>More generally how to prevent cheating in online games?

its a money issue, cheats exploit bugs in games, or modify things that shouldn't be modified. So either you need a team of anti-cheat engineers that fix up bugs or programmers that find ways to detect modifications.

Then impose permanent IP bans or account bans.

All current solutions are botnets. They know everything about your system and what you're doing (e.g. VAC scans your DNS history), and from that they make decisions. Despite that, a caring server moderator/administrator still does a better job at spotting cheaters than some proprietary malware. Another solution would be to design game engines such way that cheaters can't get advantages, using >>14143282 as an example.

Simple, if you catch a player cheating: Don't tell them you've caught them, just throw them in a pool with all the other Germans, Mouthbreathers, and Kids that get a rise out of downloading aimware.

VAC is a barely passable system because it's too slow, and rarely catches private cheats. Ditch the wave system, and simply hand out "Shadowbans" immediately after cheating is detected.

This, people can do a much better job than some automated program looking for hooked programs(innocuous or malicious.)

Anticheats are malware to begin with and don't even do their seemingly-obvious job well, it more often than not bans legitimate users for overlays or only the most popular hacks, while private hacks take longer to be noticed.

In Dark souls pvp, the cheaters were usually the ones who were worse at the game and would fall for easy gravity kill bait unless they had an auto-kill switch which was really only ever found on pc.

It was always funny because they were prone to send hate mail after being beaten and in those messages their broken psyche would show how up is down and down is up in their messed up mind.

there's only ever 4 reasons why someone would hack a multiplayer video game.

-to remove tediousness (like quick pvp builds in dark souls as opposed to grinding and farming for 15 hours, this can be bad cause of 0 health builds, but I've made loads of quick pvp builds cause fuck boring grinding)

-it's available - this is the broken psyche one, they usually don't even think they're cheating and are capable of mental gymnastics usually only ever seen in the most brainwashed of soyboys, I've noticed these guys tend to be mexican a lot based on their names and edginess.

-the trophy is better than the game to them - otherwise known as tryhards who suck but really want that top 100 rank.

-trolling - basically the people in this thread which isn't surprising, you can't really blame them when they're a day away from killing themselves and the only thing keeping them alive is making people mad. If they didn't have multiplayer games to hack they'd probably be dead.

The easiest way to stop a person from doing something is simply by murdering them. They won't doing much after that, I tell you hwhat.

But a more legal method would be for games to implement a way for users to report cheaters to mods + a way to submit evidence to mods as proof. The subtle cheaters may still get away, but the overt cheaters who noticeably break the game won't escape.

The simple truth is that valve doesn't care about cheaters, and in fact wants them around. The cheaters are probably one of the biggest profit sources for csgo, since every time they get banned they buy a new copy of the game and keep going as usual.

All anticheats are reactionary by their nature, therefore the only solution is to preemptively obfuscate your game as much as possible, but unless you're writing your game in your own programming language, you'll still get cheaters. Otherwise you're best off with letting people host their own servers. Closet cheaters are worse than blatant cheaters. Closet cheaters are tryhards who're also hybrid edgelords and wiggers who actually care about their face, reputation, and actually competing despite cheating.

I'd run a subroutine to look if, at any point in time, the main attributes of the player character in the multiplayer online game are being altered. Then, rather than having any immediate action, I'd let it wait and check on how well the player is doing. If he's racking up points extremely fast then there's a very high chance that he's cheating to get on other people's nerves, but rather than banning him I'd make it so that a number of random things can happen to his game for a certain amount of time, including:

>random crashes to desktop

>scores dropping to zero for no apparent reason

>screen gradually turning darker or brighter

I'm no software engineer, but my proposed method of handling the problem would be like so:

Use a compiled data file for the game-code of your game ala QuakeWorld, but don't define the main functions engine-side (which is something QuakeWorld does.) Have the server validate the checksum of the progs.dat (or whatever file) based on the one the server is running. This also gets around security issues of custom game-code without the need for sand-boxing. Also do away with horrible horrible shit like client-side damage calculation (I'm looking at you TF2!)

446f18 No.14146317


Closet cheaters really require a social component to deal with them. Most are quietly supported by a large group of non-cheating friends that pressures/gaslights everyone else into letting the cheater get away with it. Gets really bad when everyone on the server is friends, because the cheater is going to naturally be the best at sucking the admin's ego off.

And they are really hard to spot, easiest way I've found is that they play late at night on un-moderated servers, where they very obviously test out all their cheats. Otherwise it requires some edge case like the the hack bugging out while moving up a staircase or someone shooting at a spectator (and even then, their friends all pull gas-lighting duty).



I can tell you, there is A LOT of very mild cheating going on to 'keep up with the Joneses'. Some cheaters do it to gain the attention of the best players, so they can be friends. Yes it is as sad as it sounds; remember the eternal normalfag only cares about his social life

You can't prevent cheating. It's an endless arms race. The best you can do is sweep up as much as you can.

