Hi fellow wolfmaniacs!

Ive been playing ver. 1.33 and ver 1.4 a while now, and its great we have the punkbuster dude to kick cheaters out of the game. :fistpunch:

Or does it really work that way? :uhm: Im not a super out-of-this-world player, but I consider myself a fairly good aimer. And I know that there are many players with better aim than me. But I cant stop wondering about aimbots and stuff..

Ive encountered some unreal aimers.. and when speccing on them, I cant see anything special about their aim. It really makes me wonder if its possible to use some sort of aimbots on servers running punkbuster. I shouldnt be, but I figure that when hackers can hack into Nasa and stuff, why cant anyone find a way to fool the buster?

Any thoughts about this? :confused: :confused: :fistpunch: :fistpunch:

I agree about the ridiculous aiming a lot of people seem to have developed. I have always been decent when it comes to shooting, and I used to be able to dodge a lot of shots too. I stopped playing for a few months and when I started back up, suddenly everyone has these godlike powers of targeting. It's bad to the point that immediately upon sighting me, someone opens fire and hits me no matter how far away or what steps I take to evade. There has to be an epidemic of bots out there. Good aim is one thing but I've seen impossible shooting. Anyone else think so?

Remember that when you crouch you can shoot very far away. As for people with good aim I've never encountered one and I've been playing for at least a year. It may be that Im on the east coast and only play on east coast servers. When I find a player with equal aim ability I change my tactics (outsmart them, move better than them etc,.) and that always works for me.

1 other thing u can always watch them to see by going in specator view & following them. That should help tell you if they are indeed using a aimbot, but from what I have heard pb has been pretty darn good @ stopping them from entering servers.

that punkbuster cant detect a cheat if it doesent know it. that means if someone sits at home and makes lets say an aimbot, then he or her can cheat away until they share that program whith an honest dude or dudette, who in turn shares it whith even balance. tell me if im wrong.

Now there are some things you guys overlook here:

- Lag: if the connection you have is slower than the guy your spectating, you won't get the same targeting image as he does. - Pc hardware: especially 3D card and monitor size here. I play fluently @ 1600x1200 at 21 inch which helps your aim a lot. - Luck: well luck - The method you use to fire: as said above by Luger9mm, crouching really does help a lot as does firing in short bursts. I nail lots of snipers with the mp40 on a good day. - Positioning: in tram for instance, Axis have a clear advantage of being on the higer side of things. It's much easier to shoot someone when you're shooting from above. - Practice: if you haven't played for a month and then start playing against daily players, you get fragged. Headshots...

It's not impossible that someone uses their own aimbot or something, but lets give the good fraggers the benefit of the doubt...I've been kicked a couple of times because some idiots thought I was cheating, which pisses me off. :frog:

lets give the good fraggers the benefit of the doubt. odds are that most of us have never seen someone using an aimbot(ur looking for people who cant miss,and are shooting only at the head)ive seen some demos that people have made in other games and must say that using such programs takes ALL the fun out of the game,mostly for the people who is using it. esmil2.gif

ok stop putting that stupid purple face, isnt it too big. Thats weird in all the time playing wolf(1/2year) i have never seen a cheater, never. If i see a player who is kickin ass i go to spectaor mode and follow him, and yes there are some damn good players, i know 4 good players that i saw and were playing super good badkarma(ofcourse:)),Volks, Ricebooy, and someother guy whos name ends with dog(in voulks clan). A good way to check if a player is cheating is to look at his stats, if his accuracy is like 70% high with a smg and his score is really high then i would say he is cheating

Nice to see that people have thoughts about this issue. I know its wrong to suspect anyone with massive aim skills a cheater.

But it makes me wonder, cuz I am playing at 1600x1200 with 21" screen, ADSL and I use all the shooting tactics I know - croaching, short bursts, aim for the head etc... and still get killed from 3 shots from distance. Thats when I go spec mode and check the player out. Some are indeed excellent aimers, and others dont seem to be - yet they frag everybody.:confused:

Well, my point is that I am not sure that punkbuster can deal with everything..

Another thing: Why are people altering their cvar settings? intensity, uifullscreen, overbrightbits, bobroll, bobpitch etc. ??

What do they gain from this?

:smokin:

Lessens the screen shake, lets the enemy stand out like a jew in hitle r's reign(no offense). Trust me, cal, twl, and now OGL have the loosest settings ever. It looks like playing nintendo except the character is the only 3d object. If you're playing on an osp server, chances are the CVARs being checked arent being checked hard. Our public server config is harder than Cal's. That to me is fuc king sad. it's a league, you should be expect to play with more requirements. not given a nuke to kill one guy. Thats what it seems like. We play on an old ogl config cause the new one is damned gay.
