Co-op Hackers; A Real Playground For Them


Recommended Posts

The plethora of hacks coming down the pike is making it damn near impossible to play a co-op mission on an open server these days. Is there any hope for an anti-cheat measure of some sort for GRAW2? Or should I just give up any hope of playing a co-op mission online without some ######ing '###### (this is me looking directly at you, "Chas007") skating by me with unlimited high-rate-of-fire GL and/or RPG ammo? :wall:

Less than five minutes of Google searching and I found half a dozen sites with speed/ammo mod cheat files. Nice... No wonder a guy can't enjoy a hacker-free online session.

:wacko:

Agree. This is why I only plan LAN games.

It's sad that the kiddies get any satisfaction from such blatent and low skill efforts. I could understand it it in a way if they themselves crafted hacks for their own personal use from first principles...but to just download a hack and play online is pathetic.

A bit like using a hex editor to change your top score and then bragging to people...sad. Just plain sad. But that is Alot of Gen-Y's these days. No respect. No desire to work or wait for anything. The want it last week and by the time it downloads, they are already bored with it.

The only way seems to be closed servers.

if u have the brettzies mod u are welcome on Ghostsoldiers server no hacks on ours and chas has been banned and we play every night

No luck with Bretzies mod... for whatever reason the game crashes shortly after joining a mission, regardless of which map is running (have tried with several different maps). I'll look into getting it running correctly another time.

No worries really. I'm having quite a fun time spotting and calling out the hackers on the open servers. "Bloody_Alboz" is my latest target. He claims that by clearing one of the check-boxes in the game setup he can activate the "slide" hack, giving him a crouched running speed of (apparently) 60kph or so. He vigorously claims it's not a hack though. Yeah... Right. :rofl: I didn't have a chance to ask him which Torrent he got his hacked game from. The "option" he claims is available is not part of the store-bought, legally owned game. Not mine anyway (and I looked for it, just to see if this wasn't some horrendous over-sight by UBI/GRIN).

I joined one clan's co-op server ("DR", and asked for permission to join) this afternoon ... thinking I might be able to enjoy some good co-op fun without anyone hacking it up. WRONG. One of the DR clan guys was zipping across the map spawning bad guys left and right, then getting repeatedly killed for his efforts. Of course all the bad guys he spawned overwhelmed the rest of us, but he was having fun. I wasn't, and left the server. And I can scratch one clan from my list of places to hang out (and maybe join?).

One thing I've noticed with the people using the speed and weapons hacks: they invariably manage to crash the server (or the players' game). The game wasn't meant to generate a hundred RPG explosions at once... silly ###### like that either gets players games crashing to desktop or crashes the server itself. Or both. But it's all in good fun, right?

I certainly hope that future renditions of the Ghost Recon franchise will pay a little closer attention to game security. Unfortunately it appears that opening the game up for community modding also means that the game is open to those bright individuals with no scruples. You know, the ones who ruin it for the rest of us. Of course those individuals rarely *pay* for the game in the first place, so they have nothing to lose when the game becomes corrupted from their hack attempts.

Got your PM and link, thanks!

And yeah, I've noticed the hackers suck... Rather funny IMO. Example: Started one mission (one of the default co-ops, Timber I believe) and immediately noticed a player zipping all over the map. He got killed repeatedly while firing off dozens of GL rounds. By the time the rest of us had mopped up the mess he had left, he scored something like 10 kills with over 20 deaths. I killed 30+, took out three targets with C4 and had not died once. I fail to see how the hacks helped that guy at all...

Since when has there ever been a Gentlemans Agreement in open servers...particularly open servers without A/C enabled?

Making note of problematic servers or of questionable players is one thing...but to be wringing your hands over the issue after all of this time, when the obvious answers are right in front of you within the information provided by the server browser?

Just my opinion but complaining about the weather makes about as much sense. ;)

Too bad there aren't more gentlemen -of whatever age- actually playing, instead of the script-kiddies whose main delight is seeing how much mayhem they can cause.

I will continue to name names as I see them using obvious cheats or hacks. If that's "hand-wringing", so be it.
