Game tweaks

Fixing PunkBuster issues

A common PunkBuster issue under Windows 7 or Vista is getting kicked for "RESTRICTION: Inadequate O/S Privileges". This occurs because PunkBuster needs Administrator permission to run properly on those Windows versions. The solution to this is to configure Enemy Territory to run as administrator[2][3].

Custom screen resolution

As an aging game, Enemy Territory natively supports only 4:3 resolutions. It is however possible to specify a custom resolution, by setting r_customwidth (the width you want), r_customheight (the height) and r_mode to -1 (so that the game will use the custom width and height). This can be done either in through the console (open the console using [~] and type /set [setting] [value]) or by directly editing autoexec.cfg located in the etmain folder)[4]. For instance:

seta r_customwidth "1440"
seta r_customheight "900"
seta r_mode "-1" unsafe

Mods

Not many servers run the original, unmodded game. The most commonly used mods are ETpro, Jaymod, ETpub and No Quarter[5]. The main total conversion of WET is TrueCombat:Elite.

ETPro

ETPro is a close-source mod specifically targeted at competition play. It is currently by far the most used mod (1800/3897 servers[5]). Its development stopped in mid-2006 (the latest version was released on 2006-09-18).

Jaymod

Jaymod is a close-source mod. It adds Molotov Cocktail weapon and other fun oriented gameplay. It's currently the second most used mod (590/3897 servers[5]). Its development seems to have halted during 2008 or earlier[6]. The latest stable version is 2.0.6 released on 10 April 2007[7], the latest beta version is 2.1.7 released on 4 September 2007[7]. A nightly version of Jaymod 2.1.8 has been released, the last one being the 25/01/2008 version. It could be find there : Wolfmap.de Jaymod 2.1.8 (Beta) download.

ETPub

ETPub is an open-source mod, originally targeted at giving better server-side configuration options. It's currently the third most used mod (475/3897 servers[5]), although it's development stopped in summer 2007, when the source code repository (http://www.linespeed.net/projects/etpub/) went down. The latest stable release is version 0.8.1, released on 9 August 2007[8], but various semi-official nightlies and releases are still being posted on their forums[9].


No Quarter

No Quarter is an open-source mod, targeted at fun gameplay with many weapon additions (added bazooka, "venom", which is an imaginary hand weapon looking like a heavy MG...) and fun improvements (camera on rockets and mortar shells...). It was originally close source, and became open source in September 2007 when development slowed down[10]. It's currently the fourth most used mod (407/3897 servers[5]). The latest stable release is version 1.2.5, released on 25 August 2009[11].

TrueCombat:Elite

TrueCombat:Elite is a close-source total conversion. It takes place in the modern world and focus on bringing a realistic gameplay. Although officially still in development, no updates have been made since 2007-01-02, when the current 0.49b version was released[12], and most download servers are down. 182 servers currently run this mod[5].
