PB Client Authentication Failure

Recommended Posts

PB continues to prove it's uselessness in pc gaming. Last night, I was playing ET just fine and dandy. But tonight and earlier today I was getting kicked for "general PB client Authentication Failure." Five minutes ago I was kicked for that reason and when I reconnected, I got another kick for "losing key packets 9003."


I have Windows Vista, but I run ET in Windows XP compatibility mode and as an administrator. I've also updated pb earlier today but it still gives me this kick.


EDIT: I just tried reinstalling pb and it didn't do anything. Good job punkbuster... you fail as usual.

Well sorry to hear that, happens too many times. Hopefully PB will fix it soon... You´re that gfred... guy, right?

Did you try to DELETE pbsetup.exe and co? And do you run other programs with ET? If yes try closing them.

Is ET+PB enabled on firewall if you have any?

What CPU do you have? If multicore then would be worth to try open task manager- click on ET and set affinity to CPU cores which isnt 0.

Also could set values in console

\com_hunkmegs 128 or higher depending on RAM

\pb_sleep 500

Thats pretty much all solutions popped into my mind.

Hope to see ya soon back and fragging ;)




hmm just remembered- make screenshot of PB actions on console when you are connecting till kicked. those blue lines u know;)

might help when you delete old unnecessary and packs from other server, helped me once. But you might wanna SAVE ETKEY before deleteing anything(ETKEY=ur LVL+XP)


PS. This topic would fit more under SUPPORT?
