[MUTATOR] MMAdvBan — ban those irritating dynamic IPs

Postby Alex » Thu May 03, 07 9:10 pm

<center>MMAdvBan</center>

Description
This mod enables you to ban users on a different way than normal. This banning method is not based on a client's IP, thus cannot be evaded with dynamic IP's.

Installation
Installation is quite easy. You place the 2 file's, provided below, in your System folder, and open your DeusEx.ini. Find the following part:
Code: Select all
[DeusEx.DeusExGameEngine]

Below that, add the following:

ServerPackages=MMAdvBan110
ServerActors=MMAdvBan110.AdvBanMutator

Then scroll down to the end of your DeusEx.ini, and add this:

[MMAdvBan110.AdvBanMutator]
bKickPlayer=True
BanCommand=

Updating
Open your DeusEx.ini and find
Code: Select all
[MMAdvBan100.AdvBanMutator]

Replace it with
[MMAdvBan110.AdvBanMutator]

Usage
This mod is fairly easy. You go into your server, login as admin, and type the following:
Code: Select all
Mutate AdvBan [PlayerID]

Of course, you replace [PlayerID] with the player ID of the player you want to ban. You can retrieve the list by typing "playerlist".

When a banned player tries to join, he enters the server, and after 2 or 3 seconds, he gets kicked automatically.

Explanation
bKickPlayer means if the player gets kicked when he gets banned. If you set it to false, the player does get banned, but doesn't get kicked.
BanCommand is the command that will be executed on the banned player when he joins. You can add multiple commands, by adding a | symbol between them. Do mind: Some commands are executed faster, causing the other commands to be disabled.
You don't need to fill BanCommand, the player gets kicked automatically when he joins & he is banned.

As soon as you load up the mod, your DeusEx.ini gets filled a bit more, with things like this:
Banned[0]=
BanInfo[0]=

The Banned[] part contains the value that is being compared with, when the player joins, so do not empty this variable, unless you want to unban someone! BanInfo[] contains info about the player you banned. It will contain the IP & PlayerName of the person you banned. It has no further use.

Known Bugs
None so far. Please, report if found asap!

Special Thanks
Nobody. Even though he doesn't know he helped with this, he did, quite a while ago.
DJ. The bastard who kept asking for the administrator password. The bastard who got banned as the first with this mod.

Updates
110: Fixed a small bug & now it also logs the ban hash in the server-console, so you can ban a player when he isn't in the server.

A interested idea. What parameter does this use to ban, instead of the I.P.?

Hard to explain. It's an UC based variable, which doesn't seem to change [& is unique per computer]. But I don't want to make it public, in case someone suddenly finds a way to change it.

Just a question, what happens if a player resets their ip but not the last digits change but the whole range, does it still kick that player?

ste will love this on his server, soon nobody will play there besides him and his favourite non-cheating players :D


On the other hand, with dejavu gone, nobody who gets banned from ste's will feel like being banned from dxmp, so screw bad admins :D

Only nobeaters got banned from Ste's for being hotheaded or being a prick.Although, Ste sure did like to ban people for haxing.I've been banned countless times for "impossible shots" and having "unlimited health".

Id rather try dx reinstall instead of router reset :P Doubt that would work either.

Great job Alex, this puts players like VincentMCDOOM to past and adds an element of responsibility.
Something tells me soviet wont like it either.

As I got banned for the use of a spydrone :D

This banning method isn't per IP. It's not IP-based at all. So resetting your router has no effect ;)

Justice, finally. -_- I got pretty sick of me being about the only one affected by bans, the rest would just change their IP and play on.

Good riddance :]

Alex, I'm not sure if its a transcript error or you've uploaded a previous version, but the mutator doesn't work with the command lines stated in the readme you've provided - for now, I'm running with my serverpackages set as MMAdvBan100 as opposed to MMAdvBan100B.

Heh, thanks, I corrected it. MMAdvBan100B was the beta test mod. It's the exact same as the normal mod, just used it for the public.

Hehe, thanks ^_^

Update: Added the .int file as download aswell. Just place it in your System folder & you will have a sub-menu in your Advanced Options (When hosting a server) where you can configure MMAdvBan.

Lol

Hey, when you make comments like that, you give me reason to.
Don't make me angry if anything and accept your ban like a man and instead of giving people reasons for it, just behave
