    Cheating is fine as long as they only play against other cheaters. Why not just segregate the cheaters and let them have fun?

    Yeah cheating does offer interesting gameplay sometimes but then unintended shit happens and people blame the developer for making a "broken game". I am assuming this is why devs don't make "cheat mode" where all players have infinite everything or whatever.

    My brother had a friend who hacked a scizor with max stats back in the day. To combat the scizor, my bro made a lv100 wobuffet and won.

    Wouldn't be as bad as the wii. Mainly because we got the magic of updates. And even then, barrier to entry is a little higher than wii.

    I'm pretty disappointed that this is front-page news. Why is GBATemp warning people who cheat in online multiplayer games?

    It's an opt in system. When you opt in, you lose rights to complain.

    Frequently they do. I believe Commodore4Eva's later X360 firmwares spoofed the MD5 of the original production versions. With enough skills and knowledge almost any integrity check can be bypassed.

    I've never seen cheaters at all. Private matches are safe to cheat apparently. If everyone is gonna complain they got a cheater, simply download the Nintendo app and report them from there. Kid you not, 1 report = investigation = ban after looking through the evidence. That's all. Nintendo is really serious when they see someone is reported at least once

    md5 collisions are easy.

    sha1 collisions have only been demonstrated when you control the contents of both files.

    Yup, it's a real shame. I friggin' love competitive Mario Kart, but playing it online (with 3DS anyway) is just a recipe for frustration.

    You can't cheat at Smash (or fighting games with similar netcode design) in the conventional sense, it doesn't send data between clients, just button inputs and the server has a hard limit on button inputs it will even let you send so it auto-checks against bullshit command prompts being sent. If you alter your side client to give you "mega range" the other user won't see and the game wouldn't be able to even translate it properly as meaningful.

    You can mod a Smash game and have no impact on the actual online, as was done frequently in Smash4.

    I wasn't actually aware of this, but it makes a lot of sense, now that I think about it.

    Fighting games have to deal with lag-switchers and such which slow button translation and cause desyncs that force the game to end up playing to the 'rules' of the slower player (the lagger). Some netcodes are properly built to account for this to not overly advantage the lagger but its how you can cheat.

    Doesn't require hacking at all, though, just a lag switch on your network.

    Should prove harder for those to cheat who wish to, which is helpful. It's difficult to weed them all out, but it gets annoying when every round has more than one cheaters. It's unplayable at that point. Whether this proves impenetrable or not, it's a step in the right direction.
