Cheaters still active, UAC history check can help

Have you seen a tag "TooLow4U" recently? I saw two such players, one of them is a punk with xfire account "fck17". He was in K4E before and this Saturday he tried to join «|SoH|». You should know that he is a notorious cheater (link, link, link and he has some more). Thought he changes names often, you can easily recognize him after you kill him one or two times - he starts saying "aimbot" or "go UAC" but he himself refuses to go. It is probably too hard to understand for him that even with aimbot he sucks.

To avoid such people intruding into your clan, let me remind you that you can ask me or Pimp to check UAC history of your recruits/members. All we need is her/his UAC account provided in the application topic. Sometimes also IP address can be enough. This check is not working in 100%, but at least in some 90% it can give you usefull information to avoid accepting a cheater or multiclanner.

|SKY|EthaN is a different type of cheater, playing on House of Pain and Suspects Heaven servers mostly. There is a video made a half year ago by Jax_51 proving he was cheating with no-recoil. These days it is harder to say if he is cheating or not. Sometimes he is on UAC, but when I asked him to join he ignored it. Ignorance is in general his approach to any recall to his cheating. There was a discussion on HoP shoutbox about him and he did not bother to participate in it, though he is a member of SKY clan (=HoP). Would you trust such a person?

Week 45, 46 CW results (5.- 18.11.2012)

Pimp decided to leave S4N, let me thank him this way for the help he provided. I will try making CW reports instead of him, but they will be much shorter. I will cover only VIP, RD, SG matches. BS matches will be ignored with the exception of tournaments.

This report contains clanwars from the previous two weeks due to a break last week.
<|SEAL|> vs JF||    4:3
JF|| vs {SWT}        8:0
JF|| vs {WRS}        6:2
JF|| vs DOK|»         8:4

KL VIP Tournament
No match played for over a month now. Two extra weeks provided for group matches were just a waste of time. However, quarter-final duels were drawn:
JF||         vs   IST|
«|PGÖ|» vs   |WM|
qRage    vs   <RUS1>
FoX|      vs   {KL}#1

New version of Server Browser Alternative by DExUS

Though working on UAC4 again, DExUS found some time to fix bug in his SBA tool (read more in our older article). Version 1.10 fixed issues with F1 (viewing player list) and F5 (refreshing server) often not working correctly when using filters. Those of you who use this alternative update asap.

Swatball mod (UPDATED)

Mod genius |ELITE|KENNY is known thanks to his SWAT dance video. But he also created two special mods for S4, one of them - Swat ball - is being introduced now.

As the name reveals, this has something to do with a ball. Basketball to be precise. The map this mod takes place on is a basketball ground with two huge baskets on each side and score counters for each team. Why are the baskets so huge? Simply because you are the ball. When a player comes under the basket he is thrown up and he should aim for the basket. But don't expect to earn points just for that. Before you do the jump, you must taze all players in the opponent team, only then you can run for the jump and score. The more players, the tougher it is to score. Wanna give it a try? Follow these instructions:
  1. Download from this link (70 MB)
  2. Install to your SWAT directory (so your "Swatball" folder is in the same directory as "Content folder"). Choose 1.0 version if you want to use the dedicated server from this article.
  3. Launch the mod by running SwatBall.bat in your "Swatball" folder.
  4. Click Join game and, choose Direct IP button and insert IP that can be found here (server is running only occasionally, look for the tab named "Basketball mod").
Mod is ideal for 2vs2 matches so it should not be a big problem to try it even in small number of players.

Today we had a session on this mod and those who missed it can pity that. Here is photo of our Globetrotters team with a crowd of hot fans ;)

From left to right at front: {SoE}PimpMyGun, ||T3||»Apophis, TR1GG3R.
From left to right at back: Melissa, Katniss, Pam, Stacy, Jess, Nicole, Eve, Lara
I was behind the cam to have better view of the girls ^^

And here, you can see us in action. NBA stars are pure amateurs when compared to us:
We also found that score boards do not work, maybe TR1GG3R will have a look at it. But on the other hand, there are toilets where you can have some rest. And most of all, there is a cool music in the radio - so don't you dare shooting it (like I did and server had to be restarted to fix it again).

List of clans (all game versions)

Sometimes you might need a contact for a SWAT4 clan. A list of them comes handy in such situation, so here you are - the biggest SWAT4 clan list ever made. It contains:
  • tag and name
  • link to website and if available also xfire/gametracker
  • primary game version and mode
  • flag, whether the clan is still active or not
The list is available on this link (sorry for external link, but blog here does not support BB codes).

