XVM has a now illegal reload timer...

Recommended Posts

I made the mistake to update my XVM today. And they included gambiters damage panel that comes with a reload timer. So until they remove it or this functionality XVM is basically an illegal mod. And I just want my crews and binocs to switch tanks :(

Has anyone links to older versions?

Don't upload replays and you will be fine. WG EU is shit at baning people. 2 years ago I wanted to make a point when some mod and pub forum dweebs claimed WG deals with bots. I botted for 5 months (or more), my Wr dropped instantly (look at the acc I am posting from and you will see a clear moment when it started) yet I wasn't banned. My acc was only banned after I have written about it on public forums AND written to WG directly saying "hey I am botting, why are you not banning me, plz ban me" and even then it has taken them like 3 weeks to do that. So i am pretty sure you are safe.

How they can prove that you have illegal stuff besides some 3rd party app or checksum?

Well I am a Game Designer so I can at least provide some educated guesses.

  • Checksum of course, but will be a game of Cat and Mouse.
  • Upload the res_mods files upon report (possible but unlikely since a lot of people report of reasons and reports of cheating can't be taken seriously IMHO)
  • Scan the RAM for certain Code. basically like an Anti-Virus. Afaik Valve and Blizzard do that for CS:GO and WoW
  • Recognize certain Input patterns - specifically for Aim assists They are able to instantly betweent two points something a normal player can't

I know, but with current game state there is no way besides wild guess. By looking into replay you can't really tell if someone runs timer or not. So why worrying?

The worry is that WG will start scanning the res_mods folder for known scripts, and automagically issuing bans. They've alluded that they have silently begun adding this functionality, but we don't know how much of that is just deterrent bluster, or just words to pacify scrub cheat complainers.

They can ask for your python logs and if you don't produce them, ban you.  At least that is what WG pretends it will do for many clan events. 

edit: autoaim+ does not appear to fit the description of the type of mod WG wants to ban but WG is rather fickle so I don't want to find out.

I mean they could ban every XVM user - which they won't do, at least until the next version will still have the realod timer. But, I am pretty sure that the next version of XVM will have that feature removed, since they don't want to be on the illegal mod list. I am just surprised they use this functionality in the first place.

They should just ban all mods, mods are becoming a worse cancer than arty.

Edit: Just went on Armored patrol to see what this "Master Ambush" mod was, didn't bother me too much, that Woras mongo encouraging people to get cancer mods from plazmakeks, now that bothered me a bit, like we need more retards with fallen objects mod and the like.

I don't see how autoaim + would be illegal. It's not aiming for weakspots nor is it leading the target.

 

its illegal now even on APAC

cant WG just block each and every mod at once? I cant see the need for any mods. I already disable the damage indicators of WG because that is nothing else but legit cheating. It is just a miracle that our current auto-aim does not lead shots.

I also turned of the damage logs because it provides me with total irrelevant information. If I need X ammount of damage for a missions I will get that damage anyways. Though I can understand it has somewhat usefullness when you also want to survive for secondairy conditions.

And I certainly do not want to know that I am stuck in some "21%" team in advance...Besides I already know that 90% of the battles today are auto-wins or auto-losses :look:

Oh god I turned Winchance off pretty soon since it fucks with my mentality. I like to look at it after the game to have an excuse or the feeling I carried actually, but before the game its really, really annoying. And especially those people that are like "lost" before the game even started.

I mostly like XVM to switch Crews in and out premiu tanks and my single pair of binocs. And I like seeing my stats in certain tanks in the garage.

These people should be really banned for life, demoralizing the team like that. Those dumbasses forget that it are these matches in which we get pool and topgun medals. I was once tooning with a clanmemember, and every match:.. auto lose.. auto win. And than in another match: fuck this, we're gonna lose this. But I was the one who carried big time and won, when he barely dished out his own HP in damage.
