    Could someone please sticky this?

    I asked Solver, but he appears to be offline.

        Well, the CC thing is a CGN effort, but the link can be added.

                  Here's a quick solution: Play at the same time as your friend(s?) with simultaneous moves on instead of playing tedious PBEM games.

                  Seriously speaking, has anyone ever found any AC cheats/hacks which you can annoy other players with while you're multiplaying?

                    Some known cheats can be executed in simultaneous-turns multiplayer, including at least one game-breaking bug.

                      Solution: play with players you trust

                      There are people that know my login here\elsewhere, because i trust them enough not to abuse it...if you dont have people even halfway like that, expect cheating to be a PITA. If im playing in a game with herc\laz\senethro\etc i wont even bother looking at them to check cheating, nor even think anything other than skill when they succeed.

                      SMAC PBEM has had maybe 1 cheater per year. Thats amazing even in percentages compared to most other places.and even then the cheaters were very obvious BEFORE getting busted
