Punkbuster Q&A
6:00 AM | Galen Wiley | Comment on this story

Tony Ray, creator of the popular anti-cheating program/service, PunkBuster, sat down to have a little chat with the folks at HomeLAN Fed, to discuss PunkBuster's future in internet gaming. Such topics include new, upcoming features, future games to be supported, the status of Even Balance, the company responsible for PunkBuster, and more.

Here is a sneak peak of the full article:

However, the program got enough attention to warrant creating a company to help license Punkbuster to other programs and as Even Balance, Punkbuster got a huge break when id Software selected the program to be used to combat cheaters in their recent first person shooter Return to Castle Wolfenstein. “There was a mutual friend who knew some guys at id,” Ray said, “We’ve known id for more than a year now and the whole integration scheme into Wolfenstein was basically to see if it would really work. “ After the development of the Wolfenstein support was completed, Ray said that the publisher of the game Activision was happy with the way it turned out which allowed for plans to intergrate Punkbuster into Quake III Arena and Soldier of Fortune II in the near future. “It opened up a lot of doors to have us talk to a lot of developers and publishers,” Ray said, “and I think there is nowhere to go than up.”
