    Well, that's my fault. I forgot to turn it off after a short test.

    Here a snippet from the punkbuster logfile of some players who got kicked because the plugin thought no screenshots were successful:

    Code:
    [11.03.2012 14:58:51] Auto Screenshot 000304 Requested from 28 bf2scripttec
    [11.03.2012 15:00:52] Auto Screenshot 000314 Requested from 32 Knivkskarp
    [11.03.2012 15:00:58] Auto Screenshot 000315 Requested from 20 Nikk1976

    If you want, I can send you the complete punkbuster logfile.


    Also take a look at the complete plugin logs with debug = 3:

    Almost all players have "successfully received: 0", although the plugin sees the screenshot are being received.

    thx for your feedback.
    i found the problem. the received screenshots were not identified properly on your server by the plugin.
    i will release i fix today, in a couple of hours. i will also implement a "health check" to prevent errors like this in the future.

    this should be fixed. please try it out and tell me if it works properly
    "requested: playername" should display the playername as "successfully received: playername"

    Testing it now, without any kick or ban action active

    First impression: Problem seems to be fixed

    Server Log:

    [11.06.2012 06:23:46] Kick/Ban Command Issued (BC2! 3 screenshots requested, 0 received.") for (slot#5) 71.8.140.137:3659 xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx ty_ger07
    [11.06.2012 06:23:46] Lost Connection (slot #5) 71.8.140.137:3659 xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx(-) ty_ger07

    Punkbuster Message:

    Game disconnected: you were kicked by PunkBuster. Stated reason: PunkBuster permanent ban issued on this Game Server for player 'ty_ger07' ... Prior Kick/Ban

    ---------------------------------------------------------

    I just got banned in one of my own servers. Now I don't know how to unban myself because my name isn't showing up in PRoCon and removing my name from pbbans.dat didn't cause me to be unbanned and my name isn't in the Admin/BanList.txt file.

    So:

    1) How do I unban myself from the server?

    2) Why was I banned if I am listed in the whitelist?

    Sorry, I have no plugin logs.

    EDIT: I was able to unban myself using the command: PB_SV_UnBanGuid [guid] in the PunkBuster console.

    Here is the entire PB log (of only me -- I removed the other parts) of that session:

    That is with your newest plugin version.


    I don't understand why it says the first request was ignored due to too many requests if that was indeed the first request. It seems like there must have been some more events which weren't logged.

    I don't understand why it says the first request was ignored due to too many requests if that was indeed the first request. It seems like there must have been some more events which weren't logged.
    the first request (06:22:32) did not fail. the second request (06:22:59) failed because "Less than 30 seconds have passed since last request". the other 2 requests did not fail because more than 30 seconds had passed since the prior request.

    the problem here is that you request too many screenshots way too fast (3 (4) requests in 1min 10seconds). therefor, also depending on your pb_sv_ssdelay and pb_sv_sstimeout settings, the client has no chance to even send one successful screenshot (can take several minutes). then the player gets kicked.

    solution: increase "how many request do you want to send until..." to 4 because: "...PunkBuster will not allow more than 3 screenshots to be requested from each player within any 10 minute period...."
    also, you should set punkbuster to automatically request screenshots with the settings from the first post: ssfrom=300 ssto=900 rather than requesting them manually



    2. whitelist

    now this is just a guess, i have to check it later today.
    ReserverdSlots/ServerVIPs are checked by the plugin around every 2 minutes (32 slots. depending on the server load. gonna change this in the future) and when the plugin or the server is started.
    i understand you have tested this when your server was almost empty (which is when i would test :-)). then the time between updating the ReserverdSlots is longer. so my guess is: the plugin had not updated its whitelist when the kick/ban happened.
    i will test if there is a problem with the whitelist later today.
    until then please manually check if your name is in the whitelist.

    if you have any other question feel free to ask :-)
