What Is Shrubbot

Shrubbot is an invention of Ryan Mannion. Shrubbot is an admin system that identifies the admin leveled players from PunkBuster GUIDs without the need for passwords. Shrubbot is also very flexible and allows creating many different admin levels with entirely different command sets. ETPub tries to clone shrubbot as accurately as possible, both in user interface and in the shrubbot configuration file called "shrubbot.cfg". silEnT shrubbot is based on the work of the ETPub team. silEnT extends the functionality of the shrubbot where ever it is needed. Including user database that holds all the players that have visited the server. To access this database, new commands have been added to the original shrubbot command set. Some commands have been renamed to ease their use and so that they resemble commands from other ET mods that have advanced admin systems.

If you want to use shrubbot, the cvar g_dbDirectory must be set. If it is not set, the shrubbot will not be in use. If you want to edit the default levels, you must create or copy existing shrubbot.cfg file to the folder defined by g_dbDirectory setting. In case shrubbot command like !ban is used against a player and shrubbot.cfg file does not already exist, a new shrubbot.cfg file is created to store the needed data.

The created file will also have the default level settings written to it. This file can be freely edited by hand and then after !readconfig command has been issued, the changes take effect on the server.

User Database & Commands

User database is intended to store information of all the players that connect to the server. To enable user database g_dbDirectory must be set. The database stores information to identify different players and also XP data, rating data, overall stats data and shrubbot admin data. PunkBuster GUIDs are used to identify single players. If a player joining the server doesn't have a PB GUID, data about that player can not be saved. However, the user database can still be used to store data of those players who have enabled punkbuster on the client side.

Shrubbot includes functionality for server admins to handle database userdata. All commands that handle users in the database will take the last 8 characters of the player PunkBuster GUID to identify the player to edit. This is not an unique identification but because EvenBalance has seen this to have enough uniqueness, it is good for the use of the database commands. Internally, the full GUID is used to identify the players.

 !aliasesdel

Command removes all the aliases from the player identified by the 8 character silEnT ID.

Syntax: !aliasesdel [silEnT ID]

Permission Flag: [

Requires g_tyranny: No

Minimum required version: 0.6.0

 !aliassearch

This command searches the whole aliases database for the pattern in the names. Note, this command is the most resource intensive shrubbot command of all commands, and it is not recommended to be used without a reason. How fast it performs in practice depends of the aliases database size.

For each player the following information is shown:

  • identity information (silEnT ID)
  • each used alias that fits the search pattern
  • for each alias when it was first seen
  • for each alias when it was last seen
  • for each alias the total playtime with it

To see all the aliases of the found player, you can use "!userinfo aliases" command. In the case of all the data not fitting in one page, you can give an optional start parameter. The start parameter corresponds to the numbers shown in the first column of the results. So that each player has its own number and under that number, all the matching aliases from that player are printed.

Syntax: !aliassearch [name] [start]

Permission Flag: ]

Requires g_tyranny: No

Minimum required version: 0.6.0

 !confirm

Confirms the player identity with a protected admin level. As a result, the confirmed player and the server will transfer authentication information allowing the player to use admin commands from thereafter. Unconfirmed players are players with admin level that is protected but the server can not ensure the identity. This usually happens when players admin level changes with offlinecommands or the protected levels are extended. This command does not give the player admin levels, it only confirms the identity of a player whos admin level is already set. Also, if the player loses his admin level identification, this command can not be used to reinstate it.

This command is safe to be given even to the lower levels of admins.

Syntax: !confirm [SLOT]

Permission Flag: :

Requires g_tyranny: No

Minimum required version: 0.5.0

 !userlist

Lists all users in the database. If PAGE is given, the list starts from that page. If PAGE is not given the first page of the database is printed. The command prints all users, including clients that have connected during the level time and are not yet in the database. The connected clients are always printed first and then the rest of the userbase.

The printed rows have the following columns:

  • '#' ; This is the serial number of the user in the printout. The number doesn't correspond to anything in the database.
  • 'silEnT ID' ; This is the 8 character silEnT GUID of the player. This is used to identify different players in the database.
  • 'PBGUID' ; This is the 8 character PB GUID of the user. This is used to identify different users in the database.
  • 'Last Seen' ; This tells how long time ago the user was last seen on the server. For connected clients, this will print "connected".
  • 'IP' ; This tells the last IP address user has had on the server.
  • 'Ban' ; This is the ban number if the player is banned from the server. If the player is whitelisted from IP bans, this column reads white capital W.
  • 'Name' ; This tells the last name with user has been saved on the server.


With userlist command an admin can list all the users saved in the database and those that are connected page by page. Optional page number can be given to the command to tell which page is to be displayed about the users. One page can have up to 20 players printed.

