Reign Of Kings

Reign Of Kings

RoK Update Alpha 11
This update contains some major backend changes to help prevent hacking. Servers were wiped with this update, we recommend for community servers to be wiped as well.

We have integrated Easy Anti Cheat (EAC) with the game, and you will be required to install it before running the game. EAC will run in the background after you launch Reign of Kings, when you are done playing, EAC will stop running. We felt it was best to have a major anti-hacking solution on our side while we also work to prevent exploits and hacks on our end. We also included another layer of our own hack prevention in this update aside from EAC. You will now also be required to agree to our EULA before playing the game. We hope everyone understands that we are doing our best to prevent hacking, and we hope some of these solutions help out. We will continue to make this our top priority in the near future.

http://www.easyanticheat.net/

Do not risk hacking/exploiting the game, as this may result in your account being permanently banned through the EAC system. Bans will be delivered in waves, we will not elaborate on the exact timing.

Edit: If you are experiencing error "Please run from Reign of Kings.exe" - please try restarting windows to fix this.

For Community Servers (to stop your players being stuck on downloading characters):
You will need to delete your permission file, don't worry, it will auto-generate when you restart your server. Otherwise users may experience problems with users connecting to your server (stuck on downloading characters). Please clear your permission file. The permission file is located under the Configuration folder next to your ROK.exe.

As with the last update - Due to the current anti-hacking layers, modding of the game is not permitted at this time, this would include language packs or other localization attempts. Please verify the integrity of your game cache and keep your DLLs and game files unmodified to avoid unwanted banning or being added to a ban list. If you are unsure you can verify your game files through steam by selecting "Verify Integrity of Game Cache..." in your game's properties under "Local Files".

If verifying your files does not work, and you keep getting banned for DLL mismatch, delete your local game folder and redownload from steam.
1) Right click your Reign of Kings game in your game list 2) Select "Delete Local Content..."
3) Reinstall


Looking forward to the next week, our main focus will once again be on hack prevention, and also on performance.

♥♥♥♥ yes keep it up! Add VAC maybe too and most if not all hacking will die, people dont want VAC bans on their account, or they would buy another account to hack on which will be making you more money and they will get banned anyway lol.

To the dev team:

After seeing this post I decided and went ahead to buying RoK. You have bad reputation from your previous title but I think we can see you have changed. Please, keep in mind that this game is having a lot of support from the community and the theme is very appealing and since both of these things mean the game can have a very long life cycle I hope that you keep improving it.

Best regards.

Great news!
Serverpirat Apr 10, 2015 @ 10:58am 
@knightmare

Haha you catched the point ! Please load more hacks, little kiddies, and after your Steam ban buy the game again for your tertiary steam account... just to become banned here too for your hacks.

But be assured : Its for a good purpose !

You support the game of the century with your money xD
Jacmac Apr 10, 2015 @ 10:58am 
So I guess private servers will also need a full wipe then?
Knightmare_ Apr 10, 2015 @ 11:00am 
@Jack

Its so true man haha same thing with counter strike and RUST, but whatever they are funding the game over and over......Or hopefully will be if EAC and VAC are implemented and working well.
Serverpirat Apr 10, 2015 @ 11:02am 
@Jacmac

Depends, if you suspect a huge amount of duped items on your server its better to wipe maybe, otherwise you can "let it roll".

CS is a completly different chapter. ROK will be still hacked. The reason is mono. Just get your custom assemblys loaded(stealth) and ♥♥♥♥ the game. They cannt ban by detecting jit-compiled code.
Jacmac Apr 10, 2015 @ 11:14am 
@Linkkk They won't really bother at the client level. It's the server processes that will detect that something is fishey with a client.
freakyfrenzy Apr 10, 2015 @ 11:21am 
Anyone knows any details for the update
Any new stuff or are they focussing purely on anti hack first
Jacmac Apr 10, 2015 @ 11:27am 
Supposedly they are focused on anti-hack stuff for now. Hopefully they are also getting rid of some exploits too.
Serverpirat Apr 10, 2015 @ 11:33am 
Anti Hack is the most important stuff.

Raid balance the second most important.
Ajamz Apr 10, 2015 @ 11:40am 
We can only hope this game gets better and better I know it has a lot more funding than their last game it was a good choice to make a better game. Thank you guys for the update!!
