Re: Abusive players...

@Zehra -Multiple flags - for example having one flag listed, but apparently having the WG flag at the same, time, being able to change direction in midair, or temporarily break the fall not to land on a bulletstorm underneath. This is a classic cheat falling in the semi-subtle category as it is easi...

Re: Abusive players...

That would be if the server has been configured to capture the personal chats, which is not the default. Also, i have seen his behavior being all good, only to drop in a snap, and he is usually playing well around admins or regged users, but not so much when anons are the only ones. Hes twofaced, li...

Re: Abusive players...

Green, Him being seen with multiple flags not being cheating?
Other players asking me if i can do something about him, as they are being cussed out in private, just like Gauss behaves?
I'll catch him and get you a video some time... will that do for you?
Come on...

Abusive players...

Jack Napier is quite a nasty player - have a look at the kind of abuse he is spewing at other players as they kill him.
He needs to be banned out - this is not the kind of players that we need in here...

Re: admin client

This has nothing to do with the incident you are referring to, Constitution. Purple and many others know that I (and others) have been talking about this since a very long time (years), and the need for something more than gut-feeling or in many cases equally swishy-swashy observations to base the d...

What you saying - rephrased into plain language: Ain't gonna happen - won't do it. Suffer it.

Re: admin client

JeffM, Thanks for confirming the validity of my points. I am not asking or suggesting unreasonable things, only that some of what has already been implemented, and that other known data that will not affect gameplay by it's display, can be turned on during normal gameplay, as a stopgap solution. You...

Re: admin client

Your response pretty much nails it, why people give up on suggesting things for the BZ, and why fewer and fewer players hang around. I've been in engineering long enough to know that: You can't foresee unknown bugs, yet to be detected, and as a result, you can't preempt them, until you see them, and...

Re: admin client

Cheat prevention can help, but can never replace cheat detection, as cheats often depends on bugs not yet found, or client behaviors that goes outside what the server has capabilities of detecting. As for information not being there? Well, i beg to differ - if the information about shots fired, spee...

Re: admin client

So in essence you are saying - You're stuffed with what's there, and unless the sky falls in at some point in the future, such things might be implemented before the heat death of the universe?

Not gonna ask or suggest anything again.

Re: admin client

So, again, having read what you write, an admin mode in the client, that indicates oddities, or can provide specific metrics on request for a player, by the admin, would be a beneficial instrument on cracking down on the last bits, that only humans can detect, through observation during gameplay. Fo...

Cheats...

What about a public blacklist of cheat servers, cheaters and corrupt admins that could be regulated by the higher-ranking registered players? Submissions to the list would be controlled as well so that noone is wrongfully accused. However, a dedicated investigation and maintenance team would have t...

Map..

Never saw a credit, but that might be me missing it.

It's not spazzy's map tho! he's got nothing to do with this, other than making the map. Wait... It's not Spazzy's map, but Spazzy made the map...? WTF? Think you misunderstood me..

i would boycott that loser's server.. AND keep his callsign on my mind. if someone is that low to give themselves superflags on their server, they are liable to try and cheat elsewhere too. Now, that's the point of this. The looser in this case happens to be the nick "dfwrestler91", running a copy ...

Cheating admins?! What to do?

Sorry for a crosspost under "Players", but this forum seems more appropriate. What to do with an admin that is a registered player, and openly cheats on his own server, by continously giving himself the GM flag immediately after spawn. (no flags listed in his flaghistory, whatsoever, mine and others...
