-ACI- is a multi-service organization that provides PunkBuster support and independent services to the gaming community. These services include banlist management based on streamed violations and log data as well as submitted PBSS screenshots. Taking it a step further, we use the data we collect and manage to provide a number of additional unique tools and resources to help our members and the gaming community maintain a clean and fun playing environment.
Players in your server are logged into the -ACI- History Tool, where you can view player accounts and look for links to cheating accounts, reported screenshots, PunkBuster violation kicks, other player names used by the account, and more.
Players in your server found with cheats in their PunkBuster screenshots by our numerous PBSS "trollers" can be banned after being verified with your streamed logs.
Players in your server who are kicked due to bannable PunkBuster violations are immediately added to the -ACI- ban list by -ACI- LiveBans.
After your server has been streaming for 6 weeks, you can apply for Server Owner membership which brings additional tools and forum access.
For both Streaming Admin and Server Owner members we offer -ACI- LiveSecure, -ACI-'s state of the art game server anti-cheat protection service. LiveSecure automatically tracks PB violations, monitors suspicious players with -ACI- LiveWatch, implements ACI MD5/CVAR checks, and enforces bans using a master list of -ACI- and other anti-cheat community bans. Play in your server with confidence that no player is using a banned account. LiveSecure for Streaming Admins includes most of the features of the Server Owner version:
Real-time ban list
LiveBans instant PB Violation bans
LiveWatch active watch list
LiveStats server statistics
LiveSecure server banners
MD5/CVAR anti-cheat checks
If you do not have a server but want to be an active member of the anti-cheat community, you are invited to apply as a Private Member (membership requires an active gaming account in one or more of the games -ACI- supports).
News and other information are displayed below and in our forums. Please register and get to know the community.
The Clan Management System (CMS) is now operational.
The Clan Management System allows clan leaders to manage a list of Streaming Admin, Streaming Members, and Forum Members in a Clan Group. Streaming Admin members in the Clan Group will have access to the LiveSecure Control Panel information for their clan's servers. All Streaming Admin and Streaming Members for a clan should be enrolled in a Clan Group in order to meet their membership participation requirements. Forum Members who will be applying for ACI membership as part of an existing clan should be added to the appropriate Clan Group before submitting their membership application.
Clan Group members are able to remove themselves from the group if desired.
The Clan Management System control panel is located in your forum user profile, under Your Control Panel->Networking->Clan Group:
Creating a New Clan Group
Clan Groups can be created by Streaming Admin members who are not already part of another group. To create a new Clan Group, go to the CMS Control Panel and click Create New Clan Group:
An empty group with a default name will be created:
The forum user who creates the Clan Group becomes the group owner. Only the Clan Group owner can edit or delete the group.
Editing a Clan Group
The Clan Group owner can edit the group to change the Group Name or add and delete Members. To edit a Clan Group, go to the CMS Control Panel to show the Edit Clan Group panel.
Changing the Group Name
To change the Group Name, click Edit to the right of the name to unlock the Group Name field:

Not sure if many here have been keeping tabs on it, but AAPG has been having somewhat regular Opt-In tests. If you've never tried an OptIn I would encourage you to do so. There are a lot of new features, better graphics, a new sound engine and much more. More information can be found here: http://news.americasarmy.com/opt-in-test-4/

ACI is committed to providing our members with the most advanced and comprehensive player research tools available in the anti-cheat community. Today we are again fulfilling that commitment with some major enhancements to the ACI History Tool. These upgrades will give our members access to more complete information when doing player research.
Account History page
There are two new features for the Account History page:
A new Related Accounts section
Cross-game support for the Shared IP Accounts section
The new Related Accounts section is a cross-game list of accounts linked to the player account by means other than IP address. The Link Type column contains one of the following types:
The account is linked though a direct GUID match (BF3/BF4/MOHW), or GUID correspondence (AAPG/AA3).
The account is linked through the LiveSecure BF3/BF4/MOHW to BFH cross-reference. This link is only available if the player has played both sets of games since cross-reference data started being collected (2015-05-21).
The accounts are linked by GUIDs contained in the player's ACI forum profile from membership applications or ban appeals.
The accounts have been manually linked by the ACI BG Staff.
Shared IP Accounts
The Shared IP Accounts section now displays IP address matches through all supported games. A new Game column has been added to the listing to differentiate the accounts. All links are active to their corresponding game databases.
Login Compare page
Cross-game support has been added to the Login Compare page:
