For those that may not know, PunkBuster™
by Even Balance, Inc. is an Anti-Cheat software technology for online gaming.
PunkBuster is no longer contratced to support Far Cry 2. For ranked multiplayer Far Cry 2 gaming, PunkBuster is required to be enabled on both the server and client which can be a problem with new installs of the game because the PunkBuster client will now not update automatically and you can no longer manually get the required updates from the PB website. Also, after the 1.03 patch the game's remote admin functions broke so now PB is the only way to remotely administor a Far Cry 2 server. Server utilities exist
but these do not function remotely.
I've made available for download a Far Cry 2 PunkBuster install.
Server version v1.734
| A1392 C2.159
Client version v2.159
If you are having PunkBuster issues then try installing this pack (save your original pb folder first).
-make a copy of your original pb folder
-remove pb folder from game install
-add the downloaded pb folder to game install
\Far Cry 2\bin\pb

I have a Far Cry 2 server currently running. All welcome. Capture the Diamond and Uprising gametypes are played on the server. More details on all of this soon.