American SWAT scene & comparison of rules

The following article was prepared by «CoB» ZyKeS >|GS|< (with a slight edit by blog staff). The part related to differences in rules applies probably only to CWs held by American clans. Here we go:

We know that swat 4 community everyday is getting smaller, it’s important to understand that not only people from Europe play this. American community is small but still active; most of the players are from South America (Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Venezuela, Chile, Ecuador) others are from Central America and from North America. SWAT 4 1.0 is almost full of players from America but there are some European clans too. Very common are “teams” formed by players from different clans. I want to tell you too that American players prefer to play in United States servers. Why? Because they are from different countries and ping is very similar only in US servers. European servers for American players have very high ping, about 180 – 250 (North American players got 140 ping or less).

We consider it important to inform about the following specifics in rules of BS mode between 1.1 and 1.0 versions:

Common rules for both versions
- No Cheats. - No Bugs on purpose. - No doubleswitch. - No glitch.

1.1 BS specific rules
- No Spawn kill and Spawn nading. Exceptions - Both teams Spawn close to each other, Player hiding in own Spawn area.
- The map has to be restarted after each round.
- All weapons allowed.
- Score matters to know who won.
- Two rounds per map, if it is a tie, play another map.

1.0 BS specific rules
- No spawn nading but Spawn kill is allowed. (Players used to play with spawn kill and nading but some months ago it changed). Still some clans ask before of the war if it going to be played with spawn nade.
- Camp is allowed.
- Not all weapons allowed. Some clans prefer to play only with fire guns, less Lethal and pepperball aren’t allowed.
- The map doesn’t have to be restarted after one round.
- Score doesn’t matter, we count rounds.
- Three rounds per map, the best of three rounds win (Just need 2 rounds to win)

Space busted by x-fire screen, |»DFX«| admin by UAC

|»DFX«| clan was already mentioned on our blog when they recruited a cheater. Now their admin Johny (xfire: kacper1234567) was caught by UAC with multihack. This clan thus proved that they are among those Polish clans, who do not give a duck about cheating. Link to the sinner's UAC profile was send also to DFX website. For two days it remained unnoticed by any admin, but now the website is not available anymore. Is that the end of this lame clan?

Series of self-busting by x-fire screens continues. This time a lack of intelligence was fatal for another ||T3||» clan player - Space (xfire: albertux777, GT: chillypepperspace, UAC: 298361), recruited to the clan only recently. I was asked by another ||T3||» member to check him as he had some suspicion. Though at first I found nothing apart from the fact, that his sister Bunny described him as "a cheater, cheating everywhere". In the end finding a bullet-proof evidence was easier than expected :)

link to screen in profile (enjoy as it might be deleted soon. EDIT: deleted 15.11. by Space)

Naturally, this punk is now clan-less.

TAKEDOWN - SWAT4 sequel?

You may have noticed already that SWAT4/Rainbow six type game is being under development. Game creators themselves are promising, that the game "will focus on realistic weapons modelling and squad-based play in a close-quarters battle setting". So though the game will not be called SWAT5, the aim of the game seems to be very alike. Game should include multiplayer modes as well - co-operative mod and competitive mod were mentioned, without further description. Community of players is involved in the process of development, so some problems we know from S4 will be hopefully avoided (especially disallowed content download and multiple versions). Some links you might be interested in following:

Promo video: kickstarter.com
Forum/blog: takedownthegame.com
Screenshots: linklink
Twitter: @takedownthegame
Facebook: SerellanLLC (development company)

Misson briefing video and map overview:

Release date? Second half of 2013. As there is no other similar game (with the potential to unite all of us S4 gamers in one game) on the horizon, we must hope that all developers' promises will be fulfilled and wait patiently until then.

«GWLU» - new clan accepting also cheaters (UPDATED)

Not only Europan continent has its clan accepting cheaters, but also America - represented by a newly formed «GWLU» - Gamers Mundial Last Union. I am not saying all their players cheat, nevertheless the concentration of unfair players does not seem to be low there.

Proofs? Well, unusually high number of player with this tag banned by SMAC for no-recoil and long-arms. We all know SMAC has a significantly high level of false-positive detections, but check the SMAC banlist yourself (in the time of writing the article it contains names: JT, GearMaster, Sony, Fresne with this tag). Another proof? See UAC matchid "gwlu01", player with UAC name andres528 was caught with standard multicheat a year ago. Another user wearing the clantag on xfire - Kahm (xfire: gmal1992) is banned on UAC (link).

You can dispute that some of these proofs are weak or indirect. That's right. So let's see an x-fire screenshot made by a player using «GWLU»AzE:

I would be interested if he is really so stupid to make this SS or he simply does not care, if he is seen as a cheater or not.

