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.

Users who have not setup the UserBox can still enjoy playing games.

Will my game be reviewed when it is 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.
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.
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.
There’s no game cursor on my Android device.
If no cursor is programmed, it will not appear.
If you need to use direction keys, please describe such as direction keys or up down right left.
I can’t use MIDI for a game event.
The MIDItrack is unavailable.
The game I created and the uploaded game are acting differently.
Since there is a possibility of bugs, please contact us.
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.
Animation image quality degrades.
PLiCy is not a video sharing site, and at the moment cannot support HD video.
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.
Please tell me the midi source being used in the game engine.
PLiCy can process midi files, but occasionally these may loop at a strange place.
In such cases, try using a different file format.
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＞m4a＞mp3＞ogg＞wav, they will be used in alphabetical order.
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).
