fix for keypacket loss

Post by ExeTick on Fri 21 Sep - 12:58:13

Hello everyone,

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.)

***EDIT***
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 YOU GUYS.


have fun and good luck,
Christy

I rarely get key packet loss, maybe 1-2 times per month.

I wouldn't be surprised if you couldn't find the file in the Windows Registry and then force it to run in High Priority all the time when it executes. Almost every process starts on NORMAL with a few exceptions such as the Task Manager (which is defaulted at HIGH) and there's a reason that they start where they do. And seeing as how the Registry is more or less the frontal lobe of your PC, I'm betting it's in there somewhere.

I suspect Quobbler is releasing, in a not so subtle way, the date of something PR related. Though he may be just continuing Operation Trollhard.
