    This way you will download the updates you need directly from the game server and it saves you the hassle of finding where you need to save the files etc. Shouldn't take more then a minute.

    Hope this helps!

    And Donovan, please check your pms! I need your help with something.

    Re: Punk Buster Legacy Files - Including Quake Wars + question

    If i connect to a public server, it restarts my game (like its a mod) and then failes to open the game. Using the pb_security 0 before connecting only works on non public servers (mod servers).

    Tried to upgrade from this http://www.evenbalance.com/index.php?page=pbsetup.php (version 1.3?)
    Says it should work for ALL MAC users, but the little .app only works on PowerPC's macs (not Intel, 10.5+).

    What you are saying is definitely not correct.

    There are plenty of people who managed to solve the update problem by simply changing pb_security to zero and reconnecting to our server. We don't run any mods, it's a plain vanilla ranked server and changing the cvar works.

    That did the trick, probably mashed something up when trying it manually.

    So you are saying Evenbalance should no longer provide this manual update app?
    (If i am correct you need OSX Tiger (PPC) to compile mods for ETQW for OSX)

    Re: Punk Buster Legacy Files - Including Quake Wars + question

    After trying to play some more (not very active in ETQW anymore so I came to this conclusion a little later...) its still giving me the finger if I join most of the active servers (ranked and unranked), yes with pb_security 0 before I connect.

    I think I can conclude I can only join servers tha havn't t been restarted yet, so am I right that my Punkbuster is still out to date? Can anyone collect and send me the Punkbuster files for the Mac please?

    Re: Punk Buster Legacy Files - Including Quake Wars + question

    We restart our server every couple of days but that doesn't stop it from getting authenticated after every reboot. The way I understand is that if you authenticated your server before the main server went down, you won't experience any problems.

    That's probably a slight consolation to you though. Changing pb_security to zero works for most people, but it sometimes seems to fail and I'm not sure what's causing that. I can offer a link to the legacy installer that still includes ETQW in the games list, but I'm not sure if it will be of any use to you. It did help someone who suffered from the same problems as you do, but it's a PC installer and I don't know if it will work on a MAC.

    My suggestion would be to find a fellow MAC user and ask him to send the files he's using to you.

    Re: Punk Buster Legacy Files - Including Quake Wars + question

    I want to make an apology for buggin you guys with my mac related issue. It seems to work now again. I think there is something in my base folder, probably custom content related that screws it up. After renaming my base folder to base_old, the game created a new directory called base, so I moved up only some configs and now I can join servers again. Thanks for the pointers anyway!

    to get the 1.5 patch was drama enough .... all links here on the "official" side are unbelivable slow or 95% dead ...

    Splash Damage can't do that. This is more suitable for a user to do. But you will need to believe this user.

    Re: Punk Buster Legacy Files - Including Quake Wars + question

    Well i seem to have a VERY annoying Punkbuster Issue at the moment.. and no way to fix it. Maybe one of you guys could help?

    Currently, whenver i get on a Public QW server, IE a Vanilla basic QW server with no mods what so ever, i always get kicked for PnkbsterB.Exe failed.

    I have tryed using pb_security 0, pb_sleep 500. I have completely reinstalled my game twice, i had downloaded the Punkbuster Legacy files mentioned in this thread. I have made sure my firewall has the PnkbsterA and B on the allow list. I even went as far as to completely disable my Windows Firewall and uninstall my AVG antivirus to make sure they werent screwing with PunkBuster, and i still got kicked. However, i can go onto the TAW practice servers loaded with QWTA 3.5 and not get kicked at all.

    Im open for any suggestions that might help.. Thanks

    Maybe the other solutions works for you. Some years ago i did it with the pbsvc, never did the first solution.

    Re: Punk Buster Legacy Files - Including Quake Wars + question

    hi there!

    i just stumbled over the game i wanted to play years ago...unfortunately, since for MAC no work around existed, it required 2 hours of work until i could actually play it online!

    opening the console doesn't work for me! i cannot find the right key combination (CTRL+ALT+^ or ' do not work for me), also binding a key in the corresponding .cfg file to {toggle allow_console "1"} doesn't work. so setting "pa_security 0" is a no-go for me obviously, BUT:

    this is what WORKED for me on MAC OS 10.6.8 SL (NOT mentioned here already!)

    1) goto http://cod22.evenbalance.com/index.php?page=dl-etqw.php and get all the MAC files (pbsec.htm, mc002114.htm, ma001313.htm)
    2) put them into: ~/Library/Application Support/ETQW/sdnet/*PROFILENAME*/pb/htm
    3) start the game, activate PB and join a server - PB files should update now!

    if for whatever reason this doesn't happen, here is my PB folder with all the files already downloaded: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/17363461/pb.zip

    let me know if it works for you! great game!
    (whatever that is)
