In a previous post, I explained that while I was able to correct one major problem with BF3 after the 11-22 patch, I was now seeing a separate, more insidious issue where the game would lock up in between maps. I believe I’ve now fixed this as well by running PBSETUP and updating the game’s PunkBuster files manually.
I was able to partially resolve my Battlefield 3 issues (as posted here) by running a “repair” operation on the game from the Origin client. Numerous rounds of Windows Updates and driver updates didn’t help at all. Now the game seems to crash on map changes under certain circumstances, but I haven’t been able to isolate the problem yet.
