So what does it mean, really?

  1. You're free to use it in commercial and noncommercial projects.
  2. These projects must include the string "This product uses the DialogTree (D3) engine by Jari Komppa (http://iki.fi/sol)" somewhere, like in credits or about or splash screen or whatever.
  3. If you distribute source, you must retain the license text.
  4. If you distribute relinkable binaries, you must include the whole license with your distribution.
  5. If you only distribute your final product, the "This product uses the DialogTree (D3) engine by Jari Komppa (http://iki.fi/sol)" string is enough.
  6. And of course, don't sue me.

Apart from this, I'm always interested in hearing when my code is used somewhere, so toss me a mail, or a copy of your game =)

 

Comments, etc, appreciated, as always.
