Hi all. I just got Call of Duty and UO (better late than never, right) and I am wondering how to install the patches. I see that there is a 1.5 patch and a 1.4 mutiplayer patch. Do I install both patches or is 1.5 good on it's own? As well, where are the good places to play on-line? Thanks.
UO is already version 1.4 and will update CoD to 1.4 as well, if you want to install 1.5 as well just download the patch and follow the instructions. As for good places to play im sure everyone will say something different so just try a few servers out a find one you like :)
Thanks for the info, Irish. By "good places to play" I guess I should have said "where" do most people play? When I go to multiplayer via the game no servers come up. So I figure that people are playing elsewhere. Gamespy perhaps?
No problem, as for servers, there are 168 up (on UO 1.4) at this very moment, i believe there are even more on 1.5 so people are playing and they should come up in your list. Ensure that when you are searching for a server you are on 'internet' and not 'local' or 'favorites', also ensure your filters are set to show the most amount of servers, ie show empty = yes etc. Also ensure that your firewall is set up to allow coduomp.exe to access the internet. If you have a router this may also be an issue but it shouldnt be, you cant host a server (unless you configure your router) but should be able to see others. Someone else also just bought the game on this forum and couldnt see any servers either so maybe it a problem with the new release of the game?? (looks to tally for the answer :))
hi - ditto what IRI5H has said. go to 1.5 for COD and 1.51 for UO. start here: https://activision.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/activision.cfg/php/enduser/atvi_patches.php multiplayer - there are 3000+ servers. the ones you see depends on your filter options. and of course, as IRI5H said - make sure you choose internet, cable....
