The pb_getss is a nice feature for hosters to see a others person gamingscreen.

Now I wonder if it is possible to get a pb_getss with remote console (rcon) and store it on my hard drive or even without the rcon.

I hope this is possible so I dont have to ask my clanleader to upload the picture to me.

As far as I know, it only saves the screenshot to the server. However, you can have the screenshot viewable from the internet. For each screenshot, it also creates a htm file. I have seen a server admin make screenshots public on his website. I think it was in real time. I have no clue how this is done other than having an executable placed in this command:


This is what it says on the PunkBuster site:

PB_SV_SSCMD holds the name of a local script (batch) file that PB will execute automatically after each screen shot is retrieved successfully. The default value of this setting is "" (empty) which means that PB will not run a local script at all after image captures. PunkBuster passes the full image filename with path as a parameter to the script. This is for advanced Admins who wish to automate the processing, archiving, and/or publishing of screenshots (such as to a web server).

Perhaps you could make a file that would automatically upload the screenshot to you.
