Seems like that would be a fun mini game.

level 2

The fun part is trying to exit the lobby.

level 2

Just play current GTA Online. It's like trying to escape the cheater, basically the same thing.

level 3

It's baffling they investing so much into mtx without making too much of an attempt to thwart hacking and cheating.

level 4

Well, I doubt they care about the PC playerbase. Most of their profits are from consoles.

level 5

I think it might be another issue. Since the only way, let's be real, to own most if not every vehicule, out for the last two years, the other way is ... hackers. Hackers who drop money.

So there's an acceptance of hackers, and most of them are not being reported. Which in the end just leave massive leaks of the game not being fixed because R* cannot simply trace what an hacker did if he is not reported.

It's only a theory. So watch out.

level 6

Yup. I was playing GTA V and my first online game a hacker shows up and drops just an ungodly amount of money from the sky on me. The game then starts getting weird as buildings and cars and all sorts of weird shit starts falling out of the sky. Someone might have reported him but i doubt it. We all became insanely wealthy in 10 minutes so i just stopped playing.

level 6

Money-spawning cheaters are dealt with swiftly and often without player intervention. Griefing haxx0rz, on the other hand, can get dozens of reports dumped on them to no effect.

level 4

Unless it's free money cheaters/hackers and then they fix it within the hour or fix it later and erase the money

level 5

Been on the hacker wagon since the game came out.

Been given money before and after the cashocalipse.

I think I'm down to 5mil now.

level 6

So you can afford 2 cars.

level 7

... yes.

I mostly quit for the loading screens. I couldn't take it anymore.

level 8

Single player load screen advertising multiplayer micro transactions...

level 9

I'll join a race!

Loads into game. Load to find lobby. Load from lobby to race Get spun Race ends. MORE LOADING

level 4

It's the same business philosophy as PUBG. You don't fix the game to make cheating difficult, or permanently ban cheaters, you let them get away with it for a while and then ban their game copy so that they can buy a new one and start over again. Why do you think GTAV was for so long in the top sellers list in Steam?

Cheaters buying more copies all the time == $$$
Normal players having a cheater-free experience == nothing.

level 2

Yeah, and there were tons of different types of mini games we would try to come up with when GTA 4 originally came out. The online free roam was totally unprecendeted. We saw it as this amazing new playground and wanted to make maximum use of it.

One game I liked playing was Smear the Shit, which just invloved one person on a motorbike trying to evade everyone else in vans.

After the Gay Tony expansion was released there was a bug where you could gain altitude with the parachute by tapping both the triggers. We used that to play game that involved shooting rockets at each other on the downtown roofs with weapon damage turned off. The explosions would still send you flying hilariously and you would still receive fall damage if you hit the ground BUT if you were able to recover and pull your chute you could theoretically fly back onto a roof and continue the game.

Of course there was always the ongoing competition to see who could get thrown in a car the furthest from the glitchy swingset.

Far too many fun little games we would play to list. Now that nostalgia has come back Im gonna see if people are still playing GTA4.

level 1

I have the urge to yell bravo and clap. That was damn near short film worthy. Had suspense. Drama. Action. Horror. Was just missing Meaghan Fox or perhaps Brooklyn Decker running around.

level 2

Meaghan

Got enough letters mate?

level 3

I figured I'd go with the version of the name with the most characters in case I got the spelling wrong.

level 4

A solid plan :)

He's collecting the leftover bits after her plastic surgeries. That's why he has a little extra.

Plastic surgery you say,

Does she still have her terrifying toe thumbs?

level 5

Well I was hoping to sleep tonight but now that image will be with me all day.

Hmm... We call them modders because all they are doing is downloading a simple mod menu to cheat with. They are not hacking anything. And calling them hackers is misleading.

level 3

Hence cheaters

Yes but that sounds like word that is overused by 8 year olds so it has less meaning. "Modder" means "I know you're not special and you just downloaded a mod. good for you, dick"

level 5

I know what you mean, but modding is a legitimate talent, and has far reaching meanings beyond gaming.

These assholes are not part of the modding community

level 5
13 points · 8 months ago

With the slight difference that the term IS ALREADY USED for people creating content.

So what you are saying is misusing an already existing word has more meaning than using the correct one.

level 6

If you create a mod, you are a modder.

That term is taken.

level 3

Modders also implies an in depth knowledge of coding and game manipulation. And modders... true modders create masterpieces that add more content to the base game.

Cheaters, or script kiddies as some call them just download a basic cheat menu program and toggle various things on and off.

Using ‘modders’ as the word to describe script kiddies is just plain wrong and it paints mods/modders as shitty people, when in fact, most of the time they are helping to create a better game by adding features that had never existed before.

level 4

Cheater is too bland and script kiddies is too long. Abbreviate them to skiddies. Because they're skidmarks of society.

level 3

Modders as a term refers to people who create mods. Like the modders who make skyrim/fallout mods.
So calling them modders is misleading as well.

