Manually updating punkbuster for aa3 elena and damon dating 2016
This is for anyone who likes keeping their system as lean as possible, and/or for people who don't play on a lot of games requiring Punk Buster.
Since America's Army 3 is the only game I play that uses Punk Buster, I don't play the game all that frequently at the moment, and I don't like having two services sitting around taking up 5megs of memory each at all times, I decided to write a file to stop them from running during Windows startup and safely close them while they're not needed.
Punk Buster is designed to keep itself up to date using our proprietary auto-update system.
For cases where the auto-update fails, we have created a utility named PBSetup that can manually update one or more installations of Punk Buster.
(Pnk Bstr A and Pnk Bstr B) Normally these are installed when the game is installed.
If you'd like to manually install Pnk Bstr A and Pnk Bstr B, please download our Punk Buster service installer.
For the Server Administrators to turn PB on, all players must manually update Punkbuster on their PC otherwise when you join the server you get stuck on the Team Selection and will not be able to play, then a little bit later you are kicked back to the browser.
I put this in the since it appears that one of the services likes to reset itself as Automatic each time you play AA3.
Has anyone been able to make this run perfectly in Wine?
I only found out today that this game was free, so I started downloading it in Steam (almost completed).
When you click "Add a Game" the path found is incorrect so you must browse to locate the "Binaries" folder, DO NOT SELECT "pb" folder as it is created or overwritten.
Normally Punk Buster keeps itself updated while you play your favorite game.
