Gameloft working to patch hacked Modern Combat


Gameloft's Modern Combat: Domination draws some heavy inspiration from another big FPS franchise. And ironically, it's facing the same problem as its higher-profile counterpart. Available exclusively via the PSN, Modern Combat has been struggling against cheats and hacks almost immediately since its release -- "a result of the PS3 jailbreak situation," a Gameloft representative told us. A YouTube video demonstrates how the game "is going to get f***d hard," as the poster describes it.

Cheaters are able to enable a few tricks, including smokeless smoke grenades, bullet tracing, the ability to walk through walls and even "God Mode."

A new patch, coming in a few weeks, will attempt to rectify the situation by implementing "anti-hacking protection," in addition to other tweaks. "We are confident this fix will eliminate hacking and add to the player experience on Modern Combat: Domination," the rep added. "The anti-hacking pretty much means that people using a modified code (including cheaters) won't be able to access the game." A full list of changes can be found after the break.

  1. Anti-Hacking protection
  2. 1X invisible collision to prevent players from going out of Factory map.
  3. 1X invisible collision to prevent players from going out of Souk map.
  4. Respawn: prevent face-to-face respawns.
  5. Default time for a game in objective mode set to 3 minutes.
  6. Modification of the range of the knife (distance and angle).
  7. Playtesters added to the credits.
  8. Possibility to change the range of the ping display.
  9. Money accumulates from $2400 instead of $0 in all modes featuring respawn.
  10. Quick fix of 'death on respawn' problems caused by connection issues.
  11. Adjusting of controls sensitivity.
