The Overview
What we do...

People often come here and ask: "What do you guys do? You don't offer a Banlist like other Anti-Cheat Organizations (ACOs) to ward off cheaters, you're not a real clan, so what are you"?

A: We are:

A bunch of gamers who help clans make their servers stronger cheat-free environments.
A bunch of clans who share our knowledge between each other as well as with people outside of our clan.
A bunch of people having fun.

Q: Then what can you do for us?
A: We can:

Integrate you into a lot of Gaming-communities all over the web.
Give you insight about the existing ACO's.
Answer questions about a lot of complicated things (How to build Maps, etc.)
Help you when you have problems with your computer or advise you on related topics.
Keep you informed about Games, Patches, Mods and general Gaming Info.
Help you improve your gaming, in theory and practice.
Inform you about secure clans and secure servers for your favourite game.

We provide a well-structured FORUM (http://www.hackhunters.com/forum/index.php) so there will be no more time wasted searching for the right Information. As a registered forum user, you will be able to access a whole new segment of resources!

Q: What has all this got to do with Hack-Hunting?
A: The above mentioned items are there to make honest communities stronger, but our main reason for having formed -HH- is to catch cheaters, change their attitudes so that they need not be caught again, and, reinforce anti-cheat standards in the gaming society at large.

How we do this:

We inform Gamers on ways to detect cheaters.
We cooperate with various AC's in all gaming sectors to keep YOUR game safe.
We invent and support server side mods to prevent cheating.

Q: There are other communities also providing these things, why should I join you?
A: Not exactly as many of the ACO's have relatively focused efforts while we provide a wider range of gereral efforts and expertise. For instance, in each subsection in the forum, we have assigned expert Leaders for that particular category who can help you with all types of issues.

Q: Whats the catch? Nobody would do that for free...
A: We would and are. We are honest people who want to make the world a better place for everyone. Come in and check it out! If you can contribute something to the database of knowledge, all the better!

Q: Then what am I waiting for?
A: You tell us...

Specialty: Gaming

I&#39;m kinda your average gamer, mostly active in AA and BF2, so anything you want to ask me about gaming tactics or specific questions to games is probably in the right place. I&#39;m also in contact with quite a few clans, so anything you want to ask me about how to run one, where to recruit and so on is also fine. Finally, I&#39;ve been a Server Admin in AA for quite some time now so I might even be able to help you out with that. My Profile (http://www.hackhunters.com/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=14)

Specialty: Application Review, Administration

Our application process to become a Hunterbean is a simple process on the applyers part. You just need to provide us with one of your GUID&#39;s for a PB supported game, or tell us that you play some other game that includes an anticheat engine. You also have to provide your clan website and names that you have used in the past and currently in the games that you play. Once you have subitted your application, it falls on our Administration Staff, mostly me though. We have denied about 10 for cheating and not disclosing it and many more for applications that are never completed, or the person has never registered on our website. We currently get 1-3 applications per week and they are ususally processed very quickly. Our Trusted Associate base is also steadly going up as new orginizations find out about us, especally since we are only approaching on our first year of the orginization running.

Make sure you register for the webiste... (http://www.hackhunters.com/forum/index.php?action=register)
And, apply to become a new Hunterbean! (http://www.hackhunters.com/13_apply/apply.html)

Specialty: General Administration.

Sandbox2 offers those interested in modeling their own environments for the Crysis series of games a wealth of power that is relatively easy to learn, given our tutorials that is, which is what I&#39;ve been working on lately. We hope to expand our modding tutorial database for other games like Call of Duty games, ARMA and the BattleField series.

Off-Roading Map: An extension of this work with Sandbox2 will be the creation of a &#39;Dune-Buggy&#39; map which, if you&#39;ve seen our recent YouTube production "Off road adventure with chickens" you&#39;ll understand that as a sub-category of this game series it might turn out to be a lot of fun driving around, up and down over mounds, making jumps and doing spin-outs.
