    Full Change Log ->

    • In game admin
    • Customizable commands, three different scopes for the responses and a spell checker/correcter on player names. Take note it's a spell checker not a magic mind reader, it will get some things wrong if you don't provide it enough data.

    Welcome messages
    • Delay on the message when joining, customizable message with no frills and a display time

    Mixed Gamemode (Very experimental, let me know how you go if you want to try it out)
    • Add maps to a list and let procon cycle through them, changing the gamemode if need be.

    [*]Added comments into config files.[*]Added colour variables 1-9 so colour blind people may alter the text colour of the consoles. This won't work globally through out procon, let me know if it should![*]Basic defaults are now saved in "connection_onload.def" not "connection_onload.cfg". The .cfg file is free for users to customize procon with now.

    • Added "procon.protected.config.exec" executes any config in the configs dir.

    • Selectable time for the chat window.
    • Check boxes to enable/disable the events in the chat window. It's a quick hack, like I said I want to spend some time on the chat window if the protocol is updated to include normal in game chat.
    • Separate accounts data into accounts.cfg. I did this then realized it's not exactly what was asked for. Privileges are assigned on a connection-by-connection basis so while the accounts username/password is saved in the accounts.cfg, the privileges will still be saved in the (host)_(port).cfg file.
    • Configs are now saved whenever a change is made, not just on procon shutdown. This helps those that can't shutdown procon cleanly.
    • Variable to alter length of chat/console/plugin output from the default 75.
    • Reconnect on disconnect if automatically login was selected. This was meant to be in from the beginning, oops =P It will attempt a reconnection every 20 seconds. Please let me know if it works properly
    • Admins should now be able to see all yelling occuring by other admins on the layer and from plugins.

    Plugin changes
    • Plugins can now pull account data out of procon, used in the In Game Admin.
    • Plugins can now pull the known map-name-gamemode associations from procon.

    • Fix incorrect label for the gamemode in the top panel
    • Localization fixes
    • Start Procon Layer panel.
    • Some labels/buttons were to small for the german text.
    • Update available text
    • Login panel errors
    • Notification icon menu in the bottom right.
    • Clan tags now show up on kill/death events.
    • Punkbuster command now works in the console regardless of the case of "punkBuster.pb_sv_command".
    • Have multiple connections will now properly compile and load multiple plugins.

    Known Issues
    • Double enable/disable in the plugin menu. Occasionally enabling a plugin will disable then reenable it.
    • Fix double bold text in combo boxes when mouse overing.
    • Team names are incorrect or "Unknown". Now I actually have the game I can do a bit more testing to find out what team numbers and maps match up to a name for the team. More to come on this. ->

    • Implement commands to adjust localized team names per map and per team.
    • Alter procon.protected.tasks.add to include name for task. Can name multiple tasks the same name.
    • Add procon.protected.tasks.remove <string: taskname>. Will remove tasks with the same name.
    • Command to alter title of main window
    • Added a command line argument for this, figured it won't be used much and this seemed perfect for its intended use anyway.

    [*]Look into lowering .NET version needed to compile plugins

    • Display player numbers per team
    • Create events tab
    • Save settings for filter
    • Events logging

    [*]Split clan tag into separate column in player list[*]Add teams to drop down box in chat panel[*] Added "Set privilges on all server layers", kept revoke privileges so it's an easy option. When setting the privileges globally it will show the lowest set of privileges from all of the layers. Example: If the account can perm ban on 3 servers but only kick on two of them it will show in the global setting "kick" (This is so you don't accidentally extend an accounts privileges on a single server beyond what you intended)
    • Make manage accounts window prettier with a few icons n stuff. Added some, but it has a lot of white space and is kinda lame now =\

    [*]Manually add bans[*]Append server IP:Port to server name in connection panel.[*]Split console into two sub tabs, one for the current console and another for filtered punkbuster-only.

    • CInGameAdmin
    • Added nextlevel command to move to the next round/map.
    • Added countdowns to nextlevel and restart level. Will show "Restarting level in X seconds". The countdown will show for whatever scope you had on the command (#,@, !) Not using this argument will silently execute the command.
    • Added cancel command to cancel commands and countdowns.
    • Added better description with command syntax.
    • Changed "Ban" to "Temporary Ban" with a command of "tban"
    • Added "Permanenet Ban" with a command of "ban"
    • Now working properly on server not running punkbuster.

