Punkbuster Software

Postby Sarvis » Sat Oct 25, 2003 1:37 am

Anyone heard of this? Know anything about it? I was just about to install the patch for America's Army to get it to version 1.9... and noticed this is installed too. The license for it (it has it's own seperate from AA) makes it sound a lot like spyware to me...

It's not spyware. It's pretty decent anti-cheating software for multiplayer FPS's. Wolfenstein Enemy Territory has it built in (servers can turn it on or off). I only play ET on punkbuster-enabled servers. It will autokick cheaters that it detects. Q3A, Rainbox Six, SoF II all can use it. Several other upcoming games have announced support for it.

It's not perfect (doesn't catch everything) but I personally like it. I don't think you have anything to fear from it unless you gotta have your aimbot!
