If q2pro doesn't do it for you, try aprq2.

Anticheat won't work on Linux.

No real network tweaks to help the same way there is in something like quakelive. Just gotta lead your shots. At 150 you'll notice a significant delay, but it is more playable than newer games that try to compensate and have weird behavior.

Focalor should duel me on a tourney server that is located in dallas so I have bearable packet loss.

I'll duel you on a tourney server. Sounds like a grand ol' time.

Always down for a duel. Email me @slobbonmycob@gmail.com. I get off work work tonight at 9pm ct... see you there  :badgrin: :badgrin:

Well props to you for actually playing tonight. Was fun.

You weren't saying anything dumb or being a nuisance on the server with your behavior. You should just drop the tag drama and stop doing the haxusations, and you'd do just fine with the crowd that is left playing. Tags do nothing for you at this point anyway.

  The funny thing about all this is the player in the video, was actually using a wall hack. 
This demo was a friend of mine using a modern (new) wall hack code. Nothing fancy, everything used to implement the code was free and can be googled (I even managed to do some magic with the IP used).

 :lolsign:

I mean if you don't understand anything about the game or how computer networking works, then that might be believable. Posting blatant lies does no one any good.

I did a good job on this one ;) I told you guys little pieces now you should put the rest together about the hack. Looking at what was said is a no fun, but looking at IP addresses closely is a better place to start. Happy hunting friends.
YOU need an ASS spanking as well.

I am going to elaborate a little on this because it is just hurting me to see this still going on. I'll try to keep it simple, no sense going too in depth.

Quake uses UDP for the network traffic. UDP does not have a handshake, and does not require confirmation that packets were received. So far so good for your statement.

Spoofing a source address with UDP traffic is a common practice by some parties around the internet who like to do rude things. This is most commonly done for having a server respond to the address spoofed rather than the actual origin. An example of this would be a DNS reflection attack, where you can send small data to a DNS server pretending to be a different IP, and the server responds with much larger data to the IP you spoofed which when amplified with a lot of requests results in a denial of service. So again, so far so good for your statement.

The problem comes when you consider we are not talking about a one way communication. The client has to talk to the server, the server has to talk to the client. You can spoof traffic and send it to the server pretending to be a client (just ignoring sequencing for simplicity), but the responses from the server would go to the IP you were pretending to be and not you. If you cannot have both, the connection will not function correctly.

Unfortunately you cannot actually steal an IP on the internet to the degree that you would receive the packets transmitted back from the server. You can potentially set up specific circumstances to do something similar on a local network only, but at the internet level it just does not work that way.

I would highly suggest reading up on basic networking such as switching, routing, peering, TCP, UDP, etc. as they are all very interesting topics and can help you have a better understanding of how the internet works. This is useful information for almost anyone with the way the world is set up around the internet these days. I am sure there are great digestible videos on youtube with animations aimed at children if these topics intimidate you.

The current thread is about whether justin/deft was cheating or not. He is not. Problem solved.

If you have future "bot drop" issues, just make another demo and post it, but be aware that you will be wrong in most cases with the level that you understand the game currently and that is fine. Quake does have a huge learning curve, and part of that curve is figuring out how better players do what they do.

This community is not that toxic, and even foc is willing to help some one who raises legitimate concerns. It becomes toxic when you stir up drama for no reason.

Side note: Most of what I am saying is based around quadz checking server information and posting the results here (mostly the name/ip check). If quadz is convinced, I am convinced. He runs all of tastyspleen, and arguing with him is a very quick way to put yourself in a bad situation if you enjoy quake2.

The player you demo'd had no signs of cheating in the play time captured. Leave it at that and don't make life difficult for yourself. It hurts your standing in the community more to argue and insult than it ever would to be wrong.

I'd suggest raising your own awareness of how to play the game at a higher level before worrying about whether other people are cheating.

If you see some one you think is cheating, then feel free to post more demos and some one will look over them. Just be aware that you will not be right most of the time until you have a better understanding of the game and the skill set necessary to spot things out of the ordinary. Also remember to keep these matters on the forums rather than the servers as shaming people for playing better than you only hurts what few people are left.

Try removing anticheat. If it works, then you can disable antivirus and put AC back to see if that is causing the issue.

Haha I had to log in just to post because this is funny.

