hey all,

I have developed a flash game. I am trying to prevent cheaters from submitting fake high scores. To do this, I record ever action they make in the game, and when the game is over I send all these actions and their high score to the server.

On the server side I have made a C# application that reads in the actions they made and their high score. The C# application then loads the flash game and recreates what they did in their game. At the end of the recreation, if the score they claim they had matches they score that their actions result in, I submit the score to the database. If it doesn't match, I know they cheated (ie. edited a memory address) and I don't submit the score to the database.

That all works great.

However, the C# appllcation is just an EXE file that reads in parameters. I'm trying to figure out a way to integrate everything so that when the user playing the flash game ends their game, the C# code will immediatley get the values and determine if they were cheating. If they were not cheating, it'll thank the user for playing and forward them back to the game section of the website.

I'm not sure how to do this. The swf file will be embedded in an asp/php/html page.... can I use asp/php/html to pass data to an EXE file on the server and then read the results passed back from the EXE?

If that's not possible, any other ideas how this can be done?

Thanks so much for any help you can give!!
