Installation instructions
1. Copy the new ptb.cfg to addons/amxmodx/configs/
2. Copy ptb.sma to addons/amxmodx/scripting/ and compile it
3. Copy the compiled file ptb.amxx from the compiled folder to the plugins folder.
4. Add a line ptb.amxx to your amxmodx plugins.ini

5. Edit ptb.cfg to suit your needs (Good settings for a 20 player server):
Code:
amx_ptb maxsize      11  // maximum team size per team 
amx_ptb maxdiff      2  // maximum team size difference
or maybe
Code:
amx_ptb maxsize      12  // maximum team size per team 
amx_ptb maxdiff      4  // maximum team size difference
The forumla to make it fit your server:
amx_ptb maxsize should be set at maxplayers/2 + amx_ptb maxdiff/2
NOTE: Certain maps like nuke,train, militia and italy only has 10 spawns/team.

6. Enable the required module cstrike in modules.ini or PTB wont load properly


DONE

Good Luck!

Regarding ptb_transfer_type, can anyone describe more aggressive transfer? How would this perform vs. default? Basically what does it do that is different from before.

With more aggressive transfers it transfers one player to the other team rather than just swithing 2 players.
This makes the losing team get one more player and the winning team 1 less.
The default setting almost always swith 2 players and almost always doesn't do any effect to balance the team.

I use ptb_transfer_type 3 on my own server.

Hope that explains it

Thx Lantz and that does help. A few people observed something last night and I wanted to let you know: when PTB decided to switch a live player, the process would start about 1-2 seconds before actual round end. Several people indicated they saw a person change from a CT to a T just before round end....giving in some cases enough time for a CT to kill the switched player who just found themselves amongst enemies and not even know it . Most of the time it happened too fast to be an issue, but there is apparently room for it to cause a problem at some point if there is time for you to observe the player morphing to another team. I personally never got a chance to see it, but some of my admins did.
