BF1942 to Bust Punks

The Battlefield 1942 Website (thanks Frans) has word that punks beware, Even Balance's anti-cheat software is going back in time to World War II. Here's the word:
In response to the #1 request from the community, DICE & EA are proud to announce the inclusion of anti-cheat measures in the next patch for Battlefield 1942. The Battlefield team is committed to providing an exploit-free gaming environment for members of our community. Our goal is to have measures in place which address both current and future cheats. As such, after researching existing anti-cheat programs, we've determined that Punkbuster™ suits our purposes perfectly. We'll keep everyone updated as to our progress. For now, we have successfully integrated Punkbuster into the upcoming 1.6 patch and we're in the process of testing it.

I belive you are incorrectly informed here.

When punkbuster was working the amount of cheaters was very low.

The problem was, the punkbuster team was working as a 3rd party, Valve ingored em completely, so why should they have helped out someone that doesnt give a rats ass about it apparently (according to the interview with the pb team about it valve later pretty much copied their technology, this is prolly why I have as much respect for valve as an average american has for osama)


Either way, when a game fully supports pb(ie when the devs do) then it works great and fawless, I can bring examples from Raven shield where I have yet to encounter a single problem with it, or its updating.
Also you can have it on safely all the time, when you join a non pb server it will just tell you that the server doesn't use pb and let you continue anyways.
Very nice and simple to use.


And if you ask if it works, then yes it does, even private cheats(cheats used by a very small group of people) don't last very long and the team is constantly working on new methods and countering new cheats every day (hey its their job and they do it right).

So I have no problems with it, great tool and keeps the cheaters at bay.
