    How do I get the source code ?

    I need the source code for copywright purposes. Anybody know how to get it? If possible, a step by step answer would be great. Otherwise, any ideas would be useful too.

    Thanks

    The source code for what? Your game? The mfa is the source code.

    Yes my game. Everything is java right? So does that mean there should be a way to look at the source code in Eclipse?

    No, MMF2 is written in C++. The mfa file you made is the source code.

    So not on Visual Studio either then? Sorry, I am still new to programming. It's just that I don't think the copywrite place is going to accept a .mfa file.

    What copyright place are you talking about, specifically?

    The MFA file you made your game with has no code in it, it has MMF2 byte-code, which is an MMF2 specific language that MMF2 understands. Your events, which contain conditions and actions, are your programming code. MMF2 is not a scripting language, it is a programming language where the code is events.

    U. S. Copyright Office
    http://www.copyright.gov/

    Thanks for explaining it to me. I guess I will try to explain that to them. I hope it doesn't matter that I used a different tool to create a program. I think I should be able to still get a copyright.

    No. In general, registration is voluntary. Copyright exists from the moment the work is created.
    Why do you need to register then?

    Re: How do I get the source code ?

    This was under the website's FAQ. There seems to be some legal benifits to registering.

    Do I have to register with your office to be protected?
    No. In general, registration is voluntary. Copyright exists from the moment the work is created. You will have to register, however, if you wish to bring a lawsuit for infringement of a U.S. work. See Circular 1, Copyright Basics, section “Copyright Registration.”

    Why should I register my work if copyright protection is automatic?
    Registration is recommended for a number of reasons. Many choose to register their works because they wish to have the facts of their copyright on the public record and have a certificate of registration. Registered works may be eligible for statutory damages and attorney's fees in successful litigation. Finally, if registration occurs within 5 years of publication, it is considered prima facie evidence in a court of law. See Circular 1, Copyright Basics, section “Copyright Registration” and Circular 38b, Highlights of Copyright Amendments Contained in the Uruguay Round Agreements Act (URAA), on non-U.S. works.

    Well, if your work is really valuable/important and you think people would try to claim it as theirs, then sure. I think the MFA file would be fine - just remember to bring your MMF2-capable laptop to any court cases
