Hey guys. I'm really PISSED off. Punk buster is a heap of shit. Every 15 minutes it crashes and say's "Timed out, punkbuster updating" or some shit. I get kicked out, but no one else does... as far as I know. Whats going on? Also today I scored a basic sniper medal and when I went back into the game again it wasn't there, nor were any of the games I played! WHAT THE HELL!?!? (Yes I was in a ranked server) THIS IS PISSING ME OFF!

Punkbuster can be a punk in itself at times.

As far as your stats, do we know for sure how soon they'll show up in the bfhq? With all the activity tonight, their servers may be overwhelmed. I had trouble just logging my account a few times already tonight.

Im not too worried about the stats thing. ITS FUCKING PUNKBUSTER THAT SUX!!! GRRRRR I HATE IT SOOO MUCH. I can't play the game for 15 minutes without it kicking me out of a server with that dumbass message. I tried updating it at the website but it still doesn't work. Punkbuster is useless. Firstly, it doesn't stop cheaters and secondly it kicks me out for some fucked up reason, and thirdly its a friggin waste of time!

Please watch your language and thread titles and also post in the correct forum, this should either be in Rants and Raves or Problems, depends whether you are asking for help or just complaining.

the best way to get around your punkbuster problem is to manually update punkbuster, using the PB Web utillity. Hit this link, and follow the directions. http://www.punkbuster.com/index.php?page=updatepb.php Gunny

if you are still getting kicked for PB trying to update, and you have run PB web, then ya got me man. go to their website, and see if they have a FAQ, or help section. I don't have a whole lot of experience with working out PB problems. The only time I had a problem (like you are having now), I manually updated PB using PB web, and it fixed it right as rain. The only other thing I can think of is, if the port PB uses to update, is closed in either your firewall or router. Gunny.

Try here: http://www.evenbalance.com/index.php?page=dl-bf2.php Right click on For Players, and save as to your PB folder. Also, scroll down and do a "save as" for the two PB clients for Win32 if you have Windows, and there's also two for Mac and Linux. If this doesn't work, then you got me. :uhm:
