Even without cinema mode there are ways to take videos, use your phone you have to, or webcam from your computer. After that compile a list of informarion with attempted proof to back it up, get the person in questions name (of course do not make this public record) and get down their connection how many bars are they running.

When all this is done take the proper precautions to report this person, currently we have zod but as stated he is doing this on HIS TIME, he has also given the name of two others who can assist us. Report the player to sony also and any and all technical support Naughty dog and Sony both. For the time being this Is all we can do now until we are given more support which will take time it Is not simple.

It's simply ridiculous that a MP game in 2013 was made without a feature to report cheaters, there is no going around it.

 

Second what you suggested won't always work since we don't play expecting to see cheaters so most times grabbing your phone or webcam will simply not work by then its too late.

The sad thing is the fact that the hack is here to stay. It most likely can't be stopped due to its nature. Maybe a health, damage and item check when connecting to mp. The hack looks so similar to the old CoD hexidecimal editor hacks, that I feel very discouraged. Without a real player report option and real actions taken, the hackers win. Its not just the actual reporting of hacks. Its the real threat of being perma-banned that keeps them from ruining the game.

If the warden is not watching and not enforcing rules, the inmates will run the asylum.

IMHO the lack of cinema mode in this game is unforgivable!

 

ND should know better by now!

Honestly, I doubt it that someone would bother hex editing TLOU's executable and risk getting his console permabanned by Sony, since CFWs are not allowed on the PSN.

Not to mention that most 12-year old kids don't even know what a hex editor is, lol...

@tap You might be right. I'm just not sure what other way they could affect so many key attributesof the game. If we start seeing guys flying or running 5x faster, I will have no doubt about its origin. And yeah most 12yr olds would struggle with this method. But buying a ready-to-go flash drive would solve that problem.

It could just be a rare glitch, like this one:

Lagswitching is not a glitch though and it needs to be dealt with promptly.

That dreaded (1.00.061) LiveUpdate made lagswitching easier, since now the game is more lenient for players who experience packet loss (artificial or not, there's no way to differentiate it).

There seems to be definitive proof that hackers exist (yes, i've seen the infinite everything video), but I'd be careful with assuming all weird behaviors are hacking.

 

Had a match with some lower level folks just now, one guy i put at least 7 revolver shots into, including one in the head, and he only finally went down with a melee strike.  I figured it was lag, but  I joked with him between matches..."was that just lag or were you hacking?"  no answer, but next match he was on my team.  If he's a hacker, he's hiding it well (3 downs, 5 deaths, ~2000 parts)

Don't get me wrong I am not saying that useing your phone or video camera is the solution period end of story, I'm just saying as of now until a better way is found or created by the developers (although I could agree steps should have been taken before hand to deal with these things, as it is there is not one yet and it takes time to emplant them)

So those things that I have mentioned in my earlier post were only a temporary fix so that we players who are frustrated with these cheats (myself being one such frustrated player) may have the ability to not only mildly vent but attempt to help in the process of having these waste of space cheaters dealt with.

We ran into one of these. He went negative and lost. Most fun match I've ever had. One hit kill/down weapons are the only way to beat one of these people. How do you report people for this btw?
