Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory Guide

Enemy Territory comes with six official maps. You can also download more maps from our website.

Open your Enemy Territory folder and put your map inside the folder etmain.
Play the map by creating a new game and choosing your map.
Also you can improve your Enemy Territory gameplay with scripts and tweak files or even create your own binds (explained below).

Open your Enemy Territory folder and put your script or tweak inside the folder etmain.
Read more about Binds, Scripts, Tweaks & Commands below.
In early 2004 the source code for the game logic (not the game engine) was released to the benefit of its modding community.

¤ Modifications (Mods) files
Download a mod here or a goodie here (some mods come with instalation files while others you need to create a new folder on your Enemy Territory directory).
Follow the mod instructions and install it.
Start your Enemy Territory game and click on the mods option to switch mods.
There are also third-party programs to help you in the game such as VoIP (Voice over IP) programs (TeamSpeak and Ventrilo), browsers (All Seeing Eye) or minimizers (ETWC).

¤ Third-party programs
Download a third-party program here.
Follow the program instructions and install it.
Use it with your Enemy Territory game.

Starting the game

Once you have all files you need installed you can start to play. Start by opening your Enemy Territory executable file. A screen asking for your settings will show. You can change them later in the Options and Profile menus. Now you can either Play Online or Host Game.

¤ Play Online
Click on the Play Online button and a server list screen appears.
Now on the Filters section make sure you have selected Internet on Source in order to play over the internet. You can, however, choose another type of source - Favorites or Local.
Additionally you can change the game type and the other filters.
Choose a server by clicking on it. Clicking twice will enter that server. You can click the Refresh List button if no servers are showing up.
¤ Host Game
Click on the Host Game button and server setting screen appears.
Adjust your server settings to your desire. Click on the Advanced button to adjust more settings.
Finally click on Start Server.
You can also connect directly to a server by using the console.

¤ Connecting directly to a server
Open the console key and type /connect where is the server IP address (eg: /connect 212.159.6.230).

Entering the battlefield

So you now joined or created a game. All your questions can be answered in the game manual. Read it to know better your surroundings.

¤ Join a team
You start in Spectator mode. Press the L key to go into Limbo mode.
Three flags show on the right on of the screen: Allies, Axis & Spectators. Choose one to join it.
Below the flags are the classes you can choose: Soldier, Medic, Engineer, Field Ops & Covert Ops. Click on the simbol to choose the class.
Some classes have multiple weapons. Click on the weapon to show all the available weapons for that class.
Close the Limbo menu by pressing the L key and you're ready to fight.


Binds, Scripts, Tweaks & Commands

Scripts are a set of commands written in an interpreted language to automate certain application tasks, stored in a file for subsequent or repeated execution.

¤ Creating a script
Create a new configuration file for storing the scripts. Open notepad or another text editor and save the file as autoexec.cfg. It is very important that the extension of the file is .cfg!
Open your autoexec.cfg file and add stuff in it. Check above for scripts and tweaks that you can add.
If your autoexec.cfg isn't loading, open the console and type /exec autoexec.cfg and it will load the file.
¤ Creating a bind

bind

eg: bind "X" say "Hi!"


¤ Script commands
To create a script more complex than using just binds, you can also use the commands seta, set, vstr, echo and exec.

seta
set
echo
exec

Use // to make notes on the script.
eg: //This is a note.


In set we can use vstr for switching the returned value:

set vstr

eg: set z vstr x1
set x1 ; set z vstr x2
set x2 ; set z vstr x1


Check here to view the Enemy Territory console commands and cvars.

¤ Color commands
You can add colors to your text and nickname. Just use ^ followed by the number or letter of the color. A basic example would be ^7=^1W^7=. This would look like =W= in the game.

^0 = Black
^1 = Red
^2 = Green
^3 = Yellow
^4 = Blue
^5 = Cyan
^6 = Pink
^7 = White
^8 = Orange
^9 = Grey
^a = Orange
^b = Turquoise
^c = Purple
^d = Light Blue
^e = Purple
^f = Light Blue
^g = Light Green
^h = Dark Green
^i = Dark Red
^j = Claret
^k = Brown
^l = Light Brown
^m = Olive
^n = Beige
^o = Beige
^p = Black
^q = Red
^r = Green
^s = Yellow
^t = Blue
^u = Cyan
^v = Pink
^w = White

^z = Orange
^/ = Beige
^* = Gray
^- = Olive

Clans and Communities

Wolfstuff.org is an international game resource and community site.

¤ Clans
Most gamers organize themselves into small groups of like-minded players in order to play together and socialize. Typically, these groups start suddenly, contain a handful of members, focus on a single game and have a short life span. There are literally hundreds of these clans or guilds in each online game.

¤ Communities
Some gamers are organized less formally in communities, which may also contain clans or guilds. Often these communities include websites generating a fair amount of news and active forums to give the members their sense of community.
