Version 1.1. small bug fix, parameter added.
Author: flying_popcorn + code from playerHistoryTracker
Description: This auto kicks/bans F5ers
Min Version: idk...tested in 2.0.10 but i assume it will work in earlier versions
Files: Attached is the plugin source

After 4 F5s, it will warn the player. 4 more, and it will kick them. If they rejoin and F5 4 more times, it will ban them for 1 day.

If they don't F5 for 8 minutes, their F5 counter will get reset.

1 parameter: How many f5's before warn/kick/ban. Defaults to 4.

Caution: I tested it to make sure it works. It appears to work perfectly. But, if there is a bug, it could be bad if it bans people.

New version... 1.1
Now has a parameter for how many F5's before warn/kick/ban.
Also a small bug fix.

I wanted to add more parameters, like ban length, but I can't find a good way to split the parameter string :(

It watches for the paused event. A quick pause is probably a screenshot.

Here's a Windows build for the plugin if anyone cares.

Built with BZFlag 2.0.10 API and VC++8
It compiles, but I dont know if it works.

Honestly not even sure this one does anything anymore. The screenshot code was redone to use a thread years ago so it wouldn't cause the issue with the tank passing through solid objects. I'm thinking we also don't trigger a pause when we screenshot anymore.

I've done a few screenshots on this game before, but I don't remember the game pausing at all to take the screenshot. It may have done so in the past, but that was years ago, probably before I even started playing this game. However, I have an idea. :arrow: We could possibly keep the plugin for a while just to see if it actually still works, and if people still do the F5 thing. However, if no one gets warned or kicked by it, then it could be time to figure out something else for this plugin. This part is up to you admins.

I wish I could be playing the game right now with you guys, but for now, I cannot, and must remain within forums. Keep on battling!

It basically is not useful these days, but might be useful as a template for other things.
I have a few ideas, so you might see some interesting things come from me in the future.

There are some other things we do, but we don't talk much (in public) about exactly how we do cheat detection.
A couple weeks ago I found out I was using something new for over six months, and I didn't even know about it. They snuck it in on me.
