ETBlight Server Installation (rip of etpubs install txt)

-------------------------

This page assume you have a working Enemy Territory server.

Configuration and detailed setup instructions are not covered in this document.
See the server.cfg in the download zip for an example configuration and use the etblight_x.x.x.html or visit ETBlight CVARs & shrubbot for more detailed instructions.

 

Linux
-----

1) Create a directory named 'etblight' next to the 'etmain' directory in either the Enemy Territory installation directory or the ~/.etwolf/ directory of the user that runs etded.x86.
By default the game installation directory is located at /usr/local/games/enemy-territory/.

2) Copy the qagame.mp.i386.so and the etblight_().pk3 files from the download .zip to the 'etblight' directory created in step one.

3) ETBlight need the liblua5.1.so file (included in the download .zip) located in the Enemy Territory installation directory where etded.x86 or et.x86 is located.
This is an important step, as the server will not start without it.

3.1) Make sure to have the correct permissions set to liblua5.1.so (chmod a=r,u+w liblua5.1.so).

Hint: If you don't have access to the Enemy Territory installation directory,
e.g. a rented server, you may have to ask your admin to copy the necessary files for you.

4) Ensure that etded or et is called with the additional command line arguments '+set fs_game etblight' (in addition to the ones you already use!).


Windows
-------

1) Create a directory named 'etblight' next to the 'etmain' directory in the Enemy Territory installation directory.
By default the game installation directory is located at 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Wolfenstein - Enemy Territory'.

2) Copy the qagame_mp_x86.dll and the etblight_().pk3 files from the download .zip to the 'etblight' directory created in step one.

3) ETBlight need the liblua5.1.dll file (included in the download .zip) located in the Enemy Territory installation directory where etded.exe or et.exe is located.
This is an important step, as the server will not start without it.

Hint: If you don't have access to the Enemy Territory installation directory,
e.g. a rented server, you have to ask your admin to copy the necessary files for you.

4) Ensure that ETDED.exe or ET.exe is called with the additional command line arguments '+set fs_game etblight' (in addition to the ones you already use!).
