I never hid the fact attempting to hack the client on occasion, but I also reported my findings to the appropriate people.

If i risk losing my account for that, it speaks for itself that i will put T-search back in the freezer . I hope though that you don't stop trying to find and fix these vulnerabilities yourself.

When will the anti-SH be turned off? The TC was pretty much unplayable last night. It took me an hour to run 890m out to a mission

BTW- If you cheat on purpose at a FREE game(and it's not done to help out development) you are the lowest scum of the Earth and don't deserve to play.

Quote from policy;
3.11. You will not perform AFK camping of a spawn, NPC or cave. Camping is defined as repeatedly hunting a lair, spawn or NPC in succession. TC allows multiple accounts and connections, therefore using multiple toon instances to create the effect to "out damage" other players is considered AFK camping. There is only one toon actually operated by a single player and all successive toons are considered AFK camping. All toons in such instances are subject to disciplinary actions. Obviously, this camping rule does not restrict all multiple game instances. For example, it is acceptable for two game instances to be operated by one player where one instance is an AFK crafter sampling ground resources and the other is a character that is being played At The Keyboard.

Take some time to ready the new Policy, really. It will help remove most all doubts you might have.

All the bugs that I have ever found have taken away Items, not duped them. However, I have ocasionally seen Items pop up in my Inventory in place of others, i.e. a survival knife turned into some huge two-handed sword. Does this count as cheating? and if so, how do I go about correcting it ?I did not do this intentionally.

Wow......3 days old and it is 11 pages already!

Although my response will be buried, I also aplaud your professionalism in dealing with a very complex problem.

I also fully approve the move that that notice was supported by a quorum of Development staff as noted by the little signatures at the bottom.

As I have said before on another issue, I truely appreciate there being an apeal policy in place. Those that are monitoring can't always fully investigate claims of hacking and duping without investing time and resources that are moving the project foreward.

Good move and full support here.

Good points were made in the rubber-banding discussion that were difficult to disagree with. I don't usually favor a hard-line approach, but I also don't think people who would cheat are "in step" with the rest of us supporting the project. Cheating is a VERY intentional action.

Ban them completely from testing and let them know you're serious. If they want to come back when the game releases, give them a chance to do so then, and only then.

Sorry if I ask a dumb question, but Im a noob in case of network/serverstuff.

I get sometimes this "rubberbanding"; does it mean "I" cause "speedhack", or do I get it, because someone else did speedhack?

Just in case, the failure is on my side, how to prevent "speedhack".

Its not you, don't worry about it. Its the anti speed hack algorithm that's not working as intended and is causing rubber-banding. Someone else was speed hacking and the algorithm was applied to prevent it. They are tweaking a new one on internal TC and it will be replacing the old one soon.
