Howdy, I have been trying to play ET for about a week now. I usually start from all seeying eye. When I do it will load all the way to a server, then about 5 secs after start it will lock up. I hear 4 clicks then static, then a click. Then I have to restart. I have reloaded 3 times. Any clues?
It doesnt happen to be a Shrub Mod server does it? I have had many problems with Shrub servers crashing my ET specificly ones with custom maps. I have yet to figure out why. It might be one of those nice "features". You might also want to check the forums at splashdamage.com see if anyone is reporting it there.
i had the same problem all the time, i would just get into a game and it would lock up and i would get an et.exe error. so what i ended up doing was installing the 'ET Loader' which is a special .exe file for starting ET http://www.rtcwfiles.com/file.info?ID=19806
and after starting et with this new exe file everything has been working fantastic!! give it a try, you wont have any more worries while loading into a game!
