Have a problem Exporting/Building a game

#1 Post by Maokun » Mon Jan 08, 2018 7:26 pm

Hi !
I have a doubt. It is about when the game's export options, I select the option in which it is dedicated to the market. Everything is exported without errors, but when I extract the rar, the scripts of the game appears in the Game folder, like all the dialogs (script.rpy, gui, etc). I have seen completed projects and it is not the same as how it is exported with RenPy. How can I do it? Because i dont like to get exposed all the dialogs, gui, etc.

Sorry for my bad english, hope i explained well.

You can use the Archive function, found at the bottom of options.rpy

Just to be clear, the archive method is not a proper solution, but a method of prevention, an obsfucation.
You could call it a deterrent.

If you want better asset protection, you will need to add encryption or similar, which Ren'Py does not natively include.

Possibly, but it is not something I have looked into.

All I know is that to do it, you will need to use third party tools as Ren'Py doesn't have anything of that sort natively.

The archival option is reasonably successful though by the looks of it.

DRM isn't always the best choice anyway. This reddit thread has some useful information:
