remove the etkey that is in your etmain then copy your old etkey in ?

now you might have 2 etkey's in etmain, that could result in that he still is loading the new etkey instead of your old one.

WinXP: C:\Program Files\Wolfenstein - Enemy Territory\etmain\

Vista/Win7 64bit: C:\Program Files (x86)\Wolfenstein - Enemy Territory\etmain\

Vista/Win7 32bit: C:\Program Files\Wolfenstein - Enemy Territory\etmain\

Mac OS X: /Users/username/Library/Application Support/Wolfenstein ET/etmain/

Linux (*): /home/username/.etwolf/etmain/

*Based on Ubuntu setup.

 

or

Windows XP Place the downloaded etkey file in your etmain folder

Windows Vista * Place the etkey in User->AppData->Local->Punkbuster->ET->etmain (create the folder if it not exists)

Windows 7 * Place the etkey in User->AppData->Local->Punkbuster->ET->etmain (create the folder if it not exists) *

make sure punkbuster is installed properly, i.e. pb services in place etc.etc.

 

Try to see after you open et if there is a message about pnkbstra and b being loaded.

 

I can't check the exact message right now, because I'm not on Windows.

If your positive it's the correct key, go to the lobby and enable punkbuster and then play. For some people doing it through the lobby works better.

did you read my post? I don't think the problem lies in your etkey (it wouldn't make sense since you saved it from before), imho punkbuster is not installed correctly and/or it doesn't work properly, or it's not enabled.

 

- check if you have pb services running

- check if you get this message once you start et (open the console, some values might differ in your pc):

PunkBuster Client: PunkBuster Client (v2.254 | A0) Enabled
PunkBuster Client: Game Version [ET 2.60b win-x86 May 8 2006]
PunkBuster Client: Not Connected to a Server

PunkBuster Client: PB Services socket initialized
PunkBuster Client: PnkBstrA successfully loaded PnkBstrB
PunkBuster Client: PnkBstrB service installed and started successfully

]\pb_ver
PunkBuster Client: PunkBuster Client (v2.254 | A0) Enabled

]\cl_punkbuster
"cl_punkbuster" is:"1" default:"0"

Imo , go to etkey.org , use the full setup ( only way to install pb I know now) and replace installed etkey by yours.

 

PS: the setup installs an etkey , bacup your etkey so it doesn't get overwrited.

Download this: PBSVC.exe

http://www.evenbalance.com/downloads/pbsvc/pbsvc.exe

Run the program to install PB services on Windows.

Pbsvc no more includes a ET installation If I remember right.

Etkey.org setup is the best solution to have a updated working pb

I can play on Pb servers even tough my key was generated by etkey.org which was said to be impossible.
