Sudden problem with ET

Postby Khatarnok » Sun Apr 29, 2018 6:39 pm

hey guys

so today i went to play ET but everytime i click play online i instantly get put in one specific server called "dRi elite noobs no bots" the message i get is "redirection advised" and i can either connect to that server or cancel and go back to menu. I have tried different profiles like nq and jaymod and still have the same problem. I asked the guys in dRi server and they are saying its a virus but ive ran a virus check on my pc and found nothing. What do you guys suggest?

There's 2 things :

Or you downloaded one .pk3 from Dri
Or they tried to hack something to get their server more popular

First you have to check about useless .pk3 files in your etmain folder (basically the files starting by ~~~~~~). If you find some of them, you can delete them without problem.
Secondly, you can try to connect via the console : Launch the game, open the console and do /connect et.etclan.net (in this way you by-pass the "play online" part)
Last thing to do, you can also do a fresh install. In this case, go in the official website (www.splashdamage.com) and reinstall the game. But be carefull, you have to save your etkey (in the etmain folder) to keep your xp and level, but also your configs if you created some.

Hope it will help you.

Let us know and see you back in ND :P

I checked my etmain folder but i didnt have any useless pk3 files, it could just be a hack on their part however from now on i will have to connect via the console.
Thanks for the help :))

My solution is to have direct shortcuts to servers on desktop for clicking,

"D:\Program Files\Enemy Territory\ET.exe" +connect "62.210.115.183:27960" +set r_mode 8

That's what is in my "target" field of ND icon properties in Windows 7.

Another solution would be to download the ETernal Clan's menu here

The best way to connect quickly on the server that you want. :)

Hmm, I saw this in Trackbase server listing:

"Server information for: =DRi=Elite NooBs NoBots » Rating and/or scanning is disabled on this server because: Server & clan are misbehaving. Scanning & Rating disabled."

"The ranking system is disabled for this server (The ranking for this server is disabled because of usage of an own anti-cheat tool). Read more...
Server fakes data >>> -999 reputation points"
