what does it mean fatal error could not load default.cfg? :(
4. Error Message: "Couldn't Load Default.cfg"
If you try to run Call of Duty™ and receive the error message, "Couldn't Load default.cfg,” this indicates that the program cannot find the "\main" directory that is essential to its proper function. This error commonly occurs when you install the game with no directory specified. For example, if you choose to install it to a hard drive or partition other than the C: drive (that is, D:,E:, etc.), but fail to specify a folder, the game will install everything to the root of the hard drive and the game will not launch.
If you want to install the game to a hard drive other than the default setting (C:), please make sure you specify a folder when choosing the other drive (i.e.: D:\Call Of Duty).
There might be another reason for this error. but this is somewhere to start.
The error also occurs when one of the necessary default.cfg files (there are 3) are corrupt. You can replace them. There are 3 files that contain a default.cfg file - pak0.pk3, pak2.pk3, and pak5.pk3 Here's how: 1. Place your COD CDs in the ROM drive. When the game menu comes up close it. 2. Double click on 'My Computer', and right click the CD icon, left click 'explore'. 3. Find the folders 'Data' in both CDs, and find any of the files I just mentioned. 4. Copy the files, and then paste them into the COD 'Main' folder in the installed game. 5. When pormpted to confirm whether you want to replace them, click 'yes'.
right,i tryed to folow your instructions,but when i clicked on explore i saw 14 icons but no any of pk3 files,where are they,i`m confused,help me dude.
When you explore your CD there will be a folder called 'Data' (re-read my post). The pk3 files are in those folders (there is a 'data' folder on both CDs).
