TESTED SOLUTION FOR APB WITH STEAM (trying to update Punkbuster db...)

1:) Uninstall Punkbuster
2.) Restart PC
3.) Start APB Launcher (then its displayed "Installing Punkbuster")... wait until it is finished
4.) Download latest pbsetup from Eventbalance
5.) Install pbsetup
6.) Add APB:Reloaded (Client Punkbuster Version is showing, Server Version not found)
7.) Update APB:reloaded Punktbuster and wait until it is finished

Close all Windows

Start APB Launcher and play the Game

Info: This Solution was successfully tested with 3 PCs (all on Win7 64bit), the Game Crashes still occur but the Punkbuster Errors are gone.

Hope this solution helps others too. If yes honk in Respect if you see us on the Streets of SanParo!! (NitroCircus Clan)

PROBLEM: PunkBuster kicked player 'xxxx.' (for 0 minutes) ... RESTRICTION: Service Communication Failure: PnkBstrBprogram

MY SOLUTION: win xp main certyficats actualisation fix the problem, an old certyfikats were blocking pb acces to log files, so pb couldn't modyfy his files. (so solution is: download actual Rutsupdprogram from microsoft site and instal it)

I was able to play for about 5 hrs then randomly the game kicked me and was saying the pb error. Now i cant play the game 5 mins without pb messing up and kicking me. I reinstalled pb, manual installed pb, reinstalled the game and everything. Still fails to allow me to play the game.

This is getting really annoying and starting to piss me off. Im about to just uninstall this crap. Switch PB for VAC please!

Posted in another forum:
This is how I see a VAC vs PB showdown:

1. Does it detect known cheats ?
VAC: Yes ... PB: Yes

2. Does it detect modern/new cheats ?
VAC: Yes ... PB: No

3. Does it detect ring-0 hacks ?
VAC: Some ... PB: No

4. Does it detect material wallhacks ?
VAC: No ... PB: No

5. Does it require manual updates from time-to-time ?
VAC: No, it's fully automatic ... PB: Yes, after each game install

6. Does it consume my computer's resources even if I'm not in a game ?
VAC: No ... PB: Yes, since it installs a server agent

7. Does it randomly kick for running totally legit programs while playing a game ?
VAC: No ... PB: Yes

8. Is the system biased and open to abuse from it's admins ?
VAC: No, it's fully automatic ... PB: Yes, it takes into account user reports

9. Is it dependent on dedicated servers to run properly ?
VAC: Yes ... PB: Yes

10. Is it seen in a good light by current developers ?
VAC: Yes ... PB: No

Found another way of fixing this. PB gave me incorrect information also of what to fix. This is what I did:
1. I uninstalled the game and PB
2. Turn off and completely close your Anti-Virus program. (I mean completely closed)
3. Reinstall the game
4. Go to the Binaries folder and delete the pb folder.
5. Download: http://www.evenbalan...page=dl-apb.php (And add the game and update)
6. Restart computer
7. On restart turn off Anti-virus.
8. start game.

My problem : PunkBuster

You're obviously running a program or driver that PunkBuster is not happy about. You can contact them directly via http://evenbalance.c...support-apb.php

Note that this could be about things such as:

  • Certain macro programs
  • Viruses
  • Spyware
  • Hack programs (even for other games)
  • Other bad stuff on your computer

So, you may try closing all processes that you don't need while playing the game.

Is this issue still being looked into? I've been getting the whole "kicked for 0 minutes for losing packet 9003" for months now. Its not even something I can pin down since it happens so randomly. I've long since uninstalled punkbuster and reinstalled from the link provided and still get this problem.

I've tried almost all the solutions listed on this thread. Reinstalling APB, uninstalling Punkbuster and reinstalling, updating Punkbuster with their tool on Evenbalance, etc. I still can't join a district.. I don't know what's wrong? :Sadface:


Posted Image

I think I've pinpointed the problem ;o
When I tried to start APB, it took a couple minutes to "Install Punkbuster" (even though I installed it with Evenbalance ><); then I got this error message. Please help. :badcomputer:

Hello Folks - I've merged the two threads so everyone can see the two troubleshooting solutions we have at hand:

1.) Go into your APB Reloaded game folder. Go to "Binaries" folder. Find "pbsvc_apb" and then "Install/Re-Install PunkBuster Service" (See image below)

Posted Image

2.) Go to Control Panel. Uninstall PB. Relaunch APB game client. This will reinstall the latest version of PB.

We are working with EvenBalance to get to the root of the issue and will keep you all posted as soon as we have further news from them.

Thank you for your patience.

Is there a reason why the punkbuster rolls back to an older version whenever I use the patcher? I have a shortcut for the game to launch directly, but I still need to use the patcher whenever the game has some sorta update/hotfix. So every time the game has an update or if I stupidly use the patcher by accident I have to reapply the new version of punkbuster. I've gone to through their support system about my specific error code and they gave me the run around twice.

