A new silent.dat is created if ET doesn't have one, XPSave and Skills will be reset.  

This is the easiest fix to get server list via legacy Masterserver judtb go to windows /sytem32/drivers/etc open hosts with editor and add the line to the bottom. You will see the Etl Masterserver lis

MOTD: resolving motd.etlegacy.com... resolved to 5.135.27.11:27951 Updater: resolving update.etlegacy.com... resolved to 5.135.27.11:27951 Requesting servers from the master etmaster.idsoftware.co

Allow ET in and out on your firewall???, from the sounds of it its currently blocked, hence not being able to connect even with IP. An uninstall and reinstall wont change firewall settings if its already established a block rule so you will have to enable it manually.

Can't load any servers.

 

Can you get a Screenshot of any error statements?

 

If you had just started ET and cannot join any servers, then no mod should have been loaded.  In that case, any type of  ET screenshot that you do should be found in your etmain\screenshots folder.  Uh, /autoscreenshot won't work in that case.  If you do a /screenshot, it will produce a *.tga file in your etmain/screenshots folder.

 

The SS below is from when I did a "ctrl ~+ to produce a "small console" , where I tested the "/screenshot" command.  That produced a 3,000 kb *.tga file.   The forums would not display it here, but only use it as a downloadable link.  

 

Here is the method to produce a much smaller *.jpg file from etmain (no mods loaded):  This file was saved as a 153kb "shot0001.jpg" , which is much, much smaller than a 3mb TGA file!

You could also do a "alt-enter" to turn ET into the "Windowed version" and hit the PrintScrn key to copy an image of the desktop into the clipboard.


 

BTW, I have TGA files in my ETMain/screenshots from 2012 through 2014 that are all 1,407 kb in size.  The three that I did in 2018 are 3,601 kb size.  The one that I just did today is 3,001 kb. :?:  I am wondering if that is because of the different versions of Windows that I was using during those years. :hmm 

 

I had upgraded this machine from Windows 7 to Win10, soon after the release-date of July 2015, hmmm.

XP and level are tied to your etkey mate, make sure you have your registered or old etkey otherwise as you see you wont have your XP or level.

 

Regarding no servers in the list....

 

Personally i use HLSW to store and to connect to my fav servers.....

However if your wanting to play FA servers you can delete all files starting with z from your ETMain folder and then add the attached .pk3 (FA's own z.pk3) to your ETMain folder......Loading up ET should then display all FA servers on the main menu, so easier to connect to if the server list isn't working.

The key you copied over probably wasn't your real ETKey, if its quite an old ET install then your ETKey would be in

 

C:\Users\YOURUSERNAME\AppData\Local\Punkbuster\ET\etmain

 

So check that location and see if you have an ETKey there, if so copy that one to your etmain folder.

 

EDIT***Just remembered that AppData folder is a hidden folder so you will need to turn viewing of hidden folders ON before you can see it.

 

To turn hidden folders ON:

 

Open either MyPC or any explorer (folder) window

Click View from the top menu and a ribbon will drop down if its not already showing, tick the box that says Hidden Items and you should then be able to see the AppData folder.

Just noticed you play beginners 2???..That is silent mod mate which doesn't use your etkey so you will need your silent.dat file from your old silent folder putting in your new one.
