INSTALL

1. copy TrueBalancer.cs to Procon\Plugins\BF4 and/or Procon\Plugins\BF3

2. restart Procon Layer Server

 

WHAT DOES TRUEBALANCER DO?

YouTube - Explanations & Tutorial

 

 

Plugin Description:

This plugin is used to autobalance Teams in BF3 (All modes except SquadDeathMatch)

There are 3 major parts within TrueBalancer:

 

1. PlayerNumber - Balancer

- The PN-Balancer try to keep the teams even by playernumber. Eg: 30vs30

 

2. Skill- Scrambler

- The Scrambler trys to even out the teams at roundend by skill. Eg: Even out the teams by SPM, Skill, K/D...

 

3. Balancing Guard

- Balancing Guard trys to keep teams even by skill during the game. He sorts new players to the teams they fit best and doesn't allow players to switch into the other team if they would unbalance the teams by PlayerNumber or Skill. In all Conquest Modes and TDM - Modes Balancing Guard doesn't allow winning team switching.

 

IMPORTANT:

If you are running the plugins in sandboxmode, make sure you have these ports open:

https://battlelog.battlefield.com 443

http://battlelog.battlefield.com 80

 

 

InGame Commands

@scramblenow: Will scramble the teams now. Use with caution. This will make players angry.

@scrambleround: Will scramble the teams at roundend.

!tb-move

!tb-fmove

 

Some BalancingGuard - Examples:

 

1. BalancingGuard trying to even out the teams. A bad new player (Skill: 185,76 and is below 292,06 -> declared as bad player) joines the server. He would have gotten into the bad team but is moved to the better team to even teams out.

 

[14:55:04 03] *** New Player ***: [yyy]XXXX--- From: 0.0, to: 1

[14:55:04 04] Player's Skill: 185,76

[14:55:04 04] Good Player Skill: 486,76 --- Bad Player Skill: 292,06

[14:55:04 04] Team 1: 27 --- Team 2: 28

[14:55:04 04] Score 1: 402 --- Score 2: 458

[14:55:04 04] Skill 1: 399,56 --- Skill 2: 422,05

 

 

[14:55:04 04] Player Data: Rank:30,00 - Skill: 185,76 - SPM: 281,46 - SPMcombat: 170,19 - K/D: 0,57

[14:55:04 04] Team1 Data: Rank: 50,19 - Skill: 399,56 - SPM: 317,39 - SPMcombat: 173,29 - K/D: 1,12

[14:55:04 04] Team2 Data: Rank: 62,32 - Skill: 422,05 - SPM: 439,36 - SPMcombat: 225,71 - K/D: 1,47

[14:55:04 04] Bad new player moved to other team to balance the teams.

[14:55:04 04] ************************************************** ************

 

 

2. Balancing Guard does not allow winning Team switching. Here we have a TeamSwitcher (a pretty god player) trying to switch into the winning (better) team.

[14:57:38 61] *** TEAMSWITCHER ***: [yyy]XXXX--- From: 1.8, to: 2

[14:57:38 61] Player's Skill: 562,13

[14:57:38 61] Good Player Skill: 493,54 --- Bad Player Skill: 296,13

[14:57:38 61] Team 1: 30 --- Team 2: 30

[14:57:38 61] Score 1: 252 --- Score 2: 427

[14:57:38 61] Skill 1: 381,01 --- Skill 2: 408,66

 

 

[14:57:38 61] Player Data: Rank:60,00 - Skill: 562,13 - SPM: 415,89 - SPMcombat: 198,61 - K/D: 2,18

[14:57:38 61] Team1 Data: Rank: 49,83 - Skill: 381,01 - SPM: 321,06 - SPMcombat: 174,19 - K/D: 1,19

[14:57:38 61] Team2 Data: Rank: 61,87 - Skill: 408,66 - SPM: 432,75 - SPMcombat: 224,86 - K/D: 1,41

[14:57:38 61] You are not allowed to switch into the winning team. SHAME ON YOU!

[14:57:38 61] You are switched back into your squad: 1.8

[14:57:38 61] ************************************************** ************

 

3. Balancing Guard and WhiteList. A VIP Player is joining. Nothing happening to him.

 

[15:16:37 66] *** New Player ***: [FoC]HRPanter--- From: 0.0, to: 2

[15:16:37 66] HRPanter is VIP.

[15:16:37 66] ************************************************** ************

 

Known Issues:

- While BalancingGuard is turned on, no players can be moved by an admin, if the admin would unbalance the teams by playernumber or skill with that playermove. Solution: Turn off BalancingGuard while trying to move players and than afterwards turn it back on or use TB's own movecommands ingame.

And thanks for releasing this plugin for BF4 :smile:

truebalancer and multibalancer provide functions that are similar, but they differ in some details.

 

tb tries to balance players also when they are joining the server (fetching their stats and analyzing it). this is done by a thing called tb-value consisting of your rank, skill, kd, spm and combat spm.

so balance is asured right from the start.

 

multibalancer is a live balancer. it will balance players depending on their in-round stats (correct me if im wrong).

