Lower your resolution or quality settings OR buy new card. First of all, update your graphics drivers as i mentioned earlier.

Right mouse click “pbsetup.exe” and select Run as administrator and follow the instructions. My connection is behind NAT and my computer doesn’t get own public IP address, and for some reason NAT blocks some of the traffic that Battlefield 4 server tries to send to my computer.

Your game runs couple of minutes or less and then it shuts down and this text comes to webpage. There has been problems with Punkbuster and PB hasn’t installed at all, OR it doesn’t add Battlefield 4 automatically to PB’s game list, OR PB couldn’t download required files for Battlefield 4. So here are the ports that Battlefield 4 is using on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.

If you are playing on PC, please enable the following online ports on your connection: TCP: 80, 443, 9988, 20000-20100, 22990, 17502, 42127 UDP: 3659, 14000-14016, 22990-23006, 25200-25300 If you are playing on PS3, please enable the following online ports on your connection: TCP: 80, 443, 9988, 10000-10100, 17502, 42127 UDP: 3659, 14000-14016 If you are playing on Xbox 360, please enable the following online ports on your connection: TCP: 53, 88, 3074 UDP: 53, 88, 3074 If you don’t know how to do port forwarding’s, i can only say one thing. list’s a lot of routers and tutorials how to do forwarding’s.

Extract and install this application and start it by right clicking it and select Run As Administrator. Add TCP listen on port 3659 to your local ip and port 80. Check that both forwarding’s are in “Running: Yes” -state. You will lose your LAN, but this is one way to check if your router is causing your disconnects.

This particular error message has previously appeared in Battlefield 3 (about 3 months ago), were Punkbuster essentially conflicted with Battlefield 3, causing “false alarms” to show up on the server, which essentially means that the server will automatically kick you out, if you’re lucky you could probably get a 10 minute game before being kicked off the server.Anyway rant is over, I’ll maybe fire-up another Spaghetti Western instead.But while you wait, here are some awesome BF3 frags UPDATE – 25/1/2012 – GMT: Issue is still going on, Battlelog forum is chuck full of teenage kids swearing their heads-off, lovely. Today we are hearing reports of PC gamers being inadvertently kicked out of games of Battlefield 3 by Punk Buster, the good news is that the guys at EA DICE have been looking into the issue and there is now a possible solution.We first heard of this issue when EA DICE’s Global Battlefield Community Manager tweeted this message: To resolve the issue simply download the latest version of Punk Buster, you can download this here, and during the installation procedure it will uninstall the previous versions of the application.
