Lightbulb How to manually update punkbuster.

Semi "Automagic" update for both client and server (win32 only):

1. Download Punkbuster update script.
2. Save the file in the root of your pb dir (ex. c:\programfiles\EAgames\bf2\pb\) IMPORTANT !!
3. Run the file and wait for updates to get downloaded, (this make take some time)
4. If it stops just press ctrl+c, close the dos window and try again.
5. When it's finnished it should say "Press a key to exit"
6. If this is a running server issue the command pb_sv_restart in the game console window. If client just restart/start your game.

Server manual update (win32 and linux) :

1. Download the following files to your \pb\ dir. (right click and save as) file1 file2 file3 file4 file5 file6 win32 or linux (file 1-6 are common files the last two are for either win32 or linux)
2. Either restart your server or if it's already running issue the command pb_sv_restart
3. Your all set

The manual update contains links to direct files and will only be valid untill next PunkBuster update. (i'll try to update this post if not admins can update the links)

Anyone else seeing PB NOT updating? I know it was not before the game was released publicly. We had to update ours manually.

Just wondering if this is still an issue seeing as I have not had any issues with pb sense the official release date.

It seems that punkbuster did not autoupdate the server. Because after i did a manual server update the server seems to come up with a lot of messages like this one "Download request for pbcl (w 1110 -> 1128) from (slot#59 ...... " So it seems the autoupdate atleast on the server side is not working, but it seems the client gets update from any updated server.
