Hi Timiz0r,

I think you have a problem in you punkbuster Regex code (I'm a regex noob) ...


static Regex PunkBusterPlayerListRegex = new Regex(@"^PunkBuster Server: \d+  [0-9a-f]{32}\(-\) (?<ip>\d+\.\d+\.\d+\.\d+):\d+ OK   1 \d+\.\d+ \d+ \(W\) ""(?<name>[^""]+)""", RegexOptions.Compiled);


It seams like only matching player 1 till 9 .... player number >= 10 is ignored.

Is there a bug in the regex above?

A month or two ago, I changed around how players were handled, which should have caused all of that to break. Without going through the code to check, either no player will ever have IPs or newly connection players wont have IPs. I've been a little busy the past 2 days, but I'll see if I can fix IPs today, right after I finish the heavily-delayed roundover event.

Actually some corrections:
First, everything actually does update (ftw), so you can ignore everything above this. Next, for players >= 10, I just noticed that the extra space after the player id is there because of PB formatting; since there's documentation for the plist command, I had to guess what everything would look like. After I eat, I'll think up a graceful way of fixing it.

Hi Timiz0r,

I get a couple of these (I masked out with xxx in respect to the player)...

PunkBusterMessage: PunkBuster Server: 7  c231a71497153669f6dc7908xxxxxa69(-) 62.xx.238.xxx:3659 UPDT 1 0.0 0 ( ) "xxxx"

Please notice that the player has a "( )" and not a "(W)" - dunno what it means, but it doesn't match the regex.

I dunno much about regex, but can it be like (?) instead?

I went ahead and made the regex more general since that line you gave me had multiple differences. The latest code has the changes.
