Why should you backup your etkey?
* Your etkey needs to be older then 5 days to play at our server
* If you got admin level and loose your etkey, you will loose your admin level too!

What do you need?
* A safe place where you can store your etkey

What is a safe place?
* Anywhere where you cant lose it (USB-Stick, another Harddisk, E-Mail to yourself, online storage, etc..).
Experience shows that - to avoid data loss - its better to use at least 2 safe places!

You dont have a safe place?
Send your etkey to Hirntot and we take care of it for you. Key can be requested again via email (must be same as we recived the key from)
Key must be named like this: - for example a player named "bodin" with email "" needs to rename his etkey to "" (without quotations ofc)
Attach it to a mail and send to: hirntot.admin[at]

After you have found a save place for your etkey, open your filebrowser.

    Locate your et.exe. You will find a folder called etmain in the same directory. It contains the file etkey. Copy it to your safe place.

Windows 7
    The etkey file is in one of the following folders: \Wolfenstein - Enemy Territory\etmain OR \Users\USERNAME\AppData\Local\PunkBuster\ET\etmain. Copy it to your safe place.

    Go to your Home-directory. It contains a folder called .etwolf. Because of the . at the beginning of the foldername, it is a hidden directory, so assure that you see hidden files. The folder .etwolf contains a folder called etmain which contains the file etkey. Copy it to your safe place.

    Home -> Libary -> Application Support -> Wolfenstein ET -> etmain -> etkey
