Hawk Anticheat (MC 1.7.10 & 1.8.8) BETA 2008

A free anticheat for legacy versions of Spigot.

  1. An overdue update

    Islandscout
    It's been over 8 months since an update! Thanks for waiting, it's well worth it. A handful of movement false positives have been fixed.

    REWROTE: Fly
    ADDED: Step
    ADDED: permission "hawk.bypassresync" which will stop all rubberbands/resyncs from the anticheat. Some checks will attempt to setback/resync, but there are also parts in the base which will attempt to do that, too. Prior to this update, there was no way to prevent the base from resyncing the player. Very useful for anticheat...

  2. Bugfixes

    Islandscout
    This update allows users to use ProtocolLib if they wish to handle both 1.7 and 1.8 clients. It is a soft dependency, so ProtocolLib is not required unless you are running a server which allows both 1.7 and 1.8 clients to join. Slight changes have occurred between these versions which cause the anticheat to false flag. Using ProtocolLib is recommended so that Hawk can easily detect the player's protocol version and apply the appropriate changes to avoid false flags.

    Happy holidays!...
  3. Movement improvements

    Islandscout
    NOTE: Rewritten most of the Speed check.
    NOTE: Improved error messages.
    NOTE: FightSpeedConsistency is now disabled by default.
    NOTE: FightHitbox check (disabled by default) can no longer cancel. The direction used for comparison is now retrieved from the move after the attack, thus it is not possible to cancel the attack. This has been done to improve checking accuracy.
    NOTE: Renamed FightDirectionApprox to EntityInteractDirection
    NOTE: Renamed FightReachApprox to EntityInteractReach
    FIXED:...

    NOTE: Improved Strafe check. (This is still disabled by default)

    Now that I'm in college, development will be slower. I'm working hard to rewrite a few movement checks; hang on there!
