I know I am known as a fanboy of sorts but I have to admit something about gms.

    As everyone knows I am a idocer and I am also the scout and one of the placers for my guild on Legends. During my scouting over the years and more so then ever in recent years I have noticed more script miners and ljers and there houses then ever before. I also come upon the random skill scripter when I am in towns buying cheap resoources (and this means you mr thief {not his real char name}training pick pocketing unattended in a very issolated mage shop) and for the last two years it was pointless to page on them since we had no real gms and you would wait hours (literally) in the que only to get a canned response.

    I had all but given up hope til last month I paged on someone and putt the char on my second comp behind me to wait for my uber canned response. Low and behold a gm actauly did come and since then that mule has been mia and the over a mil pouch he was using has not gained in any substantial weight. I being encoraged bye this started actauly doing some foot work and following the protecal and if not getting a response from said busy char paging on them with a stealther on my secondary comp. I have had more success in the last month and although the que is as slow as ever the gms are actualy taking action if the person is not attended.

    My two favotrite incidents have been when the theif that was scripting pick pocketing a packie disapeared his packie (with an empty pack) walked to the corner of mage shop that was in the direction of the bucs den macro prison.

    Then there is my personal favorite that happened last night where I paged on a script miner and was in the que for a few hours and he loggs in two other script miners and has all three running out of the same script house and after awhile the one I paged on disapears and the gm actualy deleted the 2 mil plus bag off there purch and the other two miners just recall back and forth trying to find the bag to place there resources in over and over.

    So I want to personally thank Jeremy and the rest of the devs and the gms as well for trying to improve one of there worst points of customer service and it is encoraging to know (even though its not perfect) you are trying to fix one of the biggest proplems in uo and that is cheating.:hug:

    I haven't played in years and I'm just starting to come back. I've never used anything besides UOAssist and UOAutoMap (which I guess is dead now :( )

    Just out of curiosity, how could you tell that these were unattended scripters mining and not someone just mining with UOA and recalling? Also, I thought years ago, maybe 2 or 3, some additional service company was added to UO that was supposed to prevent any scripting and cheat programs. Anti-Punks or something like that? Am I out of my mind?

    Thanks for your info and congrats on getting the scripters caught!

    Punkbuster was dropped for an unspecified reason, but was incidentally put into Mythic's newest MMO, Warhammer.

    I'm still pretty bummed about that. I hope they put it in with the new SA expansion.

    The way you know there scripting is when you page and when a gm finaly shows and trys to dialog with them they do not respond or they do not respond when a gm teleports them to another spot and you can see there resources being shifted in there pack because they float above there heads.

    LOL OK. I guess if a GM was talking to me and I was just going about my business mining, you could assume I was AFK too. That's fair enough. :)

    You wont see their dialog. Its in GM chat. Its like party chat for GMs. Stuff said to a player and said back to a gm is private. SO that debunks your theory everyone is out to get you by scripting.

    Stick to IDOCs, your not a policeman, quit trying to be one.
     
  7. I, for one, commend you for supporting this game by actively taking note and then turning in the scripters.

    And yes, we all should police our game because common sense will tell you that it is impossible for GMs to be everywhere. If we dont try to help cure the problem who will?

    Kudos to you and keep up the good work. If others dont like it...well maybe they have good reason not to.:D

    Good work. Do not get discouraged and continue.

    I have seen a scripter or two in last month, so I was thinking, what is current average gm queue waiting time.

  9. well at least everyone who reads this thread will know now :p

    Anyway as much as i dislike people that page on anyone which way from sunday for being a scriptor then do everything possible to try disrupt the scriptor thus informing them your onto them.. duh argh hRAGGHH!! rage :p...
    ...
    BUT.. Your clearly not one of those people, you clearly checked they were afk then paged then left it up to the appropriate people. well done sir and excellent job on getting some results from the gms.

