YAWn! Linux

YAWn! homepage

Note that YAWn! Linux is for the old YAWn! service, there is no Linux client for the current YAWn! service yet.


YAWn! Linux is a client for the YAWn! service which keeps track of the names used by Return to Castle Wolfenstein players. Players are tracked by their unique PunkBuster GUID, thus players can not hide behind a fake name to play reckless or purposely misbehave.

YAWn! adds a console command to Return to Castle Wolfenstein that lists all players like PunkBuster does, but additionally displaying the other names this player used before, or for players that use YAWn! themselves, the name they registered under and a taunt message they chose.
