Is it possible to hide the contents of a file? Want to release a mod but...

i dont want anyone to look inside the contents of the files i have and then use it for there mods.

Basically me and this other guy are creating a mod for a game. Our staple of the mod is how many enemies we have spawning. He has released his latest version whilst ive been testing and changing variables for weeks trying to get the most enemies i can.

The most he has been able to achieve is about 30 or so. I managed to get them into the hundreds last night.

I dont want to release my mod and then have him download mine and see what i have changed and then add it to his. Because honestly his mod has a extra feature that he came up with and im not gonna add it to mine. So basically if he steals my files, he will ultimately have the better mod.

TLDR; How do i have a file's contents hidden so noone can look inside but still be able to play on the game.

Sorry for any confusion.

This. Make an uber mod, with his extra feature and your hundereds of enemies and my business sense we will be millionaires.

I wouldnt say nemesis, but i asked him for help in the past about changing animations for walking enemies to fast running ones. Because he managed to change the running enemies into walkers. I had a beta version of the mod ready, next thing you know he releases a half assed version of runners just to get it out before me. The animations were all ****'d up but he did it in spite just to one up me.

Im sure he will steal my variables and other files i added and pass them off as his. I really want to release it to the community because the game is insane now. But i also want credit and i want it to stay on my mod.

Sounds selfish but it is what it is. Ive been working on this **** for weeks.

Put tiny little pointless things in your code that dont affect preformance or anything at all. That way if he copies it you can be like "THIS GUY IS A PHOTOCOPIER"

Surely there's a way to mess with it somehow. What's the game?

Is this just an ini/settings file or something?
