Since the new punkbuster release 1.279 many of you have had problems connecting to several servers. The cause of this is an outdated PBNS.DAT which comes from the previous version and is not automatically updated, because one is now less than ever possible to connect to that server. Not until you have been connected the actual Punk Buster software is loaded if there is a difference between client and server. If you connect to servers which are running the last PB Update and the client is running an old version, the PBNS.DAT avoids an GUID authentification (awaiting gamestate) because of operating with outdated data for the masterserver. (new: 192.246.40.62 - pbguidauth.idsoftware.com)

Solution

* 1. download pbsetup.exe from www.evenbalance.com/index.php?page=pbsetup.php
* 2. delete or rename the old pb-directory and create a new one in which you copy the downloaded file.
* 3. start pbsetup.exe, follow the instructions and download a completely new pb-software.
* 4. connect to an updated server, like this one, and you will receive a new PBNS.DAT from that server.
* 5. done!

    hi guys, i´m having a problem with pb and i dont know if its the same reported here.
    i run et on win vista and im having alwais the same problem , i instal et i try to conect to a PB server and im kickd for unknow reason. a friend told me that every ime im kicked its shows something like this on the reason for kick "server abnprmality" and seams to be the reason in all pb servers i try to connect.

    the other issue is that when i try to play for the first time after the istalation and i exit the game and try to run et.exe again , it crash´s on the intrudution images and the only way out is ctrl+alt+del.

    i already tyed to run the et.exe as an full admin and as a win xp compatible program and the problem remains.

    Pbsetup.exe will also create a new pb folder if it does not exist. It is a good program, when I reinstall ET I always install pb this way.
