

100% Agreed, there is no way you hold copyright for such things. Of course you hold copyright to images/css/html that is stolen.

[i]By Calculone [909888]i think this is a little more important as it concerns all users.


I wasn't losing any sleep over the matter prior to the announcement. Hardly what I would consider a concern.

As for the announcement regarding the peaceful faction changes, it was deliberately buried for a reason.

Lol Mccodes is not a copycat of tc. I bet when tc first started you got the idea from another game.

Edit: Funny how the new poker table is almost the exactly the same as another game which has theres for 4 years +.

MCcodes is cool. Gives you codes for Text Based Games. Torn City was made off of the 2.0 version, and many more games were made but most used the 1.01 or the free version., but there are some faults in some of these MCcodes.

So ched could legally get those %%%%...

To be brutally honest, I don't give a rats ass if someone copies someone elses codes. That's basically how we learnt to program PHP at school, back in the days.

Who cares?

At least those games probably think out their updates and compensate when they invalidate players progress.

Give me back my faction specials.

This game is going in the wrong direction.

Torn City was not made from MCCodes.
Yes MCCodes came after Torn City.

Even before mccodes was released there were thousands of games with the same concept as Torn City. The only difference really is that Torn City has a broader player base.

Torn City holds the rights to their images and their respective code. HOWEVER, they do not hold rights to having the "idea". That's simply absurd.

your silly pointing just one out, theres loads of games that follow the same genre, most text base RPGs do! alot even have the same layouts.
the one you mentioned isnt a great example. and in my opinion is in no way a copy of TC, ive seen others that are alot more similar. that one is quite alot different.

his is a warning to all TC copycats, and webmasters that use the popular âmccodesâ which goes against our copyright condiditons⦠We are watching you.

:-)
Interesting... I thought Dabs had mccodes before you had torn city... Rumor Around CE is that some of the mods on here were inspired by Dabs (meaning Dabs made it originally)... Although you took it a level higher. Also another interesting note is TC is unique because it simply because it could TAKE something from ANOTHER MYSQL/PHP game and convert it into the game better then where the 'code' was from.

I'm not too sure as to the legality of the 'code' copyright. mc came before tc, which is where i was ALWAYS under the impression that TC was adapted from... therefore; since that is freely distributed under the GPL, any fee's recouped as a 'tc loss' would have to be paid (at least royalties to) MC. Then again, I'm not too sure about how Euro law works...

American law goes something like this.

Take idea from place A.
Adapt place a's idea cosmetically, then expand on it and create B.
B's proof of concept is still the same proof of concept as a
B can sue C, but part / all of the winnings go to A, since A had the initial proof of concept.

Ched good luck defending your stance...

Aharonian v. Gonzales .
"Conversely, if plaintiff independently creates software that is functionally identical to other software, he does not infringe any copyright on the other software's source code, even if his independently created source code is nearly identical to the copyrighted source code."

Maybe the law is different in England but in America we take our copyrights seriously, and your claim is ridiculous...If that was true then I could sue you for making stalemate attacks cost energy since we did it before you.
