On cheating

In the Modacity.net thread, I said I would attempt to stop people from using GuiltySpark to cheat. Because the AI system both accepts keyboard input from the user and controls aiming, it’s incredibly simple to create an aimbot. I suggested not allowing key press detection and aimbot control in the same AI script, but I realize this won’t stop anything…

  • Aimbots already exist, and they don’t have introduced error either
  • People could just use their flashlight, jumping, crouching, or even a shake of the mouse to trigger the aimbot
  • Blocking input might accidentally get in the way of a useful AI script
  • GuiltySpark will be open source anyway; restrictions can be removed

That’s one thing off my to-do list.
