I always start my game via ET.exe and then just click on FA servers(don't play any other servers)
I have autoexec where i set hunkmegs and zone megs(160,32) but when i start et and check console its still the same(128,24)
Im on server atm(map venice) i check mem info and total hunk i use is 128 and total zone is 24,still no changes,
When i set in game hunkmegs 160 and zonemegs 32,then vid_restart i still get this
com_hunkmegs is 128 latched 160 and zonemegs is 32,
edit:i dont use any parameter,i normally start game in etmain,
1. you can't change zonemegs after the game has started, you can change it only from the command line because the game needs that memory before it reads your autoexec.
2. you say you use 128 (your whole memory?) have you checked total hunk in use, or just total hunk? Have you checked megabytes in zone blocks or total zone?
for the sound:
2. you did a /vid_restart and hunkmegs is still 128? Dumb question, what is the exact name of the cvar you tried to change, com_hunkmegs?
edit: Ah ok, I see you said latched, just ignore this was actually dumb... Strange that you can't change com_hunkmegs even after a vid_restart, are you trying this just after loading et, or while you are playing on a server? Because some servers force some settings on you.
