InGame Punkbuster Screenshots [11 Nov 2011]

Simple plugin that allows you to get punkbuster screenshots of either a player, or the entire server while ingame.

 

How to use

 

Use one of the following prefixes: ! @ # / Followed by the screenshot command, which is ss by default

 

There are two methods of use:

1) Entire server

@ss

 

2) Individual player

@ss Zaeed_au

 

Installation

Extract the ZIP file.

 

Place the .inc file into the Plugins folder, and the .cs files into the game folders

i.e. maintain folder structure included in the ZIP

 

Punkbuster screenshots will be found on the game server, in the punkbuster directory. Unfortunately I can't change that.

 

Thanks

Thanks to Phil for a bit of odd bug fixing.

Screenshots were already working in BC2. The black ones coming depend on PB. If they have done an update to eliminate cases where a PB client sends a black one to the PB server requesting a screenshot you should get normal screenies in BC2 too.

Is procon running when you try it?

 

Do you have an account setup that is the exact same name as your ingame soldier?

 

Also, how do you know its not working? Are screenshots not appearing in the folder?

The issue are the usersettings, DX10 and DX11 Clients will return black screens. AFAIK this should fixed now but i never test it.

When it's not fixed u will only get black screenshots on BF3 because dx9 is not supported.

 

@Zaeed:

Do u make a loop with waits/tasks/sleeps for all clients or do u execute "PB_SV_GETSS" ?

On BC2 i got lags about 10 seconds with "PB_SV_GETSS", a loop with a singlescreenshot for all players would be perfect.

The makes of Punkbuster have also issued this statement:

 

"Black screenshots will happen if the videocard drivers are old, when the game is not the active application, or on some Operating System/videocard/driver combinations. Also, screenshot detour hacks could cause these black screenshots.

 

In summary, black screenshots might not be caused by cheats or hacks but checking all the videocard drivers and/or possibly directx drivers is advisable."

 

I have just a 20 or 25% of blackscreen on my BF3 server.

ah I wasn't aware of any lag.

 

I'll make some modifications and have it loop, only a couple of extra lines.

 

I'll also get it to send back some confirmation to the user indicating success/failure of the screenshots.

One more suggestion:

 

Include a list where we can include playernames and make automated screens of this players when they playing on the server. :biggrin:

Inside the BF3-Gameserver folder, there's a folder called "pb". Inside that folder, there's one called "pbss". Screenshots are normally stored there. You will have to check with your GSP to gain access.

Thanks to Phil for a bit of odd bug fixing.

I've just one doubt about it, hope you can help me on that.

 

If on a server i use @ss command it takes ss only at that time i execute the command or for some default time?

if i want to take ssfor 2 minutes over all the players on the server how can i use the commands for that?

If for some reason it stays always taking ss how do make it stop, if needed?

 

Many thanks.

As for taking screenshots over two minutes, you can do auto pb screenshots, google for what that command is..

 

This tool is designed for taking screenshots of players while you're in game, for the cases where you suspect a player of hacking, you can easily screenshot them without having to alt+tab out of the game

i think you can also get some php code that allows you to access the files from the web, i don't know anything about that though

Having your server at gamservers.com you have the option to access your pb screenshots through the gametracker listing of your server.

You should probably bring this issue up with your GSP. It recently came up with our GSP - NFO. Originally, NFO would not allow ftp access to the punkbuster folder but when someone pointed out that DICE did allow access, NFO set it up so we could download the files by ftp. They did have a WebSync program that would copy the files to a readily accessible folder each morning but you had to have web space with them for t hat to work.

 

Another option for screen shots is to use the actual punkbuser web tool - more info http://www.evenbalance.com/publications/et-ad/index.htm

  • Our picks

    • I wanted I let you know that I am starting to build out the foundation for the hosting services that I talked about here. The pricing model I was originally going for wasn't going to be suitable for how I want to build it. So instead I decided to offer each service as it's own product instead of a package deal. In the future, hopefully, I will be able to do this and offer discounts to those that choose it.

      Here is how the pricing is laid out for each service as well as information about each. This is as of 7/12/2020.

      Single MySQL database (up to 30 GB) is $10 USD per month.



      If you go over the 30 GB usage for the database then each additional gigabyte is charged at $0.10 USD each billing cycle. If you're under 30GB you don't need to worry about this.


      Databases are replicated across 3 zones (regions) for redundancy. One (1) on the east coast of the USA, One (1) in Frankfurt, and One (1) in Singapore. Depending on the demand, this would grow to more regions.


      Databases will also be backed up daily and retained for 7 days.




      Procon Layer will be $2 USD per month.


      Each layer will only allow one (1) game server connection. The reason behind this is for performance.


      Each layer will also come with all available plugins installed by default. This is to help facilitate faster deployments and get you up and running quickly.


      Each layer will automatically restart if Procon crashes. 


      Each layer will also automatically restart daily at midnight to make sure it stays in tip-top shape.


      Custom plugins can be installed by submitting a support ticket.




      Battlefield Admin Control Panel (BFACP) will be $5 USD per month


      As I am still working on building version 3 of the software, I will be installing the last version I did. Once I complete version 3 it will automatically be upgraded for you.





      All these services will be managed by me so you don't have to worry about the technical side of things to get up and going.

      If you would like to see how much it would cost for the services, I made a calculator that you can use. It can be found here https://ezrcon.com/calculator.html

    • I have pushed out a new minor release which updates the geodata pull (flags in the playerlisting). This should be way more accurate now. As always, please let me know if any problems show up.
