    # Video Showcase

    # Machine Learning
    Matrix has a machine learning KillAura check, it can automatically collect combat data and pre-process it, and then, based on these data, we analyze whether players are cheating or not. You can find a file which named "machine_learning.yml" in the plugin folder, it's a file which saved some pre-trained patterns, also, the plugin can automatically update that file when we release an update for it. Unfortunately, you can't train your own pattern, because it may cause false positives.
    I used the k-NN algorithm to cluster player combat data. Under the data visualization tool, they are distinguished. The orange dot indicates the cheating player, and the blue dot indicates the legit player. Due to the dimension reduction relationship, It’s not good in data visualization, but he’s great in actual performance!

    Is it? Can you not update so frequently? I think that updating you like this will cause us serious dissatisfaction! I think this is not good! Because we don't have that much time to restart our servers one by one to update anti-cheat! I think you should make a big update, not every small update is released, you may wish to try this, assuming you have a fatal problem, then you can publish directly, because that will cause a big problem; Fatal problem, I think you can postpone the release and release it with other minor issues. Isn't it better? I look back almost every week to see updates.

    Honestly the best free anti-cheat solution I've tried out of all that is compatible with 1.14. The discord helps me tremendously to stay in the loop on any bugs being worked on, or features I didn't initially understand. It is very accurate for being free! With that said After 2 months of near-perfect use I am upgrading to the premium which is very cheap imo and is supposed to be even more accurate and offer extra checks etc. genuine 10/10 it has been a long time since there has been an anti-cheat that met the standards of the general public! Major props to the dev!

    Just a wonderful plugin! Blocks almost all of the cheats! It's wonderful! But there are 2/3 drawbacks:
    1. Due to a large number of advanced checks, the CPS server crashes. This is very, very much hinders some projects, because of what you have to choose other ways to protect. Please, optimize it, or make a selection in the config: priority to the protection of priority on optimization.
    2. Protection from XRay, account for use together with orebfuscator or reconcile, tolerating players players with this, Ah or same asking play adminisratsiyu days.
    Also, this is a rare problem, but players with a large ping [more than 100ms, but these are still decent + depends on the servers, I have 2 servers with a big difference in the ping of players in the game Minecraft] there are false positives on Fly, which greatly infuriates them.
    I hope this information will be useful to you and you will read this, as I have long been using you Anti-Cheat with a small, but not the smallest online on several servers and for me your plugin is just a wonderful find! I live in Crimea and can't buy paid plugins because of PayPal, but as I now realized, I just saved money. For this I am very grateful to you, and have set forth here all that I have observed.

    Its very good but there are quite a few hacked clients that can bypass a lot of the checks. You can send me a PM and I will provide you with some of the advanced and private hacked clients so you can test it for yourself.
