Reply with quote

There are two ways to Enable / Disable PunkBuster software.  One is by typing commands into the game console.  The other way is built into the game's user interface.  Both will be described below.  Note that when PunkBuster is Disabled, it will ignore commands and setting changes except for the specific command to Enable after which it will begin full and proper operation.

   From the mutliplayer game's main screen, clicking the 'Join Server' icon moves to the in-game Server Browser and Selection Screen.  In the upper center portion of this screen will be a button that says either 'PunkBuster Enabled: Yes' or 'PunkBuster Enabled: No'.  Click this button to toggle the current status of PunkBuster. If you wish to change from a PunkBuster Enabled mode to Disabled mode, then the game must be restarted. Clicking the button to say 'PunkBuster Enabled: No' simply tells the game that you don't want PB enabled the next time the game is started.

   If you wish to create a Game Server, there is a PunkBuster option in the list of Server options.  Set it to 'Yes' if you wish to have PunkBuster Server Software Enabled for the newly created Game Server and set it to 'No' otherwise.

   There is no additional cost involved for using PunkBuster in a personal, non-commercial environment.  If you are playing in a prize tournament or any event (whether over the Internet or in a LAN environment) that charges an entry fee and/or awards prizes to participants, the organizers of that event are required to obtain a commercial license with Even Balance, Inc. if they wish to utilize PunkBuster Software during the event.  More information about this requirement can be obtained by emailing

   The alternative method of Enabling and Disabling PunkBuster involves typing commands into the game console.  To Enable PunkBuster from the console, type in "PB_CL_ENABLE" without the quotes.  To Disable PunkBuster, type "PB_CL_DISABLE".  If you wish to run your own game server, you can Enable/Disable the corresponding PunkBuster Server software using similar commands: "PB_SV_ENABLE" and "PB_SV_DISABLE".

   NOTICE: PunkBuster cannot be Disabled immediately during the middle of gameplay.  Choosing to Disable PunkBuster by any methods described above will set PunkBuster into Disabled mode but that does not take effect until the entire game is restarted.  Neither Players nor Server Admins can simply turn PunkBuster off and on during the middle of gameplay.  Once PunkBuster Client and/or Server has been Enabled for a gaming session, it stays Enabled regardless of how many times the Enabled/Disabled mode is toggled.  When the game is exited, the current PunkBuster status is saved and the next time the game is started, PunkBuster will initialize to the mode in which it was last set, either Enabled or Disabled.  That means players can Enable PunkBuster once and then never worry about it again if desired, as it will continue to be enabled from that point on even when the Game is exited unless specifically Disabled at some later point in time.
