CoD2 /+smoke bug (solution for kick)?is there anyway to kick users exploiting /+smoke bug?
Posted Mar 11, 2011 - 12:05 PM
Is there anyway to monitor in pb whatever a user type in console, and if types a specific text (or text includes a specific "sub"text) to get kicked? Im referring to /+smoke bug.
thanks in advance

Thanks for the reply
both would be nice, but even blocking is fine (without kicking them). the bug is described here . If im not sure i cant block the command, i want to just kick them when typing +smoke (in a no-smoke server when you type this command.. its 99.9% only for the bug..). I suppose this command isn't a cvar check like checking for max packets/offsetscale, etc, because /+smoke isnt actually a cvar. Is there any check like blocking bad names? to detect specific text entered in console? and kick accordingly?

Interesting problem.... I've played around with it a bit trying to find a way to kick for it or block it. Couldn't find a way to do that. As you stated +Smoke is not a CVAR that you need to enter a specific value for.
But, I did discover that if you put this line in your pbsvuser.cfg, it will screw up the game for any offenders that type "/+smoke" in their console.
PB_SV_CVAR +smoke IN 0 0
(you need both zero's with a space between - maybe that's why it didn't work for the poster in the other forum you linked to)
Whenever they try to throw a grenade (Frag or Smoke) It causes their arm to freeze in the air, grenade in their hand, without any weapon....hahaha
If they hit "ESC" or "~" it will release the grenade, but this will be very annoying and disconcerting for them. lol
Now, of course, if the abusers NEVER throw any nades, they won't encounter this nice annoyance. But, who doesn't throw nades in CoD2?
It will continue this behavior, unless & until they completely exit the game and restart it. Players that don't type "+smoke" in their consoles are not affected.
Try it out and see if this little "fix" meets your needs.
Hope it helps......

I think that what you are asking is if ALL players will be affected if you add this command.
The answer is, No. Even though the '4' key is bound to +smoke for all players by default.
ONLY those that actually type "/+smoke" in the console will be affected.
Other players can still use the '4' key to throw smoke and will not be affected.

Just to clarify for the OP, the command "PB_SV_CVAR +smoke IN 0 0" will NOT kick or block players that type "/+smoke" in the console. But, it will cause their arm to freeze in the air if they try to throw a grenade after typing +smoke.
It's funny to watch them run around with the nade in the air and unable to defend themselves.
They inevitably get killed, try it again get killed again, and after a few more repeats they leave the server! lol

i can use PB_SV_BindSrch "weapnext; wait 2; weapnext" to search and log it but not to kick them auto from server .
