Reports are ways that we have for people that want to make the server a better place. As of now we do not have enough staff to cover all of the lobbies and games. A lot of our staff do not have enough time to elaborate on every ban report as to what we have done. "Thanks" means that we have taken care of the matter. This is due to that fact that we usually do 2-3 pages of reports at a time so we like to go through them fast. Thank you very much for reporting rule breakers. We like our community to take action when they see something that they don't like to make our server a better place.

------------------------------------------------------------

IMPORTANT
  • Do not include your in-game name anywhere in the thread!
  • If your video is over 3 minutes long, we reccomend you include timestamps of where the player is hacking. Time stamps aide moderators to process your report more effectively and efficiently.
  • If you do not include the in-game name(s) of the rule violators, you will have to resubmit your report.
Please Note:
There is a maximum time frame within which we can accept most reports. Should any evidence be too old and there is no valid reason why the report has taken so long to be made, the report may be rejected. Please make reports as soon as possible after the incident to be reported.

If we have any evidence that you were using evidence to attempt to get the user you're reporting to do something (i.e. blackmailing them using the evidence to get them to do something), you may also be banned and the other users punishment may even be overturned. Do not use evidence against users other than to report them.

Unfortunately we will no longer be accepting replay mod proof as valid evidence due to the possibility of the proof being altered or faked.

At this point in time, we will also not be accepting proof recorded while using the first person spectating mode. Please continue to record by normal methods in third person view if you plan on reporting a player breaking our server rules.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, however this is in the best interest of our players and the time they spend on our server.

The Art of Catching Hackers
What is legit and what isn't on the WildXL Server
Back to index

------------------------------------------------------------

Part I - Hacks

Most Common Hacks:
All those hacks are found very often on the server, we’ll only list those we can find, for example Regen Hack is now blocked, therefore we won’t talk about it.

Apparently hack names change sometimes, but we’ll call them by their most common name.

PvP Hacks:

Aimbot:
Literally aimbot will automatically aim at the nearest target. Depending on the quality of the hack, the target can be a living player, a spectator or even entities sometimes.
Aimbot will make the player “headsnap”, meaning that his head will turn from its current aim to the direction of the target instantly. On video you can see the player’s head turn in 1 frame.
Let’s be very clear, 1 frame means 1 frame. If you see the head moving very fast but in more that 1 frame, then it’s not aimbot. On hackers reports be careful, it happens that players edit the video to make it look like the head turned in 1 frame, look at the environment and check if there is no gap in the video when the headsnap occurs.
Sometimes there is only 1 first headsnap and then the aimbot is fluent enough to face directly at the player’s body during the whole fight.
Example of an headsnap :
Example of Aimbot from a player POV :
As you can see here when the target is in close range, the aimbot will aim exactly the same spot on his body until he gets out of reach. At around 50 seconds you can see another player getting closer and the head instantly changing direction to aim at the other target.
Most of the time aimbot hacks are bad quality, a while ago players spectating games were entities, meaning that if you were in spectator mode while watching a hacker, if you were getting close to him, he would aim at you. That was a proof of aimbot, players aiming in the air at invisible spectators, but as I said, now spectators are completely vanished. If moderators had a way to only have the invisibility effect, it would be way easier to find hackers.
ForceField / Kill Aura:
This is probably the most lethal type of hack. It makes you hit all targets in melee range, and this melee range is even extended sometimes (extended reach). A normal weapon range in Minecraft is 3.5 blocks, clients using that sometimes have up to a 4.25 blocks range. Some are automatic and some are combined to Aimbot. Meaning that the player will automatically attack all targets in his range, even if he is afk. If you see a player hitting more than 1 player exactly at the same time, or if you see him hitting his enemy while not aiming at him, that is Kill Aura.
Lag, high ping and misplacement can make it appears like someone is using FF/KA. Basically, if someone enters the melee range of a FF/KA user, he’ll take damage until he is dead or until he gets out of reach if the attack is automatic or if the hacker is constantly clicking.
Autoclick / Macros:
Most common hack of the server for obvious reasons. It’s very hard to spot them.
Due to the fact that some players can actually click very fast or “jitterclick”, a lot of players use this type of hack claiming they are legit.
However there are differences between a legit fast clicker and a bot.
First there is a limit to human clicking speed, jitterclickers are above 10 cps (clicks per second) and some of them can ever reach 20 sometimes. However they do not jitterclick all the time because it hurts at some point, they only do it when they need it. If you follow a player during 10 minutes and you see him having the exact same clicking speed in every fight, even against “noobs”, then the guy is most likely hacking.
If you activate the blood particles it'll be easier to see.
The easiest way to spot autoclickers is to fight them, but hearing them is enough. There is a clear difference between perfection and imperfection. A fast clicker will have a regular click, but not perfectly timed, however an autoclicker will have a dead perfect rhythm, trust me you’ll see the difference.
Also if you hear someone clicking 30-40 or 60+ times per second, no need to tell you that this is not human.
Above 15 cps, the players are using extra keys in general, which is not allowed. So they can click using 2 fingers on 2 different buttons and those 2 different signals will both be registered as left clicking. That’s why you can hear clicks overlapping on this video for example :
Concerning the macro users it’s even harder to spot them. A macro user can for example make it so he’ll instantly click another time after each click, making him double his clicking speed. Of course this is extremely hard to see.
In Paintball you can also use Macros and Autoclick to fire snowballs faster. But you’ll eventually run out of snowballs very fast, so people use the drunk hat to have unlimited snowballs.
It is relatively easy to click faster that the normal shooting speed in Paintball, but no one is crazy enough to do it every game.
Macro can be used to perform many other actions, like block hitting for example, meaning that when someone will left click, it’ll instantly right click after that. (It is easy to block hit legit, so it’s almost impossible to know if someone is block hitting legit or using a macro). Macros are always illegal.
No Knockback:
You do not get knocked by any attack, giving you advantages and disadvantages in PvP. Endermen have a skill giving them from 10% to 90% chances to have no-kb during 5 seconds. The amount of players using no-kb to make it like if they had the skill at max will be huge probably.
Everyone else on the server not receiving knockback is hacking.