People who download and use mods are end users.
People who download and use cheat apps are cheaters.
People who download and use scripts written by hackers are called "script kiddies"

level 4

I think we can all agree on the term "Mod Using Cheater Kids" or M.U.C.K. for short.

level 5

Mucker, I like it! And it gives that smug sense of self confidence when someone asks you what it means, and you get to spell it all out for them.

level 5

I just call them Lesters since GTA:O came out. A lot of them get angry about the term.

level 4

Skiddies.

level 4

I dunno.. by that logic they're all end users I think.

level 4

You wouldn't download a car

level 3
18 points · 8 months ago

Let's just call them script kiddies.

level 4

Skiddies. Because they're skidmarks of society.

level 4

Or marble instead

level 3

I prefer calling them script kiddies, it doesn't give the cheaters credit and it doesn't give mods a bad name, just the people abusing them.

level 3

back then we called them lammers or script kids...

level 3

Let's call them Menunaires.

level 3

No it isn't. Hacker = cheater. You insult modders when you do this. You look uncultured when you talk that way.

"People who hack large companies don't hand-code all the hacks they use... made by either themselves..."

level 5

I'm sorry but if you can read those words, you most certainly can read the word "all".

level 3

How is it possible that you kids are this stupid, that the obvious word cheater does not even occur to you here, you go straight to "hackers."

level 2

One term is script kiddies, for their use of (probably butchering the terminology) scripted mod menus. Though it's a tad long to say. So let's abbreviate it: skiddies. Because they're the underwear skidmarks of society.

level 3

Close. Script kiddies emerged in hacking culture to describe someone who doesn't understand the actual inner workings of a system but just downloads script to hack for them.

level 2
PlayStation1 point · 8 months ago

The word modder originates in the earlier console days of xbox/ps2/PS3/xbox360. In order to fuck with the game, you would have to get your hands on a modified or "Jtagged" developer console (hence "modder") usually through buying one or following a shady tutorial that might brick your console. No real skill required, so people went with calling them modders rather than hackers.

level 2

Can create epic moments like this though, pretty funny and chaotic, the way some people like GTA.

It was in the earliest GTA game. It was originally a racing game, but there was a bug in the AI that caused chasing cars to swerve and crash if you drove fast enough. This was fun, so they changed the game to a cops & robbers dealio.

That's different

Oh I do, but literally any gif anywhere of somebody running from something there is some fucking cunt thinking they're super clever and make the same fucking prometheus joke every time. They could just leave it at that, but no, it's not fucking funny enough, they need to type out the fucking word ding just so you know this is in fact a reference to cinema sins, it fucking disgusts me, you people make me physically fucking sick

level 10

Don’t include me in your “you people.” I said nothing to criticize your precious movie. If you’re getting physically sick over comments like that, maybe you need to take a break from the internet for a little.

level 1

Lol that shits terrifying

level 1

I like the moment after the motorcycle goes down, where it looks like he might have escaped. Then a couple of seconds later everything goes to shit. Nice moment of hope snatched away, very cinematic!

level 1

This looks like that car scene from Alone in the Dark

I haven't heard this game referenced in awhile, but I actually thought the same thing. Game got some hate but I didn't mind it

This guy isn't a modder, he's a hacker. Don't conflate the two.

edit: Cheaters is a more proper term.

level 2

Hacking suggests the person knows what they're doing when it comes to messing with the game code. With the exception of the hack/mod/cheat creator, these guys aren't hackers of any sort. They're exploit and hack abusers, script kiddies, whatever. Not hackers.

level 3

Cheaters, that was the word I was thinking of.

level 2

he's not a hacker any more than he's a modder.

Although this is also indistinguishable from many of the games I played with fellow modders back in the day - believe it or not, there are many modders who are active in multiplayer games and shit like this is how we had fun.

I will never forget the beauty of my sniper-rifle-that-shot-sticky-grenades in Halo 2. I was so proud of that thing. But it was a bit OP, so I usually stuck to the Banshee-shotgun or the Momentum-smg (did no damage but had force kickback)

We never played in public matches because who wants to get banned, you know? But plenty of folks sought our games out because crazy shit like this can actually be really fun.

Simple "hackers" usually don't do stuff that's this flashy.

level 3

The problem is the lack of context in this. I'm just going off of the assumption that this is a public match.

level 2

It's a phenomenon only existant on r/GTAV

level 1

lost my bonnet, better turn my lights on!

This is unacceptable. I always leave the lobby immediately when I see a modder and Rockstar took away 4 million of my money for some reason, haven't played for 4 months.

F.E.A.R. 3 (or F3AR) had a coop game mode called "Fucking Run" where you had to outrun a fog or something that instakilled you. Probably the only good thing in that game.

level 1

Fuck everything about that screen shake, damn it's excessive

Stuff like this is the reason I much prefered the game on console. I dont know how it's like these days. But I played Gta4 for like 500-700 hours on console and maybe saw 1 or 2 cheaters in all that time. (Rpg spammer for example) Gta 4 and 5 are so sad to play online on PC, there's barely a lobby without a modder/cheater since always. I remember buying Gta4 on PC and I dont even have 1 hour overall played on PC, the modded shit-lobbies I saw made me want to delete the game right away.

Edit: Lel, the butthurt pc-modder downvotes because they never experienced an actual fun session without modders in those games, cant help it, dudes!
