shout4 IP Address 18.104.22.168 Host Name pc-305e-1.fsid.cvut.cz User sharing the IP adres: billybobb 22.214.171.124 billybobs Userprofile Hmm billybob has 65 posts, it could be the same guy or they share the same IP. edit: just checked, quite a lot of threads where bobb posted it where closed... he also has 3 warning points, so it looks to me that it is the same guy.
I'm banning all of BillyBobb's IP address's. BillyBobb aka WildDK aka MikkelMikkel uses a IP spoofer but if it reuses IP addresses, banning these will make his life more difficult.
I'm not banning this account so that his friends cannot explain to him why he is having trouble getting on. Maybe he will thing his spoofer program is failing him...
suits me, Queegster. you know where i is at if you need anything. :)
AzH, you never replied to my one post ages ago asking you to take a look at the QueegTest style (It's down in the mod team forum somewhere.) It is a fix for the coventry issue. Please take a look at QueegTest and let me know if I can put that change into "Air" so that it is inherited by all styles.
I've contacted FileShack and MakePhpp with the following email... My name is ********. I am with a group of developers who have created game called The-WildWest. My online name is Capt. Queeg. I need to speak to you about the recent abuse of your resources. There is a long history, but to summarize we have had to disassociate ourselves with one of the players of this game. What started as removing a player who used pirated CD-Keys and hacked copies of the game to cause trouble, has progressed to the point of this person trying to deliberately expose minors to pornography and threatening our children by name. His oaths to destroy to our own reputatations, online communities and livelihoods are minor and manageable compared to the actions he's taken against our kids. He has, in the past, used makephpbb's bulletin boards to post this material which was hosted by Image shack. He was convinced to remove those images. As it happens, he has started doing it again. We request your assistance in removing this account from your sites. Here is are some examples of his creations: http://makephpbb.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?t=2&mforum=pakki http://img79.exs.cx/img79/7772/iggy5.jpg http://img91.exs.cx/img91/7234/2gays.jpg He usually uses an IP spoofer when connecting to our resources, as he knows we have previously worked with his ISP in Denmark to prevent his distribution of this material. It is our hope that he may not be as careful when using your resources and may expose the new ISP he is using. If you could assist us in locating his current ISP, we will address this with them. Here are some of the most recent IPs he has used as they trace back to providers around the world, they are of little assistance: 126.96.36.199 188.8.131.52 184.108.40.206 220.127.116.11 18.104.22.168 22.214.171.124 126.96.36.199 188.8.131.52 184.108.40.206 220.127.116.11 18.104.22.168 22.214.171.124 126.96.36.199 188.8.131.52 184.108.40.206 220.127.116.11 18.104.22.168 22.214.171.124 126.96.36.199 188.8.131.52 In using your resources to deliberately expose children to pornographic materials, he is committing a felony in the US. Recent court cases have upheld the responsibility of the service providers in such matters. So please take this seriously. If/when he starts including child pornography in these posts, I'm quite sure you will not want to have any association with him. Thank you for your prompt attention in this matter. Please feel free to contact me at any time. ********** ****@**************
For those who don't know the history of this player, here is an email that we sent to our top 5 servers. NOTE: This still left several servers available for him to play on. It was not as if he could not play the game anymore. He just could no longer follow players around for half an hour knifing them down to 10% just to ruin the game and not get recorded as team killing. Yes we have that recorded in a demo...
