Just recently I decided to write a script that at a click of a button would set your player in to a sequence of movements designed to provide an almost random pattern to anyone observing you. The script allows your player to move your character through Crouches, leans running back and forth jumping in all speeds in directions leaving you to aim the crosshair at the opponent. The script is set in a “cyclic toggle” whereby each click of the hotkey toggles through a different set of movement combinations. Now before I go any further obviously this is not a “cheat” as this does not unfairly modify the world’s physics in any manner. The question here is would this script give an unfair advantage to any players using it? Should I release this script to others? Or is this script tantamount to a cheat? Opinions please.

The leagues at ClanBase wouldn't allow it, I've personally stated that anyone using 'scripts' of that nature will be banned from my leagues ClanTactics. It's pointless really, if you can't play the game without using such scripts what's the point in trying, it's unfair. I ban people from my servers for using lean/shoot scripts, and 'dancing' scripts like you mentioned would fall under the same catergory, probably. Don't release it, it'd just cause a fuss that's unecassary, and can be avoided. :)

well... .alot of people use them ....and to tell you the truth you are just easier to hit once somebody learns your pattern. So ya know what ...use it if it makes you happy ....just makes you a target to get kicked off of more servers where the admin would look upon it as a cheat... You using it and not releasing it , would be a cheat. Because it gives you unfair advantage over people you are playing against. Even if you place it upon you website and not advertise, it is still available.

well realy sir paul ....not to argue. I kinda look at this game now, as i would look at linux. it is basicly open source. if you can develop a script that makes you move like that and it makes you feel good ..then by all means ...Rely on those scripts, and watch how much better you get ...LOL i understand the reasoning behind notposting on soffiles.com... i am just saying ...some servers don't mind people using it...lol

Well in my opinion having random movements can really mees u up, i mean is it really that hard to control your movements and aim at the same time plus if need to get in to cover coz u got no health left and your doing your jumpty dancing thingie mijick havent u really just screwed yourself over???

Developers intended multiple commands and scripts to be used. Otherwise they would not have built it in their.

Hmm Good points guys. I have decided that even if Sir Paul had not have posted his opinion i would still have not sent it to soffiles. The script may end up being filed in my ever increasing SOF2CFG folder... :) Any further thoughts?

Not an opinion really, just stating fact, not posting it on SoF2files saves me the grief of replying to e-mails from people complaing about the file and asking for it to be removed.

Share the file by all means no problem here, just don't ask sof2files to host it :p

xyz they never INTENDED for people to script the game up. they never think that far in advance..lol myself and others have done many things on one game in particular that the developers " never intended" or thought of ....i know cause we were still talking to the folks that developed it and tested it. You would be surprised. again ..the problem was, this game's cfg is open coded like linux, when you figure what you are doing, the sky is the limit.
