ET: Legacy 2.82.1 - Patches Again!

Hello everyone!

After the big ET: Legacy 2.82 release, we come back with the usual "hotfix", mostly adressing post-release issues.


The most notable are probably HUD fixes. Problems with their coversion should be fixed now.

There has also been more work done on ETLTV, supoporting 64+ players servers now, plus added chaining support.

We have been doing some futher fixes on the new crosshair versions, too - both in code and on their image files.

Mortar and Mobile MG jiggle effects have been reduced.

...and many more things!

Notable engine changes include

ET: Legacy on Android

This has been few days passed since our newest release yet and this post should be released way earlier Yes I know. I am here shed some light on Android Port of this game to those are keen to know more about its origin how it started and explain a bit more about control sheme to those who are still not familiar with it or looking for such explaination.

PRE-STORY:

Before we begin our small story talk there is known issue with server list browser not showing servers. Disable ui_disableOssFilter 1 in game console and just a warning only legacy mod is compatibble. How to open console Bellow GENERAL

STORY TIME:

It has been year of 2018 almost the end of it. I found out that SDL has added support for Android Devices and in my head "An Idea has started to show up" to start porting / adding support for ET Legacy for Android. I had basic support for Android in 2019 nothing fancy just run a game and connect to a server thats all I had in a back, more of the stuff has been added for getting the experience better for players up to Official Support for Android with 2.78 ET: Legacy.

GENERAL:

Latest Release of Android Version of game gives you all you need to get you on the server with minimal input as possible for user side so to speak it does download required files to your Phone Internal Storage. For Android Systems is is usually 'PhoneInternalStorage/Android/data/org.etlegacy.com' and all your cfgs/etkey You can also upload those required pak's by yourself to your Phone Internal Storage to: 'PhoneInternalStorage/Android/data/org.etlegacy.com` may vary depends on Android versions.

USAGE:

How to use the Buttons on your screens.

As shown above all those Buttons has their purpose. Buttons Binding are hardcoded in App code with their default counterparts in Game exept Shoot N and Alternate Weapon / Rifle Granade B due too lack of good mouse support at this moment.

As we did get to the end of this post. Let plan ahead Roadmap of this app:

  1. Better contolls alike Beloko
  2. Better support for mouse/keyboard/joystick

ET: Legacy 2.81 - Incoming!

It's happening, everybody! We are kicking off the year 2023 with a massive release and there is so much MORE on the horizon!

20th Anniversary LAN

Initially released in 2003, we have the 20th anniversary of ET incoming in May. For a proper celebration, the wonderful folks of ET: Legacy Competitive are organising an on-site LAN event during the anniversary weekend based on ET: Legacy. After some showcase matches during the '2021 QuakeCon At Home' and several 'smaller' cups and tournaments, this is going to be the first 'major' e-sport appearance using ET: Legacy. For more information, please head over to the info channel in their Discord.

Release cycle

We are aware that we aimed for smaller quarterly releases and we are doing our best to get back to that! Nonetheless, we are even more happy to now bring you 8 months of hard work with this release. With the cooperation of the dev team and the comp scene admins growing closer and closer over the last few months and in preparation of this year's LAN event, there is a multitude of changes and features dedicated to improving the e-sports experience of ET: Legacy.

HUD Editor

One of the biggest features is the improved in-game HUD editor reachable by using the menu UI "Menu -> Options -> View -> HUD Editor" or by typing in console the /edithud command. For more information on this, please refer to this (WIP) page.

Changelog

You can find the comprehensive list of changes here, but we have compiled a list of the most notable changes in our Discord server, if you want to have a look. It's also the best place to give feedback, ask for support and discuss anything related to ET: Legacy (or ET/RTCW in general)

ET: Legacy 2.80.2

ET: Legacy 2.80.2 'Path Cleared! But like, for real this time!'

Two weeks ago we released the first hotfix 2.80.1 'Path Cleared!' for the initial ET: Legacy 2.80 'Clear the Path!' release another two weeks earlier. Backed by an absolutely amazing increase in activity following the recent Steam release of Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory, we are happy to bring another hotfix your way.

hotfix2.jpg

Given the age of the game, user-friendliness is not on the level of modern games. Given the recent influx in players, we improved the quality of error messages for debugging. On the other hand, we also fixed an issue crashing the game on start-up for some of you. Improving debugging is only a small part as we are also actively looking into UI customisations and improvements. (Again. But like for real this time!) Some improvements to the mod UI have already been included in this release with others still being ironed out.


PRIMARY CHANGES
  • Fixed double sound issue
  • Fixed voice chats on steam 2.60b client
  • Fixed game not running on Wayland on Linux
  • Prevented unintentional pushing by holding down +activate

-> full changelog


OTHER NEWS

ET: Legacy on Steam? We are still reaching out to the right people regarding the possibility of releasing ET: Legacy on Steam. Some progress has been made, but unfortunately we have no official news regarding this just yet.

ET: Legacy being flagged by Anti-Virus We have acquired an official license for a new Windows installer, which allows us to digitally sign the binaries. This will make antivirus software less trigger happy in the future. Unfortunately, migrating to the new installer is still a work in progress, so this hotfix is still using the old installer without signed binaries. The new installer should be available starting with release 2.81.
