Hey guys,

Don’t know if you know about Gameleon already or not, but it’s a cloud game creating platform for making HMTL5 MMO’s. More recently, and more interestingly for you guys, we’ve developed a feature that allows you to import World of Warcraft 3d models and use them in your own games!

It’s powerful enough to recreate stuff like Diablo 2 in a browser, with an entirely visual interface. If you want to know more about recreating Diablo 2, read more here: http://www.gameleon.co/platform/cloud-game-editor/prototyping-example-remaking-diablo-2-with-gameleon'>http://www.gameleon.co/platform/cloud-game-editor/prototyping-example-remaking-diablo-2-with-gameleon

But this is not the cool bit I’m trying to get at: we’ve just recently developed GIF support: just drag and drop GIFs into the Skin Editor tool to instantly create isometric animated models and skins to use immediately in your game.

To showcase this feature, we’ve used World of Warcraft as a source of models – and this is where a WoW modding community would probably get excited. You can export, using WoW Model Viewer, animated GIFs of any model in the game and use them directly to make your own games, mockups, mini-games etc. Read more about it here: http://www.gameleon.co/platform/cloud-game-editor/introducing-world-of-warcraft-model-and-gif-importing-in-gameleon'>http://www.gameleon.co/platform/cloud-game-editor/introducing-world-of-warcraft-model-and-gif-importing-in-gameleon

We’d love to hear what you think about this, and Gameleon in general.

Also, we’ve been thinking of implementing a method that directly imports your character from the WoW Armory, for either playing as that character or as a model to use in your own games made with Gameleon. What do you guys think about that?

I personally don't really see the value in this. I'm not really talking about Gameleon as a platform (which I'm not equipped to judge, not being a browser game player or developer), but more about the ripping from Diablo 2 and WoW. Seems like a lot of effort put into something that could get a studio Cease and Desisted, and that can't be used commercially. Seems like you guys might want to put together your own demonstration stuff that isn't ripped, and that might help to show potential users the correct pipeline to use, one that wouldn't get them shut down by lawyers.

Pretty much, I don't even think it's legal to crack open the MPQ files. While it's cool and all, you should focus on a demo you will be able to use going forward.

Sorry -- your platform and tools look pretty interesting and impressive -- but we can't knowingly allow advertising of a project which infringes upon or encourages infringing on existing intellectual property such as Blizzard's sprites or models.
