Well, I bought PT today and with the installation, it asked me to download PunkBuster and I did. I didn't have it installed before.. but anyways. The first few times, PB worked and I remember seeing an option to turn it on and off. But later on tonight I noticed that I couldn't enter games with PB enabled and I couldn't find the box to check yes for the life of me. I also checked in the game directory and the PB documents are in there. So can anyone tell me why I'm having this problem and/or how to fix it?

Thanks.

should read the other threads posted already, add your voice to them so they are noticed, also post under the punkbuster thread in the tech support forum

I'm sorry you comp users are having this problem. This is one of the reasons I chose Xbox Live over PC. Right now, the only bug in XBL is where one player doesn't always join the game from the lobby. They're probably gonna fix this soon. BTW, Ubi, Punkbuster is a good idea, since some hack can and will come along, but if you're gonna do it, do it right. Comp users don't need this problem 2 days after they get the game.

I'm getting my copy tomorrow.. I assume this problem is only when trying to join a server using Punkbuster, correct? But joining a server not running it.. will work fine, yes?

Yes thats right, but i dont think you gonna have alot of servers without PunkBuster. Why would the implement it then anyways if servers not going to use it. PB all the way, just fix the bug http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/351.gif

No, you can't join crap after that punkbuster enable tick dissapears.

Well probably because all the servers are PB ENABLED. I cant say it for sure cos i still dont have the game, but it should be easy to tell if the server has PB on or off.