    This people is what i mean by there being correct ways to approach the problem of afk scriptors.

    btw the que is still horrendouse and that is one of the focal points the scripters are relying on to continue cheating because there hopping no one will want to waste hours in the que. Well do what I did. You know there using either dual clients or multiple computers (Like I have at home). I just park a char at the offending persons house and because there so busy scripting I wont time out and just wait it out while using my other comp to play:scholar:

    Actauly doing multiple things in uo is one of the main draws for most of us. If I see some tool cheating and bye doing so telling me there time is more important then mine I will done the hat of the Karma Police happily. Especialy now that I know they are not unstoppable again.:D

    Good goin Plucky.

    I`ve seen an improvement in GM`s dealings with cheaters in general.Even tho the que takes soooooo long,you actually do (most times) see a red robe show up and yank the cheater to jail.Seen it a few times myself as of late.

    Gotta love it,only wish I could be the fly on the wall when that scripter comes back to their moms basement and says :eek:snap:


    :hahaha: :owned:

    here is a canundrum. What kind of accomplishment is it if you have to cheat to pvp (as everyone claims is why they do it because if they dont they will not be on an even playing fieild with everyone else). I know do this Ask Lance Armstrong, Pete Rose, Barry Bonds, or Mr I miss remember in front of a grand Jury.

    I take it as a padge of honor I cant pvp (but still can enjoy fel). I know that should be enough proof I dont cheat myself but hey.

    BTW I never paged on you Omni. With a title like you had is one one of youre uber peers would take care of and not me. Too bad I am not a leet pvper.....

    I never said you paged on me, I know who did. trust me everyone knows your a freakin idoc hunter. You tell everyone in almost every single post you make.

    I dont mind you page on scripters and cheaters. Thats all well and good. Its the fact that you have to tell everyone in UO about it, so you get your BADGE of honor.

    Im just saying find a different hobby.

  22. Well said Onmi!
     
  23. I do believe that the reason he added in his post the fact that he was an Idocer, was merely to show why he was "out and about" at various locations frequently, and thus being able to find a number of scripters.

    And really...so what if he tells everyone his "claim to fame" is being an Idocer...dont you do the same the thing with the sig you add to every post you make?:

    Keep up the good work Plucky! Dont quit posting about the scripters, let them know there are people out there watching and willing to turn them in.

    Omni I really dont expect you to respond to this but answer me this (and you cant)

    If I am a idocer that scripts at idocing and scouting specifically)

    Why is it that it is when I am recalling off my rune library books to every single player run house is when I find these unattended scripters if I am unattended myself as you and others claim (btw scouting and timing is the two hardest parts to idocing honestly and since I know you wont dare attack my guild member whom gets the times) then how in the bloody hell do I stop and know to invistigate and see if the char I found in the middle of nowhere is cheating or not?

    Do I have radar that no one else in uo has that defaults whenever my computer detects a script and pauses and hides my char? I mean Omni please please respond. Or any of the other posters (all of whom are in a rival idoc guild that is only posting here to troll and have not said one thing to unsubstantiate my claim other then juvenile remarks and comments).

    Or do I have a script that just stops my script whenever I see a char on screen ( I think if this was the case I would have allot of corpses around yew gate). So Omni or anyone else trying to claim I cheat please tell me lucidly and precisly from what you have scene bye my actions would say I cheat.

    Its not like I am not scene all over my shard recalling and do not respond whenever anyone trys to speak to me. I mean it would be suspicouse and with cause to call me a cheater if I was never scene out activly looking for houses or activly timeing the idoc time. I mean if I were just to show up at every idoc without being scene scouting ever and show up two minutes before every idoc then I would call myself a big cheater. I mean who can scout for idocs and get times without ever ever ever being scene. Ohh Wait I think we both know the answer to that.

