Reading your description of that suspicious replay, it might be a leftover record from that period where grass and dirt surfaces were completely broken and have been abused on a bunch of tracks.

If that's the case, I apologize for the false cheat accusation, and will delete the screenshot (waiting for Nadeo to answer).
How could we possibly know that those leftover replays have all been deleted ? If there is one, there might be a lot of others :?: I hope Nadeo has a way to track back to that period, otherwise it is very frustrating to hunt maps only to discover there are replay you will never be able to beat

Hello. I think I found a cheater in the TMOne Speed titlepack on A01.

He has the WR by 0.012 seconds, which seems plausible. But when you drive against the ghost, something weird happens. Here's a video to show you: https://streamable.com/md09ap

At the finish you can clearly see that he is about 0.010-0.015 seconds behind me. But right before the finish his ghost stops moving, while the other ghosts continue.

This is right before the finish: https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/ ... nknown.png
A fraction of a second later: https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/ ... nknown.png

As you can see in the second screenshot, his car's ghost stops about 0.010-0.015 seconds before my ghost hits the finish. About the same difference between my time and his WR. I have a strong suspicion that he is cheating, but as I cannot download the replays, I just have the ghosts and cam7 to vouch for it.

Edit: He is 2nd now as I drove a faster time. So the above screenshots cannot be replicated anymore as my ghost is now different.

Edit: Just to test, I watched other replays in the same way, and the fact that the ghost stops before the finish happens a lot more. So that seems to be an MP-bug, rather than something suspicious: https://streamable.com/fvhb8v So it's just about the fact that his ghost was clearly behind me, but in front of my time.

Edit: Another example: https://streamable.com/n3dar6 Again ghosts stopping before the finish. This really is an MP-bug. But these four ghosts are all finishing in the correct order. The one from my initial report wasn't. Is there a way to download replays?

Edit: Two examples of a combination of ghosts: https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/ ... nknown.png Xtreme555's ghost is the only one lagging behind while having a faster time than the car before him. But again, cannot be sure of anything unless I can see an actual replay, I guess.

Edit: Alright, final edit. Removed the accusation. I found proof that there is a bigger Maniaplanet error lying underneath, I'm afraid. I'll report it in the appropriate subforum.
