Hello,

So I downloaded the game a few hours ago, and now I want to play it, I get kicked after a minute or 5 by PunkBuster. I'm sure there are no hacks on this PC because this is actually the first game I play on this PC (I normally play on Xbox). Does anyone have a solution for not to get kicked by PB?

Thanks,,

Bankstel

Look in the log file, and should tell you why you were kicked. The log file is called pbcl.log

Mine is in "C:\Users\"username"\AppData\Local\PunkBuster\BFP4F\pb"

Stating that EA removed content from my account without my permission, after telling me that they wouldn't, is inappropriate.

I am getting the same problem. Started a week ago and continues to kick me at about the two minute mark. Frustrating to say the least.

By reading those files it isn't a hack, go here, download and install that program called pbsetup, open it, put there all the games (with punkbuster) u have and update punkbuster

Both of you get kicked for "Multiple Direct3D loaded" which indicates that you either are using:
  • A custom TeamSpeak DirectX Overlay (so far, only the built-in overlay works)
  • An outdated version of Fraps
  • Another software that has a "DirectX overlay" function (like e.g. Steam) is running in the background
  • You have "NVIDIA Optimus" enabled (take a look at this: http://battlefield.play4free.com/en/foru...?tid=10536

If you have Norton, reset your firewall.

Read and follow the instructions:
