In case anyone was curious about punkbuster :beer: PunkBuster uses a number of methods. A. Memory Scans (almost like virus scanning, it has signatures of known hacks) B. Scans for CVAR abuse. (built in game commands that can be abused) C. Key usage (tracks key usages, uses known key commands of hacks) D. Low level examination of Video processes (to identify things like OpenGL hacks)
the system is also similar to virus scanning, in that it's only as good as the 'latest definitions', which means there will be an ongoing cycle of new hacks coming out...and being found out.
Luckily, Hackers can't frequent the same servers when caught...cause they'll just be banned. }>
I knew that...Maybe...But yes, I'm glad it is out...Cya
what if ppl make there own and never give it to no1... within a year would it pick it up or somthing?
amen....:lookaround: mate handy tip 4 the boys .alot of peeps are finding trouble with pb
Scan - pb has the ability to scan for cheat "signatures", it also has the ability to monitor and record the code coming directly off your pc and send it to punkbuster tech's. It can only stop what is in it's definitions, but it does have some ability to "detect" what it thinks may be a hack, record the info and send it into punkbuster tech for them to further research it. If it is a hack, they will update the definitions and shut it down. But the hacker will not be kicked during the info gathering process as it hadn't been determined yet.
