Sprite hacks

Postby GMPhalanx » Sun Aug 21, 2011 1:41 pm

Dear Players,

First let me explain what sprite hack is:
Sprite hack is changing the image (sprite) of a certain item (such as a balrog tooth) with a larger image of another item (such as a table). The advantage of this is that the items become visible very easily and because they are larger they are easier to pick up. This is an unfair advantage over other players.

This morning I've performed checks on several people regarding sprite hacks. This has confirmed our previous checks and there is now absolutely NO DOUBT that these people have indeed sprite hacked. The following people have sprite hacked:
ArcherGirl, bigoldman, bockjobber, BOCKLOVE, BuLeGoN, coffeeprincess, GORDA, heha, JessicaSave, JessicaSSSS, Jimmi, Kagura, KG, limaOwns, Liz, Masaki, nightgooser, PeterChan, peterchao, PuffPuff, RKCK, Sara, Screw, Sima, Stax, TaiwaneseWizard, TinGMonArch, xmonica

Even if you yourself did not sprite hack, someone who has access to your account did. This is the risk of sharing your account and we've always warned and advised against it.

Punishment for these players is still being decided. We will announce this later on.

Kind regards,
The GM Team

Dear Players,

We've discussed the punishment and have decided to apply 2 different punishments.
Punishment 1: Player has sprite hacked, but has not obtained any items through the sprite hack. Punishment: 2 weeks ban.
Punishment 2: Player has sprite hacked and obtained items through the sprite hack. Punishment: 4 weeks ban and removal of all sprite hack obtained items. If the sprite hack obtained item is no longer on the character another item of equal value will be removed from the character.

The following players have received punishment 1:
ArcherGirl, bockjobber, BOCKLOVE, BuLeGoN, Kagura, Liz, GORDA, heha, JessicaSave, Jimmi, KG, nightgooser, PeterChan, PuffPuff, RKCK, Sara, Stax, TaiwaneseWizard, TinGMonArch
