Official Anti-Switching Multiplayer Tool

Postby AnthonyBF2 » Thu Jul 28, 2016 1:34 pm

Greetings everyone. If you play SWBF2 in multiplayer in the last year you've probably seen people using a cheat that allows them to switch characters at any time they desire. This cheat is more common in hero assault but is possible in the whole game. This cheat has become rampant in some situations, hero assault mostly, and has on occasion ruined good times. An official patch has been made that prevents this cheat 100% and you can get that patch here. Credits to the patch goes to {VA}Jake and the clan VA in general for creating tons of other awesome SWBF2 server patches in the past.

This tool is intended only for admins who run a PC dedicated v1.1 server. This tool is not made for the client side of the game, server only. When the tool is applied to the server, all players in the server are then prevented from using the cheat.

First you need to start the server and make sure that it is running as normal. Then run the patch tool and activate it. From that point on the server should be protected. If you're hosting a server and playing the game from the same computer you will need to start the server first, start the patch tool and then start your game.

It is recommended that everyone shares this with all of their friends so that anyone who has ran a server or may intend to is prepared with the tool.

See if installing .net framework 4.5 helps.

Thanks for the information. Jake said he's still working on another one, but no idea on when that will happen. If there's a next one, it will support framework 2.0 for Windows XP.

EDIT: We've added a version that should run on Windows XP.
