  1. You created a new ET installation and tried to copy your etkey and autoexec.cfg into it? What about your profile folder and etconfig.cfg? Actually, a default etconfig should have been created when the installer ran. Why don't you open the etkey and autoexec files in an editor and take a look at them? I had trouble with a Doom2 config file that somehow got an extra KB of binary appended to it and the game refused to run. That was with FAT32 and not NTFS, though. Have you run ChkDsk or some other file-system checker? This sounds like some kind of corruption, either of some files or of system-settings...
  2. Did you "Ask Microsoft"? "Access Denied" or other errors when you access or work with files and folders in Windows That is the first response to a search for "broken windows folder permissions", which may mean that your 'real answer' is more complex.
  3. I was thinking that too, but I wonder if his main-user is set to Administer. I think most of us have done that. It is 'best practice' to not do that.
  4. I would have voted for the HD topic, too.
  5. Do you mean in RL or in ET ?
  6. Thank You, Sir! I will quit checking my Bremen demos then. A team-Killed Spreadem doing the flame-putt-putt across the sky! No wonder you flew so straight! My own "flinger" would have had me doing Zig-Zags across the sky!
  7. It might have been, but the action was not quite what I experience when I do that, especially the "putt, putt" of the flames, although I can think of an explanation for that. (If it was me )
  8. That may have been one of my "!fling self while flaming" pranks for the players! I usually get little chat-response so I wondered if I was amusing the crowd or not! Thanks for that Demo-to-Youtube. I shall cherish it always! @Young Fox What date and server was that on? I might be able to make a YouTube video from "inside the flame". I have not found it from back to 29 July...
  9. /locked, for sure now!
  10. I had searched for that, too, but I mostly got Cisco pages that I did not fully understand. I don't think that I searched long enough to find "home-user" complaints. OH, and I replied to Jim before I saw our tech-expert Xernicus's reply above!
  11. Notice that I did not spammer-ban you! I was not 100% sure, but your 2 posts at that time fit a pattern of the modern spambots. One difference between you and the two (DD did one) spambots that I had banned from this topic was that you had asked a question and did not offer links to vpn/proxy services. ( I would use a thumbs-up emoticon, but I am not sure that that is a polite gesture in your country. ) BTW, this clan is "sensitive" about proxy-services when used on our game-servers. Otherwise, it is part of Modern Internet Life. I also edited my edit in your other post at that time to reflect your now-proven humanity:
  12. The offer is confirmed, but I did not test the "yes" option yet. (What it says and what it does do may be two different things. ) YES, it did redirect me to Jay3 / Beginners #1.
  13. It is best to keep your email address more private and to use your profile messenger instead. You could then give your correspondent your non-FA email address if you wish. I have removed that email from your post. This is a public forum and email-harvesting bots may have gotten your email addy already, aside from the human-element problem. If that is your forum-registration email and you have to abandon it, then you should put any new address into your private profile. I know this story well because I once received 10,000 mailer-daemon emails in a week. My address had been used in the "return-path" in the Header, so all of the "receiver-email not exist" type of replies from the Mailer-Daemons came to me and not to the real sender or to the infected-senders' accounts (which might have alerted some victims to their 'infections'). They died out within 10 days after having started as a trickle and then becoming a flood of thousands every day. They had probably 'captured' my address via the CCs on the chain-emails that my new-to-computers relatives kept sending me. With my email-system at that time, I had to "peel open" the layers of messages to get to the original, exposing Hundreds of address in the CC-headers in each message. (I had also thought of making a mass-mailing to all of those addresses to teach the victims about "email hygiene". ) I never got my relatives to properly use BCC and I must thank FaceBook for fixing that problem for me. Yes, I just got up (at 0430) and am in my "morning Sir_Types_a_Lot" mode. I WILL help @Gengis with 'that problem' today!
  14. Perhaps you could visit there and "spice it up"! ...oh wait, that looks like a squirt-gun being used to put OUT a fire!
  15. That pic of the "gold-plated AK's" remind me of the stories about Saddam Hussein and two of his sons. They seem to be blocking access to the A/C and the music! / /
  16. That is why I did not include this in the quote... Probably meaning this player " https://liquipedia.net/overwatch/Fl0w3R "
  17. Do you mean like this?
  18. I checked my !help on Silent#1 just now and found: help: help for 'resetmystats': Description: Reset your statistics: SMG kills and deaths, K/D rating and PRW rating. Syntax: !resetmystats Uh, I just checked the Nipper's info and his smg kill/death was not reset, unless he got 13199 / 7810 very quickly???
