Hi all, 

 

I have met an obstacle when I had tried to update my guide. 

 

I have written down all the commends required to update my guide, however nothing happened as my punkbuster haven't been enabled. Therefore I have kept pressing punkbuster button but nothing has changed. Afterwards, I have been told to try with the commends such as  (/pb_cl_enable in console and do /pb_ver to check punkbuster status) but it hasn't worked neither...

 

Does anyone know how to fix it?? 

 

Thanks,

 

nadziu

PB is obsolete on ET and has no more its support.

 

 

 

but if want it to work:

\pb_cl_enable

\pb_writecfg

 

also make sure that PB is installed on your pc (check through task manager that processes A and B of PB are running).

Punkbuster dropped support for ET a while ago.

It did but it's still worth having it installed and running

 

I THINK the last time I Setup pb as a stand alone instal was this file here: http://www.mediafire...j9q/pbsetup.zip

 

Now I use this to setup ET and PB at the same time: http://www.mediafire..._60b_custom.exe

only if you own and play at other different games supported by PB. Otherwise, it's only a source of lag spikes and a waste of resource running in background on your pc.

He needs His GUID for Enemy Territory xpsave and/or LvL.

Download pbsvc.exe from evenbalance.com: PunkBuster Service Installer (pbsvc)

 

http://www.evenbalan...m/downloads.php

Install/Re-Install PunkBuster Service.

Then in ET do in console:/pb_myguid [Press Enter]

If PB is still not enabled, Make an autoexec.cfg for etmain folder.

Open Windows Notepad, Add these commands:

pb_cl_enable
cl_punkbuster "1"

File(Tab), Save as

File Name: autoexec.cfg(not .txt)

Save as type: All Files

Save(In My Documents), Then move to etmain.

Delete PB and services for ET. PB doesn't do shit. You are better of playing on servers with own anti cheat not just =F|A= but any clan which has their own anti cheater... cos it's going to be better then PB.

Maybe I'm just paranoid after playing with PB for all these years. So it tonight when I get home disable PB and see what happens

So you can have GUID without PB enabled in NON-Silent mods? That´s news to me...

 

Tried it out, copy pasted my current "working ET dir", deleted PB folder, shut down PB.exe, the result:

 

]\cl_guid
"cl_guid" is:"unknown" default:"unknown"

 

Started "working ET with PB directory", GUID was present.

 

To the first post: if you have ET installed in C:/Program Files, Windows might not give you the permission to make changes, write to that directory. So you can move ET out of PF to dir ex. C:/Games/ET etc. Also run ET as admin and make sure you have ETKEY present in etmain folder and not in other folders in Win7, somewhere in Users/profiles(its posted in Chuckun Tutorial).

And that right there is exactly what I was talking about. That's why I continue to run PB, so that I always have my GUID
