[Server Admins]: How to know if someone is forging AlphaMAC message?


Author Post
RyBack Some cheaters out there might fake the AlphaMAC message. Here is how to detect them:
Tools: AlphaMAC running, player status command from rcon or admin menu:
To see a list of active players using AlphaMAC , press CTRL+L and open console.
-If suspect is in the list:
If alphamac message client port number is the same as his "qport"/"client port" from rcon/admin menu status, then the player is all good.(unless alphamac shows he is dirty ofc)
If port numbers are different, that player is faking the #AlphaMAC-> message and should be banned.
-If suspect is not in the list:
That player is faking the message and should be banned !

Note:
0 screenshots is a bug but if the above instructions lead to "the player is cheating" then you should ban him too!
Keep catching them cheaters
Juninho8Slo Hello AlphaMAC Team. :D

Does AlphaMAC work if you forget to press Ctrl+L? An example:You start playing MOH:AA on X server,press Ctrl+L and right away AlphaMAC shows your status:

1: You,Yourself=Status Pure,ID Channel/ID Code...
2: Player 2=Status Pure,ID Channel/ID Code...
3: Player 3=Status Pure,ID Channel/ID Code...
4: Player 4=StatusPure,ID Channel/ID Code...

and after a few min of playing,AlphaMAC shows status for the player who is not on a  AlphaMAC list. "Player Xfahfkag,Pure Status...ScreenShoot 7" Does that mean he,s/she,s running AlphaMAC but he/she didn,t use Ctrl+L command or does that mean he/she is using Fake AlphaMAC status? Even if you leave the game the little pop-up window show status for 4 players(Left,Pure,Pure,Pure) but it doesn,t show any status for player Xfahkag.

Thank you for your answer(s) and help.

Enjoy

If "Xfahkag" has different server ip, he's not faking it.
If it has same ip, he might be faking it.
Take note that I'm assuming all the info given here are not missing anything
Generally: If player sends messages ingame but is not on AlphaMAC list, he's either:
a) not running AlphaMAC 
b) not running AlphaMAC on the same server ip
