Jaymod has and has had glow for ages. What PB is kicking for is a "game hook", which is some application that "hooks" onto the game binaries and does something when it wants. Hooking things is very common in general, but when done to a game client you have to assume that it's for cheating purposes.

I guarantee you I don't have anything hooking my client when I connect, yet I get kicked with that. Therefore, it's a false positive.

Yeah, it is PB being PB, which is rather unfortunate since there's nothing I can do to fix it. Like I said, I'll try recompiling tonight and see if it changes anything.

I built a release version of 2.1.10 (which is really only 2.1.9 with an incremented version number) and still getting game hook violation. I hope PB takes care of this on their end quickly.

PB is driving me crazy. On the 2.3.0 branch I'm getting kicked, from my local server no less, for disallowed program/driver. Really?

Ok this is really starting to get on my nerves. Trying to test sv_cvar locally, and I keep getting kicked. I suppose I could just disable PB, but I shouldn't have to.

Good news is at least half of it works :)

While you were away, after the PB updates of September 3 and 4, 2010, lots of people started getting kicked for "Losing key packets #9014" at random times. It got so bad that some servers ended up disabling PB. It took them 2 months to come up with a fix, with two updates on the same day:

Saturday 11.06.2010 [4:30PM]

Version 1.778 of the PB Server for ET has been released to our PB Master Servers for auto-update and to our website download page. This version further addresses kicks for "Losing Key Packets" with code #9014.

Saturday 11.06.2010 [12:30PM]

Version 1.777 of the PB Server for ET has been released to our PB Master Servers for auto-update and to our website download page. This version addresses a bug that was causing erroneous kicks for "Losing Key Packets" with code #9014.

Today I was playing for 3 hours, using a Linux based system, with no problems! :shock:
Then I try to play on a Windows based system and kicked ...
Can you try it too?
