TUTORIAL: How to fix the ET serverlist

Postby Jok3r » Sun Jan 22, 2012 8:52 pm

Ok as requested, ill make an 'official tutorial' about this.

So, as some of u have noticed,
the serverlist doesnt work in ET anymore.
Thats because the masterserver located in ID software has crashed.
It might take some time until they fix it,
so until then, we cant see the serverlist in ET by using the ID software's masterserver.

But luckily for us, there has been made a temporary masterserver.
So, here's a short tutorial how to use it.
The serverlist fix doesnt work with ET 2.55 version.




1. Download a .zip file from here,
and open it with any program u have. (WinRAR, Freezip, 7zip, etc.)

2. Go to ur Enemy Territory folder, copy the ET.exe, and paste it somewhere, so u can find it later.
(Thats because when the real masterserver gets fixed, u will have to put it back to ur Enemy Territory folder,
if u want to use the real masterserver again)


3. Extract the ET.exe in the .zip file u downloaded, to the Enemy Territory folder.
(When/if it asks do u want to overwrite the old ET.exe, choose yes, as u have always made a backup of the old ET.exe)

4. Now just start up ur ET, and u should see the serverlist again. ;)
(If u start up the ET from ur desktop icon, it may not work. To fix this, u must make a new desktop icon of the ET.exe u have just downloaded)




Hopefully this helped some1,
and if u have any questions, feel free to post here, or PM me.
;)

There is an easier way from Splash Damage forums:
Rudi's hosts service
It is (apparently) recommended over replacing ET.exe
