    how do you even do that anyways?

  • Re: Buttons in Clan Tag IS NOT ALLOWED

    Really?, wow, I know it's obnoxious and I don't like it but I don't see anything wrong with it as it isn't "tampering" If IW bans cause of this I'll call BS on it, regardless of how i don't like it.

    It is an exploit and is frowned upon? That is pretty stupid considering anyone can do it. Lmao

  • Re: Buttons in Clan Tag IS NOT ALLOWED

    it is not tampering all you do is put in two letters and you have an xbox button and if someone put it as there clan tag not knowing that its tampering you would ban them? that a load of BS

  • Re: Buttons in Clan Tag IS NOT ALLOWED

    They will NOT ban since it is just a glitch that was discovered as any new game is full of, they will simply patch it and move on. They have COD ELITE, boosters, and Map glitches to worry about. Calm down people..

      If it is something as simple as putting two letters in place of one then it MAY not be bannable.

      If they DID modify the gamefiles itself then it is bannable by MS and IW.

       

      They can decide to be very strict on this one and ban people. But for example if the report goes to Microsoft and all they see in the clan tag maker is A to Z and 0 to 9 WITHOUT any pictures then MS will very likely ban the gamertag.

       

      It doesnt ruin anyones game either if they make their Avatar blue. but people do get banned for it immediately from Xbox Live.

       

      Heck for the last month Avatars is all they have been banning for one after the other...

       

      Heres the ban forum on MS. Keep an eye out for the player with whom you reported...

       

      http://forums.xbox.com/xbox_forums/xbox_support/f/41.aspx

       

      Then have a laugh

       

      Remember the 16th prestige exploit ? Mattks already stated that it was a rank exploit and deserved a total reset (or ban?)

       

      thanks for the link Dooly. I cant wait to see the three people I saw today get banned

  • Re: Buttons in Clan Tag IS NOT ALLOWED

    all you do is put ÁA for the a button etc how could you get banned if it is programmed into the clan tag editor? please explain!

    • Re: Buttons in Clan Tag IS NOT ALLOWED
      starbuckfrack

      My example of the alphabet here was an example cause I didnt want to type out all that junk.

       

      But daniel it most likely works like this. The clan tag only REALLY accepts one selection per slot . 4 letters, 4 slots. The actual PROGRAMMING was made to only accept 4 character choices. If you are doing something to force FIVE charaters in there then that would be going beyond what the programmers actually intended.

       

      But that is an example.

       

      Just like programmers didnt intentionally make the rock in Fuel (MW2) to be hidden inside but people found a way to get around it.

       

      I may come up with a better explaination later.

       

      It has been called a glitch, then further down the line it has been called an Easter Egg. The fact is that it is a glitch. Just because one person told another person "dont worry you cant be banned" doesnt mean it is true.

       

      Activision and Microsoft have the final word, regardless of what reason , excuse, story, thoghts you come up with. Activision gives you the rights to use their software. you dont own it. Microsoft gives you the rights to use their services. you agreed to BOTH of those sets of rules.

       

      So is it worth 60 dollars for the new gamertag to play the game again if Activision bans you from the game ?

       

      And what about Microsoft. They own the rights to the code that you used when you type on their "keyboard". so if you use their keyboard to exploit a glitch they will ban you.

       

      Is it worth your Gamertag and all the purchases and points getting tkaen away just because you wanted a blue button in the clan tag ?

  • Re: Buttons in Clan Tag IS NOT ALLOWED

    yeah i need a good explaination because i dont know how

     

    ÁA turns into an xbox button if the creators didnt put it in there on purpose!

    • Re: Buttons in Clan Tag IS NOT ALLOWED
      starbuckfrack

      If the clan tag was able to do that then you would see it on EVERY game that had a clan tag.

       

      Black Ops doesnt have it, neither do the other games.

       

      The only reason the glitch is there is because IW made a mistake on the software.

       

      If Microsoft wanted you to do it then you would see it in problably every game. It would also be in every Gamertag name.

       

      The reason those letter are there are for language issues and making messages that look like pictures in your bio. THAT is the reason Microsoft put it them there.

       

      Look up something called Jtags. They were created by people that hacked their xbox. Once MS updated the Kinect softwware they also updated the glitch that could make Jtags. As well as banned over 1 million people instantly. One of the things Jtags could do was make 'Button Letters". Well guess what all the people that had those wer banned fomr Xbox Live.

