How game hacks work and why they usually aren’t fixed

This post was originally written for Guild Wars 2 (specifically in explaining why ArenaNet hasn’t stopped fly hackers stealing orbs in WvW yet), but applies to pretty much any and every online game with damage/fly/wall/aim-bot hacks. In this post, there are two sections: “How does game hacking work?” and “What kinds of hacks are there?” I’m reposting it here after hearing about the recent Final Fantasy XIV hack as it is a “how-in-the-world-was-this-even-allowed-to-happen” example of a network connection hack described in the last section, although technically no game client is even needed in FFXIV’s case and no decryption is necessary …

[GW2] FRAPS Test

(Direct download) 2012-09-04 – “FRAPS Test” – Guild Wars 2 Blackgate WvW. Recorded by Valkyrja Flame [RQ] of RageQuit Inc. Song info shown at the end of the video. No copyright infringements intended. This is NOT a complete video. This is a short clip for testing how well FRAPS works with Guild Wars 2 and Mumble at 1600×900. The test video simply shows me log in for the first time, create the guild, then load into WvW, no actual gameplay footage. My external hard-drive broke prior to launch (new one should be arriving some time this week) so this is …

[GW2] Critical Hit

(Direct download) 2012-04-27 – “Critical Hit” – Guild Wars 2 PvP video. Recorded by Valkyrie of RageQuit Inc. PvP Warrior, rifle-axe burst-crit build. Song info shown at the end of the video. This is PvP footage from the first Guild Wars 2 open beta weekend (for those who pre-purchased the game). Was extremely busy this week with school work so this video only contains FRAPS capture from a few hours of gameplay. The game ran pretty smoothly on my Dell XPS 17 laptop, but network lag was quite problematic (e.g. see the second fight against the charr warrior). There was …

(Direct download) 2012-04-27 – “Fly Away” – Guild Wars 2 PvP video. Recorded by Valkyrie of RageQuit Inc. PvP Warrior, rifle-axe burst-crit build. Song info shown at the end of the video. After making my first GW2 PvP video (“Critical Hit” v=S0kTqCy8un8), I realized I had enough leftover random footage of group PvP to make a second video. As of the moment, the “queue as group” functionality of PvP isn’t implemented yet, so this is just a few clips of me messing around in PvP, some of which with other RQ members. As for the song choice… the fluidity of …
