Frequently asked questions
Since the free trial includes only a limited number of generations, only the tools that are the easist to use are included.
Yes, it works on Windows, Mac, and Linux.
No, the models run on cloud GPUs so you don't need a strong graphics card yourself.
No. We don't want to incentivize using the tools as little as possible. The generation limits are not enforced unless it becomes a problem.

"[...] we are updating the Content Survey that developers fill out when submitting to Steam. The survey now includes a new AI disclosure section, where you'll need to describe how you are using AI in the development and execution of your game. It separates AI usage in games into two broad categories:
Pre-Generated: Any kind of content (art/code/sound/etc) created with the help of AI tools during development. Under the Steam Distribution Agreement, you promise Valve that your game will not include illegal or infringing content, and that your game will be consistent with your marketing materials. In our pre-release review, we will evaluate the output of AI generated content in your game the same way we evaluate all non-AI content - including a check that your game meets those promises.
Live-Generated: Any kind of content created with the help of AI tools while the game is running. In addition to following the same rules as Pre-Generated AI content, this comes with an additional requirement: in the Content Survey, you'll need to tell us what kind of guardrails you're putting on your AI to ensure it's not generating illegal content."

Sadly we cannot do much to improve handling of lossy connections because Aseprite has very limited networking functionality.
You can downsize your photo and then use it as an init image with for example "Generate image (style)" or "Generate large image".
