Im getting F12'd and other hacked problems

Post by TriggerHappyTime » Sun Mar 30, 2014 6:58 pm

I have been getting F12 shutdowns and random functionality of message board etc.
Last time I went on I was able to somewhat communicate with an admin. who said
something about (haxtor?)and that there was no need to reinstall as my client was
ok.When restarting a bit ago in the start-up transcript area it said MD5 error,
removing offending file.Can anyone tell me what the prognosis of this is and
if I can/should do anything?Admin. said the problem is known and a fix is pending.
I appreciate the time given for all this and will wait patiently to get my tank
therapy back in order.

there is not enough info there to tell anything. Can you please list the exact issues you are having with as much detail as possible, including your OS, computer type, Video Card, lag time, and common Frames per Second.

The MD5 thing was probably just us removing an out of date map cache, it happens as maps get updated.

Thank you for taking time to reply to my problem.I apologize for taking so long to return but once the problem was solved,I saw no reason
to come looking for a response.I saw that you had responded to my problem while dropping in to see what the current event news was.
I haven't had any further issues as before,and I am back in the saddle again.Thanks again Jeff M and all those who have committed their
time to making this game so fun and addicting.I will look forward to meeting you on the battlefield.

No doubt he is referring to the hacker we where having trouble with a few days ago. He was crashing clients along with giving himself a variation of super-flags and different combinations of them.

TriggerHappyTime, make sure you specify exactly what is going on in your post in detail because if you don't we can't help you out. :)

hi ..

I was just driving around watching some Flowers and Clouds @ A*A Bridge Crossing ..

AND THEN ..

Someone was jumping up and down on our [red] Pad and with every jump he got
the green Flag and made a Point .. So i shoot him ..After that my client froze ..

My System froze [Hate it to hard Reset my Baby]
I got that on RIOT as well .. and on Easy Tanks Super Server
Running around alone on a HIX map and all was fine.

Got someone else similar 'Things' while playing?

Question 2 ..Was that a EvIL-hAcK and if so HOW it was made ?

I understand playing around with 'Stuff' what brings me to Question 3 :

Is there a way to provide a Map for humans that like to play that way
so others can just drive around and watch the Flowers and the Clouds?

You can just kill the BZFlag process by switching to a terminal with Ctrl-Alt-F1. (killall -9 bzflag) The system itself wasn't froze, just BZFlag.
