Hello all:

Starting tonight, if you haven't connected to B1 between 1 Jan 2009 and today, then you lost your level on B1. The reason is that I wrote a little program that searches all GUIDs in that span of logs and only keeps the shrubbot entries for such matches. I hope cleaning the shrubbot will fix the problem with lag on B1 since the new pub. In addition, we have levels that haven't been touched since 2005, so cleaning couldn't hurt.

The shrubbot file used to be 1.1 MB, and now it's down to 230kB. I still haven't removed old bans either.

Anyway: If you connect and find that your normal level is missing, please post here with your normal name (that the level was under), and myself or another admin with server access will see what we can do about restoring your level (of course the old shrubbot was backed up).

*crosses fingers that this will fix lag*

Way back in the day when I played here a lot more frequently than I have done in the more recent past, I had gotten to lvl 6. Its been a while, but I'm trying to come back and play here more often. I would like to know if I'm elligible to get my levels back. If not, thats ok too, I'll be on here more often, and get them back the old fashioned way. smile.gif

Not sure what's going on... but my computer is not letting me play on any of the servers. I started getting messages about a version mismatch error... and one that says something about not being able to load one of the .pak files. I've had somebody that knows more about computers than me check it out. He's reinstalled everything... ET... all the mods... and punkbuster and I still can't get on. Today when I tried... I got a message that I was banned from the B-1 server. I don't know if that's right... and if it is... I'm not sure why. If someone could check into that and send me a message that would be great. I'm still able to play Balance... from the Bunker Community site... but I can't get into any of the servers. My friend is also planning to re-install my windows program since that might be part of the problem.

that prolly means you don't have an etkey (etkey is used to store your lvl's) try to reconnect again and it should be ok, altho you will have lost all your levels on every server but the important thing is hopefully that you can play again

I checked my ET main file and my key is there. I tried to get into the Bunker 1 server and I got the same message... it says (error) "You are banned from this server." Again... if someone could see if there is a problem or issue on the server end I would appreciate it. I will continue working at my end and as I mentioned before... we're going to re-install windows XP to get rid of any crap that may have collected over the last couple of years.

Thanks in advance...

Are you able to play ET on ANY server including NON- Bunker servers?

From your previous post it sounds like to me you didn't install the ET 2.60b for Windows PATCH hence the wrong version message.

ET 2.06b Patch

You have to replace ET.exe and ETDED.exe in your C:\Program Files\Wolfenstein - Enemy Territory folder with the ones provided in the Zip File you downloaded which is in the Win32 folder within the Zip file.

As far as being banned, i have no idea why you would get that message.

Forgive me everyone, but things have been a bit hectic lately.

Is there anyone that posted (on topic) in this thread that's still having problems?
