    Hello hive community! I know the question I am about to ask is asked a lot and I searched throughout the internet for some solutions but I can't seem to find any. I plan on making a RPG map, I've done some imaginative tweeks to avoid cheating such as trick variables, texts and such. However, other imaginative people might think that someone put their imagination at work while protecting their map... So I wanted to ask if you know any solutions to hiding the war3map.j or making it uneditable or making the map crash during deprotection or any possible to way to avoid non-freakin MPQ hacker masters to touch the script? Thanks in advance!

    The principle is : if Warcraft 3 reads it, so can MPQs.
    So far what I remembered.

    Yeah, you just fool yourself protecting a map (and the boatload of 12yo that would so LOVE to steal from your map).
    But hey, because of the inside paranthesis part, its totally worth it.

    Edit: here this should guide you a bit:
