    Shockwave questions

    Cherax79 Level 1
      Hello.
      I have some questions about shockwave game played in a browser (lets name it "game.dcr"):

      1.Is it possible to disassemble / decompile "game.dcr" ?
      2. (If 1. then) Are there any methods to avoid this ?
      3. Is it possible to write other game ("virus.dcr"), replace it in any temp files to "game.dcr" and mess up in files which are used by original game?

          > 1. Is "game.dcr" dowloaded by client machine (browser tmp files) ?

          Yes

          > 2. Is it possible to download from server whole dcr file ?

          Yes - see 1. Also, preloadNetThing/downloadNetThing can be used to
          download a DCR (or any other file type)

          > 3. (If 1. or 2.then) Is it possible to disassemble / decompile "game.dcr" ?

          To an extent. All assets *except* scripts are retrievable.

          > 4. (If 3. then) Are there any methods to avoid this ?

          None that will stop someone really determined and who knows what they're
          doing. But again - scripts are unobtainable.

          No.
