Well it worked for Raven Shield. Have over 1000 replys to this post and we will probably have PunkBuster addopted by Ghost Recon. This would be great. No more Cheating in game! I will play any game as good as Ghost Recon for many more years if it ever turns cheat-free. PunkBuster is basically the only working Anticheat, so why not support it?

For everyone that doesn't know what PunkBuster does here you go.

This information is directly from http://www.evenbalance.com/

Major Features in PunkBuster
(some editions of PunkBusterT do not have all of these features)

*Real-time scanning of memory by PB Client on players' computers searching for known hacks/cheats
*Throttled two-tiered background auto-update system using multiple Internet Master Servers to provide end-user security ensuring that no false or corrupted updates can be installed on players' computers
*Frequent status reports (highly encrypted) are sent to the PB Server by all players and the PB Server raises a violation when necessary which causes the offending player to be removed from the game and all other players are informed of the violation
*PB Admins can also manually remove players from the game for a specified number of minutes or permanently ban if desired
*PB Servers can optionally be configured to randomly check player settings looking for known exploits of the game engine
*PB Admins can request actual screenshot samples from specific players and/or can configure the PB Server to randomly grab screenshot samples from players during gameplay
*An optional "bad name" facility is provided so that PB Admins can prevent players from using offensive player names containing unwanted profanity or racial slurs
*Search functions are provided for PB Admins who wish to search player's keybindings and scripts for anything that may be known to exploit the game
*The PunkBusterT Player Power facility can be configured to allow players to self-administer game servers when the Server Administrator is not present entirely without the need for passwords
*PB Servers have an optional built-in mini http web server interface that allows the game server to be remotely administered via a web browser from anywhere over the Internet

I doubt there will be any more updates to GR. Plus, cheats really aren't that widespread if you play on some of the more respectable servers. Even if cheaters do wander onto the good servers, they are usually caught and banned.


But hey, if you want to try, go ahead.

If there was one thing id like to see added to GR now PB support would be it, cheating in clan matches is the worst problem. Just dont think there is enough of a GR community these days for them to do it?

XyZspineZyX
06-18-2003, 12:34 PM
ANY acp program gets my support. At present, we're using KidBu$ter and it seems to work as advertised. Our Ladder (clanbase) is on the brink of making this program part of the ladder and more teams are refusing to play without it.

There is alot of paranoia within the (our) GR community and KB seems to have alayed that. It's about time UBI listened to its customers, who cares if GR is a small community compared to RvS? Don't we ALL deserve a little after-sales support? I think it's just professional courtesy to look after the people who buy their games and provide decent ACP for them.

Rant over. I think PUNKBUSTER can only be a good thing and wish the developers all the success if they decide to go ahead with it.

XyZspineZyX
06-18-2003, 09:06 PM
www.BattalionCommand.com (http://www.BattalionCommand.com) has adapted KidBu$ter as well. And it has worked as advertised.

That www.BattalionCommand.com (http://www.BattalionCommand.com) also keeps stats and for those that do not think cheating is a problem...check the stats from before and after KidBu$ter on the web site.

If you play on any of the 4 dedicated servers for BC-SAR you will get your stats recorded, so sign-up and reserver your handle today!

06-20-2003, 09:34 AM
The idea is great and I support it but... PunkBuster usually supports games that the engine is easy to mod and understand (Until now it only supported Quake3 engine games and just now it went for Unreal2 Engine. Those 2 engines cover many games. Selecting an engine that works only for one game isn't a good idea.

I have been playing GR since the release. You tell me you have never run into a cheater since you have played. I really want to laugh but I won't. Do you play on a LAN or something. I doesn't matter if it a "mature" server or not, there will always be cheaters. We just need to get rid of them all so you will never have that thought in the back of your mind, "How did he just kill me?"

I've been playing since the demo, but I have never encountered anyone who I just knew was cheating.



Maybe if you guys got off UBI, and started using ASE to find some respectable dedicated servers, you'd escape the cheaters too.

Lets all keep Ghost Recon above the ashes and keep it alive for all to enjoy without Cheaters, I vow to shoot every cheater that enters a game...(even if its on the I'm with). "Cheaters beware of the wolf"

Ours is one of the most popular servers on ASE and we catch 'em all the time. There are several other clans on ASE that are catching cheaters. In fact several have been booted off of TCZ for it.

I have been playing Ghost Recon for a long time, almost since the beginning. I play under the tag DevilDogTodd. The cheating in Ghost Recon is boarding on pathetic.

It doesn't matter if it is UBI or ASE. The cheats are everywhere. The only reason these guys get away with it is because not enough people call the cheaters out during the game. We have all seen and suspected the cheats.

It is a shame to see Ghost Recon dwindle as far as participants. GR is one of the best games ever made and cheaters are ruining the game.

Clans are absolutely the worst for cheating. It amazes me how many clan members cheat and is one reason I have not become a clan member, even though I have been asked many times by some very good clans.

Guys and girls, if your cheating....stop. Hopefully these programs that detect cheaters will become more prevelant and the cheats (people that are too big a pussies to play well on their own) will disappear.

I support PunkBuster, although I've never tried it. It would be nice if it was easier to use.

It would also be nice if people would realise the game engine sucks, and there are crappy mods (DAGRM4.8) that make the game really crappy. Such mods make for weird "goings-on". It doesn't take long for people to start accusing others of cheating. I would know. Never seen or touched a cheat, but am the 2nd most accused person for cheating ever. My friend reserved #1.

would be nice to have Punkbuster running properly. I'd like to see the excuses people would come up with then.

I think I am completely done with playing on any League/Ladder. Nothing but stress comes from matching. 75% of the clans on certain leagues don't know how to play the game. I have played online GR since the release of the game. It seems I keep gettin worse at the game everytime I play. I want an working Anticheat before I ever play again.

The COG Network has recently released our Gameplay Accountability Software called 'Accountable'. The software was created to maintain our commitment to the community, that being a fair and professional atmosphere.

Accountable currently features support for Raven Shield and Ghost Recon but will eventually support all games hosted at the COG.

So, if you can't wait for GR Punkbuster, or want to go to a professionally driven, mature ladder, try the COG.
