Yeah... got the game today and I was playing the multi-player demo this morning and it worked perfectly fine... now i boot up the real game and go to play multi-player and it always says I need punkbuster turned ON to play. I have only seen the switch ONCE, and that was when my dad was on, and it was on the opening screen after the profil login... now I can't turn PB on... WHAT DID YOU DO UBI? Did you make the demo better than the game?!
Nice.

I had the same problem and wrote Ubisoft. They said that a patch is coming out soon that would fix this problem. So we'll just have to wait a little longer to enjoy the multiplayer http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

This has ALREADY been stickied in the tech support forum; you should be posting about tech issues there.
Me and Colevant discovered this PB fix, the link for the sticky is below.

Edit: And the link to the file does work. You need to right-click it and save-as.
