Helo fellow soldiers. Ive had some troubles playing this game. I had to clean up my SSD drive and redownloaded everything to my main drive. And thats when the problems started happening. I did run a PB setup and did run the pbsvc. https://ibb.co/6YNgM59 as you can see this is the path where ive installed PB and AAPG : https://ibb.co/M1s4xX2 Dezepc>Data(E)>steam>steamapps>common>Americas Army. In that main folder ive installed PB.
I would appreciate any help.

Kind regards,
Thanathos

    the pb folder in my branch is not present (I think you have to cancel). I only have the AAPG folder. The pbsvc_pg application is located in: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\America's Army\AAPG\Binaries , you just have to run this file to play
  • Hi i just ran the program from the folder you mentioned and tried playing the game. Just recieved another kick for the same reason

    IIRC, thats not the kick reason, just the PB version

    I guess thats the startup of the two pb services i guess, check that they run while the game is going.
    (i think punkbusterA is always running, and B is running when a BP game is active)

    That's correct, PnkBstA is running when the system is launched,
    PnkBstB launches when the game is booted up and you see the login screen.

    Most likely will not do anything, PB Init is mostly caused (this combined with his first issue) running a out-dated version of PunkBuster. My geuss he has a fresh install of the game.

    I've requested many times that the Devs update their installation files on Steam with the latest PunkBuster, this will save a lot of people that are not well known with software the headache it gives.

    Please Download the updater:
    http://evenbalance.com/pbsetup.php

    After the update is done, open task manager and make sure that PnkBstB.exe is not running. If it is, left click on it and hold Ctrl-Del. This will force a shutdown on it. Then launch the game and connect a server to see if you still have any pb kicks.

    EDIT:

    Also refrain from doing manual updates to the PB folders on your system, this can cause issues blocking you from playing the game normally. The PB folder in the game is where (after running the latest version) PunkBuster will put their auto updates in. It's also not the main folder where PB runs.

    Agreed.

    I have lost count of the number of players I see struggling to get this sorted.

    And if you think about it, it is counter productive on so many levels.

    Back on AA 1.x and 2.x I was fortunate enough to be invited to a couple of the Player / AAGP /Dev consultative meeting on VOIP.

    One thing that was constantly stressed was the need for the Official Servers to be fair, and now we have the Official Server not even running PB because it is, seemingly, too hard to make sure the game is kept up to date with PB updates.

    If the reason PB is disabled is so New Players don't have too much hassle getting into the game then how much hassle do you think they have getting slaughtered by guys using cheats because the Official Servers are a safe-haven for cheaters because they don't have PB.

    This is jut stupid.

    The game installer MUST be installing the most up-to-date version of PB, and Official Servers need to be running PB.

    All The Best
