Now that Steam has liberated us from the icy clutches of GFWL, does anybody know if the new servers are VAC secured or not? Being able to try out different builds and theorycrafting was a pretty big part of my endgame, but I don't want to risk a VAC ban for something trivial.

So has anybody found any information pertaining to the VAC status of the new servers?

  • You could just play offline mode until you are ready to go online with a legit build. – Elise Dec 17 '14 at 0:59
  • Well I usually make these builds with the intent of trying them in pvp (no infinite whatever hacks though because that's just lame). – slow_excellence Dec 17 '14 at 1:03
  • At the moment, no - Not that I've heard of anyway. – aytimothy Dec 17 '14 at 1:12
  • Sounds like you're basically using a save editor of some sorts. I don't see how that would even be detected by any cheat detector (assuming you use realistic stat values) – Elise Dec 17 '14 at 1:17
  • I usually use cheat engine to change memory addresses and hack items/souls into the game. I always keep my items and levels legit, just not the means I acquire them :P – slow_excellence Dec 17 '14 at 1:20

No, it is not VAC secured.

For proof look at the store page. Games that are VAC secured have 'Valve anti-cheat enabled' listed on the right hand side.

Need more proof? Browse the complete list of games that have VAC enable. http://store.steampowered.com/search/?category2=8. Dark Souls is not there.
