General Chat / Re: Convert Shotguns from 285 to 25Assist
« on: Friday, May 31, 2024, 12:43:06 PM »
Am I hallucinating or is there a shotgun mod floating around for 2.5 Assist?. I seem to recall seeing a few servers running it and perhaps even playing it here and there over the years but I can't say for certain. I'm also not sure if there is a difference between the mod and 2.8.5, but figured I'd throw that out there.

Shotguns are available in the Pool Day map.

I haven't worked on the tracker in some time due to needing a break but in response to this incident a few ideas popped into my mind to ease myself back into some work before I begin tackling some overdue plans.
I feel like this sort of thing is relatively uncommon, but on the odd chance suspicion arises in the future I've added a few tools that will hopefully help spot this sort of thing (at least to the point it can be brought to a Assist administrators attention for a proper investigation).

Searching for a name will now consider previous display names. The current name will be displayed along with an asterisk which when hovered will display a tooltip with the matching alias.


If a players name history is longer than 10 names, you'll be able to load the entire (tracked) history in increments of 10.


Finally, you're able to filter match history by matches played with another player. In this example, matches with both myself and Mr_Gunman-GB are being displayed rather than just my personal match history.


Great Work !

All well and good . I guess you can all pat yourselves on the back although when I  made this video and it was posted and suggested he was cheating I was pretty met with a Brick wall from most people keen to say he was clean and his game play suggested nothing untoward he was a Pro ( Whatever that really means( Won tournaments etc etc etc LoL !
 He clearly was tracking people across maps and scoring highly on a regular basis with very little deaths . A few other players supported my feelings and thankfully Bart has investigated more deeply and my feelings were proven to be correct rather than being labelled a continuous Cheat caller . Cheers

The Age old Pro using sneakey measures ... what a surprise ...
Of course the other account that played with him and claimed he went to a tournament was probably aslo a stooge account .
Cant Say I didnt warn you !  two weeks is a little weak dont you think? Of course if he was using a Laptop with a ghost account ,, What else was he doing .....

I'll just reiterate what teddy said. It'd be either killing people from spawn, or inhumane snapping to targets. Outside of that, it's incredibly difficult to tell between the best players and cheaters. The sad reality is that this game is over 20 years old on a 3 generation old Unreal Engine. It's not like cheat detection for Unreal 2 is still ongoing.
The biggest cheat deterrent this game has is the fact that committing resources to cheating in such an old game doesn't really make much sense. There's no clout in it.

So Its Open Season then ....

Nah man, a "Nice Mouse" is the Logitech G Pro Superlight. A "Nice Mouse" is the Razer Deathadder V3 Pro. This mouse just sounds like it's straight up cheating and you can absolutely ban for that. We've banned macro (auto fire with one click) before and we can certainly do it again. The trick is being able to detect it.

I get the point that the anti-cheat isn't all encompassing, and it's absolutely not. We couldn't even hope to get the type of detection modern FPS games get, and even those aren't absolute. The one big benefit we have is server admins being able to ban obvious cheaters. The obvious downside is good players getting banned by bad server admins but you can't win every battle here.

So what constitutes an obvious cheater ?

With all do respect, I think you need a better sound card / headphones then.

SoundBlaster Z Series with Sennheiser Wired Headphones .

I assume your guys were playing a while before you actually started recording so he had some what of a history on your game play and how you would react to certain situations. In that round your teammate was clearly heard to the right of you as I listened to the video. That was clear even without watching the SAI. If I heard it then most likely he heard it as he came around the left side. Typically players tend to stick close together as they have a "feeling of safety" that someone else is covering there back. He can deduce that you were probably close by. Then he went all the way back to his side got the OBJ and came all the way back without even a shot at him so by deductive reasoning he can infer that you were somewhere back at your spawn area. From the sound available from your viewpoint he went to various places and finally found you in one of the most common places on that side peps go to hide. Again, simple connecting the dots. Noting special about it. He just decided that if you were there he was going to make it a jump shot.

For what it is worth it was kind of cruel how it ended but again that is the game.

