Locked names lets the serveradmin restrict who can use certain nicknames on his/her server
I will use as example in this tutorial my own nickname "|5chaap2k" and "ADMIN", This is not the same as Registerred Tags and is FREE.
Why should i use Locked names?
Mainly two, and both related to lazyness
1st - For admin's you don't get people impersonating you on your own servers
2nd - For Casual players or clanmembers you'll know in one sight if it's really them swearing/cursing in your server without the need of checking their PBguids/IP's
What information do I need??
You need the following information of the players u wish to protect by locking their names:
- Ingame name/Alias.
- Punkbuster Guid pb_myguid in console, or just look them up in the MPI4 if you're a Streaming Game Admin
How to setup a server to use it?
If you want to use Locked names on your server, you must edit pbsv.cfg with the following command:
pb_sv_NameLock [GUID] [NAME]
Where u replace [GUID] with your PBguid and [NAME] with the nickname/alias u wish to lock to it. Example of my namelocks (guids are fictional):
// Locked names on this server pb_sv_namelock a211387836de22f472f488f436f329ba |5chaap2k pb_sv_namelock a211387836de22f472f488f436f329ba admin
Save the config, and restart PB (pb_sv_restart) to make it active
