Unable to Log into Server - Need Help

Post by fatwa on Sat Jul 06, 2013 12:24 pm

I've had problems logging into anything but no quarter for a while, now I can't even log into it.  Running on a Mac 10.8.4 and I have gone through the etmain and deleted all the questionable files listed in the other threads.  It always hangs on the same file.  Very frustrating, can anyone help?  Here's a screen cap of the file that always hangs.

I will upload all the needed files on a different server and make it available for you. Do you want to connect to Beginner or No quarter?

Can I connect to both?  Been playing No Quarter because I couldn't get into Beginner.  Either is fine if I can only do one.  Thanks!

I downloaded all of the files and put them in my etmain folder and it still doesn't work.  Still hanging on the same file.  I've deleted that file and tried it and same problem.  I can get into other servers, not sure why I'm not compatible with the funboy servers...

It is also possible that you went to a different server that is using the same name as our ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~_09.pk3 file. These files get recycled by other clans who may alter them for their ET servers but not change the name. I have seen this happen many times. Try deleting the ~~~~~~~ files in your etmain folder.

I think there is a Mac-specific version of the ET patches (2.60 and 2.60b) that may help as well.

If this does not work, then save your etkey (in Wolfenstein - Enemy Territory/etmain) and re-install the game. Reinstalling takes five minutes and fixes many problems. Be sure to delete the leftover folders after you uninstall. Then reinstall and put your etkey back in the new etmain so you can keep your XP on our servers.

If none of this works you could run ET in a windows emulator on your Mac. ET is notoriously buggy on Macs. An emulator may run better than OS X.

none of this worked, looks like I will need a windows emulator.  Unfortunately I normally play while at my editing suite and there are no windows compatible computers there - looks like I need to find a new game Sad

You can also install virtualbox for Mac:

https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads

Then within virtualbox you can install ubuntu, and you can play ET on ubuntu from within OS X.

http://fearless-assassins.com/tutorials/article/243-how-to-install-et-on-a-64-bit-ubuntumint-distro/

All of this is free, only time and effort is required. You may or may not have enough power to run ubuntu in virtualbox depending on your system. If not you can try a lighter distro of linux like tinycore or pupply linux.

That way you should not have problems with the Apple chipset not supporting Windows.
