We don't need the eventlog to record the location everytime a player changes his seat to another gunner position. We don't need eventlog to record the position everytime a player turns on smoke or landing lights.
The events themselves are what are important.
Where a guy gets shot down or stuff like that, the location is maybe important to some 3rd party campaigns.
But 3rd party programmers don't need the other information.

Also, why do you let known cheating squadron playtest for you? Maybe patches wouldn't be leaked and stuff not stolen on web if you kicked them out?

Actually 3rd party programs need some of the info... like smokes, landing lights, damaged etc info
Also very welcome would b log marking of nav lights and screenshot taken.

Dunno how it would affect game player kill detection if log marking of changing pilot position is removed... but calling for removal of if it's possible without serious troubles.

oleg had said he will investigate this, but it might also result in some 3rd party programs not to function. he's aware of this problem and is on it already. i've noticed something else: and that is, there's no leaked patches this time compared to how everything was leaked practically 1 month if not more in advanced. hmmm, maybe oleg finally tracked down the leakers and banned them from the beta team.

I hate cheaters...being a cheater in FB/PF is really a higher level of idiotism than being a cheater in any other game
