Hey Claudia, don’t know if you’re taking suggestions but if you do, I’d love some advice. Great Art! I love the overall layout and how ...

Update 2/1/2018 - Concern over commissions


He hid my comment. :lol: Sorry, I know what i am talking about. :lol:
Unfortunately, this is only one issue of many. It is just an exemplary example to illustrate the situation.


He say, that he only charging money for his conversion services. And in one of his comments in his previous journal entry, comments.deviantart.com/1/7271… he say "It would be the same as charging money for converting a word document to a PDF document, legally speaking."

That is exactly what he does :(
Buying a DAZ model and porting it to XPS for money
is exactly the same as
buying a E-Book and converting it to PDF and charging money for this conversion services.
It is crime and illegal, legally speaking!

I therefore want to repeat my comment as "open letter", and ask for your opinions.

Hey guy, in my opinion the content of your journal is BS. You're trying to fooling your watcher and to misinform your watchers. :(

The XPS "Terms of Use":
Please respect, you needs a permission document, given by the real owner, if you will share a model which is not made from scratch by yourself.

You saying, you am actually the only person in the community who makes models from scratch to share, so technically you would be the most respectful of all of the porters in the community? Handmade models? Made from scratch?
Sorry for clarifying it:
No, they are pay models from DAZ and some morphs of them. And you spread assets , ripped from copyrighted video games, without having the permission of the owner.
This is not what a "respectful porter" does. It is crime and illegal at all. Read the comments there:

 The Copyright War Begins

You saying, any model used in the XNALara community is stolen property, taken illegally from a videogame?
I hope that is not the case, except the video game assets which you distribute without the permission of the owner.
To clarify the matter -> www.tombraiderforums.com/showp… <-
At first it is a matter of the "permission document" from the real owner (video game publisher) to use their assets.
The :devart: copyright policy, in brief, states that your submissions may only contain materials or images which were created entirely through your own effort, authorized stock or resources and materials or images for which you have obtained permission for use in the submission.
You must obtain written permission from the proper and legal owner of any work which you wish to use!
I really hope, that every XPS porter has submit this permission document. Otherwise it is illegal.

You saying, YOU charging money for YOUR conversion services?
Sorry, I have never see that the real owner this allow. On the contrary! I will show to you a part of one of this permission documents as example:
Also, you should not use our works in order to do or say anything what is or may be considered racist, xenophobic, sexist, defamatory or otherwise offensive or illegal.
Please also remember that you may not use these assets for any commercial purposes!

It is illegal if you make money, even you would have their permission to share their assets (for free).

You saying, the videogame developers really don't care what we do with these models, illegal or not. The models themselves have no worth?
Sorry, you are wrong. Read for example the Ubisoft POLICY about POSTING COPYRIGHTED UBISOFT MATERIAL:
Assets: Please do not take assets from our games (for example voice, music, items) and distribute them separately.
Read (again) www.tombraiderforums.com/showp…
You start trying to make money off something they own, their lawyers will not take long finding you.
If you want to know what happens, then look here luxox18 or here Steve-Carpindo or here x-n-a.deviantart.com/gallery/ or here www.deviantart.com/sspd077/sta…

You saying that the fact of the matter would be, we're all breaking copyright laws by even opening models for XNALara?
True, some publishers do not allow even that we show there assets as XNALara_XPS render image! But, how will you load this models in XNALara, without having this models for XNALara? Remember, it is a matter of the permission by the real owner. If the owner do not allow to port the models, then there are not such models; or this models would be shared illegal by porters with dubious ethic. No serious porter will distribute a copyrighted video game model without the permission of the owner.




If you want to sell stuff you will have to use a free to use model (royal free), or make your own, just like you would have to with any other commercial venture. And you would have to be careful not to infringe on any existing copyright or trademark. You cannot just go sell stuff and cash in on someone else's creation. You need permission from the copyright owner at least, possibly more depending on the usage.

A useful advice for seeking permission:

The Basics of Getting Permission - Copyright Overview by Rich Stim ...

