Welcome to Wolfenstein Enemy Territory : Legacy - a project that aims to create a fully compatible client and server for the popular online FPS game Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory - the best multiplayer game ever.

We consider ourselves as a community of developers and users keeping Wolfenstein Enemy Territory alive and up to date. Many thanks to Splash Damage for their release of the source code, Unvanquished & raedwulf-et (especially Ralph Eastwood) for our code base and ioQuake3 for their patches (especially /dev/humancontroller). Kudos!

ET: Legacy Development

ET: Legacy is based on the source code of Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory which was released under the GPLv3 license. The main goal of this project is to fix bugs, remove old dependencies and make it playable on all major operating systems while still remaining compatible with the ET 2.60b version and as many of its mods as possible.
