Rivastation meldt dat Asus nieuwe GeForce drivers heeft geprogd die het mogelijk maken om semi-transparant door objecten heen te kijken of in wireframe-mode te gamen. Dit biedt biedt cheaters de mogelijkheid om tegenstanders te zien op plaatsen waar dat helemaal niet mogelijk hoort te zijn. Om die reden is het sterk de vraag of deze ontwikkeling wel gewenst is:
Taiwan, Taipei July 18, 2000: ASUSTeK Computer, Inc. announces its new secrete weapon for AGP-V7700 and AGP-V7100 series graphics cards – the 3D SeeThrough TM technologies. “ASUS always provides the best value for our customers.” said Jonathan Tsang, vice president of marketing and sales division of ASUSTeK Computer Inc. “The ASUS 3D SeeThrough TM technologies are developed for users to be a constant winner in the adventure or action 3D games. There are three special weapons for ASUS VGA cards’ users – Transparent View, Wireframe View, and Extra Light. If you do not have an ASUS VGA card – be careful! Never compete in the 3D games with anyone who has an ASUS VGA card. Because the only result is to loose”. [break] Deze press release had een stortvloed aan kritiek tot gevolg, waarop Asus inmiddels heeft besloten om de release van de See Through drivers uit te stellen: [/break] Asus has decided to call back this driver. However, since the See-Through utility can let end user to learn some idea of how 3D work. Engineer team also spent many effort on that, so we will release a Try-version with limited usage to promote this technology and let user to decide how it will be. The official document will post soon. [break]En omdat de meeste tweakers onder ons beter uit de voeten kunnen met de taal van onze westerburen in plaats van onze oosterburen hier weer een Babelfish vertaling van het Duitse artikel van Heise:[/break]Mogel driver for Action Shooter for the time being stopped
The hardware manufacturer Asus for plans concerned itself plentifully negative comments in, its diagram card drivers with a Mogel mode to provided, in order to be able to detect in act ion plays opponents in former times . Asus stopped now the new driver only once again.
With 3d SeeThrough should become in Ego Shootern by Hotkey of walls transparency respectively the player environment than wire model (Wireframe mode) to appear. Hidden weapons or opponent would be then immediately visible. With such a function one would be far superior in on-line plays to other fellow players. The Entruestung was accordingly large in the on-line play municipality. Even if Asus 3d SeeThrough had planned only as an assistance in the single Player mode, the application did not have to be prevented in on-line plays. The manufacturer tried now to find together with play developers a solution limits the assistance of this type on the single Player mode.
Mogeleien are not in on-line plays new topic: Always there were secret commands (Cheats), with which one can make textures transparency, or Skripte (Aim Bots), with which one meets with each shot. Counter measures, like the query of the size of PAK files with the 1100er-Patch von Counter Counter-Strike, are usually gone around after few hours already again.
