    Yeah I am trying to install Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory version 2.60c.

    Here is the link:

    I am trying to install it on my MacBook, but all it does is give me a document, and if you click on it, it says "Archiving blah blah blah" and once it's done archiving it gives me the same document except with a .bzz or something liek that at the end of the name. I really want to play this game but I cannot seem to get it to work.

    Any help?

    I'm not seeing any problem here; when I download it, I get a .dmg file (Wolfenstein_ET260c.dmg). The image mounts fine, and I see a Punkbuster installer package (which I didn't try) and a Wolfenstein ET folder that contains the application and it's associated files.

    Wolfenstein ET.app launched just fine (even from the disk image without copying it to the HD)--I could see other servers, graphics looked ok in the demo, sound working, etc.

    I didn't actually play any, but I assume if I'd installed Punkbuster I could have joined a game or started a server.

    Are you getting something other than a .dmg file when you download from that link? Maybe you accidentally changed the extension, or set .dmg files to open with some other app?

    This is all on a MBP, by the way.

    Yes, I get some file that is all messed up and says it needs to be repaired if I download it with my macbook.

    Then the problem is either with your ISP corrupting the download on its way to you, or I guess your browser is screwing up the download somehow.

    Maybe try a different browser to confirm (yes, I know it's a big file), and if that doesn't work it's time to check out your network connection (bum router? Do you have any other downloading issues?).

    Or you could try bumming a network connection off of a friend and trying to download it that way--if it works, definitely your ISP or network.

    By the way, although this problem is happening on a MB, I doubt it has anything to do with the hardware (unless you've already ruled everything else out) so this really belongs in the Applications (or games) section...

    No, the error is with the site. I've let the webmaster know but as to when its fixed.. who knows. The downloaded file has an appended suffix. Just remove it to leave the .dmg and it works fine.

    I have the same exact problem. It is a problem with the graphics card.

    Nope, only thing you can do is wait for a driver update from Apple, if they even release another one. :(

    I tried playing this on my new macbook and the program simply froze on start-up with this beeping noise. I had to force quit.

    Any fixes? Or it just won't work?

    Try putting this .cfg file into your etmain folder: http://redsaurus.net/autoexec.cfg (rename it to autoexec.cfg if your browser downloads it as something else).

    Thanks for the tip...tried it and the game actually opened but at the menu, it froze again.

    Found this on an Apple forum....

    in that file (autoexec.cfg), open it up and add "set r_fullscreen "0"" to it.

    The game is in a window but it works.

    Wolfenstein Problem Resolved

    I know there have been several updates concerning wolfenstein and as you have probably already seen they all crash and you end up with an annoying error beep that get faster until the program shuts down altogether. Believe it or not it is all down to a small text file which is missing in the ETmain folder what you need to do is click on this link which will take you to QubeNet one of Wolfensteins ET's clans the files you needed are there ready for download including other usfull software for mac which you might wish to obtain.

    Can someone tell me where the etconfig.cfg is kept.
    Ive spent ages tweaking my controls but the mods run different cfg files (defaults) and i dont want to have to go through it all again. Its also easier to edit the cfg to add my own vsay replies to team m8s.

    Ive looked in the Home/Library but can;t find where it is and spotlight does not find it either?

    Same Problem here too

    Also have the buzzing sound after I start the game. Have tried downloading from different servers and patching it and it still does the same thing.
    Cant get anything out of those links above.
    Have the latest MacBook Pro 13" with upgraded CPU and 8Gb Ram so dont think its a hardware problem. How do I get this sorted? Please tell me!
    Email me even !

    I got punkbuster working by going to http://www.evenbalance.com/index.php?page=dl-et.php and following the instructions (placing the security file in the pb folder, and the 2 htm files in pb/htm) At first when I joined a server I got kicked because it said I had no cdkey (punkbuster key) I restarted the program and experimented typing "/pb_myguid" which tells you if you have a cdkey, and it turns out I did so I was good to go. I was even lucky enough to join a server that didn't have stupid mods or bots...

    If you don't receive a cdkey from the punkbuster server try typing "/pb_cdkeyreg" to get a new one. Also visit these threads if you have problems:
