    Spray Block (l4d_spray_block) by Mystik Spiral

    Blocks client sprays.
    It is suggested to also set the following in the server.cfg file:

    Code:
    sm_cvar sv_allowupload 0
    sm_cvar sv_allowdownload 0
    Although many players have interesting sprays, there are an increasing number of players/griefers who are using custom sprays that are unbelievably disgusting or hateful/political in nature. So much so that I decided to just block all sprays as I am tired of people trying to ruin the fun and enjoyment of playing L4D(2).

    I suspect there are similar plugins out there somewhere, but this is what I'm using and thought I would share. I am not taking feature requests at this time, but please let me know if it is not working and/or you get any errors.

    There is Spray Exploit Fixer where you could block everyone except those with specific flags from using sprays. Also checks and prevents sprays which exploit bugs in the game and crashes clients. Don't know why you would say this is for L4D/2 only since it's not.

    Afaik you should also do "#include <sdktools>" and not "#include <sdktools_tempents>" because if no other plugin is using sdktools then that extension won't be loaded with the latter style include.

    It probably would work with just about any Source game, but I only have L4D2, so that is all I'm going to support.

    Thanks for the link to the other plugin. I wanted to keep my plugin very simple and don't plan to add any features to it...it just blocks all sprays. If you feel it is too similar to other plugins, I will not object to it being removed... I just wanted to share what I'm using in case anyone else wants to use it too.
