I was in a 2v2 game last night. My team was loosing and eventually i was killed. Before i was gone though, my teammate told me not to worry about it because he was going to dc. Sure enough, he said "watch this" and the mismatch error screen came up and everyone got a disconnect. How are these cheats doin this? I've seen that message several times in games where my team was winning but thought it was just an unfortunate error! :furious: :thumbsdown: I have cheaters and they all should be :micro: .

That is cool. I understand why it would be bad to post how to dc! Bad question on my part. However, can it be stopped or is there anyway to know when someone is doing it before it happens?

Or, is the only fix playin with people you know and trust? Thanx

yup, that is the only way to play, because there are so many people who cheat.

hmm.....I can't seem to catch on to the term "dc"......call me stupid.......

ANYWAY! Mismatch errors are caused by the levels scripting, for example here is a good one.

--------- *IF* Player has entered vehicle *THEN* Vehicle is transferred to the power of ---------

Notice anything screwy here? That's right, the second you or someone else enters that tank, the script will attempt to give control to all of the connected players or the local players. The issue here is that referrs to non-AI players, meaning everone else no matter what. Quite possibly when his cheating was happening he caught a script that should not have run for that situation causing an infinite loop in the localplayer field. These errors are not present in skirmishes with the AI, but will always appear in multiplayer or LAN or any other mode no matter how many people join.

Don't you mean maps that are own created then Rabbies? Official CnC maps can't be rigged like that i think...... hope not :uhm:

I get out of sync sometimes. Not always when people cheat in my oppinion cause it can happen in begin/mid or end game (mid is less likely to be a cheat)

Most likely that someone has a bad INI file. This also maked the game 'corrupt' like in a out of sync. This happens when someone didn't remove a mod i think.....
