I’ve been working on a little platform to distribute paid scripts. It uses a classic serial system so you can recieve a code or buy through (for now) a very simple store. Using RawIO, and a valid serial it downloads the said script from a PHP webpage. The idea behind protecting it, is that in order for sombody to pirate it, they must make at least one sale. And updates are only available to valid serials. Useful for things that update frequently.
Let’s say you distributed an admin mod, you could also add the option to buy plugin packs for small amounts. You may update these plugins as you go, and the updates will only be available to valid serial users. If a person is caught releasing, they’re serials are blanked.
It could turn out to be something different altogether, maybe only requiring an adfly link for download, or simply just being a way of downloading and previewing scripts on the fly without having to restart (for some).
I’ve made a few test scripts, a basic platform, is this a good idea? If everybody hates the idea of paid scripts, what about scripts that only require adfly links, or if nobody likes that idea. Would it not be great to download and add addons on the fly?
