Default 0.8 - Corrupted Packet Flow

What the title says... I join a server, and 30 seconds later it kicks me for corrupted packet flow. Never happened before 0.8. Tried reinstalling punkbuster, to no avail. anyone else have this problem? it's pissing me off because i just waited 2 hours to download it, to find out i can't even play it.

maybe its your firewall and anti virus program
turn them off to see if those might be the cause

Got a PROBLEM? Check this: PR:BF2 Installation Guide

Got a common QUESTION? check here first: PR:BF2 FAQ, MUMBLE FAQ

"Hello, IT! ... Yes, have you tried turning it on and off again?"

I have many PB problems since 0.8 which i didn't had with 0.7 or vBF2.

1. PnkBstrB.exe handshaking

Fixed by the guide on this forum

2. Losing key packets

Also fixed with the PB guide.

3. Corrupted Packet Flow

Can't join any server at all because of this....

When asking for help,
please remember to post your:
systems specks,
network setup
And a brief history before and after problem started.

Before you go online to join a server
you should:

1. Download pbsvc
2. Start pbsvc installer, you should see options for install, uninstall, test.
3. Run the Uninstaller
4. Restart your computer.
5. reinstall punk buster files with pbsvc( if your using Vista DO NOT set compatibility to XP, run as admin ok)
6. After pcsvc installs, click the "test" option to check the punk buster install you just did.
5. Make sure it comes back "all green"
6.Download pbsetup(pbsvc DOES NOT install pbsetup.)
7.Create a pbsvc installer shortcut AND pbsetup program shortcut on your desktop.
8.Run pbsetup (from the shortcut on your desktop) add BF2 to the games list, then hit update."

(pbsvc installs the punk buster 'engines' or applications.
PBsetup installs the files/gas the 'engines run)

It is recommended that you restart your system after you install/uninstall programs
to ensure all installed components, files and registry entries are correctly installed or removed.
Many have posted just reinstalling with pbsvc
And updating pb with pbsetup,
Didn't fix their CTD ,"handshaking failed" or "Losing Key Packets" pb issues
In till they restarted before reinstalling

This is likely more of a Vista issue
because Vista was released after bf2
so pb is playing catch up with Vista.
That is why you're asked to first uninstall pb
The pb bf2 installs is an older version than doesn't work
well with Vista. Now It may be the older version works just fine with XP I don't know.
I do know I haven't read on PBs web sitexp users don't need to upgrade.
But when you think about it It seams likely PB would want to develop one version that works for both.
The key here Is use pbsvc if your having problems.

Make sure your firewall has permission for:

(search for your location)

or (not 100% sure but for 32 bit O/S I think it's)C:\WINDOWS\SYSWOW32\PNKBSTRA.EXE
"C:\Users\"your user name here"\AppData\Roaming\PnkBstrB.exe"

I had a few 'handshking and 'Corrupted Packet Flow' errors after installing v8.

Running pbsvc worked for me

"There's nothin' like a nice piece of hickory"

I play on TeamPlayersGaming where it's all about the teamwork.

seen this a few times from our members, seems to be caused by a windows update or other program waiting to be installed/updated.

everytime they reboot machine and works fine
