So how come my key doesn't get reverse engineered in other games?  Is it because other games don't openly show a "unique" ID generated from your key to the public?

I've adminned a few games in the past, and generally unique identifiers are only shown on the admin console.  Is it just a mistake by the Arma devs to show someone's Arma ID to everyone on the server?  Infact, you even have to *give it out* if you want to be added to a squad.xml

Well any game that uses GS for a connection/browser provides all needed information...just that everything is in not the open,and thankfully the tools needed are not in the general public hands!

1) Any server can be -removed- from the GS browser list and will not show up until the server is rebooted.
(VERY unlawful!)

2)Games players that connect to a -poison- server can keep client keys "in use" until they close the server thus preventing such a user from connecting to other servers (key in use error).
This is as easy as not allowing the server to report back to the Master Key Server that the client has left.

2b) Saving the connection call to a .text file allows blocking saved users at a later date.
(may be unlawful)

Then you have the FAKE PLAYER.
Basically you can load fake players to any server...in just about any game...and fill it up so others can't join.

ArmA is subject ALL of the above...none of which are "game cheats" and any "how to" posts or files on this forum will get deleted along with the user account that submits them in public.

That's true. Looking at the XML's helped me get the ID's of a few ArmA forum shit heads.  :icon_laugh
