    I don't think so. It's a pretty stupid rule if it is one.

    Technically, hacking a game is against the games EULA and some laws. Practically, as long as you hack a single player game, no one cares. Have fun. Hacking a multi player game and cheating other players, while the same official offense, is frowned upon by the gaming community ( and me personally ).

    However, if you don't start your post with "I'm going to build a CS bot", no one cares what you ask if there is an alternative reasonable explanation.

    She was so Blonde, she spent 20 minutes looking at the orange juice can because it said "Concentrate."

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    Yes, it falls under the boards anti-cracking rule.

    I read all of cgod's locked threads, pretty amazing lol. It looked like he was trying to create a trainer that includes a keylogger LOL, trying to pretend it was it was security protector inside of a folder called wallhack or something like that.

    But as far as bots go, what if I created a topic called: "I'm going to build a bot for Sim Ant", now that would be ok right?

    You're right Thantos, that is allowed, but working on external ones, cracking the game, or making trainers is not.

    I doubt that you know enough to make a bot for anything. It's harder than you think. And as for trainers they are extremely difficult to make without having privileged information about the game - which is why I'm totally against them.

    If you cheat you suck.
    If you program something so others can cheat, you really suck.

    Oh come on, some people just want to mess around and have fun in their own way. That's what games are for, right? Anyway, no lawyer would try to sue someone for making a game trainer, EULAs are very hard to hold up in court, and reverse engineering isn't illegal.

    My rule of thumb: multi-player = cheating is bad m'kay

    I feel the same way, unless there is a way to get single player data online (I.E: Open Bnet for Diablo II).

    I vote everybody gives negative rep to Thantos, Govt, and Prelude :P

    They've gotta be cheating the system somehow :P


    PS.

    I was just kidding. Don't actually do that :P

    IRC, they kept giving eachother +rep, and when you have a lot of rep when you give rep it gives more, or something, IDK... I wish they all would give me +rep though :-D
    Hmm
