I play on a server that has punkbuster enabled and after about a 1/2 hour i get kicked from the server for trying to update PB cient. I have tried manualy updating it through punkbuster and /pb_sercurity 0. nothing in the tech disussion is helping:confused:
It happens to alot of people and that's a problem cause it's not making the game any fun .... I know it happened to me too , probably was the server , but i don't play it online so i don't really care about the bugs .... They messed up the sorting by ping too .... Sometimes it shows the lowest pings on top of the list sometimes it doesn't .... It's garbage ....
um you do realize that inorder to sort by ping, you have to let the program finish polling for servers right? because it sorts the servers it has at the time of when you hit the ping section, and any servers polled after that will just be in the order of which they were polled. If I remember correctly BF1942 was the same way. And if you carefully read the name of the 3 meg patch it has the word server in the name. As far as PB goes, Pethegreat did you try manually updating from www.evenbalance.com ?
Yes. That was bs. I cant find those folders any where:confused:. Ii hate Punk Buster:mad: BTW this is off topic but some what funny to me I am a member of a clan called Punks With a Plan :lol: We should sabotauge PB:cool:
That's exactly my point .... Ping sorting doesn't work as in BF1942 at all .... have fun ....
I don't ever have problems with Sort By Ping in BF1942 and since the release of the v.1.01 patch for BF:V, I don't have any problems with Sort By Ping in there either. Anyone else having trouble with this?
I checked out a server that beef flaps suggested in another thread, and I ran into the same problem that ya'll have had, getting kicked from servers for PB timing out while trying to update. this is the first time that i have run into this, and went back to my clans server and played for 45 minutes without an issue. we also run punk buster as well. given what i have seen i would have to say that this is infact a server issue.
NFC, you're probably right. I was in the same server and got booted for the same problem. (you might have seen me, when you were trying to blow up a tower) :) I went and updated to the latest PB manually, but I didn't hop back in to see if it did anyhting. Never happened to me before on any other server. As for the Ping search, I never had any problems either. BF or BFV (since 1.01)
PB kisks me all the time for no reason.
yep, does it to me too, it's very annoying :mad:
