Fixing hunkmegs and allowing the big maps to load


Recommended Posts

Yesterday I saw some players that had problems loading maps.

I think the problems was caused by the good ol' hunkmegs problem.

So here is the simple way to fix it without having to mess with config files.

A. Start ET by clicking on the et.exe file in whatever folder you installed the game. It is important that the "clean" game is started WITHOUT any mods like NQ.

B. Pull down the console in ET When the game have started (use the "~/½/§/... " key just below the "Esc" button and next to the "1" in the upper left on your key board).

C. Now write "\com_hunkmegs" in the console. This will display the current value of this setting.
If the value is 56 (the default installation value) you have found the problem.
So, change this value to 196 by writing "\com_hunkmegs 196" in the console.

Now, quit the game and let ET save this setting for next time you open it.



 I hope this works for you 🙂

Edit: changed some text after advise from Geek) 🙂

Very good post Chap - thank you for the effort 😉


In a addition, i noticed some peeps don't know the "console" button. and when i tell its "under the esc" some seem to have a different keyboard layout and get lost.

B. Pull down the console in ET When the game have started (use the key just below the "Esc" button on your key board).

For extra information. This key on your keyboard it is called the "tilde" key and it is the button always left next to the 1 upper left

It has a the  ~ sign.



2nd little thingy. if you "quit" ET make sure you do not use a key-bind for that. (i have press F12 /quit - instant return to desktop) and i noticed some settings then are not implemented or stored by the game.

Use the menu and quit function of the game 🙂

Thanks Geek

I adjusted some text for that console button in the post.

I checked trackbase from yesterday games and found the maps where Defender had problems https://et.trackbase.net/player/45918/.  Look at the games where session length = 0 minutes.

These maps are not typical hunkmegs-problem maps. So now I actually just think that defender have too many maps in his etmain folder (like you or o-0 also said yesterday).

But hunkmegs-advise can be useful to have sooner or later 😉

Still I like this topic 😉

If someone has a problem related to console/hunkmegs it's very convenient to redirect them to this nice post on the forum.

I like quick-reference cards ^^