Other Hacks:

Fly:
Fly hacks basically make you fly, like in creative. If you see someone who look like flying but in a strange way, check the tab to see if this player is lagging. Lag + Double Jumps makes you fly, it extends the duration of the “double jump effects” and you can control where you go, so everyone watching you think you are flying. (This is an example of a player lagging and using a double jump :
the lag can be even worse and make the player fly horizontally during a few seconds). Fly hack is way more obvious, there is no time limit, players simply fly around, sometimes near the ground to make it look like they are walking.
There is NO game on the server where players can fly, not a single game. If you see anyone flying then he is definitely hacking.
But as I said, Fly hack IS obvious, players fly like in creative.
Glide and Spider:
Glide will make you glide obviously, so you will slowly fall
Example :
Pretty stupid hack imo, considering that players still take all the fall damages when they hit the ground (in a pvp game).
Spider makes you slowly climb on the walls.
Example :
Speed:
It makes you go faster. This hack is very rare now on the server for some reason. Hackers use hot keys sometimes, so they can trigger it whenever they need it and for the time they need it. Sometimes combined with Fly.

Rarer Hacks:

Critical:
This hack makes players do small jumps when hitting other players. For some reason that gives you the ability to land critical hits absolutely all the time, even though critical hits should only be occurring when falling.
Example : https://www.youtube.com/watch?=youtu.be&v=DwCLiwM8rjo
You can see the small jumps
Nuker:
It makes you destroy all the blocks in the set range you have activated on nuker in a square like shape around you
Example:
Fast Placing:
It allows you to place blocks extremely fast (instantly) and on an extended range.
Used sometimes by trolls or players who simply want to block everything around them.
Fast Breaking:
It allows you to break blocks faster by giving you haste.
Bow Aimbot:
It makes you shoot right at your target. Some clients don’t even need to aim.
Example :

Some others aim at the nearest target, which means you’ll see headsnaps : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U4DmmgRkW20
But for some reason this hack is really rare on the server, or at least very hard to detect.
Chest Finder/Trackers/Xray:
Those hacks make you see things on your screens that you are not supposed to see.
Chest finder is tracking the chests.
Player trackers show you the position of players, sometimes with bigger nametags.
X-Ray gives your the ability to find the ore blocks you are looking for.
No Blindness:
No blindness simply removed the blindness effect, so you can do critical hits again, sprint and see without blindness.
Auto Tool:
This hack makes you instantly switch tool when you are punching the appropriate block. If you have a shovel, an axe and a pickaxe in your hotbar you'll instantly switch to the shovel when punching sand for example.

Documenting Abuse
Back to index
For those who are new to reporting abuse or rule-breakers, please note that we will need sufficient evidence to exert any punishment over the rule-breaker. In many cases, people expect a photo to be enough evidence, however that is just not the case. For a simple 'nude skin', or 'spam', it may be sufficient. For sprint hacking, flying, aim bot, and 'derping', it may not always be enough.

So here is a simple, yet educational guide on how to make sure you can report ANYONE at any time. You should make sure your PC/Mac is compatible with the ones you download. In 99.9% of cases, you should be able to run the programs listed below without any issues.

------------------------------------------------------------

Photos vs. Videos

Believe it or not, there are a few reasons photo evidence should not be considered enough for evidence:
  • Evidence that can not be captured in one frame. Sprint hacking for example, self explanatory, huh?
  • *Past or future problems that result/cause the issue. Perhaps you did something to escalate
    the spam or provoke the issue.
Even though this doesn't really exclude the punishment from being handled. Just consider this.

------------------------------------------------------------

Instructions for Windows PCs

Taking Photo Evidence
When taking photos, it is always a good idea to snap your whole client. Don't crop it. To quickly take a photo, locate the PRINT SCREEN / SYSTEMRQ button on your keyboard.

The simplest way to take a photo is to hit F2 on your keyboard.
Hit "flag + r" on your keyboard and type

%appdata%
Find the .minecraft folder, followed by Screenshots. Your image can be uploaded to imgur, or more simply "Upload a File" on your post.

When the F2 is taken by another application, the process gets a little lengthier.

For a laptop, or similar keyboards, you should hit the FN key, followed by the insert/prtsc key!

Are you on Windows 8? To easily take a screenshot, hit your flag and Print Screen button on your keyboard to instantly save the photos to your photos directory (Pictures).

This will copy the entire screen (or screens for multiple monitors) to your clipboard. You'll want to paste the image into paint. Make sure nothing personal is showing, and save it.
Upload it to IMGUR, or more simply "Upload a File" on your post.

Another alternative, and my favorite is to use an external program such as Puush, Lightshot or Gyazo. Why? Because you simply hit a button, and edit the photo. It will upload the image for you and open it in your browser when it is done. I use Lightshot myself, so I'll explain how to use it.


Either hit the icon in your system tray, or push the key bind for TAKE SCREENSHOT. You can edit the image using the toolbars to the right after selecting the areas you want to screenshot. Then select how you want to save the screenshot using the bottom toolbar
(As you can see the button highlighted will upload the screenshot and provide you with a URL for it.)


Don't go overboard on the censor though. Keep your client photo clean of it.
You'll be able to use the image URL to submit it in your post.

When picture evidence just isn't enough.

There are those times where photo evidence just isn't enough. As I tried to make clear earlier; taking video evidence isn't as simple. I'll try to enlighten those concerns away with some tips. First, the programs I would suggest.

The most simplest (that I've used anyways) would be Hypercam 2. Many would suggest other alternatives for better quality, but we are not looking for that. As long as we can tell what is going on-- Hypercam will be just enough for that. It's free, and installs in minutes.

Using the program is simple. Few cautionary tips though.
  • Consider your playing resolution, and where your window will be located.
  • Consider how long you are going to record for. Don't record for too long. That will increase the file size.
  • Don't think you will be able to have us download the video via the attachments. You'll want to upload to YouTube.
  • The larger the file size, the longer it will be uploaded to YouTube.
  • Before you play, ensure the program is open, and is set to record your client. (I'll explain this below)
  • Decide if you will be playing in fullscreen (F11). If so, position the window where you will want it to be when you start recording so you can easily exit FS when you want to record.

Once you open the program, all you need to do to ensure you are recording footage is to select the window (click the button that says Select Window and click Minecraft) and have it run in the background. For first time use, make sure you set the HOT KEYS. Default is F2 (for stop/start), and F3 (for pause). Once you are certain you are watching a hacker, hit your hot key until you feel enough recording has been processed.

