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

  1. #41

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

    Since the server authentication problem seams to be resolved, maybe measures can be taken in resolving the PB file problem.

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

    hereric,

    your resolve may help those tech savvy amongst us but doesn't change the fact it has to be in-putted manually.

    Ideally the matter has to be sorted centrally,server side.

    This is were SD,Id or whoever,I hope,can repair the anti-cheat streaming system.

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

    Getting the update is a matter of a couple of seconds if you know what to do but the big problem is explaining people what they should do and getting them to try it out. And on top of that there's also a language barrier: a lot of people don't have a very good grasp of English which complicates things even more. I've used Google translate to explain people in Spanish, Italian, French, Polish & Russian how they can get their updates. Some people actually manage to take the hurdle, but I suppose most of them just give up after a couple of kicks.

    I'm glad the authentication problem is solved, thanks for that, but this is the real nail in the coffin in my opinion. It basically stops new players from trying out the game.

    you're absolutely right, this is a barrier. what do you think of putting up a small, simple website, which pops up as the first google result, explaining in a video or so how to get PB working - it's just copying some files (also downloadable from that website). this game needs more new players!

    I'm not sure what made Evenbalance decide to stop offering the download for the update but I somehow doubt it was because of the incessant downloading of updates for this game that brought their servers to their knees.

    How much would it cost to just simply provide the central location and the bandwidth for the downloads? It's a tiny amount of hard disc space and only a couple of downloads per day. I don't understand the reasons behind all this and I feel bad for the people that buy this game and end up being kicked because they have to jump through hoops to avoid being kicked.

    Can't you just put in the pb_security 0 in your autoexec.cfg instead of doing this every time manually?

    You don't need to do this every time you play, just once. That should be enough to download the correct version from the server you're connected to and after that, you won't have any problems.

    The website seems to be offline. Does anyone know if it's permanent? If yes does anyone has different link to those files?

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

    blackbart666, have you tried to do the process on post #20? This is the most easy way to fix the problem. Or look again post #1, since a updated it with this info.

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

    Im screwing,.... (i.e not happy). Im no wizz on the computer, im more of a plug and play kind of guy. I have tried to follow the instructions, but im getting nowere and tbh just losing faith. If anyone has a " Get these file in the right place FOR DUMMY's" that would be great (or a simple bullet point process to follow would be perfect). Thank you to the clever person who answers

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

    Can someone post who has done this successfully? please.......

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

    This is what I did.

    Do this in the main menu of the game:
    - Open the console (Press the keys "Ctrl" + "Alt" + "~" simultaneously);
    - Type pb_security 0
    - Press the key ENTER
    - Close the console
    - Connect to a game server.
    This should allow punkbuster to download the updated punkbuster files from the server you connect to. If this doesn't work you may with to reinstall punkbuster from the etqw cd to make sure the program hasn't become broken/corrupted and then repeat the above process.

    A small addition to the instructions in the first post. You can verify yourself whether you are downloading the necessary punkbuster update after you changed pb_security to 0.

    - Change the setting the way it is explained in the first post;
    - Make sure pb_security is really set to 0 by simply typing pb_security in the console and pressing ENTER, it will show the current setting;
    - Connect to a server;
    - Open the console and type pb_plist followed by ENTER.

    You will see a list of all the players on the server, look for your own name in the list and check if it says "UPDT" next to your name. Here's an example of how it should look if you've done everything right:

    Code:
    PunkBuster Client: Player List: [Slot #] [GUID] [Status] [Auth Rate] [Recent SS] [Name]

    2013-01-25 14:26:34 : PunkBuster Client: End of Player List (20 Players)
    PB client no 20 needed the update because he reinstalled the game, he changed pb_security to 0 and as you can see it says "UPDT" to the left of his name.

    Thanks to Biosnark for pointing this out!
