    Post Chef's Guide - Config making (1) "The Basics"

    Hello all,


    I am going to talk to you about configs, which are also known as .cfg files.
    There are many kinds of cfg files, but they are devided into two groups.
    One group of cfgs is used for a server, the other one is used for a player.
    I am going to talk to you about that second one today.
    Before I can really teach you somthing about it, you have to know what it is.
    A cfg file can change alot, almost all of your settings in ET and save them.
    For example, your gamma, fov, sensitivity, brightness, connection type, fps, and much much much more.
    It can also be used for your convenience, like not having to type alot to change name or say somthing you have to say alot, for example, a sentence you say to players whom want to join your clan.
    Now lets stop the chatting about what it is because you will learn while I am telling you about it.

    Let's start with teaching you how to make and use a config.
    Please follow my steps correctly without doing anything diffirent because I assume you do not know alot about cfgs, meaning you could F*** up easier than you might think.

    First of all we go to our etmain folder.
    This folder is located in our Wolfenstein ET folder.
    Your etmain folder is the folder where you save all your maps etc...

    If you are there make a new notepad file called "one.cfg" make sure it is called "one.cfg" and not "one.cfg.txt."
    (one can be replaced with everything but I advice to not make the name too big)

    After you did that save it.
    Now lets say you want to make a bind.
    To do that follow the steps below;
    -Open one.cfg
    -Write:
    Code:
    bind P say Hello.
    -Close it and save it.

    To use it follow the steps below;
    -Open ET
    -Join a server
    -Open console
    -Execute your config by typing "/exec one.cfg" and pressing enter.
    -Now your new bind is loaded and you can use P to say Hello.
    (some cfgs will recuire a reconnect before they work, this usualy are cfgs which edit graphics, but these cfgs are harder to make and I assume you do not have those skills yet)

    Now lets make another one, saying you want to change some graphic settings.
    Go to etmain agian and make a new notepad file called "two.cfg"
    Save it.
    Now open it and write:
    Code:
    Seta g_gamma 2
    Seta cg_fov 100
    Now to make it work open ET, go to console and write "/exec two.cfg" then press enter.
    This cfg will change your FOV and your Gamma.
    Gamma is compareable with brightness.
    To come to know what FOV is I redirect you to my friend, Wiki (Field of view - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)


    Please leave a comment/reply.

    PS: I made multiple GUIDES for cfg making, to follow them in the correct order check the (number) in the topic title

    This GUIDE was made by Chef.
    Please do not claim to be the one who made this GUIDE.
    Always refer to the true maker of the file when posting it somewhere else.
    Thanks,
    Chef
    I already ask myself the question for months/years.

    Whats the different about 'set' and 'seta' ?

    Seta saves it, set doesnt.
    Example:
    If you use Set name1 "Chef"
    you can use /vstr name1 to get the name "Chef"
    But if you close ET name1 is not longer bound to the name1 variable.

    If you use Seta name1 "Chef"
    you can use /vstr name1 to get the name "Chef"
    And if you close ET and start it again you can still use /vstr name1

    Hope you understand, my English isn't prefect.

    Ok,
    I got a little problem with ET.
    Since i turned once cg_drawgun 0.
    I can't turn it back to 1.

    I already tried seta cg_drawgun 1
    and set cg_drawgun 1
    but if i change weapon and come back to main weapon, still cg_drawgun 0
    Talking about ETPro 2.0.7 (2.55).
    I don't have that cmd anymore in my cfg.
    And i already did /exec default.cfg ;exec etconfig.cfg ;cvar_restart

    Re: Chef's Guide - Config making (1) "The Basics"

    Does it give some sort of error message?
    If yes please quote it or post a screenshot.

    There are a few other things that could be the problem.
    First one is the cvar Testgun, it will give the same effect as cg_drawgun 0.
    But it resets after ET restart, so I assume that's not the problem.

    Also possible could be cg_gunx, if you set it to high (I belive 50+) you cannot see your gun anymore. But since cg_gunx is cheat protected I think that's not the problem.

    And another possible problem could be some sort of class/weapon changer/picker.
    Some players like to see weapon 3 but like to make weapon 4 invisible for example. Which is of course done with the cg_drawgun cvar.
    It could be possible it's set to 0 in your class/weapon changer/picker.

    If that still doesn't solve your problem and you really want to get it fixed it could be an idea to post your main config here.

    Regards,

    This solved my problem,
    Thanks for helping me.

    etconfig moet je niet veranderen, je moet gwn een cfg pakken en renamen naar C4lvin ofzo . en dan /exec c4lvin dat zal het wel doen.

    Levenlooz beat me to it.
    Just make a notepad file, put the config in it,
    save it as NAME.cfg, make sure it's NAME.cfg and not NAME.cfg.txt.
    Then open ET, open console and enter /exec name.cfg
    That's all
