So I haven't been able to go on the S1 server because it always boots me for having invalid pk.3 files, and just now I got booted from hardcore as well, for the same reason. Does anyone know how I could fix this?

if nothing above works, you can set your config to cl_allowdownload 1 (or something). Had a similar problem few years back where the way to fix it was to turn off the allowdownload and turn it back on again. But also be aware that the cl_allowdownload might give maleware (which was the case many years ago) don't think people doing that now, but you never know. Youc an also manually download the missing pk3 files.

 

Another thing if you get booted by the server for invalid pk3 files. Just exit the game/close it completely, start as Admin and connect to server, that should fix it,

1st: Can't run it as I'm using a mac

2nd:  Deleting silent folder didnt work as I'm connecting to servers without even needing to download anything despite deleting the folder.

3rd: I always run as admin

4th: Didnt work either :(

You are able to connect and play on some FA Silent-mod servers?  

 

You need to take special precautions with your name, etkey and silent.dat if you are going to test this problem on non-FA servers.

Hi, you should have opened by stating that you were a Mac user. Please provide your OS and client version as well as if you are using the ET Legacy client (with its version as well). In addition please provide a screen shot of the error or crash log.
