Dedicated server help
I started up a dedicated server for my clan yesterday. Everyone was able to get in (as well as about 20 players who just stumbled across the server randomly and joined) without incident except for one player. I got a message on the console saying he had modified files @HiFi, which is some sound mod he uses. He got a message saying he was banned.
We had a few problems with people getting kicked for addons, that I was able to solve by adding addons to the server.exe target via "Tophe's ArmA 2 Dedicated Server Tool."
First, I tried adding the @HiFi crap to my directory, and adding it to the server mod list. That didn't work. Then I tried to have him remove all files from his ArmA 2 directory that weren't vanilla, and that didn't work. I had him reinstall ArmA 2, and that didn't work.
So finally, I reinstalled ArmA 2, because I couldn't find anything in files saying he was banned whether by his name of his player ID or anything. I ran the server, and he got banned for having Community Base Addons installed, which is a mod I run on the server.. there is the exact console message I received:
19:23:36 SFC Snygg uses modified data file - CA;C:\Bohemia Interactive\ArmA 2\AddOns\@CBA_A2
19:23:36 Player SFC Snygg connecting.
19:23:37 Mission co40 DomiA2! West Revive [2.11] read from bank.
19:23:38 Player SFC Snygg disconnected.
Is there something that I'm not finding that has banned his player ID? I have read about things like ban.txt, but that file exists no where on my computer. Any help you can give us would be greatly appreciated.
