    Hi all,

    Sorry to start another cheat thread, but I saw something last night that I didn't know was possible. I was playing CTF online and a member of the opposing team had our flag. I happened to run across him and, naturally, tried to kill him to return the flag to our base. While I was trying to shoot at him, this guy was using his xloc to teleport and WAS HOLDING ON TO THE FLAG!! He probably xloc'ed about 5 or 6 times right in front of me and he never dropped the flag, not once. It WAS NOT a situation where he was dropping it and picking it back up.

    Now, I had no idea that this was possible. BTW, i don't remember if the server was CSHP...sorry :mad:

    Please explain

    He didn't really have the flag, or it was CTFM (a 4-team CTF mod) with the "enable flag translocations" option on. Jusging from that pot I would say it was number 1.

    What likely happened was he had the flag and got killed, or dropped it somehow, but your machine did not get that information (packet loss) and so your computer thought he still had a flag on him.

    Bug

    Theres a bug that sometimes happens where it looks like someone has the flag but really does not. Its a pretty annoying one.:redeemer:

    To see whether the opponent has a real flag or not: Check for surrounding aura. The flag carriers with real flag WILL have a surrounding aura with the color of the flag.

    If no aura is seen around the character in question, then the person is not carrying the flag even if you see it.

    you might not even need dynamic lighting off, with my video card (Riva TNT 2 Ultra) and D3d running, there are no light auras on anything in the game, on my brothers comp, the muzzle flare shows up on the ground underneath when he shoots his gun, mine doesnt do this either.

    Cheats, cheats, cheats! "Hey he is shooting at me. That cheating bastard!". I'm so tired of this. Why can't you just say "I saw something weird, what was it?" without jumping to conclusions?

    As Neme said it was the flag bug. If two people have the flag (one real and one bugged flag) you see two flag icons on the scoreboard.
    And as said bugged flags don't glow

    Hey 8-4-7-2 don't be to hard on BradL! :rolleyes:

    The topic is: "Is this a cheat?". He's not accusing anyone, just asking. Nothing wrong with that! He asks just for an explanation.

    I never said he accused anyone in particular, nor did I flame him. All I got is a little bit angry.
    I see no problem with that
