The first thing: Yes, you can rename it.
The second thing: No. If you take away the copyright information at the bottom, you won't be allowed to use the software at all.

hi Smiley

you may change any text you want by using the translator.
if you edit files, you have to publish any changes.

YET...

you are not allowed to remove any copyright information, especially not the one in the footer you mentioned.

look at the license Smiley the ccl agreement under which you are allowed to use the game. it is *not* gnu.

You can change the logo and the name Smiley no problem.
But you are not allowed to remove the copyright footer Smiley (using different colours is ok)

if you change ANY file you have to publish ALL changes to these files. Easy as that. If not, you are breaking the license and are not allowed to use the software.

Also, part of the license is, that the copyright information provided in the page footer remain intact. You may add text to this part but you are not allowed to remove anything from there. All text in there has to stay there. (you may change the layout though)

You may do anything you like with the rest of the game. You don't have to keep it The Green Dragon. But, if you turn it into Sally Snakecharmer and the Mystery of the Menacing Mammoth game, and I decide I like it, if I ask for your code, you MUST give it to me for free. =)

You must give it to anyone who asks. I can then run exactly the same game as you, if I want to, for free.

That is the way the license works. We give you the code for free, which we have spent thousands of hours making for you to have for free, and in return, if you use it, you must give it to others.

if you use the translator to change text, you don't have to publish your translations database (as far as I know) Wink
Even if it's the page_header.

Oh yes! Nightborn is totally correct. I was of course, referring to changing the code - thanks for clearing that up. Smiley

Also: The copyright applies to all the files too. You can't edit or delete the copyright on someone else's modules unless there are changes made to the code, in which case you should follow the recommendations in the thread titled Author Credit Guidelines.

On the whole this is a GREAT community to share and be a part of. The rules are not there to be horrid. They are there to encourage us all to give and to share - without that you would not have the game to adapt in the first place! Smiley

You can earn money with LoGD through your donation button.  You CAN NOT:

-  Charge players to register or play your game
-  Charge people for your code
-  Use LOGD in a commercial manner.
