Uninstalled the hacks just encase, my account has been checked twice already on vacbanned.com
Edit: Been checked 3 times, on average, the people who are banned have 50+ checks. So if you use the hacks too much or make it obvious, you will be checked more.
According to vacbanned.com, I was checked twice before being banned so not all people that are banned have a lot of checks. I've only used lolbie's trainer for additional tokens and House's texture mod.
Maybe the guys that are banned for using this are using Reduce Foliage
For everyone, dont use the option Reduce Foliage! it will remove bushes
I was playing a game a few months ago on arkaden, you guys know that there are curtains
in that house at the rounded bar right, well with the Reduce Foliage option i didnt see the curtains only thing
i saw was a window so i jumped on a couch and i shot 2 guys, they were like WallHACKER!!! i was like heh wtf??
i got some reports for that lucky im not banned ;D
Nope, they r saying:
Use caution when installing any game modifications, such as scripts or custom skins. Only download custom content from trusted sources. Hackers sometimes maliciously disguise their cheats to cause others to get banned
What actually means scripts/skins are not bannable but software from untrusted publishers may contain cheats what we dont know of wich will get you banned. its only a warning
VAC can't ban for textures, unless as they say, the texture installers also malicously inserts changes to the game files that VAC does detect.
Reduce foliage is risky, and should only be used if you REALLY know the maps. It's very easy to forget, shoot through a fence or piece of cloth that shouldn't be possible to look through, which in effect gives you a limited wallhack.
Coloured player models in itself isn't possible for someone to spot as a hack. Essentially it looks like you're a player with great vision and reflexes, but unlike wh/aimbot there's nothing "impossible" about the way you do play with coloured player mpodels, to someone who would spectate your gameplay.
I do know for a fact that certain VAC employees manually check gameplay of some players. Apparently IW also has started to manually banned based on videos they manually review (Bancandy). The point is, using only textured models and avoiding reduced foliage will make your gameplay indistinguishable from someone who's actually good.
I'm also skeptical of people who "claim" to have gotten banned for "only" using a hack that is per definition undetectable. Either you used reduced foliage or something else. I remember people "claiming" to get banned for "only" using FoV changer. I have it on personal sources that VAC *could* but will never ban FoV change use, because they do not consider it an advantage, at least not in the degree that it's hacking.
trust me when i say you can get banned for this. i'm not saying you will but you can. i personally believe it revolves around skill level, with the coloured players i was able to beast up 48-4 tdm on underground. and sadly that was my average score. getting frequent 30-0 free for all was fun too.
