iSRO/SilkroadR Status Update
For almost a month now, players have been getting banned if their account does not have VIP status. The only difference between a VIP account and non-VIP account, in terms of “bot detection”, is X-Trap packets. VIP accounts do not receive them (no ban) while non-VIP accounts do (ban).
Because X-Trap appears to be broken (or maybe it’s working as intended?), players logging in without a bot are being banned. We do not know if this is intentional or a bug. Joymax has asked players to upload an error log file to the Q & A ticket system when a ban is reported. This file will not exist because the bans are being caused by X-Trap and not the new clientless detection added to each teleport.
What does this mean?
- Buy enough Silk on each of your accounts to achieve VIP Bronze status, or be banned. VIP Iron does not seem to be enough. If it’s intentional, I’m sure they want me to tell you to buy Silk.
- Aeolus is either unaffected by this or bans are not being enforced. This is the only server that is full and takes time to login to.
