  1. RTW ran the game for the first few years, G1st did not buy it until later. Actually let me look it up, My memories get foggy not just because that was 20 years ago but I was talking to an old RTWCB about how something worked and he reminded me that the fight between us happens during the open beta. But if it was called energizer then that need to be put back into the game. LTL squads have always been ugly but lately it seem that every third squad the entire team has O-PGLs
  2. what part of "simplified" did you not get? the post below yours goes into a lot more detail but it is basically the same. A simplified example of how a car works is "you press on the gas pedal and it goes, you press on the brakes and it stops. 100% of people will get this. The actual explanation involves describing the engine, fuel flash points, the ignition system, the starter, (power train) the hydrophilic, brake pads on rotors, presser transfers of the gasses, etc.... you will loose 90% of the people you are trying to explain too. I take it you have never taught. You give the basics first then go into the detail once you have established a frame of reference. Before any one can understand anything they have to have a frame of reference. My statement, though very basic and does not take into account a lot of the details in the equation, is right and establishes a frame of reference.
  3. I did not make the rule a GM did, and no there is a difference between a player pressing buttons and bot , Timing. A bot will have the exact time between presses, a human will naturally vary the timing, because they are also doing other actions such as moving, dodging, looking around.
  4. The gold treat is not necessary real. Roll a character. Go to bronze and win(or group with a good team) 5 games in a row. You are now gold. Simplified example: The gold, silver, bronze, are based on your %win/loss. If you win 6 games out of 10 you are gold. Loose 6 out 10 and you are silver, however win 3 in a row and you are back to gold. The issue is that when you have won 1000 games and lost 990 games you can be gold but loosing 1 game will throw you down to silver and visa versa. Now add that the players you win against are also calculated into the equation. Win against lower level players and you can drop from gold to silver. Loose to high R players and you can go from silver to gold. Thus all that gold, silver, bronze means is what server you are restricted too. The funnest thing is that the dethreaters do not get that they would loose ranks faster by actually fighting lower ranked players than by throwing games.
  5. The is a mod that is not available that need to be added. I do not remember the name but the mod is for criminals and what it does is prevent the player from being stunned. There is a real problem with the enforcers having a group of 4 players all welding stun grenades, O-PGL (stun) and ltl weapons. The issue is that have an AOE stun that has no balance or counter. So the Enfs spam the area stunning everyone from a distance the run in and arrest everyone without a counter. from 2010 to 2015 the crims would give up a mod slot to prevent being stunned. Again they were giving up a mod spot, which was already a disadvantage, in order to be able to counter LTL weapons. This needs to be restored so that the Enfs need to actually use a strategic plan that is not, Lets jut spam the area with LTL gernades.
  6. would you like to see a video if this? while the physics are done in server it is based on the input from the client. Google APB undetectable hacks (they are calling bots hacks) and let the examples they author provides as well as his explanations of how it is achieved explain what can be done client side. Yes you can pick it up day one actually, but remember that botting = the use of a macro/any thing that mimics a macro is banned. So id you repeat a pattern say bobfire manually you are in fact emulating a macro = ban. The games rules, not mine. (its in the eula) Funny you say that as normally I am the best player in the match, if not I am typically in the top 4. Not for kills, but because I do the OBJs. As far as shooters, My first shooter was Doom 2d/wolfinstine 3d. I bought them both at the same time, ID had a special. Actually I have an ongoing argument with MMORPG players that claim they want PVP. Mine is that if they actually want PVP they should play APB/BF/COD or even apex. I invite you to watch/join me in APB then judge. Actually in game I do have a challenge that after 5 games if you have a higher score that me as an ally or won 3 out of the 5 games as an enemy I promise to never say a word again. Of course that also means no cheats of any type. The invitation is open.
  7. One thing, these are bit hacks, They are bots. People seem not to understand that while all are supposed to be banned as they are cheats the player is not hacking. Banned acts listed in EULA hacks: modifying the game files: Most used on is in walling. bots: The use of a macro or anything that mimics a macro exploits: This is defined as doing something that gives an advantage by using or bypassing the game system. The main examples are ghosting an grouping with a cheater. Griefing: This is similar to ghosting excerpt the greifer is not doing it to help ether side. for example, when you see players in a dump truck, and not on a mission and are grey, and they are pinning you during an opposed mission that is griefing. Originally RTW was going to make it so that if a player in a dump truck hit a player (in a mission) 4 times they would go 5 star and be target able. Racial, sexual or cultural items/voip: Using any image or text/voip that is offensive or demeaning is banned. Glitching items: This is not seen as much anymore because a lot of the areas are fixed and walled(or clipped) of but there are still some places where you can place an object above normal reach or if placed in vehicles that are blown up, the item will drop inside the clipped area and can not be retrieved. the problem is that 90% of the player base thinks that only hacks are banned and that the only banned cheats are hacks.
