ET: Legacy 2.82 - Better late than never!

Yes, that's the name of the release and yes, we are aware that we've deviated from the quarterly release plan since last year. On the bright side though, it has not yet been a full year since the last release as we're 4 days early!


For the full changelog, please refer to this page

Notable engine changes include

ETLTV We've started paving the way for ETLTVTrackBase In cooperation with TrackBase admins, additional statistics data is shared with server trackers • Server demos Yes, we're getting there! Automatic server demos have been reworked, they are still a work in progress, feedback is appreciated • Package Manager ET: Legacy is now available at SnapCraft

Notable mod changes include

HUD editor Significantly strengthened the functionality of the HUD editor ( • AltWeap Improved behaviour for alternative weapons (primarily riflenades) on death and respawn

Although we started the year with the unfortunate news that this year's LAN event will be cancelled, it is great to see the competitive scene being strengthened in ET: Legacy events Discord. We wish the admins all the best and are hopeful to see another LAN event in the future. ~~Possibly with an ET: Legacy dev team participating?~~

Thank you to everyone for testing the development snapshots and providing feedback resulting in this full release being again packed with features for you. It's great to see the community interaction as active as it is. If you have any thoughts on ET: Legacy, we would be glad to have you on our Discord.

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.


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


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.


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/' and all your cfgs/etkey You can also upload those required pak's by yourself to your Phone Internal Storage to: 'PhoneInternalStorage/Android/data/` may vary depends on Android versions.


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.


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 Scrims

Any FPS game with e-sports ambitions requires a dedicated competitive scene, so for this blog post we want to thank the 'ET: Legacy scrims' community for their long-standing commitment. The 'ET: Legacy scrims' community was created and is organised by eMMiel, Bystry and n'papo?, is powered by TeamMuppet with dedicated server infrastructure and facilitated by Kimi with the Gathermaster bot, so all in all a wonderful example of community commitment. Therefore, we plan to officially support and integrate this community into the ET: Legacy Discord, making it easier for the interested players among you to join in and get to know the more competitive side of ET: Legacy. While this integration still has to be ironed out here and there, we are happy to already announce this partnership to help grow the emerging competitive scene on ET: Legacy. scrims.jpg The current format are daily matches for 3on3 or 6on6, depending on the amount of online members. There are no skill brackets for now. Everyone is welcome to join and play a few test matches to see whether it's a fit. For further information, please visit their #rules channel which contains extensive info regarding the organisation and gameplay of the played scrim matches.

Depending on the reception among you, the playerbase, future plans range from experimenting with other scrim formats to organising one-day-cups or tournaments as was successfully done in the past. All that's left to say is, go check out their Discord server and play a few matches to get accustomed!
