Checking in

Post by jonoconor on Thu Feb 23, 2017 7:54 pm

Folks,

I've been offline for a few months. I'm down in Nicaragua for a while, and my PC is a long way away. But I'm thinking of downloading ET to my Surface Pro to see if it will handle it. Are there still people playing on Selene's server? Looking forward to getting killed by old friends.

Hey jono, if it has Windows 10, it should work no problem Wink

27960 gets crowded on the evenings (my early mornings) and 27955 has players during the day.

Happy fragging Smile

Hey folks! I finally found the time to download and install ET. I have the server addresses in GameTracker and I can get there to download the maps, but when I try to play I get "Game code (ui_mp_x86.dll) failed. Pure Server check."

It's been so long I forget how to get past this bit. Is there a forum post here that has troubleshooting instructions?

Thanks,
jono

Try running as admin. Also make sure you have etkey and punkbuster enabled. If you don't have etkey, disable punkbuster.

Thanks, Butterfly. I'll try those suggestions.

I vaguely remember etkey. I do see it in C:\Program Files (x86)\Wolfenstein - Enemy Territory\etmain. How do I enable/disable that?

And I do see the help docs in C:\Program Files (x86)\Wolfenstein - Enemy Territory\Docs\Help\Readme. I was hoping not to have to wade through them if there's an easy brainless fix though. ;-)

It's late; a job for tomorrow, methinks.

To enable punkbuster you have to start ET, click "Play online", and in the bottom-right corner there should be an option to enable punkbuster, provided you didnt do it while creating a new profile. To run ET as admin, right click on ET shortcut (or et.exe if you don't have a shortcut) and click "run as administrator".

Alternatively download this: https://www.etlegacy.com/
It will do all those things for you, and seems a better choice for newer systems. Wink It defaults to your screen resolution, gives you an option to minimize, creates etkey and sets up punkbuster.

I will also add this link to the main page of the forum.

Thanks again. Do I have to uninstall to download etlegacy, or will it update the installation?

It will be separate, but you can uninstall to make sure it has a "clean way" so to speak Wink
