I would like to have a copy of the code. Or at least the map-code. Would the admin allow it?

Hi ryacko,

Sure, you can have a copy of the FLA's, just get the URL for the flash file and replace "swf" with "fla", e.g...

  /a/swf/world.fla


I don't mind anyone playing with it, but if you are going to be making alterations like getting it to auto update, please keep the number of server requests down, as I do have to pay for bandwidth and don't like the idea of some people getting an unfair advantage.

In regards to the rest of the site (PHP), I don't mind giving out bits of source code, but under the condition that you inform me immediately of any security problems or have suggestions for improvements.

I do like the "Open Source" methods, which allow other people can learn from me, but in return it would be nice that I get something out of it - like learning a new way to approach a problem.

:-)

Bah, who would need an auto-update? I prefer clicking repeatedly while waiting for someone to make their move!

Well, if anything, you should be the one pointing out security problems sine I know barely anything about PHP. Which reminds me, is there comments in the code?

Hi ryackoman,

The code is fully commented - more so than most programmers would consider healthy.

As to security problems, I have covered all the ones I know of and these are re-checked each time any changes are made.

However it is possible that I could have missed one, and if you happen to see it, then that's where I should be notified (instead of it being exploited).

Take a look at how Firefox / Mozilla work... although they can afford a bounty of 269 ($500) for each exploit someone discovers (notice most people will re-donate their bounty back to Mozilla). Unfortunately I don't have any money for a bounty, but your name will be shown in the forum so you can show off to your friends / family / co-workers / future employers / employees / customers / etc.
