Who ever got banned for .dat swapping though? :x
I liked my hume's new facial hair, thank you very much!
Yes, I know the main arguement would be for things that actually gave people an advantage.

This is just... Rather asinine.

But it's true Sefa, I personally have a group of 10-15 people I'll be playing with, and we're going on the same server.

They're telling their friends to await server choice as well.

I'm hoping they do have system this time around to ban people swapping dat files.

Came into this post with hope. Left with a sense of wonderment that anyone would post this.

If they really cared to, they could probably just run a file size sanity check during updates to catch most swaps. If they really wanted to be devious they can just hash check all the files.

I would dare you to try and get around it if they really wanted to stop people.

Dear O.P.,

It seems as though this thread is just fishing for an argument and is complete fodder for trolls. In the end, people will always be whining about something. In their minds they are justified, and likely nothing you say (no matter how rude and sarcastic) will change that. If you don't like it, stop listening.

hugs and kisses,
Olaurelindorenan

Considering switching .dat files don't effect anyone elce in any way, why would people care if they were banned. lol

But given posibility to switch .dat, the ONLY reason to have a second character is for different race stats.

Will not effect me, I'l go with the kitty and level everything as in FFXI.

Actually, that's not true. It's pretty easy to edit .dat files to cheat (in FFXI at least).

Oh, and "lol"

People used to swap .dat files in XI to make NMs stand out so they were easier to spot and claim.

Sounds like someone doesn't quite understand how .DATs work.

People used to swap .dat files in XIV to make NMs stand out so they were easier to spot and claim.

I heard people would also swap out chests to things like Behemoth for size, or something that made noise (A pot-type, I think?).

i love how ever post he makes is about exploiting the game in some way or another.

It's unfortunate we can't let SE know about this kid and get him perma banned early.


Long story short, stop making every post about exploiting, this is not what we are here for. Also you fail to notice that ever post of yours gets rated down. when you start as sub default in your posts... haha...

Btw, good job paying for premium services, you do realize Allakhazam is owned by a RMT company, right?


1. I didn't buy my premium, I got someone else to do it for me

2. Badmouthing a site is probably the QUICKEST way to get on their naughty list.

I love how you feel like anyone gives a **** about you being a pain in the ***. Okay, so you keep coming back. So... I guess we'll just keep rating you down. Really doesn't take too much of my time. You, on the other hand, are constantly burdened not only by having to make a new account frequently, but also by being a dumbass.

Also, knowing how to avoid being ip banned doesn't make you 1337. It just makes it that much easier for people to tell that you really have nothing better to do.

haha so true But we are alla trash, so what do we know.

I mean we could just take our bad attitude to a forum where no one wants us, our opinions are pointless.

What i wouldn't give to be an agoraphobic e-raging on forums showing i have absolutely nothing better to do. I love it when trolls can't even troll properly.

peace all this thread is pointless and i am sorry for taking it off topic, just can't help make fun of some people when they make it so easy.

I don't see anything wrong with dat swapping unless it gives you an added advantage.
Graphic dats files is on the end user and does not really affect anyone else.

I dont swap dat files but i do switch music files to custom tunes.
Here is one example of ffxi campaign music mod:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HuZ6yS9-K7o

For FF14 if there is a common audio tune i really don't like then i should be able to change it without breaking any of SE' rules since it doesnt really give me an advantage in game and is only affecting my end.

As has been said previously, dat swapping a treasure coffer or NM with something ginormous is a simple graphical dat swap yet gives the swapper an advantage over other people searching for that coffer/NM.

I know you implied harmless gear swapping, but there are plenty of cases of dat swapping that give a significant gameplay advantage.

If you were going to do that, you probably shouldn't have used your real IP address to create the account in the first place, create most of your posts, etc. Edit: oh, that's rich. Or used their real name in their signup information. If you are banned and you attempt to evade a ban by using a proxy you had best also ensure you are also masking anything else identifiable, and not draw attention to yourself, because I regularily have "problem child" spammers accounts shut off for violations of their various ISP's terms of service. Since Roadrunner has offices in the U.S., theres even a pretty good chance I'll get someone who speaks english.

It's always fun imagining them explaining to mommy why the internet doesn't work anymore...

So yeah. Go ahead, Try me. Make my day.

edit edit: Soo, did you know that proxy you used is one shared with a RMT gilspammer? and that 5 banned accounts are now linked to your account? Sure, I know you probably didn't spam us, but it certanly doesn't look good from a circumstantial evidence standpoint...

The trick to sucessfully using a proxy is to make sure your proxy is functioning correctly during all portions of your attempt to spam a forum with topics. There are other tricks as well that the individual who decided to create the spambot has not yet learned.

Long story short, A total of 550 thread views, but only about 40 or so unique accounts. I can eliminate 36 of you out of hand based on criteria which was used during the signup process which I am not going to get into, and at least 2 others based on normal posting timestamps. Sure you might have got up at 2am to spam us, but I doubt it.

That leaves 1 person. One person who I am 99% certain decided to spam my forum. 1 Person who has a pretty obvious desire to see a certain other person take the fall for this, and 1 person who has until tomorrow to PM me with an explanation and an appology before I take further action. The rest of you can play along in the hunt. Take a look at the word structures, the capitolization, the spelling of certain words. Use of "there / their". etc. I bet you can pick it out as well, without knowing what I know.

Pro tip: Next time pick a proxy that doesn't list an abuse contact number...

I read this post like 5 times and I still can't figure out who he's referring to. Is Thunder that lolsupbro guy who was spamming earlier, or does this have nothing to do with that...

I'm not confused often... but I'm confused. Can I buy a vowel?
