article
This morning, people from a few different families got akilled for using an automated way to scratch. In #help, the blame was quickly put on our userscript Beyond, but on Omerta's Facebook Wall this was rectified, stating the people who got akilled merely used Beyond as a "preconceived excuse".

This makes you wonder, though, what kind of script the people used, and how the admins caught it. If it was an userscript, like Beyond itself also is, there is absolutely no way the admins could see these people had it installed, thanks to GreaseMonkey's sandbox environment and the fact that it is a client side script, not server side. This means the script is executed after Omerta has created the whole page and thus, if they want to detect such a script, they are already "too late" in the process.

Two ways of detecting scripts come to mind:
  • Sending admin warnings, with those nice little red envelopes, to detect if an user who is online is really behind his computer. This is a good, solid way to detect scripting, and a way they should use more. If they used this method, however, there is no way they could deliberately say the akills were justified for using a scratching script. They could only say the users simply scripted.

  • Logging the times an action is executed. This is the most logical way, and also a very good way to detect certain scripts. The logic behind it is simple: Every time a S&W card is bought or checked, save the time it was done into the database. If a player did 100+ cards with exactly the same time in between, it is clearly a script; there is no way a player could done so many cards in a row and time it perfectly. If the script that is used had no random numbers, but always executed his code on the exact same time interval, then this is the way the admins have detected it and can confidently say it was because of scripting.

Unfortunately, admins in #help still say that Beyond is the one to blame, but we are confident this will end soon after their rectification. It is true that Beyond had an automatic scratch script, in a far distant past, but DrunkenGamer talked with us about it and we immediately complied without hesitation and took it out of Beyond, and also took it out of the site. They asked us to do this because they were afraid Beyond caused the 50x errors with the massive load of requests from automatic scratching. Everything the admins say on their Facebook posts is true and we, as Beyond team, hope that the things happened today will not affect our good relation with the admins
statements
Omerta can confirm that nobody was using Omerta Beyond for the function we busted for. They are just saying that - a preconceived excuse for a cheapskate script.

most scripts stop if any link was changed duh.

It's quite easy to keep the old link alive and give manual players another URL in the game - so when they click on "Bullets" for example, they'll be sent to bullets3.php, while scripts will still go to bullet2.php, right?

I'm not much into coding scripts, lol, so don't know the details, but that's how I assume it should work - scripts don't read links in the game, right? Those links are coded in scripts..
Scripts may be able to get the links from the menu page.

admins are gay! as usual they just kill a few random players based on nothing cause they have no real evidence.
when you go to #help the first %dude (who thinks he has the bigges dick in the world because he is an "admin") starts yelling at you so you dont even can get a proper conversatoin going.

In the case of the older scripts, the solution is pretty clear. Just change a few bits of HTML an alter the element ID's. This will cause the script to fail. Ofcourse this will only work with the not updating scripts.
If anything, it's an easy thing to do with little consequence, yet making the life of the scripter harder.
I proposed that to them in 2.4 or so... They changed it once if i am not mistaken.
Instead of bullets.php it was changed to bullets2.php. And they busted many scripts back then.

But these were the old days, where they actually gave a fuck about catching scripts.
Now all they care about is to gain more and more money. And all of the devs are working on lackeys and so on. No one is doing anything to catch scripts.

Now they akill based on a hunch.
And they dont really care about scripters anymore.
They think their Lackeys are the most important thing to work on.

Next to come is Bullet lackeys.
Followed by scratch and win lackeys.

what comes after that??

Haters can't see me.

To avoid scripting, admins made all kind of lackeys.
Starting with Cars and crimes, then Booze and Narcs.

Now they want to add Bullet lackeys.

What's next?
Scratch and win lackey?
:')

In the article it says, DG asked you to remove it because they thought it was the reason behind the 50x errors. If that was the reason, why is it illegal then? Since it made the game buggy. They didnt ask you guys to remove it because they saw it as cheating right?

Anyway everyone using something they arent sure of its legal or not. Always risk getting akilled. But this random akilling is kind of bullshit.

The admin are dummassess... I was akilled and don´t use beyond or any script. I only play during the week and the still say that i´m a scratch script.

So there some accounts that we can do and we not need to be so bright to get there. With they script (lackeys) i can do crimes, buy drugs and booze and scratch at the same time. And if i play 8 hour a day i can do between 2.400 and 4.800 scratchs a day. So admi do the mats....

It's like http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/101654
They say it's ilegal, but how would they detect it? It doesn't play for you...

Installed 74 times.

74 more akills comming up, also illegal to have this addon.
Is it also ilegal to have firefox instead of IE? Or linux instead of windows? They can't ban you for something that doesn't interfer with the game.

Posting anonimously rules fuck face :D

And sensje, yes i do! i don't even use lackeys, i just come here to flame and piss ppl off. :D
Omerta is kinda faggy nowadays, go and play LoL! :w


didnt you notice you dont piss noone off ? you just make a clown out of yourself... if thats your intention it works, theres clowns that are clowns the way they play the game and talk like yama and friends, and there are clowns like you that cant even be considered players... just some clown who likes to talk crap and you think you bother people, like anyone cares about you.. if anyone asks who mata-ratos is , the answer is either the conflict fanboy or the conflict hater, you happy with that definition? congratz fool :D

Yeah, i'm not a player. And i couldn't care less what others think, i do get my kicks by pissing on your heads, if it bothers you or not i couldn't care less. I bother the right people when i feel like it.
And would you show your nick please? It's really a bummer talking to fags with no face :\
