Someone uploaded SMBX 1.3.1 on Itch.io claiming they made it

Postby mcnakahr » Sun Jun 21, 2020 4:21 pm

As the title states someone is passing themselves off as the creator of SMBX 1.3.1 now I'm not sure how important this may be to you guys but I just wanted to toss it out here that it's going on. I did report it on itch.io already.

https://rayengames-studio.itch.io/super-mario-bros-x

The game page shows the version 1.3.1 and it shows it was uploaded 20 days ago, from the time of this post.

This guy has been doing this with proprietary games like Spider Man 2 as well. Pretty scummy.

I already reported this. Also, said person posted freaking Counter-Strike Source, which I'm pretty sure is just flat-out illegal.
Now taking graphics requests:

My graphics pack:

Really tempted to just make a general graphics thread for all of my graphics instead of just making individual threads for each of them.

I made a report as well. The more reports the merrier. It's a real shame there are people stupid enough to think that they can get away with this. What makes it even worse for him is that there's an option for downloaders to donate to him on that download page. I mentioned that in my report that that's grounds for a lawsuit from Nintendo if they ever find out about it.
Need serious help with Lua based features :(

I wouldn’t call it stupid enough, I would find it more stupid that people actually give someone money for something you can get for free.

Google is Hard to use.


Also looks like it’s been dealt with now.

That's wonderful. Since the issue has been resolved I don't think this topic is necessary anymore so can it be locked, please?
