    There was a method floating around that unlocked the hidden characters in the game without having the user complete the single player missions. If someone used this method to unlock the characters and joins a server using a default UTSecure-110 install, they will be labeled as an insecure client.

    Which makes me wonder if UTSecure-110 will also label those who unlocked the characters legitimately as insecure. No idea. Not that anyone actually did this.

    Question anyone can answer for me please....

    Regarding the UTSecure2K4.ini file.

    Do we copy and paste the contents of this file into our server's ut2004.ini, or does this exist as a stand-alone file residing in the \system folder that somehow gets read automatically ???

    I seem to remember in the earliest days of UTSecure for UT2K3 that we copied and pasted this file into our UT2004.ini, but the help for this version does not mention that, and seems to refer to it as a stand-alone .ini file.

    Help, please ..

    If you use the default install of UTSecure, the following things (among others) will trigger an insecure client:

    - client-side brightskins
    - hacked clients that unlocked the hidden characters

    I also have reports of people restoring their default xplayersx.upl files and STILL not being able to reconnect. Dr. SiN - why is this and how can someone "restore" their client?

    If you want (or need) to allow client-side brightskins and clients that unlocked the hidden characters, remove these two lines from the UTSecure2k4.ini file (** WARNING - this may open your server to allow malicious skins such as black skins, triggerbot skins, and aimbot skins **):

    Code:
    Checks=(FName="xplayersl1.upl",MD5="18e217ed49e980c98c0c44444cc0d228",MD5Type=2)
    Checks=(FName="xplayersl2.upl",MD5="30e5f5645bdd7c67bb7edea2bb22d3dd",MD5Type=2)
    Oh - and I hope the Server Admin list comes back soon. Withdrawl sucks.

    Did you get my e-mail regarding that UT Optimizer and it's possibility of being a CD Key stealer? Lotsa people used it. I mean, LOTS. Just wondering what measure's can be taken to ensure people's key's are protected.

    Hi Dr. S,

    1) Does UTSecure still remove our servers from the "Standard Servers List ??? I'm guessing you fixed that ??

    2) Does UT Secure take noticeable server CPU cycles to run??

    3) Why does the zip contain a zip, within the Zip?? What is in that other Zip, it looks like the same files <scratching head> ??

    Thx!!

    I guess this might be he reason for the stuttering on 16 man and under game servers then.


    I like these updates that you keep giving, please do keep us posted.

    Does this include the speed hacks I hope?

    I also have a few GUID's of a couple of the ELF lot and XLC if anybody is interested in adding them to the Banned ID List of their servers

    This goes to everyone. While I'm happy to take id's of suspected cheaters and manually add them to a watch list (or verify against a list of who we are already tracking) don't expect them to be instantly banned. We manually verify each ban before we make it. I'm making the system a little more automatic (right now, I have to be watching for an alert, in the future, it will be IM'd right to me the moment we lock on to one of them).

    Well, at least I know why the stats are down. Tis cool. Fix up the important things then get the 'fluff' working too.

    Have a nice day.

    I have demos of known speedhackers and I'm wondering should I send the demos in or save it cause its a waste of time. If I should send them in then could you please post the email address. Thank You...

    Please Server Admins load up UTSecure... It can only benefit your server.
