Ini file Settings
After starting the server, the SmartBan.ini file with the mod settings is created in the games System folder.

AdminEmail= The email field that will be displayed to players after a Ban or Kick.
If the field is empty then email for contact will be taken from UnrealTournament.ini
bDebugLog=False This is the Admin to see certain debug log entries.
bUseACE=False False - if ACE anti-cheat is not used on the server.
True - if the server uses ACE anti-cheat and the Admin wants to ban players by ACE HWID.
HWIDWaitTimer=25 Works if bUseACE=True. This is the time allowed for a player to be scanned by ACE before sending the HWID key to SmartBan.
Decreasing HWIDWaitTimer may result in kicked off players with slower computers.

SBN Admin
SmartBan includes the option of appointing up to 10 SBN Admin.
An Options Tab in the Menu is available only to the Server Admin.
Only the Server Admin can select or remove a SBN Admin.

SBN Admin Operations
1. The SBN Admin can only see the Kick/Ban Menu.
2. The SBN Admin can only Kick a Player or send the Player to Spectate.
3. The SBN Admin can Ban or Un-Ban a Player only if the Server Admin has ticked the Allow Banning.
4. The SBN Admin is not a Server Admin and does not have any Server Admin rights.
5. The SBN Admin is always an admin and does not need to login etc.
6. The SBN Admin uses his HWID (Ace Server) or SBNID as his/her login Key.



Other Info
If ACE is installed on the server and bUseACE=True in the SmartBan.ini settings, then players with Linux/Mac, as well as players with Windows who closed the ACE installation window, will be kicked from the server. When first log in, this will happen after 25 seconds, when reconnecting - after 5 seconds.
This is due to the fact that these players do not have ACE anti-cheat installed and, accordingly, they can use cheats.

An Administrator can get information about a player in the SBN.ini file in the local System folder by double-clicking the player name in the SBN window.
