1. Go to etkey.org

2. Click on the button "Get an ETKEY"

This will download a fresh etkey.

3. Open the folder "C:\Program Files\Wolfenstein - Enemy Territory\etmain"

Put that etkey in there.

4. If you're using windows 7 you'll also have to put that etkey at this location.

"C:\Users\*username*\AppData\Local\PunkBuster\ET\etmain"

This isn't necessairy for all mods (f.e. not applyable at b4)

I also think that punkbuster-clientside HAS to be enabled for ET to grab the etkey - even if punkbuster isn't enabled on the server (like B4).

Check it with "/cl_punkbuster" in console. 0 means that it's disabled.

Enable it :
1. disconnect from the server
2. go to "play online" in the menu.
3. click "enable punkbuster"
4. type /reconnect in console :)



Note: be sure to run ET as administrator.

Note: be sure there's no extension behind etkey

I have tested this procedure myself on 2 computers and it worked fine.

Very good to have this nice and easy tutorial.

1th - backup you're key (mail it to yourself on a Gmail or Hotmail or any other online account)
2th - If you didn't listen to the 1th...read the manual Solewu made and then repeat the 1th again :D

Geek out ;)



p.s. maybe is it an idea to make a Bunker-vault. a place where we can safely store our key's ? (dunno if it's save)
