    PunkBuster MAC Problem Fix. Credit to El_Terrible

    Thanks to the help of several people including @max][mus, @El_Terrible, The problem with MAC's and COD with PB have been resolved at least temporarily.

    Here is the original thread for reference.

    http://www.thadpg.com/forums/showthread.php?t=15976

    I compiled the information below for ease of viewing and access. If I need to add something please post it here and I will edit this post.

    Quote Originally Posted by El_Terrible View Post
    It is a Mac problem. If you're using OSX Lion, you can't run the PBSetup at all, you have to do it manually by downloading the files from EvenBalance. The files are crap though. I updated 2 days ago when I got kicked and the notice to update. Can't connect to any PB server for more than a few minutes. I've put in a support ticket at EvenBalance outlining the issue. There is clearly something very wrong with the htm files. There is a base file called pbsec.htm for users that is actually deleted from my hard drive every time I get kicked for a PB failure (which is all of the time right now).

    If you have COD4 that you bought at the App Store, PB was already installed inside it. PB hasn't been updated in over a year, which is before Apple even sold it at the App Store. To update PB in the App Store version, you need to find COD4 in the Finder and option-click and select "Show Package Contents". Inside the folder that opens, look for "Call of Duty 4 Data". Open that and you will see a folder called "pb". The files you download from EvenBalance.com need to go inside the pb/htm folder.

    I have read reports that people with this App Store version have had success, but they are probably completely wrong. They are either not playing on PB servers or they are playing on servers with a longer gap between PB server checks. I was able to play our glorious TDM server for a few minutes before getting the heave-ho. Other servers I've tried, I get kicked before I can even select a weapon.

    My point here is DO NOT use the PB update files until you hear they have been fixed. They will only bring frustration and seething rage.

    If you haven't gotten all of the other files, they are below and go in Call of Duty 4 Data/pb/htm/

    http://www.evenbalance.com/downloads/cod4/pbsec.htm
    http://www.evenbalance.com/downloads/cod4/mc002301.htm
    http://www.evenbalance.com/downloads/cod4/ma001407.htm
    It's fixed.

    Okay, read what I posted, please. Those 3 files were the original files that were posted by EvenBalance and did not fix the problem, but you do need them. The mc002301.mac file I linked to was missing from the original update. I've installed that and the original 3 update files and have had absolutely no problem play, as I have been on our server for the last 30 minutes (about 6 times longer than the bad update) and I played a server last night for about 20 minutes that I previously was getting kicked immediately.

    If you are putting the files in the right place and it's still not working for you - then you are not putting the right files in the right place.

    I would also like to post the reply from Evenbalance.com for my ticket, Hope it helps:


    As for Windows, you can just go ahead and use the PBSetup.exe to update.

    Re: PunkBuster MAC Problem Fix. Credit to El_Terrible

    If a Mac user who has it working doesn't mind taking the time, I could use a screenshot of the expanded COD4 data folders and what files are supposed to be in there. I suspect I have corrupted files and should delete the ones I don't need. Or perhaps I'll just uninstall/reinstall PB

    Dude, u can just go to the CoD4 file, and delete the whole "PB" folder. then go bk into game, and now u should still be kicked by PB. But PB will reinstall the folder u hv just deleted, so it makes all the files there.After this, follow wad @El_Terrible said, add those files in, and u shld be able to play

    It worked for me too! I was able to play 3 or 4 full games of Search earlier, and didn't get kicked at all. I haven't tried any servers other than our S&D though. Hopefully it works.

    Re: PunkBuster MAC Problem Fix. Credit to El_Terrible

    Ok, I may be a numbskull but I am still unable to get COD4 to work because of the PB issue. I have a Mac and am running the Lion OS. I have tried everything suggested on the Forum to no avail. If someone can just spell it out, step by step, perhaps I can get my shooting on!
    Thanks in advance,
    HeyMoe

    Re: PunkBuster MAC Problem Fix. Credit to El_Terrible

    El_Terrible has the right solution. After banging my head against a wall to get this thing fixed, I discovered that to find the dll and htm folders in COD4/data/PB, you must open Finder, press Command+Shift+G at the same time. Then enter "~/Library" and press "Go." Open the file labeled Application Support, then COD4, then PB. There you will find the dll file and the htm files. Follow El_Terrible's advice and place the files as such:

    http://web1.evenbalance.com/downloads/cod4/mc002301.mac Place this file in the dll folder.

    And place the following in the htm folder:

    http://www.evenbalance.com/downloads/cod4/pbsec.htm
    http://www.evenbalance.com/downloads/cod4/mc002301.htm
    http://www.evenbalance.com/downloads/cod4/ma001407.htm

    I
    downloaded the files, saved them to my desktop as file source not web archive and then dragged them to the appropriate files described above. Miraculously, I have ben able to get my kill on without getting kicked. Now my wife is not happy! Hope this helps.

    Re: PunkBuster MAC Problem Fix. Credit to El_Terrible

    Here is the problem and why many of you still cant beat the punkbuster problem. the pb folder you must update is in the Data folder. Mine wasn't, it was outside. Also the default puts it in the user/library/application support/cod4 folder

    So , use your pbsetup, add COD4 as the game and use it to deposit the pb folder *IN* the data folder. Then you can deposit your mc002301.mac fill in the dll folder within and you are sweet.

    Solved! Was messing around, just swapped out previously added new files for some NEW new files and it worked. Go figure. But I've got my shoot back on!
