Recommended Posts

1) Download Silent Mod 0.4.0 here:





2) Unzip the silent-0.4.0.zip file in the "Wolfenstein- Enemy Territory" folder (the same folder as ETDED).


3) Next unzip the silent.zip file.


4) Move the silent.cfg from the etmain folder to the silent folder (optional).





A config file is full of code that lets you customize your server. Open silent.cfg. Examine and modify the selected variables below. These commands are copied as they appear in the silent.cfg, and useful comments are added in [ ] brackets. Note: to uncomment means to remove the // from the front of each statement.


//set dedicated 2 [uncomment if you are running an internet accessible server. Use 1 for a local server. 2 is for internet.]


//set net_ip "localhost" [uncomment and set this to your server's ip address]


//set net_port 27960 [uncomment and set this to your port address]

At the bottom of the silent.cfg file you will see the phrase "exec objectivecycle.cfg". This tells your server to run a file called objectivecycle.cfg, which stores your map cycle.


You should pick maps that:


1) Are omnibot 0.81 capable, unless you like empty servers. Look in the "nav" folder of omnibot 0.81 for the huge list of omnibot capable maps. Or you can make your own custom waypoints if you are motivated. Read an omnibot tutorial if you need help.


2) Are small enough to not annoy your players when they have to download it. I don't use maps over 15MB, but it is an arbitrary limit. Remember ET is a global game and many players do not have a good connection.


3) Are the right size. Many servers customize their maps or have corrupted copies. Be sure to check your maps against a large reputable source before you distribute maps to the public.


4) Avoid maps that make your server lag. Some maps are worse than others depending on things like added features or atmospheric effects.


This is the unmodified objectivecycle.cfg file:

set d1 "set g_gametype 2 ; map oasis ; set nextmap vstr d2"

set d2 "set g_gametype 2 ; map battery ; set nextmap vstr d3"

set d3 "set g_gametype 2 ; map goldrush ; set nextmap vstr d4"

set d4 "set g_gametype 2 ; map radar ; set nextmap vstr d5"

set d5 "set g_gametype 2 ; map railgun ; set nextmap vstr d6"

set d6 "set g_gametype 2 ; map fueldump ; set nextmap vstr d1"

vstr d1


Change "g_gametype 2" to "g_gametype 6" if you want to enable mapvoting. Mapvoting is fun and lets you offer more choices to players. Replace the stock maps in the list above with the names of any maps you want to play on your server.


Be sure to store your maps in your etmain folder, and in a redirect server on a different IP address so players can download your maps quickly. ET downloads files very slowly, around 13kb/sec, without a redirect. A good redirect server can download maps at 500kb/sec.


Remember to put the name of your redirect server in here: set sv_wwwBaseURL "".





If you are renting a server, you will be provided with a link to a website where you can enter start up commands. This is what I use:


+set dedicated 2 +set net_ip (your IP address) +set net_port 27960 (whatever your port is) +set fs_game silent +set g_tyranny 1 (this must be enabled in the command line) +exec silent.cfg +set omnibot_enable 1


You can also make a server on your home computer very easily with PDP Serverizer (google it).




You will probably customize many other settings on your own. It is helpful to add comments with // so you can remember what the previous settings were, or to give yourself a note for later.


There is an official server manual here for more details:

Tutorial useful, but why must manually install the update for silent?


I installed it automatically enters the game in the Silent recruiting xps server.

This is not a user install... this is a server install...(for server owners)

In here I figured, well if I had not read the guide looked good I would have understood immediately.

Thanks for the clarification greetings!
