Another thought about modified games: Scenario: Someone who has not bought your production visits the home of someone who has bought and modified your production. The visitor thinks, "Those game sounds are really terrible. This is certainly a game I will not buy." If he had visited someone who purchased your game and did not modify it, and he really was impressed, you've got another customer.

Hi Jim,

Yeah, I do know what you mean and understand your point of view.
That's my feeling as well. If I wanted the game to be modded or to
allow end users to customize it I would make available the proper
tools or ability to do so.

Since I don't intend Mysteries of the Ancients to be modified, to be a
stand alone game, etc I'm going to have to begin encrypting sounds and
taking care that people can't modify it without serious effort. That
way I know that what I create stays in tact and the game I sell my
customers is the one they are playing.
