The reason for 5 of the cheats you see in...
« on: March 21, 2004, 02:33:02 PM »
Anyway, I emailed Dan yesterday about a few things... I asked him about the 5 "cheats" that you could turn on in the memory.

Note that I did have the real memory addresses in the email, but I'm not giving them to you here. :P

Wow, very industrius...  Yes, these are debug settings, so we could see
routing, and test late game problems, and just build.  We had lots of issues
when maps were completely full, (basically out of game memory).    Of
course, in multiplayer playing with these dubug settings will the wreck the
game, and cause them to get out of synch.

I was right on my assumption that they were for debug purposes...

And yes, this was almost entirely useless. o_O

I think it's mainly to do with Xfir wanting to keep the Cheats, or how to cheat on Outpost Games a Secret from the Public.
It wasn't me. Arklon did the censoring himself.

Like we keep saying, we are trying to keep the game fair.

I know 3 of the 5 cheats, and it was a shame everytime someone used them. The 3 I know always sent out a message to everyone in the game saying ruff ruff

Oops, yes I meant Woof, I never used them, just had them shown to me. God it's been a long time since I've played OP2 multiplayer. As soon as I get the internet hooked up at home I will. Within 3 weeks hopefully.

gl to you.  The last game I played Lev, he was getting distracted so I typed:
Woof! Woof! Woof!

He thought I cheated, then looked at the message again.

Lol, it was Drako that showed me the cheats, just so that I'd know what to look for if someone else cheated.

Yeah Drako always killed me when we played. I could beat most people on Op2 when I was seriously into it, but I could never beat him. I came close so many times, and then he'd find a way to beat me, without cheating.

If you went 1 on 2 against me and self, you'd lose.  1 on 1 against me, I'd most likely lose unless it was a land rush on fractures.  For some reason I haven't been beaten with those settings.

I once went 1 on 3 against some newbies and kicked their butt. It was great, but then again I never saw them playing online again. So maybe I shouldn't have beaten them so badly. Killed off one of them by mark 100 and was already attacking another. Ahh the memories. Now when I get on within the next couple of weeks, I'll be getting my ass handed to me at first, been too long and I've lost any touch that I had.

see, I'm not very good alone, but when I'm on a team, I can get more done, as I have someone who can watch my back as I get more ore.

I used to be that person watching the back of the other person. But I agree, I like team's. Also since if I was playing with someone I didn't know, I would let him get attacked (I was the bigger one, so they always went after my partner) and then I'd go in a kill at least one of them while my partner was getting killed. It was evil of me, but it got the game won. Man, not too much longer till I can get back on and play again.

I onced was playing on WON with someone with the same rl name as me.  We were playing, at least I think, lev and falcon on handprint.  When we were being overwellmend, he broke the alliance and attacked me, so I sent a nova to his units and went all out on him when we got back into the WON chat.

you guys know that it isnt  hard to hide cheating, you just tell the game not to send mesages to anyone and type it in
how to insult a klingon:

qatlh Quch Hab ghaj no'ra'
vaj HabHa''a' je 'uSDu'lIj joj

wich translates roughly to:

how come you guys never had those for head bumps in the first staktrek series and do you guys have bumps like that on your genitals too?

I thought that it still sent the message. If it doesn't then you just have to trust that the other person isn't cheating. There are very few people that I would trust like that.

Hey Hacker, is there a way that you could disable cheats, and then make it a download that everyone would have to download and install to play?

No bad idea. But I believe, op2hacker has things to do which are more important.

Of course cheating is BAD, but it seems to be no problem in this community. Most people, I have played against, didn't cheat.

How do you know that they haven't cheated though?

If they did, they didn't cheat well, bcz I won many games. And most ppl (like Lev) who defeated me are trustworthy.

Hmmm....well I just hope that I don't encounter that. If Hacker can't do it, can't someone else? All you'd have to do is create something that deletes the line for the cheats from the code and then increase the version number so that if someone had a different version number it would mean that they still had the capability to cheat and they'd have to eliminate that capability in order to play.
