Cheating in Wesnoth

Post by SalsaRocoto »

EDIT: please ignore this post and subsequent replies, we were mistaken.


Hey all,

with version 1.8 out and the RNG on the server I thought we were done with cheaters. How surprised was I to play this 2v2 where one player recruits grunts while having no gold. It was really strange given that he had lost most of his villages and we checked on replay. Look at turn 10 and 12. Even before I think. There was no oos. I have no idea how he does that, but that definitively requires some investigation.

Cheers

actually Rocier, check well but I think we are probably mistaken. The way the replay presents things is not really intuitive, but: when a player's turn arrives, it shows the amount of gold BEFORE adding income. So maybe there is no cheating after all.

I don't have the expertise to deal with this issue, but I do know that the multiplayer moderators don't look too fondly on cheats. Hopefully they can take a look at the evidence you've provided and determine whether or not outright cheating occurred.

I think the issue is solved and can be locked if I understand OP correctly.
