Iv decited to go back to RTCW after playing some other game like ET and Bf1942 for a long time.

I installed RTCW downloaded the 1.4 full install patch installed it, and when i joi na server the game locks up or crashes with and error every 15 second or so when im i nthe server.

My system

Athlon xp 2500+ @ 2.3ghz 1gb pc3200 Ati 9700pro Abit NF7-S 2.0

Windows xp Home.

Iv tried Ati's 4.5 drivers and 4.4, i tried going back to stock system speeds and still no go. Im about to just give up on RTCW cuss i quit last time because of this problem. I cant tell what the error is cuss it doesnt tell me it just says an Error Happend, sometimes the whole thing just sits thier without an error and i have to hard reboot. This is the only game t hat this happens on in my game. I have gamesl ike BF1942, ET, Ut2004 and 2003, Need for speed underground ect no problems at all.

Can anyone help me please im dying here.

When I do a clean install of wolf it will crash after a few seconds to. Everything works fine but in about 15 sec it crashes. I have solved it by upgrading punkbuster manually with this program: pbweb Scroll down for the download links. Place the file in the map "PB" and run it. At first it will take some time to complete the process. I only need to do this ones after a clean install of wolf. After that it should upgrade itself ingame automaticly.

I also had that error if I did not turn on PB. If you did. Then you should disable and then enable it. Then run the program again.

Yes, if you got problems with PB, then it really sux. But if not then you don't care.

Now lets try this: Delete the PB folder and reinstall the patch. Now it should install PB again. Run pbweb and then try it out.
