EDIT*Servers crashing?

Yesterday servers started to crash all the time. Again the problem was PB. To fix this problem do:

Quote by ToxicdaveUpdate the pb server using the following.

dload the update specific to your server type.

windows servers - http://www.evenbalance.com/downloads/et/pbsvnew.dll

linux servers - http://www.evenbalance.com/downloads/et/pbsvnew.so

and mac lol - http://www.evenbalance.com/downloads/et/pbsvnew.mac

upload into the pb dir then rcon pb_sv_restart. Wont restart the server but will update from the file and start the pb services.


I already did that on my server and server is not crashing anymore. Have fun and good luck.


greetz b1bub4bu!

PB : Bad FPS, Blue-Screens, Kicks for not cheaters => it sucks!.
PB IS SO AWESOME

Shit has been so awesome since I switched back to linux and ditched PnkBstrA/B, because Punkbuster doesn't actually do anything.
Why don't we just ditch that piece of shit...
soon i hope, anti3
Parent
anti3 wont help. overload was cheating during their ec game versus mamut
Parent
lol :D i mean ETACE, when ETACE will be finished and will be changed with pb , then it will be cool
Parent
i thought etace = anti3 :D silly me
Parent
well its not...etace its like a mod,anti3 is more like a individual scanner
Parent
you don't know anything
Parent
i have inside infos.
Parent
Lets thrash the PB coders :o
Parent
QuoteAgain the problem was PB.


:DDDD
agree in 100%, thats why I laughed :D
Parent
i guess you have to rename pbsvnew to pbsv, no?
no just put in pb folder on your ftp and its done. i think its .etwolf/pb/
Parent
btw my pbsv.so and this pbsvnew.so got the exact same md5 checksum. they are the exact same files. imo they changed something on their side and voilà.
Parent
its pbsvnew.dll not pbsvnew.so. you got something wrong.

also dont delet anything. just put this in pb folder and its done.. dont complicate
Parent
for linux it's *.so, not *.dll
Parent
also dont delet anything. just put this in pb folder and its done.. dont complicate
Parent
i still think that this doesn't have to be done. my old pbsv.so (before doing what toxicdave says) was the same as pbsvnew.so. I guess when you upload pbsvnew.so and restart pb, then pb renames pbsvnew.so to pbsv.so since it's the way to update pb manually. Therefore, if my old pbsv.so already had the fix integrated that's because PB did update it on its side.
Parent
worked for me.. and for toxicdave
Parent
idd, but thats only when fs_homepath is not set, so else it would be fs_homepath/pb/ :)
Parent
idd, wanted to pb_sv_ban some1, and my server crashed :DDD
:> how are you my lover :)
Parent
fine and you?
Parent
pb is just ridiculously shite now imho xDD
the amount of 3on3 yesterday where the server crashed half way through was so annoying :D
we had like 4 wars & didnt finnish any:P we just quit playing by than:P was like omfg not again..
Parent
PB should better fix this shit FPS lags -.-
Thanks for the info

just ran it in a shell loop on all YCN servers :)
np, so its working now?
Parent
cant really test 200 servers on my own, but i'll hear back from some customers shortly
Parent
EDiT servers crashing.

I WONDER WHY LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL
i see what you did there!
Parent
lol when i read the topic name i thought that overload was crashing servers or smth :DDD:DD:
Parent
thx butz
what blue screen?
once again dave to the rescue :)
Issue was resolved by a change to the master server. Manually updating PB on your game server won't help / wouldn't have helped, and the crash problem was fixed within the hour.
