Everything worked great with the 1.4 patch, even behind a router firewall. Playing CODUO was the greatest since sliced bread. Saw that a couple of patches were out (1.5 and 1.51). Figured 1.51 also included 1.5, so I patched it with 1.51. Now I have all sorts of probs with connecting and auto-downloading. Every now and then, if I'm lucky, I can connect to a random server and play. I was playing on FKS's servers alot before this. Now, I can't even connect. Keep getting the "awaiting connection...(countup)". I get this on almost every server I try, but not all. And when I get to actually connect to a server that has a map I don't have, the autodownloading screen comes up and the bar never moves. It justs sits there doing nothing and I have to exit out. Read where I have to config my router or something, but I didn't have to do that before 1.51. Is this something new that was with 1.51? A guy at work said he just installed the 1.5 patch and everything is fine now. So I did that and it didn't change a thing. After patching with the 1.5, I tried to repatch the 1.51, and it said that it was already installed and I didn't need to do it. Thinking about doin a re-install of the whole game. Do I need to install each patch in order or can I just do 1.51 and all the previous patches included? It's gotten to the point that I don't even won't to jack with it anymore. Sorry to ask so many questions bout this, but I want to play this great game badly. LOL.
Ok, for clarification, 1.5 is for COD; 1.51 is for UO. And you need both patches to join the appropriate servers.
When these patches are installed, your router/firewall need to be told to allow them, as they are effectively new progs.
But from the sound of it you do need to uninstall. Make sure you delete the COD folder (it will do it for both games) from the directory where you installed it (default C:/Progream Files).
Once you've insalled basic COD (1.0), check the pk3 files. These are the sizes they should be:
Call of Duty version 1.0
localized_english_pak0.pk3, 167,895,169 bytes
localized_english_pak1.pk3, 126,070,475 bytes
pak0.pk3, 167,014,921 bytes
pak1.pk3, 165,964,103 bytes
pak2.pk3, 165,555,454 bytes
pak3.pk3, 167,888,227 bytes
pak4.pk3, 167,607,183 bytes
pak5.pk3, 80,540,215 bytes
pak6.pk3, 613,326 bytes
Once you've done this, try the game - both sp and mp (there are a few 1.0 servers out there ). If all is ok, reinstall UO. No need for 1.4 as UO has it built into the game. Try this as well to see if it works. If all ok, then download the 1.5 for COD patch, and the 1.51 for UO patch. Get them from here:
Everything should work then. One word of advice - disable downloading maps from the game. Easy and quicker to make a note of the map and download from the source.
Tally, I appreciate the time you took to clarify all this.
I will try this and let you know what happens. Hopefully, this also may help others who have the same problem. Thank you.
I uninstalled COD completely. Deleted COD folder after uninstallation. Reinstalled COD, applied 1.5 patch. (told me patch 1.5 was available) Reinstalled CODUO, applied 1.51 patch. (told me patch 1.51 was available) That's all I did. Just did what the game told me too, lol. Almost too simple. Now, all is great. Even tried the autodownloading. It worked too. If anyone is having any trouble, just try this. Thanks Tally, you pointed me in the right direction.
np :D Glad everything worked out for you bud.
