comment Can I use asymmetric encryption for more powerful write-protection?
@izaera The database is static and would only ever change in bugfixes or updates, so that key wouldn't be anywhere in the distribution at all. No signing of any file would ever happen on any machine but my own.

comment Can I use asymmetric encryption for more powerful write-protection?
@StephenTouset I don't need to make it literally impossible. If it has to be modified in-memory, that for me is reasonably prohibitively difficult. It's a single-player game, I just don't want to make it so trivial to cheat that editing a database file is sufficient, which far more people are capable of or willing to do than edit in-memory.
