Hello,

I returned to q3 after few years and I was thinking of creating proper anti-cheat system for q3. It could be very simple to add it to q3server - if server anti-cheat cvar is 1 then query ACmaster server to get clients with anti-cheat turned on, and put rest to spectators/kick them with appropriate message.

Features:
- scan whole process memory for modifications
- communicate with the ac master server
- it would NOT affect your FPS or ping
- in game command to check who uses ac on current server
- based on engine so it would work with all mods
- some cool tricks to make cheat-coders life harder

I have already started working on this project but I would like to hear your opinion. My time is limited and I don't want to waste it.

Why do I think I can do it? I work as a software engineer for well known anti-virus company. I have very deep knowledge of reverse engineering and PE file format, and great minds around me (:

Tell me what you think and feel free to ask questions Happy

Re: New Anticheat System for Quake3

If you manage to make a new defense against scammers, I think you will all be very grateful, The main thing is that the new system against scammers does not change the game, As it was with AWH, Did not create lags, did not spoil the gameplay ( Just tell me why you need it? You play and under what nickname? ( Or maybe you want to do it for money, Just say what interest you have? You just registered on the site and already want to help us, I would not ask you these questions if you were an active player) Just we had already here people with dubious products, Tried to sell them

Re: New Anticheat System for Quake3

I understand your concerns, I don't want to sell this tool to you. It's interesting project for me and maybe I can use it later for my master's degree project or other games.

As I said I returned to q3 to play some osp ca/ictf and got my ass kicked a little so I started my research if any ac is alive. found active forums esreality and yours, I also asked old friends who still play and they liked my idea so I decided ask here and there.

Re: New Anticheat System for Quake3

Don't bother. There're plenty of cheaters(proven+caught) around playing every day on the few remaining populated servers and nobody cares. Just my 2 cents.

+1 for the idea and the initiative though. Just take it at some place where it will be useful.

"...War brings death... and wounds and pain to both sides... there's nothing harder to accept than the deaths of those you love... so you believe... they could never die... especially those who haven't known war... you try to find meaning in death... but... there's only pain... and hatred... that you don't know what to do with...dying like trash... neverending hatred... pain that never heals... that.. is war..."

I think windows client should be working first. Also any stats regarding player platform would be useful for me. Does ExcessivePlus know which platform players are using?

but we could force them to use AC in order to play on these servers

Re: New Anticheat System for Quake3

Hey duch
This place is kind-a dead for years and here cheaters report them selves on the forum (still not getting banned) Happy

+1 for your idea but you will need a lot of determination to make it live since the admins are having hard time to respond in time
GL with the master's