This is what went out to our top 5 servers.... --- Unfortunately, this is an all business email and not a contest announcement or anything fun like that. You can see it is directed to the current server admins. You are all aware that a little more than a week ago, a ban of WildDK/MikkelMikkel was put into effect on the LoneWolf and Ignacio's Hacienda. Due to the circumstances that followed, the mod team decided to lift the ban and wipe the slate clean. Despite getting the same message from every side, WildDK has continued his aberrant behavior. We have a long list of complaints and supporting evidence. However, this email will restrict itself to the most central and concrete of the issues. What we will be asking of you is quite serious and not a matter we take on lightly. If you find that you have any questions as you read this information, please put them in an email and send it to us. We will answer every question as directly as possible. One of the reasons that we are restricting ourselves to only listing these four bannable offenses is to ensure that we are able to give short definite responses that can satisfy anyone. This is a list of the issues covered in this email. Notice that it is restricted to activity on the servers. We continue to believe that while obviously related to some degree, behavior in-game is separate from behavior on the forums and must be treated as such. BANNABLE OFFENSE 1: Deliberate and willful defiance of an existing ban BANNABLE OFFENSE 2: Deliberate and willful instigation of conflict within the WildWest community BANNABLE OFFENSE 3: Theft of intellectual property BANNABLE OFFENSE 4: Evidence of hack/cheat/bot usage in the Wolfenstein series of games We believe that any one of these offenses warrants a permanent ban. Collectively, these behaviors warrant the action we are taking today. We will explain why. In order to interpret what you read in these logs, you must first know that WildDK has only ever connected to the forums from this location: IP Address 184.108.40.206 Host Name port312.ds1-hi.adsl.cybercity.dk
Likewise, his purchased GUID, 43005ea1032da4fafbda482a55695071, has only ever connected from 220.127.116.11. You should also know that every name in here that we assert as being WildDK has been verified to be WildDK through the console logs which display the name changes. Also, let me assure you that all logs referenced in this email were downloaded directly from third party servers by us. No one outside the mod team gathered the information shown here. Now let's cover the offenses in order.... BANNABLE OFFENSE 1: Deliberate and willful defiance of an existing ban This is straight forward and occurred multiple times on April 12th. The server in question is the RockRidge server as it is the only one that currently has a ban on WildDK. WildDK had been told he is banned from this server. He has been told the ban is permanent and will not ever be dropped. He has been contacted by the mod team and seperately by his clan leader and told that he is banned from this server and that he should not even attempt to join it. As you will see at the start of the log, the ban announcement also displayed on his screen when he first attempted to join the server. This information is from PunkBuster logs. Here he tries to join and is kicked due to the an existing ban: [04.12.2004 15:12:27] New Connection (slot #8) 18.104.22.168:29984 ^1Wild dk [what] [04.12.2004 15:12:27] Player GUID Computed 43005ea1032da4fafbda482a55695071(-) (slot #8) 22.214.171.124:29984 ^1Wild dk [what] [04.12.2004 15:12:27] Kick/Ban Command Issued (Prior Kick/Ban) for (8) ^1Wild dk [what] And here he is back coming from a different port with a different GUID 1 minute 32 seconds later [04.12.2004 15:13:59] New Connection (slot #5) 126.96.36.199:29986 ^1Wild dk [what] [04.12.2004 15:13:59] Player GUID Computed f7efbab24a13b94221b7c1f9a877e9c7(-) (slot #5) 188.8.131.52:29986 ^1Wild dk [what]
