Can't run ET

Question

Hello.

 

So, I bought a new notebook today (too lazy to type specs in here, just type toshiba c600-1cn in google). I installed ET, and then problems started.

Everytime I try to run it it shows grey screen and a message 'ET.exe stopped working', Oh, it's windows 7 64-bit. i think I tried everything. i used Medic's tutorial, didn't help. Chuck sent me his pb folder, still nothing. Call of Duty works fine, i just can't run ET ;x

 

Any ideas how to fix it?

Why install when you can copy, simply copy your current install from old and move to the new comp. Copy the entire W:ET folder. Crete shortcut from that folder run as admin, and if you are still having problems, then maybe we can do some remote support and fix it for you.

You wrote you have no default.cfg in your etmain. Maybe you could try to open pak0.pk3 with WinRAR/7-Zip and unpack default.cfg file from there. It sounds so obvious, but who knows if it can help or not :)

Theoretically, the problem looks so obvious that I cannot believe it wasn't solved yet, but I don't even know if it means on Windows 7 what it should mean on Windows XP. Theoretically, it occurs when you run ET.exe file which is not in your ET installation folder, practically, nobody knows the reason of the problem :D. I'm wondering why errors don't tell what to do to fix them - perfect error should tell you how to solve it ;)

It wouldn't work anyway since the pak pk3's all are in etmain anyway.

you dont need a file called default.cfg you need the autoexec.cfg and the C:\...\etmain\profiles\ETUI\etconfig.cfg (should be in each mod \etmain, \jaymod, ...).

looks like you have an error in your aotoexec, fix it or

 

my suggesttion:

 

delete all your et files on your new pc/laptop download ET ultimate instaler, and try it again.

 

Instaler maybe that works for you.

 

i also run it under win7 64 bit without any problems.

trying to make my et giving the same error on my win 64 bit

 

The only way I get this error is by renaming (or deleting) the etmain map so I don't understand how you get this error when you got the full installation

 

ET 2.60b win-x86 May  8 2006
----- FS_Startup -----
Current search path:
J:\Program Files (x86)\Wolfenstein - Enemy Territory/etmain

----------------------
0 files in pk3 files
----- CL_Shutdown -----
-----------------------
Couldn't load default.cfg - I am missing essential files - verify your installation?

 

 

 

I'm just wondering why you putted it in system32

 

Tried it to and it works but why (just curious)

But, .55 can not run on Windows 7, only .6b will work. Correct me if i'm wrong.