The root of the issue is really quite simple... PunkBuster is just useless. <_<

"Punkbuster kicked player VickyFox (for 0 minutes)... RESTRICTION: Service Communication Failure: PnkBstrB(DOT)exe initialization failed"

I was able to play just fine a hour ago before signing off and having dinner now PB is on strike it seems... :eyebrow:


gah cant login all day because login severs are down and now pb acts up, same error as him...is there a fix? what the effing fudge mang >>

UPDATE: 6/16/2014

I found a fix: here we go

http://battlelog.bat...54348321410340/

The problem occurs because the pbap(DOT)exe is not running.

Solution:
For 64 bit systems go to C:\windows\syswow64 then look for pbbprogram (PnkBstrB(DOT)exe and PnkBstrA(DOT)exe)
For 32 bit systems go to C:\windows\System32 then look for pbbprogram (PnkBstrB(DOT)exe and PnkBstrA(DOT)exe)

-Run it as admin
-And then press open again
-Then you will get a short cmd screen
-Then you know its running
-Then go to Services and make PnkBstrB(DOT)exe and PnkBstrA(DOT)exe and run Automatic and Start the service.
-Apply the changes.

---
If you are running win7 you will probably not find PnkBstrB(DOT)exe on the Services list. To fix that the folowing:
1. go back to were the PnkBstrB(DOT)exe file is localed (syswow64)
2. Right click it and select properties
3. Go to the compatibility tab
4. at the bottom, click change for all user acounts, apply
5. check the box that says execute as admin (should right on top of the other thing, apply, ok.
6.Go back to services.msc and PnkBstrB(DOT)exe should now be visible.


Not sure if this fix is at all permanent but it worked for me, for now. Not sure if you have to keep rerrunning PnkBstrB(DOT)exe every time you turn your pc on. Hope this helps people. See you inside Apb :)

---
Yes another Update:
After CLosing the client PnkBstrB(DOT)exe went back into hiding.
So while having Services.msc open I did this.

1.) Go into your APB Reloaded game folder. Go to "Binaries" folder. Find "pbsvc_apb" and then "Install/Re-Install PunkBuster Service"(from a few post above me.)
That made PnkBstrB(DOT)exe visible again and I could again restart it.

>This is a dumb fix if I have to do it eveyry time I play but meh, beats not playing anytime.

Update:
Gave up and made ticket with evebalance will update as soon as they reply.

---
Found yet another ninja fix that has to be done every time.
Have pbsvc_apb(dot)exe and Services.msc open and run apb.
When you get to district select, run the installer all the way until you can click finish.
At that point look for pnkbstrB(dot)exe on the services window and run it, done.

Last update because abp support and evenbalance are just giving me solutions that I already tried/do not work.

My temp fix still works like a sharm.

This is for unlucky users like me that cant fix the failure to communicate kick problem from PnkBstrB(dot)exe:

I need to do this every time I run the client.

1.Run client
2.log on and get to district select. (if you stay on character select the error pops up)
3.alt tab and run the repair/installer pbsvc(dot)exe. intall pb, run test.
5. Restart PnkBstrB(dot)exe on Services.msc

That seems to fix it but I cant go back to character select screen or log off without haveing to restart the client and doing the above steps again.

For better results have both the instaler and service.msc running before you run the client. Its a very small window before the kick happens.

No matter what I do I can't get PnkBstrB to show up in services.

So I guess I'm limited to minute long stints in social now....

Have you had any luck dealing with support? I'd try talking to them myself but I'd just end up getting super pissy.

found the fix in this webside finaly fixed my problem.

http://arch1tect.wor...-fix-windows-7/

Not at all related to the subject matter of this blog, but us cutting edge nerds have to stick together right.

Currently Punkbuster (the anti-cheat software built into many multiplayer games) has major compatibility issues with Windows 7. Various fixes have been discovered for x32 versions of the Beta OS, but none (until now) for x64. Punkbuster themselves have refused to support Windows 7 until RTM, so forgive the "hackiness" of the fix, but it works.

The Fix

In both C:\Windows\SYSWOW64 and C:\Windows\System32

Open PnkBstrAprogram and PnkBstrBprogram's properties and enable Vista Compatibility Mode, as well as "Run as administrator". Save.

Right click on the desktop and create a new text file, then copy paste the following:

:start

sc config PnkBstrA type= own type= interact

sc config PnkBstrB type= own type= interact

timeout 60

goto start

Save the text file as punkbuster.bat and run it (as an administrator) before joining a server.

Problem "resolved".

---




Now the bat file part did notthing for me but the first part about making PnkA and PnkB run always as admin and on Windows VIsta Service Pack 2 fixed my problem after a reboot.

Forgot to post, but I did get mine working. I had to manually delete the PnkBstrB and then reinstall, as the posted solutions weren't working for some reason.

I run Win8, so maybe a problem with that?

