EA: BF2 server configuration is "hacking"
EA has started <a
href="http://ve3d.ign.com/articles/625/625301p1.html">banning</a> IPs of
privately hosted BF2 demo servers from the Gamespy public server list if
the servers were changed to remove demo-specific time limits and
restrictions on in-game weapons that EA wanted to keep exclusive to
their in house servers. The catch? The changes in question were simple
settings in the server's python server config files that only had to be
uncommented to be used, and there was no EULA or TOS distributed with
the Linux server to violate <a
a user on the EA Games UK public forum</a>.
