I just wanted to let everybody know that I have created a new .chk file for mapmakers to use with lawmaker in their maps, which will stop NWX hacking in Outlaws. I have made a new map called Drool, which should be available from OutlawDad's and Paleface's as early as today. When using this map, it will compare all players files with the host's files. If there are any different, it will give an Incompatible Level Data error and wont connect to the game. Unfortunately this new .chk file sees the Lightguns as an NWX difference and will not allow players into the game if they are using this and the host is not. Conversely if the host is using Lightguns then all players must use Lightguns to play in that game. I am hoping that OutlawDad will host this file at his Outlaws site so that other mapmakers can use this in their new maps. Sadly this will not stop the Crowzhell users, but they are normally pretty obvious it seems. When I encounter a player using this hack in my games, I boot them. Then they have to take their hacks out, reconnect to your game and then reactivate their hacks. Hopefully this will be too much trouble and they will make theirselves known and maybe they will quit using these hacks. So if you would like to play an even game where players are equal, please give this map a try. Thank you!
Thanks for the compliments DonMax! I certainly appreciate those kind words! I wish all Outlaws felt the same as you and not jealous because they couldn't make this simple fix work! I hope this will help bring some normality to Outlaws games again. It is a shame that we have to do things like this to keep a few buttholes in line, but they shouldn't be allowed to ruin our game.