GLWU also have their own server on 1.0 in VIP mode ( Will you pay it a visit?

UPDATED: based on info received from GWLU members in the comments I slightly changed the article name (originally it was "«GWLU» - new clan of cheaters").  Reason is, that they also posted link to their Facebook group which has 125 members. It would we wrong to assume, that most of them cheat or have cheated. Nevertheless, rest of the article remains valid in my eyes. Also note, that they are not a new clan but a union of players from other Latin America clans like FLS, FBI, ALS, SAM, ASM, etc.

SWAT 4 Manager 2012 (the game)

A while ago you could have noticed a link to SWAT4 Manager 2012 in Angerbox. In case you missed that, here is an article giving you another chance to enjoy this "reality based" game.

Steps to fully enjoy the game:
  1. You need Power point 2010 on your computer. Most probably also free Power Point Viewer can be used (get it here)
  2. In case the sounds do not work, you might need OGG codecs from here.
  3. Download the game itself from here.
  4. Open the file, press F5 and enjoy! 
If you like it, don't hide it. The (anonymous) author might make a new version in 2013 ;)

Advanced game hints

Couple of hints that might improve your game and increase your chances for survival:
  • when you are dead, don't use teamchat (Y), because only dead team-mates will see what you write. Those still alive cannot see that. Use normal chat (T) instead. This is a very common mistake seen on servers.
  • turn on Subtitles in your in-game settings (option is disabled in some language versions of game, but at least in English version it is available). When you hit someone with flash or stinger, you will see his name in chat so you know if it was your team-mate or enemy.
  • when you play with helmet and you get hit by gas, use any voice command (like Roger, Where is the VIP?, etc.). That usually makes you stop coughing and thus you have higher chance of hiding.
  • changing gun from primary to secondary and vice versa is faster then reloading. Keep that in mind when you run out of ammo in the middle of shooting. 
  • if your chat does not work (you press ENTER but the message is not sent) press left Alt. After you can should be able to send your message again.

Note that as of today, you can see all hint articles published so far by clicking the "Hints" in the main menu.

UAC saved for now, new definition file for S4

UAC3 donations goal for September-November has been reached. I am proud that SWAT4 players contributed the most of the sum. Since we wrote the article on this blog, SWAT players donated over 100 € (not counting donations made by them before). Though I expected much more players donating small sums, in reality all this money was donated by only 5 people. Noteworthy could be, that the bigger/stronger the clan is, the less willing to donate its members are. Also some people claimed they would donate, but they are still taking their time.

Enough about this money thing. A new cheat definition file version 14 was released yesterday. Previous version was released over a half year ago. Let's wait if we see any new codes in cheaters' list.

Finally, though it's been mentioned widely, iShady (xfire: goldysoldier) was caught on UAC for the second time. After his première he was given a second chance. Critics of second chances must applause him now. After the second incident he left T3 clan without saying the reason but of course, very soon it was discovered. A bit funny is, that he was kicked also from Swat4 <<Vegetable Players>>.

One-key admin login (and other console commands)

This hint article will focus on console commands and their binding on specific keys. Overview of most frequent console command can be found on this website. The most useful are stat fps, stat net, shot, setres (often SWAT starts with default resolution. This command helps you set it to correct one), sad (admin login) and say/teamsay (bind chat messages, font can be formatted).

There are also other commands not listed on the website like netspeed 10000. This is useful if you have unstable connection and your connection seen via stat net goes under this value. Your game then becomes laggy, with lower fps and this does not improve by itself. Some commands can be used for cheating, I am sure you know some but luckily, not all. We will keep it like that :)

Typing console commands manually in game would not please anyone. Fortunately, you have two options how to assign your unsued keys on keyboard to these commands, and thus do the desired action by a single key strike:
  • Beginners can use a small application made by UAC3 creator called Swat4 Colored Text Generator. You can assign only F1-F13 keys with this application, but it makes the whole activity including formatting text much easier
  • Advanced users might prefer direct edit of  User.ini file located in your Content\System folder. this allows mapping of more keys then the above mentioned utility. Also, you can adjust key bindings for all in-game keys (useful could be e.g. binding team camera change to mouse scrolling  wheel, because original binding to delete/insert keys is not very practical).

Some commands can be combined by separating them with pipe character "|". Pretty popular is for example binding texts to changing weapons or using handcuffs. Such binding looks like this:
H=TEAMSAY I am arresting, cover me|EquipSlot 11
However using these often results in two much spam from your side and other will probably happily ignore you.

Note that bind keys do not work before round is started. But during round you can for example log in as admin with let's say your L key, which has binded the appropriate string, i.e. sad mypassword.
