BF 2142 Punkbuster problems

i originally had installed BF2142 on my laptop(about a year and a half ago)

i had gotten a virus and i had to whipe the computer. I then stopped playing it for a while.

Now i just recently installed it on my new desktop.. but, whenever i am in a game online about thirty seconds or so into it i get kicked from punkbuster...i am assuming due to the fact that i have one serial code on 2 different computers

is there anyway that i can avoid this and play with out having to buy a new copy of the game???

    There are loads of problems with this..

    First of all you need to have latest punkbuster downloaded

    what operating system are you using as vista needs tweaking with punkbuster

    www.evenbalance.com will help

    you need to download

    software updates and the player script files for client

    I had loads of trouble with this but persevered and it worked
  2. The have a program that does the updates somewhere on their website, just save it to the games pb directory, and run it.
  3. gamerk316 is correct. I had the exact same problem and downloading the manual patcher fixed it. Best I remember you download it and put it in the pukbuster directory. When you run it, you select what punk buster games you have and then it updates it's files for those games.
  4. You might also want to check EA's website. There is a problem with some of the older Battlefield keys. You have to edit one of the registery keys to make it work. I was having this issue and punkbuster keep kicking me and it was a blank screen. It was due to the key problem. I got the game the day it came out so I have had mine for awhile.
  5. Ah, thanks so much :D

    You guys were right...i had to delete the old pb file and download that updater.

    thanks!!
  6. Can u take it step by step cuz i have the same problem but im not a big computer guy
