PB Causing Stutter

Question

Punkbuster is causing an extremely annoying stutter in ET at the moment. After a consistent interval the game will freeze for a fraction of a second. This interval seems to be decided by pb_sleep. Setting pb_sleep to 500 increases the interval and reduces the number of stutters in any given period of time but it does not remove it. Does anybody have any ideas on how to stop the stutter completely?

 

I have tried pb_security and system but there is no effect. I don't know how to update pb anymore now that it is no longer supported.

We don't use PB on any of our servers.. u can just remove PB completely from your system. For silent mod servers we use different anti cheat anyways.

 

PB dropped support for ET year back anyways... so no need to keep PB.

So you can keep your GUID / XPSave, use the following settings:

 

/pb_cl_enable

/pb_system 0

/pb_security 0

 

This keeps PB itsself enabled, but pb_system 0 turns the in-game checks OFF, and pb_security 0 stops PB deleting your etkey if/when it fails to authenticate.

I just tried this now and it does not work. The game still freezes at intervals decided by pb_sleep.

Got it. Threaded optimisation being turned off in the nvidia panel has fixed the issue. Thanks for the help!
