GTA V Mod LSPDFR’s Site Under DDoS Attack

We’ve been following the development of the popular police themed total conversion mod for GTA V, Los Santos Police Department First Response, rather closely here at GTA 5 Cheats. Arguably the largest and most ambitious mod for GTA V to date, LSPDFR is filled with an immense amount of content, and has a full development team behind it – plus a pretty large community of GTA V players. A similar mod, LCPDFR, was previously released for GTA IV, and was the project which got the team their reputation and following, however their work with GTA V is even more impressive.

lspdfr

Recently the team has been stricken by a number of setbacks delaying the mod’s development and release. With Rockstar’s war on GTA Online cheating, modding the game has become increasingly difficult. The counter-measures introduced in the 1.27 and 1.28 updates not only broke mods entirely for a while, but filled the game files with heaps of dead code to make the work of modders that much more difficult, however the method proved to make the game unplayable even on unmodded instances.

Despite the massive setbacks due to Rockstar’s anti-modding measures, development on LSPDFR continued, and they released newer and newer versions. The mod is currently running the 0.2b beta build, and has enough features for it to be a game in and of itself – and all this can be downloaded legally for free.

Now, at this point I think we can all agree that the team working on LSPDFR is awesome.

Well, someone seems to think otherwise. If you visit the LSPDFR website, you’ll see a little notice at the top of the page.

The community is currently under a sustained flooding attack. Please expect some drops in service whilst we work to mitigate the attacks. Apologies for inconvenience caused.

A Distributed Denial-of-Service (DDoS) attack basically floods the targeted server with significantly more requests than it can handle, essentially crippling the system. The team is still working on clearing up the issue.

Who do you guys think is responsible for the DDoS attack on the LSPDFR website?

This New GTA Online Hack Is a Nightmare

Hacking in GTA Online has kind of been a big topic when it comes to GTA V news lately. Rockstar has been getting progressively more brutal when it comes to dealing with online cheaters, however despite their best efforts, some of the miscreants slip through. We’ve reported quite a while ago the case of one particular GTA Online player who fell victim to the newest method of circumventing cheat detection. Instead of trying to avoid the hack-sniffing protocols to get ticked off, they just shifted the blame. Instead of altering standard game conditions on their own character, the hacker caused mayhem for other players instead. A player’s character began to uncontrollably spawn money, which the hacker could then collect. Since the victim was spawning the hacked money, he was targeted by the automated cheat detectors, not the real hacker. The victim was promptly banned, and the timer of the cheat lobby was bugged, forcing them to turn to actual mods in order to get revenge.

Recently, the creator of a fairly popular gaming podcast documented the next level of this method of hacking. Nick Breckon was hit by a particularly harrowing hack, which had a plethora of effects on his character. It all begins with geysers sprouting under his character after he spawns. Eventually, a perfect clone of his character, with the only difference of having green hair, spawns on his back and rides him piggy-back style. This is where the “fun begins”. At times, his character will spawn a virtually endless stream of money. If he fires a weapon, his character receives corresponding damage. His inseparable clone will sometimes spawn NPC clones who become hositle, as well as random vehicles behind Nick’s character. The whole thing becomes funny after a while, but imagine if this were to happen to you, and suddenly you wouldn’t know what the hell is going on.

Hopefully Rockstar works out how to take down these hackers in GTA Online.

Rockstar Statement About Recent GTA Online Bans

Rockstar has been issuing bans to players who can be linked to the FiveM multiplayer mod project in any way, shape or form. Several of the banned players have since come out and said they did not use the mod, nor were they involved in its creation, instead complaining they only posted in the Reddit discussion related to the project and yet were given the banhammer.

ban

Some of the players who have been banned contacted Rockstar support with their concerns. Whether or not they have been reinstated to GTA Online yet is unknown.

I believe these bans may be in relation to my existance [sic] on the FiveM project. I have not done any reverse engineering or other work on FiveM that may go against the TOS. I hope to resolve this soon.

These bans have been causing quite a storm in the gaming community as more than a handful of players were confused as to why Rockstar wasn’t seemingly resolving the issue. Rockstar has now released a statement about the bans, confirming that they were indeed instigated by the FiveM multiplayer mod project.

