Setting up BigBrotherBot with 1.8

Recommended Posts

Because there is a question about this every day I've decided to write a quick tutorial on how to make it work with the latest CoD4x version.

I will assume you already had b3 working on 1.7/a, have knowledge in managing it and you have a 1.8 server installed.

First download the CoD4x parser HERE and place it to your parsers directory. You must have B3 in source code to have access to parsers directory. Change your parser setting in main B3 config file to cod4x18.

Next you should make a fresh B3 database as 1.8 guids are different.

And you're done! It wasn't that hard was it?

 

FAQ:

Q: Do I have to enable legacyguid mode?

A: No. Legacy mode must be disabled

 

Q: Do I need B3hide plugin?

A: No. B3hide is optional.

 

Q: Do I need simplebanlist plugin?

A: No. If you run more than one server it is recommended you do not use it as if you want to unban someone, you will have to do it on every server you run. If you run only 1 server it is fine to run the plugin. The players will stay banned regardless.

 

Q: Do I need sourcebans plugin?

A: No. Either run sourcebans or B3, but don't do both at the same time.

 

Q: Does this parser work on B3 1.9.x version?

A: Unknown. It was only tested with 1.10.x

 

Q: My guids are all 0!!

A: Please use the search function. There have been countless questions regarding this and it is not a B3 specific issue.

of course this assumes that you are not using the precompiled windows version of B3 since it does not contain a parsers directory

you need to run b3 in root user or it wont start 

cd your b3 

then type

sudo python b3_run.py

(just check )

its wont start its print line 36 and some line error  you need to install python2.7  (copy paste this pip install pip --upgrade)   

its not read !h commands check this gamemp,log location 

<set name="game_log">/home/......games_mp.log</set>

and ron and public ip should be same ip (your public ip) 

if its work screen sudo python b3_run.py

You dont need to run it as root at all. As long as B3 belongs to the user you are in, then just python b3_run.py

tht user have sudo access 
then only 
sudo python b3_run.py its wrk 

if he has sudo access, add a new user, change ownership to the new user then just run python b3_run.py... Sudo literally isn't required to run B3.. Sure for the installing maybe but everything else no.
