I saw [TUX]PBOWNSU and [TUX]PENGUIN play last night, but the ban ends on 7/21. Was that supposed to happen?

Probably not.  He might have a dynamic IP, or perhaps somebody else was playing with that name.  When you say you saw them both playing, were they both playing at the same time?

It's possible but it will be a pain in the ass to find, especially if it was Graffiti or OTB or EV1.

Why am I banned  b/c someone else hacked? What kind of logic is that? And jitspoe, why did you make this game open sourced if anyone will get banned if they change anything?

he didnt ban the name he banned the computer, so if your computer hacked then you cant play.
and you can change somethings in the game but you cant change things to give yourself an advantage, thats not fair

Also, Jitspoe didnt make it opensource. If anything, he made it harder for hackers to give themselves advantage by removing the gamex source.

Edit: One more thing: Open source had nothing to do in this case, this are modified textures.

Are you on a shared connection?  My IP logs show you as "PBOWNSU", which is the player who was banned for modified content.

Also, another name to add to the list is "H3LL0W0RLD".  And I discovered that the client executible was modified as well.

To answer your question: I didn't make the game open source.  I built off of another game engine (Quake 2) which was open sourced and legally required me to make this game open sourced.  However, in the interest of keeping things fair, I can't allow people to run around with modified clients.  Since it is open sourced, it's far too easy to just code in any number of cheats, so any modification results in a ban.  I don't have the time to review every little change people might make and ensure no cheating is involved.
