How many ways can an Admin ban a player?
« on: November 21, 2010, 02:04:43 pm »
Title suggests. I am aware that they can ID ban, GUID ban, IP ban, HDD ban, and GFX ban, but are there other darker ways of banning too?

What is the most common way of banning in Arma 2/OA. And what differences do the bans use on each game? What steps does an admin take to ban a hacker?

The only two that would be in use in ArmA are the pid bans and the BE GUID bans.

Pid bans involve the admin logging in ingame and typing #exec ban <player

BE GUID bans involve them logging into the be rcon I think

You Can Not:

Well, you can not currently. Who knows?

True, BE GUID ban is possible only via rcon.

But if you disabled BE somehow, the couldnt ban you, could they? (would be like stabbing a person in the heart, only to find out they were a zombie  :icon_laugh)

If you ignore your ban possibly.

Or if you send a false GUID. It's up to you to get creative.

Probably because theres a checksum on it that the BE serverside module checks. Must just ignore the packet if you didn't get it right.

Funny, on one server, I get the "You were banned" screen even though I changed my ID a number of times in WPE.

No, I am changing it right (with that it works on other servers and shows the false ID in the packet). Would it be an auto-ban feature for edited files?

It was the way the OP stated the question.

They can only ban you if you let them.
