The protection is not related to Mac adress, you have to do some complicated serial protection, and even the most complex one can be cracked, so dont spend too much on it.

Hi DjBrynte,

Please pm me on flowstone slack and I'll send it to you (for the latest alfa only since my 3.0.6. is not working). It has never been cracked. Bare in mind that you'll have to provide your clients a manual serial number after he buys from you or build a simple math automatic serial number generator on your site that sends serial after purchase.

Cheers.

you can try it, but with SM/FS you cannot do any stuff that won't be cracked in a minute, so it is pretty worthless to invest time into that. especially if it looks like its a copypasta solution.
if your plugin is good and half-assedly-copyprotected (like any solution in SM/FS) - it will be cracked and distrubuted for free and it will just burden your buyers with stupid shit.
do not fear piracy, it is nothing bad - you never lose sales by piracy.
read the thread above and make up your own mind about going into JUCE or whatever c/cpp subsys to make better copyprotections.

If it has been made in SM/FS and it has never been cracked, it was not worthwile to crack.

repeaded updating is the only crack protection, even u-he admits it, with his funneling serial checks through commonly used functions at random times
u-he even admits that it is futile and he does it only because of the feeling of "being ahead".

Synthmaker & Flowstone don't go well with effective copy protections.
1. bcs there are none
2. bcs a prebake system like flowstone is the worst place to introduce some topped up copy protection

so please think of your Users, not your Pirates.

ah i understand now, you want to have an easily crackable copy protection in your plug as a sign for if the plug is worthwhile enough to crack in 5 mins.
