The resource injector can only replace placeholders in .jar files, this means it will replace the placeholders on compiled .class files inside the jar.

We also offer an optional DRM system which will check with our website if a user is banned and if its license is valid.

The following placeholders are available, at the moment:

%%QTECH_USER_ID%% - Downloader’s user ID
