Kicked by PunkBuster; RESTRICTION: Service Communication

Thoppa-Thoppa- Posts: 5Player
I know a lot of people have had this problem, but it has never happened to me before. If anybody knows a fix please help a brother out. In my situation this only occurs if I am attempting to join a privately operated server. Any private server I attempt to join it will give me that error, official servers I have no issue.

    Download and run this file to test/(re)install Punkbuster.
    Theory and reality are not that different. In theory.

    Thanks Levente! That fixed whatever issue I was having. Punkbuster was installed, I guess that fixed the issue though. Appreciate the help. =)

    Just came back after many years away and am having this same issue.
    Have done as advised by Dct.F|Levente above, but problem persists.

    Any ideas how to further trouble-shoot / fix this?

    All The Best

    If your running on windows 10 you need to download and install PnkBstrA and PnkBstrB manually from evenbalance https://www.evenbalance.com/ for some reason the game is not updating PnkBstrA on windows 10

    I did do that, but still no joy; once I had manually added both the 32bit and 64bit AAPG clients to the PB application it worked though.

    Many thanks.

    That's probably a user error if that happens, installed just fine on all my windows 10 systems.

    The biggest issue that people are runing in to, they will run a outdated version of PunkBuster when they just installed the game for the first time with out ever having PB on their system. Dev's still didn't update the latest PB files into their installation files.

    Then you just have random PnkStrA crashes, or failures to start up on PC startup process. Or PnkStrB doesn't want to launch or re-launch. These two are the main source of players problems.