    • Made adding maplist case insensitive and got rid of the empty string bug.
    • Add round-change predictions to Mixed Gamemodes plugin. Since it's unpredictable there is an option to use this or the original OnMapChange style with one round only.
    • Report back map gamemodes and names if successfully added.. also removed that annoying empty string bug.

    Plugin API Changes
    • Changed struct SPrivileges to class CPrivileges. Class now inits lowest privileges available.
    • Changed ExecuteCommand(List<string> lstCommand) to ExecuteCommand(params string[] a_strCommandWords)

    • Fix banner not showing in server settings panel when initially loading procon
    • Also shouldn't scroll all over the place when you change a setting as well.

    [*]Investigate port tester not timing out
    • Won't block (freeze) now when the port is closed.

    [*]Force logout on privileges and password change[*] Investigate changing passwords
    • Change account password now actually does something, whoops

    [*]Investigate plugins not saving/loading settings.[*]Investigate strange accounts add->remove->add bug when working with plugins.[*]Fix missing carriage return in log files[*]Change 60000 ti 59999 in chat window, still displays as 60 seconds.[*]Fixxed crash when deleting an account when a server is not connected.[*]Make sure all directories are references in the correct casing and use platform independent variables for directory separators and newline. First attempt at getting it working on Linux/Mono. I'll be downloading a vmware copy of it soon enough though to try and get it working before
    • Whoops nevermind, I'm importing a shell32 function. I'll rewrite the function in managed code or find an alternative for

    [*]Fixed drop down list of time multipliers in the punish panel not being localized[*] Fixed bug where plugins would be recompiled and lose their settings when being maximized from the tray. ->
    Version numbering system corrected for this version, no versions have been skipped.

    • While looking into the banlist not being updated I had to stare at the console.. soo.. I scrapped and rewrote the code to colour the text. I knew RichTextBoxes had overhead and I knew this code was a bottle neck, but I didn't think it was THE bottle neck. The consoles/chat/punkbuster window are now about 20 (I did some more ) times faster and since all the code intersects there it should have a pretty noticable speed increase over all of procon

    • Sync the tabs up between multiple servers. Clicking the chat panel on one server will be like clicking the chat panel on all of the servers so you can easily switch between them.

    • Moved some controls around and resized to fit the latest batch of languages More info
    • Added localization for chat panel events checkboxes

    • CInGameAdmin
    • Fixed bug where a player could still be matched to even when they had left the server.
    • :twisted: This feature will be removed for release because it's pointless and spammy at the moment Playing around with a scrolling marquee effect (not done, barely tested.. looks kinda ugly really) in the text but I wasn't actually going to include anything until I fixed the plugin chat going into the chat tab problem.

    • Created first version of the spambot, for all your spamming needs. It's released now if you want to test it out.

    • Updated the welcome messages plugin so it can send multiple messages after a player joins.

    • Recover from internal error and log error to file for later debug (DEBUG.txt)
    • Fix player data still shown on the bottom of the playerlist even when the player is no longer in the server.
    • Add seconds to the time column in the events list so it sorts properly.
    • Scroll to added event
    • Fixed maplist plugin not able to reload its maplist
    • Fixed a threading + enumeration problem regarding tasks
    • Fixed the logs still containing the colour/font caret codes ->

    Beta Related
    • More error logging has been placed around procon. I'll be leaving this code in for the duration of the beta so I can quickly resolve outstanding crashes and problems. It may have a slight performance hit but I think you'd only notice it because I told you about it Please check your procon directory periodically for a DEBUG.txt. You can post it, pm it, email it or preferably submit a bug ticket. I'm not to fazed though, I just want the bug reports back so I can resolve them quickly!

    • Prevent spam and show account names of admins talking
    • The top tier admin (the one connected directely to the bfbc2 server) is called "Admin" still. Those connected to his/her layer will have their account names shown. Those connected to one of those admins layers will have their name shown and how they are connected to the bfbc2 server. Just prevents name spoofing is all.

    [*]Returned to a standard font so Korean and other languages would look the same over more operating systems.[*]Now saves the names of offline servers.[*]Added support for the two new maps included in R8

    • CMixedGamemodes
    • Hopefully fixed a problem of the maplist "hanging" on a single map indefinitely.
    • Removes map from maplist if the server does not recognize the map
    • If the entire maplist cannot be set on the server the maplist will panic and set a list of default RUSH maps

    • Split log files by date
    • Logs are now stored in /Logs/IP_Port/yyyyMMdd_type.log
    • Example: /Logs/

    • Added procon.protected.playsound <stringathtosoundfile> <int: repeatcount>
    • Added procon.protected.stopsound

    • Fix the server/team/squad/player tree expanding on its own occasionally
    • Fix crash when connecting/reconnecting to bfbc2 server.
    • Fixed layout problems on some operating systems
    • Fixed problem of setting plugin variable on the PLC that would cause the Accounts or Plugins tabs to be selected.
    • Fixed a crash when copying data from the banlist to the clipboard. ->

    • Added team names and squad to the output of the chat window instead of just the ID number.
    • Now saves/loads settings in playerlist, chat, events, banlist and console
    • Now saves/loads window position and state (maximized etc)
    • Added security options for plugins in the Options window. By default procon will run plugins in a sandbox with limited access to the file system, no outgoing/incoming connections and unable to open odbc database connections. The new options allow for users to add some trust to certain aspects of plugins.. pretty much plugins just got even more useful =)
    • Run plugins in a sandbox
    • Limited read/write to the plugins folder, read to media and read to configs dir.
    • Allow/Disallow specific outgoing connections to trusted ip+port/domain
    • Allow/Disallow ODBC connections (database connections)

    [*]Run plugins without restrictions - full access to your computer, other websites.. databases etc. Just as if procon was executing the code.[*]Added 1, 2, 4 split lists to the player lists. Also made the punishment panel down the bottom pop-out whenever you select a player since it's usually all disabled when no selection is made it might as well be hidden for added playerlist real estate. You can close the punishment panel by deselecting all players or pressing the red X. See screenshots.

    R9 Protocol Updates
    • Playerlist Panel
    • Added support for reasons with kicking/banning in vanilla
    • Altered banning to fit with new banList commands
    • Added support for vanilla GUID banning
    • Changed GUID to PB GUID and added another text box called "BC2 GUID"
    • Added score, ping and mid-game procon loading kills/deaths
    • Added support of the OnPlayerChangedSquad event
    • Added support of the OnPlayerChangedTeam event
    • All punkbuster bans now have the reason prefixed by "BC2!", this is so you can do a "pb_sv_banlist BC2!" and only have the banlist occupied by punkbuster bans done through procon, not the pbbhubs.
    • Changed to new squad numbering system

    [*]Chat Panel
    • Added optional display of Saying/Yelling
    • Added procon.admin.say so you can see admin names when they just say stuff
    • CAPITALIZED a yell to signify it was a yell.. if that's not distinguishable enough I'll add something ugly to the text box like Yell: or Say:, but I think it gets the point across without being obtrusive to the text.
    • Green text is now for sending and blue is for receiving, just like the two consoles.

    [*]Events Panel
    • Added OnPlayerChangedSquad event
    • Changed OnPlayerChangedTeam event so now it works of the servers event, not procons guesstemations
    • Also asjusted OnRoundChange while I was there, should hopefully only fire at round changes now..
    • Added OnLevelLoading, OnLevelStarted events. Eventually these will make the Multigamemode plugin more reliable. Basics first however..

    [*]Player list tree (the thing on the left)
    • Added support of the OnPlayerChangedSquad event
    • Added support of the OnPlayerChangedTeam event
    • Changed to new squad numbering system

    [*]Banlist Panel
    • Removed "Time of ban" and "Ban length" columns, the information is no longer available in the protocol.
    • Added support for banning on BC2 GUID's
    • Reworked all the banlist code to suit the new protocol.
    • Removed optional list removals, now there is only one clear list button that asks for confirmation first.

    [*]Layer updates
    • Validates permissions on new banlist commands.
    • Validates permissions on new maplist commands.

