    Silent HC Issue

    I finally noticed something about Tru Blood's SS. The top line seems to be "profiles//-hud.dat" I think that it should be "profiles/base-name/-hud.dat. My line in that startup area in console shows as "profiles/redbaird/-hud.dat It is as though you have no profile name in the Silent mod folder. The next line "No HUD specified, default HUD loaded" might be implying the same thing. I don't find any "-hud.dat" anywhere in my Silent/profiles folder. I do see a number of HUD cvars in my etconfig.cfg file. I wonder if that "-hud.dat" might be a temporary collection of all the HUD cvars that is being passed to ET.exe to create the HUD for that mod. When you first downloaded the Silent-mod-files from the server, ET should have copied the profiles/yourNmae/etconfig.cfg from the ETmain/profile folder. A search found that a few others have reported that "no HuD found...", but they do have a proper path showing: profiles/slowtobi/-hud.dat = unlike your "profiles//-hud.dat", it does have a profile name in the path, but has the same "no HUD" line next. No HUD specified, default HUD loaded So having a default HUD is not a problem, but I am still worried about that // in that filepath. I suggest that you navigate to your Wolfenstein ... / Silent folder and see if that has a profile folder with a name-folder, and if that name-folder has an etconfig.cfg file in it.

  3. I forgot to congratulate you!  (and one other :( )

    Do you mean the "name.cfg" file? That won't work if the name.cfg is in a sub-folder of etmain. All of the mods' folders should be in the same "Wolfenstein - Enemy Territory" that etmain is in. (FA mods = Jaymod, Silent, NQ/NoQuarter, Nitmod) If you have a ^-codes-colored-name in your name.cfg, then you should be able to copy that (without any / or commands and paste it into the name-field on the Silent-mod ET-options menu. Or just open the console, type /name and paste the ^-codes-colored-name in and press enter. That should at least set it for Silent-mod servers. When all is working, then you can try /seta name ^-codes-colored-name in the console. That /seta should set your etmain/profiles/name/efconfig.cfg to have that name.

    Is that name.cfg in your etmain folder? If so, then it should work in all the mods. If it is in the Jaymod folder, then it will only work on Jay-servers. If you open the console and do /exec name.cfg, then it should work. I use that method for my various renames, like namexmas, namepink, nameengie, nameFa, etc, All of my "name".cfg files are in my ETmain. If you have /exec name.cfg in a config file or a bind, then it won't work. Files do not need the / first, like the console does. Your etconfig.cfg files doe not have slashes, either. ADDED: I will have to try "exec nameFA" in mainchat to see how that works. I have never tried to do that before....
  8. That was reported and fixed. You can report such problems via "Contact Us" on these forums OR on FA-Discord on the "server status" channel: https://discordapp.com/channels/325403318291791873/572839311884681236 Thanks for the pic-proof of that distressing situation!
  9. Lesson Learned: Never try to run through a pile of broken glass. Sub_lesson: It is better to properly disconnect any input/output cables from electronic device that you are trying to steal or you may wind up with unusable loot.

    Did you save your silent.dat file and put it back onto the new Silent folder? If not, you may have a new S:ET. I prefer to find the source of the problems, rather than just "fixing" it the quick way. How is your Silent-menu sound-volume? It should be in the middle as a default, I think...??? [hr[ ++ I searched this forum for "no sound" and found some of my old advice in a prior topic, which may or may not help with your problem. Here is the search-link for "no sound" in this Forum : https://fearless-assassins.com/search/?&q="no sound"&type=forums_topic&page=1&nodes=11&search_and_or=or&sortby=relevancy The FA-List of ET Cvars : has various sound-related cvars, including snd_reload ETMain Client Reloads all sound files? snd_restart ETMain Client Restarts sound engine along with ( I do hope that you do not have "s_mute 1" for some reason! s_bits ETMain Client s_currentMusic ETMain Client Lists current/most recent music sound file name & location s_debugMusic ETMain Client s_defaultsound ETMain Client s_doppler ETMain Client Toggle doppler effect s_info ETMain Client Lists info of sound system in console s_initsound ETMain Client s_khz ETMain Client Sets frequency of the music, very high quality = 44 [1.03], high = 22 while low = 11 s_list ETMain Client Lists all sound file names and locations in console s_mixahead ETMain Client For mixing audio? s_mixPreStep ETMain Client s_musicvolume ETMain Client Sets volume of the music, multiplier value (0.0 to 1.0) s_mute ETMain Client Toggle muting, 1 disables all sounds, 0 plays them as normal s_nocompressed ETMain Client Dont play any compressed music files? s_numchannels ETMain Client s_separation ETMain Client Stereo seperation? s_show ETMain Client Lists in console every sound when it is played [C] s_stop ETMain Client Stops playing any sounds currently playing s_testsound ETMain Client s_volume ETMain Client Sets volume of the game sounds, multiplier value (0.0 to 1.0) s_wavonly ETMain Client Toggles playing only .wav files? Here are all of the "s_" cvars in my ET, produced by opening the console, typing "/s_ and pressing TAB. I then condumped them into a file. ]\s_ s_stop s_info s_list s_initsound = 1 s_nocompressed = 0 s_testsound = 0 s_show = 0 s_debugMusic = 0 s_currentMusic = sound/music/menu_server.wav s_mute = 0 s_channels = 2 s_bits = 16 s_wavonly = 0 s_defaultsound = 0 s_mixPreStep = 0.05 s_mixahead = 0.2 s_khz = 22 s_doppler = 1 s_separation = 0.5 s_musicvolume = 0.041667 A couple of those look like trouble, such as the initsound the mute especially. There might be a problem with ET 'connecting' to your sound system, via drivers or hardware. Do you not get sound from both speakers and headphones?

