Oh my god, it's a miracle. For those who don't know what Stick Arena is, it's a player versus player overhead shooter. Here's the game on NG:
Immensely stripped down from the full version found on XGEN's site, which you can find here:
Man. when stick Arena was originally released there was fucking hackers everywhere. EVERYBODY hacked. I hacked, you hacked, our friend's hacked, it was practically mandatory to play the game. Hacks were pretty much undetectable unless the hacker in question did something like making himself have unlimited health or speed or something. The hacker could seem perfectly legit until the end of the match and everybody but them would get kicked. I WONDER HOW. Vote kick hackers were one of the worst. The first version of some hacking software didn't have anything to prevent you from being kicked, so if you wanted to stay on top you needed the newest hacks to combat hackers. It got to the point that when I was going to play clean I still had to use the hacked client just to make sure I didn't get kicked and could kick the still prevalent version 1 hackers.
Still, it was an enjoyable game at times. I slowed down on playing it around the launch of ballistick, and ultimate quit until recently. I don't know what happened over the course of when I quit and started, but there's hardly any hackers any more. I've only seen HP and speed hacks, and that's it. Most of the time it's just nice clean games. Worst day I've had playing was when I spotted 2 hackers. Amazing, that's like half of how many you would see in any match a few years ago.
Alas, I don't see much getting done about it. I read on the XGEN forums that the report button in game doesn't do anything anymore, so you have to do some convoluted mess of shit to actually report people. One thing is find a moderator, but I've never seen one in game to this day. Pretty ridiculous. I believe whoever made the original Stick Arena hacks was named Jake Harris and he had his own little site for giving away these exploits. Alas I can't find 'em anymore, so I don't know if he's behind the new hacks for Ballistick.
Ah well. Enjoy yourselves.
