Do servers suffer from cheaters?

Well, this is just speculation on my part, but I've been in a few situations where upon getting into a melee, a huge list of arrows stream in, and they're all multi-directional... Could this just be a huge coincidence, or is there more to this?

Along with this, I've seen long streams of arrows pop up nigh-instantly. Is this some sort of bind, perhaps?

If it's possible to bind combos to one key and do them instantly, perhaps they should address that feature in the next patch?

in theoy you could do this but I don't think it would work but thx as I keep seeing people do the first combo over and over again but there easy to beat and only way I can think to fix the problom is make all the combos blue instead of green

I know that devil has a script or something that makes him get all the arrows right. There aren't many people that have it though.

Ive had this when 1.2 just came out, but no cheaters i think, but somehow if i fought Gohan i got twice the randoms (and they did the same combo cuz i checked with my friend back then, he did the combos) then with any other character i nearly had no randoms, hence back to normal, strangely enough with 1.2.1 its back to normal again.

This happens when the enemy's power level is massively higher than yours, i.e. a 15 mill vs. a 1 mill.

Unfortunately, that's pretty easy to do. You make a bind to press all of those keys in sequence with one key press. No? A definite failsafe might be needed against that if it becomes a larger problem...

Just remember, this is half life, it's a bunch of spoiled little brats who think they deserve this free game without investing any effort time or money into their rigs or their gaming in general. There are always going to be little sons of *****es who cheat.

This "exploit" was fixed in the current Patch, so 'Devil' can't do it anymore, nor the other players.

To Carnage: Was that 'Devil' or another person of his stature? To my kowledge 'Devil' is in California and you are in Europe so this would make for belief that there are more then there was before.

this takes me back to the old days of cs when i made a burst script. It took me a couple hours and once i got it i couldnt play wiht out it. Every1 that knew i had it said i was a cheater but i dont think of it that way. I think that i was just using my knowledge to make me a better play. Flame me all u want im still dont think i was cheating.

Cheating or not, it takes the fun out of the game since there is no way you can press arrows that fast :/

Yeah, and it also makes you a complete and utter ******.

(Go ahead and warn me, guys...I think it's worth it.)

Maybe the script can also be used for inputting melee? If not then he's got some fast fingers.

- in regards to my multi-directional arrows post.

Thanks for clearing that up for me.

As for the binding of huge melee combos and such, it sucks and please don't do it anymore.

He, as a cheater, also eats diarrhea.

What if the admin set the max prepunches to 20 or something? That could easily explain the amount of arrows there.

Btw, people who cheat during multiplayer games do so because they suck at the game. Theres no reason why one person has to spoil everyone else's fun.

most guys are just using some cheap speedhacks, thats enough because esf dont support anit-cheats. e.g. To Harsens and PCJoe please try to make esf compatible with e.g. Cheating-Death. Or at least VAC.

Actualy I WAS trying to make the expierience easier. I was not trying to piss any1 off. In fact i dont think i pissed any1 off if i remeber correct i actualy inspired some1 to get into scripting. If any here played cs i bet half of them used buy scripts so then that would mean they were cheating because they were takeing 1 sec to buy stuff and every one else 5 secs.

Not really, I'm quite sure he used some sort of speedhack or something because it was simply rediculous. Also when the punches were executed the animations were way too fast. Also when he was thrown or knocked back, he was flying at least 10x the normal knockback distance, simply rediculous. Anyway, I also agree that the team should at least try to put some basic anti-cheat software in ESF, or at least make it compatible.

Making the game easier IS a form of cheating. The game is meant to be played by you, and everything you have to do in the game is meant to be done by you, not by a script. It's like when an athlete takes illegal steroids to "enhance" his performance, it's cheating. Even though buy scripts in CS don't always give you an advantage (in the cases where there is no buy delay time, you DO get an advantage), you can't take the 3 seconds it takes to buy your equipment on your own?
