Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Royalties on VR Arcade In House Games

I've read the EULA, FAQ and forum searches, but I haven't got a clear answer on this.

If I were to open a VR Arcade (if I win the lottery) and have people pay say, $10 per play of a VR game I made for MY arcade and no one else's, would I have to pay a royalty on each $10 transaction? (So basically 50 cents every time someone played it)

I've searched for the word arcade in the 2016 EULA and there's no more mention of it. There used to be a "coin-operated arcade" mention but it's gone.

In that case, yes there would be a royalty on the price to pay the game; that's the game's revenue.

I think for something like that you need to request a Custom licensing arrangement. Custom Licensing Request

They have simplified the agreement for general use down to.. "you'll need to track gross revenue and pay a 5% royalty on that amount after the first $3000 per game per calendar quarter."

It removes any confusion/issues developing from the "form" of transaction, but doesn't consider instances where multiple different titles would be the cause.