As for rapid firing binds and / or hardware rapid fire mouse hardware: I would prefer peps play using what they are given physically rather than rely on these things but I leave it up to Assist admins to determine what is allowed and not allowed.

I think youve read far more into this argument than I have !! LooL
I was playing alone , No wingman .
You can hear he didnt go round searching the map , that was my point . the video maybe makes the sound less close but I know the turn of events .
Ill leave it there .

Tommy, this isn't the first time you have raised objections to other players that is unfounded in reality.

You need to come to the realization that as good as you may feel you may play there will always be those that play better than you. This also goes in life in general. You may not like the manner in which they play but that does not mean they are cheating. Now weather they are using advantage play is up for debate such as rapid fire shooting, etc. He and others out there have either some type of rapid fire bind (I allows thought that assist would detect that but it seems it still allows it) or some hardware mouse rapid fire, or he is really good at hitting that fire button, lol. I know I cannot manually hit fire button that consistently fast but then again there may be peps that can.

As for the actual video I watched it and didn't see anything wrong.

The first round he saw you as he peeked real quick around the stone. Simple as that. And you where hiding in a logical spot to look.

The second round you flat out missed him. He didn't see you as he was turned the other way.  At that point you gave up your location up and did nothing to either move so logically he flashed you and killed you. He did say you got him red though.

As for the third round quite frankly your teammate gave you up. I heard him come up the left side of you and around and killed you teammate. He then went back to his side OBJ so he scanned the map, he knew you were probably back at spawn somewhere, sounded like he flash the sniper room with the second floor, didn't find you there and then went to your obj didn't find you and with all the information he gathered from above, deduced that you were probably below. Some times it is just a matter of knowing the most likely spots where people will go by process of elimination.

I will say that jump and then shoot shit is gay but again its part of the game, deal with it.


Just another thing !

 `This also goes in life in general. You may not like the manner in which they play but that does not mean they are cheating. Now weather they are using advantage play is up for debate such as rapid fire shooting, etc.`
Is this not contradictory ?! Is rapid fire cheating or isnt ?  Exploits can be turned On and OFF anytime .

Engineer ,my observations lie in the third game . I have not made any comments on the first two . How do you think my tema mate ` gave me up ` ? We wernt following each other around . I sat still all game , no sound . There were many other places to hide. Having played a good amount of time with this player I decided to video the games , just those 3 . The Players said he was willing to send his INI to prove he wasnt doing anything ! What does this prove ? He might have 3-4 versions of it . Just lame excuses all the time .

he doesn't cheat in this video... old farts... move your ass and kill him... otherwise he'll search you and kill you ... nothing suspicious to me. and I took time to watch this camping video...  :D

No more Beer/weed for you guys  :P :D

Easy to make general comments but quite obviously you havnt studied the last game. I hid right from the start . He finds me and hangs around above , throws a nade , then a flash , shoots a bit at nothing while he decides how to kill me , waits for timer to near the end and jumps in front of me amazingly facing my exact position and kills me just before timer ends . I made zero sound or movements that created any sound onec it was at my position . The game has few players but we need honest players not dominators who use exploits / cheats to gain a big advantage .

He was called suPreme_ from 22nd of March until 18th of April of this year.

There is no record of him using another name containing "supreme" in the last 10 years.

With that said, this sounds like a witch hunt if I've ever seen one. Just because someone can control their recall semi-decently (which you wouldn't be able to tell from a third person video like this anyway) doesn't mean they're cheating.

This isnt just about recoil .

For behaviour I can understand, just wanted to clarify there is no cheating as that was what the topic was about.

Just read the chat box Bart , This guy is intent on being abusive to anyone that listens . Its not good for the game . Changing his name to my name with a + after it ?! What all that about ? Childish games? Then berrating me and my Mother !!? Its pathetic but we dont need this type of behaviour . It needs dealing with . Its not about Mothering everyone. Many of us are grown adults , we play for fun and are mostly civil to each other  and the small nucleus of players are what`s keeping the game alive .
Sincerly Id like to see the admins play a bit more and be noticeable.
Best
Tom
