I wonder if this would trigger a VAC ban? --Holtt 12:41, 24 Jan 2006 (PST)

Highly likely if you ask me, for GoldSrc at least. --TomEdwards 12:56, 24 Jan 2006 (PST)
I assume it would, if they look for things in the middle of the game and the OpenGL engine. In any case, this program actually looks pretty cool. --AndrewNeo 16:51, 25 Jan 2006 (PST)
I installed the program and the such. It wouldn't work with Half-Life 2 (it looks at OpenGL, HL2 is DirectX) and yes, assuming that Valve checks for non-standard OpenGL DLLs, you would get banned by VAC. You have to use a different OpenGL DLL to get the interceptor to work. --AndrewNeo 13:03, 30 Jan 2006 (PST)
I doubt it. Valve says VAC never produces false positives. I believe they make it check for specific programs in memory that are known to be cheats. --DBN 22:53, 12 Sep 2007 (PDT)
Hahahaha! If they said that, then Valve is lying. I know of a few people who got VAC banned for running Source games under Wine, a compatibility layer that lets Windows apps run on Linux. I think Wine's whitelisted nowadays, but it's possible that someone at Valve could jump the gun and ban you, and they can't undo that. Basically, if you're using this, play offline. And if you have to be online for some reason, for god's sake, don't go on a VAC server. Lx45803 04:39, 2 October 2009 (UTC)
