Licence

I am curious if I need to purchase multiple licenses for my game.

It uses a master DB which depending where you decide to go it'll link the master DB with a sub DB for that area.

The different Sub DB's are for sub-domains. Would I need a license for each sub domain, or can I use just the one I purchased for the main domain?

i think there was a thread about this couple months ago and from that thread i would say yes you need licence per subdomain also unless running from 1 db only have a look at CB's post http://makewebgames.io/showthread.php/41887-Mccodes-Usage-License-Question?p=277495&viewfull=1#post277495

P.S Yes they need to really rethink this as the licence should be per whole domain not just TLD

Blade i asked Dabs this question as i also was a bit condused..

illusions - says

Hiya dabs someone is asking a question regards a v2 licence which im also confused about can he use his licence to create sub domains on his main domain using 1 licence ?

Dabomstew - says

depends what the sub domains are for

Dabomstew - says

if they're like "server 1", "server 2" etc with completely seperate databases u have to ask us first

------------------------------------

I would consult Dabs further on this Blade send a support ticket with your query

If you have the code on the main; then each subdomain points to the main (with a little trickery to pull from the right db, when on sever2 opposed to sever 1 for example), then you're still within the terms of the license, and they cannot make you pay for more licenses.

the thing i would try is just using the main domain as the root dir for subdomains then on the main domain detect the current user url to see what server they are on then make a dif style sheet if the user is on a different server to main one then so the same with the db just an idea never tried it but would be pretty easy

You my friend have just confused me... I understood what DKK was saying, then you said something. That made absolutely no sense to me. :P Sorry, and thanks DJK for that little bit.

Basically have

server1.game.com

server2.game.com

server3.game.com

All actually route to the domain game.com, then within the game.com script detect which 'site' they're on and then make the various changes to the configuration data/template etc.

Alright, thanks for the idea's. I'm going to go with the DB prefixes. I waited for McCodes Support area for 2 days, still no reply. I have another ticket in there since 4 August 2012, 9:01pm... Are they on vacation again for awhile? It's like when I bought V1 all over again... I actually buy it then poof, they vanish -.-""
