This thread is for a variety of Anti Cheat Sites, some may be just starting up, some may be closed.

As we discover them, we will post a quick link to any AntiCheat services, associations or other AC's here. As we get more information on them we will create a separate thread for them.

If you know of a AC that we haven't listed, please post a link in this thread... we welcome all, and I mean ALL AC efforts from around the world.

Anti-Cheater Alliance: (german)

CS Arena (german... not sure if AC or not)

UT Files (Unreal Tournament?)

Server Watch
For Call Of Duty (4) and Medal Of Honor
ServerWatch AntiCheat is a program that run on the pc of the players. It hook-up to the corresponding ServerWatch Server that is monitoring the game the player has joined – this is done fully automatic without any Setup from the User. If you change the Game Servers - the AntiCheat Client will follow. If the ServerWatch AntiCheat Client is connect to an ServerWatch server it communicates with the ServerWatch Server and make sure your Game installation is Cheat free. If you leave the game your AntiCheat Client also get disconnected from the AntiCheat Server.

Value Anti Cheat (aka VAC) for Steam Gamers
The Valve Anti-Cheat system is enabled for servers displaying the Secured shield logo. If a user connects to a VAC-Secured server from a computer with identifiable cheats installed, the VAC system will ban the user from playing on VAC-Secured servers in the future.
While server admins may choose to ban specific players, server admins cannot VAC ban players. The VAC system is automated - contacting Steam Support to report cheaters is not necessary, nor will Steam Support act on any information provided.
The VAC system reliably detects cheats using their cheat signatures. Any third-party modification to a game designed to give one player an advantage over another is classified as a cheat or hack and will trigger a VAC ban. This includes modifications to a game's core executable files and dynamic link libraries

AntiCheat for Battlefield Vietnam, Battlefield 1942, Battlefield 2, Warsow (integrated into game)... integrated into many leagues.
The BattlEye system consists of the BE Client and the BE Server that communicate with each other through the game's netcode. In addition, there is the BE Master which is queried for new core software and cheat detection updates. The BE Client (as well as the BE Server) runs within the game, allowing best possible detection of cheats.
BattlEye scans the game and the system in RAM and on HDD, mainly using generic methods that globally catch all cheats/hacks of one type (including private ones as far as possible).
In order to work, BattlEye requires absolutely no user input or server-side administration - it comes as is and does its job independently.

AntiCheat for HalfLife

www.thezproject.org (http://www.thezproject.org)


Currently looking for programmers skilled C/C++ developers to port their HLGuard over to HL2.

Less active than in the past, THE Z PROJECT is still available and viable for Half Life. In order to activate the topics in their forum, scroll down to the bottom of their forum page. You can bring out old topics by selected another "age-cutoff-date" at
the bottom of a forum ;)

HLGuard was a Half-Life 1 (+ mods) MetaMod plugin.
We did have some internal discussions about a HL2 equivalent, but
nothing came out of it.

HLGuard 1.8
HLGuard is a server-side anti-cheat system for Half-Life and it's many MODs. Originally developed under the name CSGuard by OLO before moving to United Admins who adapted it for use with all HL mods, the project has now been given a new home here at TZP where we plan to further develop it's features and introduce new detection methods.

RESGen 2.0.2
RESGen is a tool to create res (resource) files for Half-Life.
If a Half-Life map has a corresponding res file, Half-Life is able to send all resources the map uses to the clients, if they don't already have them. This helps a great deal when running a server with custom maps, rather than the default ones. Most players do not have these custom maps and the resources that should go with them. The res file enables them to download the map from the server via Half-Life and start playing right away. The problem with res files, however, is that it can take hours to create one if the resources used by a map are not known.

RESGen can shorten this time to mere seconds. It reads the maps BSP file and searches it for used resources. The results of this search are then used to create the res file.

AutoBan 0.8d
AutoBan is a server-side Anti-Cheat for Counter-Strike: Source with the goal of limiting cheating on public dedicated Counter-Strike: Source servers.

Counter Hack. The leading anti-cheat site for Counter Strike and a wide variety of games. It has evolved into an information powerhouse. Originally being focused towards the First-Person-Shooter Counter-Strike, Counter Hack has evolved to envelope all on-line games, since First Person Shooters are far from the only genre of games that are plagued with illegal hacks. Covering all major games styles (First Person Shooters, Real Time Strategies, and Role-playing games), Counter Hack is the most comprehensive gaming site dedicated towards anti-cheating for on-line games.

Counter Hack is also the central communication for all anti-cheating efforts. Forums dedicated towards anti-cheating, and IRC channels dedicated towards answering questions, and mailing lists to keep everyone informed with the latest information, Counter Hack is where all the action is at. Got a question? Ask it on our Forums, IRC Channel or e-mail us.

Several games supported.

What Is CheaterBans.Com - What Do We Do?
« on: October 21, 2008, 06:58:25 PM » Quote

CheaterBans.Com Is one of the newest Anti-Cheat organizations to enter the world of gaming. We are dedicated to tackling the cheaters, and combat the cheat suppliers who try to destroy our games and game-play. We aim to target subscription hack sites! This gives us the upper hand to have PunksBusted.Com and PBBans make these cheats detectable and give the ability to stream. In turn, this means every member of the cheat-sites we target will be publicly listed on PsB MBL (Master Ban List.) This is a better means of enforced banning. Start streaming your server(s) to PunksBusted.Com and PBBans today!

While we combat cheaters and target the hack suppliers, to ensure many cheats are made detectable by PsB and PBB. PsB and PBB are streaming Anti-Cheat solutions for your game servers. Most A-C sites (Anti-Cheat) can only ban for a majority of submitted cheats. Cheater Bans goes a little bit further and use a different method of banning, to alert Admins of players who Cheat/Script/Glitch, and have them banned.

We at CheaterBans.Com have what we call a LBI, (Local Ban Index.) This is a compiled database from submitted local ban lists.
Our LBI Admins will submit their bans for review. We will process those bans thoroughly and add them to our LBI if there is submitted proof for an individual whom has cheated. We will accept demos and punk buster screenshots as evidence (In some cases.)

A Few things you should know:

We ban for glitching.
We ban for submitted demos -- providing that our Review Staff feel there is sufficient evidence to indicate cheats in use.
Our submitted ban lists are decompiled and each player listed will require proof for the reason for banning, -- In order to be added to our LBI.
Once a ban list is submitted, it cannot be downloaded by any other admin other than Cheater Bans ban staff.
Players without proof of the ban will be dropped from the LBI. And will not be added.
We are currently only providing this service to BattleField 2 & CoD1/CoD:UO/CoD4/ET players only. Providing we get staff for other games. Then we will provide an LBI for your game too. However, you are still welcome to submit your Ban lists, regardless of game. We will still review your lists and process them!
We can assure the integrity and accuracy of our LBI will not result in honest players being banned. If such case would arise. We would lift the ban and remove it from our updated LBI file.
You can contact our Ban Manager: RAMC, via Email @ bans@cheaterbans.com.
