So I did a bit of digging after lurking about you guys talking about evading bans.
There's apparently 3 things commonly known to the public a byond ban goes through.
First it assigns a UID variable to the client's computer and ONLY the computer. This is so it allows networking through a router apparently. Then it bans your key and your IP address.
Apparently the thing keeping the populace from working their away around it is the UID ban, which nobody knows how it is tied to the computer. But apparently according to that guide it's tied to your Hard Drive's volume ID. What I assume you have to do is swap out volume IDs, create a new account under a proxy IP address and using a fake e-mail.
Alternatively it could be tied to any number of things on your Hard Drive's ID, but that's a bit too simple. There's a risk to changing the volume ID which is why they do it under a VM though, and that's because Hard Drive recognition could fail which is self explanatory.
i don't think bans are tied to the computer
i got permabanned from a server on an account at my old house. i moved, and using a new byond account, i was able to rejoin the servers with no problems with nothing else changed.
What that is, is the variable that is assigned to what is presumably the Hard Drive serial number.
Apparently there are multiple types of bans, and you didn't get what these guys call a "CID" ban:
What's with the sudden obsession with evading bans? I'm not against greifing or anything, but it just seems a bit odd that a ton of people are talking about it now.
Okey, what the fuck is wrong with 10minutemail
If you get too many addresses within a few minutes its supposed to ban your IP for a bit, but for me its banning me WHILE FETCHING DATA, and even though a new IP is used every time it still bans it
what the fuck is this
So this thing finally works
enter username and password
boom byond account
if you get some error about 10minutemail refresh until you get another proxy
i need to add more proxies to this thing, 3 doesnt seem to be enough
either that or i need a better host for disposable emails, preferably with a PHP API since the 10minutemail stuff I use now is just regex
it wont work while i mess with it though
Okey, its now using guerillamail, thanks for the tip about that, their API is great
its really reliable now, it also picks out of 8 proxies now so the BYOND limit on account registration rate per IP should never be reached
For the Cuban Pete, how do you speed up the heating process of the air pump?
I don't know what you mean. Is it taking really long for the temperature in the air pump to get to 970000 degrees for you?
Ehh, try reversing the order, you're doing the opposite of my usual setup. Also you appear to be on goon, so that may be the problem.
It takes around 5 minutes real-time for the air pump to reach full temperature normally, how long have you been waiting?
Sure it's not the air pump?
it's not wrenched into the port in that shot.
If only they had cleaned their hands.
What server did you do a Cuban Pete on _jesterk? And the IP? Maybe it will be easier for me to do it on there.
The Yogscast server, it's on the main page atm.
Just tried the ban evasion technique posted earlier with the DLL swapping method to change the harddrive ID on Gibbed 4 (which I was previously banned from). It unfortunately didn't work.
Anyone remember the old days where you could make bombs that destroy every single tile on the station? I used to make three of them, even space men died.
Man, I managed to change my Hard Disk ID but now OpenVPN wont work
Tried using that DLL spoof as my last hope. Didn't work, I guess I wont be joining the YogsCast server anytime soon
Not sure exacly whats with that DLL, it may be an experimental one I made that ended up giving you the same HW ID every time
I'd encourage anyone to join yogscast right now. like 3 players, not a single admin, griffin potential at 100%.
The only problem I have now is the fact that Byond wont login if I use FreeCap. I had the same problem with OpenVPN, my PC just wont connect.
Most bans arent IP based
If you change account in the middle of a round it will warn the admins about having the same IP though
Heh, logging into Yogcast, I've been here once on an empty server, and all the head jobs are banned as well as the pai job?
Nobody talks either, ran into a random engineer fiddling with the smes's, and he ran off.
Alright, I created a new account and used that DLL. Didn't work.
I then got a program that apparently changes your Hard Disk ID and tried logging in with another new account. It didn't work.
Why am I trying
Wait a minute, Hard Disk Serial =/= Hard Disk ID or is it?
YogsCast is down for me
I tried that, but it didn't work.
You know, everytime I poop I think about this game.
So is the changeling The Blair thing?
