"Wallhacking" - New input
« on: Thursday, August 02, 2012, 11:56:01 AM »
It seems that some NVIDIA cards are able to be set as such that when the option
"Full shadows" is set in game, the shadows stretch up to 3 meters long.

Means that if a guy hides proned somewhere, for example Main entrance Hospital
right side in the grass alongside the wall, his shadow will reach the inside of the
main entrance corridor and reveal his presence to anyone with those settings
walking out of the building...

There's really nothing you can do to prevent people from doing that. As gay as it is you can't control what peoples graphics card settings are.

It's one thing to cvar something that can only be accessed in the ini, but to cvar something in the game's menu? Really?

Well if there are no shadows in-game anymore who cares how the GC is set ?

Because it's not a wallhack. I agree that it's a dirtbag thing to do, but something like that could easily be looked for by obtaining screenshots.

our servers along with n3's servers cvars force you to turn off shadows already, plus other things you cant tweak or do.