Later the same things happens (name change is in the console logs) and he is on with a different GUID 1 minute 20 seconds later [04.12.2004 15:36:57] Kick/Ban Command Issued () for (3) pedello1 [04.12.2004 15:38:17] New Connection (slot #1) 184.108.40.206:29986 one of the kind [04.12.2004 15:38:17] Player GUID Computed 9c2910c13d94b13da684a807cb560d79(-) (slot #1) 220.127.116.11:29986 one of the kind Conclusion: He is using multiple GUIDs to avoid a ban. He is accessing a private computer that he has been told that he does not have permission to access. _______________ BANNABLE OFFENSE 2: Deliberate and willful instigation of conflict within the WildWest community. This is information is from the associated RTCWConsole logs as downloaded directly from the Game2XS server hosting and management website. The lines are in chronological order however console messages that have no relation to this offense have been removed. Basically this is time compressed. broadcast: print "^3=^4WWE^3=^1Wild dk^7 You have been permanently banned from this Game Server via PunkBuster ... Removed by Web Admin\n" ^3PunkBuster Server: Kick/Ban Command Issued (Removed by Web Admin) for (5) ^3=^4WWE^3=^1Wild dk broadcast: print "^1Wild dk^7 You have been permanently banned from this Game Server via PunkBuster ... Prior Kick/Ban\n" ^3PunkBuster Server: Kick/Ban Command Issued (Prior Kick/Ban) for (5) ^1Wild dk broadcast: print "^1Wild dk [what]^7 You have been permanently banned from this Game Server via PunkBuster ... Prior Kick/Ban\n" ^3PunkBuster Server: Kick/Ban Command Issued (Prior Kick/Ban) for (8) ^1Wild dk [what] broadcast: print "^1Wild dk [what]^7 You have been permanently banned from this Game Server via PunkBuster ... Prior Kick/Ban\n" ^3PunkBuster Server: Kick/Ban Command Issued (Prior Kick/Ban) for (8) ^1Wild dk [what] say: ^0Hells^9Scythe: So, how many times are you going to be banned from this server DK? say: ^1Wild dk [what]: no times say: ^1Wild dk [what]: i'm unbanned now say: ^6English ^1Rose: DK you are banned from this server, please leave say: ^1Wild dk [what]: what? say: ^1Wild dk [what]: are you admin? say: ^1Wild dk [what]: if i'm banned why can i then connect say: ^6English ^1Rose: i am one of the admins yes, say: ^1Wild dk [what]: if i'm banned why can i then connect say: ^1Wild dk [what]: i just change my name if it is bothering you say: ^6English ^1Rose: not sure, but i suggest you please leave say: ^1Wild dk [what]: set name pedello say: ^1Wild dk [what]: set name pedello say: ^1Wild dk [what]: set name pedello say: pedello1: rose perhaps you should check up with the admins whether i'm banned?
Conclusion: He feels can avoid any ban and therefore he is not banned from any servers. He knows he is not welcomed on this particular server. He refuses to leave when asked by a known administrator. He is grabbing a RockRidge admin by the hair and rubbing their face in it. He has been asked repeatedly by the Mod Team and others to stay away from the El Amigos clan and he believes there is nothing that can be done about it. He is rubbing our face in it too or assuming we are not able/willing to gather the blatant evidence and act upon it. _______________
BANNABLE OFFENSE 3: Theft of intellectual property.
This is the most severe offense and clearly illegal and a violation of the Activision license agreement distributed with the game. Well, let me summarize: 9 GUIDs in 49 minutes. [04.12.2004 15:09:48] Player GUID Computed 43005ea1032da4fafbda482a55695071(-) (slot #5) 18.104.22.168:29982 ^1Wild dk [04.12.2004 15:13:59] Player GUID Computed f7efbab24a13b94221b7c1f9a877e9c7(-) (slot #5) 22.214.171.124:29986 ^1Wild dk [what] [04.12.2004 15:19:09] Player GUID Computed 184c6565845a685f7c0211fb35069282(-) (slot #5) 126.96.36.199:29986 ^1Wild dk [what] [04.12.2004 15:31:43] Player GUID Computed 82543b6a4b7276b4a34d3e1f3a429dee(-) (slot #3) 188.8.131.52:29986 pedello1 [04.12.2004 15:38:17] Player