Intel wants to bust Cheaters with hardware Friday, 22.06.2007
IntelThe chipset-developer Intel wants to implement a cheating-prevention system in their chipset, which is able to detect cheaters in multiplayer games. The usual solutions are parallel running software or software that is integrated in the game (like Punkbuster). Intel goes in a different direction and presents at the Research@Intel Day a hardware based solution against cheaters. The system is built in at the North Bridge of the chipset, which monitors the input impulses from mouse, keyboard or other devices and compares them to the actions in the game. If the input commands differ from the game happenings, it is very likely that the player cheated.

Intel mentioned wall hacks and aim bots as examples, which are mostly known from shooters, but the system might be adaptable for similar cheating-tools from the racing genre, like for example Unlimited-NOS.

It can't be said how reliable such a system will be, because the project is still in development. There won't be such chipsets in the near future, but we keep an eye on it's further progression.

NFS PS: Q&A Session finished Saturday, 16.06.2007
NFS Pro Streethe Q&A Session on our partnersite NFSUnlimited is finished and the questions have been sent to the development team of Need for Speed Pro Street. Many questions were collected, but unfortunately not all questions could be used, because they were not about the allowed topics (damage, physics and smoke).

Additionally there were a number of questions about features that have already been revealead, so instead of bugging the developers with this, they're answered by Bojan:


Q: Will the handling of the vehicles feel like NFS Underground, NFS Carbon, or like a simulation game (Forza, Gran Turismo)?
A: Handling is very different to previous NFS games and is definetly more like a simulation (GT or Forza). Driving without assists will be pretty challenging even to a pro in those two games.

Q: Already knowing that they can be repaired with ducttape and what not, how can we fully repair them back to their prestine performance/looks?
A: Yes, it will be possible to repair the car completely, but it will cost more money that using duct tape. It is also said that damage will be a factor, but totalling your car in a race will not cost too much.

Q: Can a car flip over?
A: Of course and I've actually seen it happen!

Q: Hey will NCAA football 08 let you equip your player with towels to hang on there belts? thank you
A: I think you missed the game, the questions are about Need for Speed Pro Street.

Q: Where are the Evos 3 5 7 8, MR, FQ400? And they should really use more japanese cars like the GT Starlet/Glanza, Sylvia sr20vet, GTS Sunny/Pulsar VVl, 20V Levin/Corolla Caldina GTT, Lada........
A: Unfortunatly car list questions are not available this session and I didn't know Lada is a japanese car.

Q: Would there be Car interiors in the game?
A: No, car interiors are not available.



You can find the list of questions that have been sent to EA at NFSUnlimited.

NFS Carbon comes for Mac! Tuesday, 12.06.2007
Electronic Arts announced that Need for Speed Carbon will come for MAC OS X, based on the Cider Engine from TransGaming. Apart from NFS Carbon also Harry Potter the Order of the Phoenix, Madden NFL 08, Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 08, Command & Conquer 3 Tiberium Wars and Battlefield 2142 will be ported to the MAC.

TransGaming is a Canadian-based leader in software-portability. Their Cider-Engine has the big advantage, that video games don't have to be rewritten for the Mac - the engine acts as an interpreter between the game's original code and the Intel Mac.

"Traditionally Mac users had to wait to play the latest blockbuster games," says TransGaming CEO Vikas Gupta. "We're thrilled that TransGaming's Cider engine will dramatically decrease the time it will take to bring EA's hit portfolio of games to a thirsty Mac market."

"Leveraging TransGaming's Cider technology to bring our hit franchises to Mac users is an exciting first step in delivering the video game experience that Mac users deserve," said Scott Cronce, EA vice president. "With the launch of these titles, it truly is the best time to be a Mac gamer."
