The App Store distributes the software. The developers support it and updates for it. Punkbuster is supported in-game by the developers (not by Apple), and problems with it need to be taken up with the develoeprs of the game and Evenbalance.

I am aware of all these things... this awareness is working
But the fact is that now in App store is a 30 euro game which is being sold and it doesnt even work and there is no warning for it..
So App Store needs to get in on this too and complain to evenbalance and Activision..

Thanks for replying!

I have to agree that there is too much pressure put on development departments nowadays..
They are devolping just to have results...
You are right.. we should stop updating, rather just stop and smell the roses! ;-)

Yes and now. As long as App Store is usable on new macs only, it should not include PPC apps, as App Store cannot run on that generation. True, Snow Leopard is last to support PPC apps via Rosetta, and this should be the preoccupation of the user to check compatibility. Unfortunately, many do not read these minimal requirements, and hasten to update not knowing they are not compatibile with Lion, even if the PPC issue on Lion has been discussed in millions of threads, I guess.

Well! True... BUT.... I have been playing this on Lion since lion came out... so it HAS been working.
There cant be a compatibility issue AFTER the release..
But then again yes... Evenbalance! What are you doing?
I guess thousands of people by now have reported this to evenbalance..
But its stupid that they dont admit anything... I just want to see a post from them on whats going on..
...so far nothing... now im gonna try and install a dual win 7 boot and see if i can play it from there...
,,,, lets see what happens

I can confirm that this is happening OSX snow leapord 10.6.8. I have tried manually updating punkbuster and I keep getting kicked from servers for having outdated version! This is a dissapointment. My COD4 is also from the AppStore.

It's happening to everyone on a Mac.... Aspyr is on top of it and apparently so is EvenBalance.
Aspry Support thread:

I'm also affected, lodged a ticket and yet not received a response. I thought companies like Evenbalance, Aspyr or Apple would have resolved matters of this nature before they affect the general public..what a joke..!!
In any event I hope this gets fixed ASAP

I'm also affected. My MW is a apple store bought hardcopy with the disc etc. I was having the trouble in OSX 10.6.8 and upgraded all the PB files as directed, did not work. I upgraded to Lion to see if that might help and peed away my PPC stuff in the process, but the PB issue is still the same.
Waiting on the necessary update/fix from someone at Aspyr, Evenbalance, or Apple and ****** off about the wait and the issue.
What is this? Microsoft?
Currently Being ModeratedMay 19, 2012 12:57 AM (in response to Boas Jonsson)
So they claimed to have fixed it!
BUT!!! They havent... they say that you should download a htm file and paste it into the COD4 pb/dll folder....
WHAT DLL folder.... who has a dll folder in mac=?!?!?!?!
Im still getting fu**in ****** about this,..
In lion, there is no dll OR htm folder !!!!!!!
Gimme strenght man!!!
Here is the reply from Evenbalance!
Note #3: Thank you but Mac does not have a DLL folder...
Ill paste it to the PB folder and see if it works!
05/18/2012 15:11:45 - "Adam D" Note #2: We are aware that many Mac users are having problems since Version 2.301 of the PB Client for COD4 was released for auto-update on Monday. Unfortunately for those users, a manual update may be required.

LOTS of confusion becasue of PunkBuster... and might I add a little less than helpful for all the problems they have created this week... Carelss implementation across a wide spectrum of users.
People that own the CD version seem to have a fix... People who bought from the App Store are still being kicked.
I myself, do not have a "dll" folder. I have a "pb" folder with files inside... but no "dll". I placed the .mac file into the "pb" folder but still being kicked. I have tried each and EVERY solution on multiple boards listing remedies and procedures. Still beign kicked...
Standing by for Apple and PB to get their act together.... App store is a "1 Stop Store"... why am I even dealing with PunkBuster and putting code and files into a game I bought from App Store????
