I was playing a good ole game of 2142 when the game kicked me from the server and showed a punkbuster message box with nothing in it. Wtf? its been doing this since i started playing 3 weeks ago. A little help Please?
Have you tried going to PUNKBUSTER'S website and updating your pb manually ? Do you have a router ? did you open the ports on the router to allow it free communication ?
it only started to really become a problem today. And this was only happened when i played on knife servers
I've started having this problem as well, I was playing fine with no errors and then didn't play for about two months. Since trying to play again I have been getting blank PunkBuster messages.
Something of note; just before I lose server connections a message appears at the bottom of the screen "PB Loosing packets" and then a bunch of numbers...
Edit: I found this in one of the other threads;
GeneralCleanPunkbuster released a new update and is doing this to several people. The solution is this:
Tuesday 04.17.2007 [12:15PM] Version 1.701 of the PB Client for BF2142 has been released to our PB Master Servers for auto-update and to our website download page. Release Notes for PB Client v1.701:
So in other words you need to go to http://www.evenbalance.com/downloads/pbsvc/pbsvc.exe and download that program. Basically all this does is let you run the game without admistration rights, which in XP we are always running adminstration rights, and puts two new services that run in the background which are called "PunkA.exe" & "PunkB" But none the less now with the new update you have to run these two services while you are connected to a punkbuster server.
- the new PB services are no longer optional, see our PB Services FAQ for more info
- the new PB services now support 64 bit flavors of Windows

What's the RDX?
RDX demo pack got that error to stop. Now i have an error that says invalid screen and kicks me. Whaa? i Just got the loosing packets error now lol
i could still use some help
The losing packets error is your internet connection not recieving. That is about all i can tell you on that one. Get a program like winmtr and trace to the ip you are playing on and check for lost packets.
If you have a router, and the correct ports are not open, this can also cause you this issue.
What is RDX? I do not know what that is short-hand for and cannot offer suggestions.
