We can't link to external sites hosting SMAC here. But is there a law against telling people they can use a search engine to find it for themselves?

Telling people to search is not illegal.

I don't know, but what about to contact the old steambans.com admins (now a dead project too)? They developed their own anticheat plugin. It can be a solution for a new project, until they used some Kigen sourcecode too.
As far as i remember such plugin was never finished at SteamBans.com, we had a plugin (sbsrv for 1.6, sbsrc for source) which asked a database if a connecting steamid is flagged as banned.
If the steamid was flagged as banned, the server owners could decide what to do with the player, through a ConVar (let them play, kick or ban them)

Bans was mabe by players submitting demo of people that should show the use of cheat, and include a sb_status (an encrypeted version of status) in the demo.

When 3 demo review admins, and a management member had all agreed that there was use of a cheat, then the steamid would be marked as banned.


SteamBans.com was shutdown some years ago. As for now SteamBans.com redirects to another project of GameConnect (who was behind SteamBans.con), which you most know; SourceBans.com

Kind Regards

I suspect you are referring to the one on BitBucket. If that is the case, then it is not maintained by SMAC developers.

The difference is added copyright headers and a 3rd party update url.

In conjunction with Updater, the 3rd party update url can be used for malicious purposes, such as to install backdoors onto your server.

I would stay away from it. My recommendation is to use SMAC 0.8.5.1 or 0.8.6.0.

The development was slow long before the notice, I think devs just lost interest... could we spark back some interest with donations?

A Quick look at the current .smx available from the impersonation of smac(smac 0.8.5.2), I didn't find anything suspicious in the .smx(with help from lysis)

I highly doubt Kigen would be stupid enough to distribute a malicious binary.

Also, it's a fork, no one is impersonating anyone, surprisingly that's what happens with open source software.
