Uploading Games

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)

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.

The publishing process is as follows:

1. Prepare the game you want to publish.

Animation image quality degrades.
PLiCy is not a video sharing site, and at the moment cannot support HD video.

Not as bad as midi format、but the sound quality of ogg、and wav files may slightly change.