You should be able to upload the video to YouTube by uploading the AVI. Go to AVI FILE, hit "Open output folder" for the location of your recording. Some tips for recording videos.
  • Consider the length. Don't make it too big or small.
  • Make sure you are recording your window. The bigger your client is, the bigger the file size would be. I would record in the native resolution. Some people play on FS though.
  • CRUCIALLY IMPORTANT. If you are playing on full screen (f11), MAKE SURE you are out of full screen before recording.
If you are wanting to use another screen recorder that is not Hypercam, you will want to make sure you are recording in AVI. If for some reason, your recorder does not allow that, open up Windows Movie Maker (XP/VISTA), Windows Movie Maker Live (7, and 8).


Hit 'Import' on Movie Maker XP/Vista, or Add videos and photos on Windows Live Movie Maker. Then, publish the video. On Windows Movie Maker, you'll have one extra step.. Go to YouTube, and hit the Upload Video. Select Upload, then you should be done. For those who have no idea what I am talking about, click here to go to the Upload page. Make sure you are signed in though!

For those of us on newer computers, you'll be able to upload the video from Movie Maker itself.


Simple as that, we should have uploaded the video. If for some reason it does not work, just save the movie and upload it that way. Make sure you save it as a Windows Movie format.

------------------------------------------------------------

Instructions for Apple Computers
Taking Photo Evidence
When taking photos, it is always a good idea to snap your whole client. AKA, don't crop it. To quickly take a photo, press the Command+Shift+4 buttons on your keyboard.

After pressing those keys, you will be able to crop anywhere on your screen and take an image of the cropped area. If you would like to take an image of an entire program, simply press the space bar located on your keyboard after pressing Command+Shift+4 and click on the program you wish to take a picture of.


This will copy an image of the selected program to your desktop. Upload it to IMGUR, or more simply "Upload a File" on your post.


When picture evidence just isn't enough.
There are those times where photo evidence just isn't enough. As I tried to make clear earlier; taking video evidence isn't as simple. I'll try to enlighten those concerns away with some tips. First, the programs I would suggest.
The most simplest (that I've used anyways) would be QuickTime Player. Many would suggest other alternatives for better quality, but we are not looking for that. As long as we can tell what is going on-- QuickTime Player will be just enough for that. It's free, and should already be installed on your Mac.
Using the program is simple. Few cautionary tips though.
  • Consider your playing resolution, and where your window will be located.
  • Consider how long you are going to record for. Don't record for too long. That will increase the file size.
  • Don't think you will be able to have us download the video via the attachments. You'll want to upload to YouTube.
  • The larger the file size, the longer it will be uploaded to YouTube.
  • Decide if you will be playing in fullscreen (F11). If so, position the window where you will want it to be when you start recording so you can easily exit FS when you want to record.
To open the program, head over to your applications folder and find QuickTime Player. For quick access, I would suggest dragging it to your dock.

Open the program by clicking the image on your dock, or if you don't want to clutter the dock, simply double click it from the applications folder.

Once the program is opened, you can begin recording by heading over to file, and then clicking new screen recording, or by right clicking the application on the dock, and selecting new screen recording.


Once you have done that, a screen like this will appear.

To start recording, hit the record button (the red circle) and this will appear.

At this point, click and drag your mouse to create a crop area over your minecraft screen.

Click start recording and QuickTime will start recording for you. When you are finished recording the hacker/exploit, hit the stop button and it will save the movie to your desktop.

You should be able to upload the video to YouTube by uploading the file. Do this by opening the video, and then hitting the share and youtube button.

It will ask you for your Youtube details. Enter them, and then proceed to the next screen.

Give your video a title and choose whatever category you want. MAKE SURE YOU CHECK THE MAKE THIS MOVIE PERSONAL BOX. Leave the box unchecked as shown so that everyone can see the video and not just you.

Once done with that, proceed to the next screen and hit share. This will begin the upload to YouTube and should only take 1-5 minutes depending on the size of the video.

After that has been done, congratulate yourself. Proof of the hacker is now up and running on Youtube. Create a thread to report them right here https://wildxl.ga/forums/reports.21/ and be sure to follow the format.
