likely the same issue as advanced launcher where messing with the files could get bad now that we're getting a client side anticheat

 

hopefully also like advanced launcher seperate volume sliders are something they'll try to implement ingame

I mean. Your kinda asking them if you can disable a core feature in the game. Themes are one of the very unique things this game has, and you want no part in them. I get that they can be annoying, and in reality its not all that often you run across a bad one, But they are a core feature.

it really should be an option though, regardless of how unique it is

From day 1 that i  started playing this game i made a backup folder in the DefaultMusicLibrary and put all the  mp3 files in it,  just so i wouldn't have to listen to some one blasting music every 10 feet in the game lol 

 

you do have to throw the files back into the default folder before updating or it will re-download all the mp3,s

Well, make it a suggestion for the future, an option to disable music and annoying ambient sounds. I am totally in for that. But well, if TankBal got banned then for something completely different.

how about an option to report ear raping troll themes?

You can already do that. Just record them using their theme when you die and send it up to support.

 

Nine times out of ten they will go onto the person's account and delete the theme or ban them for a week or two and delete the theme.

Yeah but an option to do that would streamline things, not everyone can record or has it setup.

Probably in the future. Right now I would rather them get an anti cheat that detects actual programs and not a stupid statistic analyzer that can give false positives.

 

No one is stopping you from removing music files from the game files in the first place. Until they get something like battle eye, modifying the game is of no real issue unless it alters the way the game is seen by the server.

From what I have read, G1 did not pay Gameblocks to congigure/tune Fairfight.

So the assumption being that GI configured Fairfight themselves, and evidently not very successfully. 

They must have had an extremely limited operating budget, kind of sad actually.

 

With a properly tuned Fairfight & Battleye, it should be pretty effective.

Considering all we've learned, I'm shocked they ever managed to release the game on consoles.

I think it's fine but when the game gets patched, you should probably stop messing with the game files just to be on the safer side.

 

Make a suggestion, i don't see why it couldn't be an option ingame.

tiggs has always said that the advanced launcher is the only acceptable file alteration

 

there was an issue with being able to remove explosions and stuff but iirc they either fixed that or gave up

Never heard that, and definitely was actively used by many even when Tiggs was around. I guess they didn't/couldn't enforce it if she really said that.
