The problem is that it doesn't stop cheaters.

Well, only the Neon-skins cheaters are stopped with this.

Plane camping doesn't have anything to do with the files. It's just someone waiting for a plane to spawn, and people who cheat with changing the physics of weapons, get a "Not compatible data" message. and cannot connect.

No matter what you do Cheaters will find a way.

(Just an open question, Don't expect an awnser: But how many cheaters do you think there are?)

[COLOR=burlywood]I'm not going to debate how well this approach will work, but the argument that, "There aren't even that many cheaters right now," falls very flat. There weren't a lot of losers cheating in Counterstrike at first either, or Wolfenstein, or Soldier of Fortune II. I know SoF II is rife with cheaters and we're all well aware of Counterstrike these days, even with Punkbuster to help curb things. As a game goes on, the fools out there that feel the need to cheat will grow in number and at a rapid rate, you can bet on that. [/COLOR]

I agree cheaters are a fact we have to live with but not allowing skins isnt going to help if they find a different alternative to make everybody happy

[COLOR=burlywood]I'm not arguing that, I just wanted to nip the "there aren't so many cheaters" thing before someone else tries to use it as a legitimate point for anything.[/COLOR]

The texture.rfa is the problem though. That is where people are making their custom textures Like neon landmines or neon player skins so you can see them through the fog.

Really it isn't that big of a deal. I've played many games that you couldn't add custom textures. And I never quit playing them because of it.

I agree. the cheats page should be taken off of bf1942files.com. it is encouraging cheating by reminding people that there are cheats. What when if you modified the .con files, when you could not connect to a regular bf1942 server. and there was personal servers for modified games and their game was listed as *modified*

YUP!!

BTW, what do you mean by "as long as they let us mod" ? Some of you don't understand the meaning of "client-side" and "server-side" ,you CAN sill mod and run them on server-side and install the client mod to work with the server, Desert Combat for example. Jeez.
