Hehe:  Just for fun I downloaded your jar.  It won't run on my 64-bit version of hotspot (The DLL barfs).  That's one way to protect the info.  Wink

yeah, I compiled it on x86 therefore it only runs with 32-bit virtual machines.

Proguard is also a pretty good shrinker, optimizer, obfuscator, and preverifier.

ProGuard doesn't really.. work! Last time I tried it, it wouldn't do anything to my code (I decompiled and checked)  Cranky
Then it told me to provide obfuscated names in some mysti-fysti-file-format and I gave up. Not really the most straightforward tool IMHO. I didn't read the manual but good software works for anyone without a manual! Right?! Riight?

It does work, I've used successfully many times. Maybe you didn't set it up properly?

Well, it is, really. Maybe not massively cheap or massively easy but certainly not the valuable scarce resource programmers like to pretend it is.

Code is as cheap as you allow it to be.  Good code is a rare and valuable resource just like Albert  Einstein was a rare and valuable resource, but it is only worth what you make it out to be. 

Smart people tend not to make money from code because they don't take advantage of others like leaders do.  Is the code on a killing machine valuable?  Hell Yes It Is.  Is code you give away valuable? Yes, but you will you not make money from it.

So good code is not only going to become expense it will become a necessity soon.

You could also write your game in a non-Java language and then compile to bytecode. Doesn't stop decompilation, but most people would attempt to decompile your program into Java. So having it written in Ruby or Scala would throw them (and maybe even brake the decompiler if it's doing something non-Java).

OR you could write in LISP.  Then it doesn't matter too much if they can see the source.  Tongue

Lisp is awesome. I would use it far more if i was "permitted". As it was, my current work was a fight to get java rather than C.

LISP is awesome, but very few people can make heads-or-tails of it.

LOL (I assume you meant that as a joke)
