It is however noted that to run ETF without a glitch, we reccommend a minimum of: OS: MS-Windows 98/2000/XP or GNU/Linux CPU: 900mhz x86 RAM: 256MB In addition to those of ET itself. 1.2 - Windows Install ETF comes packaged as an executable installer. Once downloaded, run the file. You will have to wait for a few seconds for the downloader to validate itself, before you are presented with the setup wizard. After you are presented with this screen, you are taken step by step through the install process. NB: Remember, the destination folder when choosing your install location should ALWAYS be that of your ET install! Once the install has completed, we reccommend you run the auto updater to make sure your installation is up to date. After this, you can start playing right away by double clicking the link on the desktop. 1.3 - *nix Install For the *nix installer, it is downloaded as a self-extracting .run file. Most browsers will not set the executable flag on this automatically. If the file will not execute, run 'chmod o+x etf10.x86.run'. After that, it can be started using './etf10.x86.run'. The destination folder for the install should be your ET path. The installer can automatically create a script to run ETF and also add a launcher to KDE or GNOME start menus. 2) QUICK START GUIDE --------------------------------- 2.1 - Running ETF To run ETF, either use the shortcut on your desktop (windows) or launch ET with following command line arguments: "...\Wolfenstein - Enemy Territory\ET.exe" +set fs_game etf If you are using linux, simply type etf in a terminal, or use the launcher in the KDE/GNOME menus. If you did not give the installer permission to make these, then run the et as usual with the following command line argument: '+set fs_game etf' 2.2 - Connecting to Servers To play ETF, you need to connect to a server. To do this, from the main menu select 'Play Online' from 'Play'. This will bring up the server browser from where you can select a server. Double clicking a server in the list will connect you. If you already know the server IP and port, you can quickly connect to a server by pressing '`' to bring down the console, and then typing in: \connect <ip>:<port> substituting <ip> and <port> with real values. 2.3 - Creating a local Server To start a local server, select 'Start a Game' form the 'Play' menu. You will be presented with a window where you can select your map, and set any settings . Clicking 'Start' will start your server. If you give out your IP to friends, they should be able to connect to you as long as your router/firewall settings are correct. For reference, the default port it 27960. 2.4 - Using BOTs All bot console commands a prefixed with bot. For example: /bot help This will print out a list of all the commands and short descriptions for them. Most are self explanatory. The only ones you really need to be concerned about are these /bot addbot name team# class# or /bot kickbot name If you need any more help, post in the etfgame.com forums! 3) TROUBLESHOOTING --------------------------------- 3.1 - Known Issues Unfortunately, this release does not have BOT support under linux. There is also no auto updater for linux. 3.2 - Quick Q & A Q. What is ETF? A.

FIX: To resolve this issue, download and install CATALYST 4.12 display drivers or higher. ISSUE: If you have no sound in ETF using Linux, and you see an error about being unable to mmap /dev/dsp in the console, the following commands may help: POSSIBLE FIX: echo "et.x86 0 0 direct" > /proc/asound/card0/pcm0p/oss echo "et.x86 0 0 disable" > /proc/asound/card0/pcm0c/oss 4) DETAILED SUBJECTS --------------------------------- 4.1 - Setting up a Dedicated Server On Linux: We recommend the following as being a sample shellscript for running a server: #!/bin/sh while true; do <your path to et>/etded +set sv_pure 1 +set net_ip <your ip> +set net_port 27960 +set fs_game etf +set com_hunkmegs 64 +exec etf_server.cfg done On Windows: Run et.exe with the following arguments: <your path to et>/et.exe +set dedicated 2 +set sv_pure 1 +set net_ip <your ip> +set net_port 27960 +set fs_game etf +set com_hunkmegs 64 +exec etf_server.cfg 4.2 - Creating Videos There is an excellent tutorial for making quake 3 videos at: http://www.own-age.com/forum/thread.aspx?id=3982&page=1 Which can be used for ETF without any problems. 4.3 - Custom HUDs There is a dedicated forum for custom HUDs on the official forum, which can be found at: http://forums.etfgame.com/forumdisplay.php?f=14 4.4 - '$ Strings' ETF allows players to communicate information via comms using the following special '$ strings'. $h - Speaker's Health $a - Speaker's Armor $l - Speaker's Current Location $d - Speaker's Location of Last Death $t - Speaker's Team (Red, Blue, Yellow, or Green, in white text) $c - Speaker's Team Color ("Red Team" etc. in colored text) $g - Speaker's Disguise status (really only valid for agents) $s - Speaker's Current Class $n - Speaker's Name $r - Reader's Name For example, typing '$n is a $s' in team chat will broadcast: <your nickname> is a <your class> to your team. NOTE: If you are familiar with Q3F $ strings, you will notice there is no longer any distinction between upper and lower case letters. 5) OTHER SOURCES OF INFORMATION --------------------------------- 5.1 - Websites Official ETF Website: http://www.etfgame.com The official ETF reference, including latest news/downloads, discussion forums , other documentation and guides. 5.2 - IRC Official IRC rooms for ETF can be found on irc.gamesurge.net and irc.quakenet.org at #etfgame. 5.3 - Community ETF-Center: http://www.etf-center.com/ PlanetETF: http://www.planetetf.com/ ETF University: http://fu.etf-center.com/ Railbait: http://www.railbait.com/ TheCatacombs: http://www.thecatacombs.net/ Planetwolfenstein.de: http://www.planetwolfenstein.de/ Planetwolfenstein.com: http://www.planetwolfenstein.com/ EnemyTerritory.at: http://www.enemyterritory.at/ RTCW.co.uk: http://www.rtcw.co.uk/ Frag Happy: http://www.fraghappy.com/ Frag Emporium: http://www.fragemporium.net/ 5.4 - Leagues/Ladders Stronger Than All: http://etf.sta-league.org/ TeamWarfare: http://www.teamwarfare.com/ 6) CREDITS --------------------------------- Project Lead: LaVaGoD Project Supervisor & Level Designer: 5anny Coder: CaNaBiS Coder: Slothy Bots: DrEvil Lead Artist: SystemKrash Artist: Steady Artist: Tabun Lead Level Design: Ildon Level Design: Zombie Level Design: b5k Level Design: wils Level Design: Jedis Level Design/Artist: VilePickle Lead QA/Gameplay: Ghetto QA: Hitman Hud Tech/QA: Shuriken Public Relations: n2y Public Relations: Axee Resources/Distribution: Noth Web Master: Python Documentation: Domipheus Contributions: Code: Keeger Code: RR2D02 Art: Fussel Art: Ryan Vandermark Art: Shdw Art: ZBR Art: sanna Level Design: Leon Sound: Dallas Audio Group Sound: Scott Cairns Super Idler: Hannibal Special Thanks: Q3F Development Team Splashdamage Ltd.
