Hey everyone, couldn't find a search button so don't know if this has already been discussed.
Pretty much every 2 out of 3 servers i try to connect to, PB kicks me almost instantly saying that "this server doesn't allow an empty CD key"
Now when i go to the console and type /pb_myguid it just says Guide=? and when i go /pb_cdkeyreg it just does nothing and hangs.
I know that it isn't a connection issue as i managed to play a full-length match on one server.
I've tried reinstalling more than twice from different installation files, i've definetly installed the patches correctly, and i've scoured the internet looking for answers but it seems everyone else except me has had this problem sorted in one way or another. and i've tried all of those methods.
I apologise, i forgot to address the issue of updating PB. I initially refrained from updating PB through pbsetup.exe as after i completed the update, ET would start up, but remain on a gray screen and then show a "ET.exe needs to close" window and it just exits. I forgot all about this problem.
So yeah. I'm pretty sure the CD key won't be an issue if i manage to get ET to start up after the PB update. I just can't get it to work after the update, is all.
