If you to need update PB from any version to the latest version released for ET, download the file with the updaters for all OS's from one of the sites below and copy the pb folder contained in it over the pb folder in the game's installation directory. The updates and the PB services installation will happen automatically the first time you connect to a PB enabled server:

I need translations to Spanish, German, Dutch, French, Italian, Greek, Polish and Russian for the following phrases:

PunkBuster update files

Copy the PB folder from this file to the game's installation directory, overwriting the existing folder

ETKEY file generator

Copy the generated ETKEY file to the ETMAIN folder in the game's installation directory


If you speak one of those languages, send me the translations by PM or email.

A few clarifications about the current state of cheat checking on the server. The fact that (UN)EvenBalance's PunkBuster support for ET ended does not interfere with our cheat checks, because it's been years since EvenBalance added any cheat checks to ET. All cheat checks that have actually worked in the past years were provided by the two major anti cheating communities, PBBans and PunksBusted.

Along with every PB enabled ET server runs a local PB server (that is, on the same host as the ET server), and the local PB server running along the [>NF<] Server continues to check cheats based on the checks provided by PBBans and PunksBusted, using the local PB server tools. The only real change is that PunksBusted stopped receiving streaming ban information from ET servers, so a player banned on an ET server may join another one instantly, while previously servers streaming to PunksBusted would propagate that ban and the cheater would be unable to join other servers that also streamed to PunksBusted (unless, of course, he created a new etkey/PB GUID).

PBBans, which were always more commited to ET and have always offered a better service overall, continue to receive ET server streaming information, although I'm not certain if they are propagating the bans to all ET servers in their network. One of the PBBans admins posted on their forums that they were (like everyone else) awaiting the implementation that Splash Damage (ET's developers) announced they were going to make to address the unique GUID issue. You gotta be a fan of Splash Damage's - they developed the best multiplayer FPS ever, the game is free, is 8 years old, and they are still commited to it and its player base.

So, in a nutshell, all cheat checks that were running before are still running, but the cheat detections that happen on a server are not being distributed to other servers that streamed to the anti cheating networks. Bans are being enforced locally by each server individually, where the cheaters were caught.

You don't create the GUIDs, you create an etkey file with a specific format and the game computes the player's GUID based on the data on that file. I wrote my own program that generates etkey files because I didn't like the way other people's programs were creating them. You can download it from our main site at http://www.noobsforever.net.
