Banned xml

Post by skorpio » Wed Apr 27, 2011 9:48 pm

On the File Manager pull down there is a /banned.xml. This appears new. I have a list of players banned recently.

Can I modify the /banned.xml to change ban length, or unban?

Otherwise, this looks like a helpful file.

You can shut down the server and edit that list manually if you need to, yes. You can also edit the bans in-game through rcon. The Crytek documentation talks about the commands for this (http://www.nfoservers.com/forums/viewto ... =64&t=5195):

ban <playername> - bans player for whatever the timeout is currently
ban_timeout <minutes> - Sets the ban time. A time of 0 is permanent
ban_remove <playername> - Removes the ban
ban_status - Lists the currently banned players and times

Thank you edge. I tried modifying the /banned.xml. But the changes did not take effect. I'm guessing I needed to restart. But server running full so won't do it just now.

So I ran a ban_status; pulled up the banned list. Copied the id number, and did another rcon ban using the saved id and the new time.

This time the ban was changed immediately and extended to new desired length (Crytekprogrammer hacker).

Also, set the ban_timeout 0, so I just rcon "ban <name>" and default is the ban_timeout setting.

It's fast and simple.

Thank you NFO for all your hard work.

I used the cpanel Rcon line to see what ban_timeout is set to, it returns this.
The server has replied: $3ban_timeout = $630 $5[DUMPTODISK]$4

The two numbers after $6 is how many minutes the ban is correct?
($630 $5[DUMPTODISK]$4 blue = ban in minutes)

Will you be adding a ban_timeout to the easy setup page for Crysis 2 when you have time?

Yes. The $x bits are probably just color codes.

I will try to test this when I have the chance. (There's a decent chance that it won't work to put it in dedicated.cfg, since the reserved slot commands don't.) Have you tried adding it?
