Due to current reason - simple ETkey backup tutorial

preface: I know most of you will know this, but if it can help only one member the tutorial was worth! :D


Hello mates,

in this little tutorial I will show you how to find you ETkey and make a backup of it/restore ETKey with backup.
If you dont have any external save device, no problem :)

BACKUP:
First of all, why should you backup your ETKey?

- If you buy a new pc for example and install wolfenstein on it, you will have a completly new profile, that means you can not reactivate your old again (unless you saved your ETKey ;) )

- If you experiment on your system, files, folders, windows or whatever, it's not unlikely, that you delete this ETKey accidentally!

So to avoid the loss of you XP and your admin level you should make a backup of this key!

Where to find the key?
If you already created one you should usually find it in:
Windows 32 bit: C:\Program Files\Wolfenstein - Enemy Territory\etmain\
Windows 64 bit: C:\Program Files (x86)\Wolfenstein - Enemy Territory\etmain\
Mac OS X: /Users/username/Library/Application Support/Wolfenstein ET/etmain/

OR:

User->AppData->Local->Punkbuster->ET->etmain

If you used the custom punkbuster installer from this site http://etkey.org/pages/punkbuster/auto---install-for-windows-by-harlekin.php it would be the most easy solution to download the ETKey finder... you get it from here http://www.eurobunker-arena.com/downloads/Everything-1.2.1.371.zip

After downloaded, just open it up and type in 'Etkey', now copy this file.


To backup the file there are different options, you can:
-save it on a storage medium (USB, external...)
-send it to yourself via E-Mail
-upload it on Trackbase (Thats my favorite way.. you wont need any external devices for that)

A how-to Trackbase is in the box bellow xd


SHOW |
1. Go to http://et.trackbase.net/
2. If you already have an account login, if not register :P Registration is worth, because its a great site for stats and player information!
3. click on 'ETKeymanagment'

RESTORE:

To restore your etkey, just paste it to: User->AppData->Local->Punkbuster->ET->etmain (create the folder if it not exists)

THATS THE DEAL xd

If I accidentally forgot something or made a mistake (im just a human too xd) dont hesitate to correct me!! :P


Hope you enjoyed it and I also hope noone will ever lose their xp again xd

Greetings Glory :D