SNIP FOR GREAT JUSTICE


Dude, for the last year I have been having problems with packet loss kicks to the point where I was literally unable to play in the evenings when everyone was on... Was having the problems last night, tried your solution and holy hell it actually worked. I was getting kicked after 5 minutes, applied your solution and managed to play APB until I was done for the night, no kicks or hitches at all.

Hopefully I'm not jinxing it by typing this, but thank you so much :D


EDIT: Spoke too soon and jinxed it. Guess I'll try and play APB again tomorrow or something :\

I'm not the creator of this post, just found it and decided hey, maybe this should go here.

Still looking for a permanent fix to this bug >>


- Delete Punkbuster contents from both folders ( \APB Reloaded\Binaries\pb and \%USER%\AppData\Local\PunkBuster\APB\pb)

- Go to C:\windows\system32 (and syswow64 if 64-bit) and delete PnkBstrXprogram (both)

- Run PBSVCprogram as admin, uninstall then install (even tho u deleted)

- Go to \APB Reloaded\TPI\Punkbuster, run PunkBuster_APBInstallerprogram as an admin

- Run APB Launcher as admin, PB will patch

- Run PBSetupprogram as admin, Add APB (If you havent) and update

- Copy pb contents from \APB Reloaded\Binaries\pb to %USER%\AppData\Local\PunkBuster\APB\pb

- Play

I just wanna hop in here real quick and say that the solution posted by BuggedOut worked like a charm for me. The explanation is a bit badly described at times, but anyone with half a brain shouldn't have a problem working it out.

Good job, mate!

Edit: Tomshsh, if you go HERE, you will find the download-link for PBSetup. It's a small program, the official Punkbuster installer/updater. Just select "For all Windows Games". Don't worry it's not a virus or animal pr0n or anything. :)

Edit 2: Here's the very same guide (I take no credit, it was BuggedOne who came up with this), rewritten for dummies (like myself):


1. DELETE all files and folders you find in "\APB Reloaded\Binaries\pb" AND "\%USER%\AppData\Local\PunkBuster\APB\pb".

2. Go to "C:\Windows\System32" (or \Syswow64 if you have a 64bit OS) and delete the two files PnkBstrA and PnkBstrB.

3. In the same folder, find PBSVC (with a punkbuster-icon), run it AS ADMINISTRATOR. Choose Uninstall. When it's done, close the program.

4. Start the same file again - AS ADMINISTRATOR - and choose Install. When it's done, close the program.

5. Go to "\APB Reloaded\TPI\Punkbuster" and run PunkBuster_APBInstaller AS ADMINISTRATOR. Notice that nothing visible actually happens on your screen. It's supposed to be like that.

6. Go to "\APB Reloaded\Launcher" and run APBLauncher AS ADMINISTRATOR. You will notice a small update, that's punkbuster being reinstalled/updated. When it's done, turn off the launcher. In other words, you do not need to start up the actual game at this point.

7. Run PBSetup AS ADMINISTRATOR (download from evenbalance.com), press Add a game and select APB Reloaded. While APB Reloaded is marked in the list, hit Update. When it's done, close the program.

8. Copy EVERYTHING you find in "\APB Reloaded\Binaries\pb" over to "%USER%\AppData\Local\PunkBuster\APB\pb", overwrite all necessary files when prompted to.

9. Congratulations! You have now gotten a good taste of true PC-gaming frustration. Fire up the game and hope to your preferred deity that your problem has been solved.


oh yeah remember to reboot your pc after all that. Also it helps if every time you want to run apb is from a fresh boot. Just food for thought.

I have created a simple troubleshoot guide that requires MUCH less downloading than a full un-install/re-install:

Left APB due to unplayable circumstances caused by NA merge.

by my experience with punkbuster, it could be anything even ur graphic card driver... 

but, let´s try something easy.

Q: do u use xneat or programmes like that?

A: Yes 

Solution: Close APB. End Xneat (or whatever u use) and close it. Now go to your APB PB folder, found in binaries (programmes/Steam/Steam Apps/Common/APB Reloaded/Binaries/PB) if used via steam. without u shoul find it in programmes/gamersfirst i guess. However, delete everything in the pb folder and restart your computer. After that, use "pbsetup.exe" found in the internet. Update Punkbuster for APB, then repair the game. You SHOULD be fine now. This steps have to be done EVERY time you use xneat or simular stuff... (might even be teamviewer).

This is the only problem i had with Punkbuster so far, but it may help with other problems, too. You DON´T have to reinstall APB this way!

Regards,

J.B.

Got no idea what xneat is. You can see the running programs there.

 

Deleting everything that had to do with punkbuster, checking files with steam fixed it. 

 

However on the other computer running the game, it seems to return every day. Goes away after doing the reinstall, but it's horribly annoying. Thought it could be a virus, but after checking with three scanners, and malwarebytes, it's clean.
