DEMO, Scroll down to find your game for instructions...
If you are streaming PBBans, teach everyone on your server these two steps in recording a Demo: /record cheater and /stoprecord by putting a message on your server. Since PBBans accepts demo recordings, you can even have guests help you keep your server free of cheaters.


You can NOT capture the Score Board or the Console, or PunkBuster's pb_plist using the in-game Demo record feature... please use a screen shot to capture these. Check out the XFire screen shot feature as these are automatically uploaded and available for every AntiCheat unit and HunterBean to see and download.

Why Use DEMO's: Demo's are great for someone to record their own game or record someone else's game while in spec because the resulting file sizes are very small, the video can be viewed at full screen and it shows all the smoke, action, sounds, that the player experienced. They are also good in that additional video capture programs can then record any specific highlights of the action.

The down side of demo's is that the person viewing the demo must have the game installed, they can't pause, stop or quit the demo when it is playing and they don't literally show cheats but they can be valuable in exposing someone who is cheating. Every gamer should know how to make a demo for their game. HackHunters will try and provide tutorials for each game in clear, step by step, easy to understand, and in plain english, instructions.

If you have any comments, please post, we may use your information to add to an existing post giving you the credit. If you have basic steps for a game you play, add them here, we'll modify them as required to meet our requirements for 'step by step...' instructions. Thanks.

NOTES: Demos give HackHunters the ability to view all the action of a spec'd player. Then we can make a separate video of only the relevant parts of the demo to be used as evidence against or for a suspect.

In order to link to a demo, you will have to upload it to a server that can host it, so others can link to it. Here are a few places where you can get your demo hosted:

www.wikiupload.com (http://www.wikiupload.com)
www.badongo.com (http://www.badongo.com)
www.yousendit.com (http://www.yousendit.com)
www.bigupload.com (http://www.bigupload.com)
www.Rapidshare.com (http://www.Rapidshare.com), great for quickly emailing demo to info@hackhunters.com
www.yourfilehost.com (http://www.yourfilehost.com)

Be sure to zip the file first.

If you have a demo of a cheater, and you've filled out a REPORT A SUSPECT (http://www.hackhunters.com/05_reportasuspect/report.html) form, you can email us the demo and we will host it for you.

The Crysis command console can be opened or closed at any time during the game by pressing the '~' key (the key above TAB, or below ESC). The console provides a real-time method of accessing the CryEngine2 game engine and altering command variables dynamically.

By default, you are restricted to only a handful of console commands (12) you can use which will work; entering any other valid commands will simply receive an error message. This 'restricted mode' can be permanently lifted by either using the con_restricted 0 command in the console, or by adding con_restricted=0 to your System.cfg file.

You can also list commands in the console at any time by entering the first few letters of them and pressing the TAB key. For example entering r_ and pressing TAB will list all the console commands starting with r_.

To use a console command correctly, enter the command variable and then the value to assign to it. For example, to turn Motion Blur off using the command console, open the console and type the following, then press enter:

r_motionblur 0


r_GetScreenshot [0,1,2] - If this command is set to 1 or 2, it immediately takes a screenshot and places it in your \My Games\Crysis\ScreenShots directory. By default the F12 key is bound to this command, so if you wish to take a screenshot just press F12.

capture_file_format [jpg,bmp,tga,hdr] - Allows you to set the format for screen captures. The default is JPG.

e_screenshot [1,2,3] - There are a range of commands starting with e_screenshot that can be used to take a variety of types of screenshots in the game. You can use commands such as e_screenshot_file_format, e_screenshot_width and e_screenshot_height to set the parameters for the output of the screenshot. The default output folder is Screenshots found under your \Program Files\Electronic Arts\Crytek\Crysis\Game\ directory.

capture_folder [path] - Determines the path to which screen captures are made, can be specified manually, e.g. capture_folder C:\Temp. The default output folder is the \Program Files\Electronic Arts\Crytek\Crysis\CaptureOutput directory, created when you first capture something.


capture_frames [0,1] - If set to 1, this begins continuous screen captures multiple times a second in the format specified by the capture_file_format variable, to the path specified by capture_folder. The default output folder is the \Program Files\Electronic Arts\Crytek\Crysis\CaptureOutput directory,

NOTE: at this time we are not sure if these 'continuous screen captures' can be played back within Crysis. If they are saved as individual screen shots, some video programs will allow you to 'create a video using individual frames'.
