Player vs Player Gaming Network (PvPGN) Integration

This add-on registrate vBulletin registrations automatically to the PvPGN Server.

You must set in PvPGN the datastore to MySQL and must in the same DB, where vBulletin is installed.

What is PvPGN?

PvPGN is a free Gameserver Emulator, that emulate battle.net and experimental Westwood Games.

You can get PvPGN here: http://pvpgn.berlios.de

A PvPGN Server can be used:
  • When wanting to host a local tournament with local users and ladders.
  • When wanting to maintain a local community of friends rather than playing on Battle.net.
  • For people who want to play on a LAN but with Battle.net-like statistics. Various cyber cafes use a PvPGN server for this purpose.
  • For people who want to play on a server within their country or local area, so as to reduce lag.

ATTENTION: PvPGN is not allowed in the USA, because it violates the DMCA Rules and Blizzard has won the lawsuit against the bnetd Developer. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blizzard_v._BnetD for more Information. In Germany and other countries the DMCA Rules are not exist.

I think this is a problem in Germany. People registering at your site cannot be registered automatically on another site without their agreement.
Also I hate it with sharing user login data with another site I don't know.
Nice idea but problematic

? This mod is free available. PvPGN is licensed under the Terms of GPL. There is no registration at the PvPGN Project site required. BerliOS is similar like SourceForge.net.

This Mod registrates Users only to your own PvPGN Server, not to other servers. To install PvPGN a root server required.

Cool Install and Configure PVPGN

The Documentation at PvPGN Website is not really useful, so I write my litte documentation:

Some Linux Distributions have PvPGN as a DEB or RPM Packet included. But this versions is not recommened, because many Packets are outdated and make some problems with new Clientversions.


You need: MySQL-Header, Dev-Files, cmake, make and the required compilation tools

Get the newest version at SVN:

http://developer.berlios.de/svn/?group_id=2291

or


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

After checkout go to the directory trunk and exec following commands.


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

PvPGN is compiling and installing in /usr/local.

After this, download the Support files:

http://prdownload.berlios.de/pvpgn/p...ort-1.2.tar.gz and unpack this at /usr/local/var/files.

At /usr/local/etc/bnetd.conf:

Search
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

and comment out this line or delete it.

Add this following text on a new line:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Next search:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Change this in (because you will use the PvPGN Integration for vBulletin):
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Done.

You can start PvPGN with
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

or if you start PvPGN in Debug mode

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Ports, that must allow at the Server Firewall:
6112, 6200. 4807 (if you have Westwood Support enabled) und 6667 (if you have IRC Support enabled).

Battle.net Clients:

Add Server to the Client:

Registration Editor (regedit):

Goto HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Battle.net\Configuration.
Add to "Battle.net gateways" this lines:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Warcraft III (and The Frozen Throne):

Battle.net gateways is located at HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Blizzard Entertainment\Warcraft III.

For Warcraft III is the PvPGN Loader required, to use a PvPGN Server.

PvPGN Loader for Warcraft III Version 1.22: w3l.zip (Unpack this to your Warcraft III Directory)

Use the Tutorial with you own risk!


Here a screenshot from my PvPGN Server:

Hello!

I'm using the Windows based PvPGN, I can't seem to make it to work.

Forum registrants aren't automatically added to PvPGN.

What do I do?

I haven't testing this on Windows yet. Do you have a 32 or 64 Bit Windows? You can use the pvpgn hash class, if you use 32-Bit Windows.

If you don't use the class, make sure the path to "bnpass.exe" is correct.