    • CWelcomeMessages
    • Now has option to use normal chat area or yelling, defaults to normal chat area

    • Now has option to use normal chat area or yelling, defaults to normal chat area

    • Now uses normal chat area

    • Changes to how the maps are rotated in R9 now makes the round guesser obsolete. You'll play two rounds of each map now everytime. Dice's also included some new levelloading events that are not utilised by MixedGamemodes yet, we'll wait till I fix all the bugs this version is going to introduce before playing around with this plugin

    • Added @exec command to execute a config in the configs directory. Essentially making any one able to build macro's of commands for the in game admin.
      Changed all responses to use admin.say with no option of changing.
      Fixed a couple of typos no one told me about =)
      Now has an invalid privileges when trying to permanently ban a player instead of doing nothing.
      Added @yell to yell a message, @say now uses normal chat area
      Added @pyell to yell at a player, @psay now uses normal chat area.

    [*]CPingKicker - NEW :!:
    • DEBUG mode that will show what the ping kicker wants to kick but won't actually kick the player. This is so you can validate that the plugin won't clear out your server while it's still in beta before you turn DEBUG mode off.
    • Adjustable average ping over adjustable amount of time. This allows for quick spikes in peoples connections when they otherwise have a pretty normal ping.
    • Adjustable yell/say to the public/private messages. You can use these context replacement strings in the messages
    • %playername% - The player being kicked
    • %playerloc% - The country the player is from (punkbuster must be enabled)
    • %averageping% - The ping that broke the camels back
    • %maxping% - Whatever you set "Kick player if average ping >" to.
    • %maxinterval% - Whatever you set "over a period of (seconds)" to.

    [*]Whitelist account holders so they won't be kicked for a high ping

    • Fixed crash when setting the banner URL to blank.
    • Fixed crash when playing a sound within a plugin.
    • Fixed security, or kinda-sorta lack thereof to do with plugins. It's a lot more defined and adjustable now.
      Fixed missing playername when whispering to a player in the chat panel.
    • Fixed ghost players on playerlist when reconnecting to a server. ->

    • CInGameAdmin
    • Added !kill command (!kill [playername] [reason])

    • Fixed problem where the plugin would loop setting the next map when you were on the last round.

    • Fixed a crash regarding plugin security settings
    • Fixed unlocalized chat events and playerlist columns ->

    • Added drag+drop team switching. Reasons are not supplied at the moment, I'm waiting on the client update to BC2 to see what is displayed when an admin kills/switches a player.
    • Split Manage Plugins + Accounts into two privileges. You now have "Manage plugins only" and "Manage plugins + accounts"
    • Added Clear button for chat/events
    • Added "View changelog"Link on Help menu

      Added !nuke to kill everyone on a team
      Changed the spell checker to favor partial matches from closest match rank to highest.

    • Fixed banList.list exception.
    • Workaround for R9 OnPlayerJoin event with blank soldier name.
    • Removed "new LinkArea", it's the exception being thrown on Linux and it's not needed. Maaan I promised I would download Linux like three weeks ago =(
      Fixed "Phogue [KILLED] KILLED" bug.
    • Fixed flashing punishment panel at the bottom of the player list
    • Fixed Chatscrollbar scrolling to the top
    • Fixed Events and Debug options stay checked after restart
    • Fixed Player info only shows clan tag instead of the whole name ->

    This version is targeting procon's update process so updates can become a lot more frequent, easier and more reliable with less strain on the communities projects.

    • Localization file updates are now downloaded automatically. Localization issues won't have to wait for procon releases provided the user has "Check for updates" enabled.
    • Procon will now check for updates automatically by default (the user can still deactivate this process, it's just like before but now it default to ON for new installs and after this update)
    • Updates will be downloaded in the background, the user will be prompted once the update is ready to be installed - Minimal procon downtime and the update process will only commence once the files have been retrieved because has some issues at times with the heavy load of updates =)
    • Add option to automatically shutdown, apply updates and restart procon.

    Command line arguments and TCAdmin users
    • Added command procon.private.tcadmin.enableLayer and procon.private.tcadmin.setPrivileges. You can see the documentation supplied or have a look at the forum thread at
    • Added -name "BFBC2 PRoCon" to alter the title of the window.
    • Added -maxservers 5 to limit the number of servers a procon instance can manage
    • Added -blockupdatechecks 1 to prevent the instance from checking for or downloading updates automatically. Ignores any settings within procon and just blocks the update check.

    • A lot more validation.. well actually now there is validation that an update was successful.

    • Configs are now saved when a plugin is enabled/disabled or a setting has changed via the Parent Layer Control.
    • Procon now saves config files as UNICODE but will read any format. ->

    Procon has been reworked internally so I'm expecting some problems in this release. See notes for details.

    • Added "-console 1" to open procon up in a lightweight console window. This is designed for GSP's to lower procons memory footprint by half (or more) when they have no interest in seeing a pretty window. it is designed so you open procon up normally, setup your customer then add the "-console 1" argument to the startup command line in TCAdmin (or similar). I'm interested to hear back on the memory improvements gained.
    • Added Import/Export of server settings to XML files. Right click on the server settings tab to check this out =)
    • Compatable with R13+ server version, although most of the functionality has not been introduced to the UI yet (because it won't work and while I was waiting for the latest patch from DICE, I think it's better to release some fixes sooner rather than later)
    • Added the map which will eventually display where people have been killed or died in the next server release. It will require a lot of tweaking but expect some updates for this as soon as I can get into a R13+ server.

    • Fixed empty banlist problem introduced in
    • Fixed moving players through UI and plugins in Squad Deathmatch/Rush. They should now go into Squad Team X Squad Alpha so others can spawn on them

    • While it looks the same procon has been restructured/rewritten underneath the interface. If you wanted to work on procon before but thought the source code was pretty damn bad you should check it out now and help improve it more so =) ->

    • Added round indicator (finally, forgot all about it =)

    • Fixed missing SlotID in plugins ->

    • Fixed a problem with packet dispatching and plugins
    • Blocked a second connection attempt while another connection is attempting.

    • The "Set next map" button has been hidden until I sort out the other more pressing problems with 0.5.1.X release =) ->

    • Moved reconnection so procon does not try connecting twice at startup.
    • Fixed missing BFBC2 server version number ->

    • Fixed Squad chat not being logged/displayed.
    • Fixed onKill events not firing
    • Updater now makes directories if they don't exist.
    • Updater is now copied, regardless of version checks, during the update process. Hopefully this will fix autoupdates using older versions instead of the downloaded version.
    • Playerlist now "refreshes" when the UI is loaded.
    • PLC accounts/plugins now "refreshes" when the UI is loaded. ->

    • Now when you delete a server it will also delete the corresponding host_port.cfg config file.

    • Changed layer enable/disable of plugins to update on the fly ->

    • Fixed problem with removing events from the captured events.
    • Added backlogging of events to display events captured during the UI startup.
    • Fixed a crash in the server settings panel during load ->

    • Fixed the layer not updating clients on changes to plugins ->

    • Fixed connection configs crashing on save
    • Fixed UI problem when loading up and a connection is established but procon shows a disconnected server
    • Fixed login panel not displaying the Username
    • Fixed login panel Automatically connect not reflecting what procon is actually doing at all times (if you changed it via the tree on the left it wouldn't update on the login panel, it now does)
    • Fixed procon.protected.notification.write command. Notification windows from plugins should now appear in the system tray once again.

    Known Issues (Still working on)
    • Empty plugin list when using PHS's service. I have not had anyone else report this error yet but please do, it will help with the investigation. ->

    • Reverted and edited the delete/move of PRoConUpdater.exe to now copy, then delete and again conditionally of the downloaded version being newer.
    • Hopefully fixed a problem when procon updates it's language files and calls LoadLocalizationFiles.
    • Fixed onPlayerLeave not displaying in chat panel.
    • Fixed crash when adding the same server twice.
    • Added exception catching to logging output to stop some format errors from effecting procon elsewhere.
    • Fixed onKill event in Chat Console to display "name1 [KILLED] name2" when no damage type is specified.
    • Fixed chat panel join/leave and kill notifications not ticking the boxes correctely.

