Fix Com_hunkMegs errors
Many people have had and continue to have issues with com_hunkmegs errors. The reason is certain maps that are in our rotation require a little more memory because of their size. This really isn't an issue anymore, as the ET default of 56 hunkmegs is tiny and meant for a time when 128MB of memory was common. Now with pretty much every system with at least 512MB of memory, it's a bit outdated.

There are 2 ways to deal with this, and in reality, both are simple. I'll go through the XP version, since if you're playing on 'nix, you should already have an understanding of how to do this, and Vista is nearly identical to XP in terms of doing this. The first is to either create a, or modify an existing, autoexec.cfg. To create one, simply go to the directory of the mod you're playing, in our case, jaymod. By default, this is something like
C:\Program Files\Wolfenstein - Enemy Territory\jaymod
In here, create a text file called
, making sure what it ends in .cfg and not .cfg.txt. Open in in notepad or your favorite plain text editor (not Word), and add in
seta com_hunkmegs 72
You can use whatever value you wish, but realize ET won't actually use more then 192 at any time, even if it allocates it. Now simply starting the game doesn't mean you're ok, you have to make sure it actually execs your autoexec by connecting to a server (perhaps BBA2?), bringing down the console (~) and typing
/exec autoexec.cfg
It will most likely tell you have you have to restart for com_hunkmegs to be set, so do so. You should be good from this point on.

The other way, is to create or modify the existing shortcut you use for the game. Right-click it and go to properties. In the target box, it'll most likely say something like
"E:\Program Files\Wolfenstein - Enemy Territory\et.exe"
You simply need to add
+set com_hunkmegs 192
to the end of this, so the full thing should look like this
"E:\Program Files\Wolfenstein - Enemy Territory\et.exe" +set com_hunkmegs 192
No need for any restarts, just start up and play.