 

both provide pros and cons, let me give you some examples:

tb provides decent balance based on stats. so teams will be equal. however if good players just fool around and bad players have a really good this might not work 100%.

tb does not provide balance based on in round stats.

 

if you are using multibalancer and you are happy with the result, you can stick with it. its good.

if you have been using tbin bf3, you should defenitly try tb for bf4. tb has been providing awesome balancing since the start of bf3

Looking forward to your updated Cheat Detector for BF4.

 

Do you have an ETA on CD? It will be nice to have it once again catching the cheaters.

dont know about that. would not recommend it for now

could be done but nothing planned

 

I tried it for my BF4 server and it seems to NOT work, I watched your videos and configured all the setting correctly however there was no display of any moves at all and the teams ended up really unbalanced.

if all debug modes are off (5. debugwindow output) no msgs will be shown at all, except for errors.

 

moves will be shown in the chat window like this:

[13:48:21] AUTOBALANCING [Player: LeonBanker]

[13:50:37] AUTOBALANCING [Player: VP_RIMPAC]

 

for rounds ending up not being balanced: tb tried, i can asure that :-)

if you want numbers turn on debug mode for balancing guard, then you can see the tbvalue (and kd, skill and so on) for every player and the whole team in the plugin output. like mentioned above somewhere balancing by stats has pros and cons. but be sure that tb will make the statistic difference between the teams smaller. you probably would have experienced an even more unbalanced round without tb

Thx

It's the above/below threshold for team size differences. Below "24" is one setting, and above "24" would be the other.

We run ours at 32, 1 player diff below, 2 player diff above, and it works well like that.

 

 

@Grizzly..........THANK YOU! DONATION SENT!

 

*PS....Could you please put version # in thread titles for your various plugins, please? Makes it a lot easier to tell what/when updates come out.

 

Thank you again!

Not to mention the plugin itself. Your GetPluginVersion should return "major.minor.patch.rev" format, e.g., 0.0.5.0, in order for the anonymous usage statistics database to work properly.

 

Currently returns: "0.5 RC".

roger that sir :-)

by confirming the second question "are you sure_". you tell the tb to scramble the teams when this round ends. there is no confirmation in the debug window output but only ingame.

 

the debug output could use a makeover

 

It's the above/below threshold for team size differences. Below "24" is one setting, and above "24" would be the other.

Agreed, can we have the traditional move commands (From In-game Admin plugin) instead?

Thanks for any suggestions.

that would be beyond the scope of this plugin sorry.

you should be able to move the players with procon gui or with the ingame commands

  • Our picks

    • Game Server Hosting:

      We're happy to announce that EZRCON will branch out into the game server provider scene. This is a big step for us so please having patience if something doesn't go right in this area. Now, what makes us different compared to other providers? Well, we're going with the idea of having a scaleable server hosting and providing more control in how you set up your server. For example, in Minecraft, you have the ability to control how many CPU cores you wish your server to have access to, how much RAM you want to use, how much disk space you want to use. This type of control can't be offered in a single service package so you're able to configure a custom package the way you want it.

      You can see all the available games here. Currently, we have the following games available.

      Valheim (From $1.50 USD)


      Rust (From $3.20 USD)


      Minecraft (Basic) (From $4.00 USD)


      Call of Duty 4X (From $7.00 USD)


      OpenTTD (From $4.00 USD)


      Squad (From $9.00 USD)


      Insurgency: Sandstorm (From $6.40 USD)


      Changes to US-East:

      Starting in January 2022, we will be moving to a different provider that has better support, better infrastructure, and better connectivity. We've noticed that the connection/routes to this location are not ideal and it's been hard getting support to correct this. Our contract for our two servers ends in March/April respectively. If you currently have servers in this location you will be migrated over to the new provider. We'll have more details when the time comes closer to January. The new location for this change will be based out of Atlanta, GA. If you have any questions/concerns please open a ticket and we'll do our best to answer them.

    • Hello All,

      I wanted to give an update to how EZRCON is doing. As of today we have 56 active customers using the services offered. I'm glad its doing so well and it hasn't been 1 year yet. To those that have services with EZRCON, I hope the service is doing well and if not please let us know so that we can improve it where possible. We've done quite a few changes behind the scenes to improve the performance hopefully. 

      We'll be launching a new location for hosting procon layers in either Los Angeles, USA or Chicago, IL. Still being decided on where the placement should be but these two locations are not set in stone yet. We would like to get feedback on where we should have a new location for hosting the Procon Layers, which you can do by replying to this topic. A poll will be created where people can vote on which location they would like to see.

      We're also looking for some suggestions on what else you would like to see for hosting provider options. So please let us know your thoughts on this matter.

    • Hi All,

      So seeing as Venice Unleased is released, I'm looking into if I should offer game hosting for it. I would like some feedback on this subject.

    • So as the topic title says, should EZRCON offer general web hosting services?
      • 1 reply
    • Added ability to disable the new API check for player country info


      Updated GeoIP database file


      Removed usage sending stats


      Added EZRCON ad banner



      If you are upgrading then you may need to add these two lines to your existing installation in the file procon.cfg. To enable these options just change False to True.

      procon.private.options.UseGeoIpFileOnly False
      procon.private.options.BlockRssFeedNews False