    Features (... finally, I forgot about this bit regarding rounds as well
    • Added "rounds" to maplist and way of seeing/setting rounds on the vanilla maplist
    • Kill/death highlights on the playerlist ->

    • Fixed exception when selecting a plugin in one connection when the plugin appdomain of another connection has been disposed.
    • Added additional recovery for bad event packets.
    • Fixed ServerInfo being blank on startup (received while UI still loading)
    • Fixed tree "Automatically connect" being set to none, even if autoconnect was enabled.
    • Fixed command line arguments not being passed to the autoupdater, to then be passed back to procon.
    • Added additional file PRoCon.xml to pull command line arguments from.

    • Added totals/average to playerlist. I'll most likely change this very soon so totals and averages are on separate lines to reduce the horizontal pixel space it uses at the moment.

    • If blockupdatechecks argument is found the autoupdate option it's blocking will also be disabled and saved in the config. After it's first usage the option "Automatically check for updates" should be unchecked. ->

    • Fix for plugins not loading properly. Hopefully this trickles down the bug list regarding plugins, if not it's just one more thing to check off.
    • Fix for removing/moving maps in the maplist resetting all rounds to 2. ->

    • Fixed GUI problem introduced in with blank PLC plugin settings.
    • Fixed potential problem with saving configs, specifically plugin settings.
    • Added additional checking to the updater to avoid a crash when detecting an open instance of procon

    • Added a menu item to go to a page of Hosting Providers ->

    • Fixed RankLimit numeric up down not enabling on start up when "No Rank Limit" is unchecked.
    • Fixed missing roundsPlayed and roundsTotal from onLoadingLevel event
    • Added additional checking for no player selection to the playerlist. Hides the bottom panel betterer.
    • Changed so suicides now look like deaths instead of kills (red background, not green) in the playerlist
    • Fixed deaths being counted as kills between playerlist updates
    • Fixed score not blanking on round changes
    • Stored ReservedSlotList to be viewed when GUI loads
    • Possible fix for events connection timing out, but my internet is not up to scratch so I can't maintain a connection long enough to time out at the moment.
    • Added Process.Kill in PRoConUpdater if procon process is still active after four seconds.
    • Fix for GUI loading after procon_privileges flag has been sent from server (no PLC on startup)
    • Totals/Averages should now glue to the bottom of the playerlist.

    • Now ships with Kill streak plugin by HeliMagnet
    • Now ships with modified pingkicker by HeliMagnet (Replaces the vanilla version)
    • Added additional displayed server info updates on player join/leave, load level and round changes. The player counts and mapchanges should update more frequently.
    • Added calibration of image packs to map
    • Added scale in metres and yards to map
    • Added measuring tool to map
    • Added in game coordinates on mouse move to map
    • Added context menu for pointer control to fit on screen and zoom to 1.0x (Actual pixels) to map control
    • Split Totals/Averages into two rows ->

    • Fixed exception when moving to the map tab for the first time.
    • Fixed colour of OnJoin/OnLeave events in the chat tab back to blue for join, red for leave.

    • Added MaydaX's default file. The Default image pack should show correct measurements on the map now. It's probably correct for Atacama Desert, but we'll need to wait until that map passes QA to be sure.
    • Added to call methods inside of plugins. ->

    • Changed saving ConnectionConfig so it is buffered into a .cfg.temp file, then copied over .cfg file. This is to avoid wiping the config when a problem occurs while saving the config.
    • Fixed some formatting issues that have names with { or } in them.
    • Fixed bug where tasks would not re-initiate when reconnecting (no scores or map information getting updated)
    • Added timeout to events connection. Procon will now shutdown/reconnect the connections with an error when the events connection times out for any reason.
    • Fix for saving map calibrations then switching back to the same map
    • Hopefully fixed some problems with downloading the banner in the server settings panel
    • Added calibration tool details loading when seeking through the timeline.

    • Added Timeline to map to fastforward/rewind an hours worth of gameplay. Future versions will allow more, but as the little note in the tab says it's still being worked in progress
    • Made the map generally prettier.

