Bugs - Exploits - Duping

Please report all exploits to uobugs@uo.com and tcbugs@uo.com. Abuse of a exploit is against the TOS for Ultima Online and will lead for action taken against your account. Thank you for helping keep our community bug-free.

Yours truly,

Speedman follows his original post with ...

Examples of a exploit,

- Speed Hacking/Teleporting/Subterrain Travel - If character position in an MMORPG is determined by the client side (usually not the case), it is possible for players to send out artificial positional data and be instantly transported to any part of the world or used to speed up traveling speed by increasing positional deltas.

- Holes - Some games may contain accidental holes in the map, allowing the player to get under the map. Holes are mostly harmless, although some use them in player vs. player situations to sneak around and get behind their opponent. (Doubtfully in Ultima Online)

- Botting - A player who runs a third party program to control their character. The bot will kill monsters, loot money, mine ore, collect herbs or gain levels automatically without the player having to be in front of the computer. (Also known as scripts)

- Duping - Duplicating, or replicating items or money.

-Game Mechanics Exploits / Bug Exploits - There are also other exploits involving the physics of the game, sometimes in conjunction with items. This includes using wall-walking to get into unfinished areas or abilities to make one's character unattackable by mobs or other players and sometimes are able to attack back.

- Data Mining - This is typically most common around the time that a patch is released on the public test realm of World of Warcraft. Players will try to access files not yet in game and then host them on websites to expose content not yet released (usually new zones, items, and graphics).

Yours truly,

You hear about it and from time to time you see the the Axe come down. I think it might be coming down again soon from the sounds of this post.

Hang on tight cheaters, EA is coming for you :-D

"artificial positional data ..... increasing positional deltas" sounds like Star Trek lingo to me!

It seems that the thread has been removed from UHall ...

since they aren't sure if it was Speedman ...

Imposter?

Actually, I think it was the real Speedman. He did stop by to say howdy on my blog and on Tomas' as well. But seeing how we're on new forums and all that jazz, it is indeed wise of the Mods to get confirmation from Jeremy. An imposter would suck, but so would stoning the real guy by mistake
