Userid

From Valve Developer Community
Jump to: navigation, search

A userid is a unique integer given to each player who connects to a server. Numbers are assigned sequentially, and never re-used.

IDs are chiefly used to identify players in events.

Warning: It can be easy to confuse a player's ID with their entity index, as until someone disconnects from the server they will be in sync.

Usage

IDs are assigned by the engine, and cannot be changed.
