I had lots of trouble with punkbuster losing key packet 9003 and 9005 error
and since no one out there was able to help me i went searching and searching
on my pc and on tons of forums.
Well i am not that great with pc's actualy my self but after a day of struggling i fixed this error for me.
I did the following:
There is a PnkbstrA . exe (is active all time)
and there is a PnkbstrB. exe (becomes active once u go in a game it requires.)
i found out that those 2 need to communicate in order to stay in game.
But for me and lots of oders i supose the B . exe keeps turning off and on
eventualy turning off fully getting u the missing key packets error
I found out from reading the pnkbstrB logfile in system 32 that it gets an critical error
about having LOW PRIORITY
What you have to do is following:
*LAUNCH apb and
*once ur on the main login screen tab out to desktop
* open task manager (ctrl +alt+del)
*go to services search for PnkbstrA . exe and PnkbstrB. exe make sure it says they are both RUNNING
IF 1 or both aint running RIGHT CLICK them and click start service
*next u go to processes in ur taskbar menu
*search the list for pnkbstrA. exe and pnkbstrB . exe
*now right click on PnkbstrA . exe and go to SET PRIORITY put this on HIGH
do the same to the pnkbstrB . exe and close task manager
( u can check if it worked by opening taskmanager again going processes and checking if the priority of the file is stile on high.)
I FOUND THAT when ever ur game closes or ur pc restarts
the priority of PnkbstrB. exe gets reset to normal
so u manualy have to put it back to high again TY.
*NOW CLOSE APB
*NEXT TIME U LAUNCH APB MAKE SURE U LAUNCH IT AS ADMINISTRATOR
for me this worked the log file of PnkbstrB . exe doesnt go crazy any more and i can run the game without crashes.
Sorry if this is wrong section.. or if my english is not the best..
Also like i said i totaly have not much idea of pc's i just found this by luck and from talking with others.
I HOPE THIS CAN HELP 1 OF YOU GUYS.
have fun and good luck,
