I install ET runs like crap, and I'm kicked from every server before my games even done loading, im even kicked from my own servers. I got vista, I downloaded the 2.60b which from what I hear is supposed to make it work fine with vista, all it did was make it skip like every 5 second every thing freezes jolts forward then continues on over and over. I run it as admin, and with running it as admin the patches do not apply to it so its screwed no matter what I do.
Download and install in this order...............
And then the 2.60b patch and I also found this helpful for ET players on Vista.
If you are having trouble playing on Windows Vista here is a fix for the problem. Right-click the icon on your desktop and go under the compatibility tab. Check the box next to run as administrator and also check the box next to compatibility and set it to Windows XP.
Make sure you update Punkbuster with PB_Setup! DOWNLOAD HERE
well thanks for your help, but I had all that, and that patch screwed up my entire computer last time I had, seems abit far fetched but installing and uninstalling over and over the problems kept comeing back each time the patch was put on. But I dont like the game enough to get too upset
