    My server automatically request screens of all players and I see them being received.

    But the plugin never reports it correctly when debug = 2

    I always see this:
    PBSSE PLAYERNAME requests: 1 successfully received: 0
    PBSSE PLAYERNAME2 requests: 2 successfully received: 0

    Even after a while the plugin stops reporting at all.

    Plugin is running on the layer host.
    note that you will only see individual requested and received screenshots when the debug level is set to 3 or higher. debug level 3 is also best to test if everything is working. debug level 1 is recommended for every day use.

    i noticed when running locally (not on the parent layer host) the plugin sometimes does not report the list. i have never notied this when running on a parent layer host. been running this plugin (more or less this way, on parent layer host) for a few months and never noticed it.
    i am however aware of this and im working on a fix right now

    if you are really in doubt about successfully received screenshots not being counted:
    set debug level to 3

    look for the screenshot line in your pb log
    Code:
    PunkBuster Server: Screenshot c:\gameservers\s******\Battlefield3\pb\svss\pb000100.png successfully received (MD5=44001ABE2A4DD2CA9F6D4E91CAD96943) from 10 dwSynoxX [1e20ca732d99493ee703039b6eb3cad7(-) 178.3.175.146:3659]
    and check if the plugin reports
    [18:04:16 80] PBSSE PBScreenshot successfully received: dwSynoxX

    I'm guessing something isn't working correctly. Went and checked some of the players who were not returning screenshots and found that a majority of them had screenshots on file. 2 of them didn't have any all though.

    Debug is set to 1.

    For the time being I have disabled the plugin.
    hmmm...not good. first thx for letting me know.

    set debug level to 3 please
    can you post an example of the lines in your punkbuster log like these:
    Code:
    PunkBuster Server: Screenshot c:\gameservers\s******\Battlefield3\pb\svss\pb000518.png successfully received (MD5=42F72C8C5DB7348C36D40DA136C41562) from 16 BAYAKEP [65e60356f034b5cbd4265119d02ad8a1(-) 195.2.233.232:3659]
    PunkBuster Server: Screenshot c:\gameservers\s******\Battlefield3\pb\svss\pb000520.png successfully received (MD5=1510560BBEC5551755D4BECB4707DC39) from 9 Kouhia1994 [1f11dfdddeb83c8ae7d7416425bbbfa5(-) 91.154.47.217:3659]
    best with players that have slot numbers with 1 and with 2 digits (16 and 9 here)

    check also if these received screenshots are noticed by the plugin on debug level 3

    Hey grizzlybeer, the plugin isn't working for me.

    A couple of minutes ago half my server was kicked. According to the plugin not one screenshot of 4 tries were successful.
    But in fact they were successful: I received screenshots of all kicked players.

    For now I'm removing this plugin.
    I won't do support via PM: if you need help, make a topic on the public forums.

    I don't have any ideas, but I think he might have better luck trying to fix the issue if you explain better what the issue is.

    What is "requesting" the screenshots on your server? Is it a plugin? Is it an admin? How often are the requests being made?

    Do you have any plugin debug logs from the time the issue occured?



    I haven't had an PBSSE bans yet -- no false positives and no positives either.

    Yeah, that will take a screenshot of every player in the server at a very often rate which gets very annoying because you have so many screenshots to constantly look through.

    I personally am using PRoConRulz to take screenshots only of particular players on suspicious events such as certain lengths of kills streaks or headshots in a row and so forth. This keeps the massive screenshot issue to a minimum.

    Also remember that taking so many screenshots (of all players) in a large server at once can cause server lag. I would highly recommend against it.

    The problem is: The plugin says the screenshots were failed, while they were not.

    My servers are doing / requesting screenshots automatically. My PunkBuster settings:
    Code:
    pb_sv_AutoSs 1 //[0=No, 1=Yes (default=0)]
    pb_sv_SsFloor 1 //[Low screenshot filename serial #]
    pb_sv_SsCeiling 2500 //[High screenshot filename serial #]
    pb_sv_AutoSsFrom 300 //[Min # of seconds to wait before requesting next ss]
    pb_sv_AutoSsTo 600 //[Max # of seconds to wait before requesting next ss]
    pb_sv_SsCmd "" //[Filename of system command to run after screenshots]
    pb_sv_SsWidth 400 //[Requested pixel width of remote screenshots]
    pb_sv_SsHeight 204 //[Requested pixel height of remote screenshots]
    pb_sv_SsXpct 50 //[Percentage across screen for remote screenshots]
    pb_sv_SsYpct 50 //[Percentage down screen for remote screenshots]
    pb_sv_SsSrate 1 //[Sample Rate for remote screenshots]
    pb_sv_SsDelay 0 //[Maximum delay client waits before capturing screenshot]
    pb_sv_SsPath "" //[Path where remote screenshots are saved]
    pb_sv_ssLogging 3 //[1=Reg. Log, 2=SS Log, 3=Both, 0=Neither]
    pb_sv_ssTimeout 300 //[Seconds]
    But also ProconRulz is requesting screenshots when 4 headshots in 15 secs.

    So what happened here is the plugin thought the screenshots were failed, while they were not.
    Result was half the server was kicked.

    EDIT
    Now I'm wondering about this:
    I've set the limit of failed screenshots to 4.
    What if 10 screenshots are requested, 6 are received, but 4 fail.
    Will the player be punished (kick / ban)?

    im really sorry to hear that.
    like others suggested, can you please show me (post here or send me via pm) a line from your punkbuster log showing a successful screenshot.
    like this one:
    Code:
    PunkBuster Server: Screenshot c:\gameservers\s******\Battlefield3\pb\svss\pb000681.png successfully received (MD5=2868488BE0ACEC0D9282B24A9223C687) from 17 juanjosetiro [b0d737253edea341023abjc11fbcb5ch(-) 188.78.233.111:3659]
    i think the plugin does not identify this line correctly on your server. (i was assuming they dont differ too much)
    im really interested in fixing this.

    apologies again for the kicking on your server. (please only activate notify until you are sure it is working correctly)

    no, the plugin will only kick/ban if 0 screenshots are received. 1 successful screenshot is enough to not get kicked.
    every 4 requests (setting "how many requests do you want to send until kick/notify") the lists will also reset to 0 for the specific player.

    so if you have:
    PBSSE playername requests: 4 successfully received: 3

    playername will be reset to:
    PBSSE playername requests: 0 successfully received: 0

    and start counting again...
    so every player needs 1 successful screenshot every 4 requests
