Nearly 1000 hours logged and I met my first verifiable (by his own admission) hacker!
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Wow. I guess I've had a good run, because in the nearly 1000 hours I've logged in the time since the alpha was released, I've never encountered a hacker (or at least one I could verify!). This all changed today on the " Serveur [R22R] Quebec/Montreal"!
I was in Novo hanging out in one of the apartment buildings in the hills and eating on the top floor. I suddenly heard footsteps right beside me and my framerate literally came to a CRAWL. My audio also started to cut in and out like someone was flicking the switch on my 'phones off and on. I managed to draw my Magnum and crouched, but it was literally as though I was doing it all at 5 FPS. I suddenly hear "Hello" in a really forced fake French accent, and turn to my right. A guy in a full blue paramedic outfit, cowboy hat, and shades is standing next to me, so I turn and unload my Magnum into him. He shoots me once, and I'm dead, but I hang out a bit and hear him talking to someone else (at this point the accent is dropped and it's a nasally sounding dude crying because I apparently managed to kill him. LOL
"Oh shit! He could see me!" he says. "I'm fucking dead. I was walking around and I was going to fuck with him a bit, but then I guess he could see me. Shit!"
He starts talking about the hack he was using (which I won't name here as I don't want to advertise it) with the other guy who DOES sound like he's got an accent of some sort, and the other guy's laughing at him. The dude I killed, however, is obviously not amused his keeps wondering aloud "how the fuck did he see me?!"
It sucks I lost my "stable" guy who'd been alive for a few months now, but at least I took the bastard with me.
In closing, I hope he dies of head cancer.

Hi horrorview,

if you should somehow get to know what hacks people use to hack this game, you may mention them here in the Feedback Tracker. <i><b>BUT</b></i> make sure you make the ticket <i>private</i> then so only the devs can see it.

I thoroughly read what you wrote, but aside of an interesting story, I could not find any issue which could be helpful for the devs. Hence, I'm closing this ticket now.

If you should encounter any issues/bugs/glitches or would like to see some feature implemented, feel free to use the search function if a respective ticket already exists and if not, file a new one here. :)

Kind regards,