  • personal shrubbot flags
  • saved XP per skill
  • rating values
  • total kills and deaths with SMG weapons
  • the ban number of the player or whitelisting
  • list of stored aliases if the aliases database is enabled on the server

Command can optionally print player's stored aliases if the optional aliases parameter is given and the aliases database is enabled by setting g_dbMaxAliases to a positive integer. If printed aliases don't fit in one page, optional page parameter can be used to access different pages.

Command requires the last 8 characters of the player silEnT GUID. This GUID can be found with !userlist or !usersearch commands. This command works for both online and offline players.

Changelog:

  • 0.5.0 - The command now uses the last 8 characters of the silEnT GUID instead of the PB GUID. The backward compatible version of the command is named !userbanpb.

 !userwl

With this command admin can whitelist or remove whitelisting from any player. Whitelisting means that the player IP is not checked against any IP bans. Including subnet bans and individual bans.

Syntax: !userwl [silEnT GUID] [add|remove]

Permission Flag: .

Requires g_tyranny: No

Minimum required version: 0.4.0

 !userdelete

Command removes the user identified by the 8 character silEnT GUID from the database. The actual actions are taken at the level end if needed. However, once the !userdelete command has been issued to the user, the information of the user is no longer available and after the shutdown game, it is permanently lost.

If the removed player is connected to the server while removing, a new entry is written to that player.

Syntax: !userdelete [silEnT ID]

Permission Flag: [

Requires g_tyranny: No

Minimum required version: 0.2.0

Changelog:

  • 0.5.0 - The command now uses the last 8 characters of the silEnT GUID instead of the PB GUID. The backward compatible version of the command is named !userdeletepb.

 !usersearch

With this command an admin can search the database for players with specific parameters. Arguments to the command can be pattern in the name, user admin system level and the beginning of the IP address. Additional page number can be given when the amount of found results exceed what can be shown in one page. All the arguments can be given in one command in any order. Any one of the arguments can be omitted, but each time when command is given at least one argument on top of the optional page number must be given. This command searches stored information only from the database. Connected players are not included unless they are already stored into the database.

This command can be performance intensive and it is not recommended to use it only for maintenance operations. The command will internally always try to optimise itself. If the command is given repeatedly with same arguments but only changing the page number, new searches are not performed but only different pages of the already found results are displayed. The optimisations include that the silEnT will try to use the already found results as the basis for the new search (e.g. "!usersearch name gao" followed by "!usersearch name gaoe" will first search the whole db to find all users with the pattern gao in their names and the follow up search will refine the already found results for gaoe). The maximum amount of results one search can return is 256 users. Users are displayed in the console in pages with 20 users on each page.

Syntax: !usersearch [name (name)]|&[level (level)]|&[IP (IP)] [page]

Permission Flag: ]

Requires g_tyranny: No

Minimum required version: 0.2.0

 !updatepbguid

Updates the PB GUID that is stored in the database to the one which the player is currently using. With the exception that empty, invalid or dublicated PB GUIDs are not saved to the database.

Syntax: !updatepbguid [Name|Slot]

Permission Flag: ,

Requires g_tyranny: No

Minimum required version: 0.5.2

 !readadmins

With this command an admin can read admin definitions from a specific admins.cfg file. The file must be placed in the directory pointed by g_dbDirectory server cvar. The file may have only admin definition blocks. Admin definitions use always the following syntax. The syntax is exactly the same used by the ETPub.

[admin]

name = name of the admin (can be left empty)
sguid = full 32 character silEnT GUID (this field is used to identify players in the database)
guid = full 32 character PB GUID (this field is used to identify players in the database)
level = level number
flags = personal admin flags (can be left empty)
greeting = personal greeting (can be left empty)
greeting_sound = path to personal greeting sound (can be left empty)


If the database doesn't yet have the player, it will be added there. Those players will have the last seen field reading NEVER with !userlist and !usersearch command outputs. If the player already exists in the database, the admin values will be overwritten with the ones in read from the admins.cfg file.

Syntax: !readadmins

Permission Flag: )

Requires g_tyranny: No

Minimum required version: 0.3.0

Change Log:

  • Starting from silEnT 0.5.0, the field sguid was added to the admin blocks. This allows adding admins using the silEnT GUIDs to identify them.

Example::


[admin]
name = ETPlayer
sguid = 12345678912345678912345678912345
guid = 98765432198765432198765432198765
level = 5
flags =
greeting =
greeting_sound =

[admin]

sguid = 98765432198765432198765432198765
guid = 12345678912345678912345678912345
level = 3
flags = AbC
greeting =
greeting_sound =

 !resetpls

With this command an admin can reset all stored statistics from an online or an offline player. The stored statistics include total SMG kills and deaths, the player K/D rating and PRW rating.

Syntax: !resetpls [silEnT ID]

Permission Flag: (

Requires g_tyranny: No

Minimum required version: 0.3.0

Changelog:

  • 0.5.0 - the command was changed to use silEnT ID instead of the last 8 characters of the PB GUID. There is no backward compatible command for PB GUIDs.

