Is there any way to do checks on players to see if there are any mods that they are running that do not coincide with our Pure Server settings. We run a league on pure server with all cvar checks constantly made through the entire match. We believe that one of the teams might be cheating ( 99 % positive) but all our PB checks cannot pick it up. What other avenues are available to us that we might put this issue to rest. Thanks for your time. Evil

Try the MD5Tool. It can be found here on the punksbusted website. It scans for files like nofog and thermal sigs. It also checks files that are in the core SoF2 directories that are the wrong size, wrong name, different 'last modified' date etc.

I don't think there's much else you can do, other than record demo's and PB screen's. :)

if you are running your server pure. You should stream it to pbbans.com if you are your clan's server admin, sign up at pbbans and ask for some help there. Depetris is phenominal and can help you if he has time. Rodeo BOB is also a good person. The staff is quite knowledgable. //edited. If you have taken demos. If i have some time, you can send them to me and i will take a look at them if you like. but start at pbbans.

You can also post them on the www.punksbusted.com forums and ask for an opinion there. If they agree or find the player to be hacking, they will probably add the GUID to the master ban list. Ho ho ho. :)

Demo's are useless on PsB (punksbusted) as they only ban from streaming PB logs and screenshots taken on streaming servers. On the other hand, PBBans takes demo submissions along with any other form :P

It doesn't really matter which (if any) you stream to, as you can run both their banlists at the same time :D That way, banning alot of cheaters from your game server!

Thanks guys, I appreciate the help. I'm gonna run it by my Lead admin and see what we come up with and I will definetly post in the Punkbusted.com forums also. The demos and screenshots don't seem to be picking anything up that we can put our finger on so I needed to find another source. Thanks again, Evil

Then maybe it's just the cheat called skill ? ;-)

No! Pretty much we agree for now that this whole clan has something going on . I have several admins on it. There is an agreement from several clans in the league that took awhile to come to this decision. This was not an overnite thought. We have a process that we go by before accusing anyone. That is why am posting here to make absolutely sure. Evil
