Fa are a bit Snobbish think there are only server, etc. There are some good guys on Fa but a lot of A-Holes that's why I don't play there servers. I appreciate your work and efforts to improve as do most I think. The biggest problem is so many A-holes hack and go over board, my god some have 90% accuracy and you get killed stepping out of spawn. I don't use 70% of what Nexus can do and no wall hack except to see once in a while for A-holes as mentioned. Keep up good work and FA really stands for FAT ASS server.
Well I may have some ideas on how to solve your problems but it seems you are very new to linux...
I wouldn't recommend starting by compiling ETH if you don't have any knowledge about that OS, AFAIK eth-1.4-archit3ct-b3 does not compile on Ubuntu 64 bits (libghf which depends on libelf, libbfd and libopcodes will cause you headaches). That is why I started modifying it till it was so different that it eventually became eth-annihilation, which I later ported to Windows since nobody were playing ET on linux anymore, so I haven't touched Linux since 2017, I would have hard time helping you if I'm honest.
That said, eth-1.4-archit3ct-b3 is fairly old and outdated, you wouldn't be able to play on any mods nowadays except etpro and perhaps etpub. If you still really want to do that, look at sETH32nix, eth32nix salvation or resurrection which are the best hacks for raging ever made for ET.
@Annihil Ok, I thought I was doing something wrong, lucky I tested against bots ^^ I disabled the feature and made the aimfov really small 2.0. I think I look legit now :) Sadly in the night no eu servers besides FA are filled. So I tested with 250 ping xD maybe I have to adjust the settings with good ping, when I can actually hit people xD
Well so first of all ETLegacy is a game and a mod, you don't need ETL to play on servers running Legacy mod. The benefits of ETL, on the top of my head, is that it works on much more devices than 2.60b, for example Mac OS X Catalina, Linux 64 bits, Raspberry Pi, Android and even PS Vita.
It also fixes the pain points of ET with built-in minimizer, auto desktop resolution, etkey generator.
Now, if you are using Windows 10, ETL will not give you any substantial benefits over 260b if you are using Nexus. I have benchmarked ETL 277 and ET 260b, and 260b gives me higher framerate, which matters if you are using Nexus. You can use ETWC to mininize ET, I added an etkey generator in Nexus, and it is very easy to use a custom resolution with cvars on 260b. Also ETL does not support ETPro / Punkbuster.
Nexus does not support ETL, but Legacy mod via 260b.
@govap You'll need some coding skills to even understand what he is talking about. Although, you can change r_picmip with Adawolfa unlocker/dev client. Also Nexus Annihilator has got this feature, but I'm gonna test it out after I buy it.
