I agree, my friend who uses a 56k connection before the PB patch for bf1942 was able to play on servers fine, untill the 1.6 patch or whatever.

See this is what I am saying... It isn't right that PunkBuster has taken over the game like they have. It is like we paid $40 for a cheat program and not a game.

I hate PB too. I mean, playing with hackers is annoying, but playing with crippling lag is worse imo.

being kicked for packet loss is not 'connection type' specific (meaning only dialup will get kicked! i get kicked once in awhile, and i have a good cable connection)..although, if your connection is slow, your almost guarenteed to get it. to my understanding, if the map loads on the server faster then your computer loads it, then you'll get kicked for packet loss. when i'm in a WW server, with say 8-10 ppl, and the maps changes completely, the players that didn't get kicked (usually around 3 or so) wait for the ones that did get kicked to join back up. it's annoying and frustrating, but not as bad as trying to play with cheaters!

IMHO, PB is an excellent idea...they're just slackin big time!

I used to have problems with Americas Army because of PB. The only reason I don't have the problem now is that I uninstalled the game, because I couldn't play. No you don't have to pay for the game, but I played fine with a 56K connection and now that I have cable, I couldn't play any more. PB weirdness.
