Hi,
I often noticed the server warning that someone is cheating - Just curious - which cheats exist for this game? I really don't want to know the cheatcodes but I'd like to know what kind of cheats those guys are using. Why is that server warning not more specific (what cheat, which player..).

Bye

Its just lag, the sentence cheating detected should have been worded differently.

Hi,



You see - CHEATING HAS BEEN DETECTED , well it's not really cheating as such it's players joining server with higher ping rate than permited , normally after a period of time this player you will see has "left the game" that's because he has been auto kicked by the server - if auto kick is enabled , if the server after time begins to fill up with players this starts to cause what is called 'lag' ie: the server time is lagging in time . so it's not really cheating, it's an inappropriate term for higher than normal ping rates .

Hope this explanation has given you a better understanding of online play .

Regards .

Bartman .

If you go into your FB files and use Notepad to open file i18n/netmessages , you will find all of the HUD messages listed.

The messages that you refer to are listed under user_cheating

I have changed mine to:

user_cheating1 {0} is lagging behind.
user_cheating2 {0} is causing lag.
user_cheating3 {0} needs a better system.

in order to get rid of the 'Cheating has been detected' message.

While you are at it you could change a few of the others and get rid of the spelling mistakes!

Cheers!

By using those modded net messages, you will also be told who exactly is triggering the cheat warning, as opposed to the original message, which doesn't name names.

Then you can politely refer the offender to their local cable provider, and teamkill their a$$ off the server.

If your computer gets bad connection with the server your position dont update so often and that make you look like a UFO warping away. Some players often get bad connections when they have an enemy on their six, and can warp away from that defensive position.
