Re: Bit on cheating: was: Re: Introductions

I suppose you could imagine a scheme where the server created some
key part of the data verification/transmission algorithm on-the-fly.
It could send this to the clients as both source and dynamically
linked binary - thus maintaining GPL compliance.  However, the end
users would only be in posession of the code for the duration of the
session - which wouldn't give them enough time to understand the source
code, compile it and install it into the tool before the game is over.

So - could you write code to generate a verification/transmission
library on-the-fly that would be sufficiently different from the
one you sent the last time?
