Advanced Bans (Real Time)
by Exolent

  • This plugin revamps the current amx_ban, amx_banip, amx_banid, amx_unban admin commands.
  • It uses Real Time on the server (Eg. Banned for 10 minutes, you will be unbanned 10 minutes later, regardless of map changing).
  • It includes a list of who is banned.
  • It does not use the banned.cfg or listip.cfg. It uses its own file where bans are stored.
  • It saves what admin banned the player (name), the admin's steamid, the reason, the ban time, the banned player's name, the banned player's steamid (or IP), and the estimated time of unban.
  • It will load your currently banned players from the banned.cfg and listip.cfg files. (Only if the #define at the top of the plugin is uncommented)
  • If you use the menu to ban players, you will have to type a reason after you choose a player.
  • If you use the vote system to ban players, you will have to type a reason after you execute the amx_voteban command.
  • You can limit the ban time for admins based on their admin flags.
  • You can monitor all ban history (admins banning, unbanning, and when ban times are up) in the addons/amxmodx/logs/BAN_HISTORY_MMDDYYYY.log (MM = month, DD = day, YYYY = year)
  • If you wish to have only 1 file for ban history, uncomment the line at the top of the .sma file and recompile.
  • SQL is also supported and works for multiple servers. If you use the same SQL database for more than 1 server, then those servers will share the ban list.
  • For SQL, the default cvars for the SQL database will be used (amx_sql_host, amx_sql_user, amx_sql_pass, amx_sql_db).

  • amx_ban <nick, #userid, authid> <time in minutes> <reason>
  • amx_banip <nick, #userid, authid> <time in minutes> <reason>
  • amx_addban <name> <authid or ip> <time in minutes> <reason>
  • amx_unban <authid or ip>
  • amx_banlist
    - Shows a list of who is banned
  • amx_addbanlimit <flags> <time in minutes>
    - Adds a max ban time to the list
    - Note: Use this command in the amxx.cfg

  • ab_website <website>
    • This is the website displayed to the banned player if you have an unban request section on your website.
    • Leave blank to not show a website.
    • Default: blank
  • ab_immunity <0|1|2>
    • 0 - Any admin can ban an immunity admin (flag 'a').
    • 1 - Immunity admins (flag 'a') cannot be banned.
    • 2 - Immunity admins (flag 'a') can only be banned by other immunity admins (flag 'a').
    • Default: 1
  • ab_bandelay <seconds>
    • Delay of banned players being disconnected.
    • Default: 1
  • ab_unbancheck <seconds>
    • Interval of checking if a player is unbanned.
    • Default: 5

  • AMX Mod X version 1.8.1 or higher
    - If you must use an earlier version, look at the top of the plugin:
    // if you must have a maximum amount of bans to be compatible with AMXX versions before 1.8.0 // change this number to your maximum amount // if you would rather have unlimited (requires AMXX 1.8.0 or higher) then set it to 0 #define MAX_BANS 0
    Then recompile the plugin.

How To Use:
  1. Get Plugin for all 3 plugins at the bottom of this post. (If you want SQL, get advanced_bans_sql. Otherwise, use advanced_bans.
  2. Place the advanced_bans.amxx, plmenu.amxx, and adminvote.amxx files in your server's addons/amxmodx/plugins folder.
    - Note: You must overwrite your old plmenu.amxx and adminvote.amxx files.
  3. Open the plugins.ini from your server's addons/amxmodx/configs folder.
  4. Add advanced_bans.amxx at the top of the file!!!
  5. Make sure that plmenu.amxx and adminvote.amxx are enabled.
  6. Save and close the file.
  7. Place advanced_bans.txt from the bottom of this post in your server's addons/amxmodx/data/lang folder.
  8. Change the map or restart your server.

Ban Menu Plugin
  • The plmenu.sma has been edited to work with Advanced Bans.
  • Download the one that corresponds to the one you use:
    • plmenu_ab_base.sma - Edited version from the base plmenu.sma
    • plmenu_ab_dod.sma - Edited version from the DOD plmenu.sma
    • plmenu_ab_tfc.sma - Edited version from the TFC plmenu.sma
  • For those using the DOD or TFC versions, I have added the dynamic bantimes and slap amounts that existed in the base version but not in your mod-specific versions.

Adding Max Ban Times:
  • The order in which you add ban limits is the order in which they are checked.
    - Example: If you do:

    amx_addbanlimit "b" "9000"
    amx_addbanlimit "c" "4000"

    - Then if a player has flags "b" and "c", then only "b" will be used.
  • If you want immunity to have no limit, but other admins to have it, then add this FIRST! to the amxx.cfg

    amx_addbanlimit "a" "0"

  • Romanian by rekull
  • Finnish by SnoW

  • Add ban limits per admin flags

Re: Advanced Bans (Real Time)
You need to place advances_bans.amxx in your users file?

Exolent[jNr] 11-22-2008 17:39

Re: Advanced Bans (Real Time)
Thanks for catching that! It should be plugins.ini.

Re: Advanced Bans (Real Time)
I've never used AMXBans, nor have I looked at it.
What is the purpose of AMXBans?
