[quote:2fbx51ze]Saying you haven't locked an engine when you have not released C3 which has new security features is not exactly answering the question.
We can't lock people's engines. We can only remove the ability for them to use paid licensing features (eg unlimited events, export options etc). This is exactly how Construct 2 works, and we do on occasion revoke users licenses. Most common circumstance to do that is when the customer does a credit card charge back on their purchase as the payment was fraudulent.
[quote:2fbx51ze]Can you lock a specific engine on C3?
We can revoke people's access to paid features and make them fall back to free edition, exactly the same as Construct 2. And I imagine, in a very similar way to how other game engines do it as well.
[quote:2fbx51ze]If there is no way for Scirra to view a capx or in some way add a tag to the exported projects we produce I sure don't see how you will enforce your license?
Well, we don't. You're talking about stopping people sharing licenses in some capacity which is very difficult for us to stop. As I mentioned before, we never intend to spoil legitimate paying customers experience of Construct.
If we look back at Construct 2, there have been a handfull of times when we've revoked paying customers licenses. This specifically happened when we saw the license being used thousands of times over a short period. The way we deal with this is email the customer a new license, then revoke their old one.
Are you happy with those answers?
