So...was doing some reading after I saw the post about by RAZR in the community ban-list...

And this is only worth the effort if people think OA is big enough...

but there's a project out there called ETACE, ET AntiCheatEffort...sounds punkbusteresque, but open-source.   
I have no idea how it could be made to fit with the GPL, since it definitely has "closed-source" pieces to it, but...it might be something to think about if OA grows big enough.

Im not a fan of pbish programs often they restrict more cvars i use, to impove pc performance
Often  people call others cheaters when theyre not.
So imo its good enough to make a demo of a suspected cheater then show it to people who actually know what a cheat looks like and if a cheat is confirmed, Ban simple and effective i think

Anticheat often doesnt deliver because cheats develope aswell.

what happened to getting a 200x computer? A sufficient GHz with a capable video card isn't very hard to NOT do these days.

asking when OA3 will be done won't get OA3 done.
Progress of OA3 currently occurs behind closed doors alone

I do not provide technical support either.

We plan to offer features most major anticheats offer, e.g. a screenshot facility, a reliable guid system and player database for identification, auto-update system and much more.
no cheat detection as far as I can tell. it is just a whitelist/blacklist kinda thing

So the rule is just against proprietary products? Other than possible usage issues there is no objection to open source hex editing detection/whatever those punks are using these days?
