How to play on FEAR PB servers without EB Support?


Recommended Posts

Because alot of people still dont know where to look for the fixes ill try it this way by creating one sticky with all the info.


Punkbuster support ended (Evenbalance/PBBans december 2007)

This means the following services will not be available for FEAR Combat/Retail:

- Evenbalance's PBSetup to autoupdate your PB Client/Server

- Evenbalance's manual update downloads for your PB Client/Server

- Evenbalance's Troubletickets about errors updating

- PBBans will no longer allow FEAR servers to stream

- PBBans will no longer update MD5tool scans

- PBBans will no longer add FEAR catches to MBI


So what do i need to play on PB Enabled servers if I just installed/re-installed the game?

1) Update your FEAR Combat/Retail to the most current version (v1.08)


2) Install the Punkbuster Services (not included with the game setup)

download it here: http://www.evenbalance.com/downloads/pbsvc/pbsvc.exe


3) rename the original PB folders in BOTH your gamedir, asswell as your fear userdir.

This so u can replace the /PB/ folders with the PBdir included in my PBfix WinRAR archive

Gamedir is most likely in c:\Program Files\sierra\FEAR

User Directory can be found through: Start > Programs > FEAR > Shortcut to Userdirectory


Download the PBfix at this url (file at the bottom)



And now?

Now you should be able to play just fine. If u still run into PB Errors please write down the exact error and include it in your reply :)
