Hi, i've been trying some stuff out and i've got skins working on PURE servers... Now i was wondering if that is illegal or not allowed by raven ?

I'd like to hear your opinion / facts ;)

If anyone wants to know how to run skins on PURE servers send me an e-mail and i will explain it to you (IF IT'S LEGAL!!!)

Welcome to 4 years ago.

The trick on how to do this has been known for ages.

Technically, you're not supposed to be doing it. The game is designed so that a server can set "pure" and be assured that everyone on the server sees the same thing. So if you're sidestepping that restriction you're breaking the rules.

From a practical standpoint, you'll probably only get into trouble if someone takes a PBSS and it shows that you're using modified skins to improve enemy visibility or some other obvious cheat. If it just looks like you've got a custom weapon skin that doesn't affect gameplay then I don't think you'll have a problem. I don't know what sort of things the md5 checkers might do, though.

If you are using a Skin .... Nobody knows what "else" you could be using... It is considered a cheat by most players, but it is more like a "mistake" on the parts of Raven in coding. You would be kicked from most servers if they find out you are taking advantage of the PK3 Flaw.

It's not illegal as in going to jail, you'll just probably get kicked from the server. -=LV=-

>SIGH< ..... No you are not informed. If you use those skins or any skins on a pure server, who knows what else you could be using. Hence the reason why you should not use that EXPLOIT. It will get you banned from servers if they find out.
