Enemy Territory: Quake Wars v1.2

October 31st, 2007 by Crusader

The version 1.2 update for EnemyTerritory: Quake Wars has been released by id Software and Splash Damage. The lengthy changelogcan be read at the officialcommunity site, but there’s one caveat, as noted by Timothee Besset at theforums:

We will release an updated linux client tonight or tomorrow. This firstversion will not have VOIP, but it will let everyone play on 1.2 servers.

I plan to work out the voicechat support within the next few days and releaseanother update. For now we are pretty busy monitoring the autoupdate processand the general 1.2 rollout.

The patch brings balance tweaks, fireteam improvements, a refined Stopwatchmode, various user interface changes, bot updates, and the usual bugfixes.

If you’re interested in watching high-level ET:QW play, Gamespothas video from a match between Team HOT and Team Exile from the Earth UnderSiege tournament at their site.

    First I did the upgrade, then I deleteed it and did a Full Install. Still seg faults. No other message. Anyone got a clue?

    Move your .etqwcl directory, then try starting it.

    Did you able it to install it?
    Or have you forgotten to chmod 754 ETQW-client-1.2-full.r2.x86.run

    Works fine for me

    I want to point out that I predicted we wouldn’t get VOIP — we’ve been through this before. TTimo says maybe in the next version we’ll get it, so maybe we will. Actually, VOIP is annoying — I can’t really understand a lot of the American accents and most people just talk about nonsense anyway. Still. :) Its only useful for fireteams.. and honestly, its less useful then say, Mumble since your guild members can join it without going in a game..

    I Don’t care for VOIP myself. Other players will just might tell you to “shut up” anyway.
