Stronghold Lock Box

Author File Description
Dirus
File Details
Used with: Stronghold
INTRODUCTION
============

This program locks your custom made Stronghold maps. This program does not unlock maps. Once a map is locked you can not edit it. This prevents others from opening up your map in the editor and getting all the juicy details on your scenario before playing it. This also prevents people from tricking the map editor into editing their saves (although I won't say how, it is easy to do).

At the time I am writing this there is no way to unlock a locked map so make sure to always keep around an unlocked version. (And no I'm not working on adding that option.)


DOCUMENTATION
=============

Simply start the program and drag and drop a map file onto the program. The old map file will not be directly changed, instead a new file will be created with the same name as the old map but with "(locked)" appended to the end. Of course you can rename the file if you would like.

To quit either press escape when the window is active or right click and select the quit option; the always on top option is also there. To see the about window you can either double click in the window or press the "?" key.


DISCLAIMER
==========

Stronghold Lock Box comes with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY. Having said that, this program seems to work perfectly. All maps I have locked with this program have worked perfectly.

Hi Dirus
This sounds wonderful. It's going to be especially useful in any upcoming competitions.

Thanks for uploading it :)

Wonderful. I like that I can still keep a copy of what my original file was, So I can edit it later

Excellent utility! Before you lock a map, make sure you have a backup or you will not be able to tweak it!!!
