state editor

Post by Wildburg » 5 Jan 2004, 16:27

Hey there...
I have a question for you guys, but first I will tell you about the background for this question.
Here in the holidays I had 5 guys coming over for a elma-lan. We played elma for 10 hours, only internals. The winner of our competion was a guy called "4aces". he had a tt around 53. Not very good I know, but we suck. The problem is that he didn't have replays for all of his records, so I think he might have used a state.dat editor or something.
So my question is:
Is it possible to detect the use of state.dat editors??
Please mail me back. My friends and I are so mad on this guy, because we think he cheated (I know it's just a computer-game... But it's the best ever).

If you have the stats.txt you can post it here, and we can see if it's times that would fit a 53 mins tt kuski. (Hope u know what I mean).

But if he uses that not so good one, ez'er detectable. But still if he uses good one, he might have edited 1:20 in lap pro, and that's not possible. 8)

I can't watch him all the time... and you can't tell a cheater from his stats.text, because not everyone plays the same level with the same style 10 times... take me. My Enigma time is 34:54, but the next best is 1:02:34, and I don't cheat

ye thats more to teh point, my tt is about 52 and my times are all up and down like that to teh max, someone better than me will make a better guess at that than me,
or play external levels instead, and say you have to save every best rec anyway

maybe he is just better than you. if he has a tt of 53 and really cheated chanxes are big he woyld have gotten much better tt. I bet he doesnt cheat, when I did my 1st wr I must have had over 1 h in tt. (couldnt finish aninal farm and soem other lev(s) I was too lazy to do)
