Setup totally made for half lap, but somehow the do 10 laps with that...
Well, sometimes they'll show up (it's usually 2, but sometimes 1) in a car that is not in the server list. For example, they'll show up in Koenigseggs in a Radical only server.
Sometimes they'll call for a vote for next session as soon as they enter, but sometimes they'll wait until the race starts. The call for a vote prevents another vote from starting, meaning you can't start a vote to kick them out. This allows them to wreck everyone's cars without fear of being booted. This is NOT a hack, but poor programming on Simbin's part. Supposedly, you can call for a vote for next session and that will supersede a vote to kick, but not the other way around.
Also, their cars are indesctructible. This is a hack. The never suffer any kind of damage no matter what they hit.
Another hack is that they can drive the wrong way on the track without getting DQ'd. This makes it easier for them to run into people and destroy their cars and the race.
They also impersonate people who harrass them and warn others as to what they are up to. I am one of many people they have pretended to be, so they can ruin our names and reputations and get us banned from servers.
Simbin should fix the programming glitch and allow an initial vote to kick to supersede a call for next session, and to stop another vote from being started. They should also fix it so that once someone is booted from a race/practice/qualify, they cannot immediately connect back in, like they can now. It's very frustrating to finally get a hacker booted, only to have him connect right back in.
They change their names all the time (Options\Profiles) so it's hard to keep up with them, but they usually use goofy names like "Hevy Impaler", "Juicebox", etc. But they also use legitimate looking names like "Carl Carlson". These are a few of the recently used names.
Just keep on the look out for someone in a wrong car, calling for a vote for next session as soon as they get in, or when the race starts, someone driving the wrong way without getting DQ'd, and someone whose car doesn't get damaged after a crash. Those are the best signs to look for.
