    Well it says in official forums:

    .tbl edits

    The days of playing against people with edited .tbl files are numbered. The developer is currently working on moving certain values serverside, and working with our upcoming anti-hack solution to stop edited files from being usable in the first place. This will also check files in real time, so if someone edits their values after the client has launched it will kick them out regardless.

    my question is.

    will all players that has used like "arrowshower" fix (wich renamed a few files in ur client) be banned, since if i got this right there will be a second server wich runs to check that everything runs correctly. thoose who renamed the files to stop from dcing, will this server check that they don't have all files and then auto bann them?

    since if u rename a file ko client can't load it. and maybe this shows up as missing files to that server check andthen kabooom lvl 83 char or whatever banned for trying to stay online.

    it would be kinda stupied if u ask me thoe i really wanna know


    please post ur thoughts about this

    thats a good question,
    my brother have deleted all *arrow* files,
    i have renamed file (w/e _skill_2 i think), edited the target ring.

    most player will have to reinstall the game.

    because, it wont be a ban for sure, just a block, like xtrap, game wont open (after scan) i guess or pop error [12312321] : missing FileX etc

    my 2 cents

    could easily set it up to replace the changed files (well most mmorpg games it would be easy to)

    "The developer is currently working on moving certain values serverside"
    When the expansion of the new gay moradon came, didnīt they move tbls to clientside ?

    If they fix it then edited files dosnīt help so no reason to bann you i think, but mabye more lagg if itīs all serverside ?

    I'm quite sure their anticheat system will detect what exactly is edited in the folders, and most likely won't be banning anyone for this. Also, by the time they're getting this anticheat system up to date with the tbl edits, they will also most likely have fixed the archer dc problem as well, and everyone can put the skill_magic_2.tbl back into the data folder before they start scanning.

    no tbls were always clientside, just the knowledge of them was very limited, but now so public, also there is a server source code for KO out there, so leaves the game very vulnerable.

    The anti-arrowshower hack that I have seen (ArrowShowerFix.bat) has an uninstall feature (option 3 and 4 from the menu). So if you are worried you can uninstall it until the issue is resolved.

    I saw it yesterday. Not in pk, but in the arena.

    I actually had to reinstall when i got my new HDD so I wont have any issues. But, I would reinstall if you have modified ANY TBL files just to be safe. Be fucked gettin banned for somthing stupid like making a SS look like a CS.

    The truth is you can be banned for editing tbl. I don't think K2 will ban right off the bat but they may implement where you can't log in at all with edited files. Sooner or later they might really ban people though...

    make a noob account level 1, leave it logged in overnight
    if your not banned in the morning, then you are safe.

    I suggest you re-install it, but I think they mentioned if you edited any tbl files that it just simply won't let you in game.... or was it that you will get banned.

    Most novice programmers can get around a MD5 check.

    Knowing K2, its probably not a MD5 check more like a file size check which changing cool down from 60 to 0 would be easy to just inject useless but not harmful to the file data that made it the same size.
