Booted As Possible Cheat, WTF?
« on: June 22, 2008, 03:07:52 am »
Today, when I went online on GTR2 for the first time, I entered a server, default BMW GTR, and the track was loading, loaded all the people and when it got to me, it said BOOTED AS POSSIBLE CHEAT  :jawdrop:

What the hell does that mean? I tried other servers, same deal, this is really frustrating because I just am able to go online on GTR2 and I already get an F'ing error :grrr:

Anyone know what it could be? Mabey theres a fix?

I can't remember the cause... I do know it's a setting server side that allows, or disallows this.  I believe it's buggy, and as such we don't use it on our server.

I already updated a long time ago, sucks really, GTL has barely any players online, GTR2, I cant get into any server but ours.

I think GTR2 does it occasionally without any particular reason.. and indeed you can remove that in the server settings.

sorry, fellas, there is no fix for the individual that gets booted, I have been fighting this since my original install, with no mods, or add ons..... And SimBin, hasn't returned a single message in regards to it.

sometimes you're not the cause of the mismatch, a lot of servers have special configuration files that allow mods, so if you try to join them (even with a standard car) you will get a 'booted as possible cheat' error.

for example if you try to join the popular 'pilbierbude' servers you will get a mismatch every time unless you download their configuration files and cars.

some servers also allow custom painted cars, if you dont have those cars and try to join you will have problems too.

a good hint would be to check the webpage of the server you are trying to join to see if there are some special requirements (downloads) to be able to join their server.

if you installed some stuff that modified some original files you will get those problems too, but good mods don't alter original files.

i keep a vanilla install for servers where i booted as a possible cheat, and it seems to do the trick.

has Sh1te R1der  says  if you want to run on public servers you need a pure default install   if you have any addon cars  you will get this error on the public's

specially with the BMW GTR as if your setup for SJ you have a whole mod of them cars lol

so like Sh1te R1der i used to have a default install not a single addon  when i ran the public's and never got the problem again BUT now i don't bother with public servers so that install was made into my P&G install lol

If I know that I have the track and car is correct, I just keep trying to join and usually get in after a bit.
