Hi, I'm looking for a scanner to check if there are any cheaters on the serv. It's for my friend, he has a server and he says it exists but I never seen I though.

There is no such thing. Check the server info before you join to see if it has pb enabled or not, That's it. This is a very anti-cheat community, So we'll have no more talk of cheats etc or mr :lock: will be applied to the topic.

Actually ... For once ace is wrong in a sense. LOL but only little less than slightly, was he right.

Punkbuster is the scanner used. But it is used by the server and the people running it. Other than that, you can't just Dial to the server and scan everyone/thing there for cheaters.

There are several tools at the disposal of the servers themselves, but not players. Could you imagine the power you are asking for ? The ability to scan people's computers from your own computer ? No .... Not plausible.

Rocmod 2.1c also has a scanner.cfg which scans for model and texture hacks.

Like the PunkBuster MD5 Tool, ROCmod's file scanner works by scanning player files and performing MD5 comparisons to make sure the files have not been altered or replaced. However, unlike PB's MD5 Tool, which can only scan pk3 files as a whole, the file scanner examines individual files at the game level. If a player has a skin or weapon model installed, causing the game to use it instead of the default, the file scanner will detect the difference and report it to the server. Like voice commands, the file scanner is fully configurable on the server, using the scanlist.cfg file. It is up to the server to decide what files should be scanned, and what actions should be taken for mismatches. The cfg file has the following format: For example: k 8EEC06E5835BBC3EEB8F5E644994E2D6 shaders/effects.shader Note that the file name must include the full path of the file, as stored in the pk3. Each line begins with an action, and can be one of the following values: k = Kick player from the server m = Broadcast a warning message to all players in the server a = Broadcast a warning to all admins in the server l = Do nothing except record it in the log Whenever a mismatch is found between the MD5 value stored in the cfg, and the value returned by the client, the specified action for that file is taken.

Yes but was found to be " unstable" and problematic when in use. hence the reason why it wasn't mentioned.
