Vista Premium 64 bit + Punkbuster + (Enemy Territory or Call of Duty4) = hard freeze
Posted Mar 7, 2009 - 04:10 PM
My Problem is, that my PC freeze up, when I play Enemy Territory/Call of Duty4 on an Server with Punkbuster. When I play Cod4 Singleplayer Modus or Enemy Territory without PB I can play as long as I will.
- I have the newest final hardware driver on my PC (grafic card, Bios, Sata, Audio, Chipset and Raid)
- Enemy Territory have admin rights and compatibility mode XP Service Pack 2
- I closed all other Programms with "Task Manager"
- My RAM have 0 Errors (Memtest > 2 hours)
- CPU and grafic card temperatur = ok
- I updated my PB manual with pbsetup and the values from the PB Test tool all "green" ...
MBoard: Asus P5B Deluxe
Graka: 8800 GTS
CPU: Intel 6420 (2 x 2.13)
RAM: 4 G
Power Supply: Zalman 600 Watt

This fixed some issues with COD4 crashing to desktop for some users as a result of the onboard chip's driver incompatibility.
Also, I run 64x Vista Ultimate, and have both games installed and they run perfectly without backward compatibility mode. The only thing I changed in the compatibility options was to set them to automatically run as administrator so that I could skip the right-click and select issue all the time.
I'll be around more Tuesday, got one more shift at work to complete Monday evening(CST North American time) and then maybe we can jump on IRC or such and get to the root of it.

There are some games/compatibility mode combination (such as running as Win2000) which will allow PB to communicate again, but you may experience other issues with the particular game itself, such as no sound, bad graphics etc. ...
Like Roadwarrior said before, running games under Vista in comp. modes will cause you troubles and does not represent an option at all. There should be no reason to run Cod4 under WinXP emulation, just allow it to run as administrator and it will do fine under Vista.
