If you are using 64-bit, then it is recommended to install the following file:
sudo apt-get install libSDL1.2debian:i386
You can download the game from the terminal using this command:
wget -c http://ftp.games.skynet.be/pub/wolfenstein/et-linux-2.60.x86.runAnd then we make the downloaded file executable:
chmod +x et-linux-2.60.x86.run
And we run the file with admin rights
sudo ./et-linux-2.60.x86.runNow you should see a enemy territory icon in your menu.
If you have sound problems
A lot of Ubuntu users can't get the old classic Wolfenstein ET to work with sound, but I have good news - I know a fix that works every time.
wget -q -O - http://nullkey.kapsi.fi/et-sdl-sound/et-sdl-sound.gz | gzip -d > et-sdl-sound && chmod a+x et-sdl-sound
then we need to edit the file from the old alsa sound system to our new pulse sound system:
sudo gedit /home/yourusername/et-sdl-sound
Go to line 40 and the change the line from this:
SDL_AUDIODRIVER="pulse"and also add this:
save the file and close and then you need to make a symbol link, so you can play the game:
If you want to change the screen resolution
Wolfenstein ET is not exactly a new game and you might want to change the resolution so it fits your screen.
You will need to create a new file and name it autoexec.cfg and it should contain the following:
set name ^$PlayernameInsert the above and also remember to change "Playername" to your playername in the game.
bind "i" dropclip
bind "k" kill
bind "rightarrow" "vsay Thanks"
bind "," say_team ^3Please Wait...^4Bar is Recharging!
bind "leftarrow" say ^WMy^1 HP^W is now [s]
bind "downarrow" say Thanks for the ^1Revive! [r]
bind "uparrow" vsay Welcome
bind "h" toggle cg_draw2d
bind "p" toggle cg_atmosphericEffects
bind "m" vsay EnemyDisguised
bind "ins" vsay Thanks
bind "del" vsay Cheer
bind "home" vsay_team FollowMe
set cg_fov "120"
seta com_soundMegs "64"
seta snaps "40"
seta rate "25000" // was 16000
seta com_hunkMegs "250"
seta r_customwidth "1366"
seta r_customheight "768"
seta r_fullscreen "1"
seta cg_drawFPS "1" //DISPLAY FRAMES PER SECOND
seta cg_drawGun "1" //DISPLAY SELECTED WEAPON
seta com_zoneMegs "64"
seta s_volume "0.9"
seta s_musicvolume "0"
seta s_khz "22"
seta s_bits "16"
seta s_channels "2"
and you will also need to change a line in your playerfile to allow your user to use the custom screen resolution, do that with:
If you don't have a profile yet, then open the game and make one. Change "seta r_mode" from the default value to "-1" save the file and close it.
That is it
I hope it works for you, enjoy.
