When people download my game I don`t want them to have accesses to the sprite folders or any of the game data folders.Is there a way to compress the data so they can`t get into the folders so they can`t use the game data for there own?

I try to click on crate encrypted data but it only included the audio and nothing else.On XP it dose not have a box you can click on so it will include the RTP data like VX.

"Create Encrypted Archive" includes the audio ?_?

Which version are you using?

As for including the RTP. You'll have to manually add the RTP resources you are using to the project, unfortunately.

Since when did a maker included Audio in encryption???


or do you mean you see the Audio folder in the game folder? if that's it, that's because the encrypted archive contains both Data and Graphics folders...


Also your title says something about "without RTP data", but I don't see anything about it on your post

I ment the RTP data as in the data i imported into the game like the sprites, tiles, audio, ex not the XP RTP data when i try to add the just the XP RTP data it gives me a error

when i compress the game data and click the encryption it already contains the data and graphics?

I'm not sure about in XP, quite a long time since I did one (coz I never bought that)...


what error do you encounter when you try to add RTP data anyway?

Well, you can't really stop them from doing that... sadly, that's the reality... even if you encrypt them, one search and they can decrypt it... As one of my friends said, if at least one program can open a file, it's never "protected"...


anyway, it seems like the only way is to manually add them yourself, or force your friends to download the RTP...

I ment the RTP data as in the data i imported into the game like the sprites, tiles, audio, ex not the XP RTP data when i try to add the just the XP RTP data it gives me a error
then it isn't the RTP... RTP means the Run Time Packages included with the makers...


anyway, have you actually tried to test the game out on another computer and see if it worked after compression???

well, you could develop your own encrypting mechanism... so as to keep normal people from hacking it...


as far as totally preventing people from stealing the data, as long as the data exists, you can't actually do that...

There was a tool here somewhere for "encrypting" your game, I just don't know if it works for XP... try looking for Anti RGSS decrypter

I THINK I have a slightly better grasp on drawing my maps now... sorta. I still need to figure out how to draw a city of sorts. I've only got the abstract going so far.
