PunkBuster Issues
Ok, everytime I try to select a server after starting from Steam, it'll start the whole game and all, load up the map just fine, but after going to the team selection it freezes briefly and then kicks me out the server saying giving a PunkBuster error, saying that I've been losing key packets (9005). I've only been able to find one server so far that doesn't boot me. Anyone have a solution to my issue?

ok, go to your game library on steam. right click on AA3, select properties, then click local files and then click verify integrity. once u do that and it downloads a few things it will work.

Tried that a gazillion times no go...usually 5 files need replace sometimes 19. Clean install with no antivirus and firewall off still get 9005 error. There has to be some type of compatability issue with the update and my hardware is all I can think of. Another system in home is fine this one has the problems.

Performed this on top of a fresh punkbuster re-install. That seems to have worked. Thanks.

losing key packets is a firewall issue.it should add itself to the exception list but sometimes you have to do it manualy

Hello everyone.

I have the same problem "losing key packets 9005". But the wierd thing is i only have it on one specific server.
I did all the options mentioned above, and on other forums. But I'm still getting kicked 90% of the time.
Does anyone have any idea why this is happening only on this specific server? And what to do?

Thanks in advanced

Kind regards.

AA3 isn't supported by PunkBuster anymore, but here is a working PB folder

Click download button on top.

or
https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B-qy7ebHs54ZSlpXRUJ6Zmpqc1U/view?usp=sharing

Place it in Binaries
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\america's army 3\Binaries

It will come in a Zip, open it and copy/paste pb folder to Binaries.
