Just a reminder that...
Once in a while, we remind ourselves that cheats in qw do exist. Usually not for a good reason. Someone got caught, or, well, someone got caught
Gladly, today is harder to cheat in qw than it was 5 years ago. Still, there are some fellas that want to take the risk (and ruining other ppl's fun).
This time it was in Brazil. Some guy called Synister got caught using wallhack. Here's the proof:
Snap taken in a match *AnM* vs Low in 12/03/2009 00:27-AM in KTX UOL-GAMES server. Can easily see the enemy underwater.
To take a snapshot from a client is a feature that is implemented in mvdsv for years. It has helped caughting wallhackers several times. Basically the server sends a request to take screenshot in the client and then saves it, and the admin can download it. That's why it has a strange appearance. This feature is protected, it can only be used by the server's admin.
In Brazil the admins suspect that are more players using this cheat, at least here in europe it doesnt happen.
Its sad to talk about this here, but sometimes we got to remember that some ppl likes ruining other ppl's fun. and we hate them.Here
you can check the demo if you're interested.
