In laymans terms, what has happened is that back in June, PunkBuster initiated a change to their software in order to close the door on a particular hack. In doing so, they made changes that cause the server to kick players from the server with a No Packet Flow error. The NPF error is displayed in the game, so only the players that are NOT kicked see it, the player that got kicked does not, all they see is a Server Disconnected error.

A no packet flow condition is created whenever a map round starts and a player has not yet finished loading the map. This is what is happening to you, and it is why I suggested trying the fix I pmd you about. When WildWest version 1.6 is release, we will be making a change that will prevent this from happening. We had contacted Punkbuster and had received a couple of "fixes" that did not fix the problem. The warmup times will be lenghtened, which will allow players to get the map loaded before the match starts. Hang in there.

Gizmoright now im running a 128mb RAM 900 mhz athlon, with 32mb geforce 2 video

IMO your comp is fast enough to play WW but your RAM is a bit less, RAM is very cheap so you should buy another 128MB Dimm (better 256). This would decrease your maploading time for sure - at least if the map loads the second time! Also you could install a minimal Linux System which makes you able to use nearly ALL RAM for ww instead for things which you dont need while gaming. I installed such a Linux some time ago which used only 8MB RAM after booting - so 120MB left for WW! If you want try out I could help you - You would just need about 0.7 - 1.5GB free Diskspace for that expetiment.

Rudi, couldn't you also create a bootable Linux CD rom disk and run it from there?

this is a good Idea!! A minimal bootable linux/WW system! It could also use the big pk3s from the Windows HD to make maploading faster than from CD. The only prob I see is that it should run on all Hardware - here could be the 3D grafik problematic. Maybe I need to restrict myself for NVIDIA only which I could test here. Or I could use an existing Linux-CD Distro with good Hardware detection and modify it for WW. So I add this project to my ToDo list :)

Si knoppix is very good and has a good hardware detection but its a very big CD-Distro. I thought about small projects which also bases on Knoppix: http://www.wikiverse.org/feather-linux http://www.wikiverse.org/damn-small-linux

But until know I found no CD-Linux which runs hardware accelerated 3D-graphics out of the box. The reason might be ATI's/NVIDIA's driver license problem. So I need to learn how to remaster a CD Distro and then I try to create a minimal bootable WW-CD (perhaps inclusive browser, TS, ICQ-client). (similar to the bootable emovix video-CDs where is an 8MB Linux-system+Movie installed: http://freshmeat.net/projects/emovix/
