Hello all, I just recently downloaded a scope skin, and put it in the right folder, but when I started to play a game, the crosshair was fine but only a 1/4 of my scope was there. I hope someone can help me. Thanks.:confused:

Sounds like the mod isnt running properly.

tell me a little more about the scope mod and how your using it:

What images and folders are you using?

Is the mod packed up as a pk3 file?

is it COD or UO we talking about here?

Is it going into the main (for COD) or uo (for UO) folder?

Yes it is in a PK3, the read-me says put into the "main" file, but I tried it in "main", it wouldn't play on CoD or UO, then I put it into the into the UO and it did the same thing. Hope this helps. Thanks.

where dod you get the mod. The reason I ask is coz I need to have a look at it to see what the problem is.

What is supposed to happen? what effect is it meant to give you? I might be able to fix it for you if you could let me have a copy or if you tell me the download source.

I got the mod at "callofduty.filefront.com" and it's supposed to give you either a red dot or blue dot crosshair and a red or blue dot scope. It's in miscellaneous skins, the very last one it's called "Wraiths cod Crosshairs." Or you could just type it in search bar, that also works. Thanks.

edit:

Oh, and yes I am playing it on a non-pure server.

Right, ok. Its due to the 1.4 - 1.5 patch, and punkbuster. If you look at the date of the mod, it is july 2003 - before 1.4. Before that patch came out several mods where around which used the (built in) red-dot crosshair (I used to use one called the deaths-head mod). But there were so many hacks that used something similar that punkbuster had to have them stopped (coz it had difficulty telling the difference between a hack and a legit mod). so that is why it doesnt work.

Fear not, though, for if you use AWE 2.12 for COD, you can still have the 'laser sight' (red or blue) crosshair which will work with COD 1.5.

Ok, so where do I put the skin, in the "awe_cod" folder, the "awe_uo" folder or the regular "main" folder.

create a new folder inside the COD folder (i.e. next to all the other folders, such as 'main', 'miles', and 'punkbuster'). Call it simply, 'awe'.

This is known as an fs_game directory. You will start your server using this as the mian start point.

Place the AWE mod inside this 'awe' folder. also your server config file (with your server settings in it). Also, your AWE config file goes in here.

You boot the mod via 2 files: your server config file, and the AWE file. Your server config (.cfg) should have this in it, at the end:

exec awe.cfg

Place your map rotation at the end of the AWE config file. The AWE settings must be executed BEFORE the first map loads.

Now, this is the bit that puzzles most people, you need to make a server startup shortcut.

Copy your existing CODMP.exe file, and paste it onto the desktop. right click it, and you will see a box called 'target':

shortcut1.gif

Place your cursor in there and press the 'End' key, and that will take the cursor to the end of the line. Add this:

+set fs_game awe +exec yourserverfile.cfg +map_rotate

Here is a shot of one of mine:

shortcut2.gif

As you can see, the 'switch' as it is called, is placed at the end. the details are a little different in the example, but i think the piont is made: name the server file to be executed as whatever you have named it. I have called mine COD2.cfg for my second server.

Once this is done, when you double click the shortcut your server should start, and the AWE settings will take effect.

It sounds complicated, but it isnt once you get the hang of whats supposed to be happing.
