losing key packets 9014

Post by Scortch » Tue Sep 07, 2010 4:50 pm

So I guess it was Friday or Saturday that PB started to kick me, giving the reason as 'losing key packets 9014'. It is kicking me regularly, sometimes after 5 minutes of play and sometimes after 1/2 hour or so, but every time I connect without fail for the last three days. I noticed that there were a lot of other folks getting kicked for the same reason this weekend.

Anyone know what going on?

Here's what I have tried to remedy the situation...

I've set pbsleep to 500.
I've made sure pb was updated with pbsetup.exe
I've checked my pb installation with pbsvc.exe
I've made sure that both pnkbstr A and B were running
I've stopped and restarted PB.

Nothing seemed to help at all. My lag meter could be as smooth as glass and then BAM out of nowhere the screen freezes and 2 or three seconds later I'm kicked for two minutes.

I know this is happening to other people on other servers as well. All weekend I've been looking for info on this problem and at first there was nothing about this error (specifically) on google. Then yesterday, I noticed some threads being started on other boards describing this same problem. It seems to me that this is a new problem with PB (maybe due to an update the did before the weekend?).

Anyway, I'm looking for advice about what I could possiblly try next.

I'm going to uninstall PB now, reinstall it and see if that makes a difference.

If this keeps up it might just be easier to play with cheaters....



......Nah!

I'm not trying to brag but I did want to throw this out there:

I have not been kicked yet by PB for this problem while I have been playing and watching people being kicked for it. Maybe it is just not my time yet. I have not changed anything since it all started to happen.

So of course, now that I have said this, today I will get kicked.

:shrug:

Someone should submit a ticket at evenbalance and see if they can get a reply!?

Punkbuster's ET page, under News & Release notes, says:

=============
Saturday 09.04.2010 [5:00PM]

Version 1.774 of the PB Server for ET has been released to our PB Master Servers for auto-update and to our website download page. This is a maintenance release.

Friday 09.03.2010 [3:30PM]

Version 2.236 of the PB Client for ET has been released to our PB Master Servers for auto-update and to our website download page. This is a maintenance release.
==============

I suppose the date & time are Central Time, USA.

I got kicked once and have noticed many others kicked, sometimes repeatedly. Have seen group-kicks of up to three at a time.

I got kicked last night for same thing, only error code was 9004.

Still, I updated PB (using pbsetup.exe) and everything's fine again.

This being constantly kicked is REALLY starting to annoy the F*** outta me.


I opened a ticket at PB over a week ago. It took a day for them to get back to me. They told me to delete the PB folder from my game inatallation and then to update PB. I did that and there was no change. I let them know. And again it took a day for them to get back to me. They had me make a PB logfile and submit that. That was five days ago and I still haven't heard anything back. I think they may have forgotten about me.

Since this started happening, I have been doing periodic google searches for "losing key packets 9014". At first there was one result, then two, then three, and now there's like eight different threads started at different forums. This problem seems to be affecting a lot of players on a lot of servers. One of the threads evfen mentioned that there have been a lot of ET servers that have disabled PB because of this. In all of these threads there is not one working solution offered.

It's weird because sometimes I'll connect, and play for an hour or more with no problems and other times I'll connect and be kicked inside of five minutes.

I don't know what to do, . ET is how I relax, and this 9014 stuff isn't very relaxing at all.

anyway, I thought I would vent a little ...

..and to ask if maybe someone else here could open a ticket at PB, but NOT as a PLAYER, rather as an SERVER ADMIN.

This problem is not only affecting me. Every time I log on, I see people being kicked for this reason. Sometimes three of four at a time. It must be affecting traffic on the server, and I would think that it would be almost as important to the admins here to get this figured out as it is for the players being affected by it.


I mean Fuuuuuu.... :wall:

Thanks Guys.

Yeah, I feel your sentiments and I fnd myself in the same boat. It's like a random disconnect for no good reason and as fera has heard me rant, this is another nail that PB have put into the ET coffin...

However, I'm not sure how much this would do. Hell, I'm not sure EvenBalance would place any priority of a server admin over that of so many players all complaining about the same thing...

They dont, trust me from years past.

This kick and issue is nothing new though, we actually had to disable PB many years ago as well due almost nobody being able to play. Talk about an ugly sight of throwing meat to the wolves, bots bots and more bots. Not that their arent any around even with PB on but once its gone...... :eek:

So, I've had a fiddle about...

1: Tried it over wireless (WRT54GCv2), same thing happens.
2: Tried it wired, same thing.
3: Tried with and without FW and AV software, fail...
4: Wired my PC to the modem (it's a damned bridge! nothing more! A modem does something clever, this is just a neutered router)... AND!!!! FAIL!!!!
5: Tried pbweb update, fail.
6: Tried pbsetup, fail.
7: Tried pbsvc... fail...

I can sometimes last a few hours, more often, I can barely last a match... The cruelest thing is, if I can't play ET here, I don't wanna play ET...

What the hell have even balance gone and done now? For guys who program anti-cheat applications, they need to learn a lot more about the architecture they're programming for... Not just old documentation, but up to date changes that have massively modified the way data travels now...

Excuse me while I scream at my imaginary Even Balance board.

Could try pb_sleep 300, like somebody suggested on another site. I've tried the max (500, I think) before to avoid other PB piddlys, but to no avail.

Even if you alredy answered to this thread and questions boss and i know that you're time is precious ,
Is there a phone number somewhere to join a PB admin or technician or could we make a ''Group ticket'' to shake things a bit , maybe if they see that their biggest servers like us (clients for them for a lot of years now) are decreasing constantly and the number of players that play regulary stop playing maybe they will try to remain to this or just telling why it's happening and what to do .
I'm sure there is someone , somewhere who can easly fix this ,everybody knows somebody like the bad boys say's in the hood by here :lol:
I dont know how PB and those kind of things works but i'm sure they can say at least what's it's happening .Hey hey in the movies they can find a quater in a crack under a building in demolition in the time to say it ,so plz don't tell me there is nothing to do.
I just want to have fun with my friends and killing them :lol:

I feel sorry for those who are severely afflicted, like me. For those people, ET is practically unplayable...

I'm sure EvenBalance already knows about this... and doesn't care...

I'm sure that, for them, this is an old, outdate game that has very little priority in their work...

I think this is just a corporate shaft...

But then again, I'm feeling really bitter today.

I just don't understand why some people have it bad and others (like me) don't have any issues at all. I haven't gotten a PB kick for at least a year or so.
