    - You can do anything with the plugin as long as you comply with GPLv3.
    - If you have any bugs/false positives please report them in the discord (not the review section)
    - There are 100% going to be false positives and bypasses - please report them in the discord and I will do my best to patch them
    - If you want any special support for your server, join the discord and I will see what I can do for you.
    - Not all of this code is mine
    - I originally made this for a PvPKits server so it lacks things such as phase or block checks or things along those lines. I will continue to add these things as time goes on
    - Please keep in mind this is a completely free resource. There are obviously better anti-cheats out there, and I am in no way claiming that this one is the best or better than others. This is meant for server owners who are on a budget and can't spend hundreds of dollars on an anti-cheat but still want to be able to automatically ban cheaters.

      Unsupported spigot and posting stacktraces in reviews is not allowed. Please remove the review.

    Still the only anticheat I'd recommend for 1.7-1.8. If you're running a pvp server and just need basic protection until you can afford a paid alternative, this is your best bet.

    Version: 1.5.1
    this is INSANELY good for a free anticheat. vape could not bypass, and nofall banned within miliseconds.

    Shame this got abandoned. Frep was a great dev but I guess cash (Vulcan) and the Rewrite comes over everything else.

    10/10 Free AntiCheat. If you're looking for a free anti cheat this is hands down the best free one you can find here on Spigot. It has a simplistic GUI so it's great for people who's just starting out with getting an anti cheat. The KillAura checks are a bit iffy though. But if you configure the checks and the auto bans well enough it will detect KillAura a bit better. One thing it does struggle with is scaffold, fly, and sometimes BHop. On LiquidBounce I could NOT bypass with BHop at all. No matter what settings I used. With Sigma5 Jello it's a different story. I was bypassing quite slot. But you have to keep in mind this is free and no anti cheat is perfect. So my final conclusion, is it the best anti cheat? No. Is it the best free anti cheat? Yes, absolutely! It lacks majorly on Strafe and Velocity, though. Assuming you have a dedicated moderator team, your server will be just fine. (After a long period of time I recommend finding a new anti cheat as it seems the developer has abandoned this project. Not 100% sure though.) GET THIS ANTICHEAT IF YOU'RE ON A BUDGET!

      I haven't totally abandoned this project, however I am working on recoding it to be compatible with all versions and include much improved checks. Anyhow, thank you for the review :)

    Very good anti cheat, nothing else does not detect the legitimate and anti recoil aura. He is also throwing an error in the console where he could pass it to you, since the discord does not work.

    In my opinion it's the best free anticheat. My only problem was that it doesn't detect antikb. Ant when I made a ticket the dev responded in 1 minute so yeah good support as well. I would definitely recommend using it!

    Great anti cheat! Free, and the movement bans are almost instant! Good job! But please make the combat checks better.
