[NEW] How to sign and create EBO's for any addon

Recommended Posts

           

CREATE EBO’S AND MAKE THEM SIGNABLE FOR ANY ADDON

By: Travis Butts

 

 

So something has been kept hidden from everyone for the reason of them wanting there server fully protected and not wanted people to unbin there stuff, etc. I have been holding this in my pocket for a long time and have not told anyone for the reason of my things and one other server being only ones with EBO's. I feel like this should be released for those that would like to know how to EBO their addons.

 

Q: Why make addons into EBO?

A: Security; Almost nobody can get into an EBO's these days, and it gives you an extremely good chance of having your assets remain secure, more-so than obfuscation.

 

Up until this point, almost nobody knew how to make ebo's signable, meaning you could not restrict people from joining your servers with unknown addons if you used ebo files, now you can because this method is public.

   

  • Step 1:

Download the EBO Encunter by Dougemm

  • Step 2:

Pack addons with pboProject with the following settings, if sign with key is off this is because you do not have a key selected in the options

  • Step 3:

Once packed, drag and drop pbo on the EBO Encunter and wait for it to turn into a ebo.

  • Step 4:

Now you should have a EBO File and the key which was made for the PBO, rename the .pbo part on the bikey to .ebo

  • Step 5:

In your server config put this in it, regularCheck = "{}";

  • Step 6:

Put the key file in Keys, run the addons and you should be all good to go!

Does this method only work with addons or even for its own mission? downloading pbo project does not open depbo64.dll missing
 

You can't do this to the mission file directly. Install depbo as well then.

"No config or mission found in source folder or children"?

Can someone help me? :P 

 "The presence of a config.cpp/bin, mission.sqm. or desc.ext (for campaign) marks the beginning of a pbo for that folder and all it's children (if any)."

It didn't find one of those files in the folder.

You must not obfuscate or compress on the pboproject tool

I already tried without obfuscation, I did with pbo project, I even tried with addons builder but still nothing ...

It looks like after the recent update with the updatede bi-sign this is no longer working :( 

i havn't had any succes after the update.

As far as I'm aware, BIS doesn't want you doing this anyway, so it's best to look for other solutions anyhow.

@Repentz the links don't work anymore.

It's a copy paste from unknowncheats, you can still get the files there.
