    Is it possible to add anti-cheat to my application?

    Hey,
    My question is: is it possible to add an anti-cheat or any security system, so if the user uses an hack it blocks him from joining an game?
    Thanks.

    We know absolutely nothing about your application so how can we give advise? What do you mean "hack", hack how?

    Well, my application is game launcher, ik that there is alot of security programs but these programs dont support my game.. also in any online game there is hackers that can hack the game so is there anyway to prevent it?

    Turn on the NoHack boolean by setting it true.

    NoHack = True

    Seriously, though. As already stated, it all depends on your application. A 'game launcher' means nothing, but there's nothing to 'hack' in what one would suppose is a game launcher. also a 'game launcher' isn't a 'game'.

    It really isn't clear what you are asking, or it's relevance to VB.

    It sounds like what you're asking for is anti-anti-cheat, because you want to write a game launcher and the game isn't letting you launch it? You won't get much help for that if true.

    But if you want anti-cheat for a game you're writing, you probably will get much more help on a game development-focused forum. There'll be dozens of people there with ideas/implementations, whereas here there's more likely something between 0 and 1.
    This answer is wrong. You should be using TableAdapter and Dictionaries instead.

    Well, that sounds like a distinct probability.

    If you know the exact cheat programs that you want to be blocked you could check if that process is running or not and if it is then you could freeze their account or not allow them to play for a given amount of time or something like that. I know some games use methods like this it might not be the best way but it is effective against a lot of cheaters.

    I meant that as a magnitude of developers, not a probability that one's here.

    It tends to be the kind of thing people brag about, if they've done it.

    I know what you meant, of course, but the way you said it....I just couldn't resist the pun.
