AntiCheat 2.0 Icon

AntiCheat development and support was discontinued September 7th, 2014. The previous page is archived here for reference purposes. Official downloads are still available for use as is the project source code. You must use these at your own risk as I can no longer vouch for their rate of success.

Thanks to everyone who has supported the AntiCheat project. Recently I have resigned my position as BukkitDev Team Lead and have decided to move on from Bukkit development. Unfortunately, this means that I will no longer be actively working on the AntiCheat source code, and as such I have decided to close the project.

The recent blunders and PR disasters of Mojang have made it clear to myself and many others that they have neglected the open source community and allowed us to work nearly full time jobs for the company itself without compensation. I have never asked to be compensated for my work, and in fact I have spent much of my own money and time dedicated to this and other projects (a project which specifically fixes problems with Mojang's server that they could have fixed relatively easily themselves from the internal code). Through my work as BukkitDev Staff I have approved upwards of 15,000 projects and files and reviewed more than 2 gigabytes of raw code to make sure it is free of malicious code and safe for community consumption. I have poured this work into the community not because I expected anything in return but because I love what I do, I have learned so very much, made very good friends, and if I had a chance I would do it again. The degree to which Mojang had a stake in this project's success but did nothing to support it has recently become apparent, and I feel it is a matter of principle that I walk away - not because Bukkit was purchased by them but because they did not tell us about it.

Many thanks to JetBrains who have provided their IntelliJ IDE for development. Thanks to the many contributors to this project who's code helped do good in the community. Thanks to those of you who have provided your support in many different ways to the project: you know who you are, you made my life a lot better and I can't thank you enough for that. I am happy to say that this project has improved people's lives, and I couldn't have ever hoped to say more.

    @Iwitrag: Go

    Yes, it does :)


    For instance, AntiCheat works with mcMMO out of the box because the mcMMO devs have kindly put in place a few "flags" to tell AntiCheat that their program is running, or really rather trick AntiCheat into running properly.

    @HunterGPlays: Go

    Thanks Hunter that's really kind of you. That'd be up to the community and not to me; I haven't heard from anyone about that subject.

    @au2001: Go

    The source code has always and will always be publically available and is linked (in bold) at the top of this page.

    @gravity_low After almost 2,000,000 downloads, you stop that project? That was the best AntiCheat of all bukkit T_T

    And if you definitely abandon this project, please give the source code so that we can update it and have it on our server...

    Thank you for your work over the years, you made a fine plugin. I'm just curious to know if anyone will continue this plugin? I think it's significantly better than the other anti-hack plugins.

    No. Assuming Sponge was even a physical thing with a codebase instead of a loose idea and collection of developers I currently have no plans to continue the project.

    Are you going to port it to Sponge?
