Ok i know a lot of people have been having problems with VISTA and Fh1/Punk buster. I got FH1 running in compatibility windows 98 with administrator mode on, and all that stuff, but when i try to conect to a PB server i get an error,"PB kickked me for 0 MINS sevice Abnormalty", is there anyone else now that is having this problem still and is there a way to fix it.
I send you a PM also, but figured I would post this here also in the case it helps others.
There probably will be no solution until either the FH developers create a patch for FH or vistas bugs get worked out. If it matters, I can tell you the exact problems that are being caused.
On Vista, FH.07 MUST be run in windows 98/me compatibility mode to be able to run correctly. Punkbuster IS compatible with the this, but, the latest update they created in October does have an issue with it that does not allow it to run properly. So either until FH developers create a patch allowing FH to run in Windows XP compatibility mode or vista gets its bugs worked out, there will be no solution. :(
Yes, after doing more research i found this out as well, thanks for the reply though. Is there any chance of a patch being made for FH0.7, maybe by the devs or by a comunity member who knows how to fix this?
Sgt. Garcia has has been trying to help me and others with this on the PFC website. From what hes told me he contacted the FH developers and have asked them to do just this, the developer that he had asked said that he would ask the others about it before giving a definite answer. I have not heard more about it so whether or not it will happen I do not know, but we can hope. And the more that show real interest in this maybe the more they notice and the more of a chance this becomes reality. :)
Yes i hope so, i wish a dev could post here their intentions at the least, i know they are busy Building Fh2, but i hope that does not mean they give up on the comunity that followed them so long, i like FH2, but i still like Fh1 as well and i hope they fix it. there are plenty of people having this problem beause i saw an 8 page thread on it somewhere around here.
Tweakguides.com reported today that there is a new Vista Compatibility Update available. If it helps in this case? No clue, but might be worth a try i guess. http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=943302
Sgt. Garcia was talking about something like this before, im not sure if this is what he was talking about but if it is it doesnt help our problem.
Hmmmm, just got a new computer with Vista, ran FH1 for around 10 minutes then a PB kick. Anymore scoop on the subject?
