ET on Steam.

Postby Ryuzaki:] » Wed Apr 27, 2022 22:02

Hello, ET has been put on Steam and several new players will join ET, but the problem is that when I join the server it automatically leaves me from the server without an error message so new players will flee the server on the server ETc we have had more new players since when ET was on steam so I would like to know why we can't join the server on ET under steam.

Thx guys for the response ;)

If you have the Steam version, try opening console after failed attempt to join our servers. Even if there is no 'pop-up' error message, there might be something in the console.

Also you might want to open the console and check
Code: Select all
/version
The one we are using is 2.60b.

Yeah, I have the same issue. Here's the console log dump.
"version" is:"ET 2.60b win-x86 Jul 20 2021" default:"ET 2.60b win-x86 Jul 20 2021"

This one seems weird, the original 2.60b is from May 8 2006. So there probably are some changes in the executable, and thus the game won't work with certain mods, or something.

Can somebody fix the steam thing? Yesterday there were continually new people trying to connect to our server, but did't manage to get in with the steam download. Would be great to have some new players to give our server a boost, but it would be a shame if we let this opportunity pass by.

The problem is only on our server, they can connect to other (nq)servers.

Will somebody take a look at it please :)

If we know what's causing the issue we can look into fixing it..

I thought ryu and stephan were testing it yesterday by going on other servers with the steam ET. But apparently I was wrong :roll:

Fixed it seems.

Verified with:
- steam et - thanks ryu for the alt account
- original 2.60b
- etlegacy 2.77.1
- etlegacy 2.80.1

Tested by badbad, bigogr, allooma! Thank you all.

Stole FAs NQ .pk3s :P

Apparently they have a patched client version from $somewhere. With which it works. Weird. Need to debug further

Don't they use the ETLegacy version on their server by any chance? Or was this really about some pk3s, which seems strange?

FA does indeed use ET Legacy Server binaries.

But ET Legacy on the Server does not Matter at all it seems. Tested with both ET Legacy Server binaries and original.
Infact we are still running the original 2.60b files just with the dropped in NQ client.

Still have it on my TODO to investigate further. From my musings I assume that theres some subtle incompatibility with the original nq mod and steam client. Maybe it accesses PB which they have patched out vs etlegacy which mocks it(et legacy sends cl_punkbuster 1, the steam version does not)? I hate analyzing binaries :(

The relevant changes are:
-rwxr--r-- 1 ps1 ps1 2567132 May 1 23:15 enemy-territory/nq/nq_b_v1.2.9_6_patched.pk3 <- from FA contains clients+server
-rw-r--r-- 1 ps1 ps1 2567620 Aug 10 2010 enemy-territory/nq/nq_b_v1.2.9_6.pk3.disabled <- renamed from nq_b_v1.2.9_6.pk3
-rw-r--r-- 1 ps1 ps1 24702565 Aug 10 2010 enemy-territory/nq/nq_v1.2.9_3.pk3 <- original file, same as on FA
-rwxr--r-- 1 ps1 ps1 310958 May 1 23:15 enemy-territory/nq/zz_nq1.2.9_6p-0.7b.pk3 <- client only files from FA

to switch back one would have to rename "nq_b_v1.2.9_6.pk3.disabled" and "disable" "nq_b_v1.2.9_6_patched.pk3" and "zz_nq1.2.9_6p-0.7b.pk3".

Weird.. well at least you managed to fix it :good:

We can move any future binary analysis to AF if you want ;)