  19. Why do I immediately have fears for their marriage?
  20. Let us know if you ever notice any other symptoms... Does anyone know how someone could lose their stats (KD & PRW) but not their XP on a Silent-mod server? (other than a server DataBase error?) BTW, NippleFlicker could not make his tagged-up name 'fit', so he plays as =F|A=NipFlick now.

    His Alias of " *Own!X* " shows on TBS as exclusively on FA-Beginners since 8 August : https://et.trackbase.net/?mod=playerinfo&idx=5884717&show=server so it is not the "lose XP after gone 30 days from server" issue. His profile GUID shows on jay#3 as "level 3, trusted regular" and as last seen on server 13.5 hours ago.
  22. I did not recognize you, with your new "bosoms"! "Nancy reacted to this" with a :sad: I was referring to the bosoms on your avatar vis a vis the Real Nancy Kerrigan.
  23. We get "returnees" all the time! Some things have changed...
  24. "Losing" your xp should only happen if you 'lose' your etkey file from etmain (jay & NQ) or your silent.dat file from your Silent mod folder. Save both of those files somewhere off of your computer so that you can easily restore your XP and FA-ID easily if tragedy should strike. Neither do I. I wonder if his file-paths are being messed up somehow? @NippleFlicker what is your version of ET (2.6b or ETlegacy) and what is your operating system? That might not work, as ET 2.6b seems to re-write the etconfig.cfg file during each session, with at least the ""seta r_lastValidRenderer "whatever GPU you have"" and perhaps other lines. A read-only etkey file might work, but if it is in the default location, then only ET should have permission to change it, normally. That is a thought, but his etconfig.cfg files should be written to during each ET session and thus be a "fresh" file. Nipple should at least protect his etkey, silent.dat and etconfig.cfg files from being "flicked". I have automatic online backups and local manual backups of those files. About every month, I copy my etconfigs to "etconfig#190815.cfg" (for a backup today, with the #date in 'traditional' computer-dating format). My online-backup sets include all text files in my ET installation, which includes all /condumps and *.cfg files. @NippleFlicker If you ever do lose your W:ET and/or your S:ET GUIDs, then you will have to re-enter any new ones into your profile before being setleveled to 11 again on the servers. Let us know immediately, so that we can unset your old GUIDs, too. Another thought: if ET somehow cannot "read" your etkey and/or silent.dat files, you could seem to lose your xp that way. I don't know if the FA server would try to download a new etkey or silent.dat file in that case or not. I will go check Silent#1 for the GUID that I had set you level 11 on there with... Here is the alias-history for the level 5 GUID that you had on Silent#1 yesterday, when I set you to level 11 there: __#__|_____First Seen______|______Last Seen______|_____Time Played____|__Name__ 1 | 2019-04-08 20:05:25 | 2019-08-14 23:53:39 | 16min 57s | ETPlayer 2 | 2019-08-14 23:46:22 | 2019-08-14 23:47:28 | 1min 17s | ******** 3 | 2019-05-10 18:25:53 | 2019-08-14 23:46:22 | 8d 7h 33min 18s | NippleFlicker! 4 | 2019-04-08 20:11:16 | 2019-08-14 23:41:48 | 1d 21h 44min 56s | madm!ke 5 | 2019-06-05 22:14:34 | 2019-06-05 22:18:57 | 4min 23s | |DOM|NippleFlicker! 6 | 2019-06-04 22:35:59 | 2019-06-04 22:36:27 | 28s | jidkfhiosuaf 7 | 2019-05-18 21:44:27 | 2019-05-18 21:44:32 | 5s | madmike 8 | 2019-05-07 19:05:03 | 2019-05-10 15:32:23 | 22min 16s | NippleFlicker By that history, you have had the same Silent.dat file and S:ET for moths. Your XP should be saving on Silent#1 okay, UNLESS you have not connected to the server for 30 days. All of us can "lose our XP" that way. OKAY: It looks like there is a connection-gap between "2019-06-05 " and "2019-08-14 " on Silent#1, which would cause you to lose your XP there. You might have different names when you connect to an FA Silent server if you had just came there from another Silent server after playing on that one with a "not NippleFlicker" name. (Now that you are a level-11 FA Trial member, you should not use your FA-GUID to play on other clans' servers, where it could be "stolen".) XP is saved on each server and not across all FA servers. (Except for a situation with the NQ servers.) This jumbled reply is typical of me. I tend to use such posts as a "trouble-shooting" record. (* BTW, DoubleDragon 'reacted' to this post before I had finished. He can 'retract' his reaction if he is now disappointed. *)
  25. He is on Silent#1 right now and it seems that his etkey file got through the transfer okay, his Silent.dat file did not survive the trip. Uh, maybe not the etkey, either???
