Hey, over the last week or so I have been really suspicous of people cheating, and have gone to the admins twice. And i thought id go onto the americasarmy.com site, and I saw that they have just hired a punkbuster person. So I was just wondering if they are adding the anti-cheat software into the servers or patches or both? Any comments will do:cool:
An option for servers would be able to enable punkbuster and punkbuster will be realsed in the next patch.
mmmm ok, any idea of when the next patch is out?

they already have an anti-cheat running, but the damn anti-cheat doesnt even work, so now they are trying to find anotehr way "punkbuster".
So does that mean that they stopped using thier anti-cheat(AC) software because of that huge ban episode? I know there were having a few problems with AC software... So they just decided to 3rd party contract out huh?? So what does anyone know about this Punkbuster software?? I read a little about it... But have never seen it in action. I had a friend say that it wasnt very effective in Counter Strike(I dont know... never liked counterstrike anyways). Any opinions?
It would be cool if u suspected someone was cheating and u clicked a picture next there name and it scanned for hacks. Is that what punkbustaer is similar to?
I have Soldier of Fortune II: Double Helix. the devs for sof2 use punkbuster and it works pretty damn well. i DLed a hack to see if it really did work, and a few seconds after i entered the server, i was kicked out, and a box came up stating why i had been kicked.
no, punkbuster isnt like that, but i think if you are kicked out of a server(because a hack/cheat was detected) you are banned from that server for some time or forever.
From what i've seen of punkbuster, it works pretty well, as long as you keep it up to date, it won't boot you from a server unless you are cheating. Also, i haven't played sof2 for about 2 months, but when i had played it, punkbuster worked fine.
Hey.. thanks for letting me know :) I do know from what I have read that Punkbuster will take screenshots and send them to the Admins at punkbuster and then they decide... But you cant scan someones computer using punkbuster... That could be trouble. hehe :) But hey.. thanks for telling us about your experiances with punkbuster.. that makes me feel ALOT better about AA in the future... I know I have had my questions about if someone was cheating or not... but I dont accuse cause I figure in the end.. they will get caught... they always do :)
