So yesterday I installed SoF2 1.03 again after 5-6 years of not playing. I kept a USB with the game folder with all maps/mods in it and all that jazz.

So I booted up the game, and yes it wasn't exactly as popular as it used to be but there were still people playing. I even played some good old OSP 1.0h on Ravenz STD INF server and had a blast. But that was like the only server with punkbuster on!

Before, every server worth playing on used Punkbuster. My initial thought when seeing the server list was that PB no longer supports SoF2, but obviously that's not the case when a few servers do have it enabled. What's going on?

As pb doesnt support sof anymore,  alot of. People are having issues with pb kicking them with an error, amd the fact thta there are a bunch of new hacks develoles thta arent detected by pb,  are the main reasons why people dont have pb on their servers.

The once that have,  have mainly the old sof players.
I think there are like 3 or 4 servers with pb left,  whom. I currently only play at raven and xs cky server.

Thank you that makes sense. Obviously I had no problems or errors with Punkbuster as I had the old folder on USB from years ago. I just presumed that the remaining players were in fact the "old players". Oh and yeah I played on the CKY server as well.

This raises another concern though. Even though PB is not up to date and new hacks were developed undetected, back then, as a sysop administrator of my clan server, I would use pbss(punkbuster screenshots) to catch wallhacking. So I mean it does serve a purpose even if outdated.

So the only way now to catch a cheater is to sit in spectator mode all day? Lucky there aren't many players left then.

This is what is and was used to for v1.00 players/admin/clans from the beginning like me and my old YOB Clan. Good Admins always had to go spectate catching cheaters preserving good players instead.. this is why the old admins were better.

Pb used to. Rely. On the ss system idd,  but was proven to. Be unreliable and hackable.  Clean screens and such.

For silver fairplay came. Into play that did the same but also hackable.

Silver now has 1fx anticheat,  which does the same. But hasnt. Been hacked.

We asked to. Bring it to gold too but they would need to. Port the whole ac to rocmod. And that takes to much time. For such a small game.

I understand. I got my friend back to playing this weekend and he couldn't join servers with PB. He kept ketting kicked for something with PnkBstrA. I even sent him the file and my entire pb folder as well and it just wouldn't work. Maybe it's because he's on windows 10 I don't know.

But I agree then it's best to disable it to get all players back on board!

Na, There is a certain method that will work, as i usually do it when i get kicked and i get in.
But have to do it regularly, Will try to make a tutorial about it someday when i have time.
