Free Edition Revenue

  • So for the free version of Construct 2 is the tutorial on this link: https://www.scirra.com/tutorials/482/publishing-your-construct-2-game-on-game-jolt applicable to the free version of Construct? Game Jolt gives 30% revenue share and they have an achievement system but is that allowed with the free version? I'd think ad revenue doesn't count but rather sales. Thanks!

  • The licensing is very specific: https://www.scirra.com/tutorials/57/how-construct-2-licenses-work

  • But what if I publish the game to my website and gain AdSense money? The ads aren't in the game and technically they're for pageviews/impressions off of my site.

  • If you have a specific query regarding licensing, simply email directly. I'm sure Tom or Ashley will be able to clarify things for you.

  • I remember when someone wanted to make money from Youtube videos towards the Free Version of C2 and I remember Ashley saying that they could do it as long as they would use that money to later buy a Personal License, but I would do like zenox98 mention and emailed them to be sure that you could do this..

  • If that is allowed....then we can drop all licences seriously!

    The game is shown combined with your advertising, which definitely makes it commercial!!

    It´s the same as if they are Ingame or on Gamejolt or whatever!

    It´s the commercial-"purpose" that counts!

    Even if you would publish it to promote your own products without ads, direct income and stuff it wouldn´t be allowed!

  • KazaaaMafia: I doubt the quote you're mentioning ever happened. Or maybe back in 2011/2012 at the very beginning of C2's commercialisation but since then things evolved.

    Free version does not allow you to make money from your productions, if you want to monetize a personal license, at least, is required.

    @dreadnought: Putting adds around the game is considered as monetizing the game which is forbidden by the terms of the free version.

  • The free version is meant for learning, not for publishing/monetizing. Besides, with 100 events only, there's only so much that you can do...

  • Kyatric - Actually.. that was this year...

    Maybe I worded it incorrectly, but you can monetize making tutorial videos on youtube, whether it's free or license, because you're not selling the software itself.. However, you can't sell games or monetize from games made with the free edition...

  • KazaaMafia: In the topic you specify, Ashley just tells that the user asking is allowed to monetize the videos he's making since he has a license.

    Nowhere he clearly specifies "you can make money out of the free version as long as it is money you'll be saving for the license".

    On the opposite, when that specific question ("Can I monetize in order to buy a license ?") already had been asked, Scirra brothers have always been clear about it, the free version is not meant to make money out of it.

    At all.

    Hence :

    In which, if you go back to my last post.. I said that I worded that thread incorrectly.. and made edits to my mistake... but yeah.. the answer has pretty much been made for OP..

  • KazaaMafia: Once again, sorry but your edit is still letting out a wrong idea.

    By the terms of the free version you are not allowed to monetize. So if you monetize a video you made using the free version, you're breaching the free version terms/you need a license to do so.

    So saying "you can monetize making tutorial videos on youtube, whether it's free or license, because you're not selling the software itself.." is just a false statement and a misunderstanding of the licenses terms. Still a wrong wording.

  • Oh alright.. Never made a Youtube video with the Free Version of C2, so I don't guess I wouldn't really fully know..
