Obfuscate this

For my CSC 435 project, one of our requirements is that we use a proprietary obfucsator to obfuscate our individual game dll files so that other students, etc cannot decompile them.

The whole escapade (especially the B.S. I have to go through to get the app, assuming I'm not barking up the wrong tree; the professor obviously didn't feel it was important enough to add a link to the spec. Maybe that's in the checklist too) is frustrating, given that it's not a simple download either; it's a load of register and wait forever for your crippled evaluation copy.

Oh well. It's crap like this that's keeping this project from finally being over. I wonder if Clint will make us jump through more hoops for the Java version. I'm sure he'll add at least 50 more requirements to those of us that did Chess, because obviously it wasn't already enough work for us.
