There is this person in my mafia list that has unbelievable stats. Five days ago, s/he had hourly income of 250K+ which by itself was staggering. I game him/her the benefit of the doubt thinking there really could some players who would use large amounts of real money and collect income every five minutes. But now, I notice that income level is 880K. This is astounding, clearly not possible without cheating. Further investigation reveals the presence of two new level 6 night club buildings...in five days!!!

I was seriously considering buying gold at some point in part to support the developers of the game, but now having seen that there are players that are clearly breaking the rules with impunity, I have come to the decision that spending real money in the game is useless.

exhibit A:
450

exhibit B:
451

he just change recently, right ?

Hell, it takes 4+ days just to build a loft. I suppose you could upgrade instantly, but the amount of gold required would be crazy.

I wonder if we have any obscenely rich people in this game like a pro athlete or something that wouldn't think twice about dropping a few grand of really money on it. I think cheating is the safe before, but I wouldn't mind seeing Funzios logs to see if there are really any rich guys out there.

ya. just 5 days. most buildings are level 10. new buildings crop up daily like crazy. defense structures have multiplied at the same time. i wonder why the devs don't put in place integrity check in the program to flag players who level up too fast or build too many buildings in a short period of time.

It is an anomaly for a person to spend tens of thousands of dollars on this game, but obviously not out of the realm of possibility. I suppose if you are rich . . .

this is pretty crazy, and i had some guy show up on my rival list that was making almost 1 million per hour his building were like the ones you screenshot but all level 10, i think these people spent real money, they could be some rich guys that dont care about dropping a few gs on a game might be like pocket change to them. i wouldnt worry to much about buying gold to support the developers there in the top 10 grossing apps in my country you dont get there if you havent already made a few hundred thousand dollars

I saw those guys so often now. only 1 or 2 Richie Rich in this game, not everyone. No one willing to spend ten thousands bucks for an iPhone game since people only need 1 or 2 bucks for 1 top Appstore game.

Man, what make me mad is Funzio can't do anything to those guys. I just see them everyday.

all games have cheaters. I don't complain Funzio can't prevent the game from being cheated/hacked.

But I complain about how Funzio process the cheaters/hackers. Look like nothing been done since the first post about cheater/hacker. All suspected people still playing.

Funzio, just suspend all suspected cheaters/hackers first. Ask them to explain about their abnormal status. Most cheaters/hackers won't explain that because they don't have reason for being so rich.

A simple google search reveals several links to youtube and forums with "how to" instructions for hacking. What irked me most was one youtube video whose caption read "This video is for educational purposes."

If you take the time to read the video description, you would find out that that hack has already been patched. In fact, it is very simple to detect editing of game data files like that, if you attempt to do that now, you probably would get banned instantly.

Take a look at this guys stats again...
He's irrelevant to all of us as all he's doing is building.
Not really atacking anyone so who cares if he cheats just to build a hood?
Also, if you are an active player and carry little or no cash, then he will never affect you, this is the beauty of the game, cheats will never beat active players.

There is one more thing to considder - he may be a dev testing out some of the bigger buildings and looking for bugs?
I can't believe the devs don't play tehir own game and give themselves a boost. Would make sense as the guy dosn't attack many people.

search this forum for hack or cheat. you will have a list of some people who became too strong. They just don't mind to attack too weak people, if you're one of them.

This is CRIME CITY game, not SIM CITY game, people don't hack gold bars, money to build a big city and tell everyone "look, I built a beautiful city". Who cares ? go play SIM CITY.

This is a disgrace if crime city doesn't remove cheaters.

It shows a complete lack of respect to the people who spend hours playing the game correctly in the right manner.

I would be very disappointed to hear(if true) that the developers aren't pursuing this matter, having spend my own real money enjoying this game for people who cheat to not be removed.

Can a mod elaborate please?

As ridiculous as that would see to us normal-income people, we have to accept the likelihood that player simply bought a ton of gold, bought high-priced buildings, upgraded immediately 10 times and bought a bunch of weapons. I mean, look at his/her fights win/loss record. Obviously this happened very quickly but we can't assuming s/he is cheating, because it is possible to do what s/he did in a short amount of time.

However, there are also lots of videos on YouTube showing how to hack this game if you have a jailbroken iPhone.

UPDATE

yesterday stat:
467

today's stat:
466

2 new lvl 5 casinos:
465

2 lvl 8 night clubs (upgrade from lvl 5 in 4 days):
464


Incredulous changes in less than 24 hours:
lvl: 145 ---> 188
hourly income: 1000K ---> 1950K (double!!!)


and to top that off, 760M cash on hand.

i'm inclined to think this guy is a either a developer or a bot.

Look at the date for that youtube video its from august the game has been updated since then to fix that cheat if you have a jailbroke iphone and try to edit the plist now it will make you re download the game you can no longer use that cheat there is no new known cheat for this game since u can no longer hack the plist

no, i don't know his code. besides, i am not convinced he is a hacker. even if he were, a part of me doesn't want him to be banned since i'm fascinated by what he is going to do next.

whats the point of seeing what he is up to next? the most he can have is the max of 2 buiildings at level 10. you cant rob or attack him as his def is 42kish. if he were only 4k, i would keep him 'alive' and playing so i can rob all his lvl 10 lvl buildings and his money! lol

In gaming industry, there is the rule that not allow GM or company employees to play company's multiplayer online games, since they know all secrets, bugs and easily become top players which might cause troubles for company customers (players) and get more complaints from them.

They (players & customers) give you daily bread and butter, you can't kick their asses everyday and continuously ask them for food.

This individual, most certainly is cheating. Even if I thought it was possible he bought so much gold with real cash, nothing can account for completing 9,000 jobs in a 24-48 hour period. I must admit, I am amazed as I thought I played the game a lot, but the time it would take to tap on 9,000 jobs + reload with gold over and over is astonishing.

a funny thing happened today as i tried to visit my billionaire friend:

i can't seem to be able to get to his hood. he is still listed in my friend list, i even got the 100 dollar bonus when i pressed "visit" button, but i was bounced back to my hood. i tried this several times. what does this mean? was he banned from the game? or is the player blocking me access (assuming he's part of the development team)?

It's against our forum rules to post links of other players and accuse them of cheating. If you feel someone is cheating, send an e-mail to crimecity-ios-support@funzio.com with your suspicions and information.
