Played this from 2003 to 2009 as my main game and it still rocks in 2013!
If you wanna join me sometime, it's your lucky day because I wrote you pro instructions:
Installing is made very easy nowadays. You no longer need to download separate patches nor manually update PunkBuster (ET's anticheat program). Everything is included finally in one installer. Download it here!Things you wanna do after install:
- On first run ET will ask your basic settings. There aren't many resolution options so if you don't find your screen's native resolution, don't worry at this point. Be sure to click "Enable PunkBuster".
- If you couldn't choose your screen's native resolution earlier, open console (§) and type your custom resolution like this:
Start game and new resolution is in use!
- Remove blood splatter in options (it just blocks your vision when you get shot). Also select dot ( . ) for crosshair and put the size to small. This will help you a lot to get headshots.Server I use to play at:
Himalia silEnT Server
You can connect to quickly by opening console and typing "/connect www.himalia.fi
"Good to know in game:
-Loadout screen is called Limbo menu and you open it with "L". Join team by clicking Axis' or Allies' flag.
-You can't Alt+Tab ET normally but by pressing Alt+Enter you can switch between fullscreen and windowed mode. For the best solution, check ET's directory, open directory called "minimizer" and run program called "etwc". It kinda mimics Alt-tabbing
Rest is pretty much self-explanatory.
Here's the offical guide
