UAC xmas presents

Summary of latest UAC cheaters:
Regarding the quiz question on the right side, unfortunately the only correct answer is the last one. All of those clans have players who were caught by UAC. And honestly, some votes seem like pure trolling.

Mods and maps for SWAT4 (TSS)

Several SWAT4 mods have been released over the past years changing many aspects of the game, mainly realism, improving AI, gun sounds, adding whole new maps, guns and equipment, etc. Though they can be usually used also in competitive MP modes, it is more likely to enjoy them in CO-OP mode or single player. Let's have a short look at some of them. Each mod contains also a working link, where you can download it. Note that most of mods (unlike maps) require TSS expansion pack.

SAS mod - one of the newest mods, published in 2012. Unlike other mods, there is at least one dedicated server running in CO-OP mode (check the SAS 1.0 tab in Mark's server list here). I've even seen people playing there.

SSF mod 3.2 - The Sheriff's Special Forces, a complex mod with a 200 MB installation file.

HSME mod 2.0 - mod prepared by once best download site for SWAT4 and SWAT3 Occasionally, there is a server running in this mod too - check the Mark's server list linked above to see if you have luck to catch it online. I found also a version labeled 3.0 of this mod, strangely enough you cannot get it on HSM site but here.

Canadian Forces Direct Action - rather than a mod this is a complete remake of SWAT4, originally prepared for Canadian army's recruiting (and maybe also tac-training purposes). I found 3 versions of this mod: 1.0, 3.0 and 4.1. Unluckily, while installing I get a message that TSS is not on my computer (while it is). Mod shall contain large outdoor maps and scoped weaponry.

As a bonus, here are the best sites for SWAT4 (TSS) content - feel free to check them on your own:
  • - classic download site for SWAT3 and SWAT4. Many file links are broken, but still you can find enough interesting content after registration
  • - DSK clan website with huge archive of maps, mods, skins, tools
  • - popular MOD site for many games, including SWAT4 and TSS datadisc
  • - tens of multi-player maps (BS, RD, VIP, maybe S&G too)
  • - German web with many SP and MP maps and other S3 and S4 content
  • Desrat downloader - the application we already wrote about.
Happy exploring!

SWAT 4 Simulator

The author of SWAT 4 Manager 2012 has gone one step further with a new Powerpoint-based game entitled "SWAT 4 Simulator". Instead of being based on individual reality where you chose a clan, this game is all about building your own war team, and playing wars via simulation. Just like before, you will ideally require the 2010 PP software version to fully enjoy it. Download (its 10x bigger than last one), unzip, open her up, press f5 and enjoy!

>>Download from Here<<

P.S. Remember to share the team you built in the comments section!

|»DFX«| moves to 1.0, cheaters still inside

New Polish 1.0 clan emerged on the scene. New meaning having new name and old cheaters inside. Let's have a closer look. They are named {EsH} Elite Squad Hooligans. Cheaters in it come from |»DFX«| clan, which was its predecessor on 1.1. Now, looking for a new home they landed on 1.0 soil. {EsH}Czapa is no one else than |»DFX«|Johnny introduced on our blog recently. While playing on their BS server for a couple of rounds, I noticed {EsH}Angel having no-recoil. And now comes the funny part - I got banned because these two (plus some |URT|Malina) accused me of cheating. Their admin Wujek (also ex-DFX), joined server and banned me instantly. Apparently, he has high trust in cheaters though they killed his previous clan. For all fair players in this clan this should be a message on what team-mates they have.

UPDATE: another ESH player jasiek was caught by UAC during match against HAVOC team - link.

Mini RD tournament on new maps (UPDATED)

I've been thinking about organizing a little Rapid Deployment tournament. Its basic idea would be similar to a BS tournament organized by nRx clan early this year:

  • only one NEW map would be played
  • small number of teams, 3-6.
  • 4vs4+ (if both teams agree, also 3vs3 would be accepted)
  • short length of tournament, 1-2 weeks but max. 1 month.
UPDATE: as there are already at least 3 teams participating (JF, MG and FoX+mix) I created a forum on a well-known tournament site. It is still under construction but u can start checking it out. Registrations will be opened till Sunday or till 6 teams sign. More info at Also please vote for the map to be played here.

MarkieBoy's in-game server fix without ACM

Today, MarkieBoy released a tutorial on how to add his in-game server list without the need to install also ACM mod. It is pretty easy - just copying one file and editing another. If you wish to use this server browser but you are not a fan of ACM mod (which contains also some features seen by hard-core SWAT players as cheats) check and follow this thread:

UPDATE: new ACM version 4 was released today which fixes some bugs in Mark's server browser. If you want to use it without ACM, get the latest file MMServerList.u here and follow the tutorial linked above. For version with ACM, go here.

 Bugs fixed:
  • sorting by ping is fixed
  • player nicknames should be working now
  • joining password protected servers joining through direct IP is fixed too

Another double-clanner

USA SWAT Team super admin Fever is also one of the leaders of Third Echelon T3 clan, under the nickname Whelen. While changing his status to "AFK" in US, the 300-ping Indonesian actively runs T3, posting regularly on their forums and occasionally appearing on server. 