  8. I am dedicated to APB, I was sad when we were all dancing in social when the plug was pulled and ecstatic when it was brought back to life. I have also been around long enough to see what allowing cheating has done to it as well as other games. Yes I am biased in that I be leave that anyone that cheats in a online multiplayer game should be banned from all online multiplayer games.
  9. Keep in mind that the use of bot (macros or anything that mimics a macro) is banned so the use of anything from a macro mouse to a gamepad (with macros activated)
  10. lets start with basics, back in RTWCB because of the limited text cap on reports we started running the words describing the cheat together, thus: fastwephandswapfirebot = The player uses a macro (bot) to fire the weapon then swaps hands and fires the weapon the swaps back to other hand and fires (repeat sequence). Bobfirebot = The player again using a macro fires a weapon then crouches (bob as in a fishing lure) and fires the weapon then stands and fires (repeat). there is an alternate bot that only when the player stands. funjumpfiregrabitemcarry= The player's macro grabs the item runs then fires (interrupted dropping the item) the jumps and grabs the item (repeat) this is how the player can carry even a heavy item at a non weighted pace usually faster that players that are not botting can run. Superthrowgernade= The player uses a macro to throw their grenade farther than an actual grenade launcher can. Kangaroorun= This macro allows players to replace their running speed with a jumping speed 2x faster. This is seen all the time, when you see the players bounding down the road almost as fast as a car, they are using a bot not a hack. Kangaroojumpfire= The player uses a macro to jump 2 times the normal jump height and fires the weapon. When carrying an item this allows the player to place the item on top of an area that would be too high to jump to without the bot. there are more than 30 of these, so ,I will stop here. Read the tag and break it down into a sentence and you will under stand the meaning. Walling is very much a thing. It can be easy spotted when the one walling is the VIP. keep in mind that as a VIP they are on screen all the time, you see their location. Now when you are behind one or more buildings and you move right and the VIP moves right so then you move left and the VIP moves left (you are in cover of a wall(s). then as you come around a corner you are met with a grenade or fire you can tell the player is walling. I use it all the time, have for years. It needs to have a tab added to the cheat tab. Add one of the 5 cheat types you are reporting as again 4 of the cheat types will never be flagged by any software. I do not have access to the (old) forum posts, However in that post the GM also stated that "if a player was grouping with a cheater the were exploiting as they were gaining an advantage from the cheater and would be banned for exploiting". If you have the ability search for that sentence and you will find the GMs cheat estimation. I have not lied or misinformed on anything, perhaps you believe I have because you have not been around long enough to have seen the old GM posts on cheating. I have kept up with all of the posts on cheating since 2009. Also in the same discussion the GM stated that "a bot was macro or anything that mimiced a macro" also should be searchable for if you have access to the old forum posts
  11. to me, cheating in an online game is as toxic as it gets. followed by TK/dthreaters and afkers. Please do not have ready if you are going AFK!
  12. "While I want to say that those numbers are indeed impressive I also want to mention that APB has rarely ever had an issue with blatant cheating (Shaw copters) outside of a hand full of time periods such as when a certain cheat went public and for everyone to download. " This statement is completely wrong. Several of the cheat types can not (or are not) detected by any anti cheat and yet they happen in 9 out of every 10 Matches Exploiters such as ghosts. Just yesterday out of 20 matches I played 4 had grey player helping the enemy by blocking our objectives and ramming our vehicles. No anti cheat will ever see this, only having actual GMs in game that a player can call and witness will see this. Botters, Not just the triggerbots or the Bobfirebots or the fasthandswapfirebots or even the fastcasewepswapbots you will see 70% of the time, the worst are the graprunjumpfiregrabcarryitembots. The fact that this was a problem back in RTW closed beta, that still not been fixed is wrong. I do know it was on the list to be fixed by RTW, but as the company was dying it was put on the back burner. This is an easy fix, but RTW did not do it because they had digger issues like the jumpfire with the hvrs that was being debated. Exploiters will never be seen by a normal anti cheat program as the worst are the ones that group with other cheaters , usually clan mates, exploiting their cheaters' cheats. This has not changed in 11 years, the main excuse is that nit is hard to prove that they are actually grouped and not just being randomly partied. Hacks such as shaders and graphic card setting that allow walling. This is the least of all the cheats but easy to spot, especially if the waller is the VIP. Glitchers still exist, in 5 of the 20 matches yesterday 2 players managed to get the OBJ item on top of a roof that was closed off 5 years ago. ! player was not successful as he was not hitting the right spot to get the item behind the wall. 2 others (2 different missions) destroyed the store front that needed to be disarmed / set off bomb thus glitching the mission making it impossible to complete. All of these things require that a GM witness them to verify the cheat. The real problem is that most of the players believe that only hacks are banned so they have no problem using any of the other cheat types. added: 5 years ago one GM stated on the forums that from what they could tell, 90% of the population was cheating in some form. Because if the players did not /report the cheaters on their own team they were in fact exploiting.
