    Exclamation PunkBuster Patch

    Yeah, it's been installed. This means no more script kiddies! But, there are still ways to bypass things. So far, I do not like PunkBuster. I was in the lobby, and I was no longer able to type messages. Instead, it appeared as if I had typed "i am not a man." I assure you, I did not type that... PunkBuster also kicked me out for not sending packets, although I was typing something at that very moment, and in a room waiting for the game to start. Why not nProtect?

    Nah.
    Insanity I never knew I played games with you (meaning u where from ONRPG)
    Well when I played I rarely had hackers and cheaters, and for the amount of people this is screwing up I really don't think it was worth it. (just go to there forums)

    I personally have had pretty much 0 problems after the implementation of PunkBuster. I have a IP Blocking program (PeerGuardian), Anti-Virus and Trillian running while I play, and I have yet to encounter a single problem, other then the maps taking a tad longer to load but I figure that's the fault of my crappy PC having to work a little harder.

    These "people" are having problems because of these things:

    1. They insisted on modifying game files (skins, etc) and kept them on after the PB was put on. Now they are boggled as to why it won't function correctly.

    2. They don't have their internets/routers/firewalls configured properly, and it's causing some problems with PB.

    3. They just put it in, there's bound to be problems.

    Wow you are lucky. I just have trillian, and Anti-Virus running and it kills me every time. Either saying I am not the admin of this comp or that I am hacking. Yet I have not even touched the folders lol.

    It actually says you've been kicked for hacking? Maybe a fresh install would really help you. Try redownloading and reinstalling if you can. Even if you "not even touched the folders", it couldn't hurt.

    As for the O/S Privilages problem, I dunno. I used to have that problem on AA (not on Warrock though) and it just kind of stopped one of the times. Maybe it's cause I reinstalled it? Like I said, couldn't hurt.
