1. You did not give him credit "unknown author" works.
2. Since you are not the original creator, it can't be a studio submission.
First reason is invalid as the brushwork is his own, At a 64 gridsize copying the layout from just a screenshot can be done extremely easily as there are no finer details to the map. The only thing the maps have in common is the layout of the crates in the middle. Since the original author of deagle5 did not actually partake in any work within this submission adding him to the authors list is unnecessary. However he can state within the authors notes that inspiration came from the original deagle5 if it is not already apparent to most just from the name of the map.
second reason is also invalid due to there being no original author.
I suggest you revise your assessment thats been appealed by the submission owner here otherwise it will just simply be canceled.
As Nintendo has stated, Take care with disapprovals in the future and make sure that everything is correct or even ask the author before submitting the disapproval.
I'm personally for open source stuff (using other peoples ideas) its the best way to make good things better.
But the fact that you explicitly say that nobody may use your map which is obviously a bettered version of someone elses work (be it totally remade or decompiled, i don't care.) is crap. Total crap.
Other than the drama about rights, ect, excellent work.

I believe nintendo cause he's a trustworthy person, but I'll leave this up to SGT.
All I am saying really is that even though something may look similar; a skin, texture, map, etc, until it is actually proven that it is a port or brush work copy, it is only then an assumption. If you do honestly think this map is a port or has stolen brushwork, then we can certainly look into it. You are a trustworthy person as well bro, and I am willing to take your word.
I completely understand your points Man Slayer, but I just think honestly right at this time, we cannot prove otherwise. So we should at least rate the map for what it is. You know? About credit theft, I honestly don't even know who made the first deagle map. And whether or not deagle 5 was the first version or not.
But I do agree with you that the original "deagle5" creator should be credited because obviously the pathways are exact, down to the T.
p.s. I heart you Man Slayer. ^___^ Don't think otherwise k?
I like this a lot, not much to say really since Nintendo said most of what I had in mind. I do agree, all the other deagle remakes have horrible lighting and makes me turn my brightness up lol. Overall, it is a very nice map and a good remake of a classic map.
