    Punkbuster Service Desktop shortcut


    howdy, is there any way to create a PnkBstrA Service restart desktop shortcut, reason is since i upgraded my mobo/ram/cpu at christmas i always get the punkbuster 0 seconds issue straight away joining a server, basically every time i want to play any punkbuster installed game i get same issue so i have to run pbsvc and click test service, if connection fails i have to then restart the pnkbstra service then re-run pbsvc n test service again to make sure there's a connection before playing the games, hence a desktop restart shortcut.

    You do not need this to game anymore, I just deleted it from the one game that had it.

    thanks for reply, what you mean do not need this game anymore, but your wrong, punkbuster needs to be installed and up to date to play online as get kicked soon as load into a server unless you can find a none punkbuster server, if ya do its a hacker fest

    Have a look here

    Run Punkbuster Services Only When Needed - gHacks Tech News

    It shows how to make a bat file, the example shows a BF game

    Creating a batch file to start the services when needed and launch the game

    The Punkbuster services need to be running before the game is started so that you will not be kicked from servers requiring Punkbuster on the user machine. A batch file is ideal for this situation.

    We will create a basic batch file that will start both Punkbuster services and the game. (Please note that you will need to run the batch script with administrative privileges for the services to start).

    Create a new text document. Paste the following three lines into it:

    NET START "PnkBstrA"
    NET START "PnkBstrB"
    START /d "C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\Battlefield Bad Company 2" BFBC2Game.exe

    The first two lines start the two Punkbuster services PnkBstrA and PnkBstrB. The third line launches the actual game, in this example it is Battlefield Bad Company 2. Make sure you edit the path to the game if it is installed in a different directory, or a different game.

    Save the text file and rename it to gamename.bat, e.g badcompany2.bat. Right-click the new bat file and select to run it as an administrator. The batch file should start the two Punkbuster Services and then the game
