When was Tribes most exciting for you
IMO when you lose base on RD, have to cluster, and end up winning

~dickschnitzel~ 01-17-2018 17:05

When teams are properly balanced and everyone is trying their best, and match lasts a very long time. At that point you're having so much fun you don't even care about score / winning.

Or when you're playing arena on big maps and everyone uses disc/plasma/nade and you're o sniping everyone from half a map away. people rage so hard it's wonderful. bonus points if you're listening to them on voip. hello shadoh & mich

yeah from a macro perspective a really great pickup game with mid-high and high level players on both sides was fun as ****. i miss those a lot.

i also miss o-sniping but i can't say it was the most thrilling. most funny, maybe. another funny 1999 when i was 11 i'd load up HPCs on scara and fly them way oob :(

HO'ing into enemy base and finding un-deployed turrents

I recieved this last night from a credible source who told me to keep his identity a secret. Just read for yourself

> hey are u there?

> After thinking about it for a long time I felt the need to let the truth be known. For a long time Pennywise, you have been accusing many of the top players in LT of cheating and for the most part you have been laughed at and mocked for it. Let it be known now that your suspicions were all correct and all you lacked is the proof. I intend to give you the proof that you have need to reinstate stability into the community.
> About 6-7 months ago while on the team Texas Rangers ' * ', the now inactive player RaZorStone developed a script that improved chaingun accuracy incredibly. The script functioned in such a manner that it would be deadly accurate regardless of the players ping. The script is toggle based so a player can turn it on or off while playing. This toggle has made it difficult to determine whether or not someone is cheating because their chain
> Not surprisingly that pact that was made by the members of the Texas Rangers was soon broken. Different teams were formed by former members of Texas Rangers and many of them strived to be #1 on the TWL ladder. To gain an extra competitive edge the script was given to a select few members of the community. I can not exactly pin point all that use it but I guarantee you that carn0va, CruelVenom, IceHawk, and Chump use this script to improve chain

He also wanted me to post that he was sorry. Hopefully this sheds some light on the subject.

Haha, I had a 33k modem but, yeah, similar. Game somehow ran though. :shrug:

bugs_ 01-17-2018 20:26

In 2008 oldman asked me if we could implement some anti cheat on sh-thole. at first we were logging only and not kicking. in the bugs_ tribes lab several new tests were developed and evaluated. many were discarded because of false positives. a few very nice tests survived and we were logging away.


and nobody knew

then someone screwed nofix and publicly released his bypass. he asked if we could start kicking for it - sure thing.

im sure ive told the full story before, but bugs_ told me i was failing a certain lasthope scan. i wasn't cheating so it seemed odd. i downloaded plasmatics basic install and re-joined and asked bugs_ if i was still failing the scan - answer was yes.

i tried like 10 different configs and failed scans with all of them. knowing for sure that i wasn't cheating, i had to look at different reasons for failing a scan - like something in my system hooking .dlls

didn't find anything until i ran an anti-rootkit tool from a bootable disc - and it found a rootkit

removed rootkit, re-joined the server and passed the lasthope scans with the same configs

there was no other evidence on my system of the rootkit, no unusual activity no anti-virus popups - so im quite grateful to bugs_ for helping me troubleshoot it and bringing my attention to it. who knows how long i would have gone on infected without knowing.

if i wanted to pass lasthope scans i could have, someone even gave me a chunk of code to make it easier :wink: :wink: :nudge: :nudge: :you:
