I am looking for a server scanner that allows me to scan user files, if possible without requiring the use of a client side program to be running or installed.

I tried the mg scanner(1.06), which appears very good...but I have a couple of questions about it:

Is it for MOHAA only or will it also work on spearhead?

If it also does work for spearhead, I can get it to scan skins but not scan for "suspicous" files!

and if I try to use manual scan it says all the packets are lost!!!

What options are disabled if the client side isn't running...?

anyways.....what I need is some pointers, answers, and advice....or just a link to a scanner that will do this....(I am willing to manually find all cheats and enter them into the scanner, lot of work but would be good cheat protection)

thanks,

Fat Bastard

I have tried running the counter intellegence program for the anti cheat and found it to be good at find a cheat but slow at scanning. The problem with CI is that even when you set the scan rate low it still has trouble scanning all the clients on a full server within a good time frame. It also seems to cause some lag if run on the same computer as the server, the only solution i have found is to have a second comp always running the anti cheat software and set up remotly to the server. I am going to give this new server scanner software a try and see how it compares to the CI. ! thing i did notice with the server scanner is that it also detects pk3 file mods which if it works would be great cause Ci doesnt due that. To answer your question to the best of me knowledge is you have to always have the anti cheat on or running to be effective.

CI

I found the same with CI and that overall it the interface was not to my liking, it also didn't detect any of the cheat mods we tested it with.

I like the fact the mg scanner is supposed to detect any .pk3's on the client that you list as suspicious. But again my problem was related to the manual scan causing packet loss and I couldn't get it to scan for .pk3's. I was curious if MG scanner works for spearhead? and I added several "suspicous .pk3 files and had people come into the server with them, but alas none were warned or kicked. It was as though it didn't even scan them. So what I wanted to know was, to scan the .pk3 files must the client be running a client connection similar to pandora?

Let me know how you found MG and if it scanned for you!

Cheers,

The topic you posted in is from 2003 so if anyone has knowledge of this now might be a longshot.

Anyway from my rusty memory I have a feeling an application called Foresight was server side only for anti-cheat so would assume that it works its magic while you're not connected.

With a bit of quick googling it brought up http://www.mohforesight.com/ so it might be worth a visit there and asking about your needs at that site. I'm pretty sure it was server side only unless they changed things in recent years.

What was considered the best in the hayday of MOHAA was DMW but that will require your clients to be running the client program otherwise they'll get kicked for not having it. That said I would personally recommend you avoid DMW as it is not what it used to be and if I'm honest the owner of that little project is a bit of an arse. They have a corrupt system of banning people for cheating who have done nothing of the sort these days, be wary!
