Sourcebans fails to load

Recommended Posts

Sourcebans fails to load. Error message from the console: No such file found: plugins/sourcebansplugin.dll. Can not load this plugin.

 

I have put loadplugin sourcebansplugin in the server config, with the other requirements.

 

I downloaded the Linux server from the main page and looked in the plugins folder and seen a SO file associated with the sourcebansplugin that I don't see in the Windows server.

 

Any advice as to what I am doing wrong?

No such file found: plugins/sourcebansplugin.dll

So you running a Windows then. Download the Windows server, and it's in there, packed with the xbase_00.iwd.

I have did that something like 3 times now, unless the file has changed in the last hour or so, it doesn't work.

I see the sourcebansplugin.dll in the xbase_00.iwd, but it will not load.

try putting the dll into <serverdirectory\plugins\your.dll>

Assuming you mean this by <serverdirectory>

I tried it like that, still fails to load.

loading plugins should work from within xbase_00.iwd as well as the /plugins directory. make sure that:
> xbase_00.iwd is in the /main folder
> other present plugins show the same error (to see if it is a plugin specific issue)
> run your server without any mods configs or special commandline arguments (just in case)

I just did a clean install, completely stock.

xbase_oo.iwd is in the main folder.

Plugin simplebanlist loaded successfully. Server is currently running 1 plugins.

sourcebansplugin, failed to load doing it the exact same way.

Update:

After going deep, and doing in-depth analyzing, I found the issue.

In the xbase_00.iwd the plugin is spelled incorrectly.

It is spelled as sourecbansplugin.dll not as one would think it should be spelled as sourcebansplugin.dll 

So it would make sense that the plugin would fail to load because in the server.cfg, I spelled it as "sourcebansplugin" which wouldn't exist because of the spelling of the plugin in the xbase_00.iwd as sourecbansplugin.dll.

 

After changing the spelling to what it is in the xbase_00.iwd, the plugin loaded just fine.
