I didn't make it!
I seem to be having a problem with this particular thing, and the server kicking me out occasionaly, and i dont know why, as i dont have anything that should do so, all i get is "You were kicked because of the MD5 Tool" or what ever that is, and its annoying, any one know what it is how to solve or turn it off or what ever so i can play normal? Would realy appreciate the help.
The punkbuster MD5 checks enable you to not only make sure they have the required files but that they are unmodified in any way to prevent them being used for cheating.
It seems that the servers that kick you believe that you are cheating, try removing any mods that you have and try again.
Uhhh, make sure you have the COD 1.5 patch installed aswell as the UO 1.51 patch, I assume you are playing that. Otherwise, I don't know.
Be easier to know what it is kicking you for, What is message it gives you when you are kicked. That way somebody can help you solve the problem.
firstly, any help about pb kicks are better answered at www.punksbusted.com.
Secondly, any MD5 tool mistaches which are NOT genuine hacks can be rectified easiley by deleting the file config_mp.cfg in the COD main folder, and configuo_mp.cfg file in the uo folder.
I also like the above keep getting the error mesage:MD5 Tool Mismatch..And why does punkbuster keep kicking people for usuing mods that dont interfere with the operation of the game..In some instances a good mod can realy make the game better,so long as it does not result in wall hacks and aim bots getting used which gives us all a bad name..
a failed MD5 check is usually down to network problems - pb cannot verify the MD5 check. It has nothing to do with pb - its a network problem.
Very few GOOD mods give a MD5 mismatch, coz any alteration to the standard settings still fall within the acceptable pb parameters.
