nope, but why bother? if I make some money with my game because Crytec was so kind to let me use their game engine for free, then I'm willing to pay something back as soon as I make some money...

as soon as you get into cryengine.com, they ask you to accept the new agreement.
Personally no problem ! it means more resources for the development.

Need to check what 5.5 has to offer tonight. Hopefully it validates the royalties.

Particle Editor got massive amounts of love :)

Cryengine was for a long long time roy free, something i havent understand at all.... I never understood this businessmodel.
I think 5% roys is absolutely OK, at least some money will go towards the development of cryengine and hopefulklly into more frequent updates.

They are good fellows, keep it up. It's not such a big money. And all the more everything will go to the development of the engine. It has long been necessary to do something like that.

It's fair.

Five percent is a fair royalty for everything you receive.
