  • Fall Creators Update brings TruePlay and Game Monitor anti-cheating techniques

When you upgrade your computer to the new Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, you'll also be adding a new anti-cheat feature from Microsoft. This tech is intended as a tool for developers to combat cheating in PC games, according to the company. According to Microsoft, those PC games that will use this feature will run in a "protected process" created to guard games against a common way for cheaters to access game's code. Additionally, a Windows service will monitor gaming sessions for behaviors and manipulations that are common in cheating scenarios.

The code at heart here is known as "TruePlay", which was formally called Game Monitor.

The system collects data throughout, and generates alerts when it suspects some nefarious behaviour. The data that will be collected by this anti-cheat method will only be shared with the developers and only in the case of suspected cheating. Developers can toggle its protection as needed.

So, if developers don't mind you cheating in the single-player part of the game, then they can let it slide. The feature can be toggled on or off by users through Windows Settings, but turning it off won't prevent them from launching protected games.

An interesting change that went unnoticed is the "TruePlay", an anti-cheat feature.

As of right now, only games based on the Universal Windows Platform supports the Windows 10's TruePlay API.

There are a lot of features coming with the Fall Creators Update, including a new photo app, a mixed reality viewer and it brings support for those mixed reality headsets that Microsoft has been working on for a while now.