    Ths is to anyone that calls someone a cheater back it up. I can but can you with facts? I am not calling anyone directly a cheater here and I dont pvp so could care less about Omni and if he cheats what I am saying is if you are going to accuse someone of something you better be able to back it up. So since I know you cant Omni (or anyone from my rival guild whom posted in this thread). I will putt this to rest.:loser:

    Ahh, my dear dear plucky. You know that I can answer, and that I will. Dont have to be cleaver and try to trick me into replying. I would ALSO like to say just for the record. I dont promote scripting/cheating. I think it is bad and not acceptable. But I also believe that not everyone does it. Just because they dont answer you, dosnt make them cheaters.

    First off, I would like you go back and read ANY of MY posts that I have ever said you cheated. Again, your trying to twist words to make someone look like a fool and make you look like the good guy:lie:. Please go back and find where I said you used any kind of cheats, and PLEASE REPOST HERE:link:.

    Okay, I know we all play a virtual game and have our own things we do. But seriously who takes the time to mark a rune TO EVERY SINGLE HOUSE on legends....EVERY ONE. Then recalls and checks them all every day.


    First, I dont know who gets your times. I dont care. Secondly I dont play Ultima 24/7 and wait up all day and night to kill your timer keeper. But I will attack ANY member of Fal that I see from now on. Just so you know, that I dont care about your silly guild.

    Alright you got me, I cant answer this completely silly question. Do you live on a submarine or live in an airport tower? Who has a radar? What?

    Umm, I think really I am the only other Legends person here besides you, well maybe Drav...but dont try to turn this into a Them vs me thing, I know, I know, you do that OHH SO WELL.

    Please again, tell me where I ever accused you of cheating? Also, I would like to add, I have PUBLICALLY tried to back you up on SEVERAL occasions when people would claim you and your guild use scripts to place. Since I was an original member of Fal, I always thought it prudent to at least stick up for you on that regard. To my knowledge, Plucky has never used a SCRIPT to get and advantage.

    I think you, being the best IDOCr ever in Ultima would know the answer to your own question. I dont think it would be hard to do that and not be seen. A little stealth goes along way.

    How can you back it up? Can you see their computer screens? Are they cheating because you pop in say HI ARE YOU THERE SCRIPTER OR ARE YOU CHEATING and they dont respond, does that mean they are cheating? Because they have alot of ore in a pack on a step? I know SEVERAL legit people who mine for weeks straight and do it attended. I mean can you see what their computers are running and doing? I mean how can you back it up? How?

    Oops. I did say that. It was late and I didnt mean to say that. I do apologize to plucky for that. I can say that I know no one in Fal scripts. It was a slip of the typing fingers and I fixed it.

    You know the first thing i thought when i read your OP.. >>pot calling the kettle black<<. Why you ask? well simple... Its impossible to be a successful IDOCer without a quality script. I have no idea why you started off your thread by stating "as you all know im a self proclaimed idocer blah blah blah" when most of us dont know who you are or as you put it 'as most of you dont know' who you are.(why not just start off by saying "im so popular i mean gosh i have so many posts and gosh im just so popular so listen up people i got something important to say".

    My point is you are getting this blank and negative feedback because your OP sounded.. well.... self serving ...and conceded. <sarcasm> Its obvious you want to be the leader of the stratics click.. you got a great avatar .. catchy name.. post count is getting up there, and your sig.. WOW what a nice sig, so colorful and everything. I mean you got it all. Your running a gravey train with biscuits wheels. Soon you will be the most popular thread starter on stratics. YOU GO GIRL!!!! </sarcasm> I’m a little suprised i dont admire you as you do yourself. ALL YOU HAVE to do is skip the self serving parts. If we already know all about you, then no need to go blabbing it at the top of every sentence you start. Personally i find you a little annoying. (man that felt good!!)

    ps. its hard to read your posts BTW. I can tell you rarely let anyone get a word in just by the way you write... 1400+'getAlife'.. many colors in the roamo rambow... song by runDMC.. homboy you talk to much and you never.....AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH is it just me or is pluck day

    Dude your entire post, was hard to read. I didnt understand any of it, and really wasnt anything other than a troll. Please dont derail this thread.