    • Added OnLevelLoading rounds played/total to plugins. Thanks to Archsted for pointing this out =)
    • Added "OnMaplistList(List<MaplistEntry> lstMaplist);" to recieve the rounds per map. Thanks to Phil_K for finding this one =)
    • Added command registration to procon, plugin authors should use this new way to add in game commands to their plugins. has only shipped with CBasicInGameInfo using this way as a test to work out any problems.
    • Added @version command to CBasicInGameInfo to supply basic information about the server and rcon tool running.
    • Added @help command to CBasicInGameInfo to supply a list of commands a player can execute.
    • Included Read+Write access for plugins to the Logs folder in the plugins sandbox.
    • Added methods for plugins to get a localization key from any language file by Country Code (able to get language keys based on a players country)

    • Added weapons/specs. Kudo's to MaydaX from pbbans again for supplying this information =) ->

    • Fixed incorrect yard markers on scale.
    • Fixed culture differences in saving/loading float numbers from a image map pack. Now saves in english decimal (1.0, 5.66 etc)
    • Fixed plugin security setting to escape '.' in the regex of a website.
    • Fixed incorrect variable being used in the plugin console to determine amount of lines to display.

    3,128 ->
    • Battlemap
    • Added moh in game images to the battlemap
    • Split zoom/scale of coord into X/Y (Squishy moh maps)
    • Added "map.Overlay" to battlemap image packs to lower download of similar maps. Can now overlay a image with markers over a base image of the map.
    • Added number picker for rotation instead of just n*90%360
    • Edited zoom slider to increment by 0.01%
    • Edited scale slider to increment by 1px
    • Added a calibration grid overlay to better describe the calibration method
    • Changed BFBC2 and MOH to include ScaleX and ScaleY values
    • Recalibrated every map. You may notice your zones a little out of place on most maps and a lot out of place on Conquest White Pass. The calibrations are now more accurate which means your zones were never in their 'correct' places. You'll need to shift them around a little, you'll notice it's mostly minor.

    • Added OnPunkbusterUnbanInfo to PRoConPluginAPI
    • Fix for PlayerKilledByAdmin being fired instead of PlayerMovedByAdmin in a plugin

    [*]Fix for server settings player limit only showing 8 players[*]Improved the memory used by procon. You should notice significant improvements when using the full version of procon.[*]Fix for procon.shutdown being sent by layer not being considered an error on the client and preventing it from reconnecting[*]Moved to only be sent after UI actions. People using Zaeed's shared banlist should notice a significant performance boost[*]Improved the banlist refresh so it no longer locks the UI thread up for a half second.[*]Prevented admin.yell from the chat panel. Forgot about this, admin.yell is not possible in moh.[*]Fix for updated packages not able to be installed. You should now see updates on the start page/updates section[*]Added resized moh weapons and vehicle icons[*]Added the level file name to the tool tip of the current map info[*]Fix for autoconnect problems including 'invalid password' error when reconnecting after a few connection attempts ->
    • Updated MOH.def to include vehicles and weapons, though they are not linked to a specific kit yet.
    • Added missing safe variables to moh layer client
    • Moved rss fetch to procon.core so the procon.console.exe could still get the rss feed to update packages. It was supposed to be there in the first place but never got tested =\ This means you should be able to install plugins via the packages tab of a connected layer client, instead of the client always saying "The package is already installed.." if the layer is running "PRoCon.exe -console 1" or "PRoCon.Console.exe".
    • Removed Zaeeds plugins from the install that comes with procon. We had a fight. He scolded and hit me =( I don't want to talk about it :cry:
    • Fix for banlist not saving/refreshing when banning via the playerlist panel.
    • Fix for banlist removing pb bans when no more vanilla bans are present (you unban the last vanilla banned player)
    • Fixed up procon.account.onLogout event not being fired when a layer connection is terminated without logging out first. If you're connected for a while you shouldn't see ghost logins anymore.
    • Added missing moh weapons, I think that's all of them..
    • Added basic admin logging (who kicked/banned/killed/moved who). This is mostly for logging on the layer side but it does have limited support for when a admin uses the procon gui to move/kick/kill/ban some one it will display to all connected admins who did it. It won't show connected admins if the admin uses a command in the in game admin
    • Fix for index out of range exception when the language files auto update in moh
    • Removed/Moved default plugins.
    • Removed the menu from the main window
    • Added drop down tools icon, mimicking google chromes tools.
    • Added ban type option to in game admin plugin
    • Added "pb_sv_updbanfile" and "pb_sv_banload" after unbanning a punkbuster ban
    • Rearranged the tools menu so the connections list spanned the whole window.
    • Added reasons to events logging ->
    • Added support for map pack 7. ->
    • Added battlemap support for bfbc2 map pack 7.
    • Included the new SPECACT weapons
    • Added admin name to chat panel output
    • Added right-click stats lookup on the playerlist ->
    • Added Vietnam weapons and vehicles
    • Added Default AlphaPack Battlemap for Vietnam (requires >=R27)
    • Fix for '/' before chat not hiding the text from players
    • Added options for Admin Move Message and Show Admin name in chat to options window (Tools -> Options -> Advanced)
    • Added support for R9 of MoH
    • Added MoH kits+specializations and support for onSpawn event (Weapon restriction should function now)
    • Fixed flags not reappearing on the playerlist when a player spawns back in.

