PunkBuster support for SWAT4!
As you may know there's alot of cheaters, people who destroy the fairness and gameplay for people who are playing honestly - there's one good solution that also have a big community with alot of players.
That solution is named "PunkBuster".
I've contacted and asked evenbalance.com (creators of PunkBuster) if we as players as well serveradministrators could have the opportunity to integrate PunkBuster ourselves - but unfortunately it's required to be integrated within the source code level of the game, SWAT4 in this case. What i don't understand is why you haven't already been considering using PunkBuster as the anti-cheat software, it's not perfect but it's good enough and the community keeps it alive and supported well.
I don't think it would be too much to ask if you could talk to them about a future contract for SWAT4 and possibly other games you may provide to the online gaming community - it's both a win for you as well a win for gamers.
If you aren't convinced or willing to help a minor, why not for the SWAT4 community? What is it you'd need to release a patch with integration of PunkBuster? After all, organizations like PBBans and PunksBusted are handling bans, CVARs as well MD5's very well when it comes to new cheats.
It'd also be good to know what you, as developers, would need or want to know from the community to give SWAT4 PunkBuster support or other features. It's a good game and one of a kind, there doesn't have to be a new one: Don't re-invent the wheel, just improve it.
(P.S. Why aren't you patching the game anymore?)
Would a petition help?

Yes a really nice idea...But the support for SWAT is already dead...No way to get PB support or patch from the 2K..maybe in the new SWAT game I hope whoever gonna make it
And still no reply to your post from the 2K?...that`s bad.
