You see, Capcom has opted to include an anti-cheat system in their game when launching Iceborne, regardless of whether you've bought the expansion or not. A move surprising most, the rumored excuse behind it were the (reportedly few) sightings of hackers joining a lobby and using a cheating tool to raise a monsters' health even further, causing a group to lose a hunt solely by timeout. Unfortunately, this system isn't without its problems.
For starters, many players found themselves with diminishing frame rates, regardless of whether they were in Iceborne or not. Though I personally had no issues playing the expansion since launch, even while streaming it, I've heard reports of people with weaker machines dealing with frame drops in circumstances where pre-expansion they had none. Soon enough, reports came in saying that the anti-cheat put extra pressure on a system's CPU, causing it to be the performance bottleneck. Capcom recently has made efforts to alleviate this issue, yet the modding scene fully expects them to abolish the Anti-Cheat system entirely at some point.
Monster Hunter Rise brings Hunters to Kamura village to stop an impending horde of monsters from destroying the tranquil settlement. The challenge ahead is daunting, which has led to more than one player looking for a way to get a leg up. However, when it comes to online games, anti-cheat measures are common. So, just how free are hunters to "cheat" in Monster Hunter Rise?
Technically speaking, Monster Hunter Rise doesn't utilize anti-cheat software on PC. It instead makes use of Denuvo Anti-tamper, which is intended to keep the game from being pirated.
With no PvP element, there's not much incentive for Capcom to enforce any sort of anti-cheat. When players utilize cheats in such a fashion, they only really cheat themselves of the experience. That being said, Capcom has been known to issue bans for egregious cheating. So, modders be warned.
Looking at this new release, the biggest new feature is the added support for Easy Anti-Cheat if the game has enabled a Linux module. For those of you unfamiliar with Easy Anti-Cheat, it is the industry-leading anti-cheat service, countering hacking and cheating in multiplayer PC games through the use of hybrid anti-cheat mechanisms. 1e1e36bf2d
