Hi, I don't usually go on these forums, but I figured this is a must. You see, I've recently bought Call of Duty, and I definitely love the game. So, as you might know, i am a gore-phile, so I decided to spice up COD with the Merciless blood mod 0.5. I'm pleased with it, but it's not as violent as I see in the screenshots and it says that problems in it can be fixed with patch 1.3 and higher. So I immediately downloaded them, only to be surprised with the "Setup Could not Find Call of Duty Directory", and I of course, had to exit. This is extremely frustrating, as I've spent nearly 5 hours downloading useless patches, changing the registry files, and I'm sure that this copy of the game is legit, but the 1.5 patch for COD tells me my serial is freakin' BAD! I am so mad, and I'm wondering if the not-as-much-as-promised-blood in the mod is due to my hardware, or due to the patch. So, I'll be glad to know if there is a manual patch which instead of an installer, I could just drag those files into my directory. Please, please, help would be greatly appreciated. Until then, i consider myself :0wned: :(
By the way, the un-pleasant gore I was talking about was that I didn't see bullet marks, blood dripping out of specific places where i shot enemy soldiers, which was in the screenshots for the mod for all you people popular with this game, I didn't see any blood pools dripping out after soldiers are dead, and I did not see decapitations! >.<
Plus, if this has to do with my hardware, here's my dxdiag.txt

have you tried reinstalling yet? :nodding:
First off, there are no "manual install" patches for COD/UO any longer. Everyone who had downloads for them have moved on to other games now.
Secondly, your problem is all to do with your registry entry. So, please take a screenshot of your COD registry entry, and post it up.
BTW - I edited your huge post, and got rid of all the irrelevant DXdiag crap, as its not helpful to the problem, and just takes up too much forum space.
registry entry? would be nice if you told me what that is :P and yes, i've reinstalled like 50000 times. maybe i should never buy from ebay again ._.
