Why 2.55 still playable ???

Post by papa le barbare » Wed May 13, 2009 8:41 am

Hello

I have an idea, to definitively stop the 2.55 version.

It is not a joke, and I really think it will be successfull :

Let's say there are these mods : JAYMOD + NOQUARTER + ETPRO + ETPUB + OMNIBOT

Each leader of the development'teams initiate a PETITION, asking IdSoftware to stop the "etmasterserver" of 2.55.

If the five teams merge their petition in one, it will be a very massive and persuasive demand, and IdSoftware would have no reason to deny, isn't it ?

Imagine it, it could be the best thing happening to Wolfenstein:EnemyTerritory (after 2.6 patch of course) no ?

I hope JAYBIRD and staff members will read this post.

Bye all - and read you soon.

A Wolfenstein Lover

Because it splits the small ET Community/Players into two groups?

Then probably they need to fix their master list first. On 2.6b i have to refresh list 10 times to see servers. Also, somehow favorites never work for me.

Also, tell them to release new installation which installs directly 2.6b. More or less game will die soon after all GUID spoofing will be in public.

Time to move on for new game since mode development is stop and game anti cheat development has stopped too. Game is 6 years old anyways.

There is 500 servers running 2.55 (info from splatterladder).

Me, and I think every server-owner, will upgrade OF COURSE in last version to continue the passion.

Yes there are "new games" - but Wolf is the fastest FPS I have never played (except Quake)

Concerning the refresh problem in 2.60 concerning a too voluminous list of server, I did not know, but could be a future patch (in a final version 3 ???)

Sorry to be a dreamer, but please Jaybird, answer us, is it seriously/technically possible ???

Bye soldiers

i realy dont think they will ever put a new patch for et. Its freeware and its dying. The hole scene was there because a group off ppl did some superb job by dev etpub etpro etjay and et NQ.

Also why killing 255...abserd.

Im kind of tired after 6 years of et and reading these ridiculous post about changing something. But cant realy help on the issue. So leave this kicking on a game while its already laying on the floor and dying. Just to say it in a language every1 understands.

Put ya money were ya mouth is.

Killing 2.55 would help the ET Community in unparalleled ways. I've tried to invite some of my friends to play but they never found the patch to 2.60 and got tired of the buggy gameplay, random OpenGL shite in the game window and so much more. If everyone was forced onto a patch that actually worked correctly the game could start to take off again quite easily, the gameplay is still unmatched by any game as of yet.

Agree but lately spoofable GUID finished most of the other remaining things.

Game is going to be like CS. Always played but cheaters running around.
