Ok, I must have gotten half of the download or something. I don't know how to get to that page.

I am on AA3.

Sorry, I am an extremely new player, and I am not a big war gamer. I am hopeless. Although I could probably snipe people from roofs.

You can't find that page, because everyone that is responding is talking about AA:PG, the latest release, not AA3.

AA3, enable PB is at the top of the in game Internet server browser. That's the browser in game that doesn't return any servers. You still need to use the steam browser to find a server.

It would help to post your error message.

Check the following settings and try to follow all steps I am posting:
Have you recently changed your Steam profile name? If it’s too long, you will be kicked for it.
TEMPORARILY UNINSTALL all security software. Just disabling them usually doesn't work. You can re-install after you’ve finished troubleshooting.
Antivirus
Firewalls

Examples can be seen here: viewtopic.php?f=22&t=3843


Check these STEAM settings:

America's Army 3 STEAM settings:

The following fixes PB problems but it will also fix other issues.
Quote:

In your Steam Library, right-click Americas Army 3, left-click "properties", select "Local Files" tab, click on "verify integrity of game cache" and let it do it's thing and download the pb files. When it completes, launch AA3 FROM YOUR STEAM LIBRARY by double clicking. It will begin install of PB like you 1st installed it.
