zBlock 4.4 Public Beta Released

zBlock is a server side plug-in comparable to TOST for those of you with a background in Tactical Ops. It does its best like TOST to narrow down various bugs and glitches that can be avoided by blocking some commands and there variables, in earlier stages it was probably used as a credible form of anti-cheat. However due to it being server side protection it is often (again like TO) easily bypassed, fortunately most leagues and competitions provide there own client side anti cheat which are often more efficient as a primary source for stopping cheats in competitive play.



With that said, zBlock 4.4 even though still in beta stages is I think a major update which will effect competitive play (for us at least) in the future, ironing out some of the more abused bugs and glitches, the key ones being bunny hopping, crouch bugging and super boosting



zBlock developer j3di had the following to say on the zBlock website:

"zBlock 4.4 RC1 is now available for public beta testing. You can download it via "rcon zb_update beta" if you use zBlock 4.3. You will need to use this command twice, once to check for the beta update then again to download, you will then need to restart the server. Auto-Updating from older versions will not work."

  • - Fixed a silent-run exploit
  • - zb_doorfix can only be enabled on tick 85-100 servers

  • - ent_fire blocked even with cheats enabled
  • - Blocked a new server crash/lag command
  • - net_graph 2 is now an illegal value on zBlock servers
  • - fps_max values below 60 are now illegal on zBlock servers (0 is fine)
  • - Cvar scanning intervals slightly reduced
  • - Few small code fixes (none were notable bugs)
