HELP my clan is being stalked by a Hacker


Recommended Posts

On the 2142 my clan [E)S(D] are being stalked by a hacker which you can view form here:





As you can see from the Alias the perpetrator is M.F.A http://www.2142-stats.com/M.F.A+stats.html

we have tried to ban him from our server but he uses a keygen so is always changing his GUID as well as using a hack that makes 2142cc and in game console commands useless. We have contacted E.A. countless time but they fail to do anything


This is just to show that [E)S(D] do not cheat but are unlucky enought to have a stalker for all the wrong reasons.

So how can i enter this

Send it through rcon and he'll be automatically added to your ban list.


Entering the command into your pb config is not required as the command only needs to be sent once, not every time PunkBuster is restarted.

Okay that works a dream but it is stopping one of our member joining the server also as he also has an ip starting with 88.108, is there a way i can allow him but still ban the M.F.A guy ??

you can unban the hacker or leave them both banned..... If you lower the ban range the hacker will just get a diff ip close enough to come back... if the guy is dumb enough to use the same name you can ban the name also..wish there was more help for ya,,maybe go to his house and beat him w\ his own keyboard :P

Then you have to narrow down the ban mask to the actuall IP, then he will most likely change that IP anyways, but you can try.

What is the IP address of your clan member, and is your clan members IP address static or dynamic?


I don't want to put my clanmembers ip on show but it is static as it doesnt change but i do know M.F.A ip changes like the weather bit the first two set always stay the same i.e. 88.108

You missed his point.....look up your clan members ip ,,say its and it never changes as you said ,,ban around it .....ban up to it then skip his then start the ban range again at .

What code would it be for me to ban a certain range of ips upto another ip.


say the members ip is


to make this clear i ban every ip from upto (leaves clan members ip unbanned) then ban from to 88.108.999.999. correct?


im one of rogu3granny's co-leaders and lets just say im more happy doing this kind of stuff.

Two ways:


1) Manually open pbbans.dat and delete the line referencing '88.108.'


2) Using rcon, do 'pb_sv_banlist'. Locate the ban, and it will have a number (example, 1476). Use pb_sv_unban '1476'.

kk so ive removed the previous ban now to ban all 88.108. ip's but without banning the members ip which is so i would enter pb_sv_banmask 88.108.2 correct? then keep entering that up until 88.108.9


That would mean if the ip goes 88.108.1xx.xxx they would be allowed on. If the ip went anywhere between and 88.108.999.999 then they would be kicked. correct?

I am posting here to confirm that Rogu3granny is correct, and that hackers are indeed abusing his server.


I can be sure of this because one of them used his server yesterday to name-spoof me and get that soldier on the PB bans list (so I discovered today).


I have received a private message from your founder RodeoBob confirming that my REAL guid is in fact clean, and since I am still able to play I have nothing to worry about, however, it happens that Rogu3granny hates my guts (we have argued about political things in fora that have nothing to do with the game) and I am banned from playing on his server. This means that whoever name-spoofed me was unaware of just how stupid it was trying to spoof someone on a server from which I was banned in any case, and could not possibly join and play, let alone use gamehacks!


As I have mentioned, Rogu3granny and I are about as far from friends as can be, although in this instance I am inclined to lend my support to his cause, because cheats and hackers are the bane of BOTH our lives, and so I hope we can find at least that much common ground.


Best wishes all,

... and with all outstanding issues resolved, I would say time for closure.

If anyone wants to instigate a kiss and make up session, please use the forum pm feature or clan forums :rolleyes:
