What "IF" we don't have filters?

6 posts in this topic

Just asking,  what IF there are no filters listed in the battleeye folder?  does that mean NO ONE will get kicked since there is nothing to compare against?  or does it mean MORE people will get kicked because there are no exceptions?

I'm trying to wrap my head around how the .txt files work in battleeye... if they are meant to add EXTRA security,  or are they there to allow MORE files to run without battleeye interruption. 

For example,  Infistar admin comes with premade .txt you are supposed to put in the battleye folder,  are they there to help anti-hacking effort?  or purely to allow infistar to work properly without getting blocked itself? 

I've searched a lot, and read a lot,  but cannot wrap my head on the battleeye side of things.    With filters or not,  players still getting kicked when they use/buy any CUP vehicles,  so I'm confused to say the least. 

Any help is appreciated.

No txt files mean no restrictions.

for example

deleteVehicle.txt

Having this file, with no exceptions means if I ran "deleteVehicle cursorTarget;" I get kicked. 

If I remove the filter (.txt file) I can run the code, or if I add the code to the exceptions within the file I can run it.

Short answer, remove the files, no restrictions. Less security.

I just leave these three thoughts here:

  • It requires you exactly 24 lines of code to bypass BattlEye security.
  • If you disable BE completely, your server will be listed as "unsecure" in the server browser, calling out for scripties
  • The client does not (easily) see the script filters. So if you remove the filters, a scriptie will only see that you run BE, but they cannot see that you do not have filters. They can only risk being banned by testing out.

It is up to you.

IMO, all of the major stuff is taken care of by the other filters (remoteExec, publicVariable, setDamage). You can use scripts.txt to add an extra layer of security, but as Eichi said, scripts.txt is easy to bypass, and the skiddy might not necessarily know that you don't have script filters.

If you have a small/private server and whitelisting filters takes alot of time, just remove em all. Put em back when you start seeing hackers on your servers.