Systems like CS:GO's prime thing tied to your in-game time played and phone number are just ways of making it less likely that an undetected cheater with custom made cheats will still be undetected by the time he gets matched against you, and is willing to risk an account and all that play time against the possibility of future detection.

In some ways I'm fond of the Rockstar method of matching detected cheaters against other detected cheaters, so they don't know they've been detected and get to find out if their cheats are better than someone else's.

This system would end up banning repeat offenders longer than your service will even be alive. So what if they get to hack once every year or three? It's much different than holding the ban and letting them hack for weeks or even months like VAC and then permanently denying them service to every VAC game. That's just a scummy move.

More thorough anticheat is too invasive, it's better to appeal to an audience that will cheat responsibly (make their own cheat server and announce hacking is allowed in its name). If your playerbase is such ass that you think they need permabans, your players all suck.

Current anti-cheat shit is good enough. You really only need anti-cheat software that is able to detect interference from third-party applications, which you can solve with strict memory access rules using existing OS APIs for shit like virtual memory gating. This is shit we already have and use

The ONLY cheating programs that get past the radar generally speaking are shit like wall hacks that exploit existing game engine APIs and various glitches. This shit isn't an anti-cheat problem. This shit is a straight up engine design problem. And overall, if you really think we need more than that to solve cheaters, then you need to stop being a faggot and bitching about cheaters.

As an avid ArtificialAiming cheater, I've yet to be banned for software detection. Rather, where I get banned usually is games like battlefield with abnormal stats on a per weapon basis.

This is important, as it's one thing to have fun cheesing people with weak or slow firing weapons (and forces you to keep your overall kills per minute low). I'm still many standard deviations above the mean kpm with that particular weapon.

This means there's not much way to rage for more than a day (switching weapons to avoid hitting the 50 kills where the weapon stat ban takes effect). If origin access weren't $5, I would have gone to other games long ago.

Anticheats are like DRM in the sense that they will work for a short time when they're new and then be completely useless, maybe even harming or hindering the legit player.

heres an idea:

when a game starts on a server, it is also started in a secret parallel "universe" server, wherein there is a clone of every player character; those clones are controlled by the computer, and will perform the exact actions of the corresponding player on the normal server

however, the actions of the CPUs are limited by the game mechanics, whereas the actions of the players who cheat are, of course, not because they're cheating

if the CPU players cannot perform an action that the player has performed, then the corresponding player is automatically kicked from the game and reported to a moderator, with the relevant log files

Most anti-cheat is literally just pointless spyware. Cheating in games happens due to either

<the client is able to read variables he shouldn't



>see the health of enemies

or worse

<the client is able to modify variables he shouldn't


>weapon hacks

>free xp and money

Both are results of bad network code. The second is simple incompetence and bad programming looking at you Rockstar. Some P2P games were also infamous for this. The first could be fixed only by not sending over anything irrelevant to the current view, but it would be very expensive performance-wise for the server and often difficult to code. Modern devs simply can't and won't bother, especially since cheating is quite profitable.


How do you detect cheaply that the CPU player couldn't do that action? Compare the positions every few ticks?

Have an automatic anti-cheat and user reports. When both get a match and you're 100% sure that a person is cheating you get their address which they must to input beforehand in order to play your game from your database and send a "reformation" squad at their doorstep which will then proceed to bash their heads in with a ban hammer live on camera for everyone to see.

Your GPU has a UUID that games can use to track you. I just have to ask your drivers like this, there are several API's that expose this hardware feature, here are some of them:



And I can literally ban your GPU from my game :^) . Your hardware has a lot of fingerprints on it and it's pretty hard to find and change all of them. So, you might change one small thing, but it will still match your hardware profile on the Valve/EA/Bethesda cheater database.

Cheating is always going to be a problem with online games but I think a big factor is price of entry. It seems like a lot of people cheat on CS:GO because the keys are relatively cheap, so a ban really isnt' that expensive. Free to play games are even worse. It seems that the lower the bar of entry to play, the higher the ratio of cheaters to normal players is.

While you are correct that those games handle it that way, they also hand out temp and perm bans with options for appeal, not shadowbans. And only rarely is someone falsely banned (at least in Siege) due to the sheer amount of reports needed. Those games use BattlEye for most of their anti-cheat.

Shadowban people with hard evidence of cheating and keep a hardban system for like 5% of cheaters to maintain the appearance that hackers would KNOW if they got banned, but wouldn't actually be able to tell unless they figured out they were in cheater purgatory.

bf4d0d No.14171693


There is only one good anticheat solution: Authoritative servers. As long as a game client is in charge of deciding what is going on in the game, the game is essentially fucked. You can't make sure the client isn't sending manipulated data unless you're in a locked down scenario like iOS or non-hacked consoles. Games with authoritative servers don't have cheaters, and they never will.
