Got banned after a high profile case between two high ranking squads (TYT, my squad vs Inrev), another player was banned two days before I was for using Nahimic 2.0 as well, they are not looking into this as my ban was handled by a mod which was not notified of the hardware I was using to make me extremely suspect by Inrev with the report they filed, even after telling/showing them what I was using. I have also had multiple claims against me dismissed before that match. Their EULA has nothing against 2nd party hardware, but they are also not acknowledging it, I have talked with support, but are not being helpful and all I get are textbook replies. I have also sent a PM to the mod that personally handled the case, never made it past the delete button. 

If someone higher up from MSI reads this, you need to talk Gaijin, they are alienating anyone with your products with no secondary review after all the facts have been presented.

Why are they banning Nahmic 2.0?

They are calling it a 3rd party software (which it is not) and gives players a distinct advantage of knowing other's positions with out visual and with certain sound mods you can literally tell their location no matter where their at on all, but largest maps. All this due to the sonar feature that works really well, especially if knowledgeable of the maps.

I love that "Sonar" ability, but sad that some feel it is a 3rd party tool as it is not :bonk:

I think Sonar is pretty much an "little" cheating tool as it brings a little advantage. Just IMO.

:bonk: Apparently so, since PUBG also considers it as a cheat as well ~~ On a good note though Nahimic is aware and suggests disabling Sound Tracker
Link to that insight is here - [Sound Tracker Issue]

Retarded part is that anyone with quality headphones can do the same exact thing, not as precise with little practice, but no way to prove it one banned with out having to record everything you do which was problematic with my remaining 100GB (out of a TB SSD, so risking a bit already) of space, even then being in the middle of nowhere with 6Mb (~700KB) internet connection you can't exactly stream to curious people who are calling you a hacker ethier, and good luck telling mod after the fact, even the one that personally banned me just deleted the message I sent explaining Nahimc.

I did get a reply from support, albeit after a few messages, telling what my ban massage said was, and it said "[font="Helvetica Neue",Helvetica,Arial,sans-serif]We may assume that some additional modifications aside from the mentioned software"[/font][/color]

[font="Helvetica Neue",Helvetica,Arial,sans-serif]Love it, they assumed and just banned anyways, after all that money and rare vehicles too.[/font][/color]

[font="Helvetica Neue",Helvetica,Arial,sans-serif]Well Star Citizen is getting polished and with the Persistent Verse (hint, if you want to rake up them credits, now is the time with trading being implemented) up I'm out to play that full time since I'm not obligated to play for TYT anymore.[/font][/color]

With my godlike z370 mobo the onboard sound card had it. That nahimic audio radar is plain cheat for games like PUBG...I disabled on-board audio and got rid of that nahimic junk. Now I am happily playing using my SBz. So I'm not suprised more games starts banning that nahimic thing.

Okay, I found this while trying to look for an answer for a different problem that I was having (and found it alread) but I just had to pip in despite the year since the last post. The OP is full of crap. I have been using Nahimic 2 (not the sound tracker, but the audio enhancers) in War Thunder myself for a long time and I have not been banned. TYT is a known troll squad that frequently uses cheats in the game in question, so I highly doubt he was banned for using Nahimic.

There is absolutely no reason to resurrect a thread that is more than one and a half years old. >>Please read and comply with the Forum Rules.<<
