I was playing today with the strategy of sending Special Forces to jam the enemy's Anti-aircraft batteries, and defending my territory with helicopters. But guess what? The jamming didn't work. The white lights appeared and it said "jammed" in red in the Anti-aircraft info box, but they still tore apart my helicopters. Does anybody know why this is? Is it a bug? I'm really, really pissed off. I want to hit something. DAMN IT. DAMN IT.

EDIT: UUUUUUUOOO! I solved it. Turns out that in rules.xml, it says "PROB_50%", so there is only a fifty percent probability that Radar Jam will work. Since I want it to be 100% sure, I changed it. But this poses the question: in multiplayer games, are players able to cheat this way? Can they set their buildings to produce everything automatically, for example? I want to play online with human opponents some day, and I want to play out my strategy of jamming Anti-Aircraft without being accused of cheating.

The most important rule in playing multiplayer is that everybody uses the same version, which includes identical files. Fudgers and cheats are usually quickly found and and scorned, unless all players agree to the changes.

I usually do multiplayer on a Vanilla setting, and have a separate folder with my tweaked versions for own use.

Yeah, but that's just it, how are cheaters caugth? It's not like they type a cheat code in-game; we are talking about modified files in the PC. How can anybody know what the files in another person's computer read?

Usually with multiplayer the computers read each other as they pair up- any discrepancies screw things up, like one side having nuclear missiles at a fifty percent discount, or extra starting resources.

otherwise, when you start, and see the other guy has much much more, you know something is not right.

Most cheaters hit console commands in-game, is my experience.