GUID Computed 9c2910c13d94b13da684a807cb560d79(-) (slot #1) 184.108.40.206:29986 one of the kind [04.12.2004 15:53:11] Player GUID Computed 500b44dc41ae67122cc9226133a3befa(-) (slot #1) 220.127.116.11:29986 Wild friend2 [04.12.2004 15:55:08] Player GUID Computed 749eac14945bf34cac5055a9b6e704bc(-) (slot #1) 18.104.22.168:29991 Wild friends [04.12.2004 15:56:04] Player GUID Computed d5cf7a56b612054a5cf3445c2bfc37ac(-) (slot #1) 22.214.171.124:29991 T4 nk [04.12.2004 15:58:08] Player GUID Computed d6c54cbec5c3c1f5b97c63ba3afba715(-) (slot #1) 126.96.36.199:29991 ^2kio All this from a guy who is admittedly is unwilling buy a replacement copy for his scratched CD only two weeks earlier Re: How do i get a copy of Wolfenstein ? Re: Hvor får jeg en copi af wolfenstein ? Now, the 10th GUID in a week. One to grow on from 4/6/2004. The date is important because it is within 24 hours of us "wiping the slate clean" from his behavior. [04.06.2004 15:53:56] Player GUID Computed 90a151685e5351f30148ee87b375ac16(-) (slot #6) 188.8.131.52:29480 wolfplayer This is the most damning GUID as it is a known cheat. The ONLY way he could have it is if he knowingly was using it illegally. Our proof that it is a shared GUID can be seen using the YAWn tool. Follow this link: http://www.benoenenzy.be/yawn/index.php?name=&guid=b375ac16&nav=search&subm=Search Yawn recorded 510 player names under this GUID before they declared it as a shared GUID on 2003-3-15 and stopped recording. That was well over a year ago. It is not possible that it is from a CD-Key recently purchased from a store. It is illegal. Conclusion: He has violated the license agreement that came with his copy of RtCW. He no longer can legally play Return to Castle Wolfenstein. He has done this so blatantly that there is no getting around what was done. He did this specifically to play WildWest. _______________ BANNABLE OFFENSE 4: Evidence of hack/cheat/bot usage in the Wolfenstein series of games. This is the only offense we will not fully discuss here. Many of you are aware that over the last two year we have received complaints from a wide range of WildWest players regarding level of accuracy achieved by WildDK. However, due to the fact that successful hacks are by definition undetectable, we did not have any actionable evidence. You should know that we now have the name, version and source code of what was used. The method used has been tested and proved undetectable by Punkbuster. Obviously, it would be inappropriate for us to spread this information or anything that could be used in search engines to find such hacks. We will only say that the evidence is specific and overwhelming _______________ Given all of this shown, you must agree that there is only one reasonable action. We are asking each of you to permanently ban WildDK from your server. This will indeed be the third game server ban placed upon WildDK. Due to the offenses involved this time, the only effective method will be to ban him is by IP address. Since he has a permanent IP address this will be effective until he requests a new IP address from his ISP. If he does this and forcibly defies our ban, we will ask you to take the further action of mask banning the entire subnet used by CyberCity.DK. Obviously, we would prefer to avoid this. The most common ban commands follow: PB_SV_banlist - Lists all current bans in memory. PB_SV_BanEmpty - Removes all current bans from memory PB_SV_UpdBanFile - Saves all current bans to the bans to the ban file. When PB_SV_AutoUpdBan is set to 0 this is required to make the ban last between server sessions. PB_SV_BanGuid [GUID] [player_name] [IP_Address] [reason] - Bans a player by name, GUID and/or IP address. PB_SV_BanMask [mask] [player_name] [reason] - Bans a player by partial or whole IP address. List the amount of the IP address that must match. For example "212.242.147." would ban the 254 IP addresses in the "212.242.147." subnet.
