Our [APG] servers are not 100% cheat proof, because of the ways that hackers can bypass anti-cheats that make VAC and PB useless. But even if we use like "pureless" server settings that could block friendly custom content that are used to enhance their gameplay convenience, makes our server open to be targeted by hackers that can take advantage in pureless servers.

VAC is not guaranteed to detect WallHacking very often, as they does not detect "content hacks".

However we don't use VAC and PB alone as they are defenceless when they fail those WallHacks Detections. Because our servers also uses some 3rd Party Anti-Cheat tools: such as HLGuard, AGuard, zBlock, DBlocker, SourceMod Anti-Cheat and some plugins that could block AimBot and WallHacking. Most cheats like AimBot, SpinHack and Recoil-Control are easy to spot as admins can spectate and can easily notice them, but those WallHacks are hard to spot and requires more anti-cheat skill.

But unfortunately the internet is tackling harder on challenging Malwares, Viruses as well as PC Criminals that can exploit not just our [APG] servers, but other GameServers too. They are some illegal hacking apps that are used for players who can exploit and can corrupt our gameplay in our servers.

TF2 is a Free 2 Play game that can benefit for poor players to enjoy the game, but the problem is that hackers can take advantage of those F2P games that they don't have their money at stake, except their Steam Accounts.

CS servers appear to be the worst by being targeted by hacker players, because of the popularity that some admins cannot have the time to review or monitor those hacks. And the worst part is because CS 1.6 hasn't been updated for a long time, that there are possible undiscovered vulnerabilities and also some nerfed gameplay that occured after CS 1.5 was "upgraded" to CS 1.6 for Steam near 2003/4.

So "How can I detect and report a player cheating?" you may ask. Well first of all for Source-Based servers like CSGO and TF2, what you need to do is to go into Spectate Mode, bring in the Steam Console by pressing the [~] key (depending if your keyboard in a English Format). Then type "record <DEMONAME>" and Spectate the suspect player but ONLY in 1st Person Mode PLEASE! Once you are finished or if the suspect has left the server. Bring in the Console again and type "stop" to stop the recording. Taking some Screenshots to the key hacks in action are optional too. And after that just attach the .dem files in this Sub-Board or E-mail it me, and we will monitor the demo and see if this suspect will be suspended from being caught cheating.

You may also review your .dem files in-game for CS:S, DoD:S, TF2 as well as CSGO - by typing "playdemo <DEMOFILE>" in console or by using the Demo GUI player by typing "demoui" or "demoui2". Now this step is VERY important if you want to spot any suspected WallHacking actions, you will need to use "sv_cheats 1" and type "r_drawothermodels 2" to make the models more visible and emerge from the walls, at a certain distance. I DON'T RECOMMEND THIS WHEN PLAYING ON A LIVE SERVER - OTHERWISE IT IS LIKELY YOU MAY GET VAC BANNED. Besides you cannot be too careful can you?

Also for reviewing CS 1.6 demos as well as other HL1 gamemods, you can use the "playdemo <DEMOFILE>" like for Source-Based games, but in order to load the Demo GUI Player you will need to type "viewdemo" not "demoui". The "r_drawothermodels" cvar for detecting WallHacking however, isn't supported nor available for HL1 games, so you will need your thinking caps on for those demos, sorry. Also as you may noticed unlike the Source demoui compared to the HL1 viewdemo, you cannot seem to find a caption to adjust your player speed. To adjust to half-speed, simply type "dem_speed 0.5" to help you see the cheat detection slowly and steady to help you analyse the demos.

After we caught the suspect red-handed, you will be given our greatest appreciation and loyalty that you will deserve a medal! And remember to stay cautious and vigilant to spot those cheats from occurring in the future, as using those important steps to obtain enough concrete evidence to convict the hacker.
