    People here are arguing whether or not it was the court's position to deal with this in the first place, but I think the bigger deal isn't whether or not they should have but this:

    I think the omission of a statement of innocence shouldn't be allowed to be counted as assertion of the opposite.

    Emmm sorry but no. Making "cheats' is not illegal, not in the US, not here not in the moon. The guy was charged for copyright infringement, not even intelectual property but copyright... that means, using assets or lines of code property of R*.
    The "losing money" is not an argument, and god forbids it will ever be (cuz u know, a competitor makes u lose money, should I sue?), it was deemed as the consequence of the copyright infringement and "cheating" was never even mentioned because it holds absolutely no ground in a court (what is and what is not cheating? who decides?, etc).

    To sum up, the correct analogy would be: YOU buy a "fake" Colt sight for your pistol which is in infringement of copyright (not even a patent, just copyright) and YOU kill someone, but you want to punish the sight maker for murder (again, in the case of weapons I'd actually like that being true, but it's not).


    Yup, losing by default sounds terrifying....

    Even more, R* is playing "local" by suing the guy on their preferred court by invoking the EULA of the game.... but copyright can't be infringed "IN" the game, so even the jurisdiction is weird.


    Disclaimer: I never ever played GTAV, not even single player, I don't play online shooters and don't really like them. People calling us "cheaters" sound like little kids (sorry actual kids, u are not at fault here)

    If you take your foot off the accelerator during the air - you lose speed.

    You know what kinda had enough of your BS mate, welcome to ignore

    So what is the point? Wave your hands in the air and rejoice at the fact that Rcokstar have 'stopped' a cheat creator? I mean if it fits with the general opinion of the thread I can happily pat Rcokstar on the back for 'being the good guy here'??

    What exactly IS the point of the thread because it seems any form of descent or questioning that Rcokstar may have to foot some responsability for making their game so easy to cheat in, doesn't hold well with the general opinion?

    Doesn't seem like they ever made any efforts to stop cheating so suing cheat devs won't stop cheating because the game is so easy to screw with. Most online games aren't as full of cheaters as GTA V

    Just me and the cool kidz, sweet.

    It doesn't, in no uncertain terms, make me WRONG!

    Taking your foot off the accelerator in the air makes you lose speed - as dumb as that sounds, it is completely accurate and if you have issues with that, then take it up with:

    Take-Two Interactive Games
    622 Broadway
    New York
    NY 10012

    And, appologise to everyone for misleading them - including me.

    Hopefully EA starts to go after the likes of Artificial Aiming and Engine Owning (who of the worse for rage cheats) This should send hopefully the right signal that Cheat developers are not long safe.

    Good on EPIC and Rockstar for taking a stance now against the scum of the earth, If anything employ them to secure the games from cheaters (Just make sure no back doors are being made).

    Heck even console players are now cheating in FPS games now a days. Something really needs to be done and this is just the first step.
