  • .BAT file to get rid of PB Handshake

    Hi,

    Just follow theses steps in this order and this should work. It did for me; I hope it will for you.

    1) Un-install PB via your control panel.
    2) Find your PB folder in your BF2 directory (mine is C:\Battlefield 2\pb) delete that folder.
    3) Download the last PB version @ PB here.
    4) Install and reboot.

    Here is the tricky part. You will need to creat a batch file (Fond memories of my MSDOS years with X-wing on 5 1.44 diskettes! :row__579:)

    5) Open notepad.
    6) Type in theses few lines (The 2nd line can be edited IE. skip intro, widescreen, etc.)

    Del "pb\pbns_c.dat"
    Start "Project Reality 0.8 Launcher" "mods\pr\pr.exe" +modPath mods/pr +menu 1 +fullscreen 1
    Exit


    7) Save the file as .bat not .txt.
    8) Put this file in your BF2 main directory.
    9) Right click on your PR desktop icon.
    10) Go to properties.
    11) Set the target to the .bat file (Mine is "C:\Battlefield 2\pb.bat").
    12) You’re done! Double click on your icon and you're ready to lock and load (if you want to have the PR logo back just use the "change icon" option in properties).

    This will delete the pbns_c.dat file each time you lauch PR, that way you will bypass the Handshake bug.

    Cheers,
    Nix

            Punkbuster hand shake kicks.

            However, if you knew how to setup up your computer right, you wouldn't be having any problems. =/

              Really? I'm fairly certain that I know how to set up a computer and I am having problems. Can you please explain exactly how to set things up correctly so that I no longer have this issue?

                  Sorry, after rereading my post, it sounded very ass holeish, and I was in a bad mood. All I had to do was make sure no other processes are running, everything is running at the same priority, and then just update PB manually.

                    I'm getting a feeling that some people are talking about PB as a program in itself, when you say update it manually, you mean download the .htm file correct?

                      No, use PBSetup.

                      There's a FAQ on the services here.

                      A link to the download that will uninstall then reinstall the services for you is on the first question's answer.

                        Thank you sir. I'm assuming for PR I just pick BF2, there is no PR specific?

                              Like I said, you need to follow the 12 steps in this specific order or it will not work. If you don't understand theses steps don't attempt the fix or you will have some problems.

                              Cheers,
