This guide is only for Windows users only...I figured that if you’re a Linux user, you'd have enough knowledge on how to install the game. Head on to the downloads page to get the files you need.

Anyways just read the steps, their pretty much self-explanatory...just skip the first step in Guide Part 1 if you have the latest version of Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory already installed on your computer.

[][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][]

Guide Part 1

The first needed is the latest version of Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory 2.60b (Wolfenstein-ET-2.60b.exe) which can be downloaded at:
Wolfenstein-ET-2.60b.exe

The second file needed is TrueCombat:Elite 0.49 (setup_v049_0922.exe) which can be downloaded at:
setup_v049_0922.exe (Mirror 1)
setup_v049_0922.exe (Mirror 2)

The final file you need to do is to apply the TrueCombat:Elite 0.49b patch (tce049b_all_os_fixed.zip) which can be downloaded at:
tce049b_all_os_fixed.zip (Mirror 1)
tce049b_all_os_fixed.zip (Mirror 2)

Just copy the ALL of the files inside of the \tcetest\ folder in this .zip patch to the inside of your \tcetest\ folder located in C:\Program Files\Wolfenstein - Enemy Territory\tcetest\ [AND YES REPLACE ALL EXISTING FILES]

[][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][]

Guide Part 2

To avoid problems when first installing TC:E 0.49b, it's best to update your PunkBuster client to the latest version first. You can do that via program pbsetup pbsetup.exe which can be downloaded at:
pbsetup.exe

After updating your PunkBuster, right click on your tcetest.exe icon and change the Target: to the following
Code:
"C:\Program Files\Wolfenstein - Enemy Territory\ET.exe" +set fs_game tcetest +set com_hunkMegs 256 +set com_zoneMegs 64 +set com_soundMegs 64


Changing the Target of your tcetest.exe prevents the COM_HUNKMEGERROR messages when loading into certain maps such as obj_snow.

Next, load up your game and change some of the settings via console (the ` button on your keyboard). Once console is open type in word for word:

recommended for US players playing on American servers

Code:
/rate 25000
/cl_maxpackets 60
/snaps 40


Come play - list of popular servers

nice guide, however a guide for linux would be nice imo :X
on Ubuntu 9.10 i have tried downloading the files but i can't open them with "sh" and gzip does not recognize them either so i was like "oh okay, i will just go to playdeb"
this got me a little bit farther, i now have a working copy of ET
next i try installing TC:E from playdeb as well, but it complains
"Can not install 'true-combat-elite' (E:Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.)"
so next i looked around the forums and found a plain old .run of tc:e i downloaded it it and tried
Code:
sudo sh true.combat.elite_0.49-english.run

but it returns the error:
Code:
ERROR!
You need Return to Castle Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory version 2.60!

Could not find Return to Castle Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory


but i do have a perfectly fine and working copy of ET 2.60 on here, so I don't really know what to do at this point
any help would be greatly appreciated!

Try

http://www.truecombatelite.com/files/TrueCombatElite_v049_Linux.run.gz

if that gives same error about broken packages, try

http://www.downloads.clan-sef.org/tcetest/installer/true.combat.elite_0.49b-english-4.run (this is the same file I use to install for my old Linux servers, other versions were broken)

------

Try posting in the Linux section of the forums and ask someone who uses Ubuntu to help you out if it still doesn't work.
