So Evenbalance has decided to release an Punkbuster update..

This update is not compatible with Lion OSX anymore cause it simply doesnt work.

 

Cause Lion does not support PowerPC anymore i have to try and update it manually but no luck.

 

There seems to be an world wide issue with this noe!

 

First of all: I bought my Call of Duty 4 through App Store.

 

APP STORE?!?!?!? App Store is supposed to take care of these matters....

They are still selling it on appstore which means they are selling a faulty program on app store!!!!

 

Ive filed a lots of complaints to Evenbalance.com as well.... Something needs to be done here.

You cant just sell a product and then make it stop work in the middle of it!!!

 

Ive been playing for the past year with my iMac on Lion OSX and it has worked fine..

 

Someone needs to fix something here... otherwise i want my money back!!!

 

Has anyone found a workaround for this?

iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.5)

    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.

    Yep, return your system to Snow Leopard 10.6.8.

    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.

    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 I have tried manually updating punkbuster and I keep getting kicked from servers for having outdated version!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.

    this is also happening to me on OS X Lion - my copy is not from the app store though, I bought it off of Amazon (hard copy, I have the cd, etc.)

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

    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?

    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????

     

     

    Standing by....
