Did anyone try to downgrade flash client from 10+ to 7x? i tought it could be very good for an OT SERVER to be able to
1. run in browser
2. have flash so bots wouldnt be there for bit of time i guess?

I've been able to patch certain code like hiding the focus message when you click away,
but it's not really feasible to do those types of changes.

You would be better off creating a new client that uses WebGL.

Have you testing editing the decompilated flash files? That would be cool. I have not tested it yet but would be nice to try someday.

but what about WebGL could it provide good anti bot protection?

They don't decompile properly enough to do that. None of the paid software would.

Flash is dead. Nothing about WebGL would provide anti-bot protection other than there are no bots currently made for it.
Same goes for Flash, but I think there are actually bots for the Flash client, thought they are not very advanced.

how much effort would webGL require and what about virtual box of some sort with javascript?

It would require porting OTClient with Emscripten or developing one from scratch. Both very difficult, but easier than getting the flash client to work with extensive modifications.

There's some work being done for a Unity client, maybe that will have WebGL support.

As long as that person is willing to do a $10,000 job for $5, sure.

what about obfuscating my exe into external program in msvc that creates an additional window wrap around it with mabye mousepointercheck system and processlist sender? as gm i could verify if he is for example using dll injection.
