hey guys i am not a total noob like people here (rank 5 kd 1.32). I am just looking for some tips from pro people like Vile and javrie (and anyone else i can remeber). So does anyone wanna lend me some secrets (;

Tip: Redefine your notion of pro. If Vile is the high bar, you’re forever screwed.

Topic: CS Portable / PROBLEMS

To everyone saying too long to read:

Don’t read it. Most of the long posts you guys are complaining about on this thread have been reasonably well organized with bullets or numbering. The first few words almost always carry the sentiment of the paragraph. If you can’t extract the pertinent information it’s probably an issue with your reading comprehension, not the posts themselves.


I like how the CS:P team has nothing enlightening to say about the issues mentioned. The truth is that they are understaffed and simply don’t care. It seems clear that little progress will be made in the future to address any of the concerns in this thread.

I’m sure your feedback is appreciated, Pixel!

Well, yes it is. If votes by non-playable characters (zombies in zombie survival) are required to kick a player, that’s pretty broken.

If you play Asia server when you live in USA the ping as best will be 200, and having high end servers cost money. We never refused on fixing them, because we knew like you said: the game will die. When the people who are helping improve this game are working for free, we can’t tell them to hurry up, they have to make money for a living. We are making progress and we WILL address these problem as best as we can and as soon as we can..

Thank you for your patience.

you will address these problems? care to share how? nearly every purported improvement to this game has been anything but. almost everyone enjoyed the game more when it was closer to Valve’s Counter-Strike.

there’s no point in making promises you can’t deliver on.

1: It’s not the fault of the laggers; CS:P was just poorly designed. Counter-Strike handled lag WAY better.

2: Like you said, it’s greatly flawed, but don’t expect a fix. There’s basically one real programmer on the CS:P team and he doesn’t think this stuff is worth his time.

3: The CS:P team is aware of these. They don’t care so don’t expect a fix.

4. CS:P team knows. They don’t care.

5. CS:P wasn’t designed to protect against cheaters. Despite what Vile and f2004w say, there will always be cheaters.

tl;dr: don’t expect fixes. every reply you get from the cs:p team is an empty promise. If you’re expecting this game to be comparable to Counter-Strike you will be disappointed.


f2004w, please stop making empty promises. you’ve been trying to get rid of hackers since this game came out. half the map glitches have been there for at least 6 months and at least three members of the CS:P team are aware of it. PhobicSoft, who I assume knew more about the game than you and Vile, mentioned that many glitches could not be fixed due to poor design choices early on. you’re not addressing the issue at all for hitting through walls. it’s an easy fix. a player’s gameplay should not be changed to accommodate a glitch. the glitch should be fixed. the new feature there won’t be a need to ban people??? That’s laughable at best.

by know, i meant identify. in order to stop hackers there must be a way to identify those hackers successfully. and obviously, you should do so without false positives. good luck with that.

there’s not even anything in place right now. what makes you so certain your solution will be foolproof if it hasn’t been developed yet? and if it has been developed, even in theory, why not explain how it works?

btw, i remember discussions this from many months ago wherein devs claimed that things like speedhacking would be eliminated. we’ll see…

nice job with censorship vile…

I’m sorry you’re having difficultly clearly expressing yourself.

It is important to carefully read what is written. Being capable of locating, and punishing, those users who hack – does not stop new individuals from attempting to hack.

So, while effectively stopping hacking in basically any online game is impossible, taking appropriate action against those who choose to hack is not.

YOU wrote the statements above.

You’d be hard-pressed to find a hacker that does not choose to hack. In fact, every player who hacks this game chooses to hack this game. In the statements above you’re saying that you will take appropriate action against those who choose to hack. That means you will take appropriate action against those who hack. Unless appropriate action is inaction, you must KNOW every person who chooses to hack (i.e. you must KNOW every person who hacks). How would you come to know of every person who hacks?

You deliberately use vague words in an attempt to distort the meaning. But this leads to statements that are intentionally misleading at best. At worst, they’re downright false, like they are here. Just cut the bs and say you what you want to. You’ll make a best effort attempt to stop hacking, but will not likely be able to stop all hackers.

Transparency and honesty are appreciated by the community. Secrecy and deceit are not.

Um that feature of that checkbox for low ping been there for a while, glad you like the word feature. ;)

tbh, the design could be greatly improved. ping should have its own column and not be listed as a flag. you guys should apply oo concepts. i’ve seen these kinds of issues elsewhere as well- for example, when you press tab, the same button was used for vote kicking and muting which are fundamentally different actions. the ui is actually one of the worst i’ve seen. not the worst though.

So you know every single player who has hacked? Because that’s what you implied in that post “You said that appropriate action will be taken against those in violation.” Then, in the following paragraph you implicitly define those who you spoke about as hackers by starting off the paragraph with “Hackers will not just have…”

I highly doubt you have knowledge of every player who had hacked the game up to the point at which you made those statements.

I’m sure you aren’t knowledgeable about every way to hack this game. If you were, there wouldn’t be a need for reactive measures; you’d proactively be able to patch all the holes.

Either you are twisting words around or you misunderstood, but to clarify “ appropriate action will be taken against those in violation.” – on those that been reported. If you read his post from yesterday he did say “While it is impossible to effectively stop hacking, we intend to do our best to combat it.” I don’t see a single line stating that he knows every single player who hacked.

Then he should not have said “those in violation”, unless he meant it in a poetic sense. And Vile wasn’t using it in a poetic sense; he was making it as a promise to appease legitimate players. The act of hacking itself is a violation. It’s not the act of hacking and being caught that’s a violation. It’s not my misinterpretation, it’s your misrepresentation.

To make this clear, I’ll give an example: If I run through a red light, I would be making a traffic violation. I may not be caught and punished for it, but I would still be making a traffic violation.

Similarly, if I hack I would be making a “gaming” violation. I may not be punished for it, but I’d still be making the violation. If you guys claim “appropriate action will be taken against those in violation”, then you’re saying you’re taking appropriate action against all hackers. The only way out of this is if appropriate action means no action. That doesn’t sound like much of a solution to me…

there was also no reason to censor lawlm’s post. now, instead of taking up one character of spam it takes up about 50 chars of spam.

btw, this is what I mean by unnecessary censorship. When someone asks the dev team a question they cannot answer, their posts are censored. that’s why another forum may be useful.

censorship is fantastic… especially when I said nothing offensive in my last post and the post before just contained the word dolt in response to someone calling me a troll. :)

vile, yes, cspfinland and f2004w were spreading misinformation. but it’s also hard to take what you say seriously when you make posts like this . according to the second line, “[the dev team knows] the offenders – and appropriate action will be taken against those in violation.” those are very strong claims. yet here, you say “it’s impossible to effectively stop hacking”. Who shouldn’t I believe- vile or vile?

Yes, not ALL of the features are bad ;)

I know how hard it is to implement a checkbox. The use of the word feature was very liberal on my end… nearly every multiplayer game has this sort of thing.

It’s never impossible to hack. One may increases the security of his game and reduce the number of hackers, but you can never wipe out hacking.

Spot on. If the dev team ever claims that they’ve eliminated hacking in this game, I call bs.

Topic: CS Portable / Hackers...

A better idea would to take a proactive approach than a reactive approach. Games like Contract Wars are much less susceptible to hacking because the devs kept security in mind. Sure, people can hack the game, but it’s not nearly as easy as a game like this.

f2004w’s solution is ludicrous. If you see a hacker, then stop playing until he leaves? Is that really the best idea a dev could come up with? Rather than admit a fault with the game, you guys readily put the burden on legitimate players. Give us a break.
