According to the details of your ban, you were found to be cheating from the Anticheat and so we’d like to ask if you can share your demos from the previous few games that you were in. You can find these demos in the Userraw/Demos section of your installation. An example is provided below:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2\userraw\demos
Demos come in two parts, a .dm_13 and a .dm_13.json file. BOTH must be uploaded together or the demo wont work. You’ll need to find the files from the game you were banned in which was at [22:51:54 UTC]. You can then upload these here on the forums using an attachment uploader in the full editor and preview section, or upload to another site like Dropbox, GoogleDrive, MEGA etc and link here.
Failure to provide demos will result in your appeal being denied.
Please respond here if you’re having any issues.
i did because im just trying to play and i got banned for “cheating” and i thought it would let me play if i had a clean install, u can clearly tell in any of those i am not cheating, and it is frustrating to be banned on the only server that is active on mw2, i had a VPN going if that can trigger an anticheat but idk what else to tell ya i got iw4x cuz steam is riddled with cheaters, and i want to get away from it
Use of a VPN will not trigger an anti-cheat ban. You will simply be kicked from the server and informed that VPNs are not permitted.
Do you still have the demo files that you deleted? Unfortunately we cannot use demos from other games and servers as evidence against the ban in question. It will need to be the demo for the game in which you were banned.
You were banned at 2022-09-25 22:51:54 UTC (roughly 3 hours ago, as of the time I am posting this message). You will need to convert this to your local timezone and locate the .dm_13 corresponding to this game. You can typically identify the .dm_13 file in File Explorer by finding the .dm_13 file with a “Date modified” time that is just AFTER this timestamp, and a “Date created” time that is BEFORE this timestamp.
If you are unable to supply to demo file for the game that you were banned, and you have no additional evidence supporting your ban appeal for this game (such as an external game recording or live stream VOD), then we will have no other option but to conclude that the ban was legitimate.
