About PLiCy

In PLiCy, it is possible to operate games made with RPG Maker 2000, Wolf RPG Editor (later 2.10β), and NScripter.
PLiCy has an operating engine which is compatible with the above engines, so you can simply play games on a PC browser or Android app by uploading in a compressed zip file.
Additionally, the games made by Clickteam Fusion 2.5 are also supported for upload.
Novel game production software pli-log and action game production software Game Designer Action are used in PLiCy.
You can create games with these game editors on both PC and smartphone, and the games work with either PC browser or smartphone browser.

Uploading Games

Q.Can you tell me the process for publishing a game?
The publishing process is as follows:

1. Prepare the game you want to publish.
2. Compress the game into a zip file.
3. Upload the zip file.
4. PLiCy will process the file for use (depending on data size, this can take between 5 minutes and 1 hour).
5. When the conversion is finished, the Setup button will appear on MyPage.
6. After Setup, the game can be test played, then a thumbnail selected.
7. The game is then automatically published.
Q.I want to stop the publishing of a game, what can I do?
Please delete the game.
The deletion process is fully automated.
When you delete a game, it will also immediately stop being published.
Also, once you delete a game, you will not be able to recover it.
Because PLiCy does not get involved in deleting, you can feel free to delete your work.
Q.Do you screen which games get to be published?
In order to run smoothly, PLiCy has automated all game publishing functions.
PLiCy staff will not be involved in any game selection functions.
Additionally, due to the automated nature of the site, it’s possible to publish games 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
Because PLiCy does not get involved in editing, you can feel free to publish your work.
Q.There was a bug in the game – how can I update it?
PLiCy has automated all the update functions for a streamlined experience.
Simply go to MyPage and click the Update button.
Due to the automated nature of the site, it’s possible to update games 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
Because PLiCy does not get involved in updating, you can feel free to update your work.
Q.How can I upload?
You can upload games after you Login.
If you can’t Login, you may need to Sign Up.
Please upload your zip compressed game with the Game Register in the upper right corner.
Please use the following zip formats:
:RPGMaker2000
:RPGMakerMV
:RPGMakerVXAce/Lite
:NScripter
:Wolf RPG Editor
:ClickteamFusion2.5
:HTML5
:Play Canvas
:WWA Wing
:Unity
:Construct 2
:Tyrano Script
:Game Designer World
:Visual Novel Maker
:Light.vn
:HSP
:Cocos2d
:GameMaker
Q.There was an upload error.
Check the contents of the zip file.
Encrypted uploads cannot be processed, so don’t use encryption.
Below are the supported file formats.
If these files are included in the uploaded zip file, they will be processed automatically in each format:

:Wolf RPG Editor
*.mps,SysDatabase.project,SysDatabase.dat,DataBase.project,DataBase.dat,
CDataBase.project,CDataBase.dat,TileSetData.dat,CommonEvent.dat,Game.dat

Q.There was an upload error using an above listed Wolf RPG Editor file.
2.10β is not compatible with previous versions.
If the game was made with a previous version, use the current version 2.10β editor. Then change the followings "Tile set editor", "Game basic settings", "System Database", "Variable database", "User database" more than once and save the data and upload in a .zip file.
Version 2.10 is currently distributed here: http://www.silversecond.com/WolfRPGEditor/Download.htmlにて配布されています。
Q.When I want to use RTP, what should I do?
RTP rights are retained by KADOKAWA Co., Ltd., thus we are unable to publicly provide RTP as a PLiCy service.
However, If you would like to use RTP in RPG Maker 2000, you can upload RTP and publish that individually.
Therefore, please bundle RTP in the game, or upload it to the user box.
Q.Is it OK to upload an unencrypted zip file?
In PLiCy you can enable/disable zip distribution.
If you set to “disable zip distribution”, the uploaded file will not be distributed.
With this setting, it is possible to not distribute an unencrypted zip file while the game can be played on the site.
Q. I want to delete copyrighted material that was uploaded without permission.
Your copyrighted material can be deleted by reporting to:
Game play screen>Report Copyright> [Copyright Infringement].
Q.What is the User Box?
The user box is a system to collectively manage frequently used material on the site.

Usually, you need to bundle files of images and music materials in the game data.
Prviously, If you want to use the same material in other games, you have to prepare duplicate game data.

So PLiCy made a UserBox.
In UserBox, you can keep all shared game material on the server, and then it is applied to other games automatically.

By uploading files to UserBox on Profile in MyPage, you can use the materials in different games.
With UserBox you can simplify your work of putting the same files in the game.
It is also possible to use RTP as a UserBox file.


Please put the materials in the appropriate folders based on each tool.
If you're not sure how to do this, you can put a file in the relevant part of the sample folders below.
(2015/01/17 update RPG Maker VXAce / pli-log / GameDesignerAction added)
UserBox file composition

Users who have not setup the UserBox can still enjoy playing games.
Q.My newly uploaded game does not appear in the New Release section.
Only 3 games per person are allowed to display in the New Release section.
This is to allow all users to have a chance to showcase their games.

For Game Players.

Q.Who do I report errors to?
PLiCy. Try to click the Report Error button at the actual error location, and we can investigate it more efficiently. (If you update or report from another contact form, the information will not be reported.)
The Report Error button is located on the bottom of the game screen.
Q.Is there a required upload file format?
No.(Except for encrypted Wolf RPG Editor).
In PLiCy, image files .png, .jpg, .bmp, .xyz (RPG Maker 2000 format only).
The audio file is compatible with mid, mp3, ogg, wav, and au formats.
You don’t need to covert these files when you upload.
Q.The sound quality of the midi file changes.
The actual sound quality can change slightly when used in PLiCy.
If you prepare several formats of the same file type,midi>mp3>ogg>wav, they will be used in alphabetical order.
Q.A midi file loops at a strange place.
PLiCy can process midi files, but occasionally these may loop at a strange place.
In such cases, try using a different file format.
Q.Please tell me the midi source being used in the game engine.
PLiCy uses the following sound font MIDI conversion:
piano-mgg.sf2
A320U.sf2
NTONYX SoundFont 32Mb GM Stereo Set
Q.The sound quality of .ogg and .wav files degrades.
Not as bad as midi format、but the sound quality of ogg、and wav files may slightly change.
Q.Animation image quality degrades.
PLiCy is not a video sharing site, and at the moment cannot support HD video.
Q.Some games have lag.
Since it’s using a browser, it is not suitable to run process-intensive games.
Therefor it is better to avoid operations which contain many parallel events and commands running constantly.
However, since we also want a smooth experience, please contact us and well see if we can help.
Q.The game I created and the uploaded game are acting differently.
Since there is a possibility of bugs, please contact us.
Q. I can’t use MIDI for a game event.
