Get SteamID and questions regarding IDs

Recommended Posts

Hello guys,

as far as I know, there are getGuid(), getXUID(), getUID() and getPlayerID. getPlayerID() and getGuid() give me the same output. getUID() gives me output 0 and getXUID() gives an alphanumeric combination. So, first question is: is getUID() = 0 on purpose? Second question: is getXUID() hardware related? Third: why do getGUID() and getPlayerID() give me the same output? Fourth: is there a function, that allows to get the steam id of a player, who is using steam when playing cod4?


Thanks for reading!

getGuid(), getXUID(), getUID() this functions are only there so old scripts don’t crash.

getUID() should be dead with the death of punkbuster. The uid came from a long gone global database.

getXUID() returns the intermediates playerid before the third time hashing. Just forget about it.

getsteamid64 and getplayerid64 are the only scriptfunctions you should use. Everything else I would consider as deprecated.