    I would not blame windows 10. I did look at the source code and found a common string-parser-function that checks for " \ ", " ; : and " // " in the strings fed to it, and returns that same error-statement, with the proper character added at the end. I did not find where the etconsole.log is first created...

    Is that "can't use \" blocking your ET-playing? You could open your etconfig.cfg and search for any "\"s in it. I can experiment with mine to find when such an error occurs...brb. I tried seta ` "toggleconsole/" and seta ` "/toggleconsole" and ET just 'repaired' the value by removing the "/" each from the etconfig.cfg each time. I tried seta \ "say \ is okay" and ET removed that line from the etconfig.cfg file. I tried it in binds with "say" and it worked okay and the \s were not removed by ET "say ^3Server is \^1FULL ^2and it will ^1DROP ^7AFKs, ^1NOT ^2put them to spec!" was allowed and not modified. I suggest making a copy of your etmain\profile\name\etconfig.cfg and searching it for any \s. Do the same for your Silent/// file AND any autoexec.cfg files that you might have. That "\" is very suggestive of a Windows\style\directory address. It is very rare for NTFS to mess up these days, but maybe another file got appended to your etconfig.cfg, or something. Some cvar might have an directory/address in it for some reason... I DID find something. Looking in my etconsole.log file, I searched for your "initc" and found No HUD specified, default HUD loaded CL_InitCGame: 3.15 seconds Com_TouchMemory: 0 msec execing profiles/ProfileName/etconfig.cfg server forcing cvar r_drawfoliage to 0 server forcing cvar cg_bloodFlash to 0 server forcing cvar r_wolffog to 0 server forcing cvar r_zfar to 0 server forcing cvar cl_wwwdownload to 1 server forcing cvar cl_allowdownload to 1 server forcing cvar cg_damagekick to 1 server forcing cvar r_softwareGL to 0 server forcing cvar pmove_fixed to 0 server forcing cvar snaps to 20 Your error statement is right where my ' exec etconfig.cfg ' appears, which may mean that your path has \s instead of /s in it. Check for that. I will change my file and double-check it... Ahhh, I cannot find where that "path to etconfig" can be set.
  13. @jack because the ocean slowed the flow of languages changes back and forth. The Canadians and Americans were much closer together and influenced each other's forms of English. That was before Radio, TV and the Internet, which can spread usages around faster. Here is an interesting video about some features that English lacks. Features English is missing - but most other languages have :

    That whole folder might be added when you first run ET and are asked for a name, etc. ET would create a default etconfig.cfg in that folder, etc.
  16. I have read of what is called "Herd Immunity", where if enough people in a group are immune to a disease, then it is much less likely to spread to others in that group. Some schoolchildren cannot be vaccinated for some diseases because they are already battling an illness where the treatments suppress their immune systems. Some vaccinations do not confer immunity to some people. There are vulnerable people in any group, even in this modern age of available prevention. I was born just after the Polio vaccine was developed. Parents no longer had to feel the "Summers of Dread" and the onset of Polio season. There are a few people still living in Iron Lungs to this day.

    Are you running ET "as admin"? I had avoided all of that on this computer by installing ET on my D:/ drive. On my prior computer, I had set both the ET.exe and the Shortcut to it to "run as admin". If you have ET installed in the "C:/program files" then its files are access-protected and one of the first things that ET does is to write to the etconfig.cfg with the ID of the "last valid renderer", or try to.
  18. These early DeepFakes are a lot of fun, but I foresee problems in the future when they are used for propaganda and to generate hatred around the world. +

  20. I have never seen a calf act like that! When I was young, we used bottles with nipples to give our calves milk. That reminds me of how cautious we had to be when feeding them. They would suck on anything that even vaguely resembled a teet. We had to keep our fingers, our shirt-tails and any long hair away from them! I had to warn my younger siblings to stay away from the fence and to not try to pet them. Their tongues were very rough, the better for grabbing grass when they were older.
