So...that bf3 multiplayer....

#1razidPosted 9/5/2013 5:33:52 AM
I've been trying to get battlefield 3 multiplayer to work for the past week (since I got it in the humble bundle deal) and I can't get it to. First it was punkbuster errors now it can never find a match or join a match. The farthest I've gone is it starts up bf3 then closes and says can't join server. Anyone know what's up?

have you tried just reinstallling it? I'm assuming not, cuz it's a huge-ish download and all.

Are you running a script blocker? Is your punkbuster updated to the latest? is your firewall set up properly?

Yeah I don't want to try reinstalling, took me 3 evenings to install that thing. I'll try reinstalling punkbuster and see if that works. I don't know about the firewall, I mean I can play other games online. Is there anything in particular I should check regarding the firewall?

Uninstall punkbuster. Go to punkbuster's site and download it from there. Install it, etc. Try then.

This is what happens when you don't make an ingame server browser.

That's the least of that game`s problems. In fact I'd go so far as to say that not having an in game server browser is the BEST part of the game.

Honestly, punkbuster is always my issue. I always have to uninstall it, redownload it, uninstall it, update it, etc. For both BFBC2 and BF3.
