As most of you people know, running Cod on a dual-core is asking for problems :(. The regular problems are: *Soldiers freeze so you need to ''activate'' by shooting them. *After completing an objective, no new objective pops up. *and other problems like in the first russian mission in stalingrad. When you get blast out of the bout, you first objective is to get a gun and some ammo. When you stand in the line, the soldier giving the guns to the passing soldiers freezes. (:mad:) So youre kind of blocked in the game and you need to restert the game or even your computer and some problems won't go away at all. So i googled it and the solution i fouynd for it was that you open taskmanager while running the game and secect the procces and right click it and select 1 processor. Ok, i go back to the game and wath do i see? nothing at all! it didn't change bit! (agian :mad:) So i'm asking you guys to hewlp me find a solution cos' there are a lot of people with a dual-core playing CoD. also, here are my sys specs. AMD 64 Athlon X2 winVista nvidia Geforce 7000m / nforce 610 (yes i have a crappy video card, but it should be good for CoD) thanks in advance, n00bst3R

A dualcore is great for CoD2 unless its 2.2 GHz or something like that. I have a C2D 2.66 GHz and works great.

I'm pretty sure he's talking about COD1; not COD2
yep, its CoD1 not CoD2 (but i do have CoD2, but i just wanted to play CoD without problems)
How many dogs are Pb'd?Maybe 2

it may not be just the fact that you are using dual core. It may be that you are using vista to boot.
I fight for myself.

I signed in just to solve this for you. Cod1 does have issues with Duel core machines. I had the same issues. There is a workaround though worked on my Xp machine. it may require tinkering to work on Vista though.
Start the game up as normal, Open up the task manager (normally control+alt+delete). Right click the Call of Duty game in applications and click go to process. Task manager should then have the Call of Duty process highlighted, right click it and press select affinity.
Click CPU 0 then ok and go back to the game. You will have to do this for every time you run the game. That maybe the reason.
Failing that try a program called CPU Grabber, it reduces a pc from using all the cpu power.
And do double check your not accidentally running it in Direct X 10 mode.
1) i tried running on 1 affinity like i said before 2) the cause of the problem could be Vista
thanks by the way for all the help, but i'm still not getting a solution.:(
So setting the affinity to 1CPU didn't help Using compatibilty mode didn't help neither... Thanks anyway, Noobst3R (srr for the double post, but i'm trying to keep it alive some day someone sees it)
