How to mod & play with friends safely?

Topic created ยท 6 Posts ยท 123 Views
  • So I got into creating a mod menu for BO2 Zombies lately, just for fun, I always wondered how these things are working. I managed to do simple functions like being able to modify the ammo in my weapon, or taking no damage from zombies, it could be really fun. I played a few rounds just to figure out how to do it properly, not by hand, next thing I got banned for a week.

    That's ok, since I was "cheating" technically, but I was in a custom game alone / with a friend. I know there is a way to disable anti-cheat, but I would like to play with my friends while using my mods. I do not intend to use this in any public lobby! And I can't find a way to disable anti-cheat and play with friends, we were unable to join each other's game.

    Can you please link a short tutorial so I can cheat in a lobby with my friends, while not getting banned permanently?

  • @BrightyMVP Just run your mods on a private dedicated server.

  • Ohh, its a client side mod. I overwrite data on specific memory adresses, so my client uses "hacked" data, like infinite ammo. It is unable to do it if my client is not the host machine.

    Infinite ammo cannot be done client-side. If you are doing something like infinite ammo, you are still changing the server-side address for yourself. Maybe infinite ammo was a bad example but I imagine everything you want to do, you can use a plugin/gsc mod on the server.

    But to answer your question, there is no way to load mods on your client in non-lan mode and not get banned

  • @BrightyMVP Plugins work on dedicated servers, create a folder called plugins in your data folder. The server will load any dlls in that folder. Also if you want infinite ammo you can use gsc mods which are legit on dedicated servers.

    Since my client hosts the game - let's say a custom zombie lobby - if I change the value of the amount of bullets, it will be the default in the game, since I am the server. I could do that, so it is possible, but only if I host the game. Of course on external server it won't work, which is perfectly fine, because it was for me and my friends. Maybe infinite ammo was a bad example, but changing values inside your client is possible, since it acts like a server when I do host the game. Hope it was understandable ๐Ÿ˜„

    Thanks for the answer anyways!! I will check dedicated servers & mods, thanks!
