g_identOptions Description Starting from version 0.3.0, the silEnT mod can be configured to enforce bans using hardware based identification. This is not any fool proof system but it is made to be an addition to the already existing ban methods. The hardware identification cannot be seen in human readable form by admins while on the server. The data that is sent to the server can be seen in the client by making /cg_ident in the console. That is a hexadecimal string which changes its value between maps. The format and data used to create the client Identification may change between the versions of the silEnT mod. The server can be configured with the g_identOptions server cvar.
What determines the string? HDD? Ethernet card? Some combination of devices?