Here is what we would like you to execute in your console Window some time shortly after 10pm GMT /5PM EST on Friday April 16, 2004: PB_SV_BanMask 184.108.40.206 "WildDK" "Permanent WildWest Ban" PB_SV_BanGuid 43005ea1032da4fafbda482a55695071 "220.127.116.11" "WildDK" "Permanent WildWest Ban" PB_SV_BanGuid f7efbab24a13b94221b7c1f9a877e9c7 "18.104.22.168" "WildDK" "Permanent WildWest Ban" PB_SV_BanGuid 184c6565845a685f7c0211fb35069282 "22.214.171.124" "WildDK" "Permanent WildWest Ban" PB_SV_BanGuid 82543b6a4b7276b4a34d3e1f3a429dee "126.96.36.199" "WildDK" "Permanent WildWest Ban" PB_SV_BanGuid 9c2910c13d94b13da684a807cb560d79 "188.8.131.52" "WildDK" "Permanent WildWest Ban" PB_SV_BanGuid 500b44dc41ae67122cc9226133a3befa "184.108.40.206" "WildDK" "Permanent WildWest Ban" PB_SV_BanGuid 749eac14945bf34cac5055a9b6e704bc "220.127.116.11" "WildDK" "Permanent WildWest Ban" PB_SV_BanGuid d5cf7a56b612054a5cf3445c2bfc37ac "18.104.22.168" "WildDK" "Permanent WildWest Ban" PB_SV_BanGuid d6c54cbec5c3c1f5b97c63ba3afba715 "22.214.171.124" "WildDK" "Permanent WildWest Ban" PB_SV_BanGuid 90a151685e5351f30148ee87b375ac16 "" "" "Shared GUID" PB_SV_UpdBanFile This will ban each of the GUIDs he's used and it will prepare your ban file with a banmask for any future steps that we might require. The two day delay is to ensure that we implement this across the board at approximately the same time. It allows time for us to answer any questions you might have (VIA EMAIL PLEASE) and it also allows us to prepare a post for the forums stating what has been done (not what will be happening). Given the turmoil that has been GamingForums the last two weeks, you can understand the need for a unified front made up of the leaders of the WildWest community. What will the Mod Team be doing during this time? Well, we had planned to begin limited public testing of the next release of the WildWest mod this week. However, these actions have delayed that plan by a couple weeks and we still have more clean up to do to bring this issue to a close. We will be contacting Activision/ID, Punkbuster and CyberCity to make them aware of our actions and their vulnerablities and exposure. We will also be preparing a short (!) but accurate post for the forums explaining the action we all have taken. Just to let you know, we will not be engaging in debate on the subject on the forums. This is crucial. As we all agree this is needed and are doing this in a unified action, there will not be the need for such a debate. Additionally, we cannot afford to let our current schedule slip any further without placing our long term plans for The WildWest in jeopardy. This is one of the primary reasons why are asking you to keep your questions limited to email. We also ask that you do not discuss this with your players/clan mates until it has been put in place on Friday. We understand the community will want to know why this action has been taken. Our post will adequately explain our reasons and our resolve. If you do have any questions, please simply hit reply and send them to us. We will give you direct answers as quickly as possible.
The WildWest Mod Team
Capt. QueegAzH, you never replied to my one post ages ago asking you to take a look at the QueegTest style (It's down in the mod team forum somewhere.) It is a fix for the coventry issue. Please take a look at QueegTest and let me know if I can put that change into "Air" so that it is inherited by all styles.
sorry, Cpt'n, i don't have the access to do this...
i'll get n0e to take alook at this thread.
Since the forum that hosted this stuff no longer exists I can expose some of the additional evidence that we had on him
Here's one of his posts about using wall hacks and aim bots... notice the use of his same forum name.... I love that quote "Honestly, I can't play without autoaim anymore. I really have to cheat and use that wall hack and the autoaim." Two posts later he confirmed that it was Wolfenstein he was cheating with and not ET. And as proof that that MikkelMikkel was our MikkelMikkel, I offer the following: After we had to perma ban his IP from Gaming forums for posting threats against kids and fake porno images of everyone here, we contacted his ISP and informed them that he would be calling soon to request a new IP address in order to continue what he was doing. We supplied them with the examples of what he was doing. They agreed not to change his IP address when he requested it. He returned to the cheat forums and asked for help. I don't seem to have the page in which he whined about his ISP refusing to change his IP address (that was fun to read) but I do have the following conversation.... unfortunately it is the "Americas Army Thread" that had the fun stuff to read but it isn't on my HD any more. Why am I telling all you guys this? well first of all that site is no longer public so I can do it without risk of spreading cheats. And second, I want you to know who and what we are dealing with....
