accused of hacking, but no idea what the hell is happening to my ship.

Post by Vanity on Wed Aug 01, 2012 9:37 am

Can someone help me?? I have asked longshot as well as zigzagjoe ( i think ) about the files... I ahve recently moved files from my brother's account, to that of my new laptop.
This is due to reasons of download speeds being very slow in Perth Australia. I have had people telling me that my rockets are going beserk, but that everything else is normal.
My reload speed is apparantly two seconds... by my iPhone timer. And everything seems fine to me. I have replaced the JSON files with new ones, and even tried having steam
help me with this problem, but it doesn't seem to work. I hope not to get banned, as I ahve absolutely no idea why the hell this is happening.

Can anyone help me??

BTW if i was hacking, i'd have put everything up... not just the rockets. -_- so please. be less aggressive than this and at least ask me before accusing. This has been happening since yesterday
and only seems to happen with a sidewinder. none of the other ships. I love this game and hope that someone can help me with the stupid problem...

^^Only happens when I hold down right mouse button. if i click it once... apparantly it just fires one rocket. So if anyone has any ideas as to why the hell this is happening. please let me know!
My dead man's reputation is sort of dying coz of this problem and I don't really want to play anymore now that this is happening.

Thanks,

Vanity

I would uninstall and reinstall

a clean client should fix your issue.

"Hello, IT. Have you tried turning it off and on again?"

This. Also what AoC said.

If your on the steam version you can probably just go into properties and verify game cache files. I have had to do this twice.

Yeh I tried the verification and even checked the JSON files one by one... I can't seem to personally find a problem with it, but there definitely is. I think I might just reinstal the game and if it doesn't work after that, I might ask WJ about this glitch.

i have a theory... could just be your ping, if it is substantial enough... if you noticed, the game client starts and stops animation based on cues from the server. the client renders firing animations as if the trigger were held down until the server tells it that it has now stopped shooting.

if nothing else, if the guy accusing you of spamming had spamming set up for himself, he would see you 'spamming' rockets if the server couldnt send him the fire / stop-fire animation events for your ship fast enough... this is because the game will render other ships shooting at whatever rate you would be if you were in that ship. eg, if i were to hack my stingray to fire 50 shots a second, every stingray i see would look like it is doing the same from the point of view of my game client due to the start-fire / stop-fire animation commands - whether or not there are that many shots coming at me is impossible to tell without flying into all of them and monitoring the damage you take. Rockets, however, are stand-alone entities that you will see as many of as there are actually on the server, if someone was shooting multiple rockets from one event they are either in an M10, A80, hacking or the game horribly glitched (multiple packets / packets dropping? check pingtest.net to the game server).

so yeah, let WJ know, and keep an eye on that guy in case he is spamming himself and trying to shift blame.

I have currently been able to fix it, (I tried running my own script over the checksum script to see if it was me that was at fault, however the checksum calculator as well as the checksum “checker” found no problem whatsoever… this didn’t help…) I will mention that I was running the script using the files that are locally based, and I did not enter the game. (to make sure it wouldn’t crash). Reason for this, was because Steam could not find any problems with my files, as the checksums were considered “correct”. My script didn’t find anything wrong with it, even though I ran it through several times… :/
The way I fixed it last night was by completely reinstalling everything and getting rid of all local files. Well, I still can’t see any problem but when I played no one complained… So I “think” it’s working.
## note:##
Everything was working fine until I moved the files from my old computer to my new computer (they were corrupted for some reason, so I decided to copy it from my brother’s laptop which also has the game. it works perfectly fine and I have never seen him supposedly “hack”.) I think it would either have to be that someone in-game was hacking (not necessarily the person accusing… could well have been anyone else in-game) and everyone could see it (not server synchronised), or something was horribly glitching with my game. I have tried playing again in an empty server to see what happens when I shoot the rockets and everything seems to be going fine now. I don’t really feel like joining any servers with people in case I get branded a cheater which is something I don’t want happening to me. -_-
So if anyone has some time this week, let me know so you could check for me… Coz anyone on this forum at least knows what my problem is, others do not, so it’s better to be safe than sorry.

Disable hax
Delete game, reinstall
Test packet loss
Test latency
Reset modem and/or router
Try different machine on same WAN connection

I've tried all that, and I finally figured out what the problem was. A few of the files were corrupted... Even after verifying with steam?! I figured this out after going through each and every file one by one. Took a looooong time. -_- Next time I'm just downloading. Even if the network connection is about 40 Kbps.

Excellent. Steam sometimes breaks things. Instead of verifying cache integrity, just delete the local files and re-install. Also, the game isn't well tested... especially with latency. So anytime there is an error, it could be my fault. So, I won't ban or delete accounts without plenty of verification. --wj

Yep, thank you... Thank goodness. I didn't like the idea of getting banned, so I have been trying everything to fix it as quickly as possible. I have managed to resolve the issue though. Smile
If i encounter anymore problems, I'll let you know.

Well, first of all, my net is crappy because of the frosting of the lan cables, and there was something corrupted with the files that Steam would not detect. I had to completely re-install the game to get it to work. It took an entire night of downloading at like a rate of 15 kbps... so yeah. hahaha xP no idea why my steam is so slow with downloading. My speedtest says I have an 11 megabit down and 1 megabit up.
so no idea. Smile problem resolved though.
