Greetings everyone,
I am currently making a game and i have some hidden secrets in it that are supposed to be unlocked during gameplay, sadly you are able to just open up the graphics or audio folders and find the files containing said secrets, such as pictures in PNG format etc.

i searched the internet and saw that some games managed to do hide these resources, but found no clue on how to achieve it.

i ttried compressing the data in various files like .zip and .rar but then the game itself couldnt find them anymore either :/

does anyone have an idea how to hide those files?

PS: if i compress the game into a EXE file it just extracts the contents (like the graphics folder, audio folder etc), functioning basically like an instalation file.

You have to encrypt your game, when you compress it. The audio folder will still be available, but the graphics folder will be hidden.
