Look less than an inch above your post. Then look above that one.

Been playing with the color tweaker for weeks. Not so much as a kick. Even if they do scan for it, only thing they could do is kick you, not perma ban you. It would be as if I had a faulty install. The color tweaker doesn't edit the files in the same way the BF3 file tweaker does.

Try again.

This is taken from the thread you linked but didn't read:
They have no affiliation with Even Balance, owners and operators of PB. They are a third party that supports servers that use PB by sharing live ban data. That's it.
It's bannable. I wish it wasn't, but it is.

You're missing one thing though. PB by itself does not and has never banned anyone, all it can do is kick a player.
That's why PBBans is there, to keep the people detected by PB banned. If PBBans say they won't ban for it, you wont be banned for it.

That only goes for servers who ONLY stream to PBBans.... for now.

Even then it's still up to the server admin what is allowed.

Saying it's not bannable is not the truth just because PBBans said they wouldn't.

It's Punkbuster that would know, not the server admin.

They check the stream list . They decide what ban lists to stream to and all those third party hubs have different checks. All PB has to do is check your files against theirs, to make things easy they check against the files that are known to be modified by already released tools. If yours are modified then you're gone. Server Admin signs into third party live ban data hub and there is your name.

Got unlucky and jumped on a server to play with a friend but it bans for Realmware? Now you're banned from every server that streams ban data to that one.

Unless you know for certain that you will ONLY be playing on servers that stream ONLY to PBB then go for it.

I am not risking bf3+premium for colors.

I'm 25 ********! Aaand that's a chop! Dallas represent!

Even if they check for it it will just come out as a corrupt file. ZERO ways to tell it was modified on purpose. Kick? Unlikely. Ban? LOLOLOL!

That's not true, of course Punkbuster is capable of banning people.

Read how it actually works http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PunkBuster