      Sure you can STILL make a Jtag, but you can never connect to Xbox Live.

       

      Besides as I said WE dont make the rules . Activision and Microsoft make the rules. go to the Xbox Ban forum and see how many people got banned from XBL just because their Avatar was blue. It wasnt bothering nyone but it still broke the Terms of Service tht you agreed to.

       

      the same glitch that the Xbox had two years ago (jtags) accidentally made it into the code that makes MW3 clan tags. People are exploiting it so they will be banned. If it was allowed then a ton of gamertags awould still have buttons in the Gamertag names.

       

      If you want a technical answer then you would need to learn computer programming. In the days of DOD before widows you could read certain files on the PC by typing README SYSTEM.SYS (for example). when you opened the file the only thing you might see is weird shaped charaters the size of a capital letter. That character actually was a complete function for the PC.

       

      Characters like that letter A' thingy stands for something as well as a letter. You match it with certain kinds of letters than a function is formed. In this case that function is to show (example) a Blue B button that is stored in memory somewhere in the MW3 "Clan Tag Database". What they need to do is shorten that database or something along those lines.

    It's bad enough that you can't alter the names of your teammates to make them smaller on screen like BO without some clown adding coloured buttons to it.

     

    You can guarantee that most of these twats who have done this are under 13, because any mature gamer wouldn't want this crap on his screen.

     

    I hope they ban everyone who's done it because it is an exploit or glitch and as someone already pointed out blue avatars and 16th prestiges get banned and they are the glitches as well.

  • Re: Buttons in Clan Tag IS NOT ALLOWED

    I think it's sad that people are reporting people for such a thing.

     

    Tell the forum in one sentence how a player having such symbols in their clan tag negatively effects your gameplay/ability to play the game and/or how it gives that player an unfair advantage over you?

     

    Funny, I don't think anyone will be able to.

     

    It's actually rather finicky to do, it involves transfer cables and editing software for Xbox and editing gamesave data via USB with the same editing software for PS3. Just because some people want to do that to make their clan tag look different than Activision/Sledgehammer/Infinity Ward intended them to, I don't see why that is of any concern to any other players?

     

    As far as I an concerned, unless it negatively effects my gameplay or gives that person an unfair advantage me in game, then I won't bother reporting them. It does no harm having a different clan tag.

     

    Live and let live.

      If someone kicks your butt in a game 5 times in a row, the only way you can win is to report him for modding

       

      Today there was a guy that had the name (partial) crap on america. In that case I feel I shouldnt have to look at that on my paid service. In this case I pay 5 dollars a month to this club so I shouldnt have to deal with riff raff.

       

      Honestly tho. People who mod their Avatar or whatever will have a 99 percent chance of boosting, glitching, cursing, cheating, generally being a butthole. They need to be taught a lesson. They need to be taught to follow the rules that they agreed to on Xbox Live. Even if it is something as simple as a blue Avatar. If i dont know about it then I dont care. But if I have contact with him I would either say "Have some respect" or try to teach him some respect silently. Something like "Time to grow up now". Its not like we go looking for this kind of thing by going out of our way.

       

      But seriously Paulington, just because some of us do it doesnt mean we need to give you a reason. No offense intended toward you whatsoever. You got your feelings and we have ours.

       

      Anther reason is to help to ban bad Gamers help the economy. 60 dollars more for a new gamertag helps a business grow and provides extras to Microsoft and others related to Xbox Live. that money can be put further into better XBL services and more jobs. That can further help the other businesses in the area when your "donation" helps buy giving the employees raises which then can help them buy lunches at the local eatery. THAT will further pass on to get other customers who can buy better food from the eatery which can make them better workers and so on and so on.

       

      60 dollars for a new Gamertag isnt much but when you ban 100 Gamers in a day that is 6000 dollars helping the economy every single day. The banned people mgiht say screw MS and go out nd buy a PS3 which then helps the Game Store. and so on and so on.

       

      so you are telling me you DONT want a better economy ? Who do you think helped pay for the new Employee Child Care Wing at Microsoft in Redmond Washington last year. It was all the Gamers who spent their time reporting bad GamerTags. and now those children will grow up to be better people because of us !

       

      Let hear it for the new Day Care Center ! Hip Hip Hooray !!!

