For the massive feedback for and interest in ET: Legacy 2.77. On the first day alone we broke 1.5k downloads and that number is still increasing. Unfortunately, with such a substantial changelog it was not surprising that a few issues sneaked by, which were cause for a bit of a headache for everyone the last two days. Therefore, we have decided to pause work on the current roadmap for 2.78 release and instead concentrate on ironing out the main bugs with 2.77 and ship a hotfix to you in the coming week(s).
The primary identified issues are as follows:
Asset MD5 checksum failed pop-up during installation.
Cause: Mirror link for downloading original asset paks doesn't work.
"Try again" and it should choose Mirror#2.
Couldn't load official pak file error when connecting to servers.
Cause: You are missing pak1 and pak2 files in your ETLegacy/etmain folder.
Fix: Download these paks from https://mirror.etlegacy.com/etmain/ and place them in etmain folder in
fs_basepath (aka. installation path).
Issue: Alt+Tab Minimiser doesn't work. Cause: Caused by SDL update. Fix: Use Borderless fullscreen or Windowed mode, which let's you exchange between opened windows.
Issue: Antivirus blocking ET: Legacy installer. Cause: Windows.. Fix: Allow the application manually until it is whitelisted by Microsoft.
Issue: The game is showing old version number, or has bugged menu. Cause: 2.77 was installed over 2.76 path, causing conflicts. Fix: Clean up installation and Documents/ETLegacy/legacy (Win) folders.
Issue: Infinite download loop when connecting to server.
Cause: Downloaded file is stored as temp file and moved to
Fix: Manually copy the respective file from
Thank you for your patience and understanding for applying these (temporary) fixes, while we work on a hotfix. Luckily, the most prevelant issues can be manually worked around in the meantime, which means you can still enjoy the 2.77 release. If you find additional problems, please let us know or ideally directly file tickets on the Github tracker so nothing gets lost. https://github.com/etlegacy/etlegacy/issues
