Post subject:  HELP!

Hi, i remember playing this game from back in the Quake 3 days, and it was the cream! I saw this recently for ET (I havent played in a long time) so i decided to give it a shot. I have the latest version of ET installed, and i downloaded the .49 TCE setup file from the internet, and installed it on my machine. So far so good, i then proceeded to load the game, and set it up and whatnot, but it seems that i cant join any servers, because they are all dem_ which apparently means they are .48 servers. I tried joining several, and whenever i do it A) changes my menu background and music (I remember the old one from Quake3 is on there, that is kick ass) and B) ruins my resolution, which i cannot fix. So whenever this happens, i have to uninstall the whole game and reinstall. End result for me: .49 does not work.

So i uninstalled .49 from my machine, then installed .46 and .48. I thought this would work, seeing as the servers are for .48. However, when i join a server it just keeps bloody telling me to download new pak files, which range from 10-60mb and download at snail speed, and once they finish downloading, it crashes!

HOW do i get this to work! Why arent there any servers up for .49? Do i have to install .46,.48 then .49 in a row to get it working? Someone help!
thanks, your help is appreciated.

dw i think i worked it out. I downloaded ET off fileplanet, which told me it was 2.6 when it was actually 2.55. I only just read about this problem and looked to see if that was it. Ill try updating somewhere and see how it goes.

Make sure you download all the right files:

WET 2.55, patch 2.60 (NOT 2.60b)
TCE 049 full


If you wish to, use an external browser, the internal browser is unreliable.

Yeh, it was the fileplanet thing... I downloaded 2.6 off there when it was infact 2.55. I think it might be a good idea to sticky this thread or another one that tells people that Fileplanet's 2.6 is wrong, because i had no idea and it took a while to find that out.

Lol. It doenst take a genius to figure it out, after installing the game you can press ~ and see what version it says it is. Someone remind me to write to FP 3 weeks from now regarding the WET installer. (Ive done it before with other stuff - IGN staff listens to customers)
