Cheater ‘newifyy’ banned + the future of anticheat in GoldSrc speedrunning

posted in: GoldSrc, Half-Life, News | 0

It has come to our attention that runner ‘newifyy‘ has intentionally submitted cheated runs to the ‘Scriptless’ category on the Half-Life leaderboards.

Rule broken (quoted from speedrun.com/hl1):

“Runs done in this category must not use the ‘wait’ command or any scripts, aliases, macros, turbo buttons, hyper-scrolling and so on..

Methods of cheating included enabling BXT‘s bxt_autojump cvar for frame perfect jump timing, as well as using an in-game script to consistently perform perfect object boosts.

All cheated submissions have been removed and ‘newifyy’ has received a 6 month ban from run verification.

We do not tolerate cheating in any shape or form. Anticheat improvements are currently being discussed and worked on for potential future cases.
