Custom maps server connection issue


(Roggued) #1

Hello community, i had updated Windows from Windows 7 (64bit) to Windows 8.1 Lite (64 bit) and reinstalled ETQW downloaded from torrents as i used before, Vanilla works fine but while trying to connect to custom maps server mod, client comes with error (listed at the bottom):
I have never connected to custom maps server on new Windows 8.1, may be something with tourney mod/custom files downloads, any suggestions? I think i got most C++ libraries installed. May be i should download recommended by TAW Custom maps server ETQW laucher iso?

My pc configuration is:
Single core Athlon 3200+ 2.1 Ghz
4 GB DDR-2
120GB SSD Gygabite
Ati Radeon HD 2600 Pro (512Mb)

Hi @roggued I invite you to community discord where you’ll get a much quicker response to any questions: https://discord.gg/bhuaMDA

There are some known issues with windows 8 through 10 where there are fixes floating around like you mentioned, I would recommend trying it as it installs separately and will not interfere with your existing install.
