I'll try getting that sig again, and update if it's wrong. It's the gamedata that's the issue, not a binary issue.

EDIT:
Found a better sig i think. Just downloaded the windows server and the new sig loads fine for me (the old one, as you said, crashed). I attached the new gamedata file to this post, and pushed it to the repo

This is near identical to the one I made a while ago.
The only difference is, since in some situations this still balances, I prevent it from even seeing the player. To do this, replace your IsAlive detour with one for CBasePlayer *CTeam::GetPlayer(int iIndex)

These sigs are what I got a long time ago, and haven't broken since... so maybe they would work good for you:
Code:
"Games"
{
    "tf"
    {
        "Signatures"
        {
            "BalanceTeams"
            {
                "library"    "server"
                "windows"    "\xA1\x2A\x2A\x2A\x2A\x83\xEC\x1C\x55\x33"
                "linux"        "_ZN24CTeamplayRoundBasedRules12BalanceTeamsEb"
            }
            "TeamGetPlayer"
            {
                "library"    "server"
                "windows"    "\x8B\x81\x14\x03\x00\x00\x8B\x4C\x24\x04"
                "linux"        "_ZN5CTeam9GetPlayerEi"
            }
        }
    }
}
Also, in your code, completely irrelevant, but you have bool unknown, that's bRequireSwitcheesToBeDead
So, you may expect, if that's false, then IsAlive method just doesn't work.

So if bRequireSwitcheesToBeDead magically happens to be true when BalanceTeams is called in the detour, then the current method of whether or not the player is alive should be sufficient.

Hopefully.... but when I did that, the guy that I made it for kept complaining that his donators were still being switched sometimes.
I guess if everyone on the team just happens to be dead it ignores that? I can't remember, it's been a while since I looked at the code.

Not sure, but if you do end up having trouble, you now have another method ;-)

Nice work. There are some private extensions similar to this that have existed for a long time that handle all aspects of valves auto-balancing and immunities. Ive always wanted to get my hands on it but havnt been able to.

There are some features from these extensions id like to request maybe...

1) Cvar for specifying class immunities. Some way to give immunity for lets say, medics and engineers. Very important and one thing some plugins and valves auto-balance fail to account for.

2) Some of the private extensions prevent players from switching back for X cvar specified amount of seconds. This would also be a awesome feature. (I realize this may not be relative to this extensions function though)

If you could implement class immunities to go with admin immunities, that would be amazing....

It's easy to do if you know how to code plugins. I'm working on class immunities now, and I'll get to enforcement soon.

EDIT: Class immunity attached to this post.
EDIT EDIT: fixed for newer version of extension

Code:
// This file was auto-generated by SourceMod (v1.3.2)
// ConVars for plugin "classimmunity.smx"


// Admin flags for immunity based on admin - if no flag is set then admins will not receive immunity
// -
// Default: "s"
tbi_adminflags "s"

// Give immunity to demomen
// -
// Default: "0"
tbi_demomen "0"

// Give immunity to engineers
// -
// Default: "0"
tbi_engineer "0"

// Give immunity to heaviess
// -
// Default: "0"
tbi_heavy "0"

// Give immunity to medics
// -
// Default: "0"
tbi_medic "0"

// Give immunity to pyros
// -
// Default: "0"
tbi_pyro "0"

// Give immunity to scouts
// -
// Default: "0"
tbi_scout "0"

// Give immunity to snipers
// -
// Default: "0"
tbi_sniper "0"

// Give immunity to soldiers
// -
// Default: "0"
tbi_soldier "0"

// Give immunity to spies
// -
// Default: "0"
tbi_spy "0"

Cool thx. I was thinking you would have to edit the extension for that, but I guess you got it set up so you can use the forwards with the plugin. I guess I should read the OP better. I could have easily done that myself, sorry. Anyways thx.

Ill probably recode that a bit to use some bools for checking admin flag ahead of time. Also may make some globals for the cvars.


Also, minor error, you forgot to change the cvar handles in pluginstart. You have most of the class ones as soldier.
