Common Problems - Enemy Territory

Recommended Posts

· How to fix Hunk_AllocateTempMemory errors?


For instance; Hunk_AllocateTempMemory: failed on 3528308


Some (custom) maps need more memory than ET is configured to handle, so ET will close down and gives you this error message.


How to fix it?

Go to the main menu of ET (if you are ingame) or start up ET. Bring down the console and enter /com_hunkmegs 128. Reconnect and the problem should be fixed.


· How to fix OpenGL errors?


Your computer doesn’t have OpenGL compatible drivers (for your graphics card) installed. This normally occurs when the standard windows drivers are used.


How to fix it?

Go to the website of your Graphics Card manufacturer and download the newest drivers for your videocard.

ATI owners - http://www.ati.com/support/driver.html

Nvidia owners - http://www.nvidia.co...aspx?lang=en-us


This error can also occur if you have a wrong video mode selected for your system (monitor). For instance a too high resolution of 1600x1024 may not work depending on your monitor and/or graphics card.


· Fixing Bug: awaiting challange / gamestate


Normally you get a loading screen where you see: awaiting challenge and after that the awaiting gamestate line, but sometimes you get this message for more than 10 minutes (awaiting gamestate xxx ; awaiting challenge xxx).


A solution that may fix the problem;

Go to the directory; C:/Windows/System32/drivers/etc (depending on which drive you installed Windows) In the directory ‘etc’ you will find a file called; ‘hosts’. Open the file and choose wordpad or another text editor to open the file with. Now add a new line and type; etguidauth.evenbalance.com Save the file after this.


Now go to the directory; C:/Program Files/Wolfenstein - Enemy Territory/pb (depending on where you installed Enemy Territory) In that folder delete the file; ‘pbns.dat’, and run the program; ‘pbweb.exe’. Wait while PB updates itself (this may take a while) and you are done.
