What about that? It gives me an advantage in a certain situation and is third party since it's Nvidia control panel.
VG does it halfassed as usual.

Man, you're a pain in the neck, there's no other way of putting it lightly. This is obviously something that won't ban you in this or any other game. Removing smoke, grass, textures and other settings like that will. What's the next thing you're gonna ask, will playing on 120 hz instead of 60 hz ban me? Will increasing gamma in-game to see darker places better ban me? Like, are we seriously discussing this?

Even AAA games had problems with this Nvidia Inspector and the only way of dealing with it was to block its profiles and ban anyone (permanently, mind you), not the other way around.

Yes. Cause VG does everything halfassed. And enforces their rules halfassed. Everyone with a bit of smart can find loopholes because they only put bandaids on issues.
Why didn't VG block it in the first place?
AAA says nothing about quality of the game and professionalism of devs.
It seems like every bit of critique and logic makes you a pain in the ass here. Criticizing people sucks I guess.

Easy question,
If people can tweak the character textures, why they could not tweak the map textures ?

@ike07
We're aware of this, will be fixed soon.
However,
1) only armor with camo/decals on it are affected by this - you can't use this to alter any other game data (like map textures)
2) using such "editing" on other players' armor is more tricky than editing your own textures (or textures of your squadmates)

It's the PvE map and he found a way to walk on water, which is just a texture...

Yesterday, ivan said :

And i discover today that he manipulate the map textures too, and you have confirmed this.
Yes it's a pve map, but there's no difference, a map is a map.
And this guy laugh because "he's been banned 10 times".

Nothing else to say...

What are you even talking about, he's sharing a clip of RedMiller doing that thing on water without needs of an external program on water, you can go to PvE right now and will find the spot.

Ban him for what? You find a spot in PvE where you can go outside of the map's limits and you should be banned for that?

The water exploit is nothing to do with manipulating textures. It is simply an exploit similar to some of the bugs where players could hide in textures. It is our responsibility to fix the texture bug.
