Unhappy Punkbuster


I need help. I have tried EVERYTHING to get this punk buster software working for Quake 3. The game works great, but I can't seem to get the damn PB software to update properly; thus, I am unable to play any of the arenas that have PB enabled. I have manulally updated, and that didn't do any good, I tried to do the little program that the have on their web site evenbalance dot com, but when I try and run the pbweb.x86..... I don't know how.... I tried like sh and ./ and both... and I don't know.... outta ideas... it won't update on it's own either..... I waited, and I keep getting throw outta the arena if I wait too long. PLEASE HELP!!!!!! If there is anyone out there that can help, it would really be apperciated.

PunkBuster (Q3A) Player Client Files
The following files are only needed if your PunkBuster doesn't update by itself. Right click the appropriate links below and choose "save as" to your "pb\htm" folder - make sure the file you save is saved with the filename shown below. Players only need the files that correspond to their Operating System, Server Admins need all six files.

Got it working

Thanks for your reply... but I thought about it over the night and came in and got it working! I had already done all the suggested.... but I forgot 1 thing...

If you wish to get the pbweb.i386 to execute, you must change the permissions of the file, which I forgot to do.
