I just made my first game which I have baked but with simple browser add on I was able to revert the process and view my source code (not to mention the impact source) I am guessing all the games done in impact can be reverted at this point in time.

Why not use google's closure compliler to obscure the source code?

Just paste your code and choose advanced when compiling - most of it will be unreadable - but you will need probably to use online API for it to work

other way to obscure your code is to use the uglifier

This one works on its own.

I agree that the current bake scripts are not "good enough" at obfuscation for a game that's going to get a lot of traction.

It would also be great if after baking, there were no global variables available. It's quite easy for anyone with a little bit of know-how to just do something like...;

I know its a drawback of doing stuff in JavaScript but it is annoying that anyone can revert the process - and basically steal the code - not to mention the impact framework for which people paid $99.

Does anyone know a fool-proof way of protecting what you have created using impact?

No offence to Jerczu, but if I were Dominic, I'd remove this topic. If only because it's bringing light to something none of us particularly want to be known by others.

The closest you'll get to fool-proof baking is compiling it into the source of an application rather than having it hosted online in a browser.

No offence taken

Well anyone who has a little to do with web development will be able to do it so there is no mystery unfolding here.

But yeah if Dominic sees it as a problem yeah remove the post...

Also putting together new baking script would be nice.

There was a lengthy discussion along this line a few months ago.

You don't need to go to such lengths to get a copy of the engine, if you know where to look. Suffice to say, some people are being quite careless with baking, which annoys me no end.