  1. Determine if permission is needed.
  2. Identify the owner.
  3. Identify the rights needed.
  4. Plan Ahead for Permission.
  5. Contact the owner and negotiate whether payment is required.
  6. Get your permission agreement in writing.
  7. Convert the release form into a JPG, PNG or PDF file by scanning the original. 
  8. Submit your finished work or browse to the deviation page of the deviation
  9. Click on the pencil icon near the top right corner and choose "Attach Permissions Document" from the options.
  10. Submit the permissions statement which you had previously converted

Your thoughts!

Hi! Sorry to bother you, but, for some reason, my mouse keeps changing from controlling the XPS camera to rotating, moving and scaling the bones. What should I do?

Hi XnaFreak!

Since XNALara "exists" on MacOS through GLLara, do you think there will be a "portable version" of XNALara for Android/iOS some time in the future, for people frequently on the go?

I know there are model viewers for Android, but they aren't exactly the same thing.

Hi TheDrawingLearner,

I am the wrong person to answer this. I have neither a MAC computer nor an Android Phone.

I know that GLLara use OpenGL and that  there is OpenGL ES for Android Developers
I know that XNALara use the Microsoft XNA framework and there is Mono for Android
So it should be basically possible to create a "portable version" of XNALara for Android/iOS.

I don't know any model viewer for Android.
So I have no idea how a "ControlGUI" for Android could be designed.

My personal opinion is that there will never be XNALara for Android.

GLLara is not just XNALara for MAC, it's a new different application. 
GLLara uses specific MAC features that are not available on Android.
XNALara uses specific MS Windows features that are not available on Android.
So, XNALara for Android must be an different app, created new from scratch.
 GLLara and XNALara can load, pose and render a picture of the same models.
 There is another application that can do the same with the same models: Blender
Blender is running on Windows, MAC, Linux and Android !!!

* Developing a new "XNALara for Android" version requires a lot of time and knowledge. I has covered this here comments.deviantart.com/1/7314…

* The XNALara community is not very kindly to developers. I had covered this here comments.deviantart.com/1/7492…

* I have twice created a new XNALara version as which was requested. But I did not even notice that anyone used it.  XNALara Update: version 9.8 by XnaFreak

If you request XNALara for Android, be consequent. If you want "XNALara" then you will get at most one application which can load the "XNALara" models. All custom models here on DA claiming to be a model converted for XNALara, can only be loaded in "XPS"; and this is a completely different app. Try to load this models in the latest XNALara version 9.9, and you will fail (Data folder contains no mesh file. Skipping)

P.S... Прочитай что я написал и сделай выводы! Мне не нужна война, я не хочу войны и боли!

Моя жизненная ситуация в которую ты конечно не поверишь, не позволяет жизнь нормальной жизнь! Прочитай комментарии на странице Marcelievsky (прокрути вниз).

Я никому не доверяю потому что против меня устроили возможно вы и XNAAraL хакерскую атаку, против меня собирали компромат и на моих родных и друзей (но не вы, это какие то типы из darknet скорее всего).

Мне неприятно не потому что могут удалить мои модели и модификации, но и мои посты (раньше я ненавидел людей из за глупости и алчности, но потом понял что не все такие), в каждом посту я надеюсь на единство всего человечество, слиянии всех с единой первоначальной формой, но не телом а духом, не религия моя цель и не ненависть - мне нужна истина, но не боль и отчаяние!

Если меня и так могут здесь заблокировать, то я решил больше не держать секретов, хотя мне страшно - потому что этими данными могут воспользоваться те твари что собирали на меня компромат! А в чём он заключался? В том "как я именно отношусь к действиям Израиля и США и РФ" - я сказал что там правят те, кто потом использует "нац-меньшинства" как оружие в политической манипуляции, я не знаю кто были эти люди но после общения с ними у меня пошли проблемы, потом я узнал что это возможно какие-то больные люди из darknet... DeviantArt хотят использовать и Facebook и Twitter в качестве оружия, вы можете считать меня больным паранойей, это ваше дело!
