This is how I dealt with the nasty barcoder type guys. I searched for a 'Font Editor' program on the internet, downloaded and installed it, made a copy of the 'Arial' font in the windows/fonts directory, edited the copied Arial file with the new program all i did was change the letter L (lowercase) to have a little stroke at the bottom so it would look different from letter I's. And there you go, you can boot nasty, spamming barcoders by counting the I's and L's in their name.:nodding:

Your right ill just have to keep trying to guess the spaces if they use them, failing that, i will shut my server down altogether... its a bit drastic but, i wont give them what they want. :moon: :moon: :cool:

A player in AVP2 (don't know about any in other MP games) who has his name like this: IIIIIlllllIIlll a mix of i an L so you cant kick him from the server because you cant type the name in because I and L looks the same. A simple solution: modify windows Arial font as necessary.
