Brief : This program would be for a game called Counter Strike 1.6. We are a gaming community that use mirc to arrange online competitions. We are in need of an anti cheat application that takes random screenshots of the players screen showing what they see. Taking X amount of screenshots per 10seconds / 1 minute. This program must then encrypt these screenshots into a file in which must be no bigger then 1.2mb.
Describe the problem: We are in need of this program as the game of Counter-Strike is furiously becoming infected with cheaters who are coming to play in our competitions, a program like this will help us reduce the cheaters and keep our competition 100% cheat free.
Describe the solution: As stated in the brief, we need an application in which can take a screenshot of the players screen at random intervals with a timestamp on each screenshot, then at the end of recording the file can be sent to the admins to review. We will also need a viewer to be able to watch the screenshots in a slide-show manner.
Specifics: This application would have to be low in running memory for the operating system, also work on XP/Vista/Windows both Xp 32 and 64 bit. The encrypted file must be made so it cannot be edited in any way and only viewed by the given viewer. We would be hoping for atleast 1-2 screenshots per 10 seconds, but keeping the file size under 1.2 mb would be the aim, an average game goes from between 30 – 50 minutes. Once the program is loaded up, to start recording press the "F9" key and to stop recording press the "F9" key again. Once the recording has started, the program must play a small sound to give the user an alert it has started to record then another sound for in which it stops. The viewer must be able to load up the encrypted file and view each screenshots in a slide-show manner. The screenshots do not have to be great quality, just viewable of the players screen to make sure there are NO cheats loaded.
Here is an example of the program we want, download from here [url removed, login to view] Unzip the program and run the [url removed, login to view], type in a recording name or just press “F9” and it will make an auto file with todays date. Let it run for as long as you like, the longer the more screenshots, then press “F9” again to stop the recording, the file is then saved in the “recordings” folder. To view the screenshots open up the [url removed, login to view] which is located in the NovaPlayer folder, drag the recordings file into the novaplayer and press play. It will cycle through the screen shots.
