This should be a warning: Do NOT use the Hacker Project Cheat tool.

I have the latest Hacker Project Cheat source code and going trough it, in order to improve the game and make it less prone to auto scripts.

Hello everyone,

We've had an issue earlier today and had to roll back the database 8 hours.

As per our Terms of Service, we do not endorse real hacking.
The perpetrator "rockfalcon" has been banned on all the IP's he used.
This is a VIRTUAL SIMULATION. If you can't play fair, you will be banned.

We have determined that he used an exploit to create an SQL injection attack, changing the password to multiple accounts so he can login and do damage.

The security issue has been fixed and everything is back to normal now.

If you think your account may have been compromised by this person, please message me and we will investigate and revert the damage.

Thank you all for your patience in this matter.
5  HP Info Terminal / News & Updates / Game Developer Apprenticeship learning free program on: July 09, 2015, 03:14:52 PM
Hello everyone,

The Game Developer Apprenticeship is a program started by myself, Emilian Tita, the owner of ET Virtual Worlds

I am a freelance Software Engineer in downtown Toronto, and I've been working with PHP from 1998.

The program is intended for all categories of developers who either have a hobby in coding in general, want to learn how to develop games, or just want to learn in a fun way.

ET Virtual Worlds will support the infrastructure needed to run the program: development server cost, repository subscription, developer forums and the online project management software.
You are free to donate to support this program. It is recommended to use the in-game Pledge system for donations.

Requirement: None really. You can work from anywhere, since we will keep in touch via the team software. You will need to have a free Gmail account and a free team software account.
Cost for you: No cost for you, except your time.

Now about the program. While ET Virtual Worlds will provide guidance and the knowledge base, we will not tell you what to do or hold your hand in any way. There will be guides and tutorials available to introduce you to the coding world and best practices. You will interact with the other members of the team, make friends and ask questions. The program will have a broad range, and you will be able to learn coding from the ground up ("Hello World!"), or play with the best software engineers. We will have a no stress policy, code for fun, that means no deadlines, do it on your own time, pick a task and do it if you like and learn, or pass it up if you have difficulties with it, or join with someone else or a team on the task at hand.

Terms and conditions:
 Please be advised, this program is Volunteer only. That means, you will not receive any remuneration. However, what you will gain is knowledge, experience in agile development methodologies, best practice coding techniques, friends. Our object of interest and "play ground" will be to develop and test new updates for Astro Galaxy in a fun way. You can coordinate with any of the other team members to achieve our objectives. Any abuse of the system will be handled by the administrator and may lead to a temporary or full ban. The source code present in the repositories is the property of ET Virtual Worlds. Any attempt to reverse engineer or steal the code is deemed illegal under the copyright.  When joining the program, you will receive a release form, in witch you acknowledge that any work you do under the program will be under the property and copyright of ET Virtual Worlds and you release any rights you may have on the work to ET Virtual Worlds.

There will be a brief period of downtime today, 10-15 minutes today for a server upgrade.

14  HP Info Terminal / News & Updates / Re: 200k pvp points for 60 days Gold on: June 10, 2013, 09:14:47 PM
Oh, I got an idea. You will be able to move the PvP points and pay gradually for the 60 days of Gold. So if you have like 10k points, you can add them towards that goal, and gradually add more until you get the to the 200k mark.

So then, the unused PvP points at the end of a round will automatically be added towards the 200k Gold, and this pool will not reset so you can have xxx/200,000 PvP points spread out across rounds until you reach the mark to get the Gold days.
15  HP Info Terminal / News & Updates / Re: ranking power on: June 10, 2013, 09:08:14 PM
