What about using ReactOS logo and art in your game?

Take a look at the following post:

I don't see what would be wrong with including ROS artwork in a game, though I don't know what the foundation would think due to trademark issues, at the least, include a disclaimer statement about who owns the trademark... ("ReactOS and the ReactOS 'planet' logo are registered trademarks of the ReactOS Foundation...")

At the least, I would make such a game skinnable. Then you can apply a ROS-themed skin.

I have changed my mind. I don't think you should make a pinball game.

Probably thinks it's too hard for it's worth.

Hi all,
This is who used to be @reactions. I am pleased to announce the ReactingBall project which is being made with UPBGE and Blender.

https://github.com/Jah-On/ReactingBall

This will be open to everyone, but I will offer you all to include it in ReactOS.
Thanks,
Jah-On

PS: ReactOS looks much cleaner! Great jobs developers!

ReactOS is an open-source clone of Microsoft's Windows NT operating system. It is right now nowhere near finished but is still a very interesting operating system. Although some people might not like it, I'm a hard-core Linux user and still love ReactOS.

If not directly included on ReactOS, possibly add it to RAPPS

I have Emilia pinball running on Windows. There's no reason it shouldn't work on ReactOS as well. It's SDL based. I've updated it to work with SDL 2.x in case SDL 1.2.15 isn't available. You can also create your own tables for it. The version I have comes with three different tables. Doesn't look exactly like the Windows pinball game, but it's a nice version if you want some kind of pinball working on your system.

I'm all for it, not only would it be something fun to play around with, it could also be helpful for very, very basic benchmarking.
