Played a long game with horrible lag. We are at 32:46 of game time which probably took 90 minutes of real time. The whole other team revolts when we are finally in our last laggy push. They must use of most of their resources and then one player on the other team goes unresponsive. The timer ticks down to 1 second and remains there where it is at right now. There are only 2 players left in the game. Me and the freeze hacker I assume. It really is silly what people will go out of their way to do for a game.

I did email ES and sent screen shots. Hopefully it'll make a difference.

Re: screen shots -- My game won't save screenshots. I have to use print screen and paste into paint. Anyone have an idea why that might be?

z0mg! This is a hack? I've had it happen to me before. I thought it was just AoEIII glitching out hard so I didn't take a SS. I did put the guy on my pest list though cause I thought he was just a hardcore lagger.

Exactly the same happened to me not so long ago, I imagined the enemy had done it on purpose since we were winning, I just didn't know how and got confused with drop trickling or something like that. It didn't cross my mind to take print screens, or even report it.

Is it also a hack when the drop screen pops up and goes away over and over real fast?

The blinking screen usually results in the drop trick where the player who is drop tricking eventually loses connection but reports a win back to ESO.

Incidentally, I'm still in the Freeze Hack game. My computer has nothing better to do right now so it can sit there all night.

I dont really think this was worth a new topic... There would be dozen posts every day if everyone would post new topic everytime they get freezehacked.

I was really posting to find out if anyone might know why I can't take screen shots.

What is the proper method for screen shots? Which key?

The shots are supposed to automatically get saved in C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\My Documents\My Games\Age of Empires 3\Screenshots

It must have worked at one point because I have 10 files named screen1.jpg - screen10.jpg

Is there a 10 file limit for screen shots so I need to delete those?

The blinking screen can happen for legitimate reasons too, when the player has connection problems i assume.

How would someone make the screen stop at 1 second and stay there?
It's never happened to me.

I only know for sure i've been droptricked once, because the guy told me he would right before he did it. (Nice of him, isn't it?)
I got the win though.

Blinking screen can happen legitimately, I've seen it happen.
My teammate was sitting next to me and when we ctrl-alt-deleted his game, we were able to break the cycle and continue playing.

Damn, MNBob found my other account!

...

This freeze hack is new to me. Although it shouldn't have the same effect in a 1vs1, so I guess I'm safe

I think that F11 also takes screenshots. You can try it, or deleting the old ones.

I'm in a 1v1 freeze hack as we speak, it does effect 1v1, this spanish guy tried to rush me and I beat him back to his base, pretty good game then when I was about to kill him he froze it on me.

MNbob, was the guys name (No Names)?


EDIT: I just waited him out, lets see if I got the win or not, will update.
