You make yourself look like an idiot by saying this.
I don't really know, it is for you to decide.

Not really, the most people wouldn't go further then hexing the dll, but disassamble it and searching for a num that they haven't heard of, is too much work.

Wow. I was about to talk to BAIL about this concept. But it actually queries the forums MySQL database for the author's username (or nick if there was an option added), to make sure the plugin hasn't been changed nor can players with the wrong STEAM_ID even use their names in game.

Sure there is. You can disassemble any .dll or .so and with enough knowledge you could find out (via debugging) where the check takes place. I personally have made a disassembler for .qvms, and while not as feature-rich as a usual disassembler, it does the job.

You could still change it if you know what you're doing. Assuming you were using strcmp to check the strings for equality, the code would comapre the result of strcmp with 0. If the values are both 0, then the strings are equal. If it's not, they are not equal. All you would need to do is change the op that does the comparison to check if they're not equal (i.e. if strcmp returned -1 or 1). I don't know the AMX opcode set off hand, but it is doable.

Hi cybermind, i remember you from QMM,
but you have made q3 mods before, and you also know when adding one character too many, it will crash(when hexing a dll).
And like i said, i don't think people will take that much effort to completely dissamble a mod just to change it's name. But it's just too easy now, that's why i had figure out how to make a simple check.

As far as AMXX plugins, isn't there a way to fetch the name from the internet, by using a plugin ID?
