I was flying on a server with map icons and external views on. At some point I looked on the map and saw three planes moving extremely fast on the map. I cycled through the external views and first of them was indeed flying very fast close to the water, second one was doing the same but was invisible, third one was visible but moving backwards http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif
I repeatedly communicated this to all people on server and strange enough got no answer http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif
Is this a common cheat? Though I played the game offline from the time of original il2, I'm a rookie to online pleasures...

Heh.

I think I'm falling right into this one but I just can't help but answer the question seriously...

Those three guys were lagging out. The resulting 'warping' looks really weird. The invisible guy was actually underwater (the camera won't go underneathe terrain).

It could also be that they had inadvertently disconnected. I've noticed this sometimes when playing with just a couple of friends. One of my mate's PC locks up sometimes and it takes some time before we get a "X has left the game message" - in the meantime, if we look externally at his plane, it's often flying backwards, semi-underground etc.

This could also be why there was no response to your query - they couldn't respond because they'd lost comms as well.

Might be this, because I noticed these ufos were flying in some unexpected directions, oh nice, I'm relieved http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

i have seen what u have seen, and the game went fubar. seen it several times with just the squad in there and warlock was hosting. suddenly, warlock said his game went south. about 10 sec's later, flaktrap's plane was headin to outer space, and warhawk's plane was actin like a plowshear moving backwards.

I was quite bored and impatient for a coop last night. So at HyperLobby, I joined an open cockpit coop hosted by the king of high pings... yes, none other than Mr. Johnson!

I didn't even bother to notice it was an unlimited ammo coop until I tried to drop my torpedoes from my HE-111!

Everybody's pings were at like 2000 or better and planes flew backwards and warped all over the sky and flew backwards half in and half out of the water.

The sad sacks from the old 361st (now called the 318th for some reason and I don't care why!) had joined up to beat up on me. Fair enough and despite all the warping, a plane I rarely saw near me flown by apparently Wizard was finally said by the computer as having downed me. Does this make the 361st a bunch of cheaters? Absolutely not! I don't get along with the 361st, but that doesn't mean they cheat! It means the host was either having his computer choking on the game or his connection was really, really bad as it always has been!

If you want to know more about the limited amount of cheating that can be done and how to prevent it, see Luckyboy's Guide For Complete Users.

That was a poor example, Lucky, even though you say we dont cheat. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif No names or squads. You bring the whole 361st/318th in with a comment like that. Please refrain. FYI, we are still the 361st, just not in the Pacific Theater as the 361st wasnt there. In PF, we are the 318th.

I wont ask you to edit it. Not my place, its your place. I dont know exactly what happened. Nor do I wanna know, and noone has said or will say why. that is between the original parties.

Can anyone help explain this? I am baffled!
