Hi,

I'm wondering is it posiible for own game use a sequence of few pictures that were in anothere game, but resized from +100% to 15/10/5% (which would be roughly 98px height 32px width)? If not, what if they would be edited too?

Thanks :>

Legally no, you cant do any of that, not unless you have the rights, or have made the art yourself.

or unless you examine the legalities of the particular game license and it expressly states that such and such use is ok

which for most commercial titles, it doesn't
some companies are more forgiving of derivative works than others
and it's best to either research or check with the company

It's usually less work to do new ones instead of getting approval
