I'll try to get on but I play for 5 minutes or so and Shitbuster kicks me from the game saying something like "ignoring MD5 tools" or "ignoring queries #9006". I have a proper retail copy and all that but no matter how much I upgrade, patch, auto-patch the thing it just won't let me play for any reasonable amount of time.

Having Google'd there are a lot of people with a similar problem, especially since the 1.4 patch.

Does anyone have any ideas?

that sounds like punkbuster playing up

It did it to me when i joined to test the server last night
but luckily i remember i had killed some punkbuster process (in task manager) to save on some ram (+ a load of other)
and because i dont reboot my pc often punkbuster wasnt running (i just rebooted to fix this)

So my 1st question to you would be
did you install punkbuster when you installed CoD4 (if your not sure, install it again)

If you did install then might be worth googling firewall settings (if you have one running)
see if thats stopping it working.

Keep us updated pls and ta for testing

What I know so far if you are having issues:

1) Check in task manager (preferably when CoD4 is running) to make sure you have two processes running, something to the effect of "PunkBustrA" and "PunkBustrB". If these aren't running then Punkbuster can't connect to the server and will then have a spaz, ending up with you out of the game with "PB init_failure".

2) If all appears to be ok, run "pbsetup" on the DVD manually. Test the service from there. If you have problems, re-install it from there or just do it anyway to make sure.

3) Manually update PB with this app from Even Balance (the makers of PB.) Add the CoD4 profile and click the update button.

4) Open up port: #28962 (UDP) on your router to allow PB traffic. (For help on this: PortForward.com)

5) If you're still stuck, browse to your CoD4 install directory and delete the PB folder. Re-run the PB update app and it will download all config files as new.

6) Disable Windows' (chocolate) Firewall. It can cause more problems than it solves. If you have a firewall'd router then you'll be 99.9% safe. If hackers can bypass your router's firewall, you're pretty much fucked anyway.

7) Restart your PC.


Having done all the above a few times in different combinations, I've played on 2 full maps on a server and not got booted. It could just be the way the wind was blowing when I first tried to play, I don't know. Having said that, there are too many problems for so many people for it to be a coincidence.

Hope the above helps.

Seems to be ok. I think I've cleared whatever it was that was causing a problem.

um,
So I 'purchased' CoD4 for tomorrow night (I should be in...) via Steam, and noticed something rather disturbing:



Anyone else see the problem here?
It would appear that I have a 'subscription' to CoD4...anyone know what exactly that is and how it's different to 'buying' the game?

Meh,
Hit my card for 35, which is only marginally more than buying it through Game, and my time is worth more than the fiver I'd save to get dressed, showered, tootle into Uxbridge and pick it up there

I think they use "subscription" to mean your Steam account.
