  • Holy Handshake Punk "B" Fails.

    Anyone know what the remedy is, sometimes it works and sometimes it doesnt. I have updated Chumpbuster and restarted, No Joy. Disabled firewall and no wireless.

        Note that it isn't 100% necessary to delete the Punkbuster folder: handshaking is a common problem that the manual updater overwrites when it's executed.

          not true, because i tried the above and it wasn't until i saw Cougar's post that i knew that even though i don't have much experiences in computers i could complete this task, and it works.

          Door follow Cougar's easy steps, it solves the problem.

            Its a serverside problem, Tempus needs to update the server. Those fixs will only work once, then you'll be having the problem again.

                I was talking to dirtboy and he said it was server side.

                  I 've been having this problem lately and I just open PnkbstrB.exe once before launching PR... seems to work fine.

                      Yesterday i had to do cougar's thing again, but its ok, i think it happened because i accidently deleted it somehow, or i used crap cleanup and it might have deleted it, but nonetheless, it worked again and i was able to join up on the server.

                      Pwn3ge I do think your way works well too, however i am really not that computer literate though i know your steps are easy, i just don't have faith in myself to go that deep into my computer let alone the registry and add and delete things...Unfortunately for me when i was in high school i should have listened to my friend more who was hardcore into computers rather than just surfing the internet and looking for free movies and what not.

                      Does anyone know if Tempus restarted the computer? Will the PB handshake thing or any other pb things or even updated PB have an effect with .8?

                        Pwn is right. You do get it again. This is my 2nd time now.

                        Going through what Cougar said, again, as it fixed it last time.

                        As for a fix for good, I don't know, I'll leave it to the techs to work on.

                        Can't help thinking it's EA/PB though..
