ET: LEGACY

Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory is a free multiplayer first-person shooter. Set during World War II and heavily focused on team work, it was initially released in 2003 by Splash Damage and id Software. More than a decade after its release, after spending countless hours of escorting tanks and trucks, stealing gold and radar parts and transmitting confidential documents, it was time to dust off the game which consistently refused to go down.

Enemy Territory: Legacy is an open source project based on the code of Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory which was released in 2010 under the terms of GPLv3 license. The main goal of this project is to fix bugs, remove old dependencies and make it playable on all major operating systems while still remaining compatible with the ET 2.60b version and as many of its mods as possible. We do appreciate any contribution to the project such as patches, suggestions or comments.

Many thanks to Splash Damage for their release of the source code, raedwulf-et (especially Ralph Eastwood) & Unvanquished for our code base and ioQuake3for their patches (especially /dev/humancontroller). Kudos!

Also thanks to JetBrains for providing licences for their products.

 

WolfWatch First Interview with Thunder, founder of The Wolfteam

We decided to dive into ET World and interview guys from different resources and gaming communities. And we start with Thunder from The Wolfteam.

 

Hello Thunder, who are you?

Hello Ray, well I am an 45 year old carpenter.. Yeah who should have belived that J

What are you doing right now?

I am currently working a lot for ETLegacy with 3dmodels, shaders and other assets. And when I find some little time for myself I work on one of the atleast 20 maps I have laying around that never got finished.

How did you get involved in Wolfenstein Enemy Territory multiplayer game?

Just pure luck (or was it?) , I was sniffing around the internet for a game me and a friend could play and have some fun. We wasn’t the biggest fans of CS as it gets a bit boring with ”a bomb has been planted” playing… I actually like the other one better when you rescue hostages. Have a plan somewhat to get this into Etlegacy for the mappers J.

Well back to topic, then I stumbled over a free(!) full(!) game and thought: ha sure.. But there it was and the journey began..
