Are you getting this error when playing Battlefield 3 servers on PC?
PunkBuster kicked player Lostagent2. This PB Server Requred (A1386 C2.325) – Error loading pbcl
Annoying isn’t it? It seems to occur a few minutes into the game. It’s caused by an out of date Punkbuster client on the computer. Punkbuster is anti-cheating software bundled with games.
I was able to resolve this by following this article. I’ve summarised it below in case for some reason it gets removed.
- Download and install the PBSVC program from http://www.evenbalance.com/downloads/pbsvc/pbsvc.exe
- Run the program to remove punkbuster and clean it. It will remove any old version that might be problematic.
- Now download the latest version and run PBSetup.exe from http://evenbalance.com/index.php?page=pbsetup.php
- Once installed and running, click Add a Game, select Battlefield 3 from the list.
- Now click Check for Updates until all updates have been applied. There may be a few updates to install.
Now you can restart BF3 and get pawning!
Worked beautifully for me.
