Ok guys here's the deal, I have been playing COD/UO for about 2 years with absolutely no problems whatsoever, then about 5 weeks ago i join a game and bamm it freeze's up, after about 1min the game unfreeze's and i can continue to play but with no sound. This happens everytime i join a server now, the game will freeze for about 40secs to a min and then unfreeze but with no sound. I have tried everything i can think of, i have updated drivers, reinstalled the game, reformatted my comp, tried with different graphic's card's, tried with and without my soundcard, updated PB manually, tried using every combination of sound and graphic's settings there are, but nothing has worked, the game is still freezing up and then unfreezing but i have no sound. It only happens on servers that have PB enabled, i can play on non PB servers till the cows come home, but as soon as i join a PB enabled server it freeze's up. Here are my spec's rigsigey9.gif It really has me stumped as i have been playing for so long with no problems, oh and i can play every other game in my collection with no problems, and most of them are PB protected. Any help you can give me will be much apreciated, as i am in a COD/UO clan and i havnt been able to play for 5 weeks :bawl: :bawl:

Those are server PB settings - they wont work client-side.

Try performing a manual update of PB, as it had an upgarde recently to a new version.

Visit here:

Download and run pbsetup.exe and see if the update works.

Thanks for the advice Tally, but unfortunately the PB update did'nt work, it was one of the first things i tried (after reading numerous forums threads) i have tried all of the fixes that have been posted on different forums but none have worked, just to be sure i have just run the PB update again and it's still the same, here is a screenshot of the console just after the game unfreeze's, i dont know really know what i am looking at but the two top lines look interesting, can anyone see anything wrong here ?? coduomp2006110105170804pc1.jpg Anyway thanks for your reply. {FEAR}Toker

Your screenshot of your console is normal, if your talking about the voicechat lines, its all good, developers leave stuff in that isn't used. Its possible that they were thinking of having voice chat ingame, but decided to disable it. Do you have a built in sound card or added sound card(Soundblaster,etc.)

Hey Angel_Eyes, yes i have a Audigy 2zs, but i have tried running the game without it installed using only onboard sound but it is still the freezing, thanks for letting me know the console screenshot is good though thats one less thing to worry about.

I am sure you have tried this, but worth asking, have you updated your sound card to the latest drivers? By the way, I had the same card, never had a problem with it. It seems to be conflicting with something like a program.

When your playing the game and it freezes then unfreezes with no sound, have you looked at the console to see if anything is there that shouldn't be?

Yes i have tried updating the drivers but it still freezes, and the screenshot i posted was taken directly after the game unfroze, i believe this is a PB issue as i can play on non PB servers with no problems whatsoever. Once again thanks for your help {FAER}Toker
