I've made a gambling game and i want an external file to record scores, then they can send the scores to me through some sort of file. I need the file to be only read by me, as they could change the scores. Is this possible with dark basic.

GRATEFUL FOR ANY SUGGESTION AND HELP

THANX AND CHEERS

like indi said but encode your scores (say square them and subtract 92 if they are over 300 for example or add on a rnd of 1000 that is selected with randomize score, any trick like that) and stick a couple of numbers in the score list that would be illegal for valid scores, like -123 or 98765, that way you can make a simple program to extract scores and check that the file has not been altered, or just read up on code algorythms, some of the realy simple ones are almost impossible to crack without the key , cheers.