  13. the item juggler is botting, Read the Dev post on it: "a bot is the use of a macro or anything that mimics a macro" so no you can not jump and grab the item and not be cheating, that is the point. How do you know if you are grouped with a cheater ? If you see your team mate as you say item juggle the you know they are cheating. Cheaters are very easy to spot, just look at them and watch what they are doing. Also and this is the part that everyone overlooks, until they are banned for it, If you see an item juggler on your team and do not report them or quit the mission then you are cheating. Read the rules under exploiting "using a cheaters cheats to give your self advantage is exploiting" So to answer your question, if you see the item juggler and the rest of the team accepts it then every one you are looking at on your team is cheating (period).
  14. first off, as so many cheaters forget, hacking is just one of the ways to get banned, Cheating in any for will and should get you banned. The problem is that the cheating epidemic is not being handled. For every cheater banned 10 continue un banned. But to be fair did you do any of these things: jumprungrabcarryitem.bot: Grab an item and run shoot grab carry jump etc with it? This is an example of using macros which is banned wallling: Have your video super low, or modified, so the shaders are off and you can see through everything. This is actually hacking because you have modified your files Helped your clan while not in the mission by blocking, hitting, ramming etc... This is exploiting the grey status you said you were in sovereign so,,, were you grouped with a cheater and did not report them or quit the mission. This is also exploiting, you are using the cheaters cheats to your advantage. Do you have any graphics or sounds that are offensive or racist? is also banned Were you taking advantage of a bug or glitching an item? also banned I have found that every one that has been banned was breaking the rules, they may have not been hacking but keep in mind that Just being in a cheat clan playing with them is ban able under the exploiting rules. If your clanmates are cheating and you allow them then all of you can be banned.
  15. The funny thing is that this is what every cheater has said at some point. What does being better than some one have to do with a cheater cheating? Every cheater, banned or not yet banned, has said this. This is because they do not know or believe they are cheating. You see a player sit fire squat fire sit fire squat fire (rinse and repeat), does a supposed skill make a difference? They will tell you "ur bad" which does not change the fact that they are cheating. I have had cheaters even claim their bot's skill as their own. You see a player grab a safe and fire,jump,grab,run,fire,jump,grab,run,(rinse and repeat) so that they are carrying the obj faster than you can chase them. They will also say "ur bad" because you were not able to stop them running down the road with the heavy item. Are they a better player? No they are cheating. You are fighting a VIP and you see him ,with his teammates beside him, reacting to your movements thought several buildings. The snap on you and kill you the second you round a corner. Are they better players? No they are cheating. You are chasing the enemy and get side swiped by a Grey they gray continues to hit you or block the objectives with their vehicle, is it because they are better players? No, it is because cheating. I could go on but the point is that every cheater I have ever seen has always said "too ezy, ur bad, uninstall,etc...) Unlike some one posted above, i don't think that most cheaters are doing it to annoy players. I think they have gotten so use to cheating that they do not realize they are cheating even though the list of banable acts is listed in the eula. 15. Abuse or exploit bugs, undocumented features, loopholes, design errors or problems in the game. Player acknowledges and agrees to report all problems, errors or bugs in the game to APB Reloaded as soon as they are found as their continued use can damage the enjoyment of the game for all its players. Those users caught cheating may suffer suspension from the APB Reloaded game, or manipulation of their character to remedy the game abuse. Please be considerate at all times of other members playing APB Reloaded. APB Reloaded will use diligent efforts to fix these types of issues in a timely manner, and will give all customers the benefit of the doubt when dealing with these problems. 16. Use any scripting or macroing tools, hardware or software. (bot) 17. Use any game hacking/altering/cheating software or tools. Remember that the GM's posted that not just macros but anything that mimics a macro is a bot. Next time you play actually watch the players on both sides. do they: run with an item? (bot) swap their weapon from hand to hand firing with each swap? (bot) Are grouped with a cheater? (exploit) Tracking the enemy through walls, always firing at the enemy as they come around a corner. (hack) Kangaroo jump and place an item on top of an area you can not reach? (bot/glitch) Team kill or even just weaken you by shooting you while you have OP? (exploit)
