PBBans streaming: configs and options

About streaming to PBBans
All Euro Domination match servers are required to stream to PBBans. Streaming means that the PunkBuster logs of your server are automatically sent to a central repository.

PBBans streaming is 2-way instead of 1-way (PsB, GV) and enables the following features:
- The ability to stream to PBBans and PsB/GV at the same time.
- Live banning: no need to manually update your ban list
- Ban list integration: players that are on the PBBans, PunksBusted (public), Game-Violations and Euro Domination ban list will be kicked from your server
- Automatic GUID checks: the GUIDs on a server can be automatically checked against the E-Dom database before matches
- Automatic Server config checks at match time
- E-Dom admins have direct access to PunkBuster logs

How to stream your server to PBBans?
First, download the Euro Domination PBBans Config from the downloads page.

Config options
- PBBans: includes E-Dom PB config and configs to stream to PBBans
- PBBans+PsB: includes E-Dom PB config and files required for streaming to both PBBans and PunksBusted simultaneously
- PBBans+GV: includes E-Dom PB config and files required for streaming to both PBBans and Game-Violations simultaneously

On Euro Domination, your server is only required to stream to PBBans. Use the PBBans-only config if your server is only used for E-Dom matches and you do not with to stream anywhere else.

Follow the installation instructions in the readme file to upload the files to the correct folders on your server.


Initiate streaming
To initiate PBBans streaming, the PBBans Hub needs to know that it needs to contact your server. Your server has to be added on an account at PBBans. There are several options that will be described below:
- streaming through the E-Dom account.
- streaming through your own clan's account.
- streaming through the account of your game server provider.

Streaming through the E-Dom account
This is the easiest option. Just add your server to your clan profile and it will be added to the E-Dom account automatically. All required settings will be enabled.

Streaming through your own clan's account
The advantage of having your own account at PBBans is that you can manage your own servers, as well as submit dodgy PB screenshots and access the Master Player Index (MPI) to look up information on GUIDs.

This requires you to create a team account (TA) on the pbbans website. Once you have a TA, you can add your server to the account to start streaming. You are also required to set the "flag" for our league which enables live bans, guid checks and server checks. This can be done as follows.

1. Go to your "account manager" on the PBBans website and click "view servers".

2. Find your server and click "edit flags".

3. Tick the "Euro Domination" box. You can also tick the boxes below, but ticking the E-Dom box will enable those options as well, plus a lot more. Save the change.

Streaming through your game server provider's account
In some cases, your game server provider automatically addes your server to their account. Make sure they tick the E-Dom flag as described above.


How to check which account your server is in

Go to http://www.pbbans.com/msi.php and enter your server IP and port.

The "Clan Tag" on the results page shows the account your server is in.
"Data Last Received" shows when the server last streamed.
The "League" shows whether the E-Dom flag has been ticked (required)

If you have any questions about setting up your server, contact an E-Dom staff member.

I'm sorry I don't understand: :oops:

Do you want it to stream through edom?
OR
Don't you want it to stream through edom?

If you WANT it to stream through edom, it makes it a lot easier if you are in a clan :)

Your server is steaming through edoms account which you won't be able to access.

If you want messages you will need to create your own account at pb bans. Then your have acceaccess to create those messages.

Sorry only brief I'm on my phone, if you need help add me to xfire
