What can this signify in online games?

It happens when the computer detects the high ping of some players, and thinks it's cheating. Nothing to worry about

It's not high ping, though the player concerned will usually have high ping as well. The cause of that message is lost (missing) data packets or unstable (changing) ping.

In the original IL2 this effect could be caused by people pressing "Screenshot" multiple times in short succession.

I had this once in a very impressive way. I worked myself on perfect 6 of an LA5 in my P39, when he suddenly stopped in the middle of the air, let me flew pass him and shot me from behind. I felt like being in HotShots, with the guy in front of me hitting the brakes.

Today this is rather impossible, as you can set the server to check for those delays and kick the player.

I got that message when I was on someone's six after then suddenly shot up several thousand feet then shot down behind me. They're ping was low, but I'm guessing a technical glitch?

Could have several causes. It could have been the server itself, a dramatic package loss, a popping up window from the guy you watched, causing his IL2 to run very much slower, even pause, maybe somebody was choosing an AI a/c and everybody had to load the new modell and your opponent had a very slow pc.

Many reasons, but deliberately slowing the PC down could be possible, too, yes.

You better watch the servers welcome message. If it's stated the limit is 3%, it means that any change with more than 3% going up and down the usual datastream would mean the person is kicked. Besides the advantage to kick those "cheaters" the server runs much smoother. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Well however the real cheating in some of the PF sessions on the UBI.com sever is really nasty...
You finally get to somebody's six, open fire, and as your round are travelling, the guy suddenly drops out of sight, leaves a big dustcloud and flyes sideways for a couple of kilometres. And to make it worse You may then even get a message like this: "You not good enough!"

When I'm online it's to test my skill, but not at cheating.... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_mad.gif

Ubi.com-servers are the hideout places for many odd players. I used to play there, when IL2 was released, I even played SH2/DC with that service. I got to say I never was that much deliberately teamkilled, rammed, insulted and cheated, anytime after banning ubi.com from my HDDs.

Try hyperlobby. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/10.gif

Of course there are some jerks there, too, but it really depends on the server you fly on, then. My personal recommendation goes for Warclouds, as they constantly check for cheaters, ban teamkillers, etc.

There is a way to change the "cheating has been detected" message to anything you want.You can also set it to you you who is creating the packet loss.It requires an edit of the net message file in the I18n folder.Add {0} in front of the user cheating messages.You can also change the message text there.

I changed mine to "(name) has connection issues". http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif
