There is will be good if any anticheat sources are release. And we can compile it under Linux.

If you could compile it yourself, what is to stop you removing all the cheat protection? Unfortunately anticheat must remain closed-source to be functional.

Hi

It may be free but not open source, this does not imply creating the anticheat.

Indeed, customers (r1q2, aprq2, etc.) can perfectly read a anticheat compiled into Linux, but what are you releasing the source of r1q2?

Please be fair to you who do not use WINDOWS  wink

thx, bye

it was already said couple of times that there won't be anticheat for linux since it's dependent on some windows specific API and it's not possible to just compile it under linux.. and also there were some other issues, just click the search button

oh no!
I just downloaded Q2 for linux on 3G. But there are no servers I can play on. Perhaps it's time to start a linux only server protected by trust and a password?

Having the code in a compiled form is not a lot of security, as it can still be altered, it just takes longer. Source code would speed the process right up. So in this way the closed source side slows down script kiddies. Anyone with the brains to break the security presumably has better things to do.
An interesting subject.

Server admins prepared to run closed source is interesting. It shows that people are prepared to run something where they have to trust the person who made it. This I find interesting because sometimes these servers are running other things.
So anti cheat sounds like as much as a nightmare as DRM and other security subjects. What about working on identification and whitelisting?
