Welcome to The Cheat Police. Please bear with us as we rebuild the site. We know there are a lot of issues with the site and we are working on them. Badge lists and front page are the priority. TSA Applications and Updates will be online later. The forums are working.

We are very busy here at TCP. If you have submitted an application for either TSA, or Badge Updates, we will attend to those very soon.

We have several new items on the site to mention.

FIRST, if you look up, you'll see a link for Game Servers. That contains a list of TSA ONLY Game servers. If you would like your server listed, Please contact UXO-VS- via PM to have your server(s) listed.

Next, We are implementing a Support Ticket System. This system will ONLY be accessible by TSAs. This will be our primary communication medium dealing with Badges, servers, etc... Keep in mind, There is no guarantee to response times as we ALL do have personal lives outside of TCP.

Next, We are updating our current forum rules. They will be updated very soon and ALL users MUST accept the new rules to continue using the site.

NEXT, and VERY distressing. We, like other AC communities have been forced to make changes in our policies dealing with Game Server Streaming and Anti-Cheat requirements.


The following List is a list of PB Protected games we will support:

BF 2, 1942, 2142, 3, BC2 & Vietnam / COD: 1, UO, 2, 4, Waw /MoH & Airborne

We will NO LONGER support
AA 2&3 / Rainbow Six / Joint Ops / L4D / CS:S

We will continue to support MOH Foresight and the following games:


The following games MUST be streaming to or OR both:

BF 2, 1942, 2142, 3, BC2 & Vietnam | COD, UO, 2, 4, WaW | MoH & Airborne

The main reasons behind these decisions, is gone. AirdaleOps will ONLY support AA, ACI is only supporting AA3 and BF3, BustedPunks seem to be gone.

We are researching to see if there are other AC communities that are still alive.

We will also be introducing a new Tourney and Ladder System. It seems that most players want to compete in tourneys, so why not? That'ss be launched soon.

We have a 'Rotating Banner System' on the site. If you want your Clan's name out there, PM UXO-VS- the info to post your banner. Instructions for the banner will come in a response.

There are MANY MORE enhancements coming, so keep an eye out for those.

Microsoft says next-gen CPUs will not be supported on Windows 7

  • Microsoft says next-gen CPUs will not be supported on Windows 7

    Windows 10 is off to a very impressive start, but there are still an awful lot of holdouts (including yours truly) who are sticking with the tried-and-true Windows 7. (Windows 8, not so much.) But like it or not, the time is coming when an upgrade won't be an option, because Microsoft says that older versions of Windows not be supported on the coming generations of CPUs.

    Windows and Devices Group Executive Vice President Terry Myerson's recent post on the Windows Blog, entitled “Windows 10 Embracing Silicon Innovation," begins with a note about how well Windows 10 works on Intel's sixth-gen Skylake CPUs. “Compared to Windows 7 PC’s, Skylake when combined with Windows 10, enables up to 30x better graphics and 3x the battery life—with the unmatched security of Credential Guard utilizing silicon supported virtualization,” he wrote.

    Unfortunately for Win7 adherents, the news after that isn't quite so happy. Myerson acknowledged that large numbers of people are still running the older Windows and that transitioning to Windows 10, especially for large-scale businesses, takes time. But he also made it clear that the clock is ticking.

    “Windows 7 was designed nearly 10 years ago before any x86/x64 SOCs existed. For Windows 7 to run on any modern silicon, device drivers and firmware need to emulate Windows 7’s expectations for interrupt processing, bus support, and power states—which is challenging for WiFi, graphics, security, and more,” he continued. “As partners make customizations to legacy device drivers, services, and firmware settings, customers are likely to see regressions with Windows 7 ongoing servicing.”

    Windows 7 will be supported for “security, reliability, and compatibility” on previous-generation CPUs through January 14, 2020, while Windows 8.1 will get the same treatment through January 10, 2023. But “as new silicon generations are introduced, they will require the latest Windows platform at that time for support,” Myerson wrote. As an example, he said that Intel's upcoming Kirby Lake, Qualcomm's 8996, and AMD's Bristol Ridge will only support Windows 10.

    Microsoft will release a list of specific Skylake devices that it will continue to support on Windows 7 and 8.1 next week, to ensure customers can upgrade to new hardware now even if they're not yet prepared to make the move to Windows 10. That list will be maintained until July 17, 2017, after which “the most critical Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 security updates will be addressed for these configurations, and will be released if the update does not risk the reliability or compatibility of the Windows 7/8.1 platform on other devices.”

    Update: The report originally stated that older version of Windows will not run on new generations of CPUs. The actual statement in the blog is the somewhat more ambiguous, "Going forward, as new silicon generations are introduced, they will require the latest Windows platform at that time for support." I've updated the post to reflect that wording.

    Play right, play fair... the way it's meant to be!

    I knew this was coming! For those of you who love building gaming rigs with the newest CPU, will find it heartbreaking to know that you won't be able to use your older OS with the next-gen cpus! How do YOU feel about that?

      Here we go again, the "Windows Monopoly" is migrating to hardware!

        I'm using 8.1 with a shell that's like Windows 7. I think it is okay as I do have issues with some upgrades, drivers, etc. as I'm not a true PC user. Hopefully 10 will fix the massive maintenance that has to be done to make a PC work :| But the worst is having to pay to upgrade programs, that's going to hurt.

        And btw, hello everyone