Shrubbot Files

To use shrubbot the g_dbDirectory must be set. All the shrubbot files are placed into that directory.

shrubbot.cfg

Shrubbot.cfg is the file that holds all the level definitions, custom commands, bans, warns and subnetbans for the server shrubbot. These configuration settings are hand editable. If the shrubbot.cfg file does not exists when !ban or!setlevel is used, a new one with default settings is created. The settings in the shrubbot.cfg are divided into following data blocks.


[level]

level = The level number.

name = The nameof the level used in e.g. !list command.

flags = The permission flags for the level.

greeting = The greetingtext that is displayed to every player joining the server with this level.

greeting_sound = The greeting sound played for every playerjoining the server with this level.


[command]

command = The name of the command.

exec = The executed command. These must be commands available to /rcon and these will be executed with rcon privileges.

desc = The help description of the cmmand.

levels = Space separated list of levels this command is allowed.


  • The exec field in the command block can use all the shortcuts that silEnT support. The shortcut is substituted as the command would have been a say from the player who issued the command. In addition to normal shortcuts, it is possible to use [i] which is replaced with the client number of the player who did the command.
  • The exec field in the command block can additionally use parameter placeholders. These are [1] - [9] where the number is the n:th parameter given to the custom command. When these are used, the server will substitute the placeholder with the n:th parameter given to the command.
  • Starting from silEnT 0.2.1, it is possible to add '?' to the parameter placeholders. This will make the server substitute the given string to a player name if only one player matches the string. For example:


[command]

command = crybaby

exec = playsound path/to/sound.wav; chat ^7[1?]^7 is crying like a little baby!

desc = Make someone cry

levels = 0 1 2 3 4 5


[ban]

name = The name of the banned player.

guid = The PunkBuster GUID of the banned player.

sguid = The silEnT GUID if the banned player.

ip = The IP address of the banned player.

reason = The reason for the ban.

made = The time and date when the ban was issued.

expires = When the ban will expire.

banner = The name of the admin who banned the player.

ident = The silEnT ident if available.


[subnetban]

subnet = The subnet of the ban.

reason = The reason for the ban.

made = The time and date when the subnet ban was created.

expires = When the ban will expire.

banner = The name of the admin who created the ban.


[warning]

name = The name of the warned player.

guid = The silEnT GUID of the warned player.

ip = The IP addressof the warned player.

warning = The reason of the warning.

made = The time when the warning was made.

warner = The name of the player who warned.


[customvote]

name = The of the vote shown with the /callvote command. Maximum length 15 characters.

exec = Command string to execute if the vote passes. Maximum length 1023 characters.

description = Description of the vote shown with the /callvote command. Maximum length 1023 characters.

votetext = The text that is show for voters. Maximum length 255 characters.

passtext = Optionally, a text that is shown to players if the vote passes.

levels = Optionally, admins can define the vote to be available to only specific levels. Same format that is used with the custom commands.

userdb.db

This is a file where the silEnT stores information of the players. This file is not hand editable. By editing this file by hand you risk it getting corrupted or causing error conditions. The silEnT will automatically identify this file version for different silEnT versions and if necessary silEnT will convert the file to a newer version. The old file will be always stored at the g_dbDirectory location with a _vxx added to it's name.

If silEnT finds this file to be corrupted or unusable, it will not overwrite it. It will only refuse to initialize the shrubbot and therefore you must look at the logs if you encounter any problems with shrubbot. The error messages in the log are usually very descriptive.

userxdb.db

This is a file where the silEnT stores information of the players which is not needed for the most players. This file is not hand editable. By editing this file by hand you risk it getting corrupted or causing error conditions. The silEnT will automatically identify this file version for different silEnT versions and if necessary silEnT will convert the file to a newer version. The old file will be always stored at the g_dbDirectory location with a _vxx added to it's name.

If silEnT finds this file to be corrupted or unusable, it will not overwrite it. It will only refuse to initialize the shrubbot and therefore you must look at the logs if you encounter any problems with shrubbot. The error messages in the log are usually very descriptive.

useradb.db

Starting from silEnT 0.6.0, this file holds the optional aliases database. To enable the database, g_dbMaxAliases cvar must be set to a positive integer. The aliases database can be disabled by setting g_dbMaxAliases to 0 value at any time and then re-enable the database by setting the value back to a positive integer without any effect to the file. However, if the g_dbMaxAliases cvar is set to a smaller value then it was before, the aliases that exceed the threshold will be lost unrecoverably.

This file is not hand editable. By editing this file by hand you risk it getting corrupted or causing error conditions. The silEnT will automatically identify this file version for different silEnT versions and if necessary silEnT will convert the file to a newer version. The old file will be always stored at the g_dbDirectory location with a _vxx added to it's name.

If silEnT finds this file to be corrupted or unusable, it will not overwrite it. The error messages in the log are usually very descriptive about the erros.
