Bans for Using Third-Party Software

Discussion of the latest news and events related to Survarium.

05.04.2019, 12:34

Today we have banned over 60 accounts who have been using Nvidia graphics-tweaking capabilities to gain an advantage in-game. We are completely confident that our detection method is reliable and does not provide false positives. While this isn't exactly using a cheat, it is still manipulating the game to gain and advantage. This is a breach of the User Agreement, portion 7.2.5.

The players who have been caught have been banned for 1 day (as a show of good faith on our part). However, anyone who uses it from this point on will receive an immediate 1 month suspension. Failing to adhere to our warning and subsequently trying to manipulate the game's graphics again will lead to a permanent and irrevocable ban from the game.

We thank you for your understanding.
Survarium Team.

No, we won't publish the names, because we don't want to turn Survarium into a blame/shame game.

Keep reading. If they didn't notice, the next 1 month ban will make them notice it ;)

Out of curiosity - are there any screens to see what advantages they had?

In general this tweak removed grass on Cooling tower map and the central anomaly effect on Tarakanovsky fort. Also, it made the geometry extremely simple allowing for great visibility and easy spotting.

I'm not going to link anything though, for obvious reasons.

Chandrian:


Nvidia Inspector - да. В нашей игре он сильно помогает обнаруживать врагов, на больших расстояниях, поэтому его использование будет запрещено.

^FANTOM says that the use of Nvidia Inspector is prohibited now. Did the entirety of it got prohibited or only those features that allowed to tweak LOD ? I'm asking this because I'm using Inspector to limit my fps.

Well, if they do it again, they get a 1 month ban. Persist after that, and it's a permaban. Then they won't be laughing, will they?

1 day.
ONE day! xD
… for ruining whole communities game experience over long period of time and many matches.

They go partying, have a good laugh and are back.

List of all the names, or ""Shame and blame "", would be so much more effective to remove this habit and attitude to cheat.
Pretty disappointing i must say.

Edit : VG, perhaps you should delete the topic with how too use nvidia inspector with survarium (with a direct link to download), it's on this forum since 2015, i told you this twice and it's still here...

I would advise not using Nvidia Inspector at all because it's not official software. Limit your fps with Riva Tuner (comes with MSI Afterburner), which is just a monitoring software and is not bannable.

That said, I asked Support and they told me that this can be checked, write us the steps of how you use Inspector to limit your fps.

Run Inspector as admin > go to driver profile settings (wrench and screwdriver icon) > navigate to Sync and Refresh tab > switch Frame rate limiter from "off" to "60" > apply changes.

And why you don't limit your fps directly with the nvidia control panel ?

Because it doesn't work well with Survarium. Whenever I make sudden 180 moves it tends to drop a frame or two and I get a stutter.