The FiveM project is an unauthorized alternate multiplayer service that contains code designed to facilitate piracy. Our policy on such violations of our terms of service are clear, and the individuals involved in its creation have had their Social Club accounts suspended.

Rockstar has gotten significantly more strict when it comes to enforcing the cheat-free atmosphere of GTA Online ever since the  hackers and modders have gotten out of hand (with the release of the PC version). This mass-banning isn’t the first zero-tolerance stance. In patch 1.28, Rockstar has filled the game’s files with heaps of dead code, which was intended to make the work of GTA Online modders significantly more difficult. However, an unintended side-effect of this on un-modded version of the game was that the performance took a nose-dive, even on the most powerful of PCs.

We don’t endorse cheats, hacks or anything else in GTA Online (we’re all about those single player cheats), but on the other hand hope that any innocent players have their bans reversed!

GTA V Car Duplication Glitch Still Works

We recently reported on the the new 1.28 update for GTA V, which contains Ill-Gotten Gains Part II, and also comes with Rockstar’s newest anti-cheat protocol – which we’ve subsequently learned is messing with the game’s performance and also the creation of mods. However despite Rockstar’s anti-cheat methods, not one, but two infinite money glitches have been found since that update rolled out.

panto

In order to work this new glitch needs players to have a garage with nine vehicles in it. Though technically this should work with any garage, the Unit 2 Poplar St. garage seems to be your best bet. One of the nine cars stored should be a Benefactor Panto. Drive the Panto out in-front of your garage, and blow the vehicle up with a grenade while you’re still inside. If you’re doing it right, you should be dead (don’t read that often, do you?)

Once you’ve respawned, just nick any car from the street and phone Mors Mutual Insurance. With the insurance window open, drive back to your garage while holding both the accelerator and the brake. Once you’ve managed to struggle your way back to the garage, get ready for some precision button-pressing, as timing is crucial in this stage, and if you mess this up, all your work up until now was for naught. Once you’re right up at your garage door, release the break and instantly, with lightning speed, press “X” or “A”, depending on your system. If the stolen car rolls into the garage at the same time as the insurance claim is approved, that means you’ve succeeded. Go on over to the Job Lobby, and when you exit the lobby, the duplicated car will be waiting for you right there.

Rockstar tried to crack down on car dupers before, and while they are unrelenting in their hunt for cheaters, some always seem to slip through the cracks. How many of you guys have resorted to glitches to acquire in-game riches?

New Money Glitch Found In GTA V

Despite Rockstar’s best efforts to root out cheating from GTA Online by any means necessary, it seems a new infinite-money exploit was found in the game that the recent 1.28 update failed to fix. Don’t expect this exploit to work for long though, as you know how Rockstar is with these kinds of things, and people who are caught profiting off this exploit will most likely face bans (and rightly so!).

You’ll need to put quite a bit of effort into making use of this exploit, though. The first step is winning 50 rounds of Last Team Standing. This is no small feat, however the greedier players might band together to boost each other to the required victory count. Once you’ve hit 50 victories, you’ll get the achievement “Still Standing”, rewarding you with special chrome rims for your SUVs.

Once the reward is unlocked, you’ll need to look for a specific vehicle. Rusty Karin Rebels are what you need, and around 7 will do for the purposes of this exploit. Roll on over to Los Santos Customs, and navigate to “wheels”, select the “SUV” section and then the “VIP” section, and add the chrome rims to the Rebels.

You’ll notice that the sell price for the rusty Karin Rebels with the shiny rims is a whopping $10,000. Comparing this to the $3,000 purchase price of the rimless vehicle, you’ve got yourself a nice hard $7,000 in profits. This method ignores the 45 minute timer, so you can just keep doing it as many times as you fancy, and you’ll rack up quite a bit of cash in no time at all. Be warned though, this method has been making the rounds on the web so the folks over at Rockstar surely know about it, and when they patch it up soon, they’ll track down anyone who used this exploit with the ferocity of a bloodhound.

In that light, please take this post as a warning to resist temptation and not do this… That said though, have you made use of exploits in GTA Online before? If it is a bug that causes an exploit, do you consider it “fair game”, since the dev team is to blame?

