Is there a way to allow an IP address through silentmod anticheat?  For example a friend of mine has a guid ban from silentmod but I manually keep having to remove the ban when he joins.  Can I register his IP somewhere on the server to have this automatically done?

 

Also, is there a way to edit the user.db from linux shell?  It appears to be a binary file now making shell scripting a bit of a pain.

No and no. How would you shell script the user database? The question sounds weird.

LOL, this sounds like: "we don't allow cheaters, but our cheating friends are OK" :P

Thanks for the awesome support.  I asked a legit question and got a slew of troll answers.  I run a server for myself and friends and if my friend was an idiot testing hacks well that's his own stupidity but I am not going to disable your features just for 1 friend - unless I absolutely have to.  I did not start this thread to start a flaming competition on who has the better opinion on cheaters.   And I am not running my server for you guys I'm running it for me so if I see value in a feature there is no need to argue that you don't see the same need - to each's own.  We all have our own opinions. 

 

Again, is there any means to automatically allow 1 specific IP or GUID past the silentmod anticheat or do I need to continue manually typing !unban 1 every single map?  

 

My other question was about the user.db as in jaymod I could open that in vi editor off linux.  Now it appears to be a binary file and I was hoping somebody would have a trick on editing these files off the command line.  I shouldn't have mentioned shell scripting - now that I know I would have been flamed for even suggesting it.

The answer is still the same as in my first post. Neither is possible. If you would have been clearer on what you wish to edit in the database someone might have been able to help you reach a solution. There is a !readadmins command that can be used to read some admin data from a cfg file and/or you could create Lua script that can access text files and modify the database to some extent. Asking about if there is a way to shell script the user database files sounds quite a bit of an XY problem. http://xyproblem.info/

"and if my friend was an idiot testing hacks", so if it's a past what is a problem? I'm guessing that silent anticheat bans only when someone has enabled a cheat, there is no any returning bans afaik. So after you'v unbanned him everything should be fine? Isn't it? or hes still cheating and you with him just want to have a fun?

If you're letting one cheater to play with you, I cannot see any problem, just disable the anticheat and allow everyone to play.

>>  Neither is possible.

Sorry I missed that among all the flaming.  

 

I understand your points but I shouldn't have to get flamed for wanting to do something regardless if people agree with it or not.  If the feature doesnt exist then I guess I will find a workaround myself.  Disabling anticheat was not an option I was looking for but I may have to if further problems arise. I will have to work with him to bypass your anticheat which I already know is possible from testing other friends of mine have done against your mod.  Mind you, your anticheat is the best ive seen out yet so kudos for that.  My friend isnt a cheater and tests alot of mods hacks and other tools which is good for us because it helps a lot of us in our circle better understand what hacks to watch out for.  Anyways, seems the feature isnt available.  Thanks for confirming

 

So as of current there is no tool or method to manually edit the user.db outside of !commands, lua or rcon?  Can anybody maybe suggest a linux tool that might work?

Good one, I wonder how are you gonna recognize these cheats after "testing" them, thought that every multihack in ET is kinda same. Well trolled.

I think you can just add in "/your_server/silent/mapconfigs/default.cfg" 

 

"unban 1"

You are known for running tj bots in the tj community.  I don't judge you for that (assuming the rumor is true) just like I don't judge my close friends.  Regardless.  Was only looking for help, not everybody's belief system.

I think that would do it.  Huge thanks.