        What an ignorant claim. By that logic, one could state "People who play Call of Duty: MW3 will have a 99 percent chance of torturing animals, going on public shooting sprees, blowing up hospitals and starting a new nazi regime." Seriously? If you don't like it, fine. But don't just spew this kind of garbage to make your half flacid argument into a debate about more than people messing around with their clan tags. If you don't like it, fine. Let activision and IW know about your dismay and let them deal with it. Honestly, if there's such an outcry about it, they should just hotfix the issue and be done with it. There's no reason to ban anyone unless they have been exploiting/hacking the game for an in-game advantage. Your being annoyed by someone else's clan tag doesn't warrent such a harsh punishment.

    but actually it dousnt take any usb's you just do it on the game

    LOL people people. Look at you complaining about the people who hack clan tags. Reporting for something as harmless as that...

     

    I actually saw something like that on another forum where. It's not as complicated as transfer cables edit game crap. It's just got something with using a usb keyboard and changing languages. like alt codes♥...

     

    Please complain about something else like all guns killing 2x faster than usual. Or getting one shot by the P90. Or knifing someone and not getting the kill. This forum is filled with too much random BS. At least post BS worth BSing about.

  • Re: Buttons in Clan Tag IS NOT ALLOWED

    I've been seeing a lot more of those buttons hacks recently. I've been doing my job on reporting the issue. If I see anyone with any button layout, they're getting reported.

  • Re: Buttons in Clan Tag IS NOT ALLOWED

    there is some proper sad people posting on this forum, you need to stop moaning about something that does not and will not ever ruin your game, they will just ban the caracters used to make it in clan tags, god you people will moan about anythin

  • Re: Buttons in Clan Tag IS NOT ALLOWED

    ive reported everyone using these today, like 10 or 15 of them total. Hope they get banned

  • Re: Buttons in Clan Tag IS NOT ALLOWED

    You guys are idiots...You don't edit/tamper with anything to get these in your name.

     

    For example, button A is just putting "ÁA" (without quotes) into your clantag WHILE INGAME, going back into the clan tag and pressing start, and OMG YOU HAVE A BUTTON IN YOUR CLAN TAG WITHOUT TAMPERING.

     

    If your going to accuse someone of tampering, know what the hell your talking about.

  • Re: Buttons in Clan Tag IS NOT ALLOWED

    Maybe it's a really smart way of finding all the underaged players..?

     

    Quite frankly if I see someone with any of those letters in their name I'll assume they're about twelve years old.

     

    You wouldn't have the letters 'LBRB' in your name but because it looks like the bumper buttons it becomes really cool and you get famous and stuff.

  • Re: Buttons in Clan Tag IS NOT ALLOWED

    Hope the morons who do it get banned l0l

  • Re: Buttons in Clan Tag IS NOT ALLOWED
    avengedyesterday

    This is just like glitching on maps. I don't see how people are pretending it's okay simply because they are able to do it? If i hit a evelator and get ontop of a map is it okay since it's obviously in the game? No, it wasn't ment to happen and i would be exploiting it. It's the exact same thing with the clang tag glitch. Just because it's easy to do doesn't mean it isn't wrong.

    I find it extremely annoying but we have to get our priorities right, there's a bucket load of issues that IW need to address before they get round to this.

  • Re: Buttons in Clan Tag IS NOT ALLOWED

    Infinity Ward has already claimed it's not bannable but they are going to patch it as soon as possible.

  • Re: Buttons in Clan Tag IS NOT ALLOWED

    they said they are allowed to do it but if you get reported they might take action

    ps ive been reporting everyone ive seen with it

  • Re: null

    I can't believe how much time and energy is wasted on this. How is having a button in your clan tag comparable to exploiting a glitch in a map to get an unfair advantage?

     

    I don't have one in my clan tag, but for the love of God, with all the outright pornographic images that people had in their Black Ops emblems that went seemingly unchecked, how is THIS a priority?

     

    "It's ugly to look at."

     

    And who the Heck are YOU? Since when is it someone else's responsibility to make their clan tag appealing to you? As a graphic designer, I can't stand when people type their tags and usernames WiTh AlTeRnAtInG CaPs or "intenshunal mizzpellins," but that doesn't mean they have to change it; I get over it, and move on.

     

    I personally find it less offensive (and light years ahead in maturity) to see someone in the LBRB clan (with accompanying images) than to see people with POOP or A$$ as their clan tag, or gamertags like "BALLZDEEPINYERMOMMA". I don't report these immature fools; I pity them.

     

    Just as I pity those who are sitting here whining about something they don't like that provides absolutely NO in game benefit to the user whatsoever. Grow up, people, and get a freaking life.