Although an acting leader of US claims he knows this information, he also had said 8 months ago that "in US we don't allow people to be in more then one Swat-clan". So either there is no consistency or the identity of the double-clanner was never really known until now. SWAT 4 is dieing and topics such as double-clanning may not seem as important now, but for people's interest this is shared.

Maanas caught by UAC, K4E exleader busted again

Remember the article showing Maanas with no-recoil? This guy, boasting with cheating while using names of other players (including mine), got caught also by UAC yesterday upon joining "suspectsheaven" matchid. He used the same account "new2swat" that he had registered for the IST team in the KL VIP tournament. Funny is that right after being caught he checked this blog if there is any info on this already. Well Maanas, sorry I let you wait for your next 15 minutes of shame.

Ex-leader of  |K4E|Kill4Enemy clan Paradox joined clan with similar tag - |K44| and changed his nickname to NeXuS. Shortly he was also in JP clan lead by another multicheater reported on this blog recently. It seems that every December Paradox is struck by inevitable urge to cheat. His previous catch was almost exactly a year ago with name dragio30009, last week he successfully added his current account Paradoxxx111 to the cheaters list.

UAC3 anticheat usage tips - Part 2/2

Let's continue in UAC usage tips started here. Today it will focus on match review on UAC website. i am assuming that you found your match already and see something like this:
Remember, every icon has a tooltip describing its meaning, so only the most important are explained here. The screen above consists of 2 main sections:


A. List of players (upper section):

  • Player tag (if he set it in his profile) name with status icon and country flag
  • Date and time of first and last player activity on the given match ID
  • Number of scans
  • Cheat status of player's screens in the given match ID. For cheaters (on any match id), also a cheater icon is displayed.
  • Tools icons:
    • Player icon linking to his profile

    • Screenshot icon. Interesting only when blue square is displayed, which means that player made no screens at all on the given match
    • Session icons, possible icons are:
      • Player had only one session in this match (no UAC restart, all was OK)
      • Player had more sessions in this match (all of them were finished correctly)
      • At least one session of this player on the given match ID was interrupted unexpectedly (UAC process crashed or was kill by the player).

    Sessions detail
    None of these session icons is necessarily suspicious, but the latter two require further investigation. To do so, click on the icon to see session log of the player. You will see a list of something like this:
    Here you can see details of each session of the selected player in the current match - when it started and stopped, it it was stopped normally (blue icon) or killed (pink icon). Focus on time gaps between separate sessions. On a matchid used for public server game-play it is perfectly okay to have high gaps, meaning the player uses the same match id repeatedly when he plays on a certain server. But in a match created for a clan war this might mean that player was not using UAC all the time. Gap lasting couple of minutes is okay (game or UAC crashed), but lasting for a significant part of the match is probably not.


    B. List of scans (lower section):

    After the match make sure the player uploaded his screens. UAC detects cheats also without this upload, but the player can use one PC to run game and another to run UAC. Unless he uploads screens and you check they are taken from the expected game server such UAC check can be useless. You do this in this section where you can see list of all screens made by players in the match:
    • Player name with status icon and flag
    • Screen date and time
    • Scan result icon (clean/cheat)
    • Colour flag icon (indicates how many times a screen was flagged by users. Other colour than green is then inspected by UAC admins)
    • Tools:
      • link to open the screen in UAC application, providing it was uploaded
      • icon indicating that the screen was not uploaded properly (or if the match is older than cca 3 weeks that it was already deleted to save database space - in this case you cannot blame the player)
    So that's it. To sum it up focus on the following:
    • number of screens made by a player
    • his session log to see when he was/wasn't using UAC
    • if he uploaded screens or not

    UAC3 anticheat usage tips - Part 1/2

    This article is the first part of a double article focusing on UAC3 anticheat usage. Note that its aim is not to replace UAC manual that can be found here. Rather it wants to give you some tips to avoid common mistakes I witness when other players try checking someone on UAC. Some boring theory to begin with:

    Difference between UAC name, UAC ID, match ID
    • UAC name is a name chosen by a player during registration. In UAC3 it cannot be changed, in UAC4 it is promised to be modifiable. For example "Noob99".
    • UAC ID is a number assigned to your account by UAC player database during creation. One UAC name = one UAC ID. Example - "290105".
    • match ID is the string chosen by players before a match (e.g. "prosvsnoobs"). Technically, match ID is a number assigned to the chosen matchname by UAC match database. But because this match ID is not commonly used (only in match URL), when referring to match ID usually match name is in mind.
    UAC name, UAC ID and also match name can be searched for using search form on UAC website.

    Now let's say you ask a player to join matchid "test". He says he joined it, how can you check it?

    Easiest way is by visiting UAC website. You can use the search form to find the agreed match name. But often people make mistakes when typing match names. In that case it's useful to click Matches and check the recent SWAT4 matches if there is not some similar match name (or check all recent matches if there is not the player you are interested in - it won't be more than 5 matches to check). Another way is turning on UAC app, writing the same matchid and clicking "refresh" (you don't need to join the match to see connected players). There should be written "Active" next to the player name you are interested in.

    Did you find your match name and the player on it? Next steps will be a bit more interesting focusing on checks after the match. Read it here.
