Important notice regarding hacking detection

[GM]Celestine[GM]Celestine <font size =2 color=#DC1256><b>The One and Only</b></font>
Attention Mercenaries,

During our recent tests on the hacking software it came to our attention that current hacks can change the CrossFire game files in a way that even if the hack was disabled and removed, our systems might detect the change as actively hacking. This is not a false detection but a detection of previously installed and/or used hacks.

Any detected hacking of CrossFire may result in an account restriction up to permanent Z8 account closure.
Please be aware that hacking is considered a severe violation of our Terms of Use, and if you are using hacks you risk a permanent account block even with the first offense.


In case you were curious and installed a hack without using it actively, we recommend to perform a clean uninstall of the hack and CrossFire and install CrossFire new. Please see instructions for clean Rebooting the Computer and Reinstalling the Game here.
If you are using a shared computer, for example at an Internet Cafe, we recommend to do the same and install CrossFire new to ensure that the installed version of CrossFire doesn't contain the file change from a previously used hack.

In any case, please be aware that you are responsible for following our Terms of Use and should always make sure that the computer you are using to connect to the game, is not used for hacking and free of malware, viruses and similar malicious applications.

Thank you for your understanding,

-CrossFire team

  • I'm scared to log onto my account now lol.. Not the first time Xtrap messed up and bans a legit player. (After the uninstall of the whole CF) :)..
    - If this does happen will support even look into it or just close the tickets ;D!?
    - So.. if this is someones first time getting banned by this 'new' semi update it's still a perm banned no more 3,7,14 days?

    No, .tga and .wav files wont be detected. Although changing them may cause client errors.

    GMs shouldn't have warned us, so anyone who is hacking or used to hack would get what he deserves
    Nevermind...

    That's just yesterday, from the fact that 4uk was full and I tried to go there (to allocate server and clamped ENTER) surfaced message to reboot the system or the game, and when re-entering a limit on the level ground for 2 minutes (the game was re-installed the day before yesterday)

    If you've had a cheat on your PC previously you should which I guess you would've since you asked.

    This is why you should use my special forehead cheat, it doesn't even touch the game.

    Xtrap banned me for 3 days some months ago cause it detected hack..? I had only the itunes and the cf opened :@ :( -.-
  • This can only be good news. So lets hope the hackers will finally be kicked from the game.Nice work Z8/Smilegate whoever you are.A clean crossfire? Fantastic.
  • right now i'm trying to login from my old damn laptop...it's the second haking tool detected error in 10 minutes... i can't understand why this happen... :(
    My "c" button is stuck...is it possible to be the cause of this error ?
    I don't have anything else in my laptop and it's freshly formatted (2 weeks ago).
    I installed cf on this laptop 3-4 days ago...
  • ChumYChumY Viscount
    Yeah, It's cleaning time! ;)
    Exactly.
  • +1 but their is still hackers in game :(
  • Wait.. what if you're banned for no reason? Like by mistake? I remember I hit shift by accident when I golden headshot someone and my system detected a hack.. I was banned for a while, for no reason.
  • anazumaanazuma Beginner
    i got an xtrap error however it didn`t happen yesterday. it doesn`t make any sense i got no hack tools installed on my rig
  • People get xtrap errors even when they don't hack, so what if someone ends up getting a random hack tool error, due to an old pc/laptop. You gonna ban them for no reason? It's not just hacking that causes the error and I think you know this already. I don't hack, never did, never installed any hack tools or devices that would be a problem to xtrap and as many times as I was told to reinstall CF by support because of getting those annoying hack tool messages they still happen from time to time.

    You've basically just said you hack(ed) to the 100,000+ people that will see this.. This is only saying if you HAVE hacked or cheated. If you haven't cheated or used such programs re-installation is not necessary. Busted!

    Well this is not really working is it? there are still loads of hackers shooting through walls etc.I really do believe that all you mods that post this stuff about hackers being banned believe what you have been told to tell us. Unfortunately some of us have been here long enough to know that whatever anti hacking message is put out there that nothing ever works. Bring back the list of hackers that have been kicked so that we can see if what you are telling us is actually working. We might start believing again. Not gonna happen is it?
  • Good Good
  • Yes, after this complete weekend like a hacker festival...i cant believe its working! Otherwise there should be a ban quote of 50 % on this weekend. But nothing happens,. like in the past. I´m desperately disappointed that the NA version is supported that bad!
  • TecEpicTecEpic Apprentice
    Why you tell hackers how to avoide getting ban ?
    If they used the hack they shold get banned - end of story . why you give em a tip on how to do clean reboot etc...
    Yet so many hackers on the server its just unplayable !
    I really hope CF vs 2.0 will come soon !
