Everyone,

Evenbalance believe they now have a fix for this lag/spike/stall issue, and they have tested it out on Puggy's server as well as some others and have confirmed the fix. They are now rolling it out publicly and your servers should autoupdate to the new version automatically in the next little while.

Thanks to Puggy for offering up his server to us/Evenbalance to help resolve the issue.

Cheers,

John
Will it require a re-boot?

If PB was already running, then no, however if you change the status of PB, you need a restart of the game.

If PB is running and you want to force the update, I think you can do the following in the Web Console Management Console: pb_sv_update this will only work if PB was already running.

Hmm. We took ss's up until our last player left last night. I'm going to check now and see whats changed since then.

**edit** screenshots still working for me: (V.1.837 | A1372 c2.278)

If you can get your server and/or your client to update to those numbers, please full us in on how to do it.... ;)

I have the appropriate files in all the right places, but pb_sv_ver still reports the same as I posted previously. I'd be interested to know if anyone gets those version numbers.....

Yeah, I manually updated the server and client files this morning. Restart, the whole nine yards. I've been running PB servers since CoD, so its not like I'm unfamaliar with evenbalance.

Yet still, while the servers PB log file read:
PunkBuster Server for HOS (v1.840 | A1372 C2.280) Enabled
pb_sv_ver continued to return what I posted above.

*Edit*

Just minutes ago, it updated...

@Zetsumei
The update is live now and screenshots are being taken.
Taken after the update.

I've tried the screen shot feature several times today. If I make one of myself, then it works. The screen shot of my game session is in the svss folder as expected, but if i make one of an other player, then there only is an HTML file with the text Screenshot was not returned by Client. Does this mean that they somehow managed to turn it off at client side?

The players could be alt-tabbed out of the game when the shots are taken.

I don't think that that is the case here, because I did try it on several other players (just testing the feature). The only screen shot taken was of my game. On all other players it failed.
