impressed to see there are still people playing, also quite happy.

i have not peeked at the community server, i like the idea of bots in theory but in reality it takes away a huge part of the game - destroying someone's hard work, and the horrifying wait for the revenge attack.

uh, so before i potentially invest in another grand house building adventure, is the map-hacking still going on?

your solution to dual accounts or two people sharing information is... share information with the whole community in an effort to destroy them.

the ironing is delicious

should've left yourself an escape route!

empty vault at the end of a complex puzzle is the ultimate troll and i love it.

but empty vault in plain sight is sweet, sweet deliciousness. you should have been more suspicious!

what is cheating or trolling under you guyses definition?

'use common sense' is not helpful, because i might consider a house full of grids and magic dances trolling.

you might consider a house with a trap on the front step trolling.

you need to have clear guidelines if you are threatening banning people!

Trust me, there is NO chance of botting happening.  I'm pretty sure it's impossible to get a bot to be able to use the limited information they have to make even near the smart, tactical decisions made by humans (and human's decisions rarely actually make it to the safe).  If the bot had a whole map to play with, why would they even bother with a bot?  You risk permadeath from some error in your code, and it's trivial just to safely rob it anyways since you have the map.

i actually did make a macro to complete one of my very old magic dances because nobody had figured it out for weeks and weeks and it was really cheap and i kept pooping myself when i had to do it over and over because i had it memorised but was so scared of messing it up still.

of course, making a macro for your own house is super easy. making a bot that has to survey the map and make a decision is something else...... but it actually sounds like a really fun challenge....

so basically a magic dog dance on grids?

Walking right into the pit doesn't count though...... I have no idea why so many people think that is a valid option.

i was talking to someone on irc last night, explaining that people just suicide in pits while carrying a bunch of tools. they were refusing to believe me! ... but it happens all the time.

#17 Re: News » Version 32 Released » 2014-02-15 15:36:29

since this update the game is... laggy is the only word i can think of to describe it. stops responding for a while, and then catches up.

it has always done this on my laptop, which is 100 years old. but my pc is the opposite of that thing! how to debug D:

If they get TO THE VAULT then walk away, that's a dead giveaway for a cheater.

Not quite true - I've done that before, just because I'm scouting houses with no time to actually build something.

yeah, i've left a few alone when i was just taking 5 minutes to peek around

i would say it is more accessible to two people working together, personally. too many times when i wanted a free $2k in the past would my second client take too long to load and no money for me sad although whether that was just the server hiccuping for everyone or my multiple requests at once, i dunno.

anyway, in my opinion it is less stressful and requires a lot less speedy mouse movement to just say 'go' to someone over skype or sitting next to you or whatever kids do these days.

kicking people out of houses in which the owner dies (or giving them a minute long siren timer, police coming to inform the next of kin... very urgently) seems like a much better solution route to take than installing a bunch of preventative measures that can be circumvented / interfere with the innocent

#20 Re: Main Forum » Robbing problem :D » 2014-02-12 10:51:08

been a loooooooooooooong time since tools were dropped into the vault on a successful trip.

#21 Re: Main Forum » low level house management » 2014-02-12 10:49:00

digging a new pit is a lot of work. be thankful you are not charged for filling in the old ones!

if you are really watching the pennies you have to plan for the future.

#22 Re: Main Forum » Being able to recover most my money upon death » 2014-02-11 17:20:14

are we blurring some lines here? what is really different between a single person with two accounts, and two people in cahoots with one each?

limits per IP wont work. it is just incredibly easy to join another wifi network or fire up a proxy and have a different IP, bypassing the whole thing. also this punishes genuine players who live together, or share an IP for whatever reason.

1 year force ignore/chills on houses you rob....... wow, i don't.. i don't think that'd work. i hope i am misunderstanding this one.

Supposedly he had a long history stepping into a house once and then returning with just the right tools.

well this is just someone breaking the map encryption. the map data being sent is kind of 'built-in' and we certainly know that it was used before. and i think even jason said that the encryption wouldn't be too difficult for someone to break by editing the client.

well, either that or editing the client to have the old 'remove shroud' + 'pan around the map' features from the tape player inserted into the robbery mode. but that isn't really lining up with anything that was said in the other thread. *shrug* speculating is always fun. haven't seen them posting in a while, either.

of course, it could be easily be someone else. but a mystery is great to try and solve!

Well, I've just heard back from Jason - it turns out Mr Jaynes was a hacker and so Mr Price's downfall came before its time. I feel a bit stupid for letting myself die like that, although it has been good to have a break from the game. So, no I won't be posting Price's map anywhere and you may see it return as Price 2.0...

haha, it wasn't davinci was it? tongue
