TUTORIAL: Downgrading ET in 3 steps

Postby Jok3r » Wed Jul 06, 2011 9:00 pm

Ok so i saw many ppl asking the same question on forums.
"How can i downgrade my ET to 2.55?"
And i didnt see any kind of a tutorial etc.....about it.
So well...
...I'll try to explain it.


So as you propably know, there has been a minor change in our servers.
We have installed a 2.55+ patch to our servers.
That means people using the 2.55 version of Enemy Territory can play in our servers & see them in the serverlist.
But that means people using 2.60 can still play in our servers, but cant see them in the serverlist.
(Click here for a topic about that)




So if you dont want to connect using the IP of our servers,
and want to see the servers in the serverlist,
you need to downgrade your ET from 2.60 to 2.55
But thats easier than it sounds.

Just follow these 3 steps,
and you will be using 2.55 in no time.

  1. First you need to download the 2.55 patch. Just go here, and download the file.
  2. Now you need to find the "Wolfenstein - Enemy Territory" folder. (Its usually in C:\Program Files\)
    When you have found it, move "ET.exe" (the file you just downloaded) to the ET folder.
  3. And then just click "ET.exe" in the Enemy Territory folder, and there you go.

(Also you might want to make a new deskop icon of the new "ET.exe")

Hopefully this helped.
If you have any questions about this,
just post here.

good tutorial, easy to understand.. :) but say that u need to extract or smth the ET.exe(that u just downloaded) to ...........

Also if u dont want to lose 2.60 compeletly, just install another ET that is 2.55 .

Also, Jok3r add this example where u can find ur ET folder, in my case its:
mycomputer/C:/Program Files/Wolfenstain Enemy Territory/

Thx :))

U dont need to extract anything here.
;)

And if u want to keep the 2.60 version,
just copy the old "ET.exe" from the Enemy territory folder,
and make a new folder for that.
And if u want to play 2.60 again, just move that to the ET folder.
(remember to make a backup of the 2.55 ET.exe too xd)
