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

    Punk Buster Legacy Files - Including Quake Wars + question

    Here the easy fix, from post 20, by Dr. Funkenstein:

    - Open the console (Press "Ctrl" + "Alt" + " ' ");
    - Type pb_security 0;
    - Press ENTER;
    - Close the console;
    - Connect to a game server.
    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.
    Now my original post, but i believe you just need the words above:

    Here all the legacy Punk Buster files so you can last update your discontinued Punk Buster game:
    http://www.pbbans.com/forums/files/l...iles-cat7.html

    Here the Quake Wars legacy PB file:
    Windows http://www.pbbans.com/forums/files/q...ws-file65.html
    Linux http://www.pbbans.com/forums/files/q...ux-file66.html

    A friend of mine was just having problem to play on the servers, and i believe this will fix the problem.

    If yes, in what folder those files need to be put?

    Thanks in advance!

    *changed from "above" to "bellow".

    You can type "fs_savepath" on the game console. It will give you a Hard Disk local with the end:
    "(...)/Id Software/Enemy Territory - Quake Wars"

    Remove this end and put "PunkBuster/ETQW/pb" so it will turn into:
    "(...)/PunkBuster/ETQW/pb"

    This is the place to put the Legacy PunkBuster files.

    If you continue to have problems, tell us.

    Thank you mate!
    Hopefully this will work for Linux.
    If not, well, PB better hide in shadows somewhere

    I have the game on the MAC, and after a minute or two thrown me from the server. Maybe someone has Punk Buster Legacy Files on MAC?

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

    ok I worked it out

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

    Please please do tell how you worked it out on mac?
    I can't seem to find the files anywhere...

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

    The legacy files work only on Windows platform.
    On Linux only, I managed to connect to a one server.
    As for the Mac platform, there is no solution.

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

    someone who has the updated mac files can upload.

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

    I searched and found a solution. For me it works.
    I added a port on the router for PankBustera and now do not throw me out of the game.
    Port for a PankBuster: 27666
    This can be useful for someone: http://box24.evenbalance.com/index.p...e=faq-etqw.php

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

    I found some information about Punkbuster legacy files on PBBans and they mentioned something interesting: there's a cvar called pb_security which defaults to "1" but changing that to "0" should enable you to download Punkbuster files from any (game) server.

    Here's the quote:

    pb_Security 0 // allow pb-update downloads from ANY (game-)server
    And here's the link to the thread I found. Check post no 4 by Benway.

    It worked for one of our clan members, perhaps other people should try this. Seems by far the easiest solution...

    The solution which was sent in by Dr.Funkenstein works for Mac platform users.
    I forgot to write about him before

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

    I have a question related to this problem and I hope someone knows the answer.

    There's a PB cvar called pb_sv_updategrace and this determines how much time someone gets to update his outdated version before he gets kicked from the server. The default value is 300 seconds and the maximum value is 4800 seconds. We changed it to 1800 seconds so people have half an hour to ask questions etc. before they get kicked, but players still get kicked for this reason after 5 minutes and I don't understand why.

    I added this line to pbsvuser.cfg:

    Code:
    pb_sv_updategrace 1800
    And if I check the value in the console I can see that it's set to 1800 on the server.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    You set pb_sv_updategrace on the server?

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

    Thanks for your uninformed contribution to the usefulness of Punkbuster, brbrbr.

    You can argue about the effectiveness of PB as a way to stop cheaters (I personally consider it to be a "first line of defence" not a perfect tool to stop them), people do get kicked because of the wrong reasons and the fact that the update isn't supported any more makes things even worse, but I'd like to hear from you how you would plan on stopping someone like this without using Punkbuster.

    You can't do that from within the game, you can ban a nick, but you can't ban a "person". All they need to do is create a new nick and they can rejoin at any time.

    This is a more recent example.

    Adhesive figured he'd grace the ESM server with his presence a couple of weeks ago and went on a tk rampage. The people that had admin rights on the server banned him numerous times but he kept coming back using different nicks and they simply gave up at some point because the game itself doesn't give you the tools to deal with someone like that.

    There's no way to stop an idiot without using Punkbuster. If you have a better solution, I'm all ears.

    You open the console in the way Donovan described, and I would suggest doing this first:

    - Open the console;
    - Type pb_security 0;
    - Press ENTER;
    - Close the console;
    - Connect to a game server.

    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.
