I thought someone said they got banned for texture hacks, is it true you cannot get banned? no risks at all?
No, not really.
I think they were using more than textures.
Textures are changed files on your computer, and VAC cant detect them.
Unless VAC begins checking the files (Which hasn't happened yet), your safe.
Not what I heard, I read that modding the files is more dangerous O_o so I've stayed away from textures + shizzle
Sorry to say, you heard wrong. VAC mainly Checks for .dlls attached to mw2, or any exe hacks running. If your files are different, it will not ban you, but kick you. However there are ways aroud the protection they set, as demonstrated by these texts.
