I changed the icon of the desktop shortcut to suit my game icon and have never had any issues and the services only run when my game runs wow..Punk Buster is designed to keep itself up to date using our proprietary auto-update system.Please use the registration form, to register here or read more information about the registration process. This is an announcement to all America's Army 3 Players...The Server Administrators for America's Army 3.x are looking to turn Punkbuster on for the servers to get the protection and control they need for the servers to keep the gameplay the way it is suppose to be.Normally Punk Buster keeps itself updated while you play your favorite game.If, however, you would like to manually update your Punk Buster installations, please download our PBsetup utility and follow the instructions.After I join a game I am immediately kicked and get this warning. pbsetup is the easiest way i have found client side for any pb game updates . I had noticed pnkbstr a and b were both running after bf2 had closed and after startup so I had disabled it.I have tried manually updating punkbuster and making sure my firewall allows it. It really needs to run on startup now and while bf2 isnt even running? Starting with PB Client version 1.700, the new components are required.
rem set punkbuster services to auto sc config Pnk Bstr A binpath= "c:\windows\system32\Pnk Bstr A.exe" start= "auto" sc config Pnk Bstr B binpath= "c:\windows\system32\Pnk Bstr B.exe" start= "auto" rem start the punkbuster services sc start Pnk Bstr A sc start Pnk Bstr B rem start America's Army start /wait "" "C:\Program Files\America's Army\System\Army Ops.exe" rem after AA closes stop punkbuster services sc stop Pnk Bstr A sc stop Pnk Bstr B rem reset status of punkbuster services to disabled sc config Pnk Bstr A binpath= "c:\windows\system32\Pnk Bstr A.exe" start= "disabled" sc config Pnk Bstr B binpath= "c:\windows\system32\Pnk Bstr B.exe" start= "disabled" I put the batch file ( mine is named ) in my root folder and have a shortcut on my desktop..
For a complete description of the pbucon feature, please see our Punk Buster UDP Console manual.
The pbucon utility can be downloaded below: Starting in January of 2004, Punk Buster Server Admins have the option of using the new PB MD5Tool facility to check the digital signatures of files and/or portions of files in each player's game directory and child sub-directories during game play.
I ran pbsvc.exe, uninstalled my old punkbuster and setup the new one and it is still giving me the same error edit: also neither pnkbstr or pnkbstr seem to be running Edited by maninthespoon, Oct 3, 2007 - PM. If thats true then I guess I will have to quit bf2 because that is too intrusive, there is no need for it to be running constantly. Uninstalling and/or disabling the new components will cause Punk Buster to stop working correctly and will cause frequent kicking from Punk Buster enabled servers.
I found a small batch file that I use that sits on my desktop that starts the services up prior to me starting the game and turns them off once I am finished playing.
