    Introduction

    Simply blocks known Cheater catched by SMAC (Sourcemod Anti Cheat) from your server.
    If a client connects on your server it sends the STEAM_ID to our API.
    Then our API checks whether there is a positiv match in our database.
    If so, the client will be kicked.
    Already checked players are cached to prevent unnecessary load and traffic.

    Installation

    Get one of the following extensions for SourceMod : Curl or Socket
    If you want to autoupdate the Plugin you can download the Sourcemod Auto updater : Updater
    Upload the downladed archive onto your gameserver.
    Load the plugin via sm_plugins reload or do a mapchange.
    A smacban-block.cfg will be created in : addons/sourcemod/config
    Edit the config ( if needed ).

    Upgrade


    Replace "smacbans-block.smx" in "addons/sourcemod/plugins" with the new version.

    So our database have a lot of valid cheaters banned from
    trusted communitys.

    One day we decided to transfer the bans automatically.

    After some times to we have decided to share our banlist.

    it seems like everything now days requires the use of an api for some reason. what happens if you guys decide to abandon it or stop support? are everyone out of luck unless someone pick it up?? or am i not udnerstanding how api's are for?

    The API is used as INTERFACE between our database and the banquery to ceck if a ID is baned.
    It prevents a direct access to our database.

    thank you for explaining. but i do not use this because i do not know if i can trust the trusted members who maintain this list. often these things start out with good entensions but then they get sloppy and start to ban people they do not like because there is no way to contest the addition of someone to the system and everyone just assumes the trusted members that add them is justifiable . i have seen it go on in a lot of gaming services so i speak from experiences

    but any API key will work even a generic one that all can use rather than registering for one.

    Isn't this whole system redundant though? I mean everyone that has been caught by SMAC on our servers usually get VAC banned a few days/weeks/months later so I don't really see a need for something like this. i know theres alot of hackers in tf2 especially but not so many that they arrive in boatloads

    i know you guys have a very tight nit group of trusted people but like i said early that tends to fall apart sooner or later. this is why we dont use sourcerep bans from anyone but our very own because everything is taintable especially in gaming

    Thx

    But VAC is not perfect.
    There are too many cheats does not dedected from VAC.

    We are no less trusted than other Banlists.

    Originally, the list was meant only for us.
    Now we decided to share it.

    No one is forced to install our plugin.
    But it helps against cheater!

    And the Cheater gets banned instantly on all other servers running smacbans and cant play 3 other month in addition.
    The main idea behind is to prevent that a player gets caught by SMAC canīt join to the next server and the next... and so on .... till he found a server without SMAC.
    If he gets banned on one server, he cant play anymore on all server running smacbans and like Popoklopsi said.
    We have now nearly 60.000 Blocks that means that 60.000 times a known cheater could not connect to a protected server.
    Actually 250 Gameserver are using our block-plugin. No Problems until today.

    Numbers doesnīt lie =)
