Hi,

It's a good idea. But I'd be happy to just have:

"user {0} has used print screen"

adding to the net messages (and, obviously, for the server to support it) so we know who is cheating.

Ta,
Norris

Norris' idea is better and easier. In fact, it is so simple that I'm surprised it's not already used.

S~!


I like Norris's idea as well however it will not be more than a token jesture as others can do the same thing with third party programs.

The *warp* due to the in-game print screen is a myth, it was limited to 1 per x amount of time many versions back.

Even if Oleg remvoed it completly, there are 3rd party print screen utils that would/could cause the same pauses anyways.

The only option or defence you have is if the server has tight limits on the pings.

Wow.

Wouldn't it just make more sense to fix it so that screenshots don't cause stutters for other players?

Turn on texture compression and you might find that screenshots aren't the problem.

Or go through all the trouble of various print screen pseudo-fixes for the server.....and someone uses fraps instead and bypassess the whole she-bang.

BTW, online printscreens are limited to 1 every 10 seconds already in game.
