If ever you need to your game back without running it from the installer, follow those instructions and you should be good to go.

The principles are the same, yes. The regfile will need adjusting to suit COD2 install. Best thing to do is, if you havent uninstalled yet, back up your registry details for COD2. Got to start > run. Type in regedit. When the registry editor is up, navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE. Find SOFTWARE. Find the Activision folder and open it. Find the Call of Duty 2 folder and open it. At the top left of Reg editor, click on File > export. Save the file to a destination of your choice.

Download a COD2 regfile from here:

DOWNLOAD HERE

Follow the instructions in the original post, adjusting the details as you go. You only really have to enter your CD key and install path.

Yeah, I got the patch in Rar format - no need to install it. Let me upload it to my webspace.

Doing it now.

You dont install this patch. Its in extracted form. Its just Rared up (compressed). You just open the file with WinRar, and then add the files and folders to COD2 1.0.

This will bring MP up to 1.3 but you will need to edit the registry entry 'version' to reflect that fact.

=====================

EDIT

Here you go:

COD2 1.3 PATCH RAR DOWNLOAD

lol ty alot for helping tally, but if got yet another problem MP runs fine, but when i try to run SP, this box comes up that says: Error during installation: Failed to initialize renderer:version mismatch. i changed the version in regedit to 1.3, but it still comes up. And after i closed that error box, the COD2 console came up and read: CoD2 1.0 build win-x86 Oct 6 2005 ----- FS_Startup ----- Current language: english Current search path: C:\Program Files\Activision\Call of Duty 2\main\z132.iwd (20 files) C:\Program Files\Activision\Call of Duty 2\main\s1.iwd (21 files) C:\Program Files\Activision\Call of Duty 2\main\libya.iwd (7 files) C:\Program Files\Activision\Call of Duty 2\main\iw_15.iwd (85 files) C:\Program Files\Activision\Call of Duty 2\main\iw_14.iwd (4038 files) C:\Program Files\Activision\Call of Duty 2\main\iw_13.iwd (22624 files) C:\Program Files\Activision\Call of Duty 2\main\iw_12.iwd (1016 files) C:\Program Files\Activision\Call of Duty 2\main\iw_11.iwd (1462 files) C:\Program Files\Activision\Call of Duty 2\main\iw_10.iwd (1936 files) C:\Program Files\Activision\Call of Duty 2\main\iw_09.iwd (2142 files) C:\Program Files\Activision\Call of Duty 2\main\iw_08.iwd (2723 files) C:\Program Files\Activision\Call of Duty 2\main\iw_07.iwd (3384 files) C:\Program Files\Activision\Call of Duty 2\main\iw_06.iwd (990 files) C:\Program Files\Activision\Call of Duty 2\main\iw_05.iwd (928 files) C:\Program Files\Activision\Call of Duty 2\main\iw_04.iwd (698 files) C:\Program Files\Activision\Call of Duty 2\main\iw_03.iwd (26 files) C:\Program Files\Activision\Call of Duty 2\main\iw_02.iwd (40 files) C:\Program Files\Activision\Call of Duty 2\main\iw_01.iwd (16 files) C:\Program Files\Activision\Call of Duty 2\main\iw_00.iwd (102 files) C:\Program Files\Activision\Call of Duty 2/main C:\Program Files\Activision\Call of Duty 2/raw C:\Program Files\Activision\Call of Duty 2/raw_shared C:\Program Files\Activision\Call of Duty 2/devraw C:\Program Files\Activision\Call of Duty 2/devraw_shared C:\Program Files\Activision\Call of Duty 2\main\localized_english_iw10.iwd (414 files) localized assets iwd file for english C:\Program Files\Activision\Call of Duty 2\main\localized_english_iw09.iwd (98 files) localized assets iwd file for english C:\Program Files\Activision\Call of Duty 2\main\localized_english_iw08.iwd (8 files) localized assets iwd file for english C:\Program Files\Activision\Call of Duty 2\main\localized_english_iw07.iwd (1014 files) localized assets iwd file for english C:\Program Files\Activision\Call of Duty 2\main\localized_english_iw06.iwd (3110 files) localized assets iwd file for english C:\Program Files\Activision\Call of Duty 2\main\localized_english_iw05.iwd (5310 files) localized assets iwd file for english C:\Program Files\Activision\Call of Duty 2\main\localized_english_iw04.iwd (6240 files) localized assets iwd file for english C:\Program Files\Activision\Call of Duty 2\main\localized_english_iw03.iwd (6580 files) localized assets iwd file for english C:\Program Files\Activision\Call of Duty 2\main\localized_english_iw02.iwd (6404 files) localized assets iwd file for english C:\Program Files\Activision\Call of Duty 2\main\localized_english_iw01.iwd (5510 files) localized assets iwd file for english C:\Program Files\Activision\Call of Duty 2\main\localized_english_iw00.iwd (4764 files) localized assets iwd file for english File Handles: ---------------------- 81710 files in iwd files execing default.cfg couldn't exec language.cfg execing players/MrMan/config.cfg Measured CPU speed is 1.99 GHz System memory is 256 MB (capped at 1 GB) Video card is "NVIDIA GeForce4 MX 420" Streaming SIMD Extensions (SSE) supported ----- Client Initialization ----- ----- Initializing Renderer ---- Mismatched REF_API_VERSION: expected 60, got 59 ------------------------------- Error during initialization: Failed to initialize renderer: version mismatch. is there something else i need to do?
