Full Version: Exploiting Records
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
It has come to my attention that many players (admins included) have been using exploits in plugins like no-clip and cpmenu to better stage times, or in some cases even better their map times. This is unacceptable, any exploit or loop-holes fall under rule #8 and are punishable, this includes exploits such as... using cpmenu to maintain speed from other styles, using no-clip to get places you shouldn't, and still set map times.

I know it seems harmless but anything that gives you an advantage over the other players is obviously not allowed. I have updated rule #8 to include "plugins" and will look into fixing problem at the source and see if a patch can be made. Consider this a warning to all and spread the word, glitching or exploiting plugins is not allowed period.
He SPEAKS!
So if i made my cps in cpmenu with auto strafe before a certain stage and use the cp for the record of auto strafe on the stage i pre is that ok? and can i use auto strafe cps for auto bhop?
I'm more worried about crossing styles. Like taking a good auto strafe run and using that cp start to get other style records.
Maybe we can fix cpmenu to delete all saved checkpoints upon switching style. I think the noclip issue is mostly taken care of on the !NC plugin since it will stop all velocity on ending noclip, but the admin command noclip can still be abused for some cases.
For all the records that people got with these exploits, will they all be erased and gone. Or from now on we should take action to control this?

Any records known to be exploited should be reset, in the end I will have to rely on some honesty. Any player caught exploiting plugins in the future should be punished, any Admins caught should be reported. We have a fair system with warnings and kicks, so it shouldn't take long for the word to get around.

I have also updated rule #8 to include record exploits, record glitching could result in a total wipe & possible ban.
