FAQ: How to install TrueCombat: Elite 0.49b (Windows only)
« on: July 31, 2009, 09:16:13 PM »
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 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

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

Just copy the ALL of the files inside of the \tcetest\ folder 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

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

Code: [Select]
/rate 25000
/cl_maxpackets 60
/snaps 40

Come play on our public objective server @ 8.9.9.53:27960

If you're running Windows Vista, go to your ET directory (e.g C:\Program Files\Wolfenstein - Enemy Territory), right-click on ET.exe and go to properties.
Then go to Compatibility, and tick "run this program as an administrator".

If that doesn't work, or your not running Vista, then the file is corrupt, try replacing it.

I also suggest Windows XP SP2 Mode too, and you don't need to go to the directory, just need to right click> properties on your game shortcut. At least that's how I do it.
