I've finished development of version 0.1.
It's not perma-ban based, it detects and kicks cheaters, repeated detection will result in a 2 hour ban, changing IPs won't help.

Before I release it, I want to know whether the majority is for or against.

For this vote, I suggest allowing only one selection per person, not 6. If each voter casts a different number of votes, the results can become skewed or biased towards either positive or negative. As the results stood before I wrote this reply:

Quote
yes - 2
don't care - 1
no - 1
yes - open source only    - 9
yes - closed source only - 0
that will fail    - 0

Total Voters: 9

This means either 2, 3 or 4 voters voted more than once. 2 of the 9 voters who chose "yes - open source only" also chose "yes" but either 1 or 2 voters chose the other 2 conflicting answers. Choosing conflicting answers is detrimental.  Sad

Ideally, the options could have been:
Quote
don't care
no
yes - open source only
yes - closed source only
allowing only one selection per voter. (Although I don't think "yes - closed source only" could really be an option at all.)

I vote "yes - open source only", because this is important to have a free (free as freedom) anti-cheat system.

If this is a free(dom) software, many other FPS games will benefit.

voted for yes
I didn't vote for open source only, when you know the source it's probably easier to see how to avoid the anticheat system
