This is for all W:ET Players. - Patch your ET.

Question

I strongly suggest to patch your Enemy Territory game to 2.6b version.

 

The major reasons are:

 

1. You will never crash or crash less for message overflow or server flow reason which happens often with 2.55 client. Your client will crash less due to ctrl + alt bug.

 

2. If server is full you will be auto redirected to another server.

 

3. Minor optimizations in client engine for lower cpu usage. - IMP for LOW END CPU users.

 

4. "Unable to load an official pak file" now reports the pak filenames in the console.

Win32 and Linux sound cvars are now unified:

s_khz, s_bits, s_numchannels

s_khz is now a CVAR_LATCH.

Players can override unsafe cvars (e.g., from a crash) with com_ignorecrash 1

 

5. Anisotropic texture filtering is now supported in renderer.

Enable with r_ext_texture_filter_anisotropic 1 and use r_textureAnisotropy to set the filtering level.

cg_draw2D is no longer cheat protected.

 

6. Wounded freelook is now enabled (a la RTCW). It is also completely moved clientside so there is no lag.

 

7. win32 specific:

Client can clear the dedicated console with /clearviewlog

s_khz 44 now works.

 

8. Security fixes.

 

Their are still TONS of more fixes but the ones listed above are most important ones.

 

 

Now question would be how to patch?

1. Download this file:

http://fearless-assa...T_2.6_Patch.zip

 

Unzip the file and install it. Now you are on 2.6 patch.

 

2. Now download this file:

http://fearless-assa..._2.6b_Patch.zip

 

unzip it. You will see 2 files name ET.exe and ETDED.exe just copy pate those file in your wolfenstein installation folder.

 

Your operating system will ask you. Do you want to overwrite the file? Say YES.

 

Thats it, and you are on 2.6b. smile.gif Their is a difference between 2.6 and 2.6b. Don't get confused.

 

If you want to PLAY ET you need to use ET.exe and if you want to start your own server you need to use ETDED.exe

PATCH OK.. I'm playing on 2.6b with all my settings.. want to know how?

First I copied my old 2.55 folder (I put it in a zip file, with no compression FYI)..

Since I had 2 installations 2.55 and 2.6 and none of them in the default installation folder I delete them both..

 

I made a fresh install of the 2.55.. upgraded it to 2.6.. and patched it to 2.6b..

For the settings all I did was copy the backup into the new installed folder.. and for every file that already existed I said "Do not replace"..

after that made sure all the cfg were from the old folder.. and that the etkey file as the old one..

 

And voilá.. everything is the same.. don't even have to download maps again :P

how about ex? did u have te same as the options and the names or not?

cause i haven't reinstalled the game since 4 years but my win about 44 times and thats why the update cant find the et installed...

2.55 then 2.6 and then 2.6b

 

I think you stopped on 2.6 and hence not able to find much servers. Patch it all the way to 2.6b.
