Preventing people from taking mission from mpmissionscache and hosting it themselves

Post#1 » Thu 28 Sep, 2017 6:20 pm

Hi, I was wondering how you edit your mission file so that people can't take it from their MpMissionsCache folder and then just host it on their own server?

Cheers

I tried decompiling it a a while back to be nosy, none of the tools I tried worked.

They must obfuscate the file somehow.

As far as I know we use an NSA-Tool called "Hexagon-Datasafety" to encrypt our files *sarcasm off*

Seriously, i don't know and i think our DEV-Team won't tell you how they encrypt it, Sry.

Well, it's not a secret. It's the subscription version (costs money) of mikero tools, which has obfuscation.

And you can't run the mission without the appropriate add-on installed on server side.

I never really thought about it that much, but this is a great idea. I guess it means that the really important code never makes it onto the client, it just sits in a seperate add-on which only ever lives on the server.
