View Full Version : ACR Multiplayer Kick

12-06-2011, 04:45 AM
Hello all!
first of all, I'd like to say I'm new in the AC community, and can't wait to meat everybody http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

But for the real issue.
Alot of players, including me, hsd got this messege when trying to join a multiplayer game session:
you've been kicked from the server by PunkBuster
Punkbuster kicked player (name) (for 0 minutes) ...
RESTRICTION: service communication failure:PnkBstrA.exe

Sucks isn't it? paying alot of money for the game you want most and getting kicked out of the MP.
I hve done some research, and figured that the problem was in the v1.01 Update of the game.
anter uninstalling and reinstalling the game, without updatind it, the MP works just fine, but after the update I get the kick messege.
I hope that a v1.02 patch will be out soon so we could play online normally.

hoped I helped anyone,

I'm getting that exact same message! I hope they come out with a fix pronto!

So am I.
a quick v1.02 patch with working punkbuster is all that is needed.

I also have the same problem.
How do you start the game without applying the 1.01 fix ?
As soon as I started the game, 1.01 automatically started to download and install.

When the ubiAutoPatch started running, I simply pressed the "Quit" button, and played regulerly.
The multiplayer worked, an after patching it just stopped
