You can prove a mapper with the help of XGS, a utility which records games. You can download here- http://xwis.net/nuke/html/modul...req=getit&lid=3

This utility only works for RA2, and if you are trying to prove a mapper you need screenshots from the same game.

Activate this utility just before both players have loaded. XGS will record the game in shadow mode- all the neccessary information without the excess baggage of graphics. Replays are saved in C:\Westwood\RA2\Replays and can be veiwed with the Game Spy Veiwer (or whatever it's called :blink: ), which is included in the download
You can veiw each player's scout history with XGS, and you can see all the commands given to the units. So if you see an opponent's tank target one of yours, even though the area has not been scouted, you know it's a maphack.


Try out XGS if you want, and if you need to, ask any questions. :)

You can tell if someone has probably mapped by their stretch, this is when they are not hindered from buliding by black as they can see the whole map. This is normaly seen in the Con pow bar placement. Some stretching is possible but some isnt. Also the Game spy can show you units on attack mode when they havnt scouted or engineers on capture mode

Look at a screenshot from the same game as the replay.
