I lost all my perks and my "create a class" button isn't highlighted and doesn't work anymore. I was at level 52, now I'm back to level 3. I can still play but I only get the default weapons. Where is this info kept? Is there a way to restore my previous ratings and classes? Thanks.
first question do you have the game on more than one drive?
Only on one hard drive. Something else I just noticed. I had another profile set up in my game for a friend. It never really got used any. But now it's gone and I didn't delete it. I still have the same profile I have always used though and that's the only one I have now. But what happened to the other one? What the ??? is going on? Add: OK this is really getting weird. I now have a mod titled "ModWarfare" in my mod section that I didn't put their. Yes ModWarfare, not Modern Warfare. I never noticed it being there before. When I click on it it brings up a mp screen similar to the original only the "ern" in Modern is X'ed out so it reads ModWarfare. I haven't downloaded any mods. I didn't even know any existed yet for COD4.
Mod tools were released on the 18th and people have been doing bits and pieces since the game came out.
If you have lost your rank do to an issue on your hdd then you have lost those ranks. But all hope is not lost ( maybe). If you have windows restore on there. You may be able to recover that file that has been lost ... DOWNLOAD, this will help you when you get your ranks back.
Thanks. What file would that data would be kept in? There are a few files in my profile folder, mpdata, config, and config_mp. Thanks a lot for the back up program. I will use it regularly.
I got my old profile back! I done a search on my entire c drive for mpdata. I found a backup profile in, C:\Users\"my user account"\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files (x86)\Activision\Call of Duty 4 - Modern Warfare\players\profiles... I don't know how it got there, or why I lost it to begin with. Anyway, I renamed the new one for backup just in case the old one was corrupted, then just copied the old one over, started the game and I got everything back. Even my friends profile. Cool! I hope anyone else who has this problem sees this. Thanks again for the replies and help.
