I am writing an extension and am hooking a function that is only passed a CTFPlayer * as a parameter. Does anyone know how to get player info from it, such as steam id / ip address / userid, etc?

And conversely, is there a way to get the CTFPlayer * from a player's userid? Thanks.

In case somebody needs it. The pointer can be cast to IServerEntity. This interface has a method to get the entity index:
(IServerEntity -> IServerUnknown -> IHandleEntity -> GetRefEHandle)
const CBaseHandle& baseHandle = baseEntity_->GetRefEHandle();
int index = baseHandle.GetEntryIndex();

Then the info can be received this way:
IGamePlayer * player = playerhelpers->GetGamePlayer(index);
