Unfortunately, the great Facebook title, Battle Punks, can cause some trouble for the users who are not really.. ahem… used to Java. We shouldn’t go to deep into details, what it matters is that I’ve found the answers for most of your problems encountered while playing or trying to play Battle Punks on Facebook, created by the developers themselves. So read on the FAQ below and enjoy the great game, punk!

Q: My game is stuck at “Validating” and/or “Game Loading” and has not done anything for several minutes (more than 5 minutes). What should I do now?

A: Please take the following steps:

1) Open up the Task Manager (ctrl+alt+del) to make sure the Battle Punks process is not running. If it is, close the process (End Process) and relaunch the game.

2) If the Battle Punks process is not running, then do a clean install. It’s an inelegant solution, but it’s the best way to get you back in the game. (See instructions below).

Also, if you could send us your Java Log that would be wonderful! (See instructions below).

Q: How do I do a clean install?
A: To do a Clean install, you simply need to do these two things:

1. Delete your Battle Punks Folder

Windows XP
Delete everything in this directory:
C:\Documents and Settings\(user)\Application Data\BattlePunks

Windows 7/Vista
Delete everything in this directory:

2. Reinstall Battle Punks

Go to http://apps.facebook.com/battlepunks/

The game will reinstall.

Hopefully now the game will start running once more!
