..In SemperFi#5 and i was somehow disconnected. No big deal, it happens every now and then. But when i joined back, i played a while and got killed. So when i tryed to respawn, i couldn't and the next thing i know, i was kicked. And the reason was that i "had been kicked before". Great. I have never played on that server untill today and did nothing wrong there. No killibase-camping, friendly killing and got kicked. I tryed to join a few times more, but the same thing happened again. So i tryed playing on a another server and the same thing happens again. Boy i'm pissed now.. Somehow i need to know what i did wrong and what can i do about it. I would be gratefull for any and all assistance.
Poor you :smack: This thread =:spam: Why not post in the servers forums?
Did you get a punkbuster message when you were kicked? I've been playing on that server too had no problems. A few days ago PB got updated and for some people pb does not update automatically so you have o do it yourself. Also if you haven't got pb enabled you will be kicked too.
If you weren't kicked by punkbuster you can always be kicked for a high ping, a playername that's not allowed or for a clanmember.
You can't connect if you don't have PB enabled.
It was a punkbuster kick, yes. And it's enabled, so i guess i'll have to update it. And that's done how?:p
Nope didn't change a thing. Apparently it was allready updated. I still get this..
Sit in a EA Coral sea server. You need to be in there as the map rotates and coral sea server rounds seem to take less time than it takes to goto PB's web site and update.
Is there any way i can solve this? I'm getting kicked from every server.. And frankly, it isn't quite nice. If you know what i mean..:mad:
I think people have been getting kicked lately by punkbuster because they are not logged in as administrator in win XP. There's a way to fix this somehow. I saw this at the wolf forum. Maybe this is your prob?
Why does PunkBuster now require players to run the game as an administrator under WinXP/2K?
Because some cheats/hacks cannot be detected otherwise.
Is there some way to modify my system configuration to be an administrator equivalent from PunkBuster's perspective?
Yes (under Win XP Pro or Win 2K). This can be accomplished by setting certain privileges for the user that will run the game. To do this, first temporarily log in as an Administrator. Then go to Control Panel => Administrative Tools => Local Security Policy. This will open up the Local Security setting window. Expand the Local Policies folder and select User Rights Assignment. This will bring up a list of security settings for the computer. You will need to add the user that will be launching the game to have the following privileges. If the user is logged in while making changes, the user must be logged out and back in for the changes to take effect.
Debug Programs Load and unload device drivers Manage auditing and security log Modify Firmware environment values Profile Single Process This is done by double clicking on the setting and then the "Add User or Group" button. You can either type the user or group name into the field or click on advanced to select from a list. If you select advanced, you may need to click on the "Object Types" button and make sure all 3 boxes are checked. Then click "OK". Click on the "Find Now" button to generate a full list of all users and groups on the system. Highlight the user you want to add the rights to and click "OK". Keep clicking "OK" untill you are back at the Local Security Settings window. Repeat this process for the rest of the list. That user will now be able to play on PB servers without getting kicked for "Inadequate O/S Privileges".
