1. ET is still alive?

Yes. It's not as active as it used to be, but there are still plenty of teams and players around. Competitions are being run on a regular basis, and a LAN with twenty-five teams just took place in April.

2. What happened to

Crossfire was updated to version 4.0 in July 2012 with a new layout and many new features and functions.

3. Can I use CGAC outside of CG?

Not really. The anticheat is integrated in the CG website and uses a match ID system, so it's only available for official matches. This means it cannot be used on public servers or in IRC wars. However, it is still entirely possible to play with CGAC in community competitions hosted on CG.

4. Where can I find the CG ban list or more information about a specific ban?

Check out the CyberGamer EU group on Crossfire:

5. How do I fix my FPS lag?

The most common solution for this is r_primitives 2.
