Where's the file where you can set the pb check settings permanently, so you dont have to enter it every game?

Enter the command

Code:

pb_writecfg
In the console. This saves it to hdd.

If that don't work,

Code:

pbwrite_cfg
But pretty sure its the first one.

PB_Sleep [Period]
Holds the period of time (milliseconds) that PunkBuster "sleeps" between processing cycles; the default is 60; lower numbers will cause PunkBuster to process events more times each second which also has the effect of increasing the bandwidth used by PunkBuster; Players with a modem connection will probably want to set this as high as possible

Its for setting Punkbuster to do a check every 500 miliseconds compared to the standard 20 miliseconds. Doing this basically frees up some of your bandwidth that Punkbuster was using. To do this, follow the following steps:

1. Load up the game and join any server (empty ones are good)
2. Spawn at any spawn point and any kit
3. Hit the ` key (unless you changed the console key)
4. Type "PB_sleep 500", then hit enter
5. Type "PB_writecfg", then hit enter

PD_sleep sets the value of how long PB waits to check again (I'm not sure exactly what it checks/scans). PB_writecfg saves the PB file you just edited.

You can also do that offline but that is a bit annoying if you dont know how to change the .txt to .cfg
