The Rescue For General Online DeathMatching!
We all know that we can hardly avoid having weird cheaters dominating the hiscore lists.
But i see ways to at least use them in a practical way with this new mod (idea stage tho).
It would be a new gametype called DoomTrooper where the current leader gets fought by
the others! Now this isnt that new so far but with my genious additions indeed arises
a unique unseen gameplay. First the basic appearance shalt be zombielike for all players
of course except the leading DoomTrooper who must have its model changed to e.g.
Xan and also have besides more armor and such one power weapon like instagib.
These properties (models/weapon/ect.) were best made configurable via the mod menu.
Lets go in detail abit more - the zombie players have to killhit the DoomTrooper to become
it themselves what shall happen during the matches. If there were more then five of them
a second DoomTrooper could come into play. There are still some difficulties like
spawnprotect for the new DoomTrooper or pickup realtions but this could indeed
decrease the hatred against the boardleaders and change it into more fun.
If you are skilled enough and like the idea - feel free to realize in your own name!
another idea for defusing cheater activity
A game like UT could have any thinkable cheater advantages as normal!
Then all players were again at the same level and the fairness were restored.
Im talking about the invisible client enhancements like
> always dodge - doubletapping for normal walk
> player radars with opponents plus hud throughwall display
> viewer detection display
> autoaiming and target lockons
> unlimited zooming with all weapons
> viewpoint stabilisation
> auto combo
> maybe ghosthack - if nobody sees it (!)
But that all shall also be hideable for players who search more challenge.

A resume to my own thoughts:
- beginners and fair players need better chances!
Thats also why i still like BFVietnam more than BF2
- they simply removed the quick aim with zoom and
also BF2 for me indeed was very unplayable
(at least considering aiming advantages).

Call me paranoid but i seriously think there are too many subjects with
general cheating motivation for the persistance of online dueling games!
As there were: egocentric retard admins putting fakeplayers on servers
and fooling around with joiners for fun - rivaling game makers who even
gonna be the source of all the filth - just retards in egoistic fragmanias
- morons who hate violence portrayals and the gamer individuum itself
- plus more possible unexpected astonishers. Normal gamers simply are
few chances left and the servers get abandoned.
P.S.: Admit the truth and realize that
the cyborg toons are humanitys last hope!

Side note: spotting the game developements in general i
remarked how the graphic quality agressively goes down!
Just logic - making a low-poly/res scene/character look perfect
is much simpler than in high-end. If this weird trend continues
next new engines will require to sacrifice the artists entire lifes
for optimizing just one game! Thats probably why even nowadays
many players (incl. me) prefer UT2004 before UT3 though im still riddling
how they made it that its characters look half size compared to UT99.

In UT2k4 was something like this called Mutant...
Yes - but the stealth mutant system with radar is just abit spartanic!
What about configurable special models and weapons and maybe other
stuff like health or armor regen plus number for the mutants.
It is feasible, but still it will be a Mutant...
BTW. It shouldn't be hard to port this mod to UT3.
...and I don't know about you, but there is not much time for customisation of your weapon in DM...

No - its more like the mutant/s (supertroopers) always get
this one superweapon maybe with unlimited ammo this way.
P.S.: At least i dont see any problems in playing
undead scum - its even more like crazy fun!

Considering AntiCheat orientation:
Im still unsure if the turning speeds match the general game speed settings or not!
But i can say from experience that the anoyingst thing is to attack a victim from behind
only to see how it immediately turns and picks you heads out!
Even more - stamina bar just for dodging and doublejumping
and: the greatcoolest idea at all - regenerating armors!

Note that your questions via PMs will be ignored if they actually belong in the forum.
<elmuerte> you shouldn't do all-nighters, it's a waste of time and effort
<TNSe> its always funny to find code a week later you dont even remember writing
<Pfhoenix> what's worse is when you have a Star Wars moment
<Pfhoenix> "Luke! I am your code!" "No! Impossible! It can't be!"
What - i shall waste my life with learning UEd coding?
Sorry but (lmao) thats way too much for me.
As i already explained - i cant see any point in developing
games before i get some normal customizable thang.
These ideas are more thought for some upcoming Epic
game maybe even a UT99 reboot - such stuff.

My weird death paranoia led me to new revolutionary suspicions.
Private network providers try to attract players with spam servers
and questionable forums! So my best idea be more stable official
servers where players could still experience the actual gameplay.
With all this being respected theres still actually
pretty simple way to save a online shooting game!
Its the good old quickaim known from the first battle
fields and older tribes what works realistical like
when someone focuses his view farther.
So to say the absolute no1 must-have for coming
games (oc besides the turning speed detectors)
since it at least gives one a decent chance
against the less weird modifications.

Yes - only i fear that wouldnt be enough since the weird admins
obviously switch the fakeplayers and hunt you down like ****.
Maybe the developments of future games consider this as well
and change certain things.
Server Host Reward System
Okay peoples - the final solution smiled at my tortured brain!
Multiplayer game developers in future MUST be able to offer
server hosts rewards for goaled PLAYER populations.
That would probably mean players indeed in order
had to purchase optional multiplaying in general.
Dynamic Fear System
Another thing i had to consider - the extreme suicide friendlyness!
How does the great man always say - i have the power - and hes
very right because showing up with fight abilities normally demoralizes
weaker or outnumbered opponents. A old idea of mine - make players
in said situations shiver what disables aiming but not running away.
While playing warband (they patched the insane twohander speeds)
i recognized that those serverside playerclaim bots cause nasty lags!
Presumed this be a legal method to advertise a cared server where
also most players join this stays a marginal problem - the motivation
sinks and the trust in any servers gets lost.
Did i already mention the lack of
mouselook speed limit in older games?
Unbelievable but this would even
abit hinder aimcheater success!
Anyways the new mouses allow
more than insane speeds which
normal bodies could never aquire.
