ET Hangs At Startup

Question

OK, this is odd. First, I haven;t changed anything with my computer, which is more than adequate to run ET. No new Video drivers installed  or anything like that either.

 

Started suddenly a few days ago, I always run ET As Administrator, but when I Start the game, it loads ,the game window begins to open and freezes, just showing a gray box, which I have to close with Task Manager. If I uninstall the game completely, clean all Wolfenstein and PB entries out of the registry and reinstall, it works great, a few times, then it happens again.....

 

WTH???

 

Any ideas here?

Before connecting to server, check :

 

- Options/game/download

 

Check for updates on start up : YES

Get missing files from server : YES

Use HTTP/FTP downloads : YES

Thing is, I can't connect to server because the game never actually starts. It just freezes on that grey screen. But I did download the version from splash damage last night and install that and it started right up, but no matter which version I install, it starts right up the first time so I'll see how it goes today and the next few days.

Did you try delete etconfig in profile folder?

Never thought of that, but if it happens again I'll give it a try. Thanks

You have loaded your config or you have an autoexec file at etmain after you have loaded the game from a fresh install?

It can be your config causing problems.

I always exec my cfg after I join the server

Try first PK. cleaner http://fearless-assassins.com/files/file/374-enemy-territory-auto-pk3-cleaner/

Then if that not work try download et from our site http://fearless-assassins.com/files/file/774-enemy-territory-full-version/

Are you saving a logfile to etmain?  That can tell you where it freezes in the startup routine.  ET should write what it is doing next before it actually does it.  My etPro locks when connecting to SW1 and this technique has given me a clue.

 

 

The spoiler has my etconsole.log where I just start ET and then closed it without joining a server.

 

 

 

(* these lines are added comments and don't appear in a normal etconsole.log file *)

 

(* etconsole.log saved to etmain via  seta logfile "1"  in etconfig.cfg in etmain\profiles\yourProfileName\ *)
 
(* Started ET, did not join a server and quit immediately *)

How do you get that? I'm going to do that when I get home from work tonight

 

Add seta logfile "1" in the etconfig.cfg in your etmain\profiles\yourProfileName\   I would search the file for "logfile" first, to make sure that there is not a seta logfile "0" after your new entry, which would turn off the cvar again!   :)

 

You can't start ET, so you can't do this the "normal way".   :D

 

Every time that you start ET, it will create a new etconsole.log file in your etmain folder.  It "deletes" the last version of the file and starts new one.  Everything that appears in the console will be saved to that file, including all the carats in names, such as "^4d^5a^4n^5g^4e^5r".  You can't open the file while ET is running, but you can copy and paste it and look at it as "etconsole - Copy.log".  (in windows).

 

If your ET-startup fails, then the etconsole.log should end where ET is trying to load something or do something.  You may want to save copies of the file after each time that you try to run ET, as that file will be re-written the next time you start ET.

 

I included a copy of my normal startup in that spoiler, just in case your etconsole.log just ends with a line like

 

Loading

 

and that is all :(

I wanted to give it time to make sure it worked, but I completely removed ET from my computer, deleted all the Registry Keys for "wolfenstein" and "punkbuster",  d/l'd the version from Splashdamage, set my screen to 1080 x 960 and have had no problems since.

Based on logs you provided et seems to crash and tries to make window itself. Check if you have in any etconfig (those in etmain and profiles) at the end of r_mode "value" unsafe .

Oh right never use higher value then your monitor can support in r_customwidth r_customheight because it'll crash your game right away, sometimes can result in grey box

 

If you have grey window it means that the system has trouble initializing or rendering your game which can happen by forcing some setting in your graphics card.

The driver update might have reseted game profiles. Check if you have in nvidia panel (for et) options use application settings or something like that.

 

You might want try et legacy because it's using different render method and has support for newer graphic cards.  But that's a last resort :P

It doesn't matter now. I tried to reboot and somehow lost my MBR. Probably when I was trying to restore GRUB for my Linux Partition. Tried for hours to restore (USB Boot recovery drive was useless!! Grrrr) and had to reformat my C: Drive. The only thing I've lost was 2 weeks worth of XP in my ET Key, since I hadn't backed it up in that long. Gonna be reinstalling programs all morning now :(
