Punkbuster kicking me from games? need a fix

#1BlackheathPosted 3/3/2010 7:41:25 AM

anyone found a fix for this yet? I can't get into a single game without getting init Punkbuster thing. I HAVE UPDATED MY GAME. I HAVE RESTARTED MY COMPUTER. these solutions don't work. What the hell is the point of punkbuster it seems like this game would be so much better off without it. Anyone help at all would be appreciated.

This worked for me:

Download this version of punkbuster here:
http://www.evenbalance.com/index.php?page=pbsetup.php

INstall it, then add the Battlefield Bad Company 2 folder to it, then click the check for updates button, it will have an update for you, after it updates which takes 30 seconds maybe, you can play.

Ahh, hopefully the connection errors they are talking about are PunkBuster related. Because I hear all sorts of stories of people continuing to have problems with punkbuster today with other games such as MW.

To fix the punkbuster thing just go to www.evenbalance.com and download the manual updater. Use this and point to your Bad Company 2 directory and have it update Punkbuster.

did you change your FoV? I kept getting kicked when I raised it to 75, put back to 55 and played fine for 3 hours.
