I think a 5 pack can have more sales/profit than a 10 pack. The reason is if someone finds 2 of the files matching their needs, they will have no problem to purchase a 5 pack. But to purchase a 10 pack, more number of files should convince the buyer which will considreably reduce the chance of sale. So I think only 5 (or similar) packs have more chance to harm other files :D

I would like to know how much would be the price for a 5 pack, $30?

I just made a new avatar with my ingeneousness and stuff. And I just now noticed my blog post badge.

Aw, Seriously you should change this avatar. You already know why: nuisance

After all what’s the job of a reviewer? Check the file against errors(including preview).

+1 Reviewers needs to do something (Holding the file, contacting support etc) if the error is due to the system. But if the error resides inside preview swf or html (only in preview/not on source) and not noticeable by others then, I think the author deserves the pain of waiting until updated.

Uggghhhh, can we please have an authors only area? What on earth do you think buyers will feel when they see this?

Authors only section needed but not for this BAD reason :D
Even that area also needs to be clean and respectful, otherwise…

But if a swf is decompiled wouldn’t the culprit be able to tell from the code that the file employs domain-locking? An alternative solution is to use non-interactive video demos. They seem to be the most secure method of protecting ones files.

+1 – 1000000

Non-interactive? Worrying too much about something means we do too much of unnecessary works which results nothing. Not implementing simple solutions means we are lazy. The efficient way stays middle.

For me it doesn’t takes more than 10 minutes to secure preview files from direct usage. Secondly we can’t do much about decompiling (if encryption fails) and at the same time, the source files created by that way will not be easy to use. No worries. :D

what do you mean?... I’m talking about lifting the files off the preview, so they just use the SWF and XML and use the files ‘as is’ and add their own content and customise through changing setting in the XML . So a watermark would make the preview unusable.

I do 2 things on my preview:

1. Check the domain name (using new LocalConnection().domain()) and if it doesn’t matches with activeden (and a few which Envato uses), the file will not just move forward to main code.

2. For the preview, just don’t use xml at all. I just add a field array inside the fla which has same content as xml in the source package.

ActiveDen guys… do you think we should start watermarking out Flash previews? to stop those who just use our preview files? Just a simple semi transparent ActiveDen logo in the top left or something could work… maybe this should be a requirement

Or just checking the domain name before running the file should be helpful. Isn’t that enough?
