    Default I cant stop cheating

    is there a way to disable cheats for a campaign because i have a chronic cheating problem the only way i can stop myself is to play a hot seat campaign with a friend.

    Cheating by reloading battles or turns, using the console or stakes or what?

    I know that it is possible to "disable" cheats. Start a hotseat game for 1 player and disable console commands.

    You know that's a chronic problem and if it expands outside the game you should tell your loved ones about it
    You could always wait for the SS 7.0 very hard version that among others things turns off the console

    There should be some kind of counseling available here on the forum.

    The first step is acknowledging you have a problem, so you're on the right track. We're here for you buddy.

    How does a chronic cheating problem feel? Does it feel bad?

    You could be off worse - see, I have a chronic honesty problem. I never even considered using the cheat console a single time. I do not use any obvious exploits (like protecting merchants with forts, killing heretics by surrounding them with armies etc.). Only reload if I am systematically trying something out to better understand game mechanics, but never when really playing campaigns. If someone on the forums considers something completely normal as "cheating" (using stakes, charging with cavalry or the like (you get the weirdest concepts of cheating here)), I will always have a bad conscience when I am doing it. I only play on the highest difficulty levels with BGR IV-E and everything else on (and I feel bad already, since BGR V is out - am I cheating by NOT downloading and using it?).

    All this makes the life of a player soooo hard. I wish I could cheat. But I can't. No. I have to go the hardest way all the time, and boy, it is... hard. Would you want to have my honesty problem? And what of the going-to-the-forums-too-often-to-look-for-new-posts problem? The realizing-how-late-it-got-over-playing-SS 6.4 problem? Arrrgh...

    Yes, we need someone to take care of all this on the forums...

    That's only for very hard

    Also yeah Roachbugg, my pet bunny was a compulsive cheater too, and know thanks to the power of friendship and 2 pills a day he's ok! He even has stopped spitting blood!

    Most of the time.

    Strengelicher being honest is not a problem, it's the solution (?), so you are always applying the solution, even when there is no problem and that's your problem.

    Wait, what?

    Yes, obviously. By not using it you have escaped into a soft, padded, flowery world.

    Hi.... Im Andy and I have a problem... I cheat.

    I just cant help myself, the game is going great then all of the sudden I just type in " add_money 999999999999999999" and BLAM! I win!

    Any help with my addiction would be gladly appreciated.

    But on a serious note if you have a problem cheating just stop man, its not like your brain has some sort of chemical addiction to it, just ing stop.

    Do you people really feel the need to make pointless posts insulting him?

    All you have to do is start a hotseat campaign, select a single faction to play with (You don't even need to have an internet connection) and then check the box that says "Disable/enable console" or something along those lines.

    Or as Paragon said get rid of the key binding.

    What the... reloading isn't cheating, nor is using stakes. Those functions are normal game features, albeit potentially boring to the point of ruining the fun of a campaign but that is another issue. If those things are cheating, so is elaborate rear and flank attacks and skillful cooperation between unit types, stacked pikemen lines, crossbowmen deliberately and wisely placed at the end of a wall and so on and so on... which are things the ai is equally incapable of...

    Why not start a story about your camapign? Perhaps the encouragement from readers will make you feel honour-bound to not cheat?
