For anyone deleting this game keep in mind the Anti cheat program will remain in your computer and the only way to remove it is with a tool.... http://www.evenbalan...downloads/pbsvc this will have a option to install or remove it.

windows 10 blocks you from removing it..
and if you go to punkbuster they have no info on how to remove it! not even a mention that you cant.

Actually good to know. Why have punk buster? has it stopped/caught anyone from cheating? I doubt it.


Hhour did use punk buster before. They have never stated that they got rid of it from what I know.. Maybe they did though, but if you downloaded punk buster when they made you
do it, its still on my computer is all I know, its defiantly from H-Hour not some other game.

Most games use battle eye as far as i know punkbuster is useless and the only time I heard of it was when HHour said they were implementing it.

I think it was originally implemented and then taken down pretty quick from active status, it was said by people to be causing some issues. That's based off memory, but it's not actively used by the game at this time from what I understand.

Maybe we'll be retold again, but in the mean time seems like it's not a huge issue, good thing we got this post...

Be apart of the solution, not the problem. Tweet me your vids, posts, and streams @EViLGLENi

It may be still implemented into the game but not active, meaning the game still has the system in place (so it downloads onto your PC, etc..) but it doesn't actually do anything.

You do not need punkbuster to play H-Hour but may need for other games. In previous patches, pb was installed but not activated as the hope was one day, EvenBalance would get it working for us.  It has been awhile and we are moving on to other methods so now removing.

 

Wait to uninstall until after the patch is out as if you do so now, it will just reinstall itself.  Also, punkbuster can be removed using control panel/programs/uninstall a program for all platforms except Win10.  No need to download anything special.

 

_________________________

 

EDIT:  As with all thing Windows 10, there is a difference when uninstalling on the platform.  The uninstall requires admin permissions.  Easy way to get around this is use the actual application for punkbuster supplied with H-Hour.  If you have uninstalled H-Hour, you will need to go to evenbalance.com to download their pbsvc application as suggested by Ranger:

 

1. If you are running Win10, go  to your game folder:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\H-Hour Worlds Elite

 

2. Right-click on the file pbsvc_hhr and select "Run as Administrator".

 

3. When it runs, select the Uninstall option.