    [*]Added round time and server uptime timers to server info. This will only be viewable in R9 of MoH and R27 of BFBC2.[*]Added support for R27 of BFBC2[*]Added support for bVietnam icon in drop down list (requires >=R27)[*]Fixed NVA being called Russian Army in Vietnam [*]Fixed Rush team names in Vietnam [*]Fixed Sqrush team names in Vietnam [*]Added enable/disable scrolling to server & pb console ->
    • Added support for operation hastings in bfbc2 vietnam
    • Prevented procon.exe and procon.console.exe from loading up another instance of the application in the same directory.
    • Fixed hardcoded ban reasons on PlayerPunishPanel(Playerlist) and moved them to reasons.cfg
    • Added OnPunkbusterBeginPlayerInfo and OnPunkbusterEndPlayerInfo events to the plugin API. (only useful to plugin developers) Find an example plugin for using these methods attached to this post.
    • Automatically connect is now set to false when the user manually disconnects
    • Reconnection now occurs when an error occurs on the connection, the connection is not connected and automatically connect is set to true OR it is running in console mode.
    • It'll reconnect a little more aggressively now, taking the assumption if you've got procon open you probably want to be connected to something

    [*]Fix for task enumerator exception.. again (again)[*]Added a label to display what map pack people are running. Should aid support on operation hastings =\[*]Now reloads a definition file if a game server was restarted with a different mod running. Plugins are also reloaded - the effect is like restarting procon completely but for only a single connection.[*]Removed warning about plc tab being removed[*]Fixed BFBC2 Headshot icon on the battlemap[*]Added layer local accounts/plugins tabs being hidden. This is an option in the options menu - default to true.[*]Moved procon plugin/account handling to the start of the connection requests. The PLC tab should appear quickly now, but may still take time to be populated.[/list:u:2wpao5lp] ->
    step to
    • moved ServerVersions strings from being hardcoded and moved them to the related game.mod.def files
    • added Option to show round time constantly
    • added hidden option to <ip>.cfg files: procon.protected.timezone_UTCoffset value.
      • Timestamp on all consoles are changed by UTCoffset
      • Actually value uses locale depended digit sign so you may need to use 7,5 instead of 7.5.
      • After loading of <ip>.cfg UTCoffset set in the related connection, so first load of plugins can show
        local time of server hosting procon.

    • Chat tab: added fix to set text length to correct value if admin name should be shown.
      max length gets updated on send (return & button), clear chat and start/stop scrolling if option
      to show name was changed
    • fixed/enhanced ReservedSlotsList tab to provide a refresh button ( sends .load & .list command )

    step to
    • added R30 (638140) server build
    • added R32 (720174) server build
    • added R28 & R32 additional serverInfo parameter to CServerInfo
    • added R-28 & R-32 ServerInfo parameters to PlasmaStatus ToolTip
    • Moved Uptime to the far right so all items before the time remain static
    • Replaced thread with timer to remove deadlock when rebuilding plugins
    • added missing GLZ-87 automatic grenade luncher
    • added AH-64 weapon definitions
    • added weapon uav1#smoke

    I haven't listed those changes which were done to the language files (typing errors, missing options). Adding weapon definitions also means to add them to the language files.

    Language files which are already up2date on basis that they have listed all language
    tabs which are defined in au.loc:
    • au.loc
    • de.loc

    After having procon updated you should take a look at the plasma status tooltip.
    It now holds a lot more information from the serverInfo reply.
