A lot more script cheaters seem to be getting banned last couple weeks, thanks to reports from the warnings given by the meter and other sources. Gameforge seems to be finally taking this very seriously. So get your fraps ready when arm gives you a hacker warning and report, one by one they will all fall :) The warnings were quite controversial at first and obviously most of the hackers complained and tried to defend themselves saying it was bs etc, but now we are being proved right ^^
Been testing the parser speed in last couple sieges, and after the optimization and debug code removal in last few versions it’s now barely using any cpu. Even with yesterday’s siege showing around 600 players, processing of data was still smooth :) You can check this with Settings/Show processing time. This will show how long it needs in ms to process data every second tick, and how many lines per second are being checked. If it would reach 1000+ it means it can’t cope with the amount of data and dps numbers will be off and innacurate, but so far I haven’t seen it over 100-200.
Finally, Gameforge is starting to take action on the rampant hackers ruining the European servers. I got notice several players were banned yesterday following reports from the warnings given by ARM of hackers in server Telemachus. So please keep it up, continue reporting all those players you see using script hacks like no-animation, teleports, glidehacks and anything suspicious. It’s really nice to see GF willing to do something about the mess left behind by NC :)
Updated Telemachus script hacker list with some players from pegasus gr (noanimation/teleport etc).
