Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory is a free, stand-alone, downloadable multiplayer game in which players wage war as Axis or Allies in team-based combat.

Most servers run custom maps which you will also have to install if you want to play them.

Maps go into your etmain folder.
(some maps require there own mod specific files to be installed... read the readme files!)

If you try to enter a server with custom maps and get a memory error then go to the console by pressing tilde ( ` ) and type:

/com_hunkmegs 90

-press ENTER after each line
-press tilde to remove console


Before going online after a fresh install I recommend you update Punkbuster. Details - here -

Some servers have fast http downloads set up which means you can actually download many mods and maps automatically when joining a server and Punkbuster theoretically should update automatically. The reality is not all servers have fast downloads available and Punkbuster doesn't always update itself well after a fresh install of a game. Also, some mods can't be installed via a server download. This is why I've explained the above.

cya online!
