Your game is too slow? Quick guide to fix video lag!

Postby DisColow » Sat Jan 09, 2021 4:16 pm

Hi everyone!

I believe you all know me so I won't waste your time with presentations.

This quick video guide is meant for my fellow Enemy Territory players who are having issues running the game.
Said issues can be :
- FPS drops
- Micro freezes

The solution I'm giving you might not work with your machine, but it did for me, so I'm thinking it could help others.

It's very simple and straightforward : you don't need to know anything about computers to complete this tutorial.

[I assume you are running Windows]

- First, hit the "Windows" key on your Keyboard.
- Start typing "Legacy" so that the it appears as a "Top result".
- Right click on "ET Legacy" and click on the second menu item.
- Now, you should be inside a folder, this is what we want.
- Right click on the shortcut called "Et legacy" and click on the second menu item.
- Copy the shortcut called "Et Legacy" and paste it in the same folder (it should duplicate it and add "- Copy" at the end of the filename)
- Right-click on the newly created file
- Click on the properties item
- On the first tab (the one showing by default), locate the "Target" parameter
- Click inside the paramter value.
- Remove every caracter located after the ending
Code: Select all
"

- After the ending quote, add a whitespace and type or paste the following
Code: Select all
+set cl_renderer opengl2 +connect "et.etclan.net"


If you paid attention to what you pasted, you can see it does two things : changes the default renderer AND auto connects to "NoDownload".
If you don't want the autoconnect feature, then just remove
Code: Select all
+connect "et.etclan.net"
from the "Target" parameter we've just updated.

- Now, click OK on the property window
- Left click on the shortcut and rename it to the name of your choice (like "ET Legacy - Renderer 2")
- You can launch it now by double-clicking and see if it works better

If this change was a success, then you can launch this shortcut by looking for it in the "Windows menu". --> Hit the "Windows" key on your keyboard, then start type "Legacy" and the shortcut will appear.

Have fun!
