Post subject:  Desktop shortcut

I normally launch et through All Seeing Eye or Xfire. Sometimes however I use the the ET desktop shortcut to enter the game. I tried to figure a shortcut to place on my desktop for TCE. Couldn't figure which file to tap into after going in to my program/ET/TCE files. Any hints??

I think that TC:E puts an icon on labelled "tcetest" on your desktop automatically.

It probably would have had I downloaded it from here, however I dl'ed it through a game server, not realizing that it was such a big dl at first. But since most of the info came over ftp instead of the game server it really wasn't that long.

okay, look in the tcetest folder and see if you find any .exe files. that should be all you need to do.

if all else fails, back up the maps (it hurts having to download 20) uninstall et/tce and then do it again using one of the mirrors.

To make a shortcut for TC:E the lazy way (the way I do it...)

Copy your ET shortcut and rename (select and press F2 or Right Click then rename) then do a Right Click and then properties in the target box append:

+set fs_game tcetest

If you want you can then change the icon but the important part is the bit you have to append. This tells windows to start running the ET engine but then load the game with the folder name tcetest i.e TrueComabt:Elite.
