Default Is there such a thing as a 'Lag' cheat?
Reply With Quote


I haven't noticed anything funny with anything Omni, or much with Unreal servers to speak of.

I ask because I have played Quake 3 for years mostly on one crowded server - lag was always a problem - and seemingly random. I believe there are rampant cheats on that server, but for the most part they are wall hacks/aimbots.

I recently joined a different server with fewer players, and had no lag for about 35 minutes straight. A group of players with names I recognized joined into the game - about 4 or 5. Quake 3 has a 'lag-o-meter' box you can keep on the corner of the screen that shows lines for fps and dropped frames, etc... One of these new players, whenever I would confront him, my ping would collapse and the lag-o-meter show red lines (dropped frames). It happened on one map three times.

The next map was one of those open-space ones that the railgun snipers love to pick off the people flying off jump pads. I jumped and kept my sights on that player. My jump speed and animation was flawless until he turned his gun and pointed it at me - he did not fire - but I dropped several frames and ended up falling off the platform because my timing for landing was screwed up. I camped in one place as a sniper would do - and he was a sniper on the other side - whenever he pointed his gun at me the meter would show red lines. Even when I was not moving. I think he had a toggle for it because when he moved actively on the map nothing happened - but if he camped on one spot it would seem to happen every time.

I'm just wondering if there is some sort of cheat out there that makes your opponent drop frames of animation / get lag when they are shooting at you / or you are shooting at them. How could that be identified?

There is such a thing as a "lag switch" which is used for cheating.

I like how the article ends with, "Reputable online gamers do not use lag switches."
