Earlier Punkbuster options for server owners (force screenshots)

Hello folks.

I know that earlier "for the server admins", we could force punkbuster to make screenshots of a certain individual. Then if suspicious we could make punkbuster make several screenshots of the individual in question.

Was this coded in Americas army or only on punkbuster itself?
Is it possible to do this still in AAPG?
And if not, will it be possible to get this option again if it was done trough development of the game?

    Webtool I think is what your looking for. It is in your server settings somewhere dep on your server provider.

    the best way is to use PBUCON, as it's light-weight. command you are looking for is

    > pb_sv_getss <SLOT#>

    In life, there is no respawn... why should there be in a game?

    Thanks allot! I will try that.

    Its mainly for forcing several ss of one player for whenever the suspicion is high and we don't want them to spend time on the server for to long :)

    Have had wallhackers on the server for up to 10 minutes before getting actual proof.
    Not that most of them are any good in any way, and easy to kill. With Wallhack they allways come to you :)

    Since you are already streaming over at ACI you can use the LiveSecure Server Monitor in your control panel to force screenshots, as well as kick and ban players. If you request too many screenshots in a row PunkBuster will simply ignore the request.

    Ah yes found it!
    Thanks Soldier,
    Livesecure seems to work smooth, just need to verify my results once I have some more players in here other than just myself

    I tried the Webtool also, but really does not seem to be optimized for AAPG, it does work at a point, but PB does not seem to communicate 100%, bans and kicks works, but did not manage to do much else, I sent requests for screenshots, but they never got delivered. PB just kept on making its random shots.
    Unfortunatly the player I was looking at left before PB did anything regarding screenshots
