Protection via StarForce Cloud
|The SDK is generated and as a result, the debug version of the protection library and auxiliary files are loaded onto the developer’s computer
|The protection is integrated into the gaming client code and the gaming server code. After the operation completes, the developer gets the compiled gaming client and the compiled gaming server. The gaming server does not require any processing and can be put into operation. The gaming client should be protected on the StarForce server, since many protection functions are substituted with stubs in the debug version of the protection library
|The gaming client is being protected. This step includes the following substeps
|he files added to the protection project in Protection Studio are substituted with the new files that contain the protection library calls
|The functions that need to be protected are selected and their protection method is specified
|Protection options are specified
|The files are protected
|The developer creates the installation package and tests the application. It is necessary to test the operation of the protected application to make sure that the protection does not adversely affect the application performance (size, speed, etc.), It is also necessary to check the operation of the protection functions that were substituted with stubs in the debug version of the protection library (protection of application and read-only files against modification , protection against debuggers, etc.)
