I could have sworn there was a basic Q & A thread for fan-games yet now I cannot find it, if this is posted in the wrong section, please inform me.
I come to you today with a few questions about fan-games and MMF2 in general.
1) I know the sonic worlds engine runs at a specific resolution (I can't think of the exact figure off the top of my head), I assume this is because it is the resolution that best mimics that of the Megadrive / Genesis thus making Sonic games look most at home and ensuring the graphics are in proportion. My question is, if the resolution was doubled and each sprite / graphical asset had increased detail, do you think it would look aesthetically pleasing? or would it be difficult to play because of the larger size?
2) This is more of a general idea regarding both fan-gaming but more original content. How do you stop people from stealing your ideas or characters?
