Ok I'm a noob to CoD, so if this has been asked before I apologize.... I recently purchased CoD (do not have UO...yet), I have downloaded the patch 1.5 then went crazy DLing Mods/custom maps and I can't get any of the maps to work. Now I read the read me files on the ones that had some and all they said to do was to move the file into my CoD main folder. I've done this and I still can't see/play the SP maps or the MP ones. I know it's error on my part so what must I do to fix this?
If you have the maps in the main folder of Call of Duty, you've got to make sure you havent got too many, as one user has found that he could only have around 50 - 60 maps lol.
Single player maps are loaded via the devmap command that you type in through the console.
Multiplayer maps are automatically loaded when you join a server or run a server.
Would you tell me a little more about the devmap command. I am unaware of this command. Thank you btw for your help in this matter.
open the console in the mode you want either single player or multiplayer by pressing the ` key (top left next to 1 and below the Esc key)
Now type in /devmap
this should now launch the sp or mp mode for that map.
Ok, I'm starting to get it, but the one thing that keeps me from understanding is I do not understand by what you mean when you say console. Do you mean to start the game in the SP or MP then hit the ` or is there a "Console" file that needs to be activated? Now remember I am really new at this, so you kind of have to walk me through the process from start to finish and please be specific (I most definitely do not know all that you know about this). I do not mean to be a pain, please bare with me.
start the game Call of Duty Single Player or Call of Duty Multiplayer (depending which mode you want) then when your presented with the main menu of Call of Duty press the ` key (next to 1 below Esc key) that will show you a black screen at the top (console) now this is where you type in the following:
like if you had a single player map called streets.pk3 you would type in:
or if that didnt work:
Ah ha! Ok it worked for MP, but not for SP. The black screen didn't even drop down, like it did for the MP. Any ideas?
To get the console enabled on the Single player mode you may have to enable the cheats:
Then you'll beable to have the console.

to get the console down... go options, then look in all options and see if u can find "enable console" or "us console" or something like that, when i first bough my copy (about a week ago) i was changing controls and stuff and i saw that console thing, and it was selected as no... so i made it yes!:) yay! then try the ` key and a rectangle thing should come down;)
