ETLegacy - Who plays from ETLegacy

Recommended Posts

I have a problem with ET legacy. every time I log on to connect to jay1 I can't get on. I mean it seizes up flashes some white stuff and I get kicked out. yes run as admin doesn't work. even restarting computer doesn't help. what in the hell is going on here?  I can connect at times but it's annoying after several attemps. sometimes it's successful at times it's futile no matter how many times I try.

]kemon:

Tilde characters are blocked in legacy to protect the user. I think that block has been loosened for 2.76.

 

Next update you should be able to use Legacy to join FA servers!

I copied ui_mp_x86.dll in my jaymod folder and it worked. The others were not required.

For me it's related to the video card driver not opening the openGL for the vm module's C++ frame work for full screen or none full screen even with vsync disabled I still got the flash like you described.

 

I worked around it by disabling nvidia's graphics software and services and running straight from the proprietary driver built in the card it self and when I disabled the drivers services it unlocked my systems on board graphics settings to edit the display within Windows 10 it self and it easily runs at 1680x1050 as it wouldn't before go over 1080p for other games so that was the main reason for the disabled drivers software plus to remove the annoyig nvidia updates that come out all the time unrelated to the old video card Im running.

 

But I still got the flash of death so I edited my shortcut to go to Jay1 and to execute a increase in sound and memory megs to get it to work it's not 100% effective more like 75% but it sometimes depending on what map is playing on the server it works like it supposed to.

 

This is the shortcuts targets destination and commands it uses for now.

 "C:\Program Files (x86)\Enemy Territory - Legacy\etl.exe" +set com_zonemegs 128 +set com_hunkmegs 768 +connect 8.9.4.227

 

I can try to explain the white flash it's related to ETL's exectute file trying to disconnect windows command window from the home or windows+r  key so you can't alternately open the program with a program at the same time it is I believe designed to eliminate some wallhacker programs that have ease of access on 2.55 and 2.60b and earlier dlls that were made for windows XP sp1 - sp3 netframework 2.0 and earlier. I think the only way they're really going to resolve this flash of death is to rebuild ETL with a newer system with the more uptodate netframeworks 4.0-4.5 and newer that is default in Windows 10 it self to run only on systems that support netframeworks 4.0-4.5 and up. 

 

That's just my 2cents it's not 100% accurate it is just my personal experience and what I think is going on.

I wanted to try Legacy again. I installed the new version, played a while and restarted to 2.6.
My cl_guid is EMPTY!

HELP
 
 
etkey is the same.
I started PB;
I added pb_cl_enable; cl_punkbuster "1" to my cfg and autoexec.cfg in etmain.
I copied etkey to AppData\Local\PunkBuster\ET\etmain but I had to create a folder etmain
When i start ET and type cl_punkbuster 1 to console, then I get a message that is "read only" and still is 0
 
and... 
it now really works and I see my GUID, but by default it is still "unknown"

From etlegacy.com :

So on NIX based systems game data are now stored in "$HOME/.etlegacy" path and on Windows in "ETLegacy" path of the users Documents folder (%userprofile%\Documents) per default.

 

Etkey goes in folder : documents/EtLegacy/etmain

Silent guid goes in folder : documents/ETLegacy/silent

 

etmain folder is created when you install ETL.

silent folder is created when you join a silent server with ETL.

On a side note ETLegacy wiki is quite useful :

Gengis, but it was good under Legacy. However, I launched the old version 2.6 and the GUID disappeared.
Now I see my GUID, but by default it is still "unknown".

It disappeared from ET 2,60b ?

Yes, like this: 

 

When I turned on PB, it's already I see my GUID, but by default it is still "unknown".

Despite many attempts, even on a fresh installation it is still the same problem.

The game does not save me this GUID and after reconnect is still default "unknown"

ETLegay is not compatible with PB.
