    Hello!
    I'm supposed to create a track for a client. The client requires that noone should be able to extract the track model from the package.
    The "rF2_Packaging_Tutorial.pdf" says:
    "A cool thing here is that you could put some kind of “Created By” info (let’s say on the loading screen of a track) on your creation, and encrypt the mas files of your component so they can’t be altered."
    But I cannot find anything about encryption in the MAS File Utility.
    Some older forum threads suggest sending content to the game developers, is that how it works?

    Hello except
    Marcel Offermans who can encrypt files.
    I am awaiting a response from him. someone else does it with maybe more availability without resentment with Marcel :)
