Ok, sorry if this was posted somewhere else, but I looked and didn't see it. Everytime I play on a FH server with Punkbuster, I can play fine for about 10-15 mins, then it takes me back to the Server list and shows me a window that says "Kicked (2 Min) Time Out Trying to Update Client." I really dont know what the problem is, I never had it before I formatted my hard drive, and only until recently has it started. In fact, just a day or so ago I uninstalled Bf1942 and reinstalled it and it still does it. I am connected through Cable if that makes a difference. Any suggestions to fix this? Thanks.
Sounds like a firewall problem. This is from the www.evenbalance.com website, you may need to open this port to allow punkbuster access to the master server.
PunkBuster for Battlefield 1942 uses outgoing UDP Port 14567 to communicate with Master Servers.
if it still doesn't work you may find more help on the punkbuster website.
I'll try that, but I've always had issues with opening ports on any game. That plus I use no firewall, at least no software firewall.
Download the "PBWEB" from EvenBalance. Place PBWEB in your PunkBuster folder and run it. You will be updated to the latest version.
