This release was prepared in collaboration with the ETQW Revival community (also known as TAW), most active fan community of Enemy Territory: Quake Wars players.

The game has been tested on Windows 7, 8, 8.1, 10 and 11, on 32-bit and 64-bit versions, the game works fine. The game supports widescreen and ultra-widescreen resolutions

  • As alternative - you can extract files from .ISO image if you have installed WinRAR. Right click on .ISO file -> Extract files. After that just launch the installation with Setup.exe
  • Install the game. If the installer will ask for CD key, enter this one: SSGWPH3HT3DCWP2T 76
  • Also it is recommended to install DirectX from the disc (if you're using Windows 10 - enable DirectPlay, read this or this guide how to do it)
  • After you installed the game - install the patch

If you have a QHD or 4k monitor and 144Hz,

You have to go in the "tourney" folder and add this in the etqwconfig.cfg

//resolution and aspect ratio
seta r_fullscreen "1"
seta r_mode "-1" // allows you to put custom screen resolution, you can also put number from 1-15 to use in game settings
seta r_aspectRatio "1" // allows custom screen ratio, you can also put number 0-3, 0=4:3, 1=16:9, 2=16:10, 3=5:4
seta r_customWidth "2560" //custom width, 2560
seta r_customHeight "1440" // custom high, 1440
seta com_unlockFPS "1" //unlocks fps over 30fps
seta com_unlock_maxFPS "120" //locks fps to x value, helps if you want to limit frames with vsync off
seta r_displayRefresh "120" //sets refresh rate, 60 is default, if you have 144hz monitor feel free to change it, don't forget to set other settings accordingly

I grew up with this game, playing with my farther and my brother (and bots) I was born 2007 aswell. Sadly many new games don't have an good LAN System no more ): .

Great overlooked game, spent a lot of time back in the day playing against bots since everyone was too busy playing Team Fortress 2(me included most of the time) instead of this. Still worth playing today especially if you can find an actual server with people on it.

The Quake series is such a divisive franchise. Every game is different from the last. But it's funny how the games people hate the most (Quake 2,4, and Enemy Territory) are the only ones with any cohesion. Quake 1 and 3 are the ones people rave about the most, but they have nothing to do with the war against the Strogg.

Kek 2022-08-07 -12 points

Wtf, you do realise quake has various meaning and it's not entirely associated with Quake game franchise XDDD Idk how unintelligent you have to be to blow out such comment.
