Triggerbotting - Solution? Get rid of crosshair changing colours.

Recommended Posts

You would have to remove the player info pop-up as well then. If you were to remove the crosshair color change.
Still not a good option seeing as model size and hitbox would be a problem then.

I wish there was a way to disable that popup. It's unnecessary GPU load in missions. It's minor, but still every bit of fps helps.

There's an old video that I remember about how to improve your gameplay. Not to like just be god at the game, but to suck less.

Part of the problem with comparing APB to a game like Counter Strike, or Rainbow Six is more than just the game mechanics. It's the environment. Small maps, short time limits, ~3 minutes per round. Your entire strategy is based off of you seeing your opponents and the major audio ques you receive from your opponents interacting with the environment. 

What the red crosshair assists in, is telling the player that you have a clear shot on an opponent, regardless of where on their body. 

Remove the red signs of seeing a player, their name, the crosshair, etc... Okay... how do you tell someone is an enemy on the other team? You shoot an unaffected player. 
Okay... say the name of a player remains... Then this still defeats the purpose, because the trigger bot can still analyze the part of the screen you tell it to... If a red name pops up, then they fire... still the same issue...

FairFight is still implemented, and is still statistically analyzing gameplay. That will help weed out these players.
BattlEye can prevent these triggerbots from running blacklisted software. I forget the name of a macro creating software creative professionals use that has been black listed...

this kind of text pops up when you aim at vehicles (vehicle name), vending machines and all that kind of stuff... does this kind of triggerbot also start shooting when you aim at cars?

this would give cheaters with aimbots or hitbox highlights, just even more of an advantage over the regular player. We shouldn't plan game features around cheaters. but the anticheat should be imporved to detect triggerbots.

What? How do highlighting crosshairs have anything to do with aimbots or hitbox highlighters?

Holy crap, what in the world is your rig that you're concerned by the added gpu load from this popup?

i guess if there was no red crosshair a min height character could more successfully hide behind crouch cover whereas someone with aimbot/wallhacks would see them regardless, further widening the gap between legitimate players and cheaters

kind of flimsy tho

that will only work on the most basic triggerbots like AutoHotKey detecting mouse colour changes to fire.

It will have no effect on real cheat programs.

Basic, external triggerbot is the most diffused triggerbot atm since it's not injected and as such is "safer" than "proper" cheats, while still guaranteeing an edge on legit players. All you need is to look for the process and shut down the game if you find it, but frankly I wouldn't know if BE can do that without proper admin access.

Injected cheats are another pair of sleeves and need to be detected via other means. Edited by Rikard86

Do you really need to bully people in your signature? I believe, messages on your profile is meant to stay there, not be used as a tool to troll or bully others. From, what I can see, you're a decent guy, no need to lower yourself. 🙂

if the car is the color used for the triggerbot, that it's supposed to fire on, then yet it will fire. Some noobs are dumb, as you will see them rapid firing at jokerbox ammos LOL. Edited by Kivron
No need to add to the drama :)

Show me, why being to do something like this is not that serious? A well-rounded player would be deadly with a triggerbot, that's a fact. Streamers, using them right now, with a hotkey, to not misfire or shoot at red names. Example.

WinAPI is a Windows application programming interface, yes a lot of it's functions are being used in coding and are not limited to cheats only.
What you see in this video is a poor GetPixel color bot. Imagine paying $50 for 10 lines of public code 😄

I know you're his buddy and all, but why should I not "bully" him? His avatar is him making fun of someone else's look.
How's that any better. 🤔

And a profile comment is public, so I can use it to whatever I want. Not my fault the guy does nothing but leave stupid comments that are meme worthy.

I am not talking about the interact part.
People use the stars for their bot, since that will only show up when you hover on players.
And I believe it's even more accurate than the red crosshair.

It's sad that a cheater picture like that is part of the first few screenshots of the game. /shrug

I don't have any friends here 😢 But, bullying someone, doesn't build anyone up, you're only making yourself look bad. There must be some reason, if he is doing that. Also, it's not your job to, bully people. People will, do what they want though :( Edited by Kivron

Pretty sure the person in his avatar is him because (from what iirc) he has asked in the past if he looked like that dude from Horton Hears a Who.

My opinion is that whenever you remove something that helps regular players because "it will make life harder for cheaters", what happens is
- it makes life harder for regular players
- cheaters find a new way to cheat