Absolutely, 100%, not a wallhack

He is spamming items when no one is around, prefiring corners when no one is there, checking corners when entering rooms despite no one being there, reacting slowly to people coming into vision, AND he even gets blind sided by ssg at one point coming around a corner.

The funny part though, I'm almost entirely certain that justin is deft. While he is a very skilled player, anyone can look that noobish when screwing around with the low tier players on dm. If it isn't deft, then still funny, but not side splitting.

Quake / Re: Open letter to Quake 2 fam (servers dying fast)
« on: December 18, 2016, 04:46:42 PM »
Jehar honestly made the biggest difference from what I can remember. Weekly events, tried to get newer players involved, had the appropriate circles to advertise Q2 to other arena FPS players like QL duelers.

We'd need some one who was very social, in a lot of circles, was willing to teach, liked a lot of game modes, and could put on regular events with twitch streaming in order for any kind of anything to be successful. Maybe a duel or 2v2 tournament would be cool, but even like instagib events or jail break would really help. More casual community events such as the king of the hill event, but maybe in a format that doesn't eliminate new players so quickly would be cool. I don't think large cash prizes are necessary, but some would be cool. I think the biggest importance is a regular schedule of repeating events that happen every week.

Getting people to switch to Q2 isn't going to happen, but getting a few old schoolers to come back and play is likely and maybe giving some newer curious players a fun place to enjoy some events would be good. No real events going on in NA QL other than the odd CA tournaments, pubs, and pickups so it might be a good angle.

The other thing that everyone can keep in mind is that newer players with a competitive mind set typically like map variety so that they can see different styles and maybe get an advantage instead of playing the 2 decade old favorites of most of the people that are still kicking around. So when you do play, try to let newer players do the map picking and maybe get some knowledge of a good variety of maps just in case. (this mostly stands out for duel, not sure it is very applicable in other mods)

I don't think anyone with a negative stigma in the community should touch any type of admin position for any type of event. That includes most of the TDM players, retired or not, and most of the people vocal on the forum. We would need some one like Jehar to really make a difference, but he is too busy and doesn't care about Q2 anymore :(

Just had to throw in my 2 cents since I actually care about this subject. Glad I decided to check the forums and saw the thread.

I certainly hope this is some photoshopped joke. Any 50BMG round is gonna contain upwards of 600 grains. That'd be like trying to catch a baseball being shot out of a potato gun at 250mph barehanded. The Taurus Judge which is a snubnose revolver capable of firing 410bore shotshells is bad enough. This shit is just insane. :D

i find it amusing that they are AP rounds

I remember the same problem occurring with forkjumping, and the times were left up for about a week before someone actually did something. About 4 or 5 times from the bottom of the scoreboard were permanently deleted because of it. Just one of the many things that I don't agree with about how the jump server is currently being run. :<

If the jump server is "being run" anything like the ffa servers, the way those work is someone alerts me if there's a problem and I tend to it.


:exqueezeme:

since thomas decided to necro post, I'll contribute!

Quadz' "being run" in quotes referencing servers just made me think of a datacenter that is nothing but a bunch of sysadmins on a giant hamster wheel

the mental image was worth the necro post

Q2 Training Camp / Re: Players needing\wanting Training, sign up here

Oh man, do i suck  :bigcry: :)
Thing is when i play vanilla deathmatch i remember where all the weapons and armor etc are, i just get killed before i get to them. Back in the day,  when q2 first came out i was a terror, now im just lunch.
Anybody know of a how to or demo or want to meet me on a server?

easiest way of getting better is watching

1. watch good players play (spectator 1 on dm/vanilla, or stop by a tourney server when people are on there)

2. record demos of the games you play, and watch them afterwards to see what you did wrong

That's the glitch where you clip onto a brush and it pushes you really fast to the ceiling of a map? If that's the same glitch he used, there have been quite a few maps which have been hotfixed by admins, in order to prevent that glitch being used. Just notify one of the jump admins and they probably will help you out.

Hit me up in irc tonight and i'll fix it.

You have to really carefully inch yourself to the edge of a ledge, which will rocket you up to the top of the map. It won't work on certain ledges, though.

It's courteous to at least not do that on maps with 15 or more times on the board, since when you get a first place like that and an admin removes it, it permanently knocks off 15th place, leaving a hole in the scoreboard.

from this, it sounds like the jump community frowns upon using a glitch like this to get a good time on a map

so despite 2dum being 2dum, it is still kind of a dick move for ex to do that
