PunkBuster issues

Postby [FnG] Unholy Eve » Tue Jan 03, 2012 1:18 am

So a few of us have had issues with punkbuster lately kicking and banning for 2 minutes and after a quick read of the punkbuster issue topic on the BF3 forum it would seem that it's an issue that's not going to get fixed and has been like this since the start of BF2.

I've seen a few "fixes" posted in the topic and have found 3 that might resolve the issue.

Normally I get my fix and move on, but seeing as there are several threads for the same issue, i thought i would post.

Start by removing PB from both:
DRIVE/Battlefield3/PB
Users/USERNAME/App Data/Local/PB

I remove the contents, not the folders.

Download PBSETUP.EXE and run.
Add game BF3. Check for updated.
Reboot.

and http://www.pbbans.com/information.php?page=pbsvc#troubleshooting

With a bit of luck this might resolve some of the issues.

Hope this helps

But wait there's more:

Apparently you can ask someone who does have a working copy of the game and PB to provide you the PB folder from their BF3 folder which I will do below.

Also:

and:

I found this and did what it said. Although i deleted the pb folders and pbexe so afterwards when i tried to join a server it said i didnt have pb, so i clicked link to pbsetup, ran it, added bf3, updated, and this time it updated for a while, now it WORKS!!!

-First of all: Disable your firewall.-

1. Turn off PnkBstrA and PnkBstrB in TASKMANAGER under SERVICES! Make sure they are off, to do so look under Processes, they shudn't be there.
2. Delete pb files from GAME and AppData\Local\Punkbuster
3. Paste files of JayS_NL: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/10987558/PB.RAR [dl.dropbox.com] ; http://dl.dropbox.com/u/10987558/PB-BF3-folder.RAR [dl.dropbox.com]
4. TURN ON PnkBstrA and <<WAIT UNTIL IT STARTED>> than start PnkBstrB and also wait until it has started. Do it like in step 1. in TASKMANAGER under SERVICES.
5. Enjoy the game!!!!!!

WORKS 100% i had the problems too until i tryied this. IT SOLVES THE PROBLEM WITH "You are disconnected", "You were kicked by admin", "Server unexpected closed, make sure u have the newest ver. of game client"

The fix for me was a lot simpler: Rather than manually updating etc, it was important to uninstall first.

1) Download the file pbsvc.exe from here: http://www.evenbalance.com/index.php?page=pbsvcfaq.php (it's the small link in the bottom of the first paragraph)
2) Run the file, and choose uninstall first
3) Run the file again, and choose install

Worked for me!
