SourceMod Anti-Cheat


Recommended Posts

I've always said catching cheats by scanning if they are running in memory was always a losing battle as the anti-cheat needs to know what to look for. Seems SourceMod Anti-Cheat is doing things a little better by looking for the actual cheating patterns instead. Not sure how well it works but seems like a step in the right direction.


Just goes to show if devs give modders some control (like Valve did with server plugins), things may be better for everyone.


SourceMod Anti-Cheat is a server-side plugin comprised of different modules to help protect your gameserver against common threats, hacks, scripts, exploits, commands, cvars, or cheats currently being used today to cause your servers harm.

It's been out for a few years it seems but I never noticed it since I haven't run a Source based server in years.
