No matter what you do, it is lost from stdout. However, it does still get written to console.log A 0 buffer console.log would at least let you poll the log file and react accordingly.
Ouch, ok, i guess it would have been to nice if it would have been that easy. Out of curiousity: How does the wrapper talk back to the server? Is there actually some kind of rcon functionality? Also is this publically available somewhere? Maybe i just did not look closely enough but it does not seem to be part of the default install.

Ah, i see. I guess he was after headers then since i do not see why getting names would be a problem because if the function is exported the name has to be in the binary anyways (and can be easily dumped with stuff like nm -D). Headers would save you from having to figure out function parameters (which is nice but in my opinion not one of the big problems) and might at least give you a hint about memory layout of objects (which would be a major boost but to be honest i am guessing here since i hardly have to deal with c++ - i usually avoid it the be exact...).
