  • server connection problems

    I just built a new computer that should definately handle the pr mod much better than my old one along with a sennheiser headset which some people suggested I get since I did not have a headset. But there is a problem. I installed BF2 again and decided to try and play a few rounds online before I install the pr mod. But every time I try to connect to a server I get an error message from punkbuster that says service communication failure: PnKBstrA.exe. The map will load but I can not get past kit selection without being kicked out of the server with that message coming up. The game plays just fine in single player though but I do not think that really matters here. So what could be the problem and how can I fix it because I know that if it is doing it on vanilla that it will do it in pr.

    Sounds like you need to either manually update or reinstall PunkBuster as the PnkbstrA exe isn't starting correctly. Are you comfortable doing that?

      Sure I am comfortable with that. But I do not know how to update it or reinstall it.

        go to http://evenbalance.com/index.php?page=dl-bf2.php

        Download and install pbsetup.exe

        Follow the instructions. Very easy.
