    Dude chill. I know I'm not supposed to post in these. But the "hacking" is really called "cheating" where you use a third party program to cheat in a game. I highly doubt that it's illegal in your country. Chill ;)

    Highly unlikely. I would appreciate if you or someone else could link me to some sort of archive of Swiss legislation. Anywho, usually laws apply to hacking into someone's computer or a server. This means that if you were to hack into Chronet itself it would be illegal. Cheating would be very difficult to as the only way to enforce someone being arrested for "cheating in a videogame" (which isn't actually hacking) would be through the terms of service. However the terms of service only states that cheating will result in a ban, therefore the authorities would not have the authority to arrest you for cheating as what you did wasn't exactly legally binding nor is Simple going to try to sue you. As far as I can tell "cheating" is not illegal. Which is what you've been accused of doing even though it is referred to as "hacking" due to the common term of "hacker".
    Here are the definitions of the two words -
    Cheat
    1. 1.
      Act dishonestly or unfairly in order to gain an advantage.
      "she always cheats at cards"
    Hack
    1. 2.
      Gain unauthorized access to data in a system or computer.
    I guarantee you that if you were being accused of "hacking" the ban would be by Simple and he or NFOServers would be taking legal action against you. However you were banned for Cheating. Which to the best of my knowledge is not an offence anywhere except possibly South Korea.

    Hope that helps. I do not believe you committed any crimes nor are you being accused of doing so. So please calm down and explain to your parents that the ban reason means "cheating" which is not a criminal offence as oppose to "hacking" and for them to not worry about it as cheating is not a big deal in the eyes of the law or even the internet. It's simply a taboo and looked down upon.

    Now if you would like to claim that you did not cheat, then I cannot help you except tell you that this is not a criminal offence.

    Regards,
    Loxxy.
