General / Using Steambans
« on: February 27, 2007, 05:05:09 PM »
First, rip from the website:
Quote is a brand new service based on an old concept. Global ban lists have been active for years on the old WONID program from VALVe. When the change came to STEAMID it fell natural for us to develop a service specially minded to this new system. But we also wanted more.
The sometimes brainless acceptance of people's accusations and blind trust in anti-cheat detection tools seemed way too common in the "business". We wanted to create a service for admins that were interested in getting better at spotting and catching cheaters themselves. Fighting cheat developers and cheaters on their own terms (programming) were for us to hard a battle to go up head to head against (there are perfectly good tools available for that). We wanted to focus on the cheater personally more then on the cheats he used. Our experience tells us that a cheater will eventually make mistakes and reveal his cheats, and we want admins ready to catch him when he does. This way we can base our catches on humans (server admins) and gain experience via them to develop better and more precise techniques for spotting cheats.

The quick description: SteamBans is a large ban list of confirmed cheaters.  For someone to be added to this list, a demo of them is taken, and is verified by at least 3 trained admins.  Once they have been confirmed to be cheating, they are banned from around 5k servers.

How you can submit demos:
Assuming you are playing on LM, or any other SteamBans protected server, it's fairly simple to produce a demo:
1) Spectate the player.
2) Begin recording demo.
3) In console, type "sb_status".  A modified status report will appear, and be written into the demo.
4) Do not use the scoreboard during the demo.  If the player dies, wait until they respawn, then switch to them (for "normal" servers you would just spectate a random player).
5) End the demo normally.  The recommendation is for each demo to be about 5 minutes long.  If you don't feel this is long enough to show it, start a new demo after 5 minutes, make sure to type "sb_status" into console in the new demo.

At this point you have two choices:
1) Email me the demo
2) Register on and join the Lunixmonster team.  Once I approve you joining the team, you will be able to submit demos that way.

Often, submissions will be closed.  This is due to the number of demos submitted.. they typically re-open once every week or two.  If you don't feel like waiting around until they open again, you can email me the demo, and I will submit it for you.

Due to IPB not supporting Mysql5, and no timely plans to support Mysql5.. I've been forced to change forum software.  The new forum software is called "Simple Machines", and seems to have converted everything from IPB.

Please note, anything posted here will likely be lost, as I have to re-convert the forums

Known Issues:
PM's don't seem to have been converted.
Old polls are screwed up.

General / Suggestions for servers?
« on: October 14, 2006, 07:51:57 PM »
I'd prefer to keep this HL1/HL2, because thats what I know everyone has..

Any suggestions for servers we should run?  The SF server sits unused most of the time, because there really aren't enough players to go around.

I'm willing to give basically any mod a try.

If it's anything like what I'm doing, enjoying the wonders of college LAN's and filesharing software. :)

You guys are forgetting that if NS:S was "free" you'd have to buy HL2, to download NS:S and play it. Now that NS:S cost $20 when it comes out, you don't need HL2(HL2 costs a lot more).

That depends.. is Flayra licensing the source engine?  If he isn't, afaik you will still have to have HL2DM to play it.

I prefer debian, but that's just me..  I'll be moving over to linux when I get a new HD (It's too annoying to repartition NTFS stuff, and I think I'll still need windows)

Anyway, XMMS is your best bet for music.  GAIM is pretty good for IM stuff.. although I haven't actually used it in awhile.  I can't really help with photo editing.. I suck horribly at it, so I stopped trying.

I got the one that I linked to in the first post.

Nice and solid.. Can't tell you how accurate it is, because I only have 0.12 bb's, and the manufacturer reccomends 0.20.. Sadly, no store near me sells 0.20, so I have to order them online.

I'd remove that DDR2 too, DDR2 is made of suck!

What? DDR2 is next gen DDR...

Cas latencys too high, heat too high, next gen is XDR yo!

Compared to DDR.. yes, DDR2 is still relatively new, you should be comparing its timings to first or second gen DDR memory.

Give it time, as manufactueres produce better memory chips, the timings will go down.
