a few questions about ET

      a few questions about ET

      ok so as of yesterday i had never heard of ggc
      but i found an etpro server that uses this service
      and it got me intrested

      i host a private server sometimes
      so id use this for that and once i figure it out
      i have a friend who will use it on her public server too

      that being said i have a bunch of questions and no answers
      so if anyone can answer any of these well that would be great

      1. is ggc compatible with et3.0 linux?
      2. what do i need on the server for ggc to work?
      3. how do i configure ggc?
      4. does ggc ban automatically when it detects a cheat?
      5. what happens to "NO_GUID" guid [bad etkey] and "unknown" guid [pb off] players on ggc servers?

      im sure i could come up with more questions
      but i think its best i get the answers to those before i move on

      cheers and thanks in advance to anyone who replies with answers!
      -nqg
      i can answer a few
      1) not sure i would assume so but that would be one to ask the dev here norman

      2)ggc is very easy, put 4 lines in the config file and one in another file and streaming should work great.

      3) see answer 2

      4) if a know cheat is detected then yes it will kick them

      5) if pb is off them ggc wont work at all, as for the no guid/bad key i'm not sure if it will kick or not.

      thanks for the quick reply pipes

      the etpro server i was on had pb off but ggc installed
      but not being a hacker i had no idea that means it wont work
      but tbh thats really the main reason i was interested in ggc
      because theres 2 problems with using pb on et servers:

      1. eb dropped pb support for et so no guids are made for new players
      meaning only experienced players can play on pb enabled et servers
      which is fine for etpro or private servers but horrible for public servers

      2. sd released 2 [main] versions of et: 2.55 and 2.60
      but a 3rd party dev team released et3.0 for servers only
      which allows both 2.55 [usually noob] and 2.60 players to connect
      which again is really only important for public servers
      but pb_sv wont work with this new server version
      [so /pb_sv_enable returns nothing when entered in server console]
      i assume its because it consideres the 3.0 exe to be "hacked"
      because its not 1 of the "official" versions of et released by sd

      that being said i have 2 more questions:
      1. is there any way i can make pb run on et3.0?
      1a. if so is there anything i can put on the server to fix client guids?
      2. is there any way to run ggc without pb?
      2b. if so will it still ban hackers automatically?

      Totally impossible! A server can only stream to us or in any other way by using the UCON function of PB. This IS simply not possible. In no way. Never.

      You might get an answer by Even Balance on this. Else you should consider contacting the game developer or the developer of the mod.

      so ggc cant do anything if its not streaming?
      it wont ban or even let me check the pb status of clients?
      whats the difference between having pb only and pb+ggc then?

      sadly i doubt sd or eb will have any interest in this
      as they didnt seem to care when they let the et master server die
      or stopped the functionality of the pb etkey generator
      but i may contact the 3.0 dev team
