This allowed to modify this file? orthis prohibition?
I can distribute it as a solution to the problem of PB kicked for not being updated?
Is there any way to be downloaded automatically from our serviodres?
the pbcl.db file is generated when PB installs and updates itself from the official installer files from my PB package. I didn't have any problem getting PB to install its files and services by simply copying the contents of my PB package to the PB directory. When I connected to a PB enabled server, the local PB server which runs along every ET server running PB (independently from EvenBalance) detected the installers and did all the work.
However, this wasn't done from an ET 2.55 install, but from a 2.60 patched install, so I don't know if you might have had issues for not having patched ET to 2.60 before using the installers from my PB package. By the way, these installers are simply the last PB installer files available from the EvenBalance site for all Windows, Linux and MacOSX - all I did was put them together in a single package.
As to your concern about distributing a modified version of pbcl.db, if it were me, I wouldn't care less. I won't say here what I think of EvenBalance and Activision for interrupting PB support for ET without any warning the way they did, because what I have to say would probably be against these forums rules, but you can read it at my own forums at http://forums.noobsforever.net
in the respective topic in the Announcements forum.
In any case, you do need to have generated an ETKEY file and placed it in the ETMAIN directory BEFORE copying the contents of the PB package and then connecting to a PB enabled server to have PB installed.
