Warning about Modded Custom Character Stats

Postby Kyonko » Thu Oct 02, 2014 2:09 pm

Already mentioned in the bug reports forum, but figured it would also get more exposure here.

So in this last update, Feng made it so your custom character settings are saved to your computer. The problem is, all it takes is a simple hex editor to edit the values and easily give you ridiculous stats.

What tipped me off was that just right after the release, some guildmates were saying how they were getting Levi or Mikasa stats on their custom characters by using their presets. Feng patched it quickly, but the stat changes still persist.

This just makes it much easier for hackers to abuse. It only took 5 minutes to find where it is and how it is being read. I'm not going to say how its done but just throwing it out there, and considering the fact that other mods require and exe and this doesn't, it wouldn't have taken long for a hacker to figure out.

Feng either needs to do some kind of encryption on the file, or make it so the game checks to see if the stats are valid or not and fix them, which would not be that hard at all and probably the better way. (check to see if they all add up to 400 and no stat is below 75 or above 125)

Fucking great, we need full video proof to have any legit scores.

I know. I was so confused why some of the people early to the update had negative stat points left. I'm really hoping Feng sees this issue and fixes it quickly, otherwise we're going to see a lot of stat modders out there pretty soon. Its a lot easier to do then the whole colored name change.

Oh yeah. But a lot of people are clueless when it comes to kicking people.

Well, I had inform him of this problem. Feng is away for a few days again before any update. A simple check on the stat point should be enough to fix this.

Modded stats have been around since mods started. This isn't anything new. Freedom, Terrorist, Ninja, Citizen: all of them have modded stats. I highly doubt much of anything will change regarding this.

I know, but it affects the Web version. The other way requires a downloaded client which is a different issue. It's better to just let Feng know of all the ways I believe. You'd want to know if there was more than one way for a robber to get into your house.
