I have Call of Duty and CoD: United Offensive, and I'm finding that on some servers in CoD, and all servers (that i've played on, which isn't many coz they're hard to find), I get kicked for not having the right punkbuster version (auto updates do not work). A few times I gotten this message:

PB server requires A1347 C1.203 - error loading pbag

OptusNet gives me this message

Server running old version C1.193

in any case, it them spits out crap about how it can't resolve to automarically update and I get kicked.

I went to and manually downloaded and installed all the files. I first tried placing them into Applications/Call of Duty/PB, and then tried placing them into Home/Library/Applcation Suppoer/Call of Duty/PB. But it didn't help.

I also tried their self-updating thingy that you run from within the PB folder and it is supposed to do its thing, but I got an error message with that:

** ERROR: Unknown game referenced in PB data file

I'm at a loss. Is there anyone out there still plaing CoD that has resolved these issues?
