Auto Aimers are becoming a big problem in Pogo Pool . Not only is it not fair to the honest players, but the players that do play well are constantly getting accused of having a some kind of game cheat. Anyone knowing of a way to detect or block these cheats would be greatly appreciated

Yes , I'm guessing that is a browser game.. To describe it better .... Pogo.com is gaming site that you can play multi-player games , in my case, I play pool. Just wondering if there is any way to see the files going through the server. I heard there is software that allows you to do this ( but not sure) I'm thinking it had something to do with my firewall. People download auto aimers (cheats) from playbuddy.com, badgehelp, ect... Which in turn is making our league a mess , due to complaints from the honest players. Any help in this matter would be greatly appreciated

Hmm, the only software I can think of which matches that description is FTP software, but you need to have acess to the domain password etc for that.

We cannot help you to hack into Electronic Art's servers, obviously.

The best thing to do is to contact EA. If they get enough complaints, perhaps they will enable an anti-cheating program of some sort.

Yes, I wasn't suggesting to hack in, in case you got the wrong idea. I was simply saying that if you could, that would be a way to do it.

I would never want to know how to hack Pogo , nor any other site for that matter . Heck, I do good to turn on a computer, much less hack someone elses ... :) As far as , contacting EA Sports about enable these cheats. They have received thousands of complaints , but yet to see any actions taking on their part. I'm thinking maybe if I understood the Java language better, I could maybe identify these cheats. While I'm playing i have my Java console open ,and can read the game commands as the game is being played (both my commands as well as opponents) At times I see files that I don't know the meaning of, so maybe I can investigate the files. Thanks again for your responses and helping a "computer-dummy" :)

To be honest, there is little you could do yourself. The only option really would be for EA tor release some sort of Anti-Cheat, which probably isn't going to happen. :) With small time web-based browser games, there isn't much point in making a fuss tbh.

I agree bud ... not making a fuss .... just trying to end alot of arguments about this issue .. I personally could care less if someone uses a cheat... I don't have a problem beating them with skill. And as for it being a "small time " browser game, there are over 60,000 people playing pool at this minute. But thanks for your reply

Hi ppl, This looks like an old worn out thread but the issue is still with us. I really don't care if ppl use CHEATS
when gaming against a program but, it's certainly not fair against another person.
No, I don't have the andidote, wish i did. However I do believe, "If ya can't beat em', join em'".
