I appreciate you somewhat correcting him Solewu, but at least the guy is thanking me.
Pretty much in the links I have shared, it is showing a possible future for ET.The game will be played in a browser (like Quake Live) so no more patching. It probably won't happen anytime soon but something to think of w/ the future of our beloved game. :)

All is forgiven Bean :) just a simple misunderstanding. Now lets hope for our beloved ET, that we could have a bright future :)

Well, I'm interested to see if it works out, but honestly, I think playing FPS in a browser is just a bad idea. I know that Quake Live seems to work, but come one, I use my browser to read my emails and the forum, and Facebook, and not to play games... a Browser game will never be as stable and polished as a game executable.

And running a browser already uses much resources, plus all the plugins to, etc.

This is why I tried QuakeLive, and then let it alone, because playing an FPS in a browser is just not working for me. It's like, I don't know... using a combine harvester as a car in the city... sure, sure, it works but, come on...

What I would really like to see instead, is a new Wolf ET, written probably on the Source engine, or something like that.


But thanks for posting. We will see how it ends up.

Take a "Gander" ! ? -
Is this English Colloquilalism really used in America -
If not where on Earth did you pick up the term "Gander" from :-)
Next thing you'll be asking us to take a Butcher's at it :-)
( Cockney Rhyming slang - Butcher's Hook = Look )
At least your trying to talk "Proper" English :-)

I'm from the south and I hear people use the word Gander quite often.
Its mostly older people though. My grandpa used to use that word all the time. Also used the word yonder.
" just go straight towards that sign over yonder"

xD I just used a word and I see everyone's response. To take a gander means to look and Killjoy, not sure to call it proper English or not. xD

Nice find! Thanks Sakura.

I agree with Storm that it might not be so great playing in-browser. But we'll see. Looking forward to trying it out at least.

Best thing that can happen to ET if it goes 'live'.

Most easy way to get new ppl to play within no time, searching for correct files, patching, d/l maps and mods is all over and ET veterans still have their game they know.

Free decisionmaking on how a server should be set up for server owners and communities like Bunker may be gone but more players will keep the game alive for some more years. To me thats a compromise one can agree on as a player.

You are right andiN, with this prospect for ET, then more people could play and such. Communities and Clans may have to compromise but like you said, everyone could possibly agree w/ it.

I doubt ET:Live will be help much. If it at least does really work without any troubles, it might be a good replacement for the actual ET.

Newer games, have a different approach, a server browser in a website, integrated with stats and other stuff for social/community things. Then that server browser starts the game. Yet with the advancement of browser technology, maybe that could be interesting.
What et is missing is an easy install, easy configuration - so you can play with a pro config - without having to know where your et directory is.
And then all the nice stuff around a good game. A server browser which lets you filter server by configurations, mods and addons.

Lastly et is missing an overhaul. Might be also new graphics, but I mean more the existing troubles, like very high cpu usage and an UI dating from 2003, which could already today solve most of the configuration issues.
