I have a few questions about the cheaters.cfg file which appears to contain 300+ Sethhack users’ Steam IDs and bans them.
Garry might be the only one able to answer some of these.
How was this list compiled? Was it received from some random server (which could have false positives or could include people they dislike)? Or was it generated by Gmod itself and sent to Garry to include with this update?
I’m concerned the list could include people who haven’t cheated, if it was provided to Garry from a random server. Gmod itself should do the detection and send that to Garry - that way we know it is valid and doesn’t include people a particular server dislikes.
Will the list be updated over time with more IDs? Will these IDs be collected the same way as in the above question, or will it come from another source (eg other random servers)?
Is there a way to manually exclude someone from the list on a community I administrate?
One of our moderators is in the list (we already knew he had Sethhack), but he doesn’t use it on our servers (verified by our own Sethhack detection system, which has logged others but not him).
In addition, one of our administrators has Sethhack which he uses to help us develop and test our hack detection system (for Sethhack and other assorted hacks). He isn’t on the list (yet).
We do not want to lose these people, so I’d really like to be able to manually exclude specific Steam IDs on our servers.
