I have been getting this problem, every time I try to connect to a PB enabled server, I get kick as soon as the loading screen ends, it says I have been kick for 0 mintues for "Inadequate O/S Privileges". I have searched online and there is one fix, is to modify my system configuration to be an administrator equivalent from PunkBuster's perspective, I logged on as Administrator and added my account to the following privileges: Debug Programs Load and unload device drivers Manage auditing and security log Modify Firmware environment values Profile Single Process Take Ownership of Files or other objects
But I cannot add my account to Debug Programs, anyone know how i fix this? I just want to play some BF1942 online, but I cant get in any PB servers, what is going on here? am I the only one getting this error message?
WHy can't you just log on as admin and change your user account settings from limited to System Admin? Or is there a problem that prevents that?
Try reloading BF42 or the 1.6 patch, other than that all I can say is punkbuster is gay shit and has a lot of friggin issues and they couldve picked a system that didnt have so many damn issues :(
yeah i totally agree with you, punkbuster is gay, its just too many server has PB, they should have at the least some servers that doesnt have PB, but there are not many... hopefully i can reinstall the patch, thanks.
Finally someone who understands the PB conspiracy :p
lol cyber :D
Ive got the same prob, but it kicks me off a few minutes into the game, instead of right away. Its rediculous how many problems punkbuster has. If anyone knows how to fix any punkbuster problems like mine please reply. :nodding: Thanks. By the way, i think its stupid punkbuster has so many issues but i think we should be blaming the cheaters who caused the need for punkbuster in the first place. Yea, the makers of PB messed up some stuff but there shouldnt be a need for it in the first place. Damn cheaters i hate them so much, always ruining my gaming. :mad:
i get kicked from server not just PB servers and it really sux
I had the same problem when i first installed the game. I imagine you're running XP. All you have to do is change your account to administrator in control panel. PB does this cause it thinks someone is remotely accessing your PC and tinkering with it, or indeed perhaps playing BF 1942.
