Since the bad news of Dice/Ea shutting down client side mods i was wondering what will happen to MC 4.0? I have heard good things about this mod and recently been told they were working on sound fx and other things. I can understand that dice wants to put an end to cheating but killing a mod like merciless creations is just plain wrong. What will be come of MC? Will 4.0 be released or is it on hold for the time being?

As far as I know they are still planning on releasing it, An I hope they do it soon.

But it'll come. Check their page,

I think they'll do one of two things:

A) If we win and EA/Dice doesn't lock client-side mods, it will be a normal release.

B) If we lose and EA/Dice do lock down client-side mods, it will become a server side mod. However this would mean you could use only Merciless skins and packs, and not use any other custom skins.

Why doesnt Dice/Ea make an anti cheat program that detects no fog, radar hacks, bright skins etc etc.

[COLOR=burlywood]Blah blah blah. Do you realize the amount of work it would take to create an anti-cheat program? And then it'd have to be updated regularly, plus how do you make something that detects 'bright' skins? People would easily find a way around that one too, I guarantee it. DICE creating a Punkbuster-esque program is pie-in-the-sky thinking.

I think it was Dietrich that said they're planning to release what they have of 4.0. If the 1.4 patch doesn't end up halting client-side mods, I'm sure MC will continue work on 4.0 as originally planned.[/COLOR]
