Hey there,

 

Been about a year or so since I've played ET and I got the itch again.  I downloaded and installed ET on a PC running Windows 7 but ran into an issue that has me slightly baffled.  

 

On the map loading screen, the game always seems to freeze after downloading the necessary map/file, whether it be the Silent version (since I've tried a few fresh installs) or sp_delivery_te (since this map is always on hardcore when I try to connect  :P .)  

 

Anyway, this has been going on for about a month or so.  I've tried installing/connecting on about 3 occasions with no success.  I made sure I was running as admin, tried installing Legacy to see if that would help, but still no success.  I installed the client from your forums so I assume it has nothing to do with missing essential info/files.  I feel like this has happened to me in the past, eons and eons ago, but it was only a temporary or one-off thing that kind of fixed itself on its own.  Just to fully sum up my problem (since I'm slightly stewed,) ET freezes when I'm on the loading screen of a map and the progress bar does not move at all.  I have to ctrl+alt+delete to get off the screen, but even that takes about a minute to register.  It always says ET is not responding.  

 

Norton and Spyware Doctor are running in the background (possibly Mcafee as well) which I have no control over since it's my dad's computer. I wonder if this has to do with the problem?  I have no experience using Norton and Mcafee; I've used Spyware Doctor in the past with no problems.  

 

Thanks for the help,

MOTION

Probably not your problem but get rid of Norton, Spyware Doctor and McAfee. Waste of time and resources

Have you given our PK3 cleaner a shot?

This will delete custom and extra pk3 files from your ETMain folder, one of which could be corrupted.

You can download it here: http://fearless-assa...to-pk3-cleaner/
It does not need an installer, simply right click and "Run as Administrator" :)
