0 for disabling all ptb chat messages
1 for enabling all ptb chat messages (Default)
2 Transfers will show as hudmessage and in chat
3 Shows all messages in chat and transfers in hudtext
1 PTBs original transfertype (Default)
2 a little more agressive than 1
3 the most agressive transfer

This makes the losing team get one more player and the winning team 1 less.
The default setting almost always swith 2 players and almost always doesn't do any effect to balance the team.
0 admins with immunity will be switched.
1 admins with immunity will be protected from switches. (Default)
0 admins with immunity will not be able to choose any team they want.
1 admins with immunity can choose any team they want. (Default)
Here you set which flag an admin must have to be immune against transfers (Default o ADMIN_LEVEL_C)
Here you set which flag an admin must have to be able to change PTB settings (Default l ADMIN_RCON)
If you want to see Transfers made in the HLSW chat have this set to 1
1. Copy the new ptb.cfg to addons/amxmodx/configs/
2. Copy ptb.sma to addons/amxmodx/scripting/ and compile it
3. Copy the compiled file ptb.amxx from the compiled folder to the plugins folder.
4. Add a line ptb.amxx
to your amxmodx plugins.ini
5. Edit ptb.cfg to suit your needs (Good settings for a 20 player server):
amx_ptb maxsize 11 // maximum team size per team
amx_ptb maxdiff 2 // maximum team size difference
amx_ptb maxsize 12 // maximum team size per team
amx_ptb maxdiff 4 // maximum team size difference
The forumla to make it fit your server:
amx_ptb maxsize should be set at maxplayers/2 + amx_ptb maxdiff/2
Certain maps like nuke,train, militia and italy only has 10 spawns/team.
6. Enable the required module cstrike
in modules.ini or PTB wont load properly