GTA Online : Fighting Cheats With Cheats

Well this is an odd story. We all know the kind of fanaticism with which Rockstar is eradicating all forms of cheating in GTA Online. They put cheaters in separate lobbies, put anti-modding measures in place even if it affects single player, tracking player activity with a special set of hidden stats, and relying on community reports. However, even so, a few specimens of that very special breed of imbeciles who enjoy not only ruining the game for themselves, but for everyone else as well slip through the cracks sometimes.

cheat

Unfortunately, the virtual watch dogs of Rockstar are not particularly discriminant, and a new method of avoiding the wrath of the ban hammer is on the rise. Some players use a variety of mods which takes effect thorough the character of another player. In the case of Rev Drucifer, a cheater infected his character with a condition in which he spewed cash from every virtual orifice.

I’m in a car with this guy and money bags start raining down. I realize my account is filling up fast, so I jump out of the car…money is shooting out of my character’s [backside]. I’m yelling on the mic for him to stop, [but] he’s not stopping then all of a sudden [he] starts killing everyone in the lobby over and over.

This griefer, as they are called, used one of the recent unholy trinity of GTA Online mods that are more difficult to track. Cheaters either use another character to spawn money, have money literally fall from the sky, or use weapons that fire money as opposed to bullets.

Now, obviously we’re dealing with someone with absolutely no notion of how to be a decent human being here, so Drucifer could yell all he wanted, the guy would not stop. The end result was Drucifer being booted from the lobby and put into a Bad Sport lobby, which is where the misbehaving players are in detention for various amounts of time. But Drucifer’s troubles did not end here.

The Bad Sport lobby’s timer is notoriously glitchy, and fixing a feature used to punish rowdy players isn’t high on Rockstar’s priority list, understandably. Drucifer’s timer kept growing as time passed as opposed to counting down, and after he contacted Rockstar support, they said they can’t help him.

In a last ditch effort, Drucifer sought out a modder to help him.

I shot him a message telling him the situation. He said he’d give it a try but didn’t promise anything. Fifteen minutes later, I was out of Bad Sport.

Granted, we have our happy ending, but the griefer is still out there causing trouble. It seems modding GTA Online isn’t all bad, though.

How do you guys react when you run into a cheater in online multiplayer?

New Infinite Money Glitch for GTA Online

gta-online-patch

The hunt for new glitches is always on, and fans have responded to Rockstar’s patch 1.09 of Grand Theft Auto Online by searching for new ways to earn infinite money. The original infinite money glitch, which caused a great deal of controversy amongst players, was finally eliminated via the new game update, but that hasn’t stopped people from trying again.

This latest version assures players that they can use a new vehicle glitch. When a player gets an insured vehicle impounded, they can have a mechanic send them a new vehicle as soon as they respawn. However, with the proper timing, they can then request their personal vehicle—which the game recognizes as the impounded car. The version that has been impounded will be destroyed, which allows the player to have it replaced, while retaining the version that was brought to them. This effectively duplicates the car, and they can sell the extra to quickly earn money. Step by step instructions are included below.

We’ve heard reports that some players have not been able to make this glitch work, while others have had success. Nevertheless, with the harsh measures Rockstar took to mitigate the consequences from the original infinite money glitch, players should think twice before exploiting the system again.

  1. Grab a vehicle (something expensive would be good) and head to the Los Santos Customs near the centre of the map.
  2. Park close to the LSC and then jump out and start shooting stuff up. The police should arrive, shoot a bit too and then let yourself be killed. This will cause your vehicle to be impounded.
  3. Read this next step in full before proceeding… When you respawn call your Mechanic and request that another vehicle be delivered. As soon as you make the request press Select (PS3) or Back (Xbox 360) and then press up five times only, this should let you select “Request Personal Vehicle” again almost instantly (you need to do it really quickly).
  4. If you do it correctly your last vehicle will be delivered to you and the one in the impound lot will be destroyed.
  5. Now call Mors Mutual Insurance and the same vehicle will also be replaced in your garage. So now drive the vehicle your Mech bought to your garage and replace a (preferably) crappy car. Then get in the car that MM Insurance sent, go to Los Santos Customs and sell it.
  6. Finally, request that your Mechanic bring the other car back (the one that is uninsured/he delivered to you already), and get it fully insured at LSC.
  7. Repeat!
