Punkbuster Install Download Issues

Post by Trench » November 27th, 2019, 11:14 am

We have been made aware that just this month, our web server hosting has begun "cleaning" the TanksPBUpdate.zip and PBSetup42.zip files of their old Punkbuster-related content. As such these .ZIP files were empty when downloaded.

These downloads have been temporarily switched to 7-Zip .7Z archives, so that the TanksPBUpdate and PBSVC.EXE installers can still be available to those who need them. The links may revert back to .ZIP in the future, if we can establish a long-term solution. But for now, you will need a 7-Zip compatible decompression program in order to use these downloads.

For more information on using these downloads, see the following pages:

HOW TO: Use the CD-based Battlefield 1942 game to play on the EA117 server.

Specifically the following .EXE files are being removed from the .ZIP files:

PBSETUP.EXE 2010
