HarryHomers FAQ's and help #5.

Are you receiving a hunkmegs allocation error ?

This usually means that your settings are set to the default of 56, to be able to continue playing on the map that you where kicked from you must change your hunkmegs from 56 to either 128 or 256

There are two ways of changing this.
1. In console. With this option you remain in game to change the hunkmegs.
2. In a Text Editor. With this method you quit the game and change the profile/etconfig.cfg files with a text editor such as notepad.

The game console method.

You make the change in the hunkmegs temporary or perment.
To make and changes you must open the console by pushing the tilda key (` ) (the key under the escape key)

To check what your hunkmegs are set, type /com_hunkmegs in the console and push enter (see number 1)
It will then show what your hunkmegs are set to and report what the default setting is.

To make a permenant change type in the console /seta com_hunkmegs 128 or /seta com_hunkmegs 256 (see number 2 below)
If it has been successful you should the reply com_hunkmegs will be changed upon restarting this means it will be changed when once you have quit ET and restarted the game.

To make the change a temporary one type in the console /set com_hunkmegs 128 or /set com_hunkmegs 256 (see number 3 below)
