How do you protect an application? I mean when I download a file it is protected, meaning I can't open it, or can't even find the cca file. Not if I want to edit one out. I just don't know how to save an application in a protected way. I looked at the readme, but all it says for protected is something in the Rich Edit object...
i dont know how well this would work at all, but if you made the game in 2 .exe's, one was the actual game that you would release without any problems, and another would be an encryptor/decryptor. see where im going?
whenever the game is shutdown it encrypts itself, and to play the game you simply run the decryptor, using blowfish of course. why you ask? because people are getting smarter and its possible to hack into a MMF generated .exe file and view levels and such.
That's way-overcomplication. Besides, if the user ctrl+alt+del and ended the process, or the game crashed, it would be left in an unencrypted state. Plus MMF doesn't include any edit time data, so it would be very difficult to actually use any data if you did manage to extract it from an EXE. In other words an MMF build EXE can be considered secure.
Yeah I did that with Destruction Carnival back in the day to get that Cranberries song.

I remember someone was developing a program that allowed you to 'hack' into .gam files. You could see every level, the password for each and you could move them around and the like. I'm not sure where it went or if the person ever finished it.
