In the event that I actually make a patch that people want to buy (heh) does anyone have any ideas or suggestions for how to manage a key-access or password system for paid customers?
I know it would be relatively simple to have a hidden route object that takes in a code entered into a text box, which would then unlock the program. Of course, that same executeable would be unlockable with that same code, unless it "locked itself down" after the first access. I imagine there's much better ways of doing this, plus it would be nice (though not essential) to not have to make a change to each and every patch sold...
Any way of using a unique machine ID number? Or something with the system time?
Thanks for any ideas!
