Hello, i like NS very much.
Cheaters are rare, but there are plenty scripting players.
Example, there many fade and skulk scripter using scripts that allow extrem fast switch between weapons, rotations and many other things.
And yes i see marines walking very fast to.
So please use an anti-cheat/script system and make only the controlls you have aviable
A good player dont need stupid scripts, play with your mouse or your keyboard but no damn scripts.
So please Unkown world team, stop it <img src="style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/nerd-fix.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid="::nerdy::" border="0" alt="nerd-fix.gif" />

My english isnt good, so forgive. <img src="style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smile-fix.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile-fix.gif" />

    NS tricks and bhopping arent that hard to master. Anything you can do with a script can be done without one, with the exception of a lerk 2jump script.

    This is a very sensitive area of discussion around these boards. Whether you have a positive or negative opinion of <a href="" target="_blank">scripting</a>, it is really best if you avoid talking about it at all.

    That being said though, my personal feeling on the subject is that mp_blockscripts should never have been made a working cvar, as it really just caused a big separation line of skill among public servers. By turning on that command you really just influence people to use macros instead of their scripts.

    mp_blockscripts 1 would be the variable you're looking for when choosing a server to play on.

    However, this is pretty much disputed across the world, with the US servers preferring to play mp_bs 0, and the EU servers being mp_bs 1 (most of them). If you're in the states, and wanting to play on a script free server, then you're pretty much sh*t out...

    Did you know that the devs specifically added a new key to "allow extrem fast switch between weapons"? It's in 3.2 (+movement), and you can try it out.

    Almost no scripts are cheats (and I glanced at the link above--it seems like a good read) now that "special" scripts are blocked.

    Educating yourself about what cheats actually are, and how they work will help you avoid making threads like this one in the future.

    Scripts should be disabled by default. I dont understand why they need to be possible in the first place.

    When ive done scripts, be it HL2 or Wolfenstein ET or whatever, without exception they enable me to do things that wouldnt be possible if i didnt know how to script. Frankly, im sick of scripts or macros, any shape or form.

    NS2 really has to take in consideration the next generation of "questionable" forms of possible exploits, namely macros. Ive seen some pretty amazing crap in BF2 and what people have done with macro spam. Any scripting or macroing just dont have place in FPS style game, i cant think of any use for scripts/macros besides "exploit".

    No one in the right mind will buy expensive hardware and then not use it to give that extra edge over other players. Then again, anyone who is looking for a fair fight isnt going to buy such a toy in the first place...

    Software macros exist, if you were implying they were hardware only.
