    They finally did something about the people who were idling on the system. Not sure how it works but if you stay idle for more than 15 minutes you dont earn zSilver.

    I uh...always thought it had that in it hahaha. I mean I never tested it but I guess that's good to stop people from, pardon the pun, gaming the system.

    When I'm on Cortex I feel like I'm on the forums, when I'm on the forums I think I'm on Cortex. I'm so confused! Damn you Razer! (loving the new changes btw)
    I noticed that towards the end of August. I have previous posts proving it. I think it's been registering mouse inputs and keyboard clicks. And yes, I figured all of that out from trying to work the system.
    Fuggetaboutit, it puts the old mode to shame, 4 reals!

    Well they made the anti afk official now. In the paid to play tab in cortex it shows. Idling above 15 minutes in 1 session and ur zSilver wont be counted. You can still game the system. Idle 14 minutes. Then relaunch the game, keep doing that for 5 hours. Its tedious but you can still play the system. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

    This thread is my proof, notice at the end that the OP's problems disappear with a simple re-install after going thru all that trouble shooting. Look at my response on the 19th! :big_grin_:
    He even put up logs to hide his shame! :big_grin_:

    Well its better if I point this out to the guys who coded the system. I always like to find flaws in the system, maybe this will encourage them to find another way to get rid of AFKs all together. It does deter AFKing alot, doesnt finish it off though.

    Do you have to update razer cortex to get zSilver?

    That's what I don't get? Wouldn't it just be better to actually play the game? I would think it would at least be more fun. Not judging anyone, what people do is their own business.

    Not to seem harsh, but just play as much as you can. You dont need to earn 900 zSilver everyday. I mean, unless someone is holding a gun to your head and wants you to farm zSilver.

    Would've been handy, but I only have a hammerhead so.. personally think it's worth 5 mins of typing to have that.

    I feel ya, I don't like playing the 5 hours a day. I won't even earn cause I can't take it. It's too much, that's why I prefer the shorter time to hit 900 method when they have bonus weekends.

    I think allowing 15 minutes between inputs is reasonable. Gaming does still involve watching cut-scenes, sometimes plenty of reading, etc.
    Plus, I'd think having an input monitor not only tracking us every second, possibly turning off earning constantly and then restarting it, wouldn't do the performance boosting intention of cortex much good.

    Rather happy to finally see Dark Cortex make it's arrival!

    Well as of 2 minutes ago I was able to use Razer Synapse to stay idle and farm 76 zSilver without even playing a game. Not saying you should all use this, but just highlighting that even though they tried to solve the AFK issue, their attempts werent that successful. Its not that hard to record a macro that bypasses the keystroke recording.

    On the flipside, do you know how I can disable the dark mode in Cortex. I really like the new theme but I prefer white since its easier to distinguish text for me on a white background cause my monitor has crap brightness levels.
