Update (8/12): Some unknown author used Oshizu's codes and made bootleg unofficial plugins.
It's not Oshizu. Sorry!
And FUCK YOU to whoever made this bootleg plugin under Oshizu's credit.
Seriously, go fuck your self.

Update (8/13): Found the bootleg author.
Update (8/13 #2): Found another bootleg illegal plugin.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I'm reporting this plugin on behalf of another person who purchased this following plugin (with actual money) without receiving source code file(sp).
This unknown author made bootleg plugins under Oshizu's credits and charging people money without including any source files.

When I made this person to confront the author into giving him the sp files, author did not reply.
He is even refusing to accept his friend invitation as of right now. (not Oshizu)

And as we all already know, free or purchased, not releasing the original source file is illegal under the GPL.
While the author's intention might not have been malicious, due to the possibility of having backdoors and other harmful functions without the server owner's acknowledgements, this type of violation of GPL needs to be stopped whenever found.

Hopefully, this will change thes author's mind about sharing the source code next time.

I have attached the SMX and decompiled version in txt file.
So far, I don't see any back doors or anything harmful but, the plugin requires some "core" plugins which MIGHT have those kind of backdoor systems.
I will not be able to know for sure unless author is pressured into releasing all the related sp files to all clients which he made sales to...

PS:
If you are the author reading this, please know that I don't hate you.
I don't have anything against you.
But taking advantage of people that just don't know any better is fucked up.
if you are worried about your clients distributing your plugins, just don't sell them.
Or at least, sell them to people you can trust.

PS(8/12):
Actually, fuck you.

First things first, I didn't write that plugin neither did I sell it.
Plugin itself seems to contain copy of my public one, or its mix of few plugin codes with addition of poorly made !vip menu
Hence the
PHP Code:
public Plugin:myinfo =
{
    
name "[TF2] Halloween Footprints",
    
description "Looks Fancy Ahhhh",
    
author "Oshizu",
    
version "1.0",
    
url "www.otaku-gaming.net"
}; 
Which probably comes from https://forums.alliedmods.net/showthread.php?t=233589

And whole plugin is in korean, im neither korean nor do I know it
from decompiled code:
PHP Code:
    SetMenuTitle(menu"언 유 도 발");
    
AddMenuItem(menu"0""도발효과x"0);
    
AddMenuItem(menu"1""분위기 종결자-RED"0);
    
AddMenuItem(menu"2""분위기 종결자-BLUE"0);
    
AddMenuItem(menu"3""성배"0); 
dbg symbols of smx:
PHP Code:
"C:\Users\??????\Desktop\????\include\core.inc" 
If that were indeed my plugin then it wouldn't have been in korean unless the person that purchased it had .sp aswell and changed strings and compiled it on his pc.

I don't see any messages on my alliedmodders account or steam profile from you either.
If someone sold you plugin without .smx then you should contact authorities, you've sent them money, you've got their bank/payment info, right?

As much as I'd like to clear this up, I'm quite busy with real life these days and I don't have time for dramas, since I wasn't even one who made or sold it, then its not my problem. Sorry.

Huh...
If that's the case, my apology.
And no.
It wasn't me that bought it.
It's some person I know who did that.

So, it's some third party who modified your plugins and distributed without source files then...
I'll look into who this unofficial author is.

To be more clear, this person I'm trying to help is... 'slow' when it comes to giving me straight fucking answers to the point it's pissing me off right now and kinda makes me regret helping him.
His purchased plugins were making dumb errors but couldn't do anything about it cuz he did not receive the sp file.
When I asked him to confront the seller, he just simply replied "he's ignoring"
He didn't tell me or linked me who he was so I thought it was you (by looking at myinfo)

TL;DR

1. Person 'A' purchased this plugin
2. It broke
3. Raritylicious tried to help and fix
4. no sp
5. Raritylicious told 'A' to confront the seller
6. Seller ignored
7. Raritylicious thought the seller was Oshizu because of myinfo

Update: 8/13

I found out who this unknown bootleg author is.

And to Oshizu, my deepest, fullest apology.
I'm really sorry for the wrong accusations.
I should have been more patient and verified my information.

Update: 8/13 #2

I found a secondary illegal bootleg plugin.
Illegal as in no source code file provided to the people who paid for it.
File is attached above.
